Space-Based Solar Power

In the future, vast solar power satellites may beam energy to the Earth from space. This is the first episode in my series “Resources from Space”. You can watch the other videos here: “Asteroid Mining”: “Mining the Moon”: “Beyond Sustainability”: “The Making of Resources from Space “: You can read more about resources from space,… Continue reading Space-Based Solar Power

Comparing the BEST Solar Panels of 2022

With the exit of LG Solar from the solar panel manufacturing industry, homeowners are having to focus on lesser known solar panel manufactures like @Q CELLS North America and @RECGroupMedia. As a certified partner for both these great companies, it only made sense that we do a video comparing the latest generations. —— free solar… Continue reading Comparing the BEST Solar Panels of 2022

Plants vs Solar Panels: Which is better at capturing solar energy? | We The Curious

Photosynthesis or photovoltaics? Leaves or solar panels? Which is better at capturing the energy from sunlight? Heather and Beth of the Live Science Team investigate the similarities and differences between these two processes, both powered by the Sun. Find out more about the making of the Energy Tree: This video was presented by: Heather Nichol… Continue reading Plants vs Solar Panels: Which is better at capturing solar energy? | We The Curious

Solar Panels UK: Are they worth it?

Try my solar panel cost calculator: The specific system I mentioned in the video might or might not be available in your area, and prices do vary, so it’s best to get multiple quotes to get a feel for costs. Other tools mentioned in the video: – Solar ROI calculator: pvcalc Installing solar panels seems… Continue reading Solar Panels UK: Are they worth it?

Concentrated Solar Power Simple Explanation

In this video, I give a simple explanation on how Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) works. This is the type of solar power that uses thousands of mirrors over hundreds of acres to reflect sunlight on a tower. This heats up molten salt to over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated molten salt then creates steam from… Continue reading Concentrated Solar Power Simple Explanation
