  • Market Development for Renewable Energy

    Transmission and distribution loss estimates for India are as high as 30-50%, and many communities need improved quality and more reliable power. Increasing the share of distributed generation in the total electricity mix will have a significant impact on both clean energy supply, as well as emissions reductions. In addition, locating power generation closer to the consumer reduces technical ...

  • Renewable energy and sustainable development in Hungary

    This paper presents an overview of the use of renewable energy in Hungary. It analyses the role of renewables in the sustainable development of the country and in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Although Hungary is rich in geothermal sources, the use of renewable energy sources is not economically viable in the country compared with traditional energy sources. In Hungary, only biomass ...

  • Following the fuel: How portable biomass energy generation may help rural communities

    The forests that surround many of California’s mountain communities tend to have an abundance of woody biomass and a pressing need for thinning to reduce fire danger. Revenue from selling forest residues to biomass power plants could help to support fuel reduction activities, but in many cases the nearest plant is so far away that hauling costs are prohibitive. The remoteness of such ...

  • Development by synergising renewable energy with social services

    This paper explains the idea of a synergism between cutting–edge renewable energy technologies and social services. This is designed to create 'free' services for the public. These 'free' services could occur if 'intensive' renewable energy generation technologies permitted the physical structures housing social services to sell megawatts of electricity. This would act as the income necessary to ...

  • The Developing Role of Permanent Magnets in Renewable Energy

    The developing role of Permanent Magnets in renewable energy production along with the environmental protection is a very worthy topic. An upright permanent magnet should produce a high magnetic field with a near to the ground mass, and should be constant against the inspirations which would demagnetize it. The desirable properties of such magnets are usually indicated in expressions of the ...

  • Biosolids ban struck down

    In 1994, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD) bought a 4,700-acre farm (called Green Acres Farm) in southwest Kern County for the purpose of land applying biosolids from its 11 wastewater treatment plants. LACSD land applied 800 wet tons/day at this site for several years. In 2006, Kern County voters passed Measure E on the ballot with 83 percent approval. This measure banned ...

Rated number 19, Poland has a diverse and growing renewable energy sector. The U.S. Commercial Service concluded in 2007: “Poland has very favorable technical and economical factors for renewable energy.  Poland has begun to experience ...


  • Renewable energy technologies in Nepal

    Nepal, one of the least-developed countries, has a per capita energy consumption of about 336 kilograms of oil equivalent (kgoe), which is much below the world average of 1,474 kgoe. Around 85.27% of the total energy consumption comes from traditional energy resources and only 0.48% from renewable sources. About 40% of the total population has access to electricity. This 40% uses 33% from the ...
