  • Adapting TPV for Use in a Standard Home Heating Furnace

    Abstract, A novel TPV configuration will be presented that can fit into a standard home furnace cabinet. This system incorporates an externally faceted glass cylinder with a dichroic filter deposited on its outer surface and a GaSb IR cell array bonded to the outer surface on top of the filter. This cylindrical array is then surrounded with an envelope containing a low boiling point liquid for ...

  • What can you achieve with a solar system and battery?

    People often ask us about energy self-sufficiency. Just how hard is it to get to that point where you no longer have to pay a large corporation each time you turn on the kettle? This will depend on your usage patterns but for most people, a mix of renewable systems is the best option. We’ve taken a look at Gabriel’s home renewable systems as an example. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Gabriel ...

  • Handyman`s Special!

    In January of 1998, Lou Ann and Kelvin Washington were in the market for a new home, away from their hectic jobs in Denver. They found their piece of heaven high on a hilltop in South Park, Colorado. But their new dream home came with some problems, including a power system that was not the best introduction to renewable energy. The house is 2,600 square feet (242 m2), passive solar, and ...

  • Beyond the Tesla Powerwall: How energy storage is shaping up in Ontario - How energy storage changes everything

    There are not many entrepreneurs who can command a room like Elon Musk. When he stepped onto a stage in May to unveil the Powerwall the audience oohed and ahhed and dutifully pre-ordered more than 38,000 of Tesla’s new home battery systems. And while Tesla gets the headlines other energy storage ...

  • Emerging Technologies – How will they change our lives?

    Forward planning by governmental agencies is often criticized for being too focused on short term political mandate priorities.  A recent report by Policy Horizons Canada, a federal government agency, on emerging technologies is a refreshing change from that norm.  The report explored how emerging technologies will shape the economy and our society, and what challenges (and ...

  • Take Your Bedroom Off the Grid

    In recent years there has been a growing interest in renewable energy. The problem is that many people cannot afford to implement a complete renewable energy system all at once. As interest grows and renewable energy equipment prices fall, people will not be ready to take advantage unless the industry and non-profits undertake serious public education. Redwood Alliance, an environmental ...

  • Ships that harvest electrical power from ocean waves

    Electrical power generation from ocean waves is possible from ships that harvests wave energy through daily trips to offshore locations and that return back to port for the delivery of energy to the grid. Energy is stored locally on the vessel during harvesting phase and placed on the grid during periods of high demand (normally mid-day). Unlike conventional wave-power devices, the ships ...

  • How Energy Storage Can Pave the Way for Renewable Energy Adoption

    Introduction Renewable energy offers a hopeful promise to reduce the energy sector’s carbon footprint, but many challenges must be addressed before it can be more extensively integrated into our society. One of the greatest barriers to widespread adoption is quite simply that due to the nature of renewable energy – the fact that it is produced only when solar rays, wind, etc. ...

  • The Bayl Primary School at Hong Hu lake (China)

    In June 2006 Fortis installed a Montana (5 kW) hybrid system at the Bayl Primary school at lake Hong Hu (Hubei province) in China. At the lake there live about 500 families on boats who life from catching fish and aquatic production on the lake and the sales of it. The families live in houseboats on the lake. Because they do not have any chance for grid connecting , wind energy and solar energy ...

  • Installing an ESD LH1000 A Micro hydro Evolution Article describing the installation of an ESD LH1000 low head machine

    Every morning, before brushing teeth or having a look at the weather outside our Victoria, Australia, off-grid home, my wife Carrie or I pad downstairs to the battery room to check the meters that monitor our electrical system. The reading determines whether we use the propane stove or the electric jug to heat water for our tea. Since our microhydro plant upgrade, it’s usually the jug. ...

  • Women Who Run with Tools

    Last February, a group of dedicated and enthusiastic women descended on Tucson, Arizona to learn how to incorporate solar energy into their lives. Though it hasn’t always been this way, women wielding power tools and installing solar electric equipment is becoming more common. For the past three years, Solar Energy International (SEI), an educational non-profit based in Carbondale, Colorado, has ...

  • The three S approach to uncertainty

    Life seems to be getting more and more uncertain. We are being warned about a Brexit rollercoaster and the oil price, at least in percentage terms, seems to be doing a good impersonation of an elevator; up one minute, down the next. All this uncertainty makes decision-making complex , especially when they concern long-life assets. Against this background I have been thinking about the question of ...
