George Shultz ‘Walks The Talk’ On Clean Energy

Posted by admin on July 15, 2012 in Clean Energy with 7 Comments


For George Shultz, former U.S. secretary of state, Clean Energy is more than a policy issue. It’s personal. That’s one reason he drives an all-electric Nissan Leaf powered by solar panels on his home rooftop. “You’ve got to walk the talk,” says Shultz, who leads the Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy at Stanford’s Hoover Institution. He is particularly concerned about the impact of Global Warming on the lives of his great-grandchildren. “I’ve got to do what I can to see that they have a decent world,” he says.

Europe Commits to Renewable Energy

Stability and growth of the renewable energy market in Europe were on the agenda at an energy conference in Brussels. European policymakers joined forces with other major stakeholders to chart the way forward for energy policy in the EU.

European Union policymakers join forces with business leaders and representatives of civil society at an energy conference in Brussels to chart the way forward for energy policy in the EU.

Friday’s conference, called “Stability and Growth: Towards a Renewable European Energy Market” focused on tackling two major energy issues facing the EU.

One is how to ensure that the energy targets for the year 2020 are met in the current economic climate in Europe. The second is to draft targets for the year 2030.

[Günther Oettinger, EU Commissioner for Energy]:
“So, are we on the right track to achieve our 2020 renewables target and to continue bringing about the large volume of renewables that the Roadmap says is necessary?”

One of the 2020 targets is that 20-percent of all energy in Europe should come from renewable sources, including solar power, wind and biomass among others.

The push to de-carbonize the energy sector and the problem of growing dependency on fossil fuel imports were issues highlighted at the conference.

The European Union now sends 300 billion euros overseas every year to import fossil fuel—money that could be kept in Europe if renewable energy sources could be effectively developed.

From a political perspective, dependence on foreign fossil fuels brings about instability and political dependence: on Russia for gas or Iran and Arab countries for oil.

Some imports of fossil fuels also help prop up non-democratic regimes with a history of human rights violations—another reason to do something about changing the status quo.

From an environmental perspective, renewable energy is considered “clean” energy.

However, development of Renewable Energy system requires considerable investment and innovation.

And the conference highlighted a need for more involvement in these areas.

[Anni Podimata, Vice-President, European Parliament]:
“Firstly, energy infrastructure investments are crucial for the integration of the internal energy market, even though the majority of the required investments will come from the private sector, we should ensure that the public funding is available – when it is mostly needed, especially in the current era of crisis.”

The EU’s renewable energy policy started in 1997. European industry now leads in the development of global renewable energy technology and employs one-and-a-half million people.

Some countries such as Austria, Finland and Latvia, obtain one-third of their energy from renewable sources. Sweden—as much as half.

Governments vs. Markets: Julian Morris on Environmental Protection

Posted by admin on May 29, 2012 in Environment Protection with 25 Comments


Which does a better job of protecting the environment: governments or markets?

Reason Foundation’s Vice President of Research Julian Morris spoke at Reason Foundation’s annual Reason Weekend and challenged the idea that regulations and energy subsidies will save us from environmental disasters. In fact, they help cause them.

When people are driven by profits and protected by property rights, Morris argues, environmentally friendly products will develop naturally.

Morris is the author of dozens of scholarly articles on issues ranging from the morality of free trade to the relationship between institutions, economic development and environmental protection.

Approximately 28 minutes.

Why Congress Needs to Renew Clean Energy Subsidies

Posted by admin on May 29, 2012 in Clean Energy with 5 Comments


President Obama is slated to visit TPI Composites on Thursday, a wind turbine blade manufacturer in Newton, Iowa, where he will urge Congress to extend two key Renewable Energy tax credits — the Production Tax Credit for wind and a Clean Energy manufacturing credit.

Wind energy provides thousands of jobs in Iowa, like this one of a turbine maintenance worker in Franklin County (LINK: http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2011/12/wind_energy_heartland.html). The Center for American Progress travelled to Iowa to talk to experts and officials about how uncertain federal policy is hurting the wind industry.
