Renewable Energy and the Energy Transition

Posted by admin on September 28, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 6 Comments


The world is driven by fossil fuels like oil and gas. This has some negative repercussions: Rising energy prices due to decreasing deposits, dependence on unstable oil and gas producing regimes and Global Warming.
It becomes clear, that a revolution in the way how we produce and use energy is necessary. Central to this energy transition are new technologies, which produce energy from renewable sources such as wind or sun.
With Germany as an example, this clip shows what renewable energies are and how they work as well as what the concept of energy transition means.

The clip is part of the WissensWerte Project of the german non-profit organization /e-politik.de/ e.V.

    one word , “Thorium”, molten salt nuclear reactor. Totally safe. No waste. Cannot be made into weapons. And cheap as dirt while giving hundreds of times more power for given amount then Uranium. Suppressed as hell. 5 tons can power the world for a year.

    I am supportive of …
    I am supportive of a wide mix of renewables. I will say that the most important factor is increased efficiency in appliances, homes etc. The key term is ephemeralization (producing more and more with less and less) which Bucky Fuller coined a long while ago. There is one type of nuclear energy worth checking out using Thorium in LFTR (liquid fluoride thorium reactor) rather than Uranium. I’m not sure if I totally endorse it yet but it looks promising so far.

    Magnets bottom line forget everything else magnets generate energy/ekectricity well known fact and it’s already patented and being sat on by by those who want to keep us enslaved.
