Dutch engineers want to optimize these turbines and supply the station with more turbines. Enough for two thousand households

Last week. the tidal power station in the Dutch Eastern Scheldt commissioned.

From now, five water turbines supply power to the grid.

The turbines are generating enough electricity for over one thousand households.  Read More

Pros & Cons of (renewable) energy sources

Hydrogen energy much cheaper dan fossil energy

Hydrogen energy for example, seems to be much cheaper and cleaner than fossil energy

The last few years, more and more researchers discover new approaches, technics and improvements to all kind of renewable energy sources.

Even in combining important research areas like solar energy and biomass conversion.

Renewables are important to stop the climate change. Read More

Tidal Wave Energy, Pros & Cons

Harnessing tidal power has positive impact on climate change because it produces no greenhouse gas emissions.

Tidal wave energy is among the key sources of renewable energy available on our planet. 

Wave energy is as source of power that comes from the endless march of the waves as they roll into the shore then back out again.

Humans harness this power along the coastal regions of the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. The best thing about wave energy is that it will never run out.  Read More

Gas from Algae, Pros & Cons

This German building has a “bio-adaptive” facade that is claimed to be a first for using algae within its glass louvers in order to generate energy, and provide shade, to a working building.

Researchers think algae might be part of the answer to slowing greenhouse gas emissions at power plants, and ultimately climate change.

Not only for cars, algae can also heath buildings like this German Office

To create the algae façade, the building is covered in bio-reactive “louvers” that enclose the algae. Additionally, the bio-reactors trap the heat energy created by the algae, which can then be harvested and used to power the building.

Solar Power Much Cheaper In 2014

solar power, grid, renewables, California, climate change

We help California meet its mandate to generate 33 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020

The prices of Solar Power Systems dropped by 9 to 12 percent in 2014.

Prices are going down for years now but this is spectacular.

Reason of the drop of prices are: competition of cours, more efficient installations and operations, scaling of the productions and sharp biddings. Read More
