The Human Turbine

Posted by admin on April 8, 2013 in Renewable Energy with No Comments


In this beautiful film we follow the attempts to harness wind and solar energy for the benefit of the residents of the Palestinian village of Susia. And in the process we get to know extraordinary individuals from both sides of the conflict.

What was missing in Noam Dotan’s otherwise perfect life? What made him- and others, leave symbols of success and devote themselves to a Renewable Energy project in a Palestinian village? What is this dream, shared with the residents of Susia, which is today coming to fruition? They work through action, rather than through protest or demonstrations. Three years in the making, in joint meetings with local residents, they have created a renewable energy project at Susia. They have succeeded in supplying electricity for residents living in tents and caves, figuratively and literally lighting up their lives.

deutsch:
In diesem Film folgen wir dem Versuch, Wind-und Solarenergie zum Wohle der Bewohner des palästinensischen Dorfes Susia zu nutzen. In diesem Prozess lernen wir außergewöhnliche Individuen kennen.

Was fehlte im sonst so perfektes Leben von Noam Dotan? Warum wurde er zu einem Symbol des Erfolgs und warum widmete er sich einem Projekt für erneuerbare Energie in einem palästinensischen Dorf? Was ist das für ein Traum, der mit den Bewohnern von Susia geteilt wird und jetzt zum Tragen kommt? In drei Jahren wurde das Projekt für erneuerbare Energien in Susia gemeinsam mit den Anwohnern erstellt. Sie arbeiten durch Handeln, nicht durch Proteste oder Demonstrationen. Daraus resultierend wurde erfolgreich Strom in die Zelte und Höhlen der Bewohner geliefert und damit buchstäblich zum „Aufleuchten” ihres Lebens beigetragen.

Generating Your Own Energy Using Earth4energy System

Posted by admin on April 4, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 3 Comments


It is a fact that these days, generating your own power, like Earth4Energy is advocating, is necessary. That’s because almost all commodities and consumer products are affected by the rise of prices in oil in the global market. Electricity, among others, uses gasoline and coal to produce itself.

That is why there is the need to create your own power using renewable sources. That is something Earth4Energy can help you with.

What is Earth4Energy?

Earth4Energy is a manual which guides you through the creation and building of independent power systems like solar power and windmills. It has been started by Michael Harvey, a person who has had extensive experience in producing renewable energy. With an experience encompassing over 15 years, Michael decided to take energy production to the next level by introducing it to people all over the world.

Under the program, members can download an informative manual which contains all the data you will need to build your own solar or windmill power systems. There are descriptive instructions as well as diagrams that you can refer to during the production of your Renewable Energy source.

Advantages of Creating Your Own Power

Here are some of the benefits and advantages that generating your own power has over relying on local power distributors to produce your energy for you.

· You get to save up on electricity expenses. You don’t have to rely on the local power distributor to produce your electricity. You get it at your own capacity. Earth4Energy let’s you explore the possibilities of independently having your own power system. In this way, you will no longer be bothered of those humungous monthly bills which will find its way at your doorstep.

· Since Earth4Energy taps renewable and natural resources to produce electrical energy, there is virtually an unlimited supply power at your fingertips. The sun itself has the capacity to go on for a million of years, and the wind is always there. Having a solar panel or a windmill at your home ensures you an uninterrupted power supply.

· If you are thinking of unlimited and uninterrupted energy supply, Earth4Energy shows you some of the ways to harness unlimited power resources at the lesser possibility of power outage except of course when you do your maintenance. This will make your home feeling safe from power interruption which might be common considering that prices of oil is on the rise.

· And lastly, Earth4Energy is environment-friendly compared to using fossil fuels to produce energy. For example, coal, which is one of the many fossil fuels used to produce electricity, releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the air. This causes a disruption in the natural balance of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, thus contributing to Global Warming. Research done by the World Nuclear Association show that the bulk of the greenhouse gases produced by the world comes from burning fossil fuels like gas, oil and coal. Since Earth4Energy’s totally “green” power systems rely on harnessing renewable resources, you produce little to no greenhouse gas in the atmosphere.

