A new eco-friendly £5 million private care home in Sussex has elected to use solar energy as the primary source for both its heating and lighting. Eric Hawkins, MD and founder of Powertech Solar, describes how the project has provided an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the energy saving potential of the company's Suntech Solar Commercial range.
I think it's feasible to be off the grid anywhere you have access to sun, wind, or water for power. However, the city planning department may have other ideas. I know a couple in southwest Oregon whose urban homestead was off-grid on a city lot for many years, but they had a community that was supportive of renewables.
Homeowners get a solar system that looks great and performs well—and one that installs quicker and easier than anything else on the market. Since the installation crew spends less time up on the roof and makes about 25 percent less rooftop penetrations, there is less wear and tear on a roof.
How far the current PV cost is still separated from grid parity depends largely on the geographical situation, on the price of grid electricity, and on whether it concerns a cheaper or a more expensive PV system.
There are fuel cells installed in stationary applications all over the world, in a wide variety of locations, including hotels, hospitals, schools, telecommunications towers, breweries and in some parts of the world, notably Japan, in houses and apartment complexes.
From start to finish, every single point of contact within the organization must deliver on its brand promise. Internal communications make up every communication touchpoint or contact with a company's people. This includes messages from leadership (or lack of) - whether delivered in person or in writing.
"FloDesign Wind Turbine Corporation is going to revolutionize the way we capture energy from the wind," says CEO, Stanley Kowalski III. "Our wind turbine will produce more wind energy with less impact on the environment. Our turbines are smaller, can function in a variety of climates, and can work closer to the ground."
Peak Oil is the maximum rate at which we can pump oil out of rocks. World Peak Discovery was 1964. Peak in US production was 1970, North Sea 1999, Mexico 2004, Saudi Arabia 2005.
The main challenge for manufacturers of diesel engines and generator sets is thus to reduce the level of harmful substances, while maintaining similar or better performance levels.
Reducing the carbon footprint of an office building can take many forms, from simple awareness initiatives urging employees to turn off lights to more comprehensive plans that rely on technology for systematic control over energy consumption.
Another aspect of this unique documentary which set it apart from the plethora of recent films covering the subject of global warming is that it did not just deal with global warming alone, but other abuses of the environment as well.
The environmental cost of raising cattle through conventional farming, slaughtering the animal and distributing the meat. Producing a kilo of beef causes the equivalent of 36.4 kilos of CO2.
The document is intended to provide you with some basic information about wind energy systems from approximately 500 W up to 50 kW.
Geothermal energy is viable and reliable right now, and the promise of the industry is unparalleled given the positive characteristics of the resource.
Without a doubt, the highpoint of this film is its examination and dissemination of the myths and truths involved with nuclear power.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
