Geothermal Power Approaches 12,000 Megawatts Worldwide

by Earth Policy Institute  (Aug. 27, 2014)

In 2013, world geothermal electricity-generating capacity grew 3 percent to top 11,700 megawatts across 24 countries. Although some other renewable energy technologies are seeing much faster growth—wind power has expanded 21 percent per year since 2008, for example, while solar power has grown at a blistering 53 percent annual ...

India’s Potential in Harnessing the Alternate Energy Sources

by Jay Khodiyar Machine Tools  (Sep. 1, 2014)

Long queues for gasoline, high prices and shortage of gasoline are the signs which show that how natural resources are on the verge of depletion. This shows that it is high time for us to view how to utilize natural resources. India is mainly depended on import of petroleum products for its energy requirements.

China may be ready to kick coal habit

by Climate News Network  (Sep. 5, 2014)

There are still doubts. The statistics might be proved wrong. But it looks as if China might be starting to wean itself off its coal consumption habit. China produces and consumes nearly as much coal as the rest of the world combined. Coal, the most polluting of all energy sources, has powered the growth of China’s flyaway economy. But as ...

How to plan hydropower stations for the future

by SciDev.Net  (Sep. 3, 2014)

The hydropower plants of tomorrow won’t only produce energy. Constructing dams will also provide new drinking water sources, irrigation for crops, and new waterways for transport. In the words of most of the scientists here at World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden, they will be ‘multipurpose’. This means that each plant ...

Welcome to Net-Zero

by ASTM International  (Aug. 29, 2014)

For most people (and for most homes) the likelihood of going through a whole year spending next to nothing on energy is a goal that seems far out of reach. In fact, it is only relatively recently that insulation technologies, coupled with cutting-edge renewable energy tools, have made the concept of a net-zero energy use home anything more than a ...

The Emerging Power of Microgrids

by GLOBE Foundation  (Jul. 3, 2014)

Over many decades, the centralized power grid — a one-way flow of electricity, generated by large, remote power plants and distributed over miles of transmission lines to homes and businesses — succeeded in delivering electricity across continents to billions. But in recent years the system’s shortcomings have become increasingly ...

Bright future of solar lighting

by Greenshine New Energy LLC  (Sep. 16, 2014)

Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent ...

Sunbeams from Space Mirrors in dawn-dusk Polar Orbit feeding Solar fields on the ground for Low Cost Electricity

by JX Crystals  (Jul. 15, 2014)

A Space Power Satellite capable of providing solar electric power economically for 24 hours per day has been a dream for decades. However, the SPS concept is very complex since it assumes multiple energy conversion steps and includes specially constructed ground microwave receiver stations. The 5 km by 15 km Integrated Symmetric Concentrator SPS ...
