  • Wind can help solve energy crisis

    Since it became a viable energy resource around 20 years ago, wind power has emerged as a leading renewable technology. At the end of 2006 the worldwide capacity of all wind turbines was close to 75 gigawatts, which represents around one percent of all electricity use in the world. Three quarters of that wind power usage is currently based in Europe. The Danes lead the way with nearly 20 percent ...

  • Harnessing energy from the oceans

    Forever moving - our restless oceans have enough energy to power the world. As long as the Earth turns and the moon keeps its appointed cycle, the oceans will absorb and dissipate vast amounts of kinetic energy - a renewable energy resource of enormous potential. But harnessing this resource has proven more difficult than first thought. In this the latest installment of the GLOBE-Net Series on ...
