Metal Buildings

Renewable Construction? Metal Buildings? What kind of advantages and disadvantages do steel structures provide? Is there a market for metal building over seas? What kind of things can be done to increase the security of metal building designs? Advantages Steel structures are very renewable and fall into the category of renewable construction Large structures can ship on one truck Cheaper to fabricate go up fast Less material to cover a large square foot area Recyclable and can be erected on different sites Large open spans with no center support Structurally sound engineered for wind and earthquakes Easy customizable options windows, doors and insulation Energy efficient with correct insulation packages No wood rot minor damages resulting from floods Commercial options to hang equipment from rafters Easy to repair long life roofing panels Steel structure outlast wood structure with double the life time Steel structures can accept masonry with only small design…

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy comes in many forms.  Depending on the application certain types of renewable energy work well.  Most renewable energy sources work better in large scale commercial applications than they do for residential applications.  For example hydroelectric can be used in small scale applications but its much more suitable as a commercial project.  Fuel cells are expensive much more suitable in large scale installations.  Below are several renewable sources with some brief explanations. Solar hybrid lighting Solar hybrid lighting Also known as passive solar lighting.  The use of natural illumination from the sun instead of artificial lighting from conventional light bulbs.  Solar hybrid lighting can reduce energy bills by collecting light from the roof of a commercial building and directing the light into the building using fiber optic cabling.  It provides a healthy alternative to lighting commercial buildings while significantly reducing energy bills. Solar hybrid lighting is a revolutionary new…

When Oil Prices Fall

After years of relative stability, oil prices have dramatically fallen.  The end of the year 2014 and into the year 2015, in just a matter of six months oil literally collapsed below 50 $ a barrel. Despite the fact that crude oil and solar energy are not direct substitutes, solar stocks are under performing drastically as a result.  Oil companies are loosing profit and laying off as many as they can as fast as they can.  With oil so cheap renewable energy is really not a concern for people.  It has truly dropped off the radar. So the question is why is renewable energy so dependent on the oil price? Is it possible to decouple oil price and solar development? What is to be expected for the coming future?  Will oil prices skyrocket again? Perhaps this is a business tactic, a way for Saudi Arabia to bring the price of…
