Solar Energy Solar energy available in U.S. in 1 year is about 10 times the energy available in ALL known oil reserves on the Earth U.S. avg. solar radiation ~125 W/m 2 ~250 W/m 2 surface area 5.10 x 10 8 km 2 (land: 1.49 x 10 8 km 2 ) 9.63 x 10 6 km 2 solar power available 6.38 x 10 16 W (land: 1.86 x 10 16 W) 2.41 x 10 15 W solar energy available (kwh) land: 1.63 x 10 17 kWh 2.11 x 10 16 kWh total energy consumption per year (2003) 1.23 x 10 14 kWh 2.65 x 10 13 kWh solar radiation hitting Earth’s surface (for overhead midday sun) = 925 W/m 2 (power = energy per time, 1 W = 1 J/s)
5 Question It is estimated that the total world’s oil reserves are 1.2 x 10 12 barrels of oil (each barrel is 42 U.S. gallons or 159 L). Approximately much energy is contained in one barrel of oil? (hint: use information given on the previous slide) a. 5300 W b. 2.1 x 10 15 kWh c. 200 W d. 1700 kWh 2.11 x 10 16 /(10* 1.2 x 10 12 )

6 Solar Energy Solar Energy Obviously can’t use it all How much could we use? How is solar energy captured and used? How does the cost per Watt compare (today) to oil-based energy?
7 Using Solar Energy passive Allowing solar radiation to be captured as heat – such as heating water or bricks or other “heat sinks”. Heat is then released as needed. Does not use active mechanical systems active Uses electrical or mechanical equipment. For example, allowing solar radiation to strike a solar cell which converts it to an electric current. Store the electricity in batteries to use later or use it do work (example, powering a motor)

12 Question #2 Which of the following is true? A. Electrons can freely conduct electricity in a solid as long as the solid has a regular crystal lattice. B. Insulators, metals and semiconductors are distinguished by their crystal lattice structure. C. Semiconductors consist of material that is p-type on one side and n-type on the other, where electrons can move across the junction.
