Can Korea take lead in Solar Panel Industry ,
Solar power is the biggest and fastest growing sector in the renewable energy market as it's expected to become an affordable and feasible alternative to fossil fuels. Korea is making increasing use of this energy source. but it is going to be a global player For this week's Industry Insight, here's Song Jisun. This is the biggest solar power plant in the capital that started operating this summer. It's equivalent to 13 football fields with a capacity of 5point6 megawatts enough for 22hundred households a year. Solar energy is quickly rising as the next.
Generation of renewable energy here in Korea accounting for 98 percent of all renewable power plants built in the first half this year. This solar panel system has been set up on the roof of this waterfiltering plant and we have completed a couple of other solar power facilities like this for the Seoul Metropolitan Government. It's fully operational even on cloudy days and only takes three months to install and operate. The market for these solar facilities is booming in Korea. with most being bulit by government or public agencies. Over the past decade. solar energy has emerged.
As the world's biggest source of renewable energy, overtaking wind power. Last year alone it created half of total electricity generated from renewable energy sources. This prospective market is forecast to expand by 10percent each year by 2030. with China and India likely accounting for half of the global demand. By then, the cost of generating electricity from solar power is expected to reach similar levels to burning fossil fuel meaning it could become more widespread without the support of government subsidies. as it mostly depends on at the moment.
The biggest competition in the industry comes from China which produces 80percent of the global demand. at prices 20 to 30 percent cheaper than Korea. Backed by government support, Chinese companies have been producing well over the market demand. with half of the world's top 10 solar panel producers based in China. It's not easy to counter them in terms of price, so Korean firms must improve their costefficiency, at the same time revving up quality and technology. Around 40 players are in Korea's solar power generating market with small and midsized.
Companies focusing on solar cells or modules. while large conglomerates aim to tackle the global market by equipping a complete chain of production to service. We've established a value chain from solar component production to system maintenance. And we aim to expand the solar power generation infrastructure to even include households. Industry experts point out that it is also crucial the government take steps to speed up growth of the domestic solar power industry. To expand its economy of scale and improve its profitability, they add. Korea needs to ease regulations concerning installation.
Concentrated Solar Dryers
Solar Dryers for Cloudy Weather The FAO reported that SubSaharan Africa over 40 percent of the children are deficient in micronutrients. Fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of micronutrients. In Tanzania, horticultural crops are widely produced but 50 to 80 percent of the produce suffers postharvest loss and only 1 is processed for offseason consumption. Solar drying is a lowcost means of preserving produce, but cloudy skies limit solar drying. Hort CRSP researchers are developing concertrated solar dryers that use reflective surfaces to better dry fruit and vegetables in cloudy weather.
By reducing drying time, tomatoes have superior color, texture and nutrient content. 1. Black material absorbs heat, 2. Clear material allows sunlight to pass through, 3. Insulation holds in the heat, and 4. Air enters the bottom, heats up, rises and dries the fruit. Fresh fruit goes in, and the sun goes to work. Concentrated solar dryers improve product quality and boost yearround nutrient for vulnerable populations.

Why Should We Launch Solar Panels Into Space
This episode of DNews is brought to you by Full Sail University. This week the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency announced it wants to get solar power from space. I'm having flashbacks to disasters from SimCity2000. Hello! I'm Trace. Thank you for watching DNews. Back in the 1960s, American aerospace engineer Peter Glaser proposed launching solar panels into space, and beaming the power they collect back to the surface for our use. Since the late 60s the idea has been in a holding pattern mainly because of the expense and worries about maintenance and equipment, but thanks.
To recent developments in solar panel tech the Japanese space firm JAXA says they can finally try it. The plan is ambitious at minimum and cost hasn't yet been calculated, BUT JAXA is determined, and they're not the only ones. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is also interested in spacebased solar. The reason everyone's looking up, is because that's where the sun sits! If we can put a satellite in orbit to collect the sun's rays BEFORE the atmosphere filters them out, and without the worry of a cloudy day, that would be rad. The JAXA Space Based Power System.
Or SBPS will orbit 22,400 miles up, and if done to their specs, would completely replace a nuclear power plant by producing 1 gigawatt of electricity enough to power halfamillion homes. Their plan uses a 10,000 metric ton system, which is. well pretty ridiculous. The largest rocket ever launched was the Saturn V it took our boys to the moon and could only lift about 130 metric tons. Once the power is gathered, a converter in space will convert the electricity into a microwave beam not like in your house, literally waves of energy that are.
On the micro scale. Microwaves can be converted from energy at 80 percent efficiency, which means there would be some loss, but it would be pretty damn efficient about 48 of the power collected would reach consumers. Which doesn't sound great, but it really is. To make sure the array is getting sunlight 24hours a day, JAXA plans to put mirrors on either side of the planet to reflect sunlight at the collector all the time. The Japanese are announcing their plan so far in advance in the hope other countries.
Will gather and help realize the dream of solar from space. Once created, it could provide clean, unlimited energy anywhere on the planet, regardless of remote location. Here's the kicker. It would cost about a trillion dollars. Which sounds like a lot, but it's like 125 bucks per person on the planet in 2030. And that's WAY more than you're paying doe your power bill. Not to mention oil wars and all the pollution, ecological damage, mining and drilling that goes with fossil fuels. We've got commenting areaaassss, check them out and type your feelings on spacebased.
Solar so we can all talk about it! None of this would be possible without computers to run the system, and we need people to write the computer programs. Full Sail University in Florida offers courses to help train tech professionals by blending code and realworld experience. Students of Full Sail have handson access to technology on their first day, get a discounted laptop and all the software they'll need to earn degrees in software, mobile and web development.

Solar Power Air Conditioning System by The Cooling Company in Las Vegas, NV
If there's one thing that's nice to have during our hot Las Vegas summers, besides a cold glass of lemonade, it's a properly working air conditioner. There's nothing quite like basking in the cool air of an air conditioner during a hot day. However, if there's one negative aspect that you dislike about your air conditioner, it's the fact that your NV Energy bill sharply increases. In addition to taking more of your hardearned dollars, many are not environmentally friendly. However, there's a better way to get the benefits of a new air conditioner.
System without the negative impact on the environment or your wallet. That's by using a solar air conditioner. That's right. I said solar. Solar power has become very popular in recent years here in southern Nevada, for use in numerous households for various purposes. We're putting our focus on powering your air conditioner. When not running your AC unit, the system will automatically put that stored energy to good use by powering other appliances. While it may appear that solar powered air conditioners have only a few benefits, they actually have numerous.
Advantages. First, you can easily save hundreds of dollars in power bills by avoiding the use of your current energysucking air conditioner. Why waste hundreds of dollars on electricity to power your air conditioner when you have a free energy source right above your head Second, you can help protect the environment. Traditional air conditioners not only suck up quite a bit of valuable energy, but they also release molecules that contribute to climate change. Solar systems use natural energy to power their units. There's no wasted electricity and no harmful.
Materials exuded into the environment. Third, you can be rewarded by government and utilitybased programs for using renewable energy sources, such as solar power. There are numerous benefits such as tax exemptions, grants, and more that can be awarded to you for using solar powered devices. NV Energy may also reimburse you with credits while using solar power. When you create more power than you're using, this excess energy goes back onto the grid creating credits for you. Finally, solar power is incredibly reliable as solar panels are always gathering solar energy, no matter if the sun is out or if it's cloudy.
