Plenty, although the term used is often "photovoltaic module".

Pretty cheap. You'll want to determine fuel efficiencies between selected car models. Also consider how your fuel expenditures would be affected if you had a gas-electric hybrid?

Yes, but you'll need a voltage boost regulator and preferably maximal sunlight on the panels. Many conventional 12V Pb batteries require 13.8V for charging. A charge meter and automatic shutoff are desirable.

Lewis, Yes there are ways...Dig a square hole with 2sq.m in size.Place a 4" pipe in the center of this hole with with 2M, and make holes in the pipe with 10mm drill bit. Remove all mud and fill this hole with natural stones and other building materials in it Cover the entire area with sand... Use this method in all home. it will be very neat for enviournment. with regards, jaijith

Of course, why not?

Green Living • Answered on Mar 08, 2018

If you hook it up correctly and the Voltages match... yes. As for how long... THAT depends on a number of Factors... How much sun, What quality is the Solar Panel, Placement of the Panel.. the goes on and on... But you CAN charge a Battery...I charged a Battery for quite some time using a Large Solar array.... We were Camping an using the Battery for Lights Radio and Fridges.... So it CAN be done

At this moment NO.... But I think the Tyre Companies are working on this

Steam or electric are probably cheapest TO RUN... But most expensive to buy.... Butane would probably be next... It is actually a Mixture of Butane, Methane and a few others... In Australia it is the same as we use for the BBQ..... This would probably be next.... but unless the car is Factory converted,... then you will probably need some Petrol/Gasoline just to start .. You use maybe 2 or 3 Cupfuls each time so you don't use Much... It is also a Good backup if you run out of LPG....... The rest... it depends on th e Government and Fuel Companies which one is cheapest but what it SHOULD be id From cheapest up... Diesel, Unleaded, Premium Unleaded Forget the rest... They would be cheap to run but the conversion would be so expensive it would be not worth the effort

Energy density says with diesel at 35.8 megajoules per liter and gasoline at 34.2, you should go a bit further with diesel. Energy density Wikipedia Diesel, esp. from petro sources, tends to create more hydrocarbon pollutants and particulates per distance traveled, esp on short hops where the engine doesn't warm up to it's higher efficiency range. Diesels like running on long trips. Diesel engines tend to be noisier. Diesel could have issues with fuel gelling in very cold weather if it has insufficient winter additives, and sometimes even that isn't enough for a frigid weather startup.. Gasoline is more refined than diesel and likely has a bigger production environmental footprint than diesel, although diesel has a bigger combustion environmental footprint. Biodiesel can be better depending on its source. Usually you do not have the choice of diesel vs. gasoline for the same model of car, so there will be other factors to consider besides fuel type. Best wishes shopping for your next vehicle.

Bio Diesel is Great... It can be made from Many Organic Products INCLUDING used Cooking Oils. I had a Hilux Diesel I ran on it for a while. To get an Accurate number of Vehicles running on ONLY Used Cooking Oil is impossible due to the Fact that there is no way of Knowing how many get oil and put it into the fuel tank right away... after being Filtered. I know 2 People who collect used Cooking Oils and Filter it three or 4 times before putting it into the Fuel Tank... Thus there is no way to be able to add these people to the list You could probably get rough Figures... not sure where.... I assume this is for some type of exam or similar??? Sorry I can't give a better answer but as you see by what I did answer... It is Impossible to be accurate

Hello - It may depend upon where you reside. In some locations, electric power companies have boosted their rates for those with solar power panels. This web page may prove informative: Without knowing where in the world you reside, it is difficult to provide you with specific information.

coal is a fossil energy source, like oil and gas - all these are considered nonrenewable - well it does takes a couple of million years to form these whereas a tree grows within a couple of years.

HP is just mechanical energy KW is electrical energy (mechanical and other) both are valid - conversion is .747 so yes car has total 960HP of which 160 is electric by a 120Kw motor ...

This helps to reduce climate change. By using renewable energy sources like solar energy, we also reduce our dependence on fossil fuel gas and oil reserves, which are becoming more expensive and difficult to find. It also reduces our dependence on imported fossil fuels, improving our energy security.

DIY recycling projects are always cool, especially when you can turn your trash into something new and useful. There are many ways to recycle before, but it turns out there's so much that you can do with recycling plastic bottles that they deserved their own post. The PET plastic that most plastic beverage bottles are made of is a fairly useful material - it's resilient, flexible, transparent and food safe. As such, there are probably countless applications for these bottles that will give them second lives.
