Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of American researchers has designed a novel geothermal power plant that would sequester large amounts of carbon dioxide underground as part of its operations. According to a report being presented on Friday at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco, carbon dioxide can be used to boost power generation from geothermal sources by at least 10 times compared to conventional means. “Typical geothermal power...

There has been a gradually growing trend among self storage facilities in Canada to install solar panels at their locations. Secure Self Storage feels that it is important to take a leadership role in going green. Mississauga, ON (PRWEB) December 12, 2013 The government of Ontario has assisted in speeding up this development by presenting a Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) Program where building proprietors can put in solar panels on top of their roofs to produce green energy, and feed in to the...

New Material For Solar Panels Could Make Them Cheaper And More Efficient
2013-12-12 08:01:27

Argonne National Laboratory A unique solar panel design made with a new ceramic material points the way to potentially providing sustainable power cheaper, more efficiently, and requiring less manufacturing time. It also reaches a four-decade-old goal of discovering a bulk photovoltaic material that can harness energy from visible and infrared light, not just ultraviolet light. Scaling up this new design from its tablet-size prototype to a full-size solar panel would be a large step...

Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles
2012-07-23 11:19:47

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles. Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation. EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of...
