Solar Concentrator Solar Energy & Land Management

Power production requires resources. Among these resources includes space and land. In this short article, we will discuss various technologies ranging from Solar Concentrator technology to standard plat panel technology and how land management is important when planning to install these systems.   Since the sun beams down energy across the earth each and every day, basically anywhere in the world can become a power plant. The problem is that …Read More

How to Save Money with Solar Hot Water

The SolarBeam Parabolic Concentrator is a solar hot water system that provides up to 12kWh of solar hot water. Since the system tracks the sun, it is more efficient than flat panels. The SolarBeam can be used in any application that requires solar hot water or solar heat. Solar Hot Water in Vancouver? There are two primary ways to use the sun’s rays to create energy: solar photovoltaic systems create electricity; …Read More

Solar Heat for Wineries and Breweries

Wineries and breweries can reduce operating costs by using solar heat for heating water up to 250 C. There are many uses for solar heat and it is cheaper than installing PV panels to provide the electricity for heating water. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot provide steam like the SolarBeam. The SolarBeam is a parabolic dish that tracks the sun and …Read More

Solar Water Applications in Spain

The amount of solar energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in one year it is about twice as much as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth’s non-renewable resources of coal, oil, natural gas, and mined uranium combined. Solar energy can be harnessed to provide solar water and solar heat. Depending on a geographical location the closer to the equator the more “potential” solar …Read More

Solar Hot Water Use in Prison Applications

Solar hot water is an important step to reduce energy usage for companies. There are many uses for solar hot water and it is cheaper than installing PV panels. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot heat a large home or company. Finally there is a solar hot water system that can provide: space heating, solar water and space cooling. The SolarBeam can …Read More

Solar Hot Water for Commercial Buildings

Solar hot water is an important step to reduce energy usage for homes and companies. Imagine not having to pay your oil or power bill because you can get free heat from the sun. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot heat a large home or company. The SolarBeam can replace 10-15 large flat panels because it tracks the sun and can create …Read More

Solar Thermal vs. Photovoltaic

It is important to understand that solar thermal technology can be used to create electricity by means of a stirling engine. This technology is not the same as solar panel, or photovoltaic technology. Solar thermal electric energy generation concentrates the light from the sun to create heat, and that heat is used to run a sterling engine, which turns a generator to make electricity. The working fluid that is heated …Read More

Solar Heat and Water for Desalination

Conditions of global water sources lead towards innovation in alternative technologies to increase the amount of potable water available on earth. For certain water poor places on earth, desalination can be an effective technique to provide drinkable clean water. The process for desalination can be achieved through a variety of means, though they are generally energy intensive. Solar heat for desalination can provide some of the energy required in these …Read More

Solar Heating for Home Use

  Homes and housing have changed throughout the ages. As time and technology develops, there are new paradigms for how houses are designed, built and lived in. There are some constants however. Homes have been designed to shelter the residents from the elements. In cold climates, they generally have some technology to provide heat for comfort, in addition to heat used for cooking. In overly hot climates, some element of …Read More
