How Does Solar Energy Transformed into Electricity?

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Jun. 23, 2014)

Many years ago, solar energy was never been the subject of all talks. Basically because the solar energy was never given that importance in people’s day to day life before. They just ignore and did not give attention on its importance. They fail to realize the importance of it. Now, as the period of modernized society where new technologies ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

by Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate  (Apr. 10, 2008)

This project aims to bring international research and undergraduate students from Partner countries to Australia’s University of New South Wales’ (UNSW) premier photovoltaic research group by providing tuition scholarships. Additionally, this project will assist in enhancing the photovoltaics knowledge and teaching resource base in Partner ...

Can the world make the transition to a sustainable economy driven by solar energy?

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 17, 2009)

Whatever other factors may be necessary, in the end a sustainable world economy is possible only if there is a perpetual source of energy to drive it. We explore the ability of the world economy to replace fossil and fissile energy sources with solar-flux-driven renewable energy sources using a natural capital accounting procedure known as ECCO, ...

Energy and exergy analysis of a double–pass thermoelectric solar air collector

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 12, 2013)

Analysis of energy and exergy has been performed for a double–pass thermoelectric (TE) solar air collector. The incident solar radiation heats up the absorber plate so that a temperature difference is created between the thermoelectric modules that generate a direct current. Only a small part of the absorbed solar radiation is converted to ...
