Our solar panel Panasonic HIT® N340 has the highest output of all our products, reaching 340 Watt in just 1.67 m2 of surface. With less than 160cm of length, it has 25% more output power than a standard solar panel of similar size. (265 Watt) In order to continuously increase the quality of its high-performance HIT® modules, Panasonic is focusing on improvements in detail. The frame of the HIT® N340 solar module is now being strengthened from 35 millimeters to 40 millimeters, so that it can withstand wind and snow loads up to 5400 Pa. The frame is anodyzed and black. The HIT® N340 module is also officially released for mounting the mounting brackets on the shorter sides. All HIT® modules still contain Panasonic's water drainage system at the corners of the frame, which ensures reliable water drainage on the module glass. This improves the self-cleaning of the modules. Furthermore, the long-term performance increases due to the reduced pollution and accumulation of dust.

Heat is stored by the thermal mass of the ground of water thermal. There are two types of heat sources: In the UK just a few metres below our feet the ground keeps a constant temperature of about 11-12°C throughout the year. The Earth’s internal heat was originally produced during accretion. Since then heat has been produced by the radioactive decay of elements such as uranium, thorium and potassium. Due to its high enthalpy, this type of heat is often harvested in volcanic areas for electricity production and large district heating. The majority of heat stored right in the Earth’s surface comes from the sun. This heat is widely available, and because of its low enthalpy, it is often harvested for local heat pump applications.

Whether you are a leisure or a professional sailor, you know how important it is to have a reliable power supply so that your electronics continue to function properly - especially far out at sea. Victron Energy offers a broad range of equipment designed specifically with you and your on board power system in mind. We proudly present to you a new era in freedom and independence. 'Service' batteries provide power for everything except for 'engine-starting'. Demand for on-board electricity has to be matched with an adequate battery bank. Lithium Batteries provide the best solution for high power demand. Compared to lead/acid technology they are smaller and about 70% lighter for their capacity. They can be deeply discharged, without harm. More current is available throughout the discharge cycle …and they can be cycled thousands of times - resulting in a much longer service life. It is also 'easier' to drive power back into Lithium batteries - so charging-time is reduced.

Many people have written in and commented that an electric motor is only good for day sailors who weren’t going very far each day, and that you need a reliable diesel engine for long distance cruising. But we feel like the opposite is true. Since we don’t have a dock to tie up to and charge our batteries each night, we rely on sailing to recharge our system. The longer we sail and the more sun we get, the more power we make. Because we don’t have a 9-5 to return to at the end of a fun weekend out on the boat, we have no schedules requiring that we make it back to the dock on time, no matter what the wind is doing. So, we feel that an electric motor, depending on your sailing style, can be adapted to any boat. But, you have to be willing to work around the one major draw back, range.

Battle Born Batteries are made in Reno, Nevada – the Battle Born State. Our batteries are the height of lithium ion technology. We only use LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) in our packs, this is the safest and most reliable chemistry of lithium ion available. They outperform and outlast all other batteries in their class and below their class (lookin’ at you, lead acid batteries). The best part? They’re easy on the planet and your wallet. Green energy is not a trend to us. It’s not a marketing ploy to exploit for sales. We make our renewable, sustainable green energy batteries because they’re simply better than anything else out there, including other green batteries. Compare the specs on our batteries to that grungy, lead acid one in your vehicle and it’s easy to see. Our batteries weigh less, last for more cycles, and they’re made from 100% safe, non toxic, renewable energy that can be charged and discharged over and over again (at a faster rate than any other battery). Not to mention the unbeatable price.

