Solar Engineering

You've probably heard that the earth receives more energy from the sun in just one hour than the world uses in a whole year. Given the current global warming and fossil fuel implications, it's obvious that engineers have got to figure out ways to realize this opportunity. If you want to discuss the reasons why, we've got more facts here.

In this section we've aggregated some basic data on solar energy engineering, and provided a few ways that you can contribute your comments and ideas, starting with submitting your comments or questions directly on this page. If you need to upload a file(s) to make your point, use the form at the bottom of the page and we'll publish your points

What is Solar Energy

As any high school science teacher can tell you, all energy is solar. Organic life here on earth gathers light and radiation energy from the sun and converts it into pretty much everything else, from plants that feed cows to fossil fuels.
