Nombre de ses livres se sont révélés prophétiques comme La fin du travail (1996) ou L’âge de l’accès (2000). Son dernier livre, la Troisième révolution industrielle (voir également le site dédié), est certainement l’un de ses plus ambitieux, car il nous livre – rien de moins – qu’un futur de rechange par rapport à celui qu’on abandonne. La seconde révolution industrielle (1880-2006) n’est plus notre futur Rifkin dresse un double constat. L’autre constat repose bien sûr sur les conséquences dramatiques qu’a engendrées cette seconde révolution industrielle sur la santé de notre biosphère. Rifkin tient un propos véhément. Notre futur, c’est d’appliquer le modèle distribué de l’internet à l’énergie – et à la société tout entière 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Greenpeace launches power-to-gas. Power storage German power provider Greenpeace Energy is constructing a unit that will convert excess wind power into hydrogen, which will then be sold to the German natural gas grid.

Greenpeace launches power-to-gas

What do you do when you have too much wind power? The problem increasingly affects various parts of northern Germany, where the grid sometimes cannot absorb all of the wind power being generated. Now, German power provider Greenpeace Energy is ramping up a process known as "power to gas. " Here, excess electricity is used to convert water into hydrogen by means of electrolysis. The benefits of this approach are that the infrastructure – the natural gas pipelines – is already in place and provides more storage capacity than is needed, even to store excess solar power seasonally from the summer for the winter.

This is the message given in the European Commission’s October 2012 communication on industrial policy (COM(2012) 582 final), which seeks to reverse the declining role of the manufacturing industry, and increase its share of European Union GDP from about 16 percent currently to above 20 percent. Historical evidence suggests that the goal is unlikely to be achieved.

Manufacturing’s share of GDP has decreased around the world over the last 30 years. This Blueprint therefore takes a different approach. But this splitting up of production is not driving the apparent manufacturing decline.Participation in global value chains within Europe is strongly EU-oriented with a central position for the EU15 and in particular Germany in EU manufacturing. Capital-intensive manufacturing faces both urgent challenges and medium-term challenges. Guntram Wolff, Director of Bruegel. Progress in the implementation of Articles 4.8 and 4.9 of the Convention - Modelling tools to assess the impact of the implementation of response measures. The National Energy Modelling System (NEMS) is a computer-based, energy-economy modelling system of U.S. energy markets.

Progress in the implementation of Articles 4.8 and 4.9 of the Convention - Modelling tools to assess the impact of the implementation of response measures

NEMS forecasts the production, imports, conversion, consumption, and prices of energy. The inputs to the model include assumptions on macroeconomic and financial factors, world energy markets, resource availability and costs, behavioural and technological choice criteria, cost and performance characteristics of energy technologies, and demographics. The model can then be used to look at a range of response measures but is particularly well-suited to assessing technological solutions.

La Chine devient le 1er consommateur mondial d’énergie – pour combien de temps ?

La Chine vient de supplanter les Etats-Unis à la tête des plus gros consommateurs mondiaux d'énergie, révèle le rapport statistique annuel de BP [pdf]. La consommation énergétique mondiale, tirée avant tout par les pays émergents (Chine, Inde, Brésil, etc.), a cru de 5,6 % l'an dernier. Mining the Truth on Coal Supplies. This story is part of a special series that explores energy issues.

No matter how bad coal might be for the planet, the conventional wisdom is that there is so much of it underground that the world’s leading fuel for electricity will continue to dominate the energy scene unless global action is taken on climate change. But what if conventional wisdom is wrong? A new study seeks to shake up the assumption that use of coal, the most carbon-intensive fossil fuel, is bound to continue its inexorable rise.
