  • Solar Thermal Action Plan for Europe

     Ten years ago, the European Commission published its White Paper on Renewables, proposing a Community Strategy and Action Plan. Since then, European Directives to promote renewables in the electricity sector and in the transport sector have been successful in kicking off substantial growth in these two sectors. However, the renewable heating and cooling (RES-H) sector has been neglected at ...

  • Solar thermal power coming to a boil

    After emerging in 2006 from 15 years of hibernation, the solar thermal power industry experienced a surge in 2007, with 100 megawatts of new capacity coming online worldwide. During the 1990s, cheap fossil fuels, combined with a loss of state and federal incentives, put a damper on solar thermal power development. However, recent increases in energy prices, escalating concerns about global ...

  • 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 brighter future for solar in Texas

    I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. - Thomas Edison, in conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, 1931 According to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO), Texas has the greatest solar energy potential of any state in the country. “If photovoltaic (PV) systems operating ...

  • Solar Energy and Power Importance

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Burning Facts About Solar

    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 find. When talking about the development of solar ...
