  • Types of Solar Outdoor Lights

    Solar outdoor lights are slowly being taken up as a great alternative to grid lighting. This is actually a very good investment because it is very durable and provides good quality lighting for much less over time. It is also a green source of lighting since there are no emissions into the environment associated with solar lighting. Some people think that outdoor solar lighting is a ...

  • Bright future of solar lighting

    Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent lighting is accomplished. Gatherer ...

  • Are Solar Powered Drones The Way Forward?

    Just recently, Titan Aerospace released a video of a solar-powered drone that will be put through rigorous testing later on this year. Named the Solara 50, the drone can theoretically fly without having to land constantly to fuel up. The implications are numerous – from the fact that a drone that does not need to land can be used in the name of science, to the possibility that it might be ...

  • Enjoy Your Summer with Solar Outdoor Lighting

    The summer comes with very high temperatures and everyone is torn between enjoying the heat and succumbing to it. The evenings offer a much better environment because the temperatures are a little lower. The air is cooler and you can comfortably carry out your chores. At the end of a long hot day you would prefer to just relax and stretch out and what better place to do it than the ...

  • Case study - Bank energy costs

    There are many pleasures of living and working in the Cayman Islands. However, paying utility bills for your business on Cayman isn’t one of them. The island territory has particularly high energy costs because Cayman has few domestic energy resources. Most electricity on Cayman is produced from imported diesel fuel, which is very expensive. As a result, businesses on Grand Cayman pay ...

  • Prompting electron transport in mesoporous semiconductor electrode by simple film compression

    Tuning materials packing in the photoanode films through a simple cold isostatic pressing (CIP) post-treatment allows highly efficient charge transport and a dramatically retarded recombination that are witnessed by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) studies. The pressing post-treatment produces densely packed TiO 2 nanoparticle film with fewer relatively large vacancies and better ...

  • Recapping the Debate Over Whether Low-Carbon Economies Are Good for Tech

    To be of any use, tech products need power from electrical outlets, stored chemical energy such as batteries and generators, solar collectors, kinetic energy like my emergency hand-crank radio/charger, or other means. As more global and local regions move away from fossil-fuel-based power to low-carbon renewable power, I wonder how my colleagues in the tech industry would weigh in on a debate ...

  • Emerging Technologies – How will they change our lives?

    Forward planning by governmental agencies is often criticized for being too focused on short term political mandate priorities.  A recent report by Policy Horizons Canada, a federal government agency, on emerging technologies is a refreshing change from that norm.  The report explored how emerging technologies will shape the economy and our society, and what challenges (and ...

  • Understanding the impact of snow`s reflectance

    To help improve the accuracy of climate models, an international team involving the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has measured the reflectance of rough, snow-covered surfaces at large solar zenith angles. A crucial factor in climate models is Earth's albedo, which is the reflectance of Earth's surface: dark ground has a low albedo, reflecting little light, whereas ice and snow have a high ...

  • Enhancing Markets for Climate Friendly Technologies: Leadership Through Government Purchasing Strategies

    Scope of the study This study is one part of an effort which the member countries (see list below) of the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) are undertaking on Enhancing Markets for Climate Friendly Technologies.

  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...
