Renewable Energy Technology is Old

Technologies of Old Some renewable energy technology and conventional fossil fuel energy sources like coal-powered electricity production are more than a hundred years old. Does that make it old technology? The technologies of coal power continued improving over the century. Today’s electricity production plants are more efficient, safer and more streamlined than the earlier versions. Renewable energy technology options like wind power and hydropower have been around for a long time. They pre-date some of the conventional sources of electrical power

Will Solar Fuel Diminish With Climate?

What is solar fuel? Solar is about the Sun. Solar fuel diminishing can’t be about the sun running out of energy; that is unlikely, and not something we can control. It will be an eternity before the matter needs urgent adaption strategies. Climate change is a more pressing issue. Maybe for climate change, we can focus on renewable energy options and solve the issues with them. The plants and the ground absorb and store the sun’s energy. Plants are biomass as

Solar charge a car battery with solar panels

You need to charge a car battery If your battery is too flat to start your car you can solar charge a car battery. When you charge a car battery with solar panels it’s best to connect the charger directly to the battery. A normal plug-in battery trickle charger does the same thing. It is easy to attach the solar panels and the charger to the battery. The chargers come supplied with alligator clips or attaching clamps. Can you charge with

Hydroelectric storage of renewable energy

Hydroelectric power and no pollution Water is a means for storage of renewable energy Water moving through and rotating a turbine creates hydroelectric power. The amount of power output is dependant on the size of the turbine and its turning speed. The faster the turbine moves the greater the power that will be generated. Also, the longer period over which the turbine operates the greater the electricity produced. The power extracted by the turbine impellers relies on the available kinetic

Is energy complicated?

Is energy complicated if renewable? I am sure energy is essential but is energy complicated, or easy? The first complication of many energy systems, including renewable energy power options, have to do with funding. The upfront capital cost in any generation system is high. There must be an investment in the energy facility before electrical power is available. You’ll either need to invest in increased capacity, reduce energy usage so the existing output remains adequate, or tolerate interruptions. Issues like
