The largest solar plant in the world has been operating since yesterday in the Mojave Desert, on the border between Nevada and California, and one of the three owners (in addition to NRG Energy and BrightSource Energy) is Google! The new plant, called “Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System ”took years to design, build and test but will now be able to generate 30 of all solar energy produced in the United States!
The solar garden shower is a very convenient accessory that is particularly useful in the summer, both for those who own a swimming pool and for those who, returned from the sea, do not want to dirty their bathroom with sand and still wet costumes! from the garden is completely ecological and ready to use: no electric cable is required for installation, the water is heated directly by the panels that capture the sun's rays.
Photovoltaic panels are among the cheapest renewable resources; those who want to install a solar system can count on deductions and the possibility of carrying out the exchange on site. In the design of a solar system it is crucial to choose the right location for greater irradiation.
That of assoRinnovabili on the incentive spreading decree could seem a threat of retaliation, were it not for the fact that the new rule pending conversion into law could really eliminate the payment of rent in favor of the subjects who have transferred the surface right to photovoltaic systems .
There are alternatives to the incentive spread decree according to aceRinnovabili The opinion of the association of producers, industry and services for renewable energy is that the incentive spreaders will only serve to cut the resources allocated to solar plants that are already in operation, putting some 10,000 jobs in the renewable energy sector at risk.
Photovoltaic coatings represent a turning point in the role of solar energy in architecture and could be the flagship of an ecological home. Buildings, even newly constructed ones, are very far from being energy efficient. Photovoltaic coatings, also called photovoltaic tapes or photovoltaic roofing, can be applied anywhere and do not have the landscape limits laid out for solar roofs.
Photovoltaic coatings offer maximum architectural integration and could be the flagship of an ecological home. The photovoltaic covering designed by the Italian startup SBskin aims to combine the transparency of glass with the ability to produce electricity typical of photovoltaic panels.
Is the green economy still an essential tool to restart the country? The producers associations aceRinnovabili and ANIE Rinnovabili ask for it 'with energy', the latter part of ANIE Confindustria.The subject of the question is the notorious incentive spreading decree passed by the Government to the examination of the Industry and Environment commissions of the Senate, from where they are 'emerging' the first texts accompanied, however, by increasingly fierce criticism.
The butterfly roof, also called inverted roof, has the classic V shape and in the context of bioclimatic architecture and home automation, it is proposed as an innovative roof capable of integrating different systems designed to maximize the efficiency of the building until reaching of the performance of the passive house.
Quantum Photovoltaics: Quantum dot solar cells represent an emerging research field in the field of photovoltaics. This technology aims to use quantum dots as photovoltaic material to replace the raw materials currently used such as silicon and CIGS (characteristic of thin-film photovoltaics) or cadmium telluride.
The assembly of solar panels is not a very complex procedure, however, both for the position (often the domestic systems are made on the roof!) And for the installation itself (a certain inclination must be respected), we recommend the intervention of a team expert in installing solar systems.
Installing a solar panel for hot water production is a simple task. We have already talked about the assembly of solar panels focusing on the commissioning of a photovoltaic system on a pitched roof, in this article we will see how to mount the solar concentration panels on a flat roof, pitched or in the attic, so as to produce hot water thanks to the 'solar power.
Domestic photovoltaic systems help to increase the autonomous energy production capacity of our country and limit greenhouse gas emissions. They do both by exploiting a resource of all and naturally available, the Sun. That said, taxing photovoltaic systems would be equivalent to inserting a unique tax on the Sun.
The acronym O&M stands for Operation & Maintenance and in the field of photovoltaics it identifies the operations of management and maintenance of the plants. It is a market, the O&M one, which is worth 350 million euros a year and acquires importance in the light of the installation. The purpose of O&M is to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic systems by slowing down their obsolescence and maximizing their yield.
In Italy there are many so-called restricted areas where strict rules must be followed for any building intervention, even if it involves transformations such as the installation of a photovoltaic system. In this context, we often talk about architectural integration of photovoltaics (photovoltaic tiles and tiles, photovoltaic adhesive, photovoltaic coatings…) with specific technologies capable of not “upsetting” the landscape.
The domestic photovoltaic system can be very convenient for individuals who intend to free themselves, at least in part, from the electricity grid.It is well known that the main advantage of a domestic photovoltaic system is the possibility of self-consumption of energy and to understand in how many years the purchase and installation costs are amortized. An estimated calculation of one's consumption and the amount of energy that will be produced with the domestic photovoltaic system must be made.
