Gone are the days when we used to amaze to see the solar panels on rooftops, as solar power has now become the need of the hour and virtually every home or business is looking for clean but at the same time cheap sources of energy. Solar power not just gives us an alternate source of energy but also helps in sustaining the environment. From mobile phones and watches to buildings and transportation means, these days solar power is making inroads in every aspect of human life. While most of the solar projects or products follow the conventional path, there are some innovations in solar energy that will simply sweep […]
Both solar and wind energy are two types of renewable energies which can help in keeping the environment cleaner. Random and incessant uses of non-renewable energies have deteriorated the environment of the earth leading to the collapse of several ecological systems. As a result, problems such as global warming, lack of drinkable water and holes in the ozone layer are now plaguing the human world.
The popularity of artificial intelligence is increasing in the developed nations as it can solve many of the problems encountered by companies. Full or partial automation can reduce wastage of money, time and resources. It is also believed to help in improving the quality of work and boost workplace safety. Scientists are trying to come up with robots and other automated machines that can work on their own with minimum human supervision.
It is hard to believe that there are villages where people still live without electricity and other basic facilities like toilets and water. This is the harsh truth that inhabitants of several third world countries have to grapple with everyday. Technology has helped in turning the world into a village and every individual has the right of ripping the benefits offered by tech.
Almost all of us are familiar with solar power energy generating systems. Springing up all over the place these days, these systems generate electricity from the sun’s rays. They absorb the sunlight and convert it into usable energy, which is then transmitted to millions of households in the nearby regions. Consider this astounding fact. The sun sends over 42 trillion kilocalories of energy to Earth. Converting 100% of this energy into electricity would create enough power for the earth for a whole year. And this can be achieved in just one hour. So imagine the amount of power we would be able to generate from solar power on a daily […]
The solar power industry has witnessed a rapid growth in the recent past. The growth of the industry can be gauged with success of leading players like SunPower and SolarCity that are hitting the headlines with their innovations in home construction.
Imagine a person connected to the Internet via a Smartphone plugged on to a solar tree. This is really happening in Israel where the broad leaves of the tree are actually solar panels that can provide multiple advantages, such as drinking fountain, USB outlets, electric outlets, and Wi-Fi, to the passers-by.
The large population in South Asian countries is putting a lot of pressure on the energy infrastructure in those countries and it is time to think about viability of alternative source of energy such as solar energy. Positive point for many of the countries here such as India is that there is no lack of sunshine throughout the year, and it can be utilized to provide electricity to millions of poor people in these countries.
