  • How sustainable is renewably powered desalination?

    Desalination technologies could help alleviate water shortages, but they need to have low environmental impact. A new life-cycle analysis of desalination options for water supply in off-grid areas indicates that a photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis system has the least environmental impact of the three technologies considered by the study. An increased use of technologies to remove salt ...

  • Seawater desalination a sustainable solution

  • Californian Conservationists against Desalination

    California is in the process of building a series of massive ocean desalination plants on a scale not seen before in the United States. Conservationists are however pushing back against the powerful interests who are convinced that California's looming water crisis will occur sooner rather than later, arguing that less damaging methods exist. Opponents argue the technology is too expensive and ...

  • Pakistan’s renewable energy awaits tapping

    Pakistan's vast renewable energy potential remains largely untapped for a mix of reasons, twin analyses show. The analyses, to be published in the June 2012 issue of Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, say exploiting Pakistan’s massive, unexploited renewable energy sources, particularly hydroelectric and solar, can help plug its widening energy deficit and improve livelihoods. ...
