Renewable Energy

Renewable energy technologies contribute small but arapidly growing portion of the world's energy portfolio. These technologies have the potential to help meet future energy needs,while also addressing increasing concerns about constraints on traditional energy supplies and the environmental impact of fossil fuels.

The following shows the various sources used to meet the global demand for energy.

Our Technologies

Among a variety of alternative energy technologies, our current focus is on solar photovoltaics and solar thermal. In the very near future, you will see us working on wind, and cellulosic ethanol.

Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal
Solar industry is among the youngest renewable energies being developed today.Solar energy includes photovoltaic and thermal technologies.

Photovoltaic energy
Solar PV converts sunlight into electricity using solar cells which are made from a semi-conducting material, such as quartz, that is processed into poly-silicon. Typically, 40 solar cells are grouped together into a solar module. These modules are connected to the electricity grid and mounted in areas which are positioned to capture the most sunlight over the course of a day.
Solar Thermal
Solar thermal "power plants" are a relatively new technology which uses lenses and reflectors to concentrate the sun's energy and generate electricity. The main ways to collect sun's heat are through parabolic troughs,parabolic dishes and solar central receivers. Solar thermal has a variety of uses, the most widespread being the superheating of water and its conversion into stream for thermal electricity generation in large scale solar power plants
