Switching to a Solar Lighter
More than being a fad, a need for reducing people’s carbon footprint has risen with the slew of natural disasters, extinction of animals, and depletion of natural resources experienced in different parts of the globe. Nowadays, being environmentally conscious doesn’t have to mean wearing tie-dye shirts and living in a commune. Though the development of today’s technology has contributed to the current state of the environment, it can also be used to save it.Could the German Dream Be Over?
Anyone watching the unfolding Eurozone crisis would probably think that it was bound to happen sooner or later – Germany is finally starting to feel the effects of having to support some of the more economically unsound European economies, and that’s having a knock-on effect on energy prices in the Rhineland. German electricity prices have undergone a steep decline, suggesting that firms are tightening their collective belts in anticipation of harder economic times ahead. Since April 2012, there has been a 20% drop in wholesale electricity prices and predictions for next year are back at the same levels as 2009.Transparent Solar Cells – Now You See Them, Soon You Won’t
Soon your windows will produce clean, green electricity! Transparent solar research has made important breakthroughs in the past few years, bringing this much anticipated technology closer to commercialization. Perfect for skyscrapers, greenhouses and smart phones, transparent solar cells may change the way we think about solar energy. This article covers the technology, applications and brief history of solar glass.Thin Film or Crystalline Solar Panels?
Thin film and crystalline cells are competing solar technologies with very different properties. While crystalline panels are more efficient and less costly than thin film panels, they are more sensitive to cloud cover, temperature and other environmental factors. Despite thin film’s more reliable and robust design, it is unclear whether they are better suited for solar installations. In the end, it all depends on where the panels are going to be installed.A Summer of Fluctuating Fortunes From Energy Suppliers
Tough economic forces and lousy summer weather seem to be determined to try and take charge of the wholesale energy supply market. Prices tumbled throughout the middle of June to new lows. Annual gas prices are now 15% lower than the same time last year, while annual power prices fell to a two-year low and are 22% down year-on-year.Dyes May Be The Future of Solar Power
Dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs) are a novel solar technology that has many promising characteristics. The most striking feature of DSC is their ability to be sprayed or painted onto any surface. Recently, researcher have found ingenious ways to increase the efficiency of these cells, thus bringing them closer to the market.Escaping the Planetary Boundary – An Introduction to High Altitude Wind Generators
High altitude wind turbines are a creative wind power concept that provides solutions to many problems facing conventional wind turbines. These machines can produce clean electricity at low cost because of their ability to reach astonishing elevations. Theoretically we could use this idea to tap into the jet stream and other large wind currents. The concept may seem a bit extreme, but it successfully illustrates weaknesses in wind turbine design and proposes simple ways to overcome them.Voltis Helps Your Meet Your Carbon Reduction Commitment
Under the Carbon Reduction Commitment, all large organisations in the UK are obliged to reduce their carbon emissions. The Voltis voltage optimisation unit can help you save up to 20% on your electricity bills, as well as cutting down your carbon emissions and maintenance costs.Why Utilize Wind Turbines As a Renewable Free Energy Source?
Wind turbines can use the power of wind to supply power to our homes saving us hundreds of dollars a month. Because wind is a renewable power source, electric companies can pay you for doing so.The Higgs Field, Higgs Boson Particle, and GOD: Are They One and the Same?
This article blending science with spirituality is co-authored by Jerry Pollock, Marcia Pollock and Thomas Spradley A momentous event was announced on July 4, 2012 with the discovery of the Higgs field and a particle predicted to be the Higgs boson particle originally proposed by Peter Higgs and five other scientists in 1964. Leon Lederman in his 1993 book, The God Particle, deemed the Higgs particle with its Supreme Being name because its elusive particle field is unseen permeating all of space. Furthermore it is central to our understanding of the structure of matter, specifically how elementary particles are given mass. The term “God particle” was considered an exaggeration or hyperbole by scientists, but is it? In 2003 in his book, Divinely Inspired: Spiritual Awakening of a Soul, Jerry Pollock proposed that God was the master scientist responsible for both Creation and Evolution. With the publication of Putting God Into Einstein’s Equations: Energy of the Soul in April of 2012, Jerry Pollock from our earthly world and wife Marcia Pollock from the spirit world have collaborated to spiritually calculate the God Field. We suggest the possibility that the “Higgs field” and the “God Field” could be one and the same.
