Shutterstock Image In the midst of the almost daily barrage of information generated by Tesla, the firm led by Elon Musk has made, without advertising in between, a donation of solar panels for a total of 569 kW of energy. With it, the non-governmental organization GRID Alternatives will bring solar energy to 150 families without
Shutterstock Image Experts say that, at any given moment, the earth receives up to 10,000 times more solar energy than is needed for human consumption. This, in addition to showing the potential of this resource, responds to how much solar energy can be used. The what is generally known for: to generate electricity or for
In many cases, a shirt can be more than just a shirt and when we no longer wear it we can give it a second life. For example, you can use an old daddy shirt to make a beautiful dress for your little girl in a few minutes. This is a very simple project and
Black solar cells. Image: ESB Basic Shutterstock Can the colors of the panels make solar energy cheaper? A recent discovery indicated that changing the color of silicon in solar cells can reduce production costs in solar cells by more than 10%, thanks to the work of engineers at Michigan Technological University and Aalto University. Silicon
Silicon solar cells placed in spheres take advantage of scattered light to make the collection of solar energy flexible even in small devices. Flat solar panels still face major limitations when it comes to making the most of the available sunlight each day. A new spherical solar cell design aims to increase solar energy harvesting
Rayfrigeration, the first zero-emission refrigeration unit thanks to solar energy, is ready for use in freight trucks dedicated to deliveries in urban areas. This has been verified after five months of tests in real working conditions, in which this system has achieved a reduction in emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and carbon dioxide (CO2) of
Project update: Ocean Cleanup has announced a major breakthrough on the project, at a conference its CEO gave in Werkspoorkathedraal. There he revealed interesting changes to the design, which will allow the system to be more durable and pick up more plastic. In the old design it was estimated that it could clean 42% of
Today we are going to learn how to make a solar heater for our pool ourselves, for those who have it and those who do not have it here have ideas to make a home pool. With this home solar heater we can heat the water in a small pool easily and cheaply. Necessary materials.
Shutterstock Image The University of the Basque Country (UPV / EHU) has made public the result of the research in which Itxaso Parola Domingo, a telecommunications engineer, achieves a high-performance plastic optical fiber by capturing solar energy, this creation is given as a result to use hybrid dopants that act as a luminescent solar concentrator.
Image: jaroslava V – Shutterstock. The solar panels are an incredibly important tool to generate clean and sustainable energy. Its popularity and efficiency are increasing day by day, but there is a problem. They only work half the day. And in some parts of the world with drastic fluctuations in their availability of daylight, such
