About Solar Tree - Abstract :- :-
Now a day with the growing population and energy demand we should take a renewable option of energy source and also we should keep in mind that energy should not cause pollution and other natural hazards. In this case the solar energy is the best option for us.
India is a highly populated country, so we should take the advantage of such an energy which requires a very less space to produce energy efficiently. In this case solar tree could be the best one for us. We can also use the technique called “SPIRALLING PHYLLATAXY” to improve the efficiency of the plant. It can be applied in street lightening system, industrial power supply etc. It is much better than the traditional solar PV system in area point of view and also more efficient. So this will be a very good option and should be implemented.
Why We Called It As Solar Tree
As we know trees are present in nature and they can produce their own food material by the process called PHOTOSYNTHESIS. It is the process by which the green plant collects energy from sun and the water present in soil at the day time and can produces their own food material. By this process they are indirectly providing food to the human society because we are depending on the green plants for our food directly or indirectly.
Here we are considering the example for understanding about the solar tree. This is a tree in which the stems connected acts as the branches of the tree and the solar panels are like the leaves. Green leaves are producing food materials for human beings likewise this leaves are producing energy for the society. So it is very appropriate to called it as a tree.
Why It Is Better Than A Traditional System
For the traditional system we require large size of land to generate a small amount of power. It requires about 1% land as compare to the traditional system.
Example – To generate 2 MW power from a pv module we requires 10 -12 acres of land for housing of panels only.
But for the same amount of energy we require only 0.10-0.12 acres of land in case of solar tree.
Why It Is Unique
The unique technique is that flexible panels connected to the stem which can be rotated as our desire. So that flexibility avoidance of wind pressure can be possible. Flexibility offers manual rotating so that maximum power can be obtained.
To fulfil the increasing energy demand the people and saving of land this project is very successful one. This can provide electricity without any power cut problem. The extra energy can be provided to the grid.
