The future offshore is wind

The future offshore is wind

Posted Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:40:00 GMT by Colin Ricketts

How does a leading country behave when the chips are down at international conferences. While former supporters of green energy default, the EU generally seems firm on windy territory, as well as pushing the solar area energetically.

Nuclear deserted?

Nuclear deserted?

Posted Fri, 25 Oct 2013 09:45:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The function of energy production is to supply electricity to industry. With some reduction in power needs, many countries are adapting their green policies in various ways. The use of nuclear power was declining, then it began to grow, with hope of alternative nuclear fuels and breeder reactors whose waste could be recycled. This avoids the awesome prospect of getting rid of the radioactivity that can last for hundreds of thousands of years.

When will fusion finally become the energy industry we would all want? The future looks literally brighter if the two giant nuclear fusion labs. start competing with their two alternative techniques.

When push comes to pull, it's all the energy of a wave that we're trying to capture. That will seal Scotland's and other bids to reach the goal of completely renewable energy for 2020.

The German situation is relevant to all of our future energy development, in utilising the energy that our renewables create. Efficient and creative storage solutions are emerging from new technology, but will any of the old storage capacity be useful, at least in the short-term?

We have used too much. Let's get back to the not-so-swinging sixties, when at least a third of the world’s resources weren't exploited.

The future may be in fracking, as we reported from the UK last week. It does seem more likely that the improvement recently in integrated solar absorption technology and simpler photovoltaic systems should join with wind energy and the sheer power of hydro-electricity in converting us FROM gas.

While renewable energy struggles to make its mark on politicians, the easy way is to use the good old technology of getting fossils out of the ground and setting them alight. Has anybody remembered the globe is warming quickly now?

A research team in California has produced a system that can be used for artificial photosynthesis system as well as others. It seems likely that such a system will finally be able to produce the promised carbon neutral energy that we need in large quantities at low cost, in order to cool down the rapidly-warming planet.

As Iceland proudly stands as the nation with the most advanced renewable energy facilities, alongside Scotland, Sweden, Norway and Brazil, others in the east and even some les developed nations are liable to play catch up. Will geothermal energy be their answer to a dream?

The Congo is one of the truly great rivers, but it is remarkable in that it can be navigated throughout, up to the Livingstone Falls and the hydro-electric possibilities will be opened up without undue disturbance. That is, if they are opened up?

The efficiency of photo-electric devices is forever improving. Here, researchers have managed to cut costs remarkably and increase stability, although efficiency still needs to be raised for large scale production.

The search for cheaper ways to provide fuels to fit into old technology is one way to face up to carbon dioxide emissions. One solution is extracting sugars from cellulose, using enzymes, or better, a new acid catalyst.
