Solar Thermal System: Benefits Vs Problems?

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (May 26, 2014)

Solar thermal systems are the latest green renewable technology that derives energy from the sun to produce heat. This heat is then transferred to warm water for utilization or regulates temperatures within households, offices and even industries. Varying qualities of equipment results in variation of performance in terms of efficiency and ...

Green Energy Fuel by Briquettes Machine

by JK BioEnergy  (May 11, 2015)

Now a day’s demand of energy is increasing very rapidly but we have the limited sources to satisfy the energy requirements.  This energy demand is expected to grow almost by half over in the next two decades. So it is causing fear that our resources will run out by future. This will lead to shocking consequences of global economy. ...

Solar exergy maps for photovoltaic/thermal systems

by Inderscience Publishers  (Apr. 9, 2014)

In this paper, the thermal and electrical exergies and the exergy destructions are calculated for a photovoltaic thermal (PV/T) system based on solar exergy rates for some Indian climates namely Bangalore, Jodhpur, Mumbai, New Delhi and Srinagar for a year and for different US climates namely Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, Portland, San ...

Can the Solar Hourglass serve as a CSP landmark?

by Wind Energy Update - part of the FC Business Intelligence Ltd group  (Nov. 11, 2014)

A CSP project proposal has won first place in the 2014 Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) competition, but can the design make it beyond paper? By Heba Hashem October was an eventful month for Santiago Muros Cortés. The Argentina-based architect impressed the jury in Copenhagen with his plan for a Solar Hourglass that ...

Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

by Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTEC)  (Apr. 24, 2014)

Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found ...

Energy and exergy analyses of solar ponds in the Indian climatic conditions

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 4, 2014)

Energy and exergy analyses of a salinity–gradient solar pond (SGSP) (100 × 100 m²) are carried out in the Indian climatic conditions. It has been found that the highest amount of useful low–grade thermal energy, i.e., 24,260 and 28,119 MJ, can be extracted at 80 and 85°C temperature from heat storage zone (HSZ) of the solar ponds at New Delhi and ...
