Blog about solar energy

In SolarEnergia we have decided to create a blog. Our intention is to publish articles related to the world of solar energy and energy in general. These are opinion pieces, studies or curiosities that are in some way related to the theme of our sections.

The publishers of SolarEnergía, sometimes we consider that it is good to add certain technical information related more to the world of physics and engineering. We understand that this notebook will help us improve related concepts such as thermodynamics and its laws or the units of the international measurement system, or how to express different types of energy.
