Ynet בישראל יש הרבה שמש, אז למה אין אנרגיה ירוקה? בישראל רק כ-3% מייצור החשמל הוא מאנרגיות מתחדשות - למרות שעל-פי דו"ח בינלאומי ישראל יכולה לייצר עד שנת 2050 - 100% מהאנרגיה שלה באמצעות אנרגיות מתחדשות - בדקנו מהם החסמים בדרך לייצור אנרגיה בדרך שאינה מזהמת: בישראל מי שרוצה להתקין מערכת סולארית על גג ביתו כדי לייצר חשמל צריך לפתוח תיק במס הכנסה, למרות שרשות המסים התחייבה להעניק פטור ממס הכנסה עד סוף שנת 2014.

Will this ‘fourth industrial revolution’ lead to an acceleration of the extractive, ‘linear’ economy of today, or will it enable the transition towards a society in which value creation is increasingly decoupled from finite resource consumption? A new report, Intelligent Assets: Unlocking the circular economy potential, finds that pairing circular economy principles with the information generated by intelligent devices creates a fertile ground for innovation that could enable this decoupling, and lead to broad social benefits. The report was produced by the World Economic Forum and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as part of Project MainStream, a global, multi-industry initiative that aims to accelerate business-driven innovations to help scale the circular economy. “Digital technologies are driving a profound transformation of our economy.

Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2013

Installed capacity continues to grow as solar prices drop 30-40%, new wind installations surge For only the second time since 2006, global investments in renewable energy in 2012 failed to top the year before, falling 12% mainly due to dramatically lower solar prices and weakened US and EU markets. There was a continuing upward trend in developing countries in 2012, with investments in the South topping $112 billion vs $132 billion in developed countries - a dramatic change from 2007, when developed economies invested 2.5 times more in renewables (excluding large hydro) than developing countries, a gap that has closed to just 18%.

The main issue holding back investment last year was instability in the policy regime for renewable energy in important developed-economy markets. The other major theme of 2012 was a further, significant reduction in the costs of solar photovoltaic technology. American Recycler News, Inc. - Home.

Environment Magazine - The Short List: The Most Effective Actions U.S. Households Can Take to Curb Climate Change

Gardner and Paul C. Stern (Updated on December 15, 2009) The U.S. Congress, presidential candidates, lobbyists, and political commentators have focused much of their attention lately on the need for policies to limit the United States’ contribution to climate change. Potential savings of this magnitude have existed for at least three decades.4 It is therefore reasonable to ask why the potential remains largely unfulfilled and what can be done to achieve it.
