It is of great importance to be able to manage the energy of renewable energy sources. Therefore, in order to make solar and wind management, the aims, targets and policies of energies must be determined correctly. Solar and wind management should be planned correctly for purposes such as protecting the environment and trying to reduce energy use. Certain ISO standards have been determined in energy management systems. Companies that meet certain ISO standards in energy management can also establish integrated energy systems.
Why is Renewable Energy Important?
The issue of increasing and developing the use of renewable energy sources is of great importance in Turkey and in the world. The issue of renewable energy, ie energy conversion, will become more and more important. Because the development of energy transformation is of great importance in order to prevent climate change, which concerns the whole world, and to minimize fossil fuel consumption. Therefore, we must develop domestic and renewable energy in our country.
As the sources of energy production in the world, including wind, solar and biological wastes, diversify, the costs spent on energy decrease. In addition to costs, the damage to the environment is reduced. The use of renewable energy sources has been increasing in recent years. The power systems installed in Turkey can generally be listed on the basis of thermal, hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, solar and wind energy.
What is Solar and Wind Energy?
Wind is caused by pressure differences in the air. The type of energy that wind energy has is kinetic energy. Wind turbines are used to obtain wind energy. Wind turbines are an important system that converts the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical energy. Wind turbines can also be installed offshore. In general, solar and wind energies are compared with each other.
Solar energy has usage areas including many different fields. One of them is based on solar energy in domestic heating systems. In the domestic heating system, nearly seventy percent of the houses are supplied with hot water thanks to solar energy. In addition, solar cells or photoelectric cells are used in calculators. Solar energy can also be used as heating, especially in agriculture or greenhouses.
What are the Positive Features of Wind Energy?
Wind energy is cleaner than thermal power plants, namely the energy of coal and gas energy. If we compare wind energy with other types of energy, wind energy, especially solar energy, is known as a more continuous type of energy. Solar and wind energies are two indispensable types of energy in energy conversion.
Solar and wind energy types, which are renewable energy sources, also have positive and negative features relative to each other. When these positive and negative features are compared, solar energy is more disadvantageous than wind energy. Because solar energy panels take up more space than wind turbines. In addition, solar panels cannot produce energy in the evening. However, wind turbines can produce energy at night, during the day or in summer and winter, even if they are not the same intensity.
Although wind energy has many positive features, it cannot be used to meet all energy needs. Because although wind energy is continuous, it is a variable type of energy. Wind energy is also a costly form of energy. Since wind turbines are usually installed in places far from the city, extra power lines must be laid. In this case, it increases costs.
