  • Domestic heating systems are more efficient with Scalewatcher

    In hard water areas plumbing, hot water systems and appliances quickly become encrusted with limescale resulting in increasing energy bills and the early renewal of boilers and appliances.  The award-winning, patented, Scalewatcher water-conditioner, from Scalewatcher North America, offers a simple and permanent solution to limescale thereby reducing energy bills and making heating systems ...

  • Haiti Sustainable Energy Roadmap. Harnessing Domestic Energy Resources to Build a Reliable, Affordable, and Climate - Compatible Electricity System

    Haiti’s electricity sector stands at a crossroads. Haiti depends on imported petroleum for 85% of its electricity generation, diverting 7 percent of its annual gross domestic product to importing fuel. Still, only 25% of the Haitian population has regular access to electricity, bringing barriers to advances in economic opportunity, health, education, and social equality. Yet, according to ...

  • Delivering on the Clean Energy Economy: The role of policy in developing successful domestic solar and wind industries

    The renewable energy industry is expanding to meet the needs of a large and growing global market for clean and secure energy. This growth is likely to continue, with electricity production from non-hydro renewable energy sources expected to grow more than eight-fold from 2009 to 2035, if countries implement their existing commitments, and draw nearly US$3 trillion in investment. In this ...

  • China must be encouraged to develop hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology using domestic resources

    This paper describes the current situation in China and the reasons for the rapidly increasing consumption of oil and the consequent search for new sources. Some suggestions are made for the rapid development and commercialisation of hydrogen energy systems in China using domestic resources. China could satisfy the energy demand with her domestic resources of renewable energies and depending on ...

  • Focus Bioenergy No 5 2004: Peat - a domestic fuel with advantages

    Total peat volume in Sweden is estimated to 100 billion m2. However, a large part of these assets are situated in wetlands that are important for biodiversity. The total climate impact of peat depends on emissions at combustion, but also on whether the extraction causes considerable natural flows of greenhouse gases from the peat land to cease. Often the total climate im-pact is well below that ...

  • Energy Security

    Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the ...

  • The regional analysis of energy consumption and energy resources in China

    In recent years, issues relating to Chinese energy supply and consumption have drawn worldwide attention. The Chinese government maintains that the solution to energy demand issues should be resolved by improving domestic supply; but the regional availability of energy is irregular across China. The regional consumption and composition of energy supply are analysed in this paper and suggestions ...

  • Did energy cause this mess?

    Much of today’s economic debate boils down to these questions: How did we get in this mess? And how do we get out? Two recent studies implicate the energy industry as a cause and a solution. While our economic tumble is clearly linked to an inflated housing market and overly-hedged financial products, we cannot discount pressure from high energy prices. In fact, 10 out of the 11 U.S. recessions ...

  • Household energy consumption in Switzerland

    Households consume more energy embodied in goods and services than they consume with energy carriers. Thus, energy assessments need to address both direct consumption and indirect consumption via commodities. This paper first presents a conceptual framework for describing and analysing the direct and indirect energy use of households. The framework is based on material flux analysis and ...

  • The Energy Revolution is Here

    We live in an exciting time. Yes, glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising, and in my new home in the Western United States, earlier snowmelts, longer summers, and hotter temperatures have made wildfires 400 percent more frequent. And yet, there are encouraging signs we are in the midst of an energy revolution that is sure to transform our climate, our economy, and our lives for the better. ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Cleaner Energy Future

    As renewable energy plays an increasingly important role in the world’s energy portfolio, the standards of ASTM International Committee E44 are helping to pave the way for innovation in clean energy sources. A growing population and improving living standards around the world are causing significant increases in energy demand and competition for fossil fuels. These escalating energy ...

  • Green Energy Fuel by Briquettes Machine

    Now a day’s demand of energy is increasing very rapidly but we have the limited sources to satisfy the energy requirements.  This energy demand is expected to grow almost by half over in the next two decades. So it is causing fear that our resources will run out by future. This will lead to shocking consequences of global economy.   On the other side, Due to the emission ...

  • Wind Energy Market in China 2014

    This latest market research report titled Wind Energy Market in China 2014 analyses how the renewable energy sector is gaining importance in China and how wind energy has become an indispensable part of this sector. With the gap in demand and supply of energy increasing at a steady pace, it has become necessary to look beyond conventional sources for generating energy. This has led to a shift in ...


  • Resolving the conflict between energy and the environment

    This article examines the forces responsible for America's ongoing energy crisis cycle (now over three decades old and still creating impasse), and suggests ways in which industry leaders, environmentalists, government, and the public can work together to eliminate the need for energy development. THE CHALLENGE FOR CORPORATIONS Underlying the progress that has been made in the past 30 years and ...

  • Worldwide energy savings, no magic required

    Is all this effort to save energy worth it? Consider this. Had we neglected energy efficiency from 1980 to 2010, worldwide energy use would be 35 percent higher. What does this mean? Look at the amount of energy used in the world’s two largest economies – the United States and China. That’s about how much energy the world saved. This comes from ...

  • Canada as an Energy Superpower- A Concept Revisited

    There have been many references over the past decade calling Canada an “energy superpower”. Apart from the political debate the term has engendered, many see the label more as a marketing ploy than as a statement of reality. There is no doubting Canada is a ‘super producer’ of energy, ranking among the five largest energy producers in the world, behind China, the United ...

  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Case study - Bank energy costs

    There are many pleasures of living and working in the Cayman Islands. However, paying utility bills for your business on Cayman isn’t one of them. The island territory has particularly high energy costs because Cayman has few domestic energy resources. Most electricity on Cayman is produced from imported diesel fuel, which is very expensive. As a result, businesses on Grand Cayman pay ...
