4.1 Solar energy and concepts that pertain to it
Solar Energy
The energy portion is concerned with the transformation of solar energy
into electrical and solar energy.
Solar Energy
Energy from solar radiation
Direct Solar Energy
Solar radiation, which arrives without any changes in direction
Wasted Solar Energy
Solar radiation, that arrives after its direction has been altered because of
reflection and dispersion in the atmosphere.
Total Solar Energy
Solar radiation, that arrives in a direct and diffused form.
Solar Cooling System
System that uses solar energy to partially or fully cover the
cooling burden of a given user.
System of solar heating and cooling
System that uses solar energy partially or fully to cover the
of heating, proving hot water, and cooling the given user.
Wind Energy
Branch of energy that deals with developing a method and
means to transform wind energy into mechanical, thermal, or
electrical energy.
Wind Part of the total potential that can be successfully exploited
with the help of modern wind energy equipment while taking
into account the requirements of the social-ecological
Wind Cadastre Systematic collection of information that
describes local wind conditions and that are compiled
periodically or by way of uninterrupted observations from
which quantitative assessments of wind energy and
calculations of expected wind energy production of
installations can be made.
Wind Resource Assessment Wind resource assessment is the
process of characterizing the wind resource, and its energy
potential, for a specific site or geographical area.
