  • Pannonrider Fully enclosed Solar velomobiles

    It is obviously designed to be used in cities and in the traffic so it has pretty big ground clearance, most probably very good turning circle, full cover etc.The solar panels are integrated in the roof and on the rear side which gives it a very special look. Maybe not so aerodynamic, but this velomobile is not supposed to be a racing machine but more to be a practical vehicle for everyday use.

    Solar Power in a Flashlight Probably one of the best ideas for an emergency flashlight. The solar panel recharges the regular batteries, but it also has backup flashlight batteries in case the main solar battery is dead. And the LED bulb ensures the light has a very long run time. This LED flashlight is surprisingly strong and powerful for a compact flashlight. Plus this is a waterproof flashlight, most are not.

Transcript: Superflares: They're just what they sound like. Solar flares are releases of magnetic energy from the sun's atmosphere. Sometimes — but not always — they bombard Earth with high-energy plasma. Superflares are the same principle, just bigger. Researchers started cataloguing them with the Kepler space telescope a few years ago. They're easy to spot, even on distant stars, since they crank out about 10,000 times more energy than normal flares. And in a new study published in Nature, researchers say the sun is capable of emitting a superflare of its own — even if that's unlikely. Most superflares come from stars that are more magnetically active than our home star, but about 10 percent of the superflare examples researchers analyzed came from stars with similar or even weaker fields. The closest thing we've ever seen to a superflare from the sun is probably the Carrington Event. In 1859, the sun launched a flare so energetic it damaged Earth's ozone layer and set telegraph offices on fire. Experts say a flare that powerful today could do billions of dollars in long-term damage to satellite networks and electrical transformers. Those aren't the sort of things we keep plenty of spares for. And Carrington was a relatively weak example compared to the energies involved in superflares. The good news, according to the researchers, is our solar activity records show these events only come along every millennium or so. What's more, we would probably see unprecedented sunspot activity beforehand, so at least we'd know it's coming.

Looks like the Nevada UFO, recently photographed at the end of October 2015, is probably a solar array. Subscribe for more strange and unsual news! ShantiUniverse: https://www.youtube.com/user/shantiuniverse Emil Enchev: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSdiac5BLasT4x3hEFol2-Q This was first put forward by ShantiUniverse in the comments section, who hosts a great channel. You should check it out, a link will be in the description. It was later put forward again by Emil Enchev, who provided further proof that it was not a UFO but a solar array. Again, a link to his channel will be in the description. For the record, I am not saying it is not a true UFO, I am just saying that with the evidence provided to me, it seems unlikely. Here you can see the photograph of the UFO, which has appeared in a lot of media outlets lately. Here you can see the Nevada solar array named the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project. Take a close look at the shape. It has the same tail section as the structure in the photo which is said to be a UFO. They both are the same shape. In the same location. So the chances that they are the same object, is pretty high, given that they are such a unique shape and colour. It is also worth noting, as pointed out wisely by Shanti Universe, that the reflection from the solar panels is creating glare in the glass of the airplane window, giving out an effect as if light is emerging from the solar array. So it looks like it is not a UFO, in my opinion. Sometimes photographs like this are just too good to be true. From now on, I will make a greater effort to look more closely at the UFO pictures I post. This will not always be possible right away, but I will reflect on them, and if they turn out to be something else, then I will make a video on them. I will also from now on try to keep the channel more focused on videos of a greater quality and videos focused on Esoteric subjects.

They usually cost more to fix than they could be sold for, so people are begging you to come take them away for free! I usually find mine on the classified ads under the "free" section, but they are also common on the sides of streets and alleyways where people have left them for trash. PLEASE NOTE: These lenses are found in "rear-projection" televisions and not all are the same. Some are discolored, and some concentrate to a beam rather than a point. The particular screen I found was a crystal clear acrylic lens that focused to a point. It may have been luck that I found it on my first try, because 3 TV's after that all had lesser grade lenses, but still produced enough heat to melt zinc. Just FYI! You can also see http://youtu.be/xExXjXm0YV0 for examples of these different lenses. It was brought to my attention that Kipkay did a project like this a couple of years ago that he called the "Solar Death Ray". It's probably where FenceKid got the idea, which in turn, inspired me.

