Some College of Illinois scientists found techniques to produce more efficient Photovoltaic (PV) panels at lower costs. While silicon is the industry standard semiconductor in the majority of electronic units, including the pv cells that pv panels employ to transform sun rays into electricity, it is hardly the most efficient material readily available. For instance, [...]
Solar power is the conversion of sunlight to electricity.Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly with concentrating solar power (CSP), which normally focuses the sun’s energy to boil water which is then used to provide power, and technologies such as the Stirling engine dishes which use a Stirling cycle engine [...]
The idea of solar energy started over 100 years ago, but the technology hasn’t been as great as it is until today. With companies finding new ways to use renewable energy resources, solar energy is going to be more important. Solar energy is one of the best renewable energy sources because it is so abundant. [...]
Solar energy offers enormous potential for a tropical country like India where around 45% of households, mainly rural ones, do not have access to electricity, says a new research report “Indian Solar Energy Market Outlook 2012” from a leading research company RNCOS. India receives solar energy equivalent to more than 5,000 Trillion kWh per year, [...]
Every day, households around the world are using up the planet’s resources for energy. If this continues, these energy sources will be depleted quickly -unless alternative renewable energy sources are utilized. One of the energy sources that modern technology has recently put to good use is solar energy. Solar energy isn’t anything new, but new [...]
Yes you may say but how does solar energy works. Keep reading about how does solar energy works in the following paragraph. Solar energy can reduce your electric and heating bill by and incredible amount leaving you with the savings to enjoy life a little and save for the future. Solar energy is about a [...]
