France decides in favour of energy turnaround. On 22 July 2015, the French parliament passed an energy law that will de facto initiate a 'small energy turnaround' in France.

France decides in favour of energy turnaround

It has the following goals: lower energy consumption, lower carbon dioxide emissions, reduction of nuclear electricity production, and more electricity from renewable sources. The path to achieve these goals, however, remains unclear. With only a few months left before the World Climate Summit in Paris, France's Environment Minister Ségolène Royal would like to take a leading role in climate protection in Europe. An energy law that she introduced and was vigorously debated ( (link is external)) was passed by the French Parliament yesterday.

According to the minister, the law is the 'most ambitious in Europe'. The most important, previously unthinkable, point of the new law: France will transition away from nuclear power and towards renewable energy. By 2050, carbon dioxide emissions are to be reduced by 75% compared to the reference year 1990. Seminar 1 October: Capacity Mechanisms, the Energy Turnaround and State Aid Law. Home Page EniDay. What is hydroelectric energy? Hydroelectric power offers the ability to create electricity without carbon emissions, and it is more reliable than wind or solar power.

What is hydroelectric energy?

However, hydroelectric plants usually rely on dams to provide a steady stream of water, and that construction can have an environmental impact of its own. A hydroelectric plant can disrupt the natural migration of fish and other animals that depend on the waterway, and the dam often creates a large reservoir that can displace animals and people. Hydroelectric dams can be enormous structures, and their construction can completely alter the hydrologic face of an entire region. Also, when a dam fails, it can present a major threat to those living downstream. Since a hydroelectric plant traps a large volume of water and allows it to pass through at a reduced rate, a sudden release of stored water can create dangerous floods.

Photo Gallery: Germany's Eco-Snafu. What exactly is Germany′s ′Energiewende′? Germany's ambitions to completely restructure its energy sector have been talked about so much that the very word which stands for the current policy change - "Energiewende" - has even made it into the English language, albeit it not everywhere in English-speaking communities.

What exactly is Germany′s ′Energiewende′?

But what exactly does this term mean? In a nutshell, it describes the country's politically supervised shift in direction from nuclear and fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy. This idea of a changing power path helps explain the literal translation: "energy turn. " The government says this transition will reduce security hazards and ensure Germany creates a greater share of its own power in future. Germany's energy grid needs to be adapted to new challenges Yet this concept is by no means a recent addition to the German dictionary.

But nowadays, the term is primarily associated with a fundamental policy shift in the country after the 2011 nuclear plant disaster in Fukushima, Japan. Technology for the energy turnaround. Energy from many sources The transition to renewable sources of energy not only means new sources of power.

Technology for the energy turnaround

New ways of generating power are also emerging, with a move away from large power plants and toward many different small ones. Wind and solar parks, cogeneration units, heat pumps, and biogas plants are now also feeding power into public grids. Homeowners with photovoltaic arrays can thus become “prosumers”: they consume and generate power at the same time. One of the biggest challenges of this development is controlling the large number of small power stations in a manner that ensures the constant flow of power.
