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
For example: Algae-based biofuel absorbs carbon dioxide as it grows. This biomass energy source wastes CO2 and the wastewater can be used as nutrients. Algae give higher energy per-acre than other bio-fuels and can be grown on land unsuitable for other types of agriculture. Let’s have a look at the potentials of Biomass Power.
Nuclear Fusion is inspired by the sun. Is this the holy grail at the end of the energy process?
Lockheed Martin believesfusion energyis the future. In their opinion fusion energy is the ultimate form of renewable power. For scientists and engineers the sun is their inspiration because it is the biggest natural fusion reactor we know.
With Citadel BioCat+ there is up to 17% less input and the energy output almost doubles compared with conventional biomass power plants
We are currently in a revolution. No revolution for power, but more of a – relatively speaking – sudden change of human tools, means and opportunities.
Scientists agree that we are currently in the tail of the latter. Especially visionaries and futurists dare to go further; we’re already in the next phase, or at least in the transition phase, where nanotechnology, network theory and biotechnology are major drivers. Read More
Ring Receiver Reactor Recuperator produces synthetic fuels
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have developed a prototype machine that utilizes the sun’s energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into the molecular building blocks that can be utilized as transportation fuels. If researchers can make this device produce twice the energy generated by the natural process of photosynthesis, it will do great service to environment. It will pave the way to recycle CO2. Read More
