Morocco leans on Renewable Energy

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Sep. 18, 2013)

Morocco has no gas or oil gas resources on its territory. Therefore, the realm has to import about 90% of its electricity, totaling about one quarter of its overall importation. Buying energy from oversea is a huge investment for the country and Morocco is now turning to renewable energy to become self-sufficient in terms of energy. The country ...

V.E. Petersen Co., Inc., cuts energy usage by 30 percent with solar array built by Rudolph/Libbe Companies

by Rudolph/Libbe Companies  (Dec. 12, 2013)

A new, 28kW rooftop solar array is reducing energy costs usage by 30 percent for V.E. Petersen Co., Inc., based in Walbridge, OH.  Rudolph/Libbe Inc., of Walbridge, developed, designed and built the rooftop solar array. GEM Inc., of Walbridge, performed electrical work. The solar panels were manufactured by ISOFOTON, in Napoleon, ...

Development and performance evaluation of 0.16 m 2 solar point thermal energy collector compared with flat plate collector

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 9, 2013)

Renewable energy systems such as wind, solar and biomass are significantly more land intensive than traditional fossil fuels. Renewable energy increases diversity of energy supplies and can replace diminishing fossil fuel resources over the long run; their use in place of fossil fuels can substantially reduce greenhouse gases and other ...

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Sep. 11, 2013)

French Utility, EDF Energies Nouvelles, announced this Monday the implementation of the photovoltaic plant of Catalina through its American branch, EDF Renewable Energy. The construction of the photovoltaic plant started in May 2012 and started to be operational by December 2012. The plant has a 143 MW capacity and is located in the Mojave Desert ...

Producing Green Energy: Must Have

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Dec. 20, 2013)

In today’s world, everything we do almost revolve around power and power generating equipment are very necessary for that matter. Industrial, commercial and residential needs drive the need for the generation of power and power equipment. There is a very rapid growth of this need which begins in huge plants and then is disbursed using power ...

A primogenius study on characterisation of c-Si solar cell

by Inderscience Publishers  (Dec. 9, 2013)

The use of solar photovoltaic (PV) as distributed energy resources is increasingly being pursued as a supplement and alternative to conventional grid electricity. It has become an important source of energy because of its high reliability, requirement of very little maintenance and capability of generating power with no noise and emissions. ...

Oil and gas incumbents: the upside of cleantech collaboration

by GLOBE Foundation  (Mar. 20, 2014)

The global transition to a low-carbon economy is now inevitable. Yes, there will be winners and losers. To remain dominant, energy incumbents (like Enbridge and Royal Dutch Shell) must find scalable, low-carbon energy assets to develop. Cleantech collaborations—partnerships between traditional energy companies and emerging cleantech ...

Energy and exergy analysis of a solar–assisted heat pump space heating system for clear days

by Inderscience Publishers  (Apr. 22, 2013)

The studies over solar–assisted heat pump systems have been performed mostly on time periods when solar radiation is high. Therefore, this study focuses on performance analysis of a solar–assisted heat pump system which stores the energy during the clear day and uses it as a heat source of heat pump space heating system during the night. Energy ...

A hybrid wind/solar/diesel stand alone system optimisation for remote areas in Algeria

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 6, 2014)

While Algeria has an important potential of wind and solar energies, their share in the primary energy supply is relatively low compared to the fossil energy. In this paper, we propose to carry out a techno–economical study of a hybrid stand alone system in order to draw the attention to the feasibility of such systems. For this purpose, sites of ...

How will this new development in batteries make wind and solar power more completive?

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Apr. 15, 2014)

The trend is changing in obtaining energy from conventional sources to obtaining energy from solar and wind power units. The change in trend is due to this energy is considerably cheaper than the energy obtained from several other methods. Earlier an expensive metal was used over in the chargeable batteries for solar and wind units. Mostly these ...
