View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-do-solar-panels-work-richard-komp The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. Lesson by Richard Komp, animation by Globizco.
Solar engineers perform site-specific engineering analysis or evaluation of energy efficiency and solar projects for residential, commercial and industrial customers. They design solar domestic hot water and space heating systems for new and existing structures, applying knowledge of structural energy requirements, local climates, solar technology and thermodynamics. With more than 1,600 companies in the solar industry in California, employing more than 47,000 workers, there is a significant demand for engineers who can work with solar technology. Salaries for engineers, including solar energy systems engineers, range from $36 to $55 per hour.

To commemorate the 25th year anniversary of the Stanford Solar Car Project, the Precourt Institute for Energy presents a documentary about the Stanford team's top-five finish in the 2013 World Solar Challenge - a grueling 2000-mile race across the Australian outback. The documentary features team members, family and industry supporters, including project sponsors Panasonic and STMicroelectronics, as well as Google and Tesla Motors. Founded in 1989, the Stanford Solar Car Project is a student-run organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally minded technology. The team designs, builds, and races solar-powered vehicles to compete in the World Solar Challenge, a major international event held every other year in Australia. In the 2013 World Solar Challenge, the Stanford car...

Climate engineering-which could slow the pace of global warming by injecting reflective particles into the upper atmosphere-has emerged in recent years as an extremely controversial technology. A leading scientist long concerned about climate change offers a proposal for an easy fix to what is perhaps the most challenging question of our time. After decades during which very little progress has been made in reducing carbon emissions we must put this technology on the table and consider it responsibly. David Keith is the Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at Harvard University and Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Solar panels floating on the sea: the idea may sound like something from science-fiction, but an Italian firm has made it a reality. In the first scheme of its kind in the world, the panels turn on the water in order to follow the sun. As well as providing renewable energy, the scheme is cheaper to install than traditional solar panels.Duration:02:11
