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).

Renewable Energy in Iran

Posted by admin on July 28, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 12 Comments


Most of the world’s energy resources are being supplied by fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas. But the world’s dependence on fossil fuels is no good for several reasons.

One is the fact that coal, oil and gas will eventually run out. No one knows exactly when, but the US Department of Energy says we have roughly 104 years of fossil fuels left, and that’s if global consumption stays the same, which it probably won’t.

It’s been estimated that by the year 2020, world energy consumption will increase 50 percent. So it’s a matter of decades before the world runs out of its main source of fuel.

Another problem caused by burning up 350 quadrillion BTUs of fossil fuel a year, is the creation of a substantial amount of carbon dioxide, which is contributing to Global Warming and the subsequent melting of the ice-caps.

And of course air pollution threatens human health and that of the planet. The solution to all this is to find energy sources that are clean or green, and preferably won’t run out.

Green fuel is something the whole world knows it will have to invest in sooner or later. Iran is one of the nations trying to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.

Renewable Energy in Germany 2012

Posted by admin on July 22, 2012 in Renewable Energy with No Comments


Since the year 2000 Germany has developed from a pro-renewable energy country into a Renewable Energy powerhouse aiming for a complete transformation of its energy system.

In Germany most of the renewable energy capacity is owned by individuals or community power projects. In this grassroots energy revolution millions of households, villages and even entire regions have already declared their partial or total energy independence by becoming independent power producers. This is driven by the concept of energy autonomy, of not being dependent on multinational corporations or energy sources that destroy the world future generations have to life in. It was made possible by policy frameworks that enabled & encouraged people to invest in renewable energy sources and enforced market access by removing obstacles that prevent renewable energy projects around the world to this very day.

During the first half of the year solar power alone has produced more than 4% of the total power demand in Germany. While the share was rather small with about 1% in January it grew to more than 10% in May as the days got longer and warmer. Each kWh from solar power has been produced during peak-load hours, replacing coal, gas or oil-fired power stations.

Between January and June the combined power production of wind & solar energy was 5.5-7.5 TWh which represents 16-19% of the total power production every month. While wind power was the dominant source of variable renewable energy sources during the winter months, solar power took the lead in May & June 2012. Additionally biomass produced approximately 2.8 TWh and hydro power produced approximately 1.7 TWhs every month.

This video tries to show how this bottom up push toward a 100% renewable energy system looks like. Enjoy the video!

Renewable Energy in Germany | Fully Charged

Posted by admin on July 18, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 25 Comments


Robert Llewellyn provides insight on Renewable Energy in Germany.
LIKE Fully Charged on Facebook @ http://fb.me/FullyChargedShow
Fully Charged Podcast on iTunes @ http://bit.ly/fullchargediTunes

Robert first speaks with government official Dr. Silke Karcher, who heads the division ‘EU-Affairs and Bilateral Cooperation of Environment and Energy’. They discuss Germany’s future plans for energy, which involves the abandoning of nuclear energy and move towards wind, gas & solar. He then goes down to Leipzig to see a Juwi Energy Park, where a tour is given around a huge solar power plant by Sylvia Hamm. This produces a significant amount of energy for the German grid.

ABOUT FULLY CHARGED:
Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. During this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change how we think about energy consumption now. He will be taking a look at the newest electric cars available on the market [Volvo, Ford, Peugeot, Renault & Nissan] and also different forms of renewable energy [Wind and Solar].

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.
