Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Vs Pulverized Coal

Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Vs Pulverized Coal

Today almost all coal plants are using “pulverized coal” (PC) technology, this technology involves grinding the coal, burning it to make steam, and running the steam through a turbine to generate electricity. There is a latest technology known as integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), it converts coal into gas and that gas runs through a combustion turbine to generate electricity. This uses the excess heat also from that process to generate additional electricity via a steam turbine.

What Are Solar Power Plants?

What Are Solar Power Plants?

Man’s curiosity lead him to discover that he can use the energy coming form sun and use it to generate electricity. This is a renewable form of energy and is not a limited resource that will vanish like other sources to generate electricity.A solar power plant captures the sun rays and convert photons into electricity. Thus and efficient method to generate electricity.A solar power plant contains large number of solar panels, which are connected with each other.Its efficiency is dependent on the intensity of sunrays touching the panels.One of the issue related to solar power plant is space issue.Another issue is its initial development cost.

The Solar Power Battery Chargers

The Solar Power Battery Chargers

As we are living in a world of scarce resources and unlimited wants, our motive is to maximize our needs within limited resources. Energy is the main requirement of human beings for survival.Therefore, human is finding an alternate renewable form of energy and ultimately discovering solar energy to produce electricity.Thus this finding lead man to invent appliances that uses this form of energy and ultimately discovering solar power charger.A solar power charger stores the electricity that is produced using solar energy.With the invention of this device, you can use electricity round the clock.

Wind Turbine Goes Portable

Wind Turbine Goes Portable

This article is emphasizing on renewable energies and a wind generator Ecolic. These days everyone is talking about renewable energies. People are now more concerned about developing new ways of renewable energies. Just like that a new kind of wind generator has been designed named as “Ecolic”.

Most Common Solar Energy Misconceptions

Most Common Solar Energy Misconceptions

Changing your energy source is a commitment. Going solar is trigger enough to set off you commit-o-phoebes, especially with the wide range of myths out there to chose from? Well then, here’s to separating the milk from the myth

Global Warming Prevention

Global Warming Prevention

This article is emphasizing on Global Warming and its effects on our earth and on humans even. Global warming is becoming a serious issue for this world. We all need to take some innitiative in order to control it otherwise it will b e very dangerous for the whole world.

Conversion of Biomass into Energy

Conversion of Biomass into Energy

Ancient way of converting biomass into energy is just to burn it for producing heat, as humans practiced it for thousands of years. Still this is the most common way for conversion of biomass into energy in United States and elsewhere also.

Types of Biomass Energy

Types of Biomass Energy

There are numerous types of plants and so many ways from which energy can be produced in the world. Typically there are two approaches for using biomass energy, one is growing plants for energy use and second is using plant’s residues for other things. There is no best approach for using biomass energy because of climate differences from region to region, soils, geography, population and other such things.

Certain Advantages Of Biodiesel Fuel

Certain Advantages Of Biodiesel Fuel

biofuel is fast replacing the traditional fuels as it is not only far safer for the environment, it contains all the benefits of the traditional fuels. it keeps the engine clean and strong and provide equal mileage and horse power.

World’s Smallest Solar Powered Sensor

World’s Smallest Solar Powered Sensor

Researchers at the University of Michigan have been successful in developing an extremely tiny solar powered sensor. The solar sensor is said to be 1,000 times smaller as compared to other commercial counterparts.
