The traditional fossil fuels such as coal and oil are composed of much more complex molecules, with a higher carbon ratio and higher nitrogen and sulfur contents. This means that when combusted, coal and oil release higher levels of harmful emissions, including a higher ratio of carbon emissions, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). Coal and fuel oil also release ash particles into the environment, substances that do not burn but instead are carried into the atmosphere and contribute to pollution. The use of fossil fuels for energy contributes to a number of environmental problems, like greenhouse effect, acid rain, smog ect.. These are becoming pressing environmental problems, particularly for large metropolitan cities. New, clean and un-polluted energy is badly needed.
Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy produced by the sun. Energy from the sun is abundant and solar power systems current total energy demand. But we are not making good use of it!
Here come the SHINE devices: SHINE solar cells and solar panels. They are harnessed by solar collection methods and are used to take light energy as input and convert it into usable energy such as electricity.
How it Works?
When light hits your PV modules, energy is transferred to electrons in the carefully engineered materials. When these electrons move they create an electrical current. The current is converted to useful electricity in the DC to AC inverter. The energy can now be used in your house or sent back to the electric grid.
