Renewable energy (RE) sources become significantly important due to climate change and global warming concerns. Basically, the renewable energy sources such as sunlight, wind, tides, and geothermal are constantly generated from the natural process and those energies can be used to generate electricity energy. Meanwhile, the International Energy Agency (IEA) defined the renewable energy as follows [1]: “Renewable energy is derived from natural processes that are replenished constantly. In its various forms, it derives directly from the sun, or from heat generated deep within the earth. Included in the definition is electricity and heat generated from solar, wind, ocean, hydropower, biomass, geothermal resources, and biofuels and hydrogen derived from renewable resources.” According to the Renewables 2010 Global Status Report [2], from the end of 2004, worldwide renewable energy capacity grew at rates of 10 – 60% annually for many renewable-based-technologies such as solar photovoltaic (PV), wind power, solar hot watering/heating, ethanol production, solar thermal power, geothermal power and biodiesel production. Wind power and many other renewable-based-technologies, growth accelerated in 2009 relative to the previous four years. However, grid-connected PV increased the fastest compared to all renewable-based-technologies, with a 60% annual average growth rate.
