|Solar Photovoltaic Modules
Photovoltaic devices use semiconducting materials to convert sunlight directly to electricity. Photovoltaic systems can be installed on a variety of on- and off-grid applications, and can be integrated into buildings and other fixed structures. Photovoltaic cells come in many sizes, but most are 10 cm by 10 cm and generate about half a volt of electricity. PV cells are bundled together in modules or panels to produce higher voltages and increased power. A 12-volt module, for example, depending on its power output, could have 30 to 40 PV cells.
Some of the advantages of this technology over traditional power generation technology include; clean power, renewable and inexhaustible energy source, PV peak power, can create increased autonomy through independence from electricity grid.
||Solar Thermal Collectors
(Space & Water Heating)
Solar thermal systems convert sunlight into heat for space or water heating application. Solar collector gathers solar radiation to
heat air or water for domestic, commercial or industrial use. A flat plate collector is most commonly used in solar thermal system.
It consists of a metal box with glass or plastic cover and an absorber plate at the bottom. Evacuated tubes are also used for solar
thermal application. These collectors are usually designed as multiple evacuated glass tubes which heats solar absorber and solar
With solar heating system installed in your property, you won't need as much gas or electricity to heat up your home or office, thus
saving you a major portion of your utility bills.
Electricity from wind energy is one of the fastest growing methods of electrical generation in the world. Kinetic energy from moving air is converted into electricity by wind turbines that are mounted in locations where there are favourable weather patterns. Wind turbines may be employed individually, but are often installed in groups to form “wind farms” or “wind power plants.” Electricity generated by wind farms may be used locally, or placed on the electric grid to power homes and businesses farther away. Energy derived from wind may also be converted to hydrogen and used as a form of fuel for transportation or stored for subsequent power generation.
|Geothermal (Heating & Cooling)
Geothermal power is energy generated from heat stored in the earth, or the collection of absorbed heat derived from underground. Geothermal power requires no fuel, and is therefore virtually emissions free and insusceptible to fluctuations in fuel cost. And because a geothermal power station doesn't rely on transient sources of energy, its capacity factor can be quite large. It is considered to be sustainable because the heat extraction is small compared to the size of the heat reservoir.
Bioenergy is a renewable energy resource derived from living organisms and/ or their byproducts. Bioenergy is an extensive sustainable energy resource that can supply energy while emitting low CO2 and reducing waste. Liquid biofuels made from rapeseed, corn, sugar cane, palm oil, and a number of other sources are poised for future growth as price of oil derived from fossil fuel continue to increase. Although fossil fuels still account for over 95 percent of the global transportation fuel market, climate and energy security concerns are pushing annual biofuel production growth rates to about 15 percent, mostly in ethanol and biodiesel.
|Fuel Cell (Stationary System)
Fuel Cells are energy conversion device that convert chemical energy to electrical energy. Fuel is fed to the anode side of the Fuel Cell and oxidant at the cathode side. Electrons are released due to the electrochemical reaction and used to power external load while ions formed at the cathode sides are transported through the electrolyte to the anode.
Fuel Cell can operate continuously as long as fuel and oxidant, usually Air, are fed into the system.
The system is quiet since an electrochemical reaction and not combustion occur and the byproduct is clean and environmentally friendly, mainly water and steam.
