Tap the Power of Sun and Lose Dependency on Solar Lanterns

It’s a great relief that recently the price of photovoltaic modules have reportedly dropped. In just 18 months the price of the total cost of solar energy conservation has been dropped to around 40%. Surely it’s the most promising development in the energy conservation process. With current economic situation it has been so easy to have one photovoltaic module in most economy.

If the right policy is taken it’ll be very helpful development to capture the power of sun and greatly boost mobility across board. Also it’ll reduce the amount of smoke and indoor pollution. In experts view, the cost has already dropped and now it’s easy affordable. They also mentioned the cost is now comparable to that produced from conventional fossil fuels, which, in any case, is loaded with externalities like pollution.

In recent years solar energy has only been used in regular electricity grid. But with this new policy and process this course will brake soon. The vast power of sun now can be used in production. This record breaking policy will definitely give a new dimension in energy production and change the path.

Now it’s time to make a workable plan to diffuse solar lanterns and subsidized kerosene. If we can replace the use of these lanterns and solar pumps by using sun’s energy it’ll lead to massive saving in budgetary around 1% of gross economic output and around 10% of Centre’s total budget outlays.

Nationwide a focused program must be initiated to diffuse solar powered pump sets. Farm owners must lose the reliance on diesel. Factories and manufacturing companies also must come under this program and as soon as possible diffuse solar powered pump sets. Initially it’ll cost to set up the photovoltaic modules but once set up they’ll do great not only in the economy but also to our environment and beloved earth.

Metal particle generates new hope for hydrogen energy

Led by Associate Professor Greg Metha, Head of Chemistry, the researchers are exploring how the metal nanoparticles act as highly efficient catalysts in using solar radiation to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. “Efficient and direct production of hydrogen from solar radiation provides a renewable energy source that is the pinnacle of clean energy,” said Associate Professor Greg Metha. “We believe this work will contribute significantly to the global effort to convert solar energy into portable chemical energy.”

Inkjet printing could change the face of solar energy industry

Inkjet printers, a low-cost technology that in recent decades has revolutionized home and small office printing, may soon offer similar benefits for the future of solar energy. Engineers at Oregon State University have discovered a way for the first time to create successful “CIGS” solar devices with inkjet printing, in work that reduces raw material waste by 90 percent and will significantly lower the cost of producing solar energy cells with some very promising compounds.
