Solar fuel cells develop in Sweden.

Solar fuel cells develop in Sweden.

Posted Wed, 28 Jan 2015 07:34:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

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.”

The Wind in your Danes

The Wind in your Danes

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.

The politicians have "COPPED out" and the industrialists have nobody to stop them. Coal will continue now long beyond its Best Buy Date (which was millions of years ago.)

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.

How can we make plastics if no more fossil fuels are unearthed, in efforts to combat greenhouse gas production? The answer has long been thought to be in complex lignins or, in this case, the much simpler cellulose .

Wind and its place in electricity generation.

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the solar energy enthusiasts regularly tell us just how enormous their capacity is, but the wind business seems more withdrawn, despite the fabulous energy available and its long history.

Hydropower means a lot worldwide

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.

Fracking still rears its ugly head

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.

For months, we have heard of nanotechnologies that involve various methods to convert solar energy into electricity or even make hydrogen, but now the old faithful, gold, has been brought into the equation with dramatic results. Let’s hope speculation doesn’t send up the price, but it shouldn’t.

How should we progress to a world of renewable energy? Well the hydroelectric facilities we have are first-class while the wind and the tidal power industries are developing. Solar power represents to many people what photosynthesis means to the plant world-a cheap, reliable source of instant, if not yet storable, power.

The future for solar photovoltaic cells is bright. With wind and tidal power still developing, the efficient PV cells being developed seem sure to absorb more renewable sun-power than before and really push solar energy as a dominant form of energy. This league table will change a lot in the future but several countries are really setting out their store (and grabbing a part of the big market for cells.)
