RENEWABLE GREEN ENERGY

EVERYTHING REVOLVES AROUND THE SUN

 

Undoubtedly the sun is our most precious resource. Without it, there would be neither life nor humankind on earth. The sun enables growth and development. Best of all – its power is virtually inexhaustible.
We want to harness this power so that it can be utilized by every single one of us. Today, this is more important than ever. We, too, want to foster growth and development. To this end, we strive to be a reliable, responsive and trusted partner for our customers and clients. A partner who willingly shares their expertise and knowledge down to the last employee. In short: With Greenergy A&D you are on the sunny si of business.

PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR CLEAN ENERGY DEVELOPMENT

INVESTING IN ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS CRITICAL TO MEETING FUTURE ENERGY DEMAND AND MITIGATING CLIMATE CHANGE. IT REDUCES GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AND IMPROVES PRODUCTIVITY. BY REDUCING ENERGY DEMAND EFFICIENCY ALSO MAKES RENEWAL ENERGY MORE AFFORDABLE, SHRINKING THE SIZE OF SOLAR PANEL NEEDED TO POWER A LAMP FOR EXAMPLE. MOVING TO SUSTAINABLE ENERGY AND USING IT EFFICIENTLY MAKES SENSE IN A RESOURCE-CONSTRAINED GLOBAL ECONOMY.

IN AFRICA INVESTMENTS IN ENERGY PRODUCTIVITY CAN CREATE NEW JOBS, FOSTER ECONOMIC GROWTH, AND REDUCE ENERGY COSTS FOR FAMILIES AND BUSINESS. THE SAVINGS FROM ENERGY EFFICIENCY CAN HELP PROVIDE ENERGY SERVICES TO THOSE WHO LACK IT.

OVER 1.5 MILLION PEOPLE ARE STILL WITHOUT ACCESS TO ELECTRICITY WORLDWIDE, THIS INCLUDES ABOUT 550 MILLION PEOPLE IN AFRICA:

THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITHOUT ACCESS TO ENERGY IN SUB SAHARAN AFRICA IS PROJECTED TO RISE BY 90 TO 100 MILLION INDIVIDUALS IN 2030.

WITHOUT ACCESS TO ENERGY SERVICES, THE POOR WILL BE DEPRIVED OF THE MOST BASIC OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING. PEOPLE CANNOT ACCESS MODERN HOSPITAL SERVICES WITHOUT ELECTRICITY OR FEEL RELIEVE FROM THE SWELTERING HEAT. FOOD CANNOT BE REFRIGERATED, AND BUSINESSES CANNOT FUNCTION.

LACK OF ACCESS TO ENERGY HAS A DIRECT, NEGATIVE EFFECT ON INFANT MORTALITY, ILLITERACY, RURAL-UBARN MIGRATION AND SECURITY. CHILDREN CANNOT STUDY AT NIGHT, AND THE LIST OF DEPRIVATION GOES ON.

                  SOLAR PANELS AT SOLAR MINI-GRID INSTALLATION

 One of the biggest culprits on the decreasing efficiency of a solar panel is the gradual buildup of dirt over the surface. Basically, the dirt acts like a cover, preventing the surface from absorbing the light being directed to it. To prevent this, take a look at the panels and have them cleaned from time to time especially if the panels are installed flat on the roof. Debris like leaves from trees can cover the surface so have someone sweep them or spray them with a garden hose.

Other yucky stuff like bugs and bird droppings can stick to the solar array´s surface. In such cases, it is almost a must to use a damp cloth to wipe the area clean. To prevent damages, it would be a good idea to clean the panels on a cloudy day, early morning or an hour before they get too hot.

You may have recently heard that the much talked about the Gemasolar solar plant in Spain which can provide 24-hour electrical power actually did do just that for 36 consecutive days in mid Summer. At first reading, this occurrence actually gives the impression that a plant of this nature can deliver power that is on a par with coal-fired power.

However, is that statement actually correct, that a plant like this can compare favourably with those large scale coal fired power plants which do provide that 24/7/365 power referred to as Base Load Power?

Spain now has constructed 24 of these type of Concentrating Solar plants and they are spread across the length and breadth of Spain, so we can, in fact, use this as a guide because there are now a fairly significant number of them in operation, and have been in operation now for a number of years.

The technology is referred to as Solar Thermal Power, but the correct term is Concentrating Solar Power. (CSP)

The light from the Sun is focused to a central point which then generates a huge amount of heat. This heat can be used in a couple of ways. It can be used to heat water directly to make steam, or it can be used to make a compound (usually a salt) molten. This molten compound is then used to boil the water to steam. In both cases, the steam is used to drive a conventional turbine which then drives the generator that generates the electrical power.
