One of the most efficient and cost-effective ways for large-scale utilization of the sun’s thermal energy.
Solar energy technology harnesses the sun’s energy to provide usable power. Solar energy is the ultimate driver of all natural energy systems on Earth, potentially delivering global annual energy needs in approximately 60 minutes, and an equivalent energy supply to equal all known remaining reserves of oil, gas and coal within the Earth, in a mere 23 days.
Photovoltaic cells or solar panels, can be seen on spacecraft, rooftops, and handheld calculators.
Many are familiar with photovoltaic cells or solar panels, which can be found on spacecraft, rooftops, and handheld calculators. These cells are made of semiconductor materials like those found in computer chips. When sunlight hits the cells, it emits photons of light. As the electrons flow through the cell, they generate electricity.
Understanding solar thermal power plants
Solar thermal systems consist of a panel of heat absorbing material, through which a mix of water and antifreeze is pumped to collect heat, using it to heat up incoming water.
Solar thermal systems need to integrate with existing hot water systems, requiring old hot water cylinders to be replaced with larger ones that use several coils.
On a much larger scale, solar thermal power plants employ various techniques to concentrate the sun’s energy as a heat source. The heat is then used to boil water to drive a steam turbine that generates electricity, in much the same fashion as coal and nuclear power plants, supplying electricity for thousands of people.
The key components of Safe Haven Energy solar energy are simple and effective:
- Implementing the use of both hybrid panels and PV panels.
- Exporting electricity, to be traded or sold directly to customers.
- Collecting and storing the thermal energy, preferably in underground storage.
- Distributing stored thermal energy to locations or as district heating.
Solar Power – Data centers
Safe Haven Energy has developed systems that employ Solar Cooling technology, which is tied to our battery storage solutions. These systems are designed to provide a sustained and reliable provision of clean affordable energy.
Data centers are in need of constant cooling which can result in improved efficiency and performance. Safe Haven Energy systems generate thermal energy which is harvested for absorption chilling. Our cutting edge technology offers an all year round cooling function which provides clean reliable energy backed by battery storage, resulting in lower energy costs. Safe Haven Energy Systems ensure that even-voltage energy is maintained, not only to run servers without interruption, but to ensure constant climate control.
Solar Power - Food production
The Safe Haven Energy team has developed multiple unique applications for our renewable energy technology, especially our solar solutions as employed to supply clean energy for farming operations, regardless of location.
Such solutions provide easy access to fresh food and produce to localised communities and the opportunity for employment which improves the standard of living by producing organic food for consumption and sale.
Safe Haven Energy is committed to providing and developing sustainable solutions that promote the growing of organic foods whilst empowering farming communities by sharing cutting edge farming techniques and new technologies.
The Safe Haven Energy team also has the capability to develop greenhouse based solutions which yield higher crop outputs, whilst utilising less water and fewer resources.
Our design and engineering teams at Safe Haven Energy have developed aquaponics systems that exploit the synergistic relationships between fish and plant farming. In our systems, nothing is wasted in the process. Even nutrients from the fish waste, which is high in nitrates and phosphates, are cycled and effectively recycled through the closed filtration systems. and used to fertilise the plants.
The use of our solar and battery solutions allow the set-up of closed systems in relatively remote areas which would not usually appear as commercially feasible. Safe Haven Energy aquaponics technology ensures that no environmental damage occurs due to pollution and the use of PV thermal technology which is carefully used in a system that adjusts and monitors effective water temperature to promote optimum growing conditions year round.
