Music playing Narrator Over 50 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions you produce in your home are generated by heating, air conditioning and hot water. In other words keeping your home warm in winter, cool in summer with nice hot water on tap is emitting 2.5 to 5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. It also contributes a hefty amount to your electricity bill, between 50 to 60 percent. CSIRO has invented a new solar air conditioning system for Australian homes. This technology solution will reduce Australia's emissions, reduce your energy.
Bills and reduce our demand for electricity and gas. If every home in Australia installed our solar cooling technology it would be the equivalent of saving 15 mega tonnes of CO2 or taking 3.5 million cars off the road. CSIRO's solar air conditioning is an innovative three in one technology that provides hot water, cooling and heating. It uses only a fraction of the electricity of current systems and halves greenhouse gas emissions. The process begins with a typical solar hot water system. Water is heated by solar panels and stored in the hot water tank.
This solar hot water can then be used throughout the home, reducing the need for gas or electricity. A portion of the hot water is diverted into CSIRO's new solar air conditioning unit, which is divided into two compartments. The hot water enters a heat exchanger in the first compartment of the unit. Similar to a car radiator the heat exchanger uses the hot water to heat outside air that has been drawn into the first compartment through the vent. At the same time outside air is also being drawn into the second compartment into a desiccant wheel.
The desiccant wheel is the most critical part of the system. It is used to dry out the air before it goes into the house. Slowly turning the desiccant material in the wheel continuously absorbs moisture in the second compartment and then the absorbent material dries out in the first compartment. The desiccant material is dried out using the hot dry air generated by the heat exchanger. This air is then exhausted outside the home. The dry air from the desiccant wheel flows through an indirect evaporative cooler which creates a stream of cool dry air.
12 volt DC charge SYSTEMS electric boat Home made Flexible SOLAR PANELS solartekTV
Alright. We're gonna go ahead and mount. this 5 WATT panel. that we, fisnished making here a little while ago and uh. this one runs at about twentytwo ta twenty four Volts,. DC direct current and it's actually going to a charge controller uhh, It'll max out 14.2 volts,DC and, we're gonna go ahead and mount it here on the 1060 Surge right on the inside gunnel. aka or the rub rail. try to center it up a bit use number 6 screws.gonna start right here in the middle. 12' length screw, 6.
Cinch it up. don't make it to tight. looking pretty nice. remember, your just cinching it up there. lets take a look here.oh yeh. gonna use a slightly larger screw head here. and. rememeber , jst cinching it up there, doesn't have to be to tight. alright well. that one's installed! looks pretty good! just gotta wire it in. actually, we're gonna wire it in at the two solar panels that we've already got installed wire it in parallel. this will add about a quarter amp of current I'd say about.point 2. the most.amps of current.
How to Install Solar Panels Solar Energy System Fuse Box
Alright, we've brought our positive and negative wires from the charge controller and they're going through a new fuse and they're going to go down to the battery. Let's just take a look at this style of fuse box. It's a little more advanced and, in fact, we have two sets of fuses with a switch, so we can make safe and turn off the whole device and we're still being protected by some smaller 30 amp fuses, here, which should keep us safe. And that is how that works. We'll turn it off and go ahead and connect our batteries. So now we've.
Got our battery here, let's take one of our connections off. Let's see, positive is red, negative is white, or black in this case, I see. There we go. This also has the wires that run out to our charge controller connected, or excuse me to our inverter connected. So, we've got several wires coming off these. Now, we're ready to charge our batteries with the solar. And now we're ready to put our fuse back in this holder which will connect the panel to the charge controller and start charging the batteries.
Energy 101 Concentrating Solar Power
Bjbj Take the natural heat from the sun, reflect it against a mirror, focus all of that heat on one area, send it through a power system, and you've got a renewable way of making electricity. It's called concentrating solar power, or CSP. Now, there are many types of CSP technologies. Towers, dishes, linear mirrors, and troughs. Have a look at this parabolic trough system. Parabolic troughs are large mirrors shaped like a giant U. These troughs are connected together in long lines and will track the sun throughout the day. When the sun's heat.