Generating your own power is beneficial not only to the individual but also to everyone. Since there is no greenhouse gas produced from tapping the potential of renewable energy resources, you are actually saving the world from the harmful effects of global warming in your own little way. When you use the renewable power systems promoted by the earth4energy, you are also helping to increase your neighborhood’s awareness of the need to stop relying on fossil fuels and instead turn their attention to using the environment-friendly renewable power sources.

AllEarth Renewables Hosts Vt Rep Peter Welch Part 3

Posted by admin on April 3, 2013 in Renewable Energy with No Comments


David Blittersdorf and AllEarth Renewables welcomes Vt. Rep. Peter Welch to the Williston headquarters.

From the Burlington Free Press:

Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., chose Williston’s AllEarth Renewables as the venue Monday to announce bipartisan legislation that will make it easier to finance renewable energy projects in Vermont and throughout the country.

The Master Limited Partnership Parity Act, would allow renewable energy companies such as AllEarth Renewables to take advantage of a financing tool used in the energy sector known as master limited partnerships.

The partnerships have driven investment in oil, gas, and coal projects for nearly 30 years, but under current law, renewable energy projects can’t take advantage of master limited partnerships. Welch’s bill expands the definition of qualified projects to include renewable energy.

“If oil, gas and coal projects can take advantage of this important tool, there is no reason why renewable projects should be excluded,” Welch said in a prepared statement. “This is a simple, common sense idea that will drive investment in renewable energy projects for years to come.”

A master limited partnership is a business structure that is taxed as a partnership, but whose ownership interests are traded like corporate stock on a market. While profit from publicly traded C corporations is taxed at both the corporate level and the shareholder level, income from a master limited partnership is taxed only at the shareholder level, because it is treated as a partnership for tax purposes.

Renewable Energy – Modern Marvels – History Channel Documentary

Posted by admin on April 1, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 24 Comments


Take an in-depth look at the most proven and reliable sources: solar, wind, geothermal, biofuels, and tidal power. From the experimental to the tried-and-true, renewable energy sources are overflowing with potential… just waiting to be exploited on a massive scale.
Global problems require global solutions. Modern Marvels: Renewable Energy, a one-hour History Channel documentary, shows how the combined forces of wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, wave and tidal power are ready to move the world beyond oil, coal and other 19th Century technologies.
Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewable resources, with 10% of all energy from traditional biomass, mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 3% and are growing very rapidly. The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 19%, with 16% of electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.

The use of wind power is increasing at an annual rate of 20%, with a worldwide installed capacity of 238,000 megawatts (MW) at the end of 2011, and is widely used in Europe, Asia, and the United States. Since 2004, photovoltaics passed wind as the fastest growing energy source, and since 2007 has more than doubled every two years. At the end of 2011 the photovoltaic (PV) capacity worldwide was 67,000 MW, and PV power stations are popular in Germany and Italy. Solar thermal power stations operate in the USA and Spain, and the largest of these is the 354 MW SEGS power plant in the Mojave Desert. The world’s largest geothermal power installation is the Geysers in California, with a rated capacity of 750 MW. Brazil has one of the largest renewable energy programs in the world, involving production of ethanol fuel from sugarcane, and ethanol now provides 18% of the country’s automotive fuel. Ethanol fuel is also widely available in the USA.

While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas, where energy is often crucial in human development. As of 2011, small solar PV systems provide electricity to a few million households, and micro-hydro configured into mini-grids serves many more. Over 44 million households use biogas made in household-scale digesters for lighting and/or cooking, and more than 166 million households rely on a new generation of more-efficient biomass cookstoves. United Nations’ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said that renewable energy has the ability to lift the poorest nations to new levels of prosperity. Carbon neutral and negative fuels can store and transport renewable energy through existing natural gas pipelines and be used with existing transportation infrastructure, displacing fossil fuels, and reducing greenhouse gases.

Climate change concerns, coupled with high oil prices, peak oil, and increasing government support, are driving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization. New government spending, regulation and policies helped the industry weather the global financial crisis better than many other sectors. According to a 2011 projection by the International Energy Agency, solar power generators may produce most of the world’s electricity within 50 years, dramatically reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases that harm the environment.

