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

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 Water for Large Applications is Cheaper with SolarBeam Concentrator

The SolarBeam Concentrator is a solar hot water system that provides up to 12kWh of solar 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. The SolarBeam is a powerful solar water system that can produce more heat per m2 than flat panels or evacuated tubes. For example, if you had to …Read More

Solar Hot Water and Sustainability

A sustainable future in society takes both planning and ingenuity to execute appropriately. To cite an old adage: don’t put all your eggs in one basket. There are many forms of sustainable energy, and for a safe future, all should be included. This article, however, will focus on the benefits of solar hot water within a sustainable energy infrastructure. A large portion of energy loads within society, whether residential, industrial …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

Solar Heating with a Parabolic Concentrator

  The sun beams down an enormous amount of radiation to the earth every day, all across the globe. This energy can be harvested and used by society in the two major forms, heat and electricity. Considering heat, the sun can provide power, through solar heating, for many major areas of human’s energy consumption. Solar heating can be used for domestic hot water purposes (i.e. Cooking, cleaning, laundering), as well …Read More

Solar Hot Water and the New Energy Paradigm

  Technology and society today are advancing in such a way that the methods of energy production, transportation and consumption that have been in use for the last 100 years are reaching the end of their shelf life. Expanded population growth and development are placing new demand on our energy resources as a planet. Infrastructure and progression must be planned in such a way that there is fair development for …Read More
