Britain Increasing Alternative Fuel Sector

Eco Friendly Daily

In the United States many are pushing for alternative fuels in order to decrease or eliminate dependence upon foreign oil. The condition of the environment, particularly global warming, is also playing a role in why governments are turning to alternative fuels. Britain attains a great deal of their fuel from the North Sea, however, the reserves in this area are in decline. Due to this, Britain is being forced to find alternative fuels.

EU Upgrades Relations with Israel, Energy Over Politics

Green Prophet

In advance of the annual EU-Israel Association Council meeting on Tuesday, the European Union stated it will offer Israel upgraded trade and diplomatic relations in over 60 areas, including energy and agriculture. This announcement came almost a week after the European Commission and Israel announced they are increasing cooperative efforts to develop sustainable water supplies and energy-efficiency, including oil fuel alternatives.

Homegrown Energy; Biofuels in the Deserts

Celsias

But because the region is also rich in sunlight, it has the potential to contribute a significant proportion of our energy portfolio as biofuels, especially with new technologies that reduce the need for water. Biofuels are combustible materials derived directly or indirectly from biomass – in this case, plants or algae – and they offer a renewable fuel alternative to fossil fuel burning.

Masdar Wind Project May Blow Back Into Egypt

Green Prophet

As part of a long-term strategy to advance alternative energy, Masdar had sought investment opportunities in the Egyptian windfarm industry, and in February 2010, they finalized plans to build a 200-megawatt wind farm on the Red Sea coastline. The Abu Dhabi-based company specializes in renewable energy, clean technology, and sustainable development. That includes a 12% target for wind energy, equivalent to 7.2

Cheese Waste Anyone?

Eco Friendly Daily

In these days of rising gas and oil prices, companies are turning to fuel alternatives. Instead of carting away used whey, the new system will use it for energy production. So how do you turn whey into energy? The actual energy source in the remaining whey permeate is lactose. Whey energy has also been used in other cheese plants, including the Fairview Swiss Cheese plant in Fredonia, Pennsylvania. Alternative Energy Environment

Aprés COP 18: Will Qatar Rebound with Solar?

Green Prophet

With free water and electricity, and the world’s largest carbon footprint, is Qatar’s new stance on solar a bona fide shift towards fossil fuel alternatives or are they simply catching the latest fashion? Energy usage is sky-high in tiny Qatar. Oil extracted from the desert country’s rich sands isn’t included in the country’s consumption figures (unless it’s burned in-state), but even with that qualification, Qatar is one of the top users of fossil fuels.

A New Approach to Electric Cars

Eco Friendly Daily

And with ideas like Agassi’s, the concept will hopefully travel faster into our world and illuminate the need for today’s fuel. Alternative Energy Shai Agassi, former executive of a software company called SAP, is making his move in renovating the automobile industry. He has started a company called Project Better Place, in hopes of bringing electric cars to the top, by placing electric stations in urban areas for electric cars to “fill up”.

Ishan Sidhu: It is not the first time when PLN has taken an innovative step in developing renewable energy in order to increase the electrification number ratio as well as to reduce the need of fossil fuels. On a daily average about 800 liters of fuel usage will be reduced by PLN due to the operating of this PLTS.

Cost Of Solar Drops Two-Thirds Since 2008; May Be Competitive With Fossil Fuels By 2016

Eco Friendly Daily

A pivotal player in reducing global emissions to curb climate change is through using renewable energy. Originally when solar panels came to the marketplace they were expensive and significantly more than typical fossil fuel alternatives. While solar energy still remains more expensive than fossil fuels, their prices have dropped notably in the last few years. Current installations in the United States generate enough energy for 600,000 homes.

Natural Gas is No Climate Solution - Compass

Sierra Club Compass

There is no more denying that burning dirty fossil fuels like natural gas is to blame for our superstorms, droughts, and wildfires. Yet energy companies are still denying it and continuing to manipulate our government leaders into thinking we have time to reverse the damage that is already done, just by switching to another fossil fuel such as natural gas. Natural gas is not a bridge fuel—it is a gangplank. View an alternate. Dirty Fuels. Energy Outlook.

Researchers Say H20-Intensive Technology is Impossible for Desert Solar!

Green Prophet

The ambitious plan to develop solar and wind energy in North Africa’s deserts could replace harmful fossil fuel alternatives, but researchers are quick to dismiss the notion that renewable energy projects are completely innocent. These, according to Dr. Patt, only require 2% of the water available, which is less than the fossil fuel industry currently extracts.

The ‘Why’ has given way to the ‘How’ Wallace Broecker maintains that humankind will never be able to give up on fossil fuels. Alternative forms of energy are falling way short of the massive demand. Nuclear energy has safety issues. Wind energy is not sufficient…hydrogen fuels would require massive investments in technology and infrastructure…solar energy is still expensive on a larger scale.