Michio Kaku: I believe in solar power, but there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency. Michio Kaku: Some people think that the time is right for the solar revolution, that one day solar power will replace oil and we'll all live in a world that is clean and renewable.  Well, not so fast.  I believe in solar power.  However, there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency.  The other one is lack of a storage facility like a battery.  That's' the weak link.  We simply don't have the efficiency of solar cells necessary to make it economical and competitive today, and the ability to store the energy for long periods of time when the sun is dark, when there are clouds and your solar panels don't work.So my point of view is this: I think in the coming decade, as oil prices start to rise and as the cost of wind and solar and renewables start to drop, the two currents will probably cross in maybe ten years.  So in ten years it will be the marketplace which then begins to drive the whole thing forward because of the dropping cost of solar cells and rising efficiency and the rising price of oil.  Now, why do I believe that oil prices will rise?  Because of something called Hubbert's Peak.  Hubbert was a Shell Oil engineer way back in the 1960s who predicted that we would hit the halfway point for the production of oil in the United States and after that the bell-shaped curve would curve the other way and we would become an importer of oil.  Well, people laughed at him because they said that, "Well, wait a minute.  We have Alaska.  We have Texas.  We have lots of oil fields, and so we're not going to hit the 50% point.  America will always export oil."  Well, wrong.  Hubbert hit it right on the nose to within the year at which US oil supplies peaked and then it went to the other side of the bell-shaped curve.  That's called Hubbert's Peak, when we hit the 50% point.  Now we know that Hubbard was right and the next big question is, are we hitting Hubbert's Peak for world oil production?  That is the $64,000 question.  Many people that I've talked to, senior oil analysts, energy analysts, say that we are either at Hubbert's Peak or within ten years of hitting Hubbert's Peak.  Now some people say, "Well that's stupid.  We discover new oil deposits all the time.  Look at Canada.  We have tar sands of Canada, right?"  Wrong.  It turns out that we will always have oil.  We will never run out of oil, except oil will become more expensive as we go down the other side of Hubbert's Peak.  We would have to discover a new Saudi Arabia every five to ten years in order for this curve to simply go on forever.  That's not going to happen.  I don't care how many tar sands you're talking about in Canada.  You're not going to create a new Saudi Arabia, which produces very clean, very cheap oil, oil that is prized by the oil companies because it is relatively less polluting and has tremendous amounts of profits associated with it.  So we do know that oil prices will fluctuate because of politics, but on average it will start to rise because we will be hitting Hubbert's Peak.  Meanwhile, solar power is going to become cheaper and in 10 years or so the two curves could actually cross, and in 20 years a new game changer arrives and that is fusion power.  The Europeans are betting the store on the ITER fusion reactor to be built outside Cadarache, France in Southern France, and if we have the power of the sun on the earth then sea water could drive all our machines.  So if this scenario plays out as I predict, it means that global warming could actually be a problem only for the next several decades as we enter the solar era and the fusion era.  The problem is we have already lofted so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and we will continue to do so for decades to come, that even before we enter the solar age and the fusion age we will have so much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that we will really screw up the weather.  But on a long-term basis I think that solar energy and fusion power will be the solution, the ultimate solution, for the greenhouse problem.  Directed / Produced byJonathan Fowler & Elizabeth Rodd

I probably won't be able to answer them all in this video, but I'll give you some basic facts so you can get a better idea of how it may be useful to you in everyday life. But, you should be aware that there are both positive and negative facts about solar energy to consider. Let's start with the answer to a basic question: what is solar energy. Solar energy comes from the light of the sun, not from heat. so even cold climates can produce power when the sun is shining. One of the most interesting positive facts about solar energy is its huge potential. The amount of sunlight that comes to earth in a single day - if it could be harnessed - would supply all the electricity needs for every human being on the planet for an entire year. Also, solar is a renewable energy resource that will last for a couple billion more years. We never run out. One of the most important facts about solar energy is that it doesn't hurt the atmosphere. It doesn't pollute or generate carbon dioxide, which a lot of people believe is changing global climate - and not for the better. There's also no noise pollution with solar energy. Electricity is created silently when sunlight hits a solar panel. The sunlight reacts with materials in the panel to produce an electrical charge. This charge can be converted to direct current (DC) to be used in homes. If a home with solar panels generates more power than the home uses, the homeowner may even be able to sell some of the excess to a power company for use on its electrical power grid. Electricity created by home solar energy can be used in dozens of ways - just like electricity from the power company. Heating water, running appliances and providing light are all possibilities for home solar energy. By making your home energy independent in this way, you also make your country more energy independent - freeing it from the need to import oil from other countries. When you have home solar energy, you don't need to worry about power outages - or rate increases by your utility company. Another of the more interesting facts about solar energy is its potential in the transportation industry, although admittedly, practical solar applications for mass transit in the U.S. are probably years away. Solar technology for cars has been developed, but it's not nearly advanced enough for the needs of modern vehicles yet. However, it's interesting to note that a couple of years ago a small aircraft powered strictly by solar energy flew across the entire United States. So those facts are about solar energy that sound positive and promising, But there are other facts that you need to understand.. For one thing, solar panels take up a lot of space. That means solar energy "farms" would have to be huge to provide a significant percentage of a large city's electricity supply. There's also large investment or up front cost to installing solar - especially in a home. It can take years to recover your investment, even though solar equipment is nearly maintenance-free once it's installed. Plus, some geographical areas are more suited to solar power than others. If you live in an area where it's gets cloudy a lot, solar energy may not be sufficient for your needs. Furthermore, your output from solar panels will be reduced if they are shaded by trees or other structures.

