Hybrid solar oven can cook on cloudy days or at night

Hybrid solar oven can cook on cloudy days or at night | Sustainability Science | Scoop.it
The biggest drawback of solar ovens is a simple one - they don't work very well when it's cloudy, and they don't work at all after dark. This hybrid oven may have the answer.

U.S. Solar Market Insight Report (Q3 2013)

United States Poised to Top Germany in Solar Installations

PIRatE Lab's insight:

As the International Energy Agency signals higher than previously forecast global oil demand in 2014, this new report indicates that total installed solar power grew 35 percent in 2013 compared with last year in the United States. Developers are on pace to nearly double the 930 megawatts of photovoltaic solar installed in the third quarter—the second-largest quarter for solar installations in U.S. history. States leading installations this quarter included California, Arizona, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Nevada.

 

The Solar Energy Industries Association’s report predicts U.S. solar capacity could rise 27 percent by the end of the fourth quarter, putting the United States ahead of Germany for the first time in 15 years.
