WHAT IS SOLAR ENERGY Solar power is the result of converting sunlight into electricity Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaic (PV). or indirectly with concentrating solar power (CSP). which normally focuses the sun's energy to boil water which is then used to provide power. .
thermal energy.HOW IS IT USED It can be used as energy resource for generating electricity. Solar energy is harvested with the help of solar panels which are exposed to sun light. solar powered street lights etc. Various kinds of solar equipments are available today such as solar cells. which is then converted into electricity and stored or used directly. solar heaters. .
. The first solar cell was constructed by Charles Fritts in the 1880s. researchers Gerald Pearson. In a sunny climate one can get enough power to run a 100w light bulb from one square metre of solar panel. Calvin Fuller and Daryl Chapin created the silicon solar cell in 1954.5–6%. Following the work of Russell Ohl in the 1940s.THREE MAIN WAYS THAT WE USE THE SUN’S ENERGY SOLAR CELLS They are also known as photovoltaic or photoelectric cells which convert light directly into electricity. both Ernst Werner von Siemens and James Clerk Maxwell recognized the importance of this discovery. These early solar cells cost 286 USD/watt and reached efficiencies of 4. Although the prototype selenium cells converted less than 1% of incident light into electricity. Solar cell (PV). is a device that converts light into electric current using the photoelectric effect.
SOLAR WATER HEATERS Here heat from the sun is used to heat water in glass panels. so they get hotter when the sun shines on them. Water is pumped through pipes in the panel. The pipes are painted black. . The water is pumped in at the bottom so that convection helps the flow of hot water out of the top.
SOLAR FURNACES Solar furnaces use a huge array of mirrors to concentrate the sun`s energy into a small space and produce high temperatures. A solar cooker can be used for cooking. but it takes too long for it .
USES OF SOLAR ENERGY GENERATING ELECTRICITY PHOTOLUMINESCENT PRODUCTS This product store light energy and release it later. . They are a useful source of emergency lighting in the event of a sudden power outage.
the tourism industry is responding with energy-efficient and carbon friendly resorts and hotels. Following is the list of various equipments used in hotel industry .VARIOUS EQUIPMENTS USING SOLAR ENERGY AS POWER RESOURCE IN HOTELS As consumers demand more eco-friendly vacation choices.
.SOLAR WATER HEATERS Solar energy when used in water heaters can reduce a significant portion of the conventional energy being used for heating water.
POOL HEATING Solar panels allow to heat the pool in a simple. the bathing season can be extended and the comfort improved without increasing the consumption of energy nor harming the environment. Thus. economic and ecological way. .
but cold can be generated from heat. This is very interesting. it´s in the summer when there is a greater demand for air conditioning and a bigger availability of solar thermal energy can be obtained. .SOLAR HEATING AND COOLING It may seem contradictory. since.
air conditioning and heating.HEAT PUMPS Heat pump is the base of the whole air conditioning system. Its great advantage is that it can produces both. Solar energy based heat pumps are used to replace the conventional energy hungry heat pumps .
. that allows maximum use of the space.RADIANT FLOOR HEATING It is a heating system completely invisible.Radiant floor heating consists of a network of pipes uniformly scattered and buried under the floor. clean and aesthetic.
Gray water recycling and Water decalcification. . sewage treatment.WATER TREATMENT AND RECYCLING – Solar energy is used for various water treatment processes like Reverse Osmosis.
SOLAR LIGHTINGS Solar energy is used in various lighting instruments from street lights. . garden lights to small lightning devices used in indoor.
SOLAR BULK COOKING SYSTEMS The conventional Bulk Cooking system consumes fast depleting fossil fuel on a very large scale. . It also takes a lot of time to cook the food. generating harmful CO and other gases leading to ecological imbalance.
.ADVANTAGES OF SOLAR ENERGY SOLAR ENERGY IS FREE Other than the installation and maintenance cost of the devices there is no other cost involved in solar energy generation. no carbon dioxide like fossil fuels SOLAR ENERGY IS COST EFFECTIVE Solar power gives you a return on your investment. oil) which will inevitably run out. while paying your utility for electricity gives you 0% return. SOLAR ENERGY IS CLEAN Non-polluting. SOLAR ENERGY IS ABUNDENT Solar energy is renewable unlike the conventional resources (coal.
there will be no solar power because solar power is from the sun. So right location is very crucial for solar energy generation . largely because of the high cost of the semi-conducting materials used in building one. LOCATION IS IMPORTANT If there is no sun.DISADVANTAGES OF SOLAR ENERGY CONTINUITY OF SUPPLY During bad weather and nights the supply of solar energy is stopped because of its basic limitation COST The initial cost is the main disadvantage of installing a solar energy system.
