Development of optimum solar irradiation energy model for Iran

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 19, 2009)

In this article, an optimal model for calculating the total solar irradiation is represented for Iran. Eight irradiation models are analysed based on the meteorology information of 22 synoptic stations. Afterwards, accuracy of these methods is compared using standard error criteria. Hence, Daneshyar and Modified Daneshyar are introduced as the ...

Quantitative assessment of solar energy geo-policy risks

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 6, 2011)

Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, gas, and wood, are the major part of contemporary energy mix. However, forecasts predict that solar energy will take up to 70% of global energy mix by year 2100. Solar energy has embedded risks, e.g., social, geopolitical, health-related, etc. These risks should be addressed in advance to prevent negative ...

Solar Energy has Little Impact on Birds

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Mar. 12, 2014)

People are not worried about the pollution coming from the renewable energy sources, because most of them do not produce significant amounts of pollution. The supplies, the process of how the supplies come to the source and the demolishing machines used to erect these renewable energy sources are the true culprits wreaking havoc environmentally. ...

Climbing the Solar Energy Ladder – New approach for energy-starved rural poor

by GLOBE Foundation  (May 12, 2015)

Access to electricity is crucial for sustainable economic development. Yet 1.3 billion people around the world live without basic access to electricity. Many of these people rely on unhealthy polluting kerosene lamps for nighttime lighting. Those with access to electricity in the developing world often rely on coal- or diesel-based grid power. ...

Renewable Energy a Big Employer with Solar Energy Sector in the Lead

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (May 19, 2014)

A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) has shown that the workforce in the global renewable energy industry in 2013 grew by 14% to 6.5million. Such statistics show that the sector has become a force to reckon with when it comes to employment worldwide. This report however contradicts the situation in the UK with the ...

Transparent conductors for solar energy and energy efficiency: a broad-brush picture

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jun. 25, 2009)

Transparent conductors (TCs) have numerous and diverse applications for solar energy applications and for energy efficiency. The largest of these applications, in terms of area, are based on the fact that the TCs have low infrared emittance and can be used to improve the thermal properties of modern fenestration. Depending on whether the TCs are ...

Solar desalination

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 20, 2007)

This paper outlines the state of the art in solar desalination, especially atmospheric and vacuum distillation with or without condensation heat recovery, and focuses on the ongoing progress and the targets achievable.Keywords: atmospheric distillation, vacuum distillation, condensation heat recovery, solar desalination, solar energy, solar ...

Solar Detoxification

by Federal Remediation Technologies Roundtable  (Oct. 1, 1999)

Introduction: In this process, vacuum extraction is used to remove contaminants from soils. After condensation, contaminants are mixed with a semiconductor catalyst such (e.g., titanium dioxide), and fed through a reactor which is illuminated by sunlight. Ultraviolet light activates the catalyst, which results in the formation of reactive ...

Tips for Solarization

by Istanbul Sera Plastik  (Feb. 28, 2014)

1-      In order to make plain use of sun energy during the application of solarisation, the cover should be cleaned if there is any dust over it. 2-      The area of application that will be treated should be processed up to 30-40 cm depth at first, the surface of ground should be balanced and ...
