Advantages Of Tidal Power

There are three main sources of large amounts of energy in large bodies of water. These are, tidal motion, wave motion and thermal storage. For a long time, large bodies of water have been used as heat sinks i.e. to cool equipment, buildings, industrial operations etc. The reverse has not been utulised as much however due to the fact that most bodies of water are below the ambient temperatre required. Therefore, obeying thermodynamics, it is not posible to harness the thermal mass of large bodies of water. Tidal motion is controlled by the...

Advantages Of Biomass And Why You Should use it

Biomass is an ecological friendly way to use what we have around us to create alternative sources of energy. Biomass energy does not require the use of fossil fuels and can also be very cost effective alternatives that also help the impact we have on the environment. Biomass is any living or recently living plant or animal material that can be used as fuel. This can be: downed trees, grass clippings, plant materials or even solid waste. The biomass is then utilized to generate electricity by burning or converting to bio fuel. Biomass energy...

Why Is Geothermal Energy Considered A Renewable Resource?

Geothermal energy is solar heat, stored in the ground.  The concept of using the heat stored in the ground is not a new one.  The first ground source heat pumps were designed in the 60s and 70s, but it has not been until recently that they have been efficient enough to become a viable heating system option. One of the most effective ways to extract this heat energy is to drill geothermal boreholes.  Geothermal boreholes are usually about 100 metres deep and 150mm wide with a loop of pipe inside.  A water/refrigerant mix passes through the...

Solar Power Batteries

If you are not using net metering to sell your energy back to the grid, you will need to store your power in a battery, so you can turn the lights on at night. For obvious reasons, this is especially necessary for mobile solar panel installations, such as those on RVs, caravans or marine (boats) applications. A typical solar installation consists of the following 4 components: Solar Panel Battery Controller Charger Inverter The energy needs to be stored in deep cycle solar power batteries during the day. The batteries are not cheap, in fact...