Government Grants for Alternative Energy

Posted by admin on March 30, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 2 Comments


In his State of the Union Address for 2007, President George W. Bush called for a 22% increase in federal grants for research and development of alternative energy. However, in a speech he gave soon after, he said to those assembled, I recognize that there has been some interesting mixed signals when it comes to funding.

Where the mixed signals were coming from concerned the fact that at the same time the President was calling on more government backing for research and development, the NREL, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory of Golden, Colardo was laying off workers and contractors left and right.

Apparently, the Laboratory got the hint, because soon after the State of the Union Address, everyone was re-hired. The second speech of the President’s was actually given at the NREL. There is almost unanimous public support for the federal backing through research grants, tax breaks, and other financial incentives of research and development of alternative energy sources.

The NREL is the nation’s leading component of the National Bioenergy Center, a virtual center that has no central bricks and mortar office. The NREL’s raison d’etre is the advancing of the US Department of Energy’s and the United States’ alternative energy objectives.

The laboratory’s field researchers and staff scientists, in the words of Laboratory Director Dan Arvizu, support critical market objectives to accelerate research from scientific innovations to market-viable solutions. At the core of this strategic direction are NREL’s research and technology development areas.

These areas span from understanding renewable resources for energy, to the conversion of these resources to renewable electricity and fuels, and ultimately to the use of renewable electricity and fuels in homes, commercial buildings, and vehicles. The federally-backed Laboratory directly helps along the United States’ objectives for discovering renewable alternative fuels for powering our economy and our lifestyles.

The NREL is set up to have several areas of expertise in energy research and development. It spearheads research and development efforts into renewable sources of electricity; these would include such things as solar power, wind power, biomass power, and geothermal power.

It also spearheads research and development of renewable fuels for powering our vehicles such as biomass and biodiesel fuels and hydrogen fuel cells. Then, it seeks to develop plans for integrated system enginnering; this includes bringing alternative energy into play within buildings, electrical grids and delivery systems, and transportation infrastructures.

The Laboratory is also set up for strategic development and analysis of alternative energy objectives through the forces of economics, market analysis and planning, and alternative energy investment portfolios structurings.

The NREL is additionally equipped with a Technology Transfer Office. This Office supports laboratory scientists and engineers in the practical application of and ability to make a living from their expertise and the technologies they develop.

NREL’s research and development staff and its facilities are recognized for their remarkable prowess by private industry, which is reflected in the hundreds of collaborative projects and licensed technologies that the Laboratory now has with both public and private partners.

What is the most used renewable energy in the uk?

Posted by admin on March 28, 2013 in Renewable Energy with 3 Comments


In Science we found out that 75% of the UK’s energy was from non-renewable sources and 25% from renewable. We wrote down the order of Renewable Energy sources which we thought would contribute most out of Wind, Hydro (water waves), Solar and Nuclear and had to find out what was the correct answer. But I can’t find it anywhere, don’t know whether I am putting in the wrong things or what so could someone please help me. Hope this is clear and thank you in advance.

I think it’s nuclear. Might be wind though. It’s definitely not solar. Not enough sunlight in the UK for that.

Renewable energy resources — including water, wind, biomass, geothermal, and solar — are abundant and geographically diverse across the United States, and are used to generate electricity, provide thermal energy, fuel industrial processes, and produce transportation fuels. The deployment of renewable energy technologies has grown rapidly in recent years as their costs have decreased substantially and as the nation looks to meet growing demand, diversify its energy supply, promote energy security, and reduce carbon emissions.

Renewable electricity generation has grown 62 percent since 2001, and in 2011 represented 12.7 percent of total U.S. electricity generation. Furthermore, 12,956 megawatts of renewable energy capacity was installed in 2012, accounting for 49.1 percent of all new electrical generating capacity in the United States. The briefing provided an overview of renewable energy technologies, domestic and international deployment trends, and exciting market and economic conditions.
