Capturing and using the renewable energy has been a challenge for many years. Advancements of the last decade have propelled the renewable energy industry to become a major market player. As we improve one of the components we are often pulled back by the need to advance one or more components they interact with. So it is important to look at a complete system when evaluating its advance, safely and usability.

One of the main aspects of the renewable energy is an ability to generate electricity. It can be done by harnessing the sun’s energy, by converting the forces of wind and water, and even fire. The solar panels and wind/water generators are getting more efficient,...
