Go Green...... Sun is the answer

Friday, August 27, 2010

Each decade, brings in a new technology which revolutionise the way world works. Clearly the last decade, I would say belongs to Telecommunications. Internet and mobile telephony in the last decade, clearly changed the way business is done, the words like Back office, call centre, BPO, Outsourcing was unheard till late 90's. More, importantly all these made India more stronger and this made other countries to upon India with envy. Now, let's look at realitistic way of a technology which can change the world we live,

So.,, what next, whats going to be next revolution? has telecommunication reached in saturation?. May or may be not, there might be a slow down telecommunication sector. Is there going to be a high growth sector?. The one technology, which is yet to be completely tapped is green energy, the tapping of solar energy is still at a very nascent stage. Probably the reason for this is all developed countries like US, UK or Japan does not have sunshine all round the world and this might be one of the reason that world do not look at Solar energy is a great way!.

For country like India, which sunshine almost all round the year, it could be one great opportunity to harness this energy and lead in the front. In India solar energy is tapped in a small way for street lighting and water heating. When solar energy is can produce electricity, why not it be used for vehicles like motorcycles,cars and buses. This technology is already is already there, the University of Michigan had demonstrated a solar power car. If one has to think about a situation in India, where 90% of vehicles are solar powered, will India not be a best country to live in, with no pollution and more importantly saving billion of dollars year or year due to huge import bill of petroleum, which can hopefully be used for other infrastructure projects.
For a common man, he may not worry about fuel price hike.

View of solar powered car
Just not the vehicles alone, electricity to houses can be through solar energy. I have a weird thinking, we all know electricity is produced from one state is transmitted to another state within India. Through similar means, if solar energy is used to generate electricity and if there is going to be a way to store and transmit to a different place, if this can lead to export of electricity produced by solar, India would be at its best with sunshine all around the year and could well be on its way to be a pretty rich country in the world.

The solar powers seems to be limitless, I was amazed to read in wiki about, a solar-powered aircraft in Switzerland completed a 26-hour test flight starting at 7 a.m. on 8 July, 2010 which ended at 9 a.m. the next day. The plane was flown to a height of nearly 28,000 feet (8,500 meters) by Andre Borschberg. During the evening, the plane slowly descended to an altitude of 4,500 feet (1,500 meters), where it remained for the rest of the night using battery power. An hour before dawn, the plane still had six hours of flying time left in its solar-fueled batteries.

Once the cost of solar panel reduces and so is the size of panel, it can create wonders, where ever electricity or battery power have been put to used.

In the coming years one has to tap the green energy... and Sun seems to be the answer, will Indian Government and Indian entreprenuers wake up and make up the best of this opportunity?.

Compulsive spending.

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Any economy is bound to grow, if there is increase in spending by the citizens rather then saving. But, over spending can create a dent in the financial health of an individual.

Recently, came about the following article in a blog .
and thought worth sharing, its about the "so called" special days, the fathers day, mothers day, valentine day, womens day and I believe there is even Ice cream day and our own Akshya tritiya, which is more towards making people to spend.

To add a point on Akshaya Tritiya,

i) It was unknown about a decade back, so did the people not prosper without buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya in previous generation?.

ii) Akshaya Tritiya symbolises with Akshaya Patra, which is a vessels which keep producing food when you keep giving. So this ideally means one have to offer help or offer food or give to others towards prosperity, however this has been completed twisted for the benefit of the seller.

The second article is about compulsive spending , both articles are almost in line with my thought on "4 debt traps to avoid" which I had posted on July 5Th.
