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 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
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 costswere 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
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
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

As China struggles with it’s industrial emissions, the concept of a new eco-city is a possible model for it’s sustainable development.
Last year the academy of social science, launched the 2014 ecological city ‘the greenwork’, with technical solutions to get cities green. One of the sustainable solutions is ‘The Phoenix Towers’ in Wuhan. Read More
The 250-MW Bujagali hydropower plant in Uganda demonstrates that large-scale private power infrastructure projects can be built successfully in Africa. This is the first power project built in Uganda to secure private financing.
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
