Why Go Solar with SunPower Solar Cell Technology. EVARC.pdf. EV ARC™ - : The unique and patent pending EV ARC™ (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) is the worlds first fully autonomous, fully mobile, fully Renewable Electric Vehicle Charging station.

EV ARC™ - :

Designed and fabricated in the US by Envision Solar, it is dimensioned to sit comfortably inside a standard parking space (9’x18′) and is ADA compliant. The 2.3kW Solar Array generates approximately 16kWhrs per day, which are stored, ready for use in the 22kWhr battery storage. Clean solar electrical generation is enhanced by Envisions proprietary and patented tracking solution – EnvisionTrak™ that causes the solar array to follow the sun as it moves across the sky. EV ARC™ at the California Center for Sustainable Energy An EV ARC™ will fully charge one typical EV per day or offer 1/4 charges to multiple EVs in city environments where users will park in them while having lunch, running errands or taking a meeting.

Technomadia’s RV Solar Challenge

No bathroom.. but we had solar! I have been a fan of solar power as long as I have been living on the road. One of the first projects I tackled when I first became nomadic way back in 2006 was adding 130W of solar to the back of my tiny Tab Clamshell. I think it was my abundance of sexy solar power that helped me win Cherie’s heart – our first date I let her plug into the sun and the rest was history. The Oliver, with 200W of solar. When we had our Oliver custom made for us, we designed 200W of solar in from the get-go – and it was an essential enabler for our style of life on the road. Non-reflective Module Surface. Solar3D - Technology. High Efficiency Design to Produce 200% of the Power Output of Conventional Solar Cells Revolutionary Design Our revolutionary 3-dimensional silicon solar cell is designed to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity.

Solar3D - Technology

We have developed two breakthrough features in our single wafer silicon solar cell that we believe will deliver benefits that have eluded the solar industry to date. High Efficiency – Our innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to increase the conversion efficiency by trapping sunlight inside photovoltaic micro-structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. Wide Angle Light Collection - Our solar cell has a special wide angle feature on the surface to capture more light in the morning and evening hours, as well as in the winter months when the sun is not directly overhead.

SOLAR SECRETS of WSC winner team Nuon. World Solar Challenge Although the World Solar Challenge is intended to be a challenge rather than a simple “race”, the quest to be first is one of the things that drives innovation.

And, just as F1 gave the world disk brakes, some of the innovations helping to drive the World Solar Challenge will probably end up giving lessons and technologies to the rest of the industry. Meet Alain Chuzel who, with his wife Linda Bozarth, owns and operates SunCat Solar, a maker of specialist photovoltaic modules used not only by Nuon, but by many of the teams. Chuzel doesn't make the solar cells – his speciality is taking cells from companies like SunPower, and packaging them up with two aims in mind: giving them a surface coating that maximises their ability to gather sunlight, and creating a structure that's suitable for the vehicles (the right stiffness, and light weight).

A consumer photovoltaic, Chuzel explained to The Register, is built with protection from the elements in mind. Traditional Cast Iron Marine Stoves by Navigator Stove Works,Inc. Wiseway Stove Info - Wiseway Pellet Stove. Wiseway GW1949 with Butterfly's Wiseway GW1949 with Vine's Wiseway GW2014 Red n Black paint Wiseway Non-Electric Pellet Stove Wiseway pellet stove is in a class of its own allthough technically classed as a pellet stove because of the fuel it burns.

Wiseway Stove Info - Wiseway Pellet Stove

We feel because it uses no electricity and operates like a wood stove utilizing a natural vent and requires no electricity as all other pelletstoves do, a new classification may be needed, but at this time we will simply call it a Non-Electric Pellet Stove. Because of its uniqe design and operation the fact sheet below will not apply to this stove in many areas as you read below. Wiseway has tested cleaner and with a higher overall efficiency than other pellet stoves built today. The key advantage to a wiseway pellet stove is no electricity lower operating costs, no noise with required augers and blowers found in all other pellet stoves, there again saving you hundreds of dollars in service calls and expenses in parts & replacement costs.

Index. Polymer electrolyte membrane electrolysis. Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysis is the electrolysis of water in a cell equipped with a solid polymer electrolyte (SPE)[2] that is responsible for the conduction of protons, separation of product gases, and electrical insulation of the electrodes.

Polymer electrolyte membrane electrolysis

The PEM electrolyzer was introduced to overcome the issues of partial load, low current density, and low pressure operation currently plaguing the alkaline electrolyzer.[3][1] It involves a proton-exchange membrane. However, a recent scientific comparison showed that state-of-the-art alkaline water electrolysis shows competitive or even better efficiencies than PEM water electrolysis.[4] This comparison moreover showed that many of the advantages such as gas purities or high current densities that were ascribed to PEM water electrolysis are also achievable by alkaline water electrolysis.

Electrolysis is an important technology for the production of hydrogen to be used as an energy carrier. History[edit] Science[edit] [edit]
