An Energy Efficient Solar System

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/an-energy-efficient-solar-s...
nergy from the sun can be captured in two ways: as heat energy (thermal energy) or as light energy. Photovoltaic (PV) technology, also known as solar panels, converts the sun's light energy into an electrical current. Solar power systems have become very popular with Australian home owners, with more than 1.6 million roof top systems installed across Australia

Solar Energy and the Future:

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/solar-energy-and-the-future...
Energy from the sun is used in many different forms - water heaters, electricity generation, space heating, greenhouses for plants, and others. But what is the ultimate potential for solar energy in a northern country such as Canada? In this book (2010), the extensive use of large scale solar power plants is examined, with a view to the far future when hydrocarbon resources become depleted. Surprisingly, Canada is well positioned to continue to be a major energy producer far into the future by exploiting its greatest under-utilized resource - land. Land that is unsuitable for agriculture or forestry, and that we have in abundance. In Solar Energy and the Future, we see how this land can be utilized to its utmost, by looking at it from a Canadian perspective.

Solar Energy Houses

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/solar-energy-houses...
Passive and active solar strategies together with the adoption of energy conservation measures and the integration of new materials and technologies can lead to a dramatic reduction of 75-90 per cent in the energy consumption of the buildings. The objective of Task 13 of the IEA's Solar Heating and Cooling Programme was to advance solar building technologies and demonstrate this potential by designing and constructing buildings that met very low energy consumption targets while maintaining a good indoor climate. This revised second edition of this book presents the findings of the Task 13 experts and includes the results of the monitoring programme, conducted to determine the effectives of the techniques and strategies adopted. This new edition also provides a detailed explanation of this research programme in terms of how far the expectations of the Task experts were met and highlights the specific successes and lessons learned from the project.

The Source and Mode of Solar Energy Throughout the Universe

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-source-and-mode-of-sola...
This work is not presented to the reader as a treatise on astronomy, although the different phenomena pertaining to that splendid science are reviewed with some detail, and the established facts bearing upon the subjects discussed are briefly cited in the very words of the great writers upon whose authority they rest. A considerable experience in chemistry, electricity, and the other allied physical sciences long since convinced the author of this work that some simple and uniform principle must control the production of the physical phenomena of astronomy-some general law capable of being extended in its application to the widest, as well as applied to the narrowest, limits of that science. Knowing the absolute certainty of a magnetic and electrical connection between the sun and the earth, as evidenced by the reflected energy of sun-spots, auroras, etc, and that no known cause except electricity could account for some, at least, of the cometic phenomena, it seemed that any comprehensive law must at all events include this mode of energy as an effective cause, and that if the law be uniform in its application, it must equally exclude all others which may be either antagonistic or not necessary.

The Kids' Solar Energy Book

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/the-kids-solar-energ...
A book about solar energy that even grown-ups can understand. Using appealing cartoons with a cast of lively and curious kids, experts Malcolm Wells and Tilly Spetgang demonstrate how solar power works in a wonderfully clear and understandable way. The fun lesson unfolds in a classroom where students explore solar energy and today's technology: active systems, passive solar, and the conversion of sunlight into electricity. In addition to learning why the sun is superior to nonrenewable fuels, young environmentalists will discover the many cool things you can do with this clean and natural energy. And it's all spiced with irreverent humor that makes the complex subject not only easy to grasp, but delightful. Plus, for their adult friends and relatives, it is a simple and clear lesson on the need for solar power in this environmentally challenged world we live in.

The Source and Mode of Solar Energy Throughout the Universe

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-source-and-mode-of-sola...
In endeavoring to present a new and rational interpretation of the source and mode of solar energy, based upon the established principles of recent science, it becomes necessary to briefly cite the facts bearing upon the problem to be solved and the authorities for their support, as well as to describe concisely the different hypotheses at present in vogue, and to point out the well-established insufficiency of these theories, one and all, to account for or explain the difficulties encountered, and which so far have remained as an unsolved enigma. And this problem of solar energy is the grandest and most important question of all physics, for upon the light and heat of the sun depend all physical life and its consequences, animal and vegetable, past, present, and future. If within finite time, and relatively, compared with the enormous vistas of the past, a very brief time, this source of energy is to cease, and our whole system be involved in darkness and death, such darkness and death must be eternal; for the dead sun in his final stage of condensation will be as fixed and unchangeable as the operation of eternal laws can make it, and henceforth there can be no revival or reversals, no turning back of the hand upon the dial, while the laws of nature continue; and outside the uniform operation of the laws of nature there is no source, or mode, or continuance of solar energy conceivable.

Longlisted for the 2017 Man Booker PrizeWinner of the Goldsmiths PrizeWinner of the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards Novel of the Year An Irish Times Book Club Choice*"With stylistic gusto, and in rare, spare, precise and poetic prose, Mike McCormack gets to the music of what is happening all around us. One of the best novels of the year." -Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin and TransAtlantic Solar Bones is a masterwork that builds its own style and language one broken line at a time; the result is a visionary accounting of the now*A vital, tender, death-haunted work by one of Ireland's most important contemporary writers, Solar Bones is a celebration of the unexpected beauty of life and of language, and our inescapable nearness to our last end. It is All Souls Day, and the spirit of Marcus Conway sits at his kitchen table and remembers. In flowing, relentless prose, Conway recalls his life in rural Ireland: as a boy and man, father, husband, citizen. His ruminations move from childhood memories of his father's deftness with machines to his own work as a civil engineer, from transformations in the local economy to the tidal wave of global financial collapse. Conway's thoughts go still further, outward to the vast systems of time and history that hold us all. He stares down through the "vortex of his being," surveying all the linked circumstances that combined to bring him into this single moment, and he makes us feel, if only for an instant, all the terror and gratitude that existence inspires.
