Rise of Renewables: a first for Solar Power in Central Asia

Rise of Renewables: a first for Solar Power in Central Asia

Posted Fri, 03 Apr 2015 19:20:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The race for solar power is on as fossil fuel investments are divested and renewable technologies increase their percentages of many nation’s electricity production. The first major solar power project in every country is a real measure of progress. Uzbekistan stands out as having enormous amounts of solar potentials but with a current 89% usage of fossil fuels. To turn the tables on this energy budget would be a truly great achievement.

Oil boom in Texas is over?

Oil boom in Texas is over?

Posted Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:24:00 GMT by JW Dowey

While the world ponders climate change, Texas, which suffers badly from drought, has been trying to frack its way forward. It now seems these workers will have to return home and that oil is not the future. It has lasted over a century, but the oil executives are now grasping at straws, instead of embracing renewable or at least less polluting energies. New jobs will have to be found, but this is not the first time oil has gone bust!

The power used by surfers for pure enjoyment can be very useful in coastal areas and far beyond. We can harness new ideas, even from medicine, to create these hyper-efficient devices for our future and the present energy needs of many nations.

How will energy be made available in Central Asia in the future? The former Soviet nations have built on their resources and discarded some past mistakes to plan solid and sensible renewable resources instead of continuing with the global warming and water-wasting industries that have helped destroy their Aral Sea.

The future of our energy needs lies heavily with solar power. Unless wind and solar renewables kick off more and more new and technological moves, we will be left with failing and polluting energy solutions by politicians who understand even less about what could happen to the Earth than we do.

Economy and energy around the globe is being jump-started by renewable energies. Whole nations can benefit from these researches on solar panel improvements, but there is always more that can be discovered. We attempt here to keep up to date with one of the many “bright new solar hopes.”

Denmark is fighting hard to combat their past of coal, gas and oil, with the greatest achievements in the wind power generation of electricity, at least in Europe, but possibly the world. Their manufacture of the biggest turbines, given their long experience is making them the people to consult on many areas of installation, maintenance and the future of offshore wind.

A fight has been going on in Canada and the US to prevent tar sand oil pipelines from stretching across both nations. Some unexpected support from state governments and First Nation spokesmen also includes the 90 belugas who live in the giant river system of the St Lawrence. Pollution is not unknown there, but an enormous oil terminal could bring this population to the brink of extinction.

The facts and figures covering the power we generate from wind need to be exposed. A least the solar energy enthusiasts regularly tell us just how enormous their capacity is, but the wind business seems more withdrawn, despite the fabulous energy available and its long history.

How big a dam? The very largest could just be a step too far, with the vast eco-resources of a river destroyed, along with all that depends on the river’s heart-its resident species. Smaller dams mean much less loss of migration opportunity, more room for natural river systems and less disruption of the river bed and its riparian species.

We only consider 2 nations here, with their differing thoughts on an industry that provides cheap and easy energy. The worldwide comparative approach might be appropriate to consider just how often fracking leads to consequences that the perpetrators are very reluctant to investigate. It is up to local people in every nation to decide on their own solutions, but also to look at other opinions where experiences in other countries have taught us what to expect.
