A new concept for the storage system for renewable energy sources – “sun in a box”

MIT engineers have developed a new project that can store renewable energy sources such as solar or wind power. Such a system will help to provide uninterrupted power supply to even a small city, regardless of the presence of sunlight or wind. This report was published in the journal “Energy and Ecology”. The concept is… Continue reading A new concept for the storage system for renewable energy sources – “sun in a box”

The fight against smog in Beijing or the benefits of switching to solar energy

The air in Beijing, China is very often very polluted. Gray smog descends on the streets from exhaust gases, industry, coal smoke. Oxygen contains a huge amount of harmful particles, soot, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides. A dirty atmospheric layer causes irreparable harm to human health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), polluted air is… Continue reading The fight against smog in Beijing or the benefits of switching to solar energy

Proper Renewable Energy Tuning Could Help Texas Balance Energy Resources

Recent studies show the growing importance of wind and solar energy in the US state of Texas. One of the main issues is the timing of the installation of wind and solar power plants, which is in many ways an unacceptable factor for local suppliers of fossil electricity. Researchers at the Rice Institute have proposed… Continue reading Proper Renewable Energy Tuning Could Help Texas Balance Energy Resources

How solar energy is used

The partial use of solar energy by humans has been practiced since ancient times. Focusing beams, Archimedes burned enemy ships, and medieval peasants heated the air in the towers, which rotated the blades of mills. However, the large-scale use of solar energy began only in the 20th century. And after a few more decades, this… Continue reading How solar energy is used

PERC solar panels: technologies and features

Since about the mid-1980s, engineers have been actively working on the development of technology for reflecting the sun’s rays from the back surface of photovoltaic panels. This would significantly increase the absorption of light without increasing the cost of manufacturing the cells. Unfortunately, the technologies of that time did not allow achieving the desired result.… Continue reading PERC solar panels: technologies and features
