  • Hydro the most likely clean energy to develop worldwide, says Bourne Energy

    The world's energy appetite is growing fast, and energy production capacity is being rapidly devoured. A fundamental shift in global demand has begun accompanied by a slow supply response, given the long lead-time required to rebuild surplus fossil fuel capacity. While the major renewables, solar and wind power, are growing at double digits they still make up less than 1% of the country’s total ...

  • Planning for Life On or Off the Grid: Part One

    "Off the grid." Those three words typically conjure up the image of mountain men, tucked into the wilderness with long beards and scraggly hair, or communes out in the country with farmland and flowers galore, but with renewable energy becoming more and more accessible, your image of "off the grid," just may change. Neighborhoods are dotted with solar-paneled houses and wind systems, and taking ...

  • Tailor renewable energies to local culture

    To make an impact, small-scale renewable energy systems must fit social expectations and cultural norms, argues Benjamin K. Sovacool. In 2009, 1.4 billion people lacked access to electricity — 85 per cent of them in rural areas. By 2030, 1.2 billion are set to remain off-grid, while 2.8 billion will rely on traditional biomass. The ...

  • Managing the imbalance between energy supply and demand

    Renewable energy may help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but it presents a problem for electricity suppliers: how to meet peak demand levels with increasing reliance on intermittent energy sources. A new analysis explores options for storage that would facilitate use of renewable energy, either in isolated locations or as part of the electricity grid. Electricity currently accounts for only 12 ...

  • As a land thaws, so do Greenland`s aspirations for independence

    (AXcess News) NUUK, Greenland - Judging by flags alone, you'd never guess that Nuuk is part of the Kingdom of Denmark.