It is obviously designed to be used in cities and in the traffic so it has pretty big ground clearance, most probably very good turning circle, full cover etc.The solar panels are integrated in the roof and on the rear side which gives it a very special look. Maybe not so aerodynamic, but this velomobile is not supposed to be a racing machine but more to be a practical vehicle for everyday use.

The Ultimate Guide to DIY Off Grid Solar Power from Tin Hat Ranch | Subscribe: http://bit.ly/THRSub Popular Uploads: http://bit.ly/THRPopular DIY Solar power may seem like a daunting task. Fear not, this video WILL set you on the right path. We start by unraveling the mystery of off-grid solar power and teach you the basics, how to understand and think about your system. From there, we show you how to access and size the proper system for an off grid back-up or full time off grid system. Once you've got that squared away, we talk all about batteries. Of all the components, batteries are probably the most misunderstood. There are some nuances in solar power that you must be aware of; this video will set you straight on where to mount and how to wire your panels for the best efficiency. Speaking of efficiency, do you know the difference between an MPPT and PWM solar charge controller? Just watch the video. Often the most overlooked component of any off grid system is safety, and for that we've got you covered as well. Finally, we finish up talking about living with your new system. There are LOTS of links in the video to the components used, schematics, and further information. ALL of these can be found on our "Ultimate Guide to Off Grid Solar" page- http://goo.gl/e5uZ49 Follow Tin Hat Ranch: Facebook: https://facebook.com/tinhatranch/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tinhatranch Patreon: https://patreon.com/tinhatranch Website: http://tinhatranch.com/ Watch More Tin Hat Ranch: Recent Uploads: http://bit.ly/THRRecent Nuclear Bombs: Survival & Effects: http://bit.ly/THRNukes DIY Off Grid Solar Power: http://bit.ly/THRSolarPower Survival Tutorials: http://bit.ly/THRTutorials Products: Renogy Lycan Powerbox: http://goo.gl/8Ms1o0 The Kill-A-Watt: http://goo.gl/DSBem4 Renogy 400 Watt Premium Solar Kit: http://goo.gl/20z4Q6 Renogy 1000 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter: http://goo.gl/mO7jxB Batteries Plus: http://goo.gl/I50qww Duracell SLIGC125: http://goo.gl/32JmnS Guides: Ultimate Guide to Off Grid Solar: http://goo.gl/e5uZ49 Schematic of the Tin Hat Ranch 400 Watt Renogy System: http://goo.gl/UEmIe3 Solar Assessment Worksheet: http://goo.gl/3KVxYY Music: "Come Play With Me" by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ About Tin Hat Ranch: YouTube's Survival, Prepping, and Gear channel, the Tin Hat Ranch.

He said it does, but the sticker label on the back is misleading. The sticker label says the controller will accept an input of 5V-63V, but since this is a custom voltage setpoint of 20V, the real upper limit is more like 34-36V. He said he is 99% sure that using two 12V solar panels in series would be fine, but it would also be pushing the limit. If you KNOW you're always going to be using this with two 12V panels, consider getting the (cheaper) buck style lithium charger controller from Genasun instead. Don't use two 100W 12V panels in parallel with the GV-Boost. You'll exceed the 8A rating. Just don't do it. I also asked about using the GV-Boost as a 12V power adapter (think, car cigarette lighter instead of a solar panel). The genasun FAQ states: "Genasun solar charge controllers, can charge from a DC source PROVIDED that the input voltage is within spec and the input power is limited such that the rated output current (input current for the GVB series) of the Genasun controller is not exceeded." Boz with Genasun tech support said the quote above is old information. He said the programming has been updated since then. He told me a 12V lead acid battery (rather than a solar panel) would probably work, but it's not something they test on a regular basis ( MPPT doesn't work if your solar panel is a 12V car battery, so it's a really weird use case ), so do so at your own risk. The safest solution for 12V power is to use a high quality pure sine wave inverter. My Go Power 300W pure sine wave inverter ( [affiliate] http://amzn.to/1Q1MNNs ), while bulky, only draws about 3 watts in addition to whatever my mac wall wart is drawing. The efficiency of the genuine mac 85W wall wart appears to be similar to the efficiency of GV-Boost, in my testing. It's bulky and heavy and awkward, but using a high quality pure sine inverter with your existing mac wall wart is probably the safest and cheapest solution for 12V power. It does use a little more power ( 3W ), but the advantage is that you can use your genuine mac wall wart.

Solar Power in a Flashlight Probably one of the best ideas for an emergency flashlight. The solar panel recharges the regular batteries, but it also has backup flashlight batteries in case the main solar battery is dead. And the LED bulb ensures the light has a very long run time. This LED flashlight is surprisingly strong and powerful for a compact flashlight. Plus this is a waterproof flashlight, most are not. I'd say this is the best emergency flashlight to own. stuff millennials need to know, Things millennials don't know, millennial survival tips
