Harvesting drinking water from the air with the power of space

Obtaining fresh drinking water from the air has been very energy intensive for a long time. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now invented a current less technology that uses the cooling of space for this. The new device essentially consists of a specially coated pane of glass that both reflects solar radiation and radiates its own heat into space via the atmosphere. As a result, it cools down to 15 degrees

Create your Green Bond or Crowdfunding for free

For me social Photovoltaics is very exciting. Imagine you are struggling to afford electricity bills and the power of sun helps you, so the grid provider can hardly cut you off. So in the current situation everybody wants to save money.  Most people will rush to switch to the cheapest Electricity Provider and the cheapest Option these Days is the Sun. Even the International Energy Agency tells us these days that photovoltaics

TOP 5 Most Efficient Commercial Available Solar Panels March of 2020

he photovoltaic industry has made tremendous progress and is the cheapest way to build new electricity production capacity worldwide. Another positive feature is that photovoltaics produce no emissions. Finally, the danger of fine dust as a possible intensifier of the course of a coronavirus disease has also caught the attention of the media. ? We should focus much more on resilient and decentralized solar energy, also to improve the health, living conditions and financial

Calculate Corona doubling by yourself

"The greatest weakness of humanity is its inability to understand the exponential function," said physicist Al Bartlett in his book "The Essential Exponential!" written. For Example there are 112 (known) corona cases in Austria today and the rate of duplication (outside of China) is 4 days. So could there be 1 million cases in Austria in just over a month? Do the calculations yourself with this doubling calculator: But you can use

Ski Lift can run on photovoltaic electricity of the summer

“In summer, weights are transported up the mountain and left in the valley in winter, and the photovoltaic energy of summer is available in dark winter.” Bill Gates explained his investment in lift or gravitational energy storage technology in a similar way. Batteries are getting cheaper and cheaper and will soon offer a cheap, short-term solution for storing energy for daily energy needs. However, the long-term storage capacity of batteries, for example

Are rare earths used in Solar Panels and Batteries

According to a report by ADEME , the earths are not so rare. Especially in photovoltaic or solar energy and battery technologies are not widely used. Despite their name, they are not that rare. The rare earth consumption in the area of ​​the generation of renewable energies is mainly due to the use of permanent magnets for offshore wind energy, which are only used by a small part of the wind

How many Exponential Steps to Mars

When we want to understand the exponential impact to the biosphere Johan Rockström can help, speaking from the World Economic Forum in Zurich: If I take 35 linear steps, I’ll barely reach the coffee stand outside of this room. What happens if I take 35 exponential steps(Steps doubles up)? I’d reach Copenhagen after 21 steps. Three more steps, I’m in New York. Another two steps and I encircle the entire

Solar-power replacement as a solution for hydropower foregone in US dam removals

A new US Study concludes that when all the hydro-dams in the United States were removed and only 50% of the emergent land was used for PVs, 945,062 GWh yr power could be generated, which is 3.44 times the current hydropower generation. Details of this remarkable Study, which estimates only a ‘fixed tilt PVs with a capacity of carefully 2.4 ha per MWp’. Theroretical when we have 20% efficiency so only 0.5

Panel-Level Battery Integration Holds Out Promise of 40 Percent Reductions in So …

New lithium-ion battery energy storage modules integrated with individual solar racking systems and PV panels can reduce the costs of commercial, rooftop solar-plus-storage energy installations (100 kW-500 kW) an average of 40 percent, according to Yotta Solar, developer of the SolarLEAF. Yotta Solar and PanelClaw, a leader manufacturer and vendor of flat-roof solar energy racking systems, recently announced that the latter would integrate SolarLEAF as an attachment to its rooftop racking

Calculate how many Photovoltaic Modules do you need to fill a hydrogen car

A lot is written about automobiles and the electrification of the same, because cars cause a lot of emotions. Most car buying decisions are made today by women. Currently, women like masculine, safe and big cars, which presumably mediate lack of emotional warmth? Cold technology like solar energy makes it difficult for women to score. Technology is often communicated to women unemotional and cold? Cars, on the other hand, may

New Floating Photovoltaic Trampoline compare online other floating Technologies

Statkraft Albania received a preliminary authorization from the Government of Albania for the implementation of a floating solar plant at Banja with a feed-in-tariff in December 2018. The design of the Ocean Sun array includes dual-glass, silicon crystalline modules with customized junction box, cables and attachment features. The modules are attached to the membrane using a unique fixation mechanism, the company explains. This enables good thermal contact with the water

Understanding the bifacial boost with the online Balcony Photovoltaic Calculator …

The technical basis of bifacial (two-sided) photovoltaic modules has been around since the 1960s. But it was only with the falling module glass prices that it became economically interesting. This technology will achieve a market share of 35% in the next few years. The rear side of the PV modules can now also convert reflected beams (albedo) into electricity. This results in completely new applications. Using the example of a balcony

Repowering does it pay off these online Tools can help

The repowering of photovoltaic systems business has therefore grown steadily in recent years. Not only small PV systems were exchanged on private and commercial roofs to make room and also whole solar parks. In the past thin film modules, which were exchanged for crystalline modules and thus free space for more power, were used after the fall of the Minimum import price for Chinese solar modules completely new possibilities for operators and administrators

Global Photovoltaic installations reached 109 GWp in 2018

The news agency Bloomberg New Energy Finance reports In 2018, more than 109 GWp of photovoltaics were installed globally. Reasons for the enormous increase include a 12% reduction in installation costs. Likewise, easier financing through banks. Solar energy has now surpassed wind at Bankability, partly because sun is easier to forecast and maintenance costs are much lower. Also, the quality and efficiency of the modules has increased enormously, as well as

Off-Grid Solar Car needs only a quarter of gas (eq) per 100 km

Everywhere more and more cars are coming onto the market. The fronts of some pickups are even as tall as an adult. If we also remember that every 2nd advertising EURO comes from the auto industry, it is not surprising that we also buy what the auto industry serves us. If engineers do not have to pay attention to sales, only 1/4 liter of diesel equivalent per 100 km is

Wiring solar panels: Calculate in series and parallel wired PV solar panels

Simple online Calculation of Modules connected in series: Interconnection of any number of Modules is usually done as a series connection. In this case, the negative terminal of one Module is connected to the positive terminal of the other Module, so that all Modules are supplied with the same current. The resulting total stress is then the sum of the partial stresses. The series connection of Modules is often referred
