Green Design Blog and Sustainable Living Information - IGreenSpot "Energy companies are no longer in control of energy sector" Green Village, Delft University There are many developments in the world today that have far more influence on the energy sector than the energy sector itself, says technology visionary Ad van Wijk in this exclusive interview with Energy Post. The Professor in “Future Energy Systems” at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands explains how LED lighting, a DC grid, fuel cell cars, the Internet of Things and 3D printing are upending our energy system as we know it. “The potential electricity production capacity of our cars – if they became fuel cell cars – is ten times that of our power plants worldwide.” “The energy sector will develop outside of energy companies,” predicts Ad van Wijk, Professor for Future Energy Systems at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Originally a physicist, with a PhD in wind energy and electricity production, Van Wijk went on to found consultancy Ecofys in 1984. Q: What is your vision for the future of our energy system? A: Yes. A: No.

Stortplaats van Dromen Energie haal je bij je eigen mensen - Duurzame Brabanders Uit Duurzame Brabanders Henk Daalder over 2035 en hoe we daar kunnen komen.Een toekomstvisie in het kader van het project Our Common Future 2.0 Duurzame energie is decentraal beschikbaar, dus anno 2035 doet iedereen zijn best die energie zo goed mogelijk op te vangen. Omdat er wind en zon in overvloed is, hebben veel burgers energie over. Duurzaam is simpel Net als het eigen woning bezit lagere woonkosten geeft, is een eigen stukje windpark garantie voor lagere energie kosten. Pakken wat je pakken kan Na het voorbeeld op Goeree Overflakkee gingen steeds meer regio's beseffen dat voor energie het motto is, "pakken wat je pakken kan" Voor windparken zorgde dat voor een regionale afweging hoeveel windmolens de regiobewoners over hadden voor hun eigen energie behoefte, en om te verkopen aan de stad. Als je vanaf 2035 terug kijkt naar 2010 dan blijkt dat Nederland wat later dan elders, een aantal paradigma verschuivingen heeft doorgemaakt. Andere paradigma verschuivingen

In 2003, President Bush announced a program called the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative (HFI) during his State of the Union Address. This initiative, supported by legislation in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT 2005) and the Advanced Energy Initiative of 2006, aims to develop hydrogen, fuel cell and infrastructure technologies to make fuel-cell vehicles practical and cost-effective by 2020. So what exactly is a fuel cell, anyway? In this article, we'll take a quick look at each of the existing or emerging fuel-cell technologies. If you want to be technical about it, a fuel cell is an electrochemical energy conversion device. The other electrochemical device that we are all familiar with is the battery. With a fuel cell, chemicals constantly flow into the cell so it never goes dead -- as long as there is a flow of chemicals into the cell, the electricity flows out of the cell. In the next section, we will look at the different types of fuel cells.

Waardekaart - These 14 Sleek Solar Homes Do More Than Produce Power They’re not simply places to live. They charge cars, grow food, collect water, and generate electricity during blackouts. These Dwell-like beauties might just make those with bigger homes a bit envious. The University at Buffalo home, for example, has an indoor greenhouse for growing food year-round. Orange County’s team features a vertical garden, surf shower and—for the boomerang generation—detached studio. The homes offer smart windows, accordion doors, and movable walls. Welcome to the Solar Decathlon 2015, a biennial U.S. These small homes—1,000 square feet or less—go well beyond solar technology to showcase not only smart design but also innovative ways to address drought or extreme weather. “It’s like the biggest jigsaw puzzle you’ve even seen,” Solar Decathlon director Richard King says of Clemson University’s home, made of thousands of pieces of flat-packed plywood that lock together like LEGO. Despite its wow factor, this competition has a cloudy future. What Happened?

Here's How Much Renewable Energy It Would Take to Power the Entire World The news: Here's how much solar energy technology it would take to power the entire world, based on data from a research thesis by Nadine May of the Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany. Image Credit: Nadine May The background: This map traces the ideal deployment of solar energy plants in the Sahara Desert to generate electrical power for the world's population. The intensity of the sunlight pressing down on the desert makes the area ideal for generating solar power. It might not look like a lot, but there are some major caveats here. Still, this map is a good illustration of how little space would be needed to power the entire planet. From the Land Art Generator Initiative, here's a more realistic depiction of what a distributed power network that could fill the world's needs would look like: You can see that the best areas for solar energy collection are the world's deserts. Why we should do it: There are numerous advantages to solar energy. Image Credit: CleanTechnica
