Exploration of energy technology market and the role of innovation in solar energy
form the core research hypothesis in this paper. There is a phenomenal growth
experienced in solar photovoltaic (PV) energy market. Technological advancements
have reduced the cost of solar PV generation and brought policy changes from
governments across the globe. Among the solar energy technologies, solar PV
system is becoming increasingly popular. Thus, there is a need to assess the pro-
poor technology solutions, including field performance, consumer adoption, grid
interconnection, energy storage and environmental impact assessment. This paper
examines the technical issues and challenges of components associated with the
generation of energy in solar PV plants. Emphasis is also given to solar PV
modelling. Finally, the paper analyzes the important studies from the perspective of
fault analysis and the need for energy storage and compiles them in a cohesive
manner to highlight the research gaps. There is a possibility that highly educated
consumers may misinterpret the information regarding solar energy and electricity.
Hence, this paper shall provide an insight thereby making an interaction between
industry-information-integration-communication with the society about new solar PV
energy technology and energy management system. Furthermore, the application of
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and its benefits together with the
environmental impact assessment (EIA) will be elaborated.

Solar energy systems (SESs) are considered as one of the most important
alternatives to conventional fossil fuels, due to its ability to convert solar energy
directly into heat and electricity without any negative environmental impact such as
greenhouse gas emissions. Utilizing nanofluid as a potential heat transfer fluid with
superior thermophysical properties is an effective method to enhance the thermal
performance of solar energy systems. The purpose of this review paper is the
investigation of the recent advances in the nanofluids’ applications in solar energy
systems, i.e., solar collectors (SCs), photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) systems, solar
thermoelectric devices, solar water heaters, solar-geothermal combined cooling
heating and power system (CCHP), evaporative cooling for greenhouses, and water
