The energy is capable of being replenished and reused so it can render in various ways. This idea is referred as renewable energy and is being extensively studied and researched these days. Renewable energy can be obtained in various ways.

Solar Energy

Solar Energy

During one hour, the solar energy coming from the sun is enough for the world’s energy need for more than one year. Energy obtained this way does not need presence of sunlight all the time. The method used to convert solar energy into electricity is called photovoltaic panel. Hence solar energy is an example of renewable energy.

Wind Energy

Wind turbines are used to capture wind energy. So the wind energy is another example of renewable energy.

Passive Solar Home

Electricity is not the only objective to be achieved by the renewable energy concept. Energy can be obtained and captured by some inactive home designing as well. Having the concepts of simple laws of energy can be very effective. According to law of energy, heat transfers itself from warm surfaces to the cooler in order to maintain the difference of temperature. Passive solar home can be designed by understanding this law.

Role Of Radiation

Radiation plays important role in such scenario.   Read the full story

The use of solar panels is on the rise. Many people who want to save money are using solar panels to fulfill their energy needs. You can get the benefits of a residential power system. There are a few things which must be taken into consideration before setting up a residential solar power.

 

Position matters the most

The solar panels work on sunlight. They absorb sunlight and turn it into electricity or other forms of energy. Before installing your solar panels make sure that they are placed in position where they receive sufficient sunlight.

If your house is in an area which remains clouded or there are tall buildings, around it; which block sun most of the time, your solar panels may not work efficiently. If the solar panels don’t receive the required sunlight their performance will decrease.

For an optimized performance of the solar panel the tilt of the collector matters a lot. The panels should be tilted in the direction of the sunlight. If the panels are tilted low they will receive maximum sunlight during summer. Usually the tilt is same as that of the roof.

If you want the solar panels to collect maximum sunlight, position them in south. If they are positioned south they will receive sunlight for a long time. North is the least likely direction for your solar panels.

If you are trying to buy solar panels from abroad, the taxes will add up and you might have to pay more than the actual price of the panel. Solar panels are fragile items and can break up easily, if they are not packed properly. If you can’t find any place near you to buy these panels, make sure you receive them intact.

Make an insured delivery of the panels and try to seek a guarantee from the place where you are buying them or the delivery company which is sending you the panels. Therefore the better idea is that if you buy it from any place where you can pick them up yourself, they’ll be a lot much cheaper.

Many people have heard about the solar energy panels and intend to use them in their gardens and homes. Many want to use them in place of the regular electricity. But the problem is that people have heard of them, but do not know how to use them. The other thing that might be a matter of concern for people is that will the solar panels be enough to fulfill their energy needs. We will tell you about different types of solar panels which are available for your home and garden. The aim is to create basic understanding about the solar panels the types of solar panels available in the market. We will also elaborates the functioning and cost of solar panels and suggests what type of solar panels can a you use for your home and garden.

Photovoltaic Solar Panels

Understanding the functioning of Solar Panels

Like any other form of energy solar energy is also a form of energy. The laws of physics tell us that energy can be converted from one form into the other. Likewise solar energy can be converted into electricity or heat energy. The solar panels do the job; they convert light energy into electricity or heat. Combined with phosphorus, boron or other elements the solar panels are made from silicon plates. The aim is to create solar cells which produce negative and positive charges. The two thin solar panels i.e. photoelectric modules and solar thermal collector are microscopically thin rectangle boxes which absorb the sunlight and convert it to heat or electricity.

Why Solar panels?

The solar panels are more environment-friendly medium of energy. Compared to electricity, solar energy pollutes the environment to the least and does not emit harmful gases which prove harmful for the environment.

Keeping in view the importance of geothermal energy we shall put all efforts to cultivate geothermal energy techniques. This is a field which has marvelous growth opportunities and it simply harvests the natural energy present under the surface of our planet Earth. There are huge reserves of geothermal energy under the surface of earth. What we have to do is go for it and connect to pipe it up.

The Science of Geothermal Energy

The temperature at centre of our planet the Earth is more than 60 times greater than the boiling point of water. Such a huge temperature generates massive pressure deep under the surface of earth. The vast pressure contains immense quantity of energy in the form of heat and pressure. The pressure so generated develops channels to come out of surface of earth. We can observe this energy when hot fluids called magma flare-up from volcanoes. The idea of geothermal energy is to convert this energy into electricity which we can use for our domestic and industrial consumption. A vast quantity of magma is present deep under the surface of earth. We have to locate such sites where the deposits of magma are large enough to run our project economically. Than we have to develop the channels to release underground pressure. Erect a power generation plant and produce power.

Geothermal energy is the heat available from the earth. Now this heat can come from two main sources. One, the heat coming from the sun and the other is heat coming from the center of the earth itself.Theoretically speaking the geothermal energy is enough to meet all the energy demands of humans. But this whole heating potential is not extractable.

Geothermal Energy Due to Sun

The top surface of the earth is baked by the sun during the day. The earth conducts this heat underneath the surface. The effect of this is more pronounced during the winters – when the temperatures a few meters underground are 10-15 degrees Celsius.

Geothermal Energy from the Earth’s Core

Geothermal Energy from the Earth’s Core

The other source of geothermal energy is the hot center of our earth. The center of the earth has very high temperature of up to 6000 Celsius. Places which are more prone to volcanic eruption are mostly suitable for extracting geothermal energy. The hot pools and geysers are other apparent forms of geothermal energy at our disposal. The geothermal energy from the center of earth can be extracted by digging for deep pipelines which will require more cost.

Comparison of the Two Sources

The geothermal energy due to absorption of heat from sun rays is more uniform and can be used anywhere. This heat is mostly used to warm up the homes in cold countries.

Copying Nature’s photosynthesis Process To Convert Light Energy To Chemical Energy

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


One of the most interesting talks at AAAS is about a discovery that may ultimately give the much-vaunted hydrogen economy an opportunity. Daniel Nocera, Professor of Energy and Professor of Chemistry at MIT delivered a plenary lecture on a new catalyst produced in his research lab, one that gets inspiration from the photosynthetic pathways inside plant cells to break up body of water into H2 and O2, giving up the H2 to be utilized as fuel.

photosynthesis_1

Fulfilling the human’s future energy need is going to require the sun, said by Nocera, and that is only going to occur if we can stock that energy for utilization when it is not beaming. Plants developed to take advantage of high-power chemical bonds, and the oil, gas, and coal we presently utilize is just stored sunlight (thru plants), even though concentrated. Hydrogen is the single practicable solution compared to batteries, capacitors, or mechanical storage systems like pumped-up water or compressed air when you consider energy density and the work from his research laboratory may help do that possible.
