All that's Awesome about Renewable Energy
Although "Solar" is in our name, we're interested in all forms of Renewable Energy Production. From Solar Energy, to Geothermal, Wind, Biomass and even Hydropower. If there is something interesting or thought-provoking about any of these topics, you'll find it here.
The Goal is to grow this end of the funnel. It's no secret that the world energy usage has grown every year since our inception. Let's figure out ways to get ahead of it.
While most people think of batteries when talking about energy storage, there are some other lesser known techologies out there that may just boggle your mind. From Pumped Hydroelectric to Compressed Air, Flywheels to Thermal storage.
Although these may not yet be ready for primetime, their approach may just help us leapfrog to the next best technology down the Road.
For you numbers nerds out there, enjoy:
32% of all Energy Consumed in the US is found in the Industrial Sector (manufacturing, agriculture, mining, and construction
29% of all Energy Consumed in the US is found in the Transportation Sector (cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, airplanes, etc)
20% of all Energy Consumed in the US is found in the Residential Sector ( Homes and Apartments)
18% of all Energy Consumed in the US is found in the Commercial Sector (Offices, stores, schools, hospitals, hotels, warehouses, etc)
Our Goal is to show all the different ways these percentages above can slowly but surely move into the Renewable Sector.
