Australia and its Solar Energy

Australia is a country with more than 5000 megawatts of solar energy installed, as one of the sunniest continents in the world; we can’t question why solar energy is a fast growing industry in this country. The amount of solar power installation in Australia dramatically increased in 2009 and 2011, and it quadrupled its number in between 2011 and 2016. One of the reasons in the rapid increase of solar energy in Australia is the...

Western Australia: Residents sell their own excess solar power for the first time

The world’s first trial to help people with solar systems sell their excess electricity to each other, not back to the grid has been launched with the help of the technology behind virtual currency ‘bitcoin’. A Software called ‘blockchain’ is the one that is used to show residents of 10 homes what would happen if they were to trade their electricity with their neighbours, how much they would make and how it would work....

Solar Power Is Now On Water

Are you looking for a place where you can best put your solar panel to get more solar energy? Then your not alone in searching such places. But, what if we tell you that having a photovolataic (PV) on deserted, hot and sunny weather doesn’t always work efficiently. The supply of energy produced by solar panels is influenced by the material itself, and believe it or not, researchers found out that sometimes, a thousand of solar...
