When one creates a solar energy system, the important thing that is kept in mind is the method of collection. This is very important because if you want your solar energy system to be successful it must have an efficient collector which is able to collect energy from the sun in the best way possible. In the market one can find mainly three different types of collectors but the most popular and the most widely used collector in the market today is the Flat Plate collector.

What is A Flat Plate Collector?

What is A Flat Plate Collector

A flat plate collector basically consists of a rectangular box which is covered by a plastic glazing or a glass, and underneath this covering lays a metal plate. The heat is trapped in the rectangular box with the help of the plastic glazing or the glass covering. This heat is then absorbed by the metal plate which is colored to absorb maximum heat. This absorbed heat is then transferred to tubes which contain air or water. These tubes then carry this absorbed heat around the house and keep the house warm without the need of any heavy electrical appliances

Air and Liquid systems

There are two types of systems. One system contains air in the tubes and the other system contains liquid in the carrying tubes.

Air Systems

Air systems in which heat is carried around with the help of air are not very efficient. Read the full story

Biofuels can be created with the conversion of natural material into power in order to strengthen the people. These biofuels are also an alternative energy resource as against the relic sources of power that we are presently using.

Biofuels Chemicals

The umbrella of biofuels comprise of a chemical substance ethanol and end products of couple of plants, like sugar cane. These also consist of corn oils. It should, however, be kept in mind that complete set of ethanol products are not premeditated as a petrol source. In this regard The International Agency has disclosed that within the time of fifteen years, ten percent of global petrol will be made by ethanol. This figure will rise to 30% in 2050 and currently the amount is only 2%.

Energy Efficiency

Nonetheless, it is long process to purify these biofuels and make these usable. In this regard, the Oregon State University has also unearthed the fact through their research that still we need to widen the energy resourceful biofuels, because gas is prepared from the fuel. Energy efficiency gauges the total quantity of functional energy that we require is resultant of particular quantity of input power. So far, not enough energy has been derived for our needs.

Obama Stresses On Action Rather Than Talks

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

It was said by President Obama at the United Nations conference on climate change today that “there is no time to waste” in the battle against the warming of the planet.


He added that “Our ability to take collective action is in doubt right now,”. With most of the world leaders being skeptical of U.S. intentions, he cleared his intentions of coming to the conference by saying that he is here “not to talk, but to act.”

The question remains whether all the different countries will join together in the battle, or work independently and end up doing nothing.

According to Obama, the time for talk is over. Either all the nations can embrace this accord, taking a substantial step forward, making a better future for our children and grandchildren.

If we do not join together now, we will end up falling back into the same divisions that have stood in the way of action for years, continuing to have the same stale arguments month after month, year after year, perhaps decade after decade, while the danger of climate change grows until it is irreversible.

Obama further stressed his point by saying “Ladies and gentlemen, there is no time to waste. America has made our choice. We have charted our course, we have made our commitments, we will do what we say. Now, I believe that it’s the time for the nations and the people of the world to come together behind a common purpose.”

Obama’s arrival has given new anticipation to the talks, which have been help up due to differences between the United States and China, as well as divisions between wealthy and impoverished nations.
