Kenya is expected to grow by 5% this year, with a boosted power supply expected to attract an increased pool of investors into the East African country
One of the most green countries of Africa is Morocco. The country has few hydrocarbon reserves but it makes up for it in wind and sun. The new wind farm installation in Tarfaya spans 10,000 hectares. When fully operational in October this year, the 131 turbines will generate up to 300 megawatts of power. Read More
An atlas of pollution: the world in carbon dioxide emissions
Worldwide, the cement sector has been very active in reducing its emissions from cement production.
On three levels:
Through the combination of these efforts, the emissions per ton of cement have been reduced by 16% from the 1990 levels of 750 kg CO2/ ton of cement. Good news for CO2 emissions, the greenhouse gas and climate change. Read More
From wind-energy to gas. It’s a great opportunity for the Dutch
The Netherlands had always a lot of gas in the North East but the gas is decreasing. Since a few years, renewable energy is growing fast with solar panels and wind parks. But storage of electricity remains a question.
ECN examined the role of power-to-gas in the Dutch energy system of the future.
Power-to-Gas (P2G) is a technique in which electrical energy is converted by electrolysis gas. A way to store renewable energy.
Power generating turbines with running under water on the flow of the water. That Crowd Energy achieved through a campaign on IndieGoGo. The project was detailed to the folks at Livescience, with the goal being to create turbines deep in the ocean that use currents to generate power. Crowd Energy was founded by Todd Janca, who came up with the idea and discussed it in detail recently. Read More
Solar road: A nationwide system could produce more clean renewable energy than a country uses as a whole
Imagine this … Would you like to drive your electric car on roads that don’t have potholes, don’t need re-construction every year, roads that will ‘self clean’ snow or ice on them in the winter, and have illuminated lines that you can see? Solar roadways will be able to accomplish all of this with existing technology.
About 1 million households in Ghana wil profit from energy out of the sea in the future.
Ghana harnesses tidal energy to generate 1,000MW of power from the Ada Esuary. Therefore Swede Energy has signed an agreement with TC Energy Ltd in Ghana to jointly develop the largest wave power project in the world. Read More
Five times more than is needed right now. Worldwide we need cooperation because it is a technology challenge to explore this green power efficient. But if we can we have enough energy to cover the global demand for energy.
The environment is high on China’s political agenda. It’s all about ‘war on water pollution’.
The environment is high on China’s political agenda. It’s all about ‘war on pollution’. The message is clear: policies to tackle pollution and water scarcity will ‘spill over’ to impact industry. Financial analysts are trying to quantify the financial implications of these regulations. On the flip-side, there is increased interest in the water & wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy sectors. Read More
