  • The Clean Energy Voyage

    The United Nations Climate Convention meeting in Warsaw, Poland, comes with less than two years to go for governments to deliver on their promise of a universal new agreement by 2015 - this is the time for ambition rather than caution to define the international climate negotiations. We have in some ways been here before: the Copenhagen UN climate conference was also scheduled to deliver a ...

  • Clean energy technologies will create waste

    The birth of mitigating our dependency on oil and coal is here. We are rapidly developing energy saving and renewable-energy solutions that are about to transform our lives for the better, bringing a new era of limiting our dependency on fossil fuel, and creating less wastes when generating electricity. But inevitably through this period we will create other wastes, some hazardous. These changes ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...

  • How well is clean energy weathering the recession?

    The clean energy industry may not be popping the champagne cork, but it is at least holding the bottle in hand. While not unscathed by the recession, the industry sees growth in several sectors, according to recent reports. For example, use of smart meters—a key technology for better energy management and efficiency – is increasing at a rapid clip. A study by ABI Research, “Advanced Metering ...

  • Insurers Have Huge Role As Clean Energy Investors

    Conversations about climate change and the insurance industry usually focus on catastrophic storms and their damaging financial ripples for insurance providers. Given skyrocketing extreme-weather losses in recent years, it’s surely a legitimate issue that should be making insurers re-think their business models. But insurers have another important role on the climate issue, which is how to ...

  • It’s time to invest in clean energy in Africa

    Private-sector investment in electricity is sitting on the sidelines in Africa. Here’s how we can change that. The math for Africa’s clean energy future is adding up. Solar lamps are spreading like fireflies across Ghana. A first-of-its-kind solar farm in Rwanda is providing electricity for 15,000 rural homes. Utility-scale solar and wind projects are being built in ...

  • New methods of hydrogen production are being deployed which are helping increase the efficiency of biomass facilities, creating high value clean energy from sources of waste

    Biomass can easily be converted to hydrogen using decade’s matured, highly reliable technology that is simply applied in non-standard ways. In large scale anaerobic digesters and other biogas projects (including landfill gas) you can maximize the utility of the natural gas product by converting it to high purity hydrogen fuel. In modern gasification plants, operators will effectively be ...

  • Renewable, clean energy: the petroleum footprint - wind farms under analysis

    This paper presents a methodology to assess projects for the generation of clean, renewable energy. Such methodology is applied here to estimate the consumption of fossil fuels (referred to as 'oil'), required for the construction, operation and maintenance of a wind farm consisting of 97 turbines of 3 MW each. Results show that such consumption represents a conservative 8–9% of the total energy ...

  • Notus Clean Energy LLC – Cape Cod, MA - Case Study

    The owners of a Falmouth, MA industrial park parcel saw the potential in 2004 for a utility-scale wind turbine sited in a large, well-elevated location. A large turbine could supply electricity for the complex and create surplus power that could be delivered back to a regional utility. Despite receiving more than 100 letters of support from residents and businesses, the proposal required five ...

  • On clean energy, time to follow where Google, GE, Buffett lead

    Google is backing it. So is Warren Buffett, America’s most-watched investor. GE, one of the world’s biggest manufacturers, is too. Each of these corporate icons is placing big bets and hundreds of millions of dollars on a future powered by wind and solar power. Apple just joined them, announcing plans to power its ...

  • New coal report underscores the urgent need for global clean energy development

    The latest International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Medium-Term Coal Market Report 2012 re-confirms the dangerous path the world is on–a path of increasing dependence on coal, which carries serious environmental risks for people and the planet. According to ...

  • Is `clean` coal possible?

    VANCOUVER, April 18, 2007 (GLOBE-Net) - Coal is the world’s most commonly used fuel to produce electrical energy, and will continue as such for some time. Yet it is one of the ’dirtiest’ of all fossil fuels. It is a major source of toxic air pollutants and the leading source of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Many believe ’clean coal’ technologies will improve the energy efficiency of ...

  • Tips on Cleaning Your Solar Lights

    Solar lights are not a common part of life or lighting in many households but they are gaining a bit of ground. Most of them are used outdoors and this means that they will definitely get dirty after a while. These lights require regular maintenance but the fact that these lights are placed outside means that you will probably check on them less often. You will find no moving ...
