worlds largest floating solar power plant

In China, the city of Huainan in the Anhui province, the 40-megawatt solar power plant facility was created by PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply Co.   Poetic? The lake is sited over a former coal mining area. Incidentally, there are many species of fish that are happy to live in shade.  Full story:  china floating solar-power plant Related: renewable energy storage ,

Apparent offset of the winter solstice

Apparent offset of the winter solstice. There are many posts about this on the Internet, but a. Many are confusing, complex or both; b. Many people who haven't a clue still hurl derision at those who have; Hence this brief and simple depiction: Although the winter solstice is within a day or two of the shortest day (amount of daylight), the darkest evening is around December the 10th, and

new solar thermal material

A new solid state material has been developed that stores daylight in a solid state form (like batteries) without the need for expensive batteries.  It can be triggered to release the energy as heat on demand, so simple applications such as harvesting energy during the day to heat the building after dusk are proposed Research is proposed that explores extending the lifetime of storage (

cosmological standard model news

It's about time there was an upset in theoretical physics. Sadly, the cosmological standard model seems to have become dogma in much the same way as other theories over the millenia.  Several news stories, a positive flurry in fact, have emerged over the last few month:   Dark matter theory challenged by gassy galaxies result 25 February 2011 Dark matter may solve 'radio filaments' mystery

What Dark Matter?

quote: Theoretical physicists have discovered that we live in a universe where dark energy pushes things apart while dark matter tries to pull things together. from today's post  - http://bit.ly/1hfzcJq Have they? Mach's Principle states that only relative motion exists. So if the universe revolved around us (relative to what?) we would feel centrifugal force exactly as though we had revolved
