  • New energy economy emerging in the United States

    As fossil fuel prices rise, as oil insecurity deepens, and as concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging in the United States. The old energy economy, fueled by oil, coal, and natural gas, is being replaced by one powered by wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The transition is moving at a pace and on a scale that we could not have ...

  • A BME solution of the stochastic three-dimensional Laplace equation representing a geothermal field subject to site-specific information

    This work develops a model of the geothermal field in the Nea Kessani region (Greece) by means of the Bayesian maximum entropy (BME) method, which describes the temperature variations across space in the underground geological formations. The geothermal field is formed by a thermal reservoir consisting of arcosic sandstones. The temperature distribution vs depth was first investigated by the ...

  • The right mix: the Philippines achieving its renewable energy goals

    The global energy system is undergoing a transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. There are clear signs that the pace of change is accelerating. 2009 was the second year in a row that more money was invested worldwide in renewable electricity generation projects than in fossil fuel-powered plants, according to data published by the United Nations. Developing countries, especially in ...

  • As Global Demand for Electricity Grows, Geothermal Energy Heats Up

    January 9, 2017 — At 2:46 p.m. local time on Friday, March 11, 2011, Japan was rocked by the largest earthquake ever to strike its shores. The 9.1 magnitude quake triggered a devastating tsunami that killed more than 15,000 people. It also took out the back-up emergency generators that cooled the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant complex, causing a series of ...

  • Renewable energy and energy efficiency in Bulgaria

    The interest in renewable energy sources (RESs) utilisation and energy efficiency improvement programmes in Bulgaria reflects the changes in the field of energy policy worldwide and in Europe. Now energy management becomes a great problem of inner policy of Bulgarian government. In the last few years there has been a growing attention to the RESs applications. Bulgaria has one of Southern ...

  • Fossil Fuel Development in the Arctic is a Bad Investment

    Even master chess players can miss a great move when they have been primed to look for a different one. To explore this phenomenon, researchers tracked master chess players’ eye movements when given chessboards with different layouts. With the first board, players could reach checkmate using a familiar move. When given the second chessboard, the players' eyes kept looking at the pieces ...

  • Infrastructural and policy challenges with achieving fossil fuels free energy supply: the case of the City of Leeuwarden

    The city council of Leeuwarden has an ambitious goal - to make the city's overall energy supply fully independent from fossil fuels by the year 2020. All energy required by the city should be derived either from sun, wind, geothermal sources and/or locally produced 'green' gas. To achieve this goal the city has initiated the programme 'Slim with Water and Energy', focusing on four themes: energy ...

  • Building New Industries and Creating New Jobs in a Plan B Economy

    Building a new economy, one that can sustain economic progress, involves phasing out old industries, restructuring existing ones, and creating new ones. This new economy will be powered by renewable sources of energy, will have a more diverse transport system--relying more on rail, buses, and bicycles, and less on cars--and will recycle everything. For example, coal use will be phased out, ...
