Did you know that solar energy is the most abundant and widely used form of renewable energy? And did you also know that Indonesia has some of the best places in the world for solar power production? Unfortunately, many people in Indonesia are not aware of the many benefits of solar energy installations and panels. But, there are many reasons why everyone should know these benefits. Through this article, you will learn about four amazing advantages that come from solar energy.
Electricity is essential for economic growth. In Singapore, which is one of the leading economies in Asia, there’s a lot of investment in a mix of power sources to power the thriving economy. The industrial sector tops in electricity consumption at 41.3% followed by the commercial sector at 36.4%. Singapore households consume 16.1% of the electricity available in the country. One reason cited for the country’s strong growth is the reliability of the power supply. The country boasts one of the most reliable power networks in the world. At the heart of this successful power network is efficient power grid regulation. With
Climate change is no longer a future problem but a threat that the modern world has to grapple with. From dangerous weather events, melting glaciers, frequent and intense drought, rising sea levels, to warming oceans, the devastation caused by climate change is now real. Scientists now cite renewable energy as the most effective solution to reverse the threat. Scientists now say clean, renewables such as solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass, and geothermal electricity can power the world and avert the planet-warming effects of fossil fuels. But there’s one big challenge; intermittency of these renewable sources of energy. Despite their positive effects on reversing climate
Long-duration energy storage holds the key to solar and wind power dominating the energy sector. This is because solar and wind energies are produced intermittently throughout the year, thus raising the need for complementary energy storage solutions to solve the intermittency conundrum. The most obvious energy storage systems to use would be the lithium-ion batteries since they are currently the main suppliers of new storage capacity. However, producing long-duration lithium-ion batteries would be so expensive that using them as wind and solar energy reservoirs would be counterproductive. For an energy storage solution to play the long-duration role, production must be achievable within an acceptable price
Many people are becoming more conscious of the environment and their carbon footprint. That’s why they’re constructing zero energy buildings. Buildings are no longer just about protecting people from the elements and sheltering them, but they’re fast becoming a means to generate clean sources of power. This power comes from renewable sources like solar, wind power, geothermal sources, biomass, and many more. This article discusses the case for zero energy buildings.
How to Achieve Net Zero Energy Buildings
Zero carbon buildings are passive and active structures that use renewable energy resources to generate all
As the world makes a push towards clean energy, Singapore is not lagging. There is an ambitious program to increase the share of clean energy in the next 5-10 years. It will wean the country off the current reliance on fuel energy. The switch is timely because most Singaporeans are aware of the disastrous effects of global warming caused by fuel energy. As residents in a region seeing more extreme weather incidents, Singaporeans are eager to see the switch to clean energy happen.
