Israeli Solar Power: Renewable Light To The Nations

Posted by admin on August 5, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 15 Comments

A cutting edge Israeli company demonstrates the reality of solar power on a large scale. Yishai Fleisher, JewishPress.com Managing Editor, visits Arava Power in Kibbutz Ketura 50 km north of Eilat in Southern Israel. He interviews Yosef Abramowitz (President of Arava Power). Arava Power has built Israel’s first commercial solar field which is also the first solar power farm array in the Middle East. This solar field will soon be ramping up to a gigantic 40 megawatts of power which will meet a full third of the power needs of the city of Eilat. Eilat uses 120 megawatts at peak energy (all air conditioners on in every house and every hotel).

Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy

Posted by admin on April 28, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 25 Comments

http://www.ted.com What’s the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage — so we can have power on tap even when the sun’s not out and the wind’s not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store Renewable Energy. As he says: “We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap.”
