Solar cooker is the safe and clean way of cooking food. It uses solar energy as the fuel, which is freely and abundantly available. It is being promoted in number of countries to prevent deforestation and also the pollution created by fossil fuels.
Energy is a vital need of all human beings and can be obtained from renewable and non-renewable sources, which are depleting at a fast rate.
Hydrogen, in spite of a few glitches in the way it is to be used as a fuel, promises to be the future fuel for our use, among a bevy of other alternate fuels. Here’s some juice on whether it really matches up with the expectations and whether it meets the requirements required of an automobile fuel.
Man has worked closely with nature for centuries by harnessing its power for water transportation like in the sailboat or convert wind energy to mechanical work like in drawing water. One classic example where man taps wind power is in electricity generation. Here are the main disadvantages with wind energy electricity generation.
As crude oil price hikes are inevitable these days, the priority to commercialize renewable energies is being pushed forward at a fast pace. One of the promising renewable energies being developed today for commercialization is solar energy. The question is, can three large problems be solved first?
With gas prices rising every day, electric cars are sure to become more and more popular. There are three main types of electric vehicles currently available today.
Electric vehicles (EVs) were used extensively in the U.S. in the early 1900s, but later their use was reduced due to increasing popularity of gasoline. Now that the price of gasoline is skyrocketing manufacturers are coming up with a variety of new electric cars.
Natural gas is a popular alternative fuel being used for vehicles. At present the greatest number of cars and trucks using alternative fuel are using natural gas, available as CNG and LNG.
