Photovoltaic Summer!

Photovoltaic Summer!

Posted Tue, 30 Jul 2013 10:42:56 GMT by Colin Ricketts

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.

Many of the larger nations are producing much more greenhouse gas than they should. The surprise is that the smaller developing nations are being careful about their fossil fuel use.

Biofuel derived from microalgae, a piece in the clean energy puzzle? To renew oil from a plant that does not use up millions of square km of forest hasn't been our dream, but it should have been.

The Battle for Keystone

The Battle for Keystone

The Americans are anxious for more oil and the Canadians are developing shale oil fields in Alberta. The Keystone Project proposes to transport this oil by pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico. While many groups oppose these proposals, other groups are equally in favour, but it is a situation where there will be no true winners.
