Pakistan Parliament is the first to run on solar panels

Parliament House Pakistan runs on solar energy

Pakistan Parliament gets the number one and becomes the first legislative house that will use the solar energy to meet its electricity needs.

It will get the electricity from the solar panels plated on the roof of the Pakistan Parliament for its electricity needs and it will also supply the additional electricity to the national grid as well.

Before this, “Knesset” – the Israeli Parliament utilized this type of energy production for their electricity needs but they were only gaining 10 percent of electricity as their backup or secondary source. But the primary source of power was conventionally produced electricity.

Amount of solar energy produced by the solar panels installed at the roof of the Pakistan Parliament can produce total of 80 MWs of electricity. However, the parliament building will only consume 64 MWs  and the surplus/excessive energy that is 16 MWs will be supplied to the national grid.

From Friday, the National Assembly building was consuming the energy produced by these solar panels. Hence, they were not consuming the energy from the national grid but even that they were supplying 16 MWs to it.

Net Metering System has been provided to the National Assembly by the Water and Power Ministry officials, which will calculate the amount of electrical energy provided to national grid. From this way, the National Assembly will generate a fine amount of revenue.

Furthermore, the Net Metering System will also be available for Pakistani citizens, through which they will sell their surplus energy to the government.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan and Chinese President Xi Jinping have collaboratively inaugurated this project when Mr. Xi Jinping visited Islamabad last year.

Total amount of energy needed by Pakistan:

  • 15,000 MWs

Shortage of energy in Pakistan:

  • 3,000 MWs

Conclusion:

From 2015, the Government of Pakistan has taken sufficient steps towards the prosperity of this motherland and to overcome the energy crisis which it is facing. They have installed first solar production unit in Cholistan named as “Quaid-e-Azam Solar Park” which was producing approximately 100 MWs of electrical energy.

Syed Abubakar who is an award winning expert and an Environmental Journalist said that:

“Projects like Parliament’s are an indication of government’s commitment towards renewable energy. We expect it would install more solar plants to meet energy needs”

Android app for earthquake will notify you – An amazing app

android app to detect earthquakes

ANDROID APP FOR EARTHQUAKE IS AN AMAZING APP THAT WILL HELP YOU TO DETECT WHETHER THE SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY OF EARTHQUAKE IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN OR NOT.

“Myshake” is an android application developed by scientists that will extend the android ability to detect whether the suspicious movement or activity is caused by earthquake or by human being.

 

The University of California has done a great job when its researchers unveiled an android app that can help people to detect the movements and will alert you about it prior to its occurrence.

Earthquake detection application will turn your smartphone to earthquake detectors. It will really help the people to know whether these movements have been caused by some human beings doing joke or is really an earthquake.

How android app detects earthquake?

The phone must have android app for earthquake detection “Myshake” that will able to detect earthquakes by crowdsourcing your smartphones as background earthquake detectors.

When some kind of suspicious movements are detected, it alerts you about the earthquake. It sends the signals to its processing centre where the whole information detected from your smartphones is processed by using that knowledge and then it also notifies the nearby people who have also installed this app prior to its occurrence.

Will it be proximate or accurate?

The researchers and developers told that this android application does have some limitations, because of some phones might have low quality of accelerometers. But the reliability and accuracy also depends upon how much that android app is being installed by the people.

The greater the number of people, the greater the accuracy to detect the earthquakes accurately because all phones will work together and all in proximity to each other. Thus, the android app will give you best and accurate results.

The lab in University of California, Berkeley named as “Qingkai Kong of Seismological Lab” told:

“The accelerometers in the smartphones are similar as we used to detect earthquakes in the field of seismology

He further said:

Some of the accelerometers used in the smartphones are of relatively low quality but together they can perform well and accurately. Also, the application runs in the background and consumes very low battery power.

 

Have it been in practical?

A seismologist “Roger Musson” along with the British Geology Survey told it when we tested the application it can easily detect earthquake for prior detection, if the intended victims were at 300 kilometers away from the place of earthquake. But if you are at the zone of earthquake you will get notifications and alert about it a couple of minutes before to get to safer place before it happens or goes much powerful.
