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 Sit back and see what the wind blows in.

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.

Fixing the Climate: A Radical Solution Explained In a New Book

Eco Friendly Daily

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.

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.
