What we can learn about renewable energy from Australia

Green Prophet

If we look to successful countries in the world we see the hopeful ambitions of countries like Israel which is blessed with an enormous amount of sun and yet its renewable energy output remains low at about 5%, mostly all of it provided by solar panels.

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

Greentumble

A major contributor to anthropogenic climate change, which our planet is experiencing right now, is the large concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses that are being continuously released into the atmosphere from the transportation, commercial, residential, and industrial sectors.

How can countries ensure renewable energy technology is developed sufficiently?

Green Prophet

The world’s largest solar energy dish in Sde Boker, Israel. The demand for energy in today’s world is rising, specifically electricity, as there are now around 1.1 billion people on the planet who have little or no access to it. Having access to energy is key for human wellbeing, economic development and poverty prevention, and ensuring everyone has access is an ongoing challenge for global advancement. Energy

Is Nuclear Power a Renewable or Non-Renewable Source of Energy?

Greentumble

They are the top nuclear power producers in the world and they lead the efforts to convince everyone that this technology is clean and renewable [1]. This would enable them to access some of the benefits (like governmental subsidies) allocated to the expansion of renewable energy.

150 Plants Retired: Another Major Milestone Hit in Moving Beyond Coal

Sierra Club Compass

That campaign included a relentless effort to focus on the pollution from this massive plant, and to push hard for wind, solar, and energy efficiency to replace it. As Somerset resident Camilo Viveiros put it: "Pollution from this plant put kids'' health at risk at more than 80 schools and day care centers across both Massachusetts and Rhode Island, but at the same time, our states are becoming the hub of the quickly growing offshore wind industry.

Research at RMIT University proposes a method to harness high altitude wind power

EcoFriend

B.Sameer Kumar: While alternate energy is taking off at a pretty brisk pace, solar energy is far ahead of the other popular renewable energy source; wind. There are several reasons for this growing gap between the two alternate energy sources. Modern wind turbine designs are changing part of that perception, but what really will help propel wind energy forward in a huge way is high altitude wind power.

Don’t Panic, Do Act: A Climate Resource With Real Solutions

Conservancy Talk

The New York Magazine piece describes a planet that becomes the enemy of the human race by the end of the 21st century. Ranging from onshore wind energy to “alternative cement,” these solutions—in combination with existing strategies and pushed hard by governments, businesses and individuals—could not only stop the growth in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases but also reduce them. These include strategies like energy efficiency to nuclear power to biofuels.

Energy Sprawl is the Largest Driver of Land Use Change in the U.S.

Nature Conservancy - Science

According to a new paper out today in PLOS ONE , energy sprawl – the development of new land area required for energy production – is, and will likely continue to be, the largest driver of land use change in the United States for the foreseeable future. Most people recognize that air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions are a significant problem associated with energy development. A Different Perspective to Understand How Energy Impacts Biodiversity.

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.

Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable U.S.A. Energy Outlook

The Green Changemakers

The newly released Greenpeace report, Energy [R]evolution: A Sustainable U.S.A. Energy Outlook , details how the United States can cut greenhouse gas emissions to the levels we must reach in order to prevent the worst effects of global warming and simultaneously build a sustainable economy. The Energy [R]evolution U.S. can use energy more efficiently and increase renewable energy generating capacity to cut current C02 emissions levels some 23% by 2020 and 85% by 2050.
