A Report on Solar Cells: Their Development, Causes, Exploration, New Generation, Application in Australia and Future Plans

According to Partain & Fraas (3), the history of the solar cells seems to be quite interesting. From the findings of Edmond Becquerel which took place in 1839, humanity was presented with a scenario where two different brass plates that were immersed in liquid resulted in the production of a continuous current when linked to sunlight. It is widely believed that this orientation is what led to what we now know as copper-cuprous oxide thin film solar cell (Partain & Fraas, 2010). The subs…


A Product Assessment of the Bloom Box

The bloom box is currently in its introductory stage of the product life cycle (pg 190). There are a few companies testing out large scale models but they are still working out the kinks and working to drive down the cost and price for consumers. Fortunately for Bloom many States offer tax incentives that help lower the cost but those incentives could be cut and the future of the Bloom Box is far from certain. The rate of adoption (pg. 188) could be very slow at the consumer level as this would…


A Presentation on Solar Energy

All life on Earth depends on energy from the sun. Solar energy is the source of energy for photosynthesis. It provides the warmth necessary for plants and animals to survive. The heat from the sun causes water on the Earth's surface to evaporate and form clouds that eventually provide fresh rainwater. Solar energy is the result of thermonuclear fusion reactions deep within the sun. These reactions produce so much energy that they keep the surface temperature of the sun at about 10,300B0…


A Look at Alternative Energy Source, the Solar Energy

What does it cost to turn on a light switch, run the TV all day, or take a long hot shower? How many hours a day, week, or year do we have to work just to pay for the gas in our cars, air conditioning and heating in our homes, or storage of old leftover food in our refrigerators? How early could a person retire if he never had to pay an electric bill his entire life? How many people would not be impoverished if they could forgo the monthly electric bill debt?

Solution of the Energy Crisis Problem

Energy crisis means shortage of energy that made by human. This usually involves a shortage of oil, electricity or other natural resources. Energy crisis often leads to economic recession. From the consumer's point of view, the rise in the price of petroleum products used by cars or other means of transportation has reduced consumer confidence and increased their spending. The energy crisis is imminent. The modernization of the world economy benefits from the extensive application of fossil…


Today`s Issue of Energy Crisis

Nowadays, energy has been described as a basic need in human life. For example, when driving to work, I need electricity from using a computer to lighting, using air conditioning, etc. In this example, it is clear that we need a lot of electrical or petroleum energy to complete it. Today's industry is becoming more and more developed, and the energy demand for industrial development is also extremely great. (Colin A. Carter and Henry I. Miller, 2012)The energy on Earth is limited, so it has…


Usage of Radiation from Sun

The radiation from the sun comprises of 46% visible light and 49% Infrared Waves. There has been an increasing demand for heat barrier films in the recent times. These films are fixed to the windows and reduce the transmission of infrared radiation. The most popular films are those which are able to reduce the transmission of infrared radiation while still allowing visible light to pass through. As almost half of the solar energy comes from infrared region i.e. 800nm to 1100nm wavelength. There…


Solar Resources: Solar Energy

RADIATION SHIELDING: The biggest challenge we would have, if we launch our settlement near Ganymede, is the Radiation. Just above the Earth’s atmosphere, there is some deadly radiation which may cause many problems for the human life nearby. To stop the radiation, we would create an artificial layer of shielding using the metals available in space and earth. We would also use the alloys which would be very useful. To mitigate this challenge there would be some deep space vehicles, whic…


Effects of Solar Powered Cars on the American Economy

As the world moves further with technology, the next big step will be the introduction of solar-powered cars. For years, cars have relied on oil, for gasoline, their primary form of power. The United States, only being able to produce so much oil, has relied on importing it from other countries. 63% of all oil is used as fuel (gasoline) for automobiles (Perkins, "Production" 6). With increasing use of automobiles in everyday life, the U.S has not been able to produce enough oil to kee…


Energy Crisis: Renewable Sources

An energy crisis is one that affects the economy because of a shortage of energy supplies or rising prices. This usually involves shortages of oil, electricity or other natural resources. The shortage of these resources can lead to a national economic recession. What causes the energy crisis? Because people use many non-renewable resource like the oil, natural gas. And people don’t have other resource to replace this to use in our daily life. The earth itself is resource-limited, and o…
