The Disruptive Effect Of Renewable Energy Technologies.
You may think that the big oil and coal companies are continuing with business as usual, but in fact they are struggling. Survival in a world, where the expectation is to move away from fossil fuels and the blame for climate change is starting to assigned, is not easy.
As we have talked about in previous articles, renewable energy technology such as wind turbines that turn kinetic wind energy into clean electricity or solar technologies that do the same for heat or sunlight is largely intermittent. How can we plan an entire growing global economy that requires power only when the wind blows or when the sun shines?
If you live in North America or pay attention to what is said by U.S. politicians you will have will have heard the term or sound-bite " the war on coal". Does it really mean that certain parties have actually declared a war on coal and if so how do they know if they have won?
Five years ago, solar photovoltaic technology was still very expensive compared to fossil fuel or even wind generation. However every year the price of installed solar PV is falling by at least 5%. Today’s prices for solar panels are so competitive that it is causing a revolution in the global energy industry.
Free Online Clean Energy University Level Lecture.
As part of any clean energy education and certainly for people interested in solar energy education and careers a proper understanding of modern solar cell science is critical. Learning how photons are converted to electrons that ultimately become the electricity flow to our homes or devices is so important.
