Solar Energy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The 19.9 MW Gemasolar solar plant in Spain features 15 hours of storage and can supply power 24 hours a day.

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis.[1][2]

Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.

In 2011, the International Energy Agency said that "the development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries’ energy security through reliance on an indigenous, inexhaustible and mostly import-independent resource, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, lower the costs of mitigating climate change, and keep fossil fuel prices lower than otherwise. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared".[1]

We are approaching the best American provider of Solar Energy to large scale commercial projects to work with AGM to bring their expertise to the benefit of the Market and the community. Please watch this area of the site for developments that allow for low cost renewable energy that can be provided to the BOOTHS, the HUB, and the main MARKET. We are working on a 50 year plan so this will be a complicated project, but we will integrate the infrastructure to both collect and move the energy around the Market site.
