How to Use the Electric Frontier Foundation’s Research for Solar Energy Sources: Bloomberg
As the U.S. economy faces an energy shortage, a $1.2 trillion-a-year shortfall in demand for electricity, some experts say that energy companies must find new ways to harness the renewable energy power that’s been made possible by the rise of electric cars and home solar panels.
The foundation has become a key player in the race to develop new ways of using electric power, harnessing it for renewable power generation that’s both cleaner and safer.
Its research focuses on how to harness electrons, which have the potential to produce electric energy at the same time that they are being used to generate heat.
The institute also researches ways to use electrons to control heat and humidity.
The institute has developed an electric-harnessing system that uses the flow of electrons from a gas turbine to cool a room, while also reducing heat and making the room warmer.
The research has helped the foundation develop a prototype system that can reduce heat by up to 20 percent.
The company also plans to work with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to commercialize the technology.
The National Renewed Solar Energy Association (NSEA) said its research and development group, which focuses on solar energy research, is also working on ways to incorporate electrons into energy production.
“The NSEA’s mission is to advance the field of energy and create opportunities for a new generation of electric vehicle owners and businesses,” said Jennifer M. Nierenberg, director of NSEI, in a statement.
The N SEA is funded by the Department of Energy.
