  • Solar PV Testing

    Introduction The time is now for clean, renewable energy technologies. Favorable government tax credits, a decreased dependency upon oil, and the need to stimulate the economy are just three of the planets that have aligned, favoring the expansion of technologies that harness the sun’s energy. Manufacturers of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) modules and panels strive to improve product effi ...

  • Solar`s Time to Rise and Shine.

    Photovoltaic efficiency records are being shattered, thanks to recent advances in materials science. Last month, a researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colo., loaded a postage stamp–sized solar cell onto a tray and placed it under a high-intensity pulse solar simulator. The simulator flashed a 2.5 millisecond pulse of light, and 19 mirrors reflected the ...

  • North Carolina Solar Installation Case Study

    Project Overview Patriot Solar Group (PSG) began working on initial racking designs during Summer of 2011.  At that time, the site was still yet to be cleared, but early soil testings confirmed that a driven post design would be suitable for the site conditions. PSG’s sales and engineering team worked closely with project engineers to ensure the racking design ...

  • In the World: Small Mexican village produces clean water with solar-powered system

    MIT-developed system runs autonomously, producing 1,000 liters per day. In a small village deep in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula — a day’s drive from any source of clean, drinkable water — researchers from MIT are testing a system that purifies water with the help of the sun. The relatively inexpensive system consists of several modest photovoltaic panels, a large ...

  • The entropy matrix generated exergy model for a Photovoltaic heat exchanger under critical operating conditions

    The maximum entropy generation approach is adopted to develop the exergy model for a Photovoltaic (PV) heat exchanger with vertical heat exchange sections under critical operation of buoyancy-induced hybrid airflow. The Photovoltaic (PV) heat exchanger was constructed with two adjacent Photovoltaic (PV) modules with double-glass faces and back panel and assembled on a wooden duct and framing ...

  • CO2 mitigation with thermal energy storage

    Thermal Energy Storage (TES) provides us with a flexible heating and/or cooling tool to combat global warming through conserving energy while utilising natural renewable energy resources. This paper aims to show how CO2 emissions can be decreased by utilising different TES concepts in Turkey. The first project is for the heating and cooling of a supermarket using Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage ...

  • Top ten United States retail chains with cleantech initiatives

    Many retailers are not looking at "going green" as just a fad, but rather a new route for businesses to focus on. As consumers become much more aware and start taking on a "green attitude" in relation to the environment, numerous retailers are looking to meet those needs. Today, numerous retailers are implementing a number of sustainable practices that enable them to become much more energy ...

  • Smarter grids, appliances, and consumers

    More and more utilities are beginning to realize that building large power plants just to handle peak daily and seasonal demand is a very costly way of managing an electricity system. Existing electricity grids are typically a patchwork of local grids that are simultaneously inefficient, wasteful, and dysfunctional in that they often are unable, for example, to move electricity surpluses to areas ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
