Alternate Energy Aficionados Dream Come True : Solar Cars: Is It Really a Possibility?

After vigorous calculations, researchers have concluded that to drive 50 miles per day, a car needs 3.44 kW, and most of the current solar panels can produce 345 W/ft² under full sun, and that will need approximately 250 ft² of solar panels in a car.

Using Carbon Additives to Improve Performance of AGM Batteries

Batteries that operate in partial state of charge (PSOC) environments can suffer from reduced charge acceptance that can lead to progressive capacity loss.

Advances in Solar Panel Technology in Recent Years and Its Use in Solar Car Development

Currently, a high-efficiency car company, Aperta Motors, is conducting test drives and safety tests on a new design of cars. These Aperta are three-wheelers, covered by 34 square feet of solar panels, which provide enough energy to drive up to 40 miles on a sunny day.

Best Practices for Installing a Solar-Ready Low Slope Roof

When installing a solar array, having a coverboard as part of the roofing assembly is a best practice. As such, most manufacturers of solar mounts test and evaluate their mechanical attachment products with a coverboard over polyisocyanurate (polyiso) insulation.

Using Wind Energy for Hydrogen Production : An Innovative Concept

As a way to resolve wind curtailment, the integration of hydrogen fuel at a wind farm allows flexibility to shift production to best match the resource availability with its particular operational needs and market factors.

Evaluating the Efficiency of Hydropower as an Alternative Energy Source and its Effects on the Ecosystem

Generation of hydropower, a renewable source of energy, is not a difficult feat, however, making the generation process efficient and cost effective is the real challenge.

COVID-19 & looking ahead to 2021 and beyond, Insights from Baja Carports

The biggest challenge to the solar industry is the cost of land and cost of transmission to the end user. This combined with the spike in additional demand due to the rapid increase in electrical vehicles will put a tremendous burden on solar solutions.

Artificial Photosynthesis as a Renewable Energy Source

There is a growing effort toward establishing a high-tech energy-generating system that is fundamentally inspired by nature itself: artificial photosynthesis.
