Welcome to SolarSteve
Renewable Energy Education for 2010 and Beyond.
Solarsteve is looking to give away his renewable energy education library to a good home.
Solarsteve's entire solar education library [photovoltaic, wind energy, ocean energy, biomass fuels, etc]
is packed up and ready to be delivered.
First choice is a local Community College with a Solar/Renewable Energy Program.
If you're interested in a free renewable energy education library, please contact, ASAP:,

....The world is changing
every day. Renewable energy...photovoltaic power, passive solar
vehicles, alcohol fuels, wind conversion systems...are all
systems for people and industry this millenium and beyond.
In 2010 half of all the people on earth are still living at the 'developing
RESCUE TEAM INC is currently looking at renewable energy solutions for
power as well as the renewably
fueled cities of the future.

Deep cycle, rechargeable, long-life battery banks are
required in all photovoltaic applications for which there are
energy demands other than during sunlight hours. Exceptions are
certain grid-connected PV installations, where the utility grid
acts in lieu of storage. Another exception is "PV pumped-water-storage"
installations, which also acts in lieu of chemical storage batteries.
In this configuration, water is pumped uphill, to be released
only upon demand, when it is forced across the veins of a low-head-hydro,
permanent magnet alternator, thereby creating on-site electricity.
For 2000-2001, lead acid is still the storage medium of choice
for most PV applications, along with nickle-hydride where applicable.

Although there are shining examples, in general, worldwide, the
battery bank component continues to be an economic burden in life-cycle
assessments of autonomous PV applications. Issues such as short
lifespan, weight, initial cost, low energy density and transition
to localized mass production all point to a continued need for
research and development.
