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

Renewable Energy 101: How Does Solar Energy Work?

The sun has powered organic life on planet Earth since before human beings even existed. And we’ve attempted to harness the power of solar energy since the very beginning. Although early uses for solar energy revolved around methods to ignite a fire, the 20th century introduced mankind to the potential of solar electricity. In this… Continue reading Renewable Energy 101: How Does Solar Energy Work?

Why aren't we only using solar power? – Alexandros George Charalambides

View full lesson: Solar power is cheaper and more sustainable than our current coal-fueled power plants, so why haven’t we made the switch? The real culprits here are the clouds, which make solar power difficult to control. Alexandros George Charalambides explains how solar towers and panels create electricity and how scientists are trying to create… Continue reading Why aren't we only using solar power? – Alexandros George Charalambides

What is Solar Energy?

This video gives a simple but compelling introduction to solar energy. Did you know that all of the energy we use comes from the sun,? You probably know that’s true for solar panels, but the sun is also the ultimate source for energy generated by wind, water, and fossil fuels. Watch this video to learn… Continue reading What is Solar Energy?

How do solar panels work? – Richard Komp

View full lesson: The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. Lesson by Richard Komp,… Continue reading How do solar panels work? – Richard Komp
