    Right.

    Electromagnetic (light, in this case).
    This type of energy can be converted to electrical more efficiently than thermal energy can.

    You can also think of it as thermal energy conversion from a very hot (5800 K) body (the sun), and apply the Carnot efficiency limit (about 97%).
