Home of the future? Here's one vision

Home of the future? Here's one vision | SOLAR ENERGY | Scoop.it
In this small house, scientists focus on energy: its generation, storage, management, conversion and conservation.

Jim Saber stood in the space between the kitchen and living room and cradled a computer tablet that showed how everything using power in the 399-square-foot residence was interconnected.

Saber, NextEnergy's vice president of business and technology development, has been developing and then giving tours of the home — dubbed the NextHome — to various groups for two years as scientists and entrepreneurs test ideas and tinker with products, many of them with a Michigan connection, in it that they hope to become ubiquitous in homes throughout the nation.

Sunsolutions Pv Energy's insight:

El futuro está en la generación distribuida y que cada vivienda sea como un generedor energético individula interconectado mediante la red eléctrica con otros.

New report estimates Turkey's renewable energy investment payback time less than 15 years

New report estimates Turkey's renewable energy investment payback time less than 15 years | SOLAR ENERGY | Scoop.it

Electricity consumption of Turkey at the year 2023 is estimated to be around 530,000 GWh. Turkey plans to supply 30% or 160,000 GWh of this demand from renewable energy sources according to the recently avowed government agenda Vision 2023.

 

However, the current installed renewable energy capacity is around 60,000 GWh. Detailed literature analysis showed that only wind and solar energy potential in Turkey can solely supply this demand. In this study, two different scenarios were generated to analyse the cost and environmental impacts of supplying this demand.

 

Scenario 1, which is derived from the official Vision 2023 targets, suggests supplying this demand from wind, solar, geothermal energy and hydropower. The total projected cost based on Scenario 1 is estimated to be $31.000 billion and annual greenhouse gas emissions of 1.05 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent. According to

 

Scenario 2 or the contrary setup it is assumed that the required demand gap could not be supplied from new renewable energy investments but equally from coal and natural gas. The projected cost is estimated to be around $8.000 billion and annual greenhouse gas emissions at appalling 71.30 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent.

 

Assuming carbon tax at the year 2023 to be $50 per tonne of CO2 emitted, supplying the demand from renewable energy sources according to Scenario 1 would generate savings worth nearly $2.175 billion from environmental taxes annually. Thus, making the payback time of the renewable energy investments less than 15 years.

Woman completes solar-powered bike ride across U.S. | Saskia de Melker | PBS News Hour | SOLAR ENERGY | Scoop.it

Last week 34-year-old Marissa Muller completed a solo, cross country bicycle ride in 80 days. Her custom bike was powered in part by solar energy, and the impetus for her trip was to show Americans the possibilities of solar power. NewsHour’s Saskia de Melker has the story.
