German plant combines wind, biogas and hydrogen storage - The Hydrogen Journal. German plant combines wind, biogas and hydrogen storage Production, Oct 02 2009 (The Hydrogen Journal) - German wind power producer Enertrag is building a power plant in the state of Brandenburg which incorporates wind turbines, a biogas unit and hydrogen storage, according to press reports from news service UPI.

The project has already got the attention of German chancellor Angela Merkel, who called the project "trend setting". It is located in Uckermark, the region she grew up in. There are three wind turbines with a total capacity of 6 mW; if their electricity cannot be immediately used, it is used to electrolyse water. The biogas plant produces biogas from maize supplied by 21 local farmers; this gas is then combined with the stored hydrogen to use in combined heat and power plants. It is due to start producing energy in early 2010. Proceedings of International Symposium on Building Partnerships between Citizens and Local Governments for Sustainable Lake Management.

Benefits of Renewable Energy Use. Renewable energy — wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, and biomass — provides substantial benefits for our climate, our health, and our economy: Each source of renewable energy has unique benefits and costs; this page explores the many benefits associated with these energy technologies.

For more information on their potential impacts — including effective solutions to mitigate or avoid them entirely — see The Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy Technologies. Little to No Global Warming Emissions Human activity is overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions, which trap heat, steadily drive up the planet’s temperature, and create significant and harmful impacts on our health, our environment, and our climate.

China's high-speed train crash: Interrogating the Party. Clean Energy 2010 Trending Up. Oregon and California, United States [] Last year around this time, clean tech research and publishing firm Clean Edge predicted we'd be talking about flat or even downward clean energy revenue trends in 2009.

Clean Energy 2010 Trending Up

However, the report the firm issued today, Clean Energy Trends 2010, shows that combined global revenue for three major clean-energy sectors –- solar photovoltaics (PV), wind power and biofuels -– grew by 11.4 percent over 2008, reaching $139.1 billion.

Disadvantages of Nuclear Energy Disadvantages of Solar Energy Disadvantages of Hydro Energy 1) Environmental, Dislocation and Tribal Rights - Large Dam construction especially in populated areas leads to massive Tribal Displacement,Loss of Livelihood and Religious Infringement as potentially sacred Land is occupied by the Government.2) Wildlife and Fishes get Affected - The Fishes are the most affected species from Dam Construction as the normal flow of the river is completely changed form its river character to a lake one.Submergence of land also leads to ecological destruction of the habitat of land based wildlife.3) Earthquake Vulnerability – Large Dam Construction has been linked to increased propensity of Earthquakes.Massive Earthquakes in China and Uttarakhand in India were linked to the building of Massive Dams in these countries4) Siltation When water flows it has the ability to transport particles heavier than itself downstream.

First Solar To Build 2-GW Solar Facility in China. Arizona, United States [] First Solar has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Chinese government to build a 2-gigawatt (GW) solar power plant in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, China.

First Solar To Build 2-GW Solar Facility in China

Pursuant to the MOU, the project will be built over a multi-year period. The project will operate under a feed-in-tariff which will guarantee the pricing of electricity produced by the power plant over a long-term period. Inside story: Hot rocks and high hopes. Investing in Geothermal Energy. In the shadows of wind and solar, another clean energy source is rapidly gaining steam and inciting equally lucrative profits.

Investing in Geothermal Energy

With about 10,500 MW installed to date, geothermal energy hasn't yet reached the scale of its cleantech cousins. Wind, for example, has ~142,000 MW of installed capacity worldwide; Solar has about 18,000 MW. But the wonders of geothermal energy are spreading far and wide. Its capacity is forecast to double in the next five years to ~21,000 MW. Our analysts have traveled the world over, dedicated to finding the best and most profitable investments in the global energy markets. And related stocks have been offering hefty returns to those willing to take a look at this unloved sector. Investing in Geothermal Energy Here's a chart that shows how geothermal has grown since the turn of the century. . . and how it's forecast to grow over the next decade: Everyone from Google to Middle Eastern oil sheiks are already lining up to get a piece of the imminent action.
