  • Building Energy Modeling 101: HVAC Design and Operation Use Case

    A great deal of energy use in buildings goes toward heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). In 2015, HVAC consumed 15.5 quads. The first step in reducing HVAC energy use is reducing heating and cooling load—i.e., the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building—typically by reducing heat from equipment and lighting; minimizing unnecessary ...

  • Tips on Cleaning Your Solar Lights

    Solar lights are not a common part of life or lighting in many households but they are gaining a bit of ground. Most of them are used outdoors and this means that they will definitely get dirty after a while. These lights require regular maintenance but the fact that these lights are placed outside means that you will probably check on them less often. You will find no moving ...

  • Solar Vs Grid-tied Lighting

    There are different types of connections that can be adopted to provide lighting in your home. Your choice will largely depend on what you want to use it for and how much of it you will need; even though everyone always wishes that they never have to miss a day of lighting. Grid-tied lighting is where the system is dependent on the main electricity grid but a solar panel is also part ...

  • Keep Your Solar Lights Squeaky Clean

    There are two schools of thought when it comes to cleaning your solar lights: either you should never have to do it, or you should do it regularly as part of the unit’s maintenance. As is often the case, there is truth in both sides. One of the major selling points for solar lighting is how low-maintenance it is. Enter the ...

  • For cheaper solar photovoltaic systems

    It is known for several decades, photovoltaic devices that exploit the sun's energy to convert into electricity used to provide a sustainable alternative - and potentially unlimited - the use of fossil fuels. So why these solar technologies have they not been adopted more widely? Simply “because they are too expensive," said Ji-Seon Kim, professor of Solid Physics at Imperial College of ...

  • Solar hot water system

    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 are more like 'negawatts' than Terawatts. Steam ...

  • A Decade of PV Lighting in the Colorado Rockies

    Backcountry skiing in the Colorado Rockies is exhilarating and exhausting.There’s nothing better after a hard day of skiing through fresh powder than ending up at a mountain hut miles from the nearest town with a wood burning stove, comfortable beds and solar-powered lights. This might sound like a dream too good to be true. Yet in the mountains between Aspen and Vail there is a system of ski ...

  • Visible and solar light photocatalytic disinfection of bacteria by N-doped TiO2

    A water treatment system was developed based on a photocatalytic process, employing immobilized N-doped TiO2, which worked under solar radiation. Batch reactor studies were conducted using an immobilized and suspended form of N-doped TiO2. Activities of Degussa P-25 and N-doped TiO2 were compared. Optimization of catalyst concentration was also carried out. Reaction rates ...
