10 Amazing Wind Turbines

10 WIND TURBINE DESIGNS

The Magenn Air Rotor System (MARS) is the next generation of wind turbines with cost and performance advantages over existing systems. Follow this link for details.

This Top 10 amazing Wind Turbines is for shore where ‘Art meets Technology’.

These wind turbines are beautiful and practical works of art that pay back daily. For households, offices, industrie.

Placed at free windy places it’s a great contribution to the urban smart grid. Read More

Green power generation from Urine

Green electricity from Urine. Light reduces the risk in refugee camps

The “pee-power” will be a big advantage for refugee camps. Most of the refugees don’t have any electricity: that leads to unsafe situations. Light will reduces the risk of abuse.

University of Bristol researchers are testing a new way to generate energy: generating electricity from urine.

How does this technique work exactly and what are its benefits? Read More

Scenarios: A green revolution has winners and losers

List of oil producing countries in the world

A green revolution will ensure winners and losers. The coffers of the oil-producing countries will become discharged and that leads to riots and instability.

Germany and Denmark are Europe’s big winners in this green revolution. Why?

  • Since 20 years, they closed all the nuclear power and coal plants
  • Roofs without solar panels are a rarity
  • Windmills seems to be the new high voltage towers: ugly but indispensable
  • Efficient appliances and lighting hardly costs for electricity are very low
  • Heating the house becomes from the heat of the earth
  • Electricity excess is stored in batteries with ammonia, as big as garage

The SET-plan is about maximizing the potential of the innovations that already are happening by better linking it together. More cross-border, cross-sector integration.

Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete told the audience in his speech last week that Europe needs a more targeted,integrated, and transparent approach to solve the Energy demands of the future. 

Cañete: A rapidly changing energy and climate landscape requires realignment in the way we work.

His SET-Plan is based on three principles: Read More

Is hydrogen the technology of the future?

Hydrogen, renewables, pros and cons, CO2, storage, power, green electricity, battery, climate change, nuclear

Fuel cells (and perhaps other technologies which use hydrogen) fill certain niches in which batteries cannot compete favorably and the opposite is also true.

When I first realized that the world is transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy, I fell in love with hydrogen technologies.

Splitting the most naturally abundant compound in the world, H2O, would be the ideal thing to fuel the future. However, there are really dangerous details to how this water must be split and the energy requirement is quite ridiculous.
