Watch this: Hybrid Solar / Wind Energy Tower

renewable energy, hybrid energy tower Mexico

This revolutionary wind/solar energy tower is 2,235 ft high and 1,200 ft width.

Mexico is making history with this hybrid solar & wind energy tower. Have you ever seen this?

The simplicity of solar/wind energy’s revolutionary solution lies in its ability to harness the natural power of a downdraft created when water is introduced to hot dry air within the confines of the Company’s patented tower structure.

Hydrogen Power, Pros & Cons

renewables, climate change, Geothermal energy, wave power, energy market, pros and cons of Geothermal, Solar Power, Wind Power, Thermal Power, hydro

Hydrogen fuel cells are highly efficient and less dangerous than gasoline

Hydrogen is the cleanest energy source we know of. In a electric fuel cell electricity is created by combining hydrogen and oxygen.

Without combustion, the only byproducts are water and heath. 

Although hydrogen can be produced from diverse renewable resources already, the main challenge is cost. Most of the cost of creating hydrogen by electrolysis, comes from buying power from the grid. So new research is good for the future of affordable hydrogen.  Read More

More renewable energy and reduce costs

Less than 10% of rural populations in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity

Less than 10% of rural populations in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity

Much has changed over the last ten years or so since the renewable power boom began. At the start of the boom, renewable power costs were very expensive and high quality developers were hard to find. Nowadays good core development expertise is available and capital costs have dropped dramatically. Read More

Brazilian boost renewable energy

Renewable energy for Brazil

Brazil started with Solar Power by building World Cup stadiums with solar panels

Today Brazil starts it first national renewable energy auction. The special category Solar Power may may spur as much as $1 billion dollar investment and gives a boost to the Brazilian solar market. That’s what Bloomberg reports today.

The Brazil Electric Energy Trading Board may buy 2 gigawatts of renewable energy, and 500 megawatts must come from solar power, according to 3 analysts.  Read More

New Energy needs a long term scope because climate change is a long-term issue

Top 100 U.S. Organizations Using Renewable Energy

Climate change is a long-term issue

Bill Gates and Jigar Shah started an excellent discussion – and good science should spark debate. But, when determining policies pertaining to emissions reductions – for the electricity or any other sector – the scope needs to be long term because climate change is a long-term issue. Read More

AREF renewable energy fund

Africa launches a renewable energy fund to develop projects across sub-Sahara. 100 million dollars has already been resiled for the African Renewable Energy Fund and will probably be doubled. 

The money will support small and medium-sized independent power producers with grid-tied projects of 5-50 megawatts in size: small hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and waste gas.

Solar, wind, hydro, biomass

China sets goals for new energy resources up to 2017

China speeds up solar power development, targeting a more than tripling of installed capacity to 70 gigawatts by 2017 to cut its reliance on coal.The goal would be double a previous target set for 2015, according to a statement posted today on the National Development and Reform Commission’s website. China also plans to have 150 gigawatts of installed wind power capacity by 2017, 11 gigawatts of biomass power and 330 gigawatts of hydro power. Read More
