    Heating water is the second largest energy use in typical households

    Solar water heaters can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home here in Ireland.One square metre of solar Panel on your roof receives the equivalent of more than 100 litres of oil in free solar energy per year.

    There is a surprising amount of energy in the ground around your home that can be harnessed in order to heat your house effectively and inexpensively.

    The use of geothermal heat pumps can be a fantastic way to alleviate your energy costs and provide heat for your home using renewable and environmentally friendly sources.

    Geothermal heat pumps harness the heat in the ground around your home through the use of piping which contains water.

    As the water travels through the tubing, it is warmed by the latent heat in the ground.This heat is renewed on a daily basis by solar radiation.

    The heat then travels back into your home and is used to provide under floor heating to warm your home.This process is aided by the use of a heat exchanger.

    Wind Power and Wind turbines have been a practical solution to man over millenniums in his power Wind Turbines

    requirements for sailing, agriculture and milling. With the present power crises and the Global warming it has surfaced again as Wind Turbine power Generators incorporating advanced technology in it’s designs.

    along with other environmental issues seriously threatening the very foundations of human civilization,it has surfaced again as Wind Turbine power Generators incorporating advanced technology in it’s designs.

    With the escalation of fuel prices the alternative energy support block has been actively promoting the cause of wind power along with other sustainable energy sources. On the other hand for many sites remotely located from the main power grid and fuel resources wind turbines are invaluable.

    Thin film solar PV cell panels are now being marketed in Ireland by reputed renewable energy promoters.A recent innovation, thin film solar cells are technologically different in their production while being chemical different

    to the traditional Mono crystalline or Polycrystalline silicon PV panels.Also if you are interested in free consultancy on thin film solar PV application for your home or apartment, how it will save on your energy costs, SEAI grants available for solar energy utilization etc. http://www.greentech.ie itself may be contacted.

    Earlier in mid last year they unveiled in the Japanese market another industry first, the remote controlled Color Function, enabling the shade of the white light from the lamp to be altered from a pleasant warm white (similar to that of the incandescent lamp) to a cooler daylight white (akin to bright daylight).With this wireless accessory the user can select the preferred shade of white in accordance with the weather, season of the year, or time of day. For best effect one can select warm white during the winter or at dinner time helping relaxation, or cooler daylight white during the summer or in the morning for a refreshing mood. Also featured is a built-in Dimmer Function, enabling users to enjoy a range of wide illumination settings, (110 to be exact). Notably all these fixtures would function even without the remote controller.Greentech.ie is your friendly advisor on all matters on energy conservation, renewable resources and how to harness them for financial benefits
