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 ...

Solar Energy and Power Importance

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

Have you ever wondered why solar energy or power is important? You are not alone in this because it is the common question of all. Before we can understand why solar energy is important we should have a good idea of what solar energy is. Solar energy is produced by the sun. It can be harnessed like any other type of energy and used to ...

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 ...

The Burning Facts About Solar

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Jun. 9, 2014)

Did you know that solar Energy comes in different forms?  As we all know, the development of solar energy is important because of its great contribution to our electricity sources. We might even think that it is just a simple development that deals about replacing and becoming one of the alternatives for our electricity sources that we can ...

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 ...

Oceans of Energy

by Ensia  (Mar. 10, 2014)

Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into ...

Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: peace for our children

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

Two centuries ago, U.S. President John Adams advised us of the importance of observing our world with clear eyes, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes and passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” Though there are some facts we all would rather not face, one of those unpleasant truths is that ...

CPV solar power system

by Power Inverter Co  (Feb. 25, 2014)

There are relatively few CPV applications still pursuing Si cells. The idea was somewhat "hot", no pun intended, when there was a silicon shortage going on, but silicon prices have dropped as new capacity has come online and the only successful CPV concepts being marketed which I know of are based on triple junction Ge/GaAs/InGaP or similar cells. ...

Solar hot water system

by Power Inverter Co  (Mar. 5, 2014)

Solar hot water systems (e.g. residential) do not produce steam, for example. Thus, solar hot water systems cannot push a steam turbine and will not generate electrical power. Solar hot water systems are used for heating and hot water requirements, not electrical power. If this is offsetting electrical hot water or electrical heat, then these ...