Primary objective in wind turbine design is to maximize the aerodynamic efficiency, or power extracted from the wind. But this objective should be met by well satisfying mechanical strength criteria and economical aspects. In this video we will see impact of number of blades, blade shape, blade length and tower height on wind turbine design. The next big factor which is affecting performance of wind turbine is shape and orientation of blade cross section. A moving machine experiences fluid flow at a different velocity than the actual velocity. It is called as relative or apparent velocity. Apparent velocity of flow is difference between actual flow and blade velocity. Absolute velocity of the flow is shown in first figure, while apparent velocity in the second figure. It is clear that apparent velocity of flow is vectorial difference between actual and blade velocity. The vector difference is shown in the first figure at a particular cross section. A rotating blade will experience an apparent velocity of flow.

The world’s first watch equipped with a mechanism for thermal power generation. The thermal power elements generate electricity from the temperature difference between the body and atmosphere and store it as energy in a secondary battery. A full charge keeps the watch running for about 10 months. The Thermic generates electric power via the Seebeck effect, a phenomenon produced when heat transfers from the back of the case to the case surface. To improve energy efficiency further, a power-saving mechanism stops the second hand whenever the watch is removed from the wrist.

The dos and don'ts of fuelling your petrol-saving vehicle. A few years ago, you could venture into some beneficent municipality and find — in the public garage, or the library car lot, or right in the middle of Main Street — a couple of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging stations. These cities, along with college and corporate campuses, were demonstrating their commitment to preserving the environment, offering free power and prime parking to those citizens who were willing to spend a lot of extra money for a low-range, underpowered, unsexy vehicle. Those charger-augmented spots were often empty, simply because there weren’t enough PEVs on the road to fill them.

Are you looking to build a wind turbine, or to buy a windmill, and you want to know whether it is better to get yourself a vertical axis wind turbine or a conventional horizontal windmill? It is a good idea to educate yourself on the differences between vertical and horizontal axis wind turbines. Obviously, you want to get the one that has the best return on investment, whether you will buy a wind turbine or build it yourself.

The nuclear industry of the 1950s was defined by an inexhaustible optimism and rigorous scientific thinking. Anything was possible, and nuclear energy promised to power the world. Revolutionary designs were prolific. Today, however, this technological diversity has been narrowed, and the industry has become locked into one design: the light water reactor. We’re challenging this strategy and have returned to the beginning to explore another path, and another design – the molten salt reactor. This simple reactor design, updated with modern technology and materials, has the potential to revolutionize the nuclear industry.

This is a portable system that generates electrical power via an accumulator that provides the initial motion for the system. Two batteries are used in this system and the system is kept working via the initial motion provided by these batteries. There is no need for another transformer. This device works using its own mechanism and there is no need for additional devices. In this way, a continuous electrical power generation is possible. This device can work without connecting it to a network so it is possible to use it at places where electricity does not exist. Moreover, when connected to the entry of a building, the need for a network is avoided. This system generates electrical power independent of a network.

Peru last week initiated a new program that will provide electricity to more than two million of its poorest residents using solar panels. Energy and Mining Minister Jorge Merino said that the program will allow 95% of Peru to have access to electricity by the end of 2016. Currently, approximately 66% of the population has access to electricity.

Solar cells convert the sun's energy into electricity, similar to the way plants convert the sun's energy into food through photosynthesis. Solar cells work by using the sun's energy to enable electrons in semiconducting materials to move from orbits close to the nuclei of their atoms to higher orbits where they can conduct electricity. Commercial solar cells use silicon as the semiconductor, but here is a way to make a solar cell with more accessible materials to see for yourself how it works.

We know that reactive loads such as inductors and capacitors dissipate zero power, yet the fact that they drop voltage and draw current gives the deceptive impression that they actually do dissipate power. This “phantom power” is called reactive power, and it is measured in a unit called Volt-Amps-Reactive (VAR), rather than watts. The mathematical symbol for reactive power is (unfortunately) the capital letter Q. The actual amount of power being used, or dissipated, in a circuit is called true power, and it is measured in watts (symbolized by the capital letter P, as always). The combination of reactive power and true power is called apparent power, and it is the product of a circuit's voltage and current, without reference to phase angle. Apparent power is measured in the unit of Volt-Amps (VA) and is symbolized by the capital letter S.
