Research Paper: Solar Energy

Powerful Essays
Solar Energy The world consumes larger numbers of energy every year and it is growing. Current limited energy resources used in world are coming from oil, natural coalmine and liquid gas. Growth in world population and commercial revolution require lots of energy sources. In today's energy requirement for industrial boom and awareness to environmental concern, investigation for alternative use of non-renewable and polluting fossil fuels require. The best possible power source is energy from sun. A solar ray in form of heat and delivered in universe is the power emitted from sun as electromagnetic radiation. This solar rays travel towards the surface of earth and if collected properly, a little portion of that heat rays is more than enough energy to power the whole world. The solar ray, which travel and absorbs by universe can be raw material or food to produce major power sources for modern devices. Solar energy can be used in a number of ways. World consume solar rays as renewable energy; important information to know is collectors, application and benefits of solar energy. Collectors The Earth naturally receives and stores solar radiations in lakes, seas, trees, and in the upper layer of earth. Humans on earth use solar energy for variety of reasons. There are many industrial instruments and process, which require heat or electric energy as raw materials. Many places use direct solar emitted heat rays as energy, but to store in other form of energy requires a particular type of devices to collect, convert and store. Many devices serve to receive and store solar heats, but the most affordable and popular solar energy collectors are Solar Ponds, Parabolic Troughs and Photovoltaic systems. Solar Ponds Human use many ways ... ... middle of paper ... ...p to reduce production cost of solar devices in near future, and make it very competitive compare to other energy sources. Federal funding is increasing to prevent any future energy crisis, which United States experienced three decade ago. Solar energy is capable to use as cheap non-renewable energy source to fulfill whole world’s energy demand. Solar power usages reduce earth pollution. Truly, sun power is best energy solution for future generations. References Jha, A. R. (2010). Solar cell technology and applications. Boca Raton, FL:Auerbach. Pimentel, D. (2008).
