SOLAR
ENERGY




Solar energy is the radiant light and heat from the Sun that
has been harnessed by humans since ancient times using a range
of ever-evolving technologies. Solar radiation along with
secondary solar resources such as wind and wave power,
hydroelectricity and biomass account for most of the available
renewable energy on Earth. Only a minuscule fraction of the
available solar energy is used.

Solar power provides electrical generation by means of heat
engines or photovoltaics. Once converted, its uses are limited
only by human ingenuity.

A partial list of solar applications includes space heating and
cooling through solar architecture, potable water via distillation
and disinfection, daylighting, hot water, thermal energy for cooking,
and high temperature process heat for industrial purposes.

SOLAR CELL
PHOTOVOLTAIC
CELL




A solar cell or photovoltaic cell is a device that converts
light directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect.

Sometimes the term solar cell is reserved for devices intended
specifically to capture energy from sunlight, while the term
photovoltaic cell is used when the light source is unspecified.
Assemblies of cells are used to make solar panels, solar modules,
or photovoltaic arrays. Photovoltaics is the field of technology
and research related to the application of solar cells in producing
electricity for practical use. The energy generated this way is an
example of solar energy.

SOLAR
ROOF
COLLECTOR




A solar roof collector comprising a plate collector with a plurality
of transparent conduits to channel a thin film of water from an
insulated reservoir in order to increase the temperature of wate.


Heating and air conditioning
solar heat accumulator


The invention relates to a solar accumulator, which is used to collect
the sun rays to heat a heat conductive fluid medium contained within a
piping system and an arrangement of plates--file bricks.



Thermal storage furnace system

A thermal storage furnace system having a mixing means in fluid communication
with both a thermal storage means and a thermal storage means bypass conduit
for mixing both heated fluid from the thermal unit.

SECTION 4



SOLAR
ACCUMULATOR




A solar accumulator, which is used to collect the sun rays to heat
a heat conductive fluid medium contained within a piping system and
an arrangement of plates--file bricks of high heat capacity.

The heat produced is subsequently used to heat the air which is conveyed
to the space to be heated. The air duct system employed making use of
electrical relay controlled gates can alternatively be used for heating
or air-conditioning/ventilating. Operation of the solar accumulator
requires usage of an auxiliary or reserve energy source, e.g. electricity.

TOTAL
SPECTRUM
SOLAR
CONCENTRATOR




A Total Spectrum Solar Concentrator is a device used to optimise the
efficiency of solar power. The suns rays are first concentrated using
parabolic mirrors or a fresnel lens, and then spread out into a light
spectrum via a prism.

Each different part of the spectrum is aimed at a solar cell manufactured
to operate most efficiently in that frequency range.

PHOTOVOLTAICS
(PV)




Photovoltaics (PV) is the field of technology and research
related to the application of solar cells for energy by
converting sun energy (sunlight, including sun ultra violet
radiation) directly into electricity. Due to the growing
demand for clean sources of energy, the manufacture of solar
cells and photovoltaic arrays has expanded dramatically in
recent years.

SOLAR
CONCENTRATORS




Well the “new” news in energy tech venture investing seems to be
solar concentrators.

Solar concentrators basically put a lens (called a Fresnel lens)
on top the solar cells, focusing sunlight onto a standard
photovoltaic cell and making it tremendously more efficient. Not
too different from using a magnifying glass and the sun to start
a fire. However, concentrators tend to do better when the light
source is a single point, and pointed straight at the cell.




How do solar concentrators work?

A solar concentrator uses lenses, called Fresnel lenses, which take
a large area of sunlight and direct it towards a specific spot by
bending the rays of light and focusing them. Some people use the
same principle when they use a magnifying lens to focus the Sun's
rays on a pile of kindling or paper to start fires.
