Solar energy technology improving

The Innovation of Solar Technology Never Stops

Solar energy technology keeps on getting better and more efficient. Engineers and scientists around the world and in our country are working day and night to find new ways to harvest solar power at the highest efficiency and the most affordable price. If you think about it, solar energy is just starting to rapidly expand.  As many environmental advocates push towards using renewable energies in place of harmful materials, scientists are looking to make solar even better.

Solar Energy Improvements Lie in Nature

A Michigan State University professor in the department of chemistry believes that the future of solar energy technology lies within nature. By this, he is referring to the abundant materials in nature that are scalable and designed to improve upon the energy conversion systems found in nature.

There is a new study that shows molecules telling scientists how to modify to better absorb solar energy for power usage. It’s a molecular property known as quantum coherence, which may play a huge role in natural photosynthesis.

Nature can tell us more things than we already know about harvesting solar energy. Sunlight is rather low-density for an energy source even though it’s abundant. You need large amounts of space to collect the right amount of solar energy. This is also why the commercial solar energy is ramping up with industrial and commercial companies. The goal for scientists researching solar energy is to harvest molecules that absorb energy from sunlight to be used for energy production and storage. The more molecules scientists find, the more energy we can harvest for the world.

This can have amazing benefits for the solar energy industry. As the industry grows, so does the technology. The easier and more efficient way to harvest solar energy will only help the world deal with problems.

Solar Panels Can Be Beautiful

Modern architecture has changed the way we live and how we build houses, office buildings, stores, schools, and more. Modern architecture does not consist of the cookie cutter designs anymore because architects have found new and beautiful ways to design buildings for aesthetics and function. One of the reasons we find new and modern architecture to be attractive is because it’s unique. Most people don’t realize that the design of these buildings has purpose behind the design.

When it comes to solar energy with architecture, designers are finding new was for solar panels and solar energy to be beautiful within architecture.

Solar Panels Make a Building Better

Solar panels are not only providing your building or land with clean energy, they’re also cooling your buildings. Experts have studied the effects of solar panels on roofs and found that solar panels reduce the heat on the roof. When the sun beats down on your roof, the heat is able to get inside the home causing temperatures to rise. This can cause air conditioning units to work extra hard to cool your building. Having solar panels can potentially reduce your heat by 5 degrees.

Architects designing modern buildings are finding new ways to build functioning facilities whether it be homes or commercial buildings.

At Pope Energy, our job is to help landowners, real estate owners, commercial building owners, farmers, and more develop large-scale solar projects. Modern architecture is changing the way we live and how we improve our world. Without solar energy, this task could be much more difficult.

Here are some examples of architecture where solar energy plays a major role in the design:

Nursery +E in Marburg/Opus Architekten

Shaped like little boxes raised in the air, this nursery is one of a kind with solar panels all around built into the architectural frame. The panels receive the most sun exposure due to the location of the panels and the design of the building.

The Endesa Pavilion

The Endesa Pavilion is the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia. The interesting aspect of the building is that it doesn’t have a particular shape. The roof has different angles with solar panels to maximize the energy intake it receives from the sun. This is definitely a beautiful masterpiece using renewable energy to gather energy for the building.

The Blauhaus at Niederrheim University

This building looks like the windows are angled with blue glass towards the sky, which they are, but those glass pieces are solar panels that can be rotated towards the sun at any time, which maximizes the solar energy that is received.

Architects Are Truly Creative in Modern Architecture

Now that the “fads” are over, architects have become extremely talented and creative in how they build any type of building. We’re witnessing true functionality when it comes to commercial buildings and homes across the United States. As more and more companies resort to solar energy to power their buildings, architects are working to develop new designs and functions.

Pope Energy

At Pope Energy, we are proud to be a part of the movement that is helping the world turn to solar energy and other renewable energy for power. We have helped many commercial industries to get their buildings net-zero energy. The investment sets you up for the future, which is crucial for any business or piece of property. If you want to have a long-lasting business, investing in solar energy is the way to go.

India Solar industry

India is Soaring with Solar Energy Production

It seems that the clean energy sector has not been hit bad by the economy during the COVID-19 Pandemic. India has completed the largest solar tender, while reducing its solar imports from China. Many countries rely on trade for their resources, but now we’re seeing countries develop their own domestic solar energy products for their own country, so they don’t have to rely on other nations’ resources.

What Does the Solar Tender Make Up?

Adani Green Energy Limited and Azure Power were declared the winners of the largest solar tender. The installation of 12 gigawatts of solar power generation and 3GW per year solar manufacturing. The investment equals about $9 billion in USD. In 2019, India only installed 7.3 GW, which is just under 5 less than this project.

What Does this Mean in India’s Solar Aspirations?

India is increasing their solar energy production, which means it brings competitive, domestic manufacturing into play. This will eliminate their need to import solar resources from China. India won’t have to rely on China anymore. India is looking to be independent when it comes to renewable energy.

Along with the benefits of being solar independent from China, India will be looking to reduce their carbon footprint, as well as implement 400,000 direct and indirect jobs for citizens of India. This helps India’s economy and distances themselves from the already critical infrastructure of China.

Pope Energy

At Pope Energy, we are helping the region of New England with their solar development. Commercial entities have the opportunity to change their way of how they harvest energy for their farms, land, buildings, and offices. With our large-scale photovoltaic solar energy projects, you’ll be rewarded with solar energy production to cut your energy bills down and help improve the environment and the way we live.
