Renewable and Green Energy: The Future

Renewable and Green Energy: The Future
by Matt Harris

Are you looking for some inside information on energy? Here’s an up-to-date report from energy experts who should know.

Renewables like wind and solar received only $45 billion. Give or take a few billion, Obama had matched that by Day 29 of his administration. Renewable energy production should become a core strategy for rural revitalization in those regions the old economy left behind. Wind farms, solar farms, energy crops, methane conversion, bio-refineries, and land and forest carbon sequestration services all should become sources of income, jobs and property tax revenues in rural areas.

Solar photovoltaic systems are moving beyond residential applications to large, megawatt-scale projects for utility and industrial plants. Toshiba will secure orders for large solar power generation systems by drawing on its competitive advantages. Solar energy is created by heat and light radiated from the Sun. The majority of renewable energy sources come directly or in-directly from the sun.

Renewables are more expensive. But the question is, more expensive than what? Renewable energy, “has been shown to generate three to five times more jobs per dollar, or yuan, invested, than comparable investments in fossil fuels”. Similarly, recycling creates 10 times as much employment as dumping rubbish in landfills, while the International Labour Organisation reports that worldwide move to energy-efficient buildings could create “tens of millions of new jobs”.

You may not consider everything you just read to be crucial information about energy. But don’t be surprised if you find yourself recalling and using this very information in the next few days.

Renewables – with the exception of biofuels – will substantially reduce gasoline/diesel only when significant numbers of the automobiles are powered by electricity – probably 10-15 years at the earliest. This confusion of energies (“electrons versus liquids” as one pundit puts it) has muddied debate on energy issues for years.

Solar energy is used directly for heating and lighting of homes and other buildings, for electricy, hot water heating, solar cooling as well as a wide variety of commercial and industrial uses. Solar photovoltaic systems are moving beyond residential applications to large, megawatt-scale projects for utility and industrial plants. Toshiba will secure orders for large solar power generation systems by drawing on its competitive advantages. Solar power, wind power and hydroelectricity are all part of renewable energy.

Solar power heats homes heated homes and cools server farms. Utility companies use wind power to deliver power to customers and offer energy credit programs to reduce carbon footprints and fund renewable energy providers. Solar-generated electricity is often characterized by increased electricity distribution costs due to the presence of relatively small generation sites in close proximity to end-users, which contrasts with the common approach of building fewer large generation plants farther away. Solar energy is most used among all the renewable energy sources. Indeed solar energy has bright future, but behind all the brightness solar energy has dark side too.
