  • Harnessing the Sun`s Energy for Water and Space Heating

    The pace of solar energy development is accelerating as the installation of rooftop solar water heaters takes off. Unlike solar photovoltaic (PV) panels that convert solar radiation into electricity, these "solar thermal collectors" use the sun's energy to heat water, space, or both. China had an estimated 168 million square meters (1.8 billion square feet) of rooftop solar thermal collectors ...

  • Case-study - Utilising waste heat for water production and climate control

    Water purification is needed to produce high quality water for consumption, agriculture and industrial needs. Conventional water treatment processes, like distillation and reverse osmosis, consume vast amounts of energy. However, there is a large potential for significant reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions in this sector. It can be achieved by the exploitation of waste heat for ...

  • What Are Solar Buildings Technologies?

    Solar buildings technologies use the non-polluting power of the sun to help heat, cool, and power our buildings. Because buildings now use one-third of the energy currently consumed in this country, the potential markets for using solar buildings technologies in place of conventional ones is substantial. Whether you're a home owner, architect, builder, business owner, or industry or utility ...

  • Large parabolic solar baskets

    I have recently designed and started manufacturing large parabolic solar baskets which will be proved to be the most revolutionary tool to produce local power in farms, in industries and in villages and to decentralize world economy from oil based to soil based. My solar baskets are one type of parabolic solar concentrators with short focal length which will be produced at the cheapest rates even ...

  • Water for an integrative climate paradigm

    By the logic of the New Water Paradigm (NWP), it is deforestation, industrial agriculture, and urbanisation that determine climate by draining land, so that more solar energy re-enters the atmosphere as sensible heat, rather than latent heat of evaporation. Human-made 'hot plates' lead to irregular precipitation and other climate destabilisation effects, but these can be mitigated through ...

This phenomenon is known by various names, ...


  • Closer Look at the Capacity of SLA Batteries and Solar Energy Systems

    Sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries have a reputation for being durable when used to support portable electronic devices. They require minimal maintenance and offer leak-proof capabilities. But when used with solar energy systems, the units present issues that can hinder the potential and performance of the machines. For example, general purpose SLA batteries should not be deep cycled, as ...

    The MWRA is a state government agency that provides wholesale water and sewer services to 2.5 million people and more than 5,500 large industrial users. It also monitors outflows in Cape Cod Bay and Boston Harbor using a range of advanced technologies. As an industrial user of electricity, agency officials are looking to reduce economic volatility from electricity costs and to improve energy ...

  • How big is the distributed energy opportunity for water and wastewater utilities?

    Energy costs for water utilities are large, and growing Energy is a significant cost for many water utilities, and costs are growing as more energy-intensive forms of water supply, including desalination, are being used. Energy is typically the second-largest utility budget item in developed countries, after labour. In many developing countries, energy can account for 70% or even more, of ...

  • If the well runs dry — climate change adaptation and water document actions

    'Our water is shut off once or twice a month, sometimes more,' says Baris Tekin from his apartment in Besiktas, an historic district of Istanbul, where he lives with his wife and daughter. 'We have about 50 litres of bottled water in the apartment for washing and cleaning, just in case. If the water is off for a really long time we go to my father's place or to my wife's parents,' says Baris, an ...
