US Power Grid At The Peril of Solar Super Storm

A solar super storm could affect the US weather more as compared to the droughts, heat and killer storms that have been experienced this year. According to the national academy of science (NAS) the entire us electric grid which comprises of 2100 high-voltage transformers is at the vague of been destroyed. This is due to [...]

Can Space Beams Bring Green Solar Energy To Earth?

The efficiency of solar panels has always been an issue. However, this might be about to change. The recent test carried out on solar satellites shows that it might actually be possible to transmit beams of energy from space to power cities on earth. Microwaves or laser beams could be used to send energy beams [...]

Imagine Resources Depletion on Earth; The Only Option Would Then Be to Exploit Energy from Other Planets

There are still an abundance of resources available on the earth’s surface. However, if ever energy sources such as fossil fuel or other necessities (non-renewable) would become exhausted, the sole option would be to search on other planets. So the discovery of energy sources might no longer only be envisaged on planet earth but even [...]

Exploiting Solar Energy From Space

Solar power from the space can be developed into a sustainable and clean source of energy around the Earth, on the Moon or anywhere else where man would probably go. Our satellites and space stations that are in orbit around the planet Earth are already energized by solar power. The trick comprises of harvesting the [...]

Where is Solar Energy Heading?

There are many who are for solar energy. However, solar power hasn’t been very cost effective for the recent decade. Now, innovative technology is bringing the price of solar energy down to competitive levels. It is leveling to other alternative sources of energy. It is interesting to consider the idea of generating an unlimited and [...]

Overview of Space Solar Energy

Ex-terrestrial solar energy is an ancient concept but yet not materialized. The sun which shines in the outer space is both brighter and more constant. There is neither day nor night in space. This means that having solar collectors orbiting could provide clean space solar energy 24 hours a day through out the year. If [...]

Awaking Solar Power Generates 600 TW of Energy from the Sun

An analysis of the ‘Report of the Basic Energy Sciences Workshop on Solar Energy’ says that as much as 600 TW of energy can be harnessed from alternative sources of energy. Technology, research and incentives are the only hindrances. The Sun – The Big Solution – Solar energy is one great answer to all our [...]
