Mining is for renewable energy!

Green Prophet

The Energy and Mines World Congress shows that 2019 will be considered the tipping point for solar and wind projects in the mining sector. Now the industry is understanding that renewable energy makes sense and cents. Sustainability goes well beyond renewables.

Australia Plans Wind Farm, Hopes To Increase Renewable Sector

Eco Friendly Daily

These areas make Australia a hotbed for renewable energy generation. Australia is able to attain massive amounts of energy from solar, wind, geothermal and wave energies. However, Australia currently only attains six percent of their energy needs through renewable energy. One of the greatest issues regarding why Australia has so little contribution from renewable energy is the very sources of the energy.

Wind Industry Seeks National Renewable Energy Standard

Wind Power Ninja

Department of Energy published a study in 2008 that showed that the U.S. could receive 20 percent of its electricity from wind by the year 2030. While this is an exciting prospect, wind power executives have stated that they would need a long-term government commitment to helping make that happen in the form of a national renewable electricity standard (RES). wind turbine part manufacturers and suppliers since builders prefer to source components locally.

Renewable Energy in East Africa is Praised.

Celsias

Last month we reported that Ethiopia had just opened the largest wind farm in Africa. The new wind farm has the potential to change the lives of millions. Ethiopia is briskly pacing towards its goal of zero net emissions from energy production by 2025, a very laudable goal! The BBC has recently highlighted two more examples of renewables success in East Africa.

The Great Transition, Part II: Building a Wind-Centered Economy

Green Blog

In the race to transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy and avoid runaway climate change, wind has opened a wide lead on both solar and geothermal energy. Solar panels, with a capacity totaling 70,000 megawatts, and geothermal power plants, with a capacity of some 11,000 megawatts, are generating electricity around the world. Wind is abundant, carbon-free and nondepletable. Wind is also abundant.

Why Do We Still Use Fossil Fuels & Can Non-Renewable Sources of Energy Be Replaced?

Greentumble

As users, we are mainly interested in having a constant supply of energy which is also affordable so we can go on with our life. Where the energy comes from is rarely something we are aware of unless it carries financial implications. Why do we still burn fossil fuels to produce energy?

13 Arab Nations Get Energy Future Mapped in Helpful New Report

Green Prophet

There is a new report out underscoring the amount of renewable energy being developed in the Arab world with Morocco, Jordan and Egypt coming out as the big winners in the region. The report released by the RCEEE (Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency) in Cairo documents that there are currently 1.55 GW of large-scale renewable energy projects combined in the Arab world.

U.S. Approves Two Renewable Projects Prior To End of 2011

Eco Friendly Daily

The United States has been growing their renewable energy sector steadily in the past two years since the recession. Governmental incentives to generate renewable energy in the wind and solar sectors may be limited in the next few years due to bickering in government, which may greatly impact smaller startups. But the last two years have seen twenty-seven major renewable projects approved in the U.S. Alternative Energy

Small is Beautiful: We Don't Need to Go Big To Create New Energy Sources

Green (Living) Review

PERI's Robert Pollin, author of Greening the Global Economy, says community-owned renewable energy sources are the path to the future PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome to the Real News Network. In the new book Greening the Global Economy Rob Pollin says we don’t need to go big to create new energy sources; in fact, small is beautiful. JAY: So instead of a massive wind farm somewhere out here.

World Bank Supports Turkey-Built 56.4 MW Wind Project in Pakistan

Green Prophet

With crippling floods every year and regular power outages, a new internationally financed wind project in Pakistan is breezy green news to us. Iran, finding itself increasingly isolated due to US-backed sanctions, has been pressing energy-deficient Pakistan to connect with Iran’s natural gas “peace pipeline “ Natural gas is better than coal (which is killing miners) and dirty fuel that Pakistanis use in their households, but it is not the greenest.

3rd Desertec Deal Signed – Algerian Solar Will Ship to the EU

Green Prophet

DII is the consortium that plans to harness the gigantic potential of the desert sun in North Africa and the Middle East to ship massive amounts of renewable energy to Europe, supplying 15% from the desert sun – once dismissed as a dream, but increasingly taking shape. As part of its pledge to spend more than $20 billion in renewable electricity over the next 20 years, Algeria inaugurated the first MENA-region hybrid solar and gas power plant in July.

Alternative Energy – Things you didn’t know

Eco Friendly Daily

As our energy needs rise, as our supplies of fossil fuels run out and as the state of our planet become more precarious, we increasingly need to look at alternative energy sources to meet our requirements and to allow our modern lifestyles. Solar Energy. The sun, a huge burning ball of hydrogen, outputs vast amounts of energy every second. Even the minute fraction that falls on the Earth’s surface is more than enough to supply all our energy needs.

George Monbiot's recent anti-micropower rant is seriously anti-green

Green (Living) Review

Monbiot's words were that Britain cannot afford renewable energy and should and must got for the nuclear option. He is also in favor of large, centralized wind farms and other forms of renewable energy, and sets himself firmly against micro-generation –which he caricatures as a middle class subsidy. George Monbiot cited a McKinsey report saying geothermal cost £3 to save a tonne of carbon whereas.

Plan B 4.0 – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

Cutting carbon emissions will require both a worldwide revolution in energy efficiency and a shift from oil, coal, and gas to wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The energy efficiency revolution will transform everything from lighting to transportation. The shift to renewable sources of energy is moving at a pace and on a scale we could not imagine even two years ago. The energy transition is under way. Wind is not the only option.

Renewable Energy. Wind Power. Tidal and Wave Energy. Geothermal Energy. In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear mishap, Japan has far increased its attention towards alternative energy technologies. After the Tohoku earthquake/tsunami, which triggered the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, finding new energy sources is a prominent R&D area in the country. However, Rhode Island offshore wind farm to generate 1000MW of clean power.

A Radical Approach to the Climate Crisis

The Green Changemakers

Mitigation means moving toward clean energy sources, such as wind, solar, geothermal, and tidal kinetic power. Even the minimal production tax credit for clean energy generated by solar, wind, and hydro power has not been locked in as a long-term commitment. The Chinese wind sector has grown steadily since 2001. Then cheap fossil fuel energy would become expensive, driving investment toward carbon-neutral forms of clean energy like wind and solar.

Nuclear Power is NOT the Solution to Our Global Warming Woes

The Green Changemakers

Fortunately, the Rocky Mountain Institute , one of the leading voices worldwide on energy efficiency and our energy economy, has published a study that addresses this very issue. It is 50% more expensive than large coal or natural gas plants and twice as costly as large wind farms or energy efficiency projects. Even with existing favorable subsidies, nuclear power is not attracting the private investment that renewables are. Tags: Energy

Nuclear Power Continues World Dependence on Middle East Oil

Green Prophet

In its haste to free itself from oil-powered electricity, during the Arab oil shocks of the &# 70s, France switched to nuclear energy. Since then, it has been the poster child nation for nuclear energy, getting almost 80% of its electricity from nuclear power. “The high grades will be depleted within a decade,&# says energy analyst Jan Willem Storm van Leeuwen, at Ceedata, which advises European governments on energy.