Is reflected off the mirror, the curved shape sends most of that reflected heat onto a receiver. The receiver tube is filled a fluid. It could be oil, molten salt something that holds the heat well. Basically, this super hot liquid heats water in this thing called a heat exchanger and the water turns to steam. The steam is sent off to a turbine, and from there, it's business as usual inside a power plant. A steam turbine spins a generator and the generator makes electricity. Once the fluid transfers it heat, it's recycled and used over and over.
And the steam is also cooled, condensed and recycled again and again. One big advantage of these trough systems is that the heated fluid can be stored and used later to keep making electricity when the sun isn't shining. Sunny skies and hot temperatures make the southwest U.S. an ideal place for these kinds of power plants. Many concentrated solar power plants could be built within the next several years. And a single plant can generate 250 megawatts or more, which is enough to power about 90,000 homes. That's a lot of electricity.
Stanford Start.Home The Core
So this behind me is the Core. And this was really the central idea of the start home. And when we started this project it was not just about designing a single house but about something that could revolutionize the home building industry. So the core is meant to be a prefabricated module that can ship anywhere in the country and contains all the technical systems that you need to build a house. Inside the core we have all of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing distribution systems for the home. And the advantage of this is that by.
Prefabricating all these pieces together, you take the costliest and most time intensive components of your house and build all of that up front. Really the central aspects of the core is the electrical system which has your standard breaker panel but also it's solar ready with an inverter. This electrical feeds into custom design control pods built by students here at Stanford University and these control everything within the house. They control all of the lights, all of your outlets, all of your equipment, to really make sure that you can optimize for your comfort settings and.
For whatever you want to do within the home. One of the ways that we optimize for comfort is by sensing throughout the house. We sense temperature, humidity, light levels and we compare that to what we get from the outside through a weather station that's located on the back pergola and then feeding data right here into the core. Finally, we're not just dealing with energy, we're dealing with air distribution and also water distribution to the home. So in the back left we have a heat recovery ventilator, which helps to take the heat that's exiting the house.
How Solar Energy Is Converted To Electricity Through Solar Panels
Sunlight is made up of tiny packets of energy, called photons. Every minute, enough of this energy reaches the earth to meet the world's energy demand for a whole year. Photovoltaic panels consists of many solar cells, these are materials made like silicon, one of the most common elements on earth. The individual cell is designed with a positive and a negative layer to create an electric field, just like in the battery. As photons are absorb in the cell, their energy causes electrons to come free. The electrons move towards the bottom of the cell, and exit through the connecting wire. This flow of.
Tesla moves into storage batteries to power homes
Tesla Motors, seeking to expand its business beyond electric cars, will announce late Thursday a push into stationary battery units for homes and businesses. With a $5 billion battery Gigafactory under construction outside of Reno, creating a business around stationary batteries energy moves Tesla past focusing entirely on batteries for its electric cars. Storage batteries could become a huge business because they solve a big problem related to renewable energy. Sure, rooftop solar cells generate juice during the sunny afternoon, but what about the evening The extra energy can be stored in batteries to power homes and businesses after the sun.
Goes down. Demand will be helped along by a California Public Utilities Commission mandate that generators of electric power have stationary storage units. What Tesla is doing is an allin strategy to bring the cleanair revolution to the state. And as California goes, so goes the nation, says Roland Hwang, energy and transportation program director for the Natural Resources Defense Council. Tesla CEO Elon Musk is also chairman of Solar City, a solar energy provider, which now also offers stationary battery units. Solar City says it has sold 300 units already this year.
Tesla hasn't been trying hard to keep its big battery plans a secret. In a job posting for a development operations engineer, Tesla says it has developed a business unit to address the increasing need for stationary storage battery systems, which allows for even higher levels of renewable generation. Analyst Brian Johnson of brokerage Barclays says Tesla disclosed last year that it plans to devote nearly a third of the 15 capacity of its coming battery factory to stationary batteries. We'll see if that happens, he says. Another analyst, Ben Kallo of Baird Equity Research, says in a note that developing a.
