THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY ANNOUNCED FIVE ENERGY INITIATIVES THAT WILL MOVE THE NAVY AND MARINE CORPS AWAY FROM A RELIANCE ON PETROLEUM AND WILL DRAMATICALLY INCREASE THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE ENERGY. ONE OF THE INITIATIVES IS TO HAVE BASES PRODUCE AT LEAST HALF THE SHOREBASED ENERGY REQUIREMENTS FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES, SUCH AS SOLAR, WIND AND OCEAN POWER. AND BY 2020, HAVE AT LEAST 50 PERCENT OF THE NAVY'S TOTAL ENERGY CONSUMPTION COME FROM ALTERNATIVE SOURCES. IN YOKOSUKA JAPAN, PETTY OFFICER CHRIS HENRY TELLS US HOW THE INSTALLATION OF SOLAR PANELS IS GENERATING MONEY SAVING ENERGY FOR EVERYONE.
In the hot summer months when electricity is at a premium new solar panels installed at Fleet Activities Yokosuka will be generating electricity saving the base money. The panels here are now going to account for 1 percent of the power we use. What people don't understand is this doesn't just feed power to Sullivan's school it goes into the grid. Whatever the school doesn't use everybody gets to use so it really helps out. With everyone trying to stay cool in the summer, solar works overtime. The time that we use the most power on base Usually the summer bright, hot, sunny days.
Where everyone is running air conditioning this is when this produces its maximum output. The Sullivans solar panels will work together with thin film solar panels installed on the commissary earlier this year to provide about two percent of the base energy needs during peak times providing an annual savings of over $350,000. Petty Officer Chris Henry, Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan. THE SOLAR PANELS ARE A BUILDING INTEGRATED PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEM, WHICH IS ESTIMATED TO CONTRIBUTE THREE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS IN PROJECTED ANNUAL ENERGY SAVINGS FOR FLEET ACTIVITIES YOKOSUKA. FROM DEFENSE MEDIA ACTIVITY, I'M PETTY OFFICER AMARA TIMBERLAKE.
Korea to push adoption of consumer solar panels
The Korean government has announced a pilot program that it hopes will boost the demand for consumer solar power, as well as relieve the burden on the nation's strained power grid. Our Paul Yi explains how this solar panel leasing system works. and how much households can save by becoming early adopters. This apartment building in Korea is being outfitted with a solar panel which independently generates household electricity allyear round. The central government hopes it's a trend that will catch on with mainstream consumers nationwide. The energy ministry recently introduced a new project to promote solar power by allowing.
Households to sidestep the initial high costs and bring a steady stream of revenue to power companies. A specialized company will provide an allinclusive installation, where users pay a certain rental amount. This is the type of business structure that we are proposing. According to the ministry, a single consumer solar panel is able to produce three kilowatts of electricity, which amounts to an average of 285 kilowatts per hour every month. That's over half the electricity an average household in Korea consumes in a single month. When looking at the economics of the program, it provides considerable savings to your energy.
Bill. Average households in Korea pay about 150 U.S. dollars per month for electricity, but using a solar panel slashes that utility fee by up to 82 percent. Even factoring in the monthly rental cost and maintenance of the solar panel, officials say consumers stand to save up to 30 percent per month in power fees. The government also plans to provide incentives for companies who participate and invest in the pilot project. Local private firms, however, are taking a cautious stance due to a lack of demand in the Korean solar market.
How a Portable Solar Lighting System Works
As we know we get a lot of free things in the world, one of which is solar energy and we should use it to its fullest. SuKam has come up with a new product Solar DC Home Lighting System which is a very unique and easy to carry product. We can charge this product from solar energy. Like you can see, we have a 40 Watt solar panel. All you need to do is connect this with the system and it will be charged. When solar energy is not.
Available, we have an adapter which we can easily use to connect to main to charge. There are two LED bulbs provided with the product. We can easily connect these two bulbs with the system and see. These LED bulbs are of 3 Watt and if we connect one LED to the system, it will give us almost 23 hours of battery backup. You can also connect lot more appliances to the system like DC TV. You can connect a 25 Watt DC TV with this small system and this DC TV will start working. Like you can see the DC TV is switched on. You can also.
Connect a 10 Watt DC fan to this system. There is a symbol of fan on this system. So, we can connect the fan here and start the fan. You can also charge your phone with this.There is a USB port provided here in front of it. So, you can connect it here and charge your phone. Here is also a FM port provided. So, you can connect it to FM and listen to it. As you can see my phone is charging here and you can use this product not only in villages.
Korea uses engineering expertise to help developing Southeast Asian nations
The rise of stateofart technology has benefited millions worldwide, but many developing countries have been left in the dark. But Korea's private and public sector say they may have a solution. by providing practical development support in the form of socalled appropriate technology. Paul Yi reports. Here on the west coast of the Philippines, a group of Korean IT volunteers is helping to install solar panels for homes in the Ternate Municipality. The goal is to help the community, which suffers from frequent blackouts, by establishing a steady supply of electricity.
For places where electricity is not very well supplied, this power generation through solar energy is not used together with the gridconnected lines. Therefore it establishes an independent system. However, there are other basic utilities that also lack infrastructure here. Many residents are forced to drink from contaminated springs due to the high cost of bottled water. To provide a sustainable solution, engineers from a leading Korean university have designed and donated a mechanical water purifier. The project uses no electricity and can be easily carried to other locations to provide clean water.
It's not always just a problem about the quality of water. But by utilizing this provided water purifier, we're able to resolve other problems as well. The methods used here are based on a principle called appropriate technology, which is tailored to the social and economic needs of each geographical region. Since this field of appropriate technology is a good fit for this area, we've decided to offer to provide these goods and services. We're also preparing to provide highercapacity products in the future. Korea intends to further expand its appropriate technology initiative to other developing.
