Abstract

Solar energy, based on the achievements of modern photovoltaics, became an important factor in the development of the world fuel and energy complex at the beginning of the XXI century. The article analyzes the current state of solar energy, the main directions and prospects of its further development on example of China and Japan, the world leaders in this field. It is noted that such factors as inexhaustibility and environmental friendliness, high innovation potential and progressive cost reduction contribute to the growth of investment attractiveness of solar energy in these countries.
