Geothermal Energy is thermal energy created in the Earth's core that is stored and heats the Earth's layers. Thermal energy is essentially the stored heat in stuff, in this instance the Earth. Geothermal energy is ideal for replacing natural gas or oil since it...
Oil has become such an integral element of our lives that it dominates the headlines on a daily basis. Only a few days ago, the oil market plummeted catastrophically as a result of the Coronavirus. The implications of the massive drop in demand caused by lock-down limits...
When talking about the pros and cons of renewable energy, it is evident that the pros are greater than its cons. But despite this, the cons still need to be recognized to ensure issues can be addressed. This article asked professionals what they think are the biggest...
Solar energy is fast turning into a popular and attractive option for homeowners. They not only provide an excellent source of renewable energy, but they are also low maintenance and save on electric bills. We talked to solar energy experts, and here’s why they say it’s a...
When comparing solar panel options, wattage and power output are two important components to consider. You might see numbers like 245W, 300W, or 345W next to the panel's name on a quote from a solar contractor. They're all talking about the wattage, capacity, and power output of...
The beginnings of modern solar energy may be traced back to 1839. A.E. Becquerel, a 19-year-old French scientist whose research had previously focused on phosphorescence and luminescence, developed the photovoltaic effect about this time.  He discovered that an electrical current was formed when gold...
Here are some of the most common benefits of using solar energy. There are no greenhouse gases. The first and most important benefit of solar energy is that it produces no greenhouse gases except for the construction of solar panels. Solar...
In the United States, solar electricity is more economical, accessible, and widespread than ever. Solar power capacity in the United States has expanded from 0.34 GW in 2008 to an estimated 97.2 GW.  This is enough energy to power...
When the sun shines, we may use batteries (technically energy stored as electrochemical potential) or supercapacitors to store the power created by solar cells or steam-driven turbines (energy stored in an electric field, due to the spatial separation of positive and negative...
Unlike solar energy, which uses the sun to create electricity, geothermal energy uses the heat trapped deep below the earth's core. The lava buried deep beneath our earth is as hot as the surface of the sun, and some of that heat escapes. Currently,...
Both the environment and the private economy, solar energy has now been proven to be tremendously advantageous. More and more households are switching to solar energy as their primary source of power as a result of government incentives for...
The sun is a great resource for creating clean, long-lasting electricity that does not pollute the environment or contribute to global warming. Solar power's potential environmental impacts like land use and habitat loss, water use, and hazardous compounds in manufacturing may vary widely depending on the technology.
