Produces More Electricity Than Any Other Source For 3 Months, & Breaks 6 TWh in January Clean Power Published on February 6th, 2013 | by Zachary Shahan Denmark, the US, and Germany aren’t the only countries breaking wind power records these days. Spain is also a notable leader seeing strong wind power growth. In fact, it just saw its wind farms produce more electricity than any other source for a 3-month time period, for the first time ever. “Since Nov. 1, wind has been the top technology in the electrical system,” the Spanish Wind Energy Association (SWEA) was quoted as writing on its blog.
Energy Efficiency Saving energy in buildings Buildings account for 40 per cent of the global energy consumption and nearly the same share of CO2 emissions.Consequently, reducing the energy consumption of buildings will be a key priority for any country or community striving to save money and reduce CO2 emissions. With today’s existing technologies, it is possible to reduce energy consumption in buildings by at least 50 per cent, and possibly as much as 80 per cent. These huge savings can be made quite easily with simple measures such as energy-efficient windows, insulation materials, heat regulators, ventilation systems and lighting,just to mention a few.
San Francisco Green Film Festival INSPIRED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT Have you seen a festival film and started thinking “What can I do?” Then check out our ‘Take Action!’ guides: Find out how you can get involved and have an impact on some of the most pressing environmental issues. 4th SAN FRANCISCO GREEN FILM FESTIVAL THEMES Budget Measures 2011-12 - Budget Paper No. 2 - Part 2: Expense Measures - Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency functions — additional funding The Government will provide $28.1 million over five years to the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency to assist in the delivery of its energy efficiency functions, which were transferred from the then Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts as part of the machinery of government changes in March 2010. This funding includes delivery of the COAG National Strategy on Energy Efficiency and a range of energy efficiency programs. Green Loans program — extension and assistance for assessors
Native Clean Energy Native Clean Energy (NCE) has been investing money, energy and time into researching new energy technologies as it relates to increasing the efficiency of our planet’s current Fossil Fuel based transportation and power production capacities. We are also delving deep into the research and development of what Nikola Tesla, Viktor Schauberger, John Keely, Gabriel Kron, Nathan Stubblefield, Ed Leedskalnin, Buckminster Fuller and many others were in search of, zero point energy, radiant energy, etheric energy, how to tap into the underlying unified field that holds everything together, the energy that spins our earth, the perpetual energy of the Moon pulling on our planets waters. There are many energies acting up on our Planet that we have yet to fully understand. We have traveled all across North America in our search to find and develop the cleanest source of sustainable/renewable energy on the planet.
Energy Department Announces $10 Million for Innovative, Energy-Saving Lighting R&D Technologies As part of the Obama Administration’s effort to cut energy waste and double energy productivity by 2030, the Energy Department today announced $10 million to support research, development and manufacturing of solid-state lighting (SSL) technologies across the country. This funding will accelerate the development of high-quality light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) products with the potential to reduce lighting energy use for American families and businesses by one half and enhance U.S. global competitiveness. During the past 10 years, the Department has helped accelerate SSL technology deployment, yielding an estimated energy savings of $1.8 billion in 2013. Solid-state lighting technologies, which include both LED and organic light emitting diode technologies, have the potential to save Americans $26 billion a year in energy costs by 2030.
Study traces ecological collapse over 6,000 years of Egyptian history Depictions of animals in ancient Egyptian artifacts have helped scientists assemble a detailed record of the large mammals that lived in the Nile Valley over the past 6,000 years. A new analysis of this record shows that species extinctions, probably caused by a drying climate and growing human population in the region, have made the ecosystem progressively less stable. The study, published September 8 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), found that local extinctions of mammal species led to a steady decline in the stability of the animal communities in the Nile Valley.
This Entire Building Is Powered By Its Algae-Filled Walls Algae may still be years away as a source for road and jet fuel. But could it power whole buildings before long? If you think that’s crazy, then look at this recently completed five-story residential building in Hamburg.
