Korea builds worlds first floating solar power plant that tracks sunlight
The sun is our most important source of renewable energy. but unfortunately we havent gotten round to finding a cheap and reliable way of converting into enough electricity for all of us. However. in a small step toward achieving this goal. Korea has just finished construction of a floating solar power plant. the first of its kind in the world. Won Jihyun reports. This massive solar power plant floats on a reservoir in Gyeonggido Province. And round and round it goes. following the suns movements throughout the day. This gigantic facility. that measures around 75hundred square meters was built last.
Year by a Korean energy firm called Solkiss. The floating plant is made of roughly 16hundred solar voltaic modules installed on a floating deck. that rotates on water. Using a tracking system the deck moves in the direction of the sun to maximize efficiency. Since the floating modules can collect sunlight thats reflected off water developers say this type of plant can generate more power than groundbased systems. The groundmounted rotating system can collect solar energy for an average of 3.6 hours a day. Based on our observation from January until June we found out that the.
Israel opens dams forcing hundreds of Gazans out of flooded houses
Over 80 houses have been flooded and hundreds of Palestinians forced to evacuate after Israel opened the gates of several dams on the border with the Gaza Strip, inundating the Gaza Valley in waters up to 3 meters high. In the wake of a recent severe winter storm in the region, Israeli authorities opened the floodgates to discharge the accumulated water. Residents of eastern Gaza reported injuries as well as deaths of livestock and poultry, caused by the Israeli action which allegedly came without prior notification, Gaza's Civil Defense Directorate CDD said.
Sunday. The Israeli army opened the floodgates of a canal leading to central Gaza, which resulted in the removal of sand mounds along the border with Israel, the CDD announced, according to Palestinian News Agency WAPA. Opening the levees to the canal has led to the flooding of several Palestinian homes, and we had to quickly evacuate the afflicted citizens. No casualties were were reported as a result, but more than 80 families had to flee after their homes filled with water levels sometimes reaching more than three meters, the Gaza.
Ministry of Interior said in a statement. The flood forced the closure of the main road connecting alMughraqa district and Nusseirat refugee camp south of Gaza city, leaving hundreds of Palestinians trapped in the floods, a difficult prospect for approximately 110,000 Palestinians left homeless by Israels assault last summer. If Israel opens more dams, further harm could be caused, CDD spokesman Mohammed alMidana warned, noting that the water was flowing from Israeli territory through the valley and into the Mediterranean Sea. Local agriculture was also affected, Brigadier Gerneral Said AlSaudi, chief of the civil.
Defense agency in Gaza, told Al Jazeera. We are appealing to human rights organizations and international rights organizations to intervene to prevent further such action. Those who had been evacuated from the affected area were placed in makeshift shelters in alBureij refugee camp and in alZahra neighborhood in the central Gaza Strip, according to the local alRay news agency. The shelters were sponsored by UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees. This is not the first time Israeli authorities have opened the Gaza Valley dams. Almost every year without prior notice, Israel opens the floodgates to their dams in the direction.
