Are you a solar energy expert … or an interested novice? Take this quiz, see where you rank, and perhaps learn more about solar energy and how solar energy is being put to use for passive solar heating, photovoltaic panels, and active solar heating systems.
A material that is superconductive can store electrical energy without any losses. This can help power stations to store energy effortlessly during hours when the demand is not at a peak, and distribute the stored energy whenever it is needed. Superconductivity can reduce transmission losses to zero
An exclusively ethanol two stroke engine is presently not possible. However ethanol blended gasoline can be used to run your vehicles. Find more about how and when to use ethanol blended with gasoline. Also know about what your company has to say about the compatibility of your vehicle with ethanol.
