And by the end of the next decade, to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, harmful to the atmosphere, to… Continue reading By the middle of this century, LG Electronics is completely switching to renewable energy sources
The renowned German company for the production of renewable energy systems has presented its new development – the MarcS solar arch. The products have not even entered the market yet, but have already won the first prestigious award – this year’s Intersolar Aword award. Solar arches are designed to be installed on agricultural land and… Continue reading Goldbeck Solar Unveils MarcS Solar Arch
In Spain, a solar experiment is being carried out – an entire block is being built in Zaragoza, which will receive electricity from solar panels installed on the roofs of houses. According to preliminary calculations of the organizers for the generation of electricity, two hundred residents and companies of the new district, who have decided… Continue reading Rooftop solar stations are being installed in the entire Spanish Quarter
In one of the smallest sovereign European states, an original startup has been developed to manufacture new generation photo modules. Solar panels are made from sand by special automated mini-factories called Terrabox. The Luxembourg-based sand photo panel startup is authored by Maana Electric, which says its factories are tiny and fit easily into shipping containers.… Continue reading Sand solar panels started to be produced in Luxembourg
The Umanpivo company plans to cover the energy consumption needs of its production facilities on its own by erecting solar stations on the roofs of breweries. For these purposes, the manufacturer plans to put into operation a 500 kW solar power plant in Uman, installing photocells on all roofs of suitable slopes at its production… Continue reading A solar station on the roof of the brewery will be installed in Uman
The largest Scottish office center in Glasgow is fully powered by wind farms. It is the first major facility to receive electricity exclusively from renewable energy sources in Scotland. The office building, which has an area of more than 300 thousand square meters, will only use the energy generated by the Blantyre Mui wind farm… Continue reading The largest Scottish office center will be powered exclusively by wind power
The California Energy Commission has approved the Energy Code of 2022, which requires all new commercial buildings to be equipped with photovoltaic cells from 2023 to generate electricity from the sun’s rays. It is expected that such an innovation will help to significantly improve the environment in the state by the middle of this century.… Continue reading Rooftop solar panels are a must for California new builds
The charge controller is a key part of the system to ensure that solar panels work highly efficiently. The energy received from the solar panels is distributed using the controller. Also, the regulator helps to maintain the desired output voltage in order to avoid discharging or, on the contrary, overcharging the battery. And this is… Continue reading Solar charge controller – how to choose the right one?
The researchers believe that the installation of large numbers of solar panels and wind turbines in the Sahara Desert will have a significant impact on rainfall, increased vegetation and temperatures in the region. They found that the action of wind turbines would double the amount of rainfall that would fall on the desert. Solar panels… Continue reading Large-scale solar and wind energy projects could green the Sahara.
