Cost Benefit Analysis of Biogas As An United States Alternative Energy Resource

This paper discusses biogas energy and its viability as an energy resource. Emphasis is added on landfill and agricultural methane bio-gasses and the process by which they are transferred into the electrical grid. The paper concludes with an analysis of the environmental and economic costs and benefits of biogas, and the feasibility of biogas a competing energy resource in the United States.

Where Is Humanity Going With Nuclear Energy and Power?

The other day, I was speaking to an acquaintance about knowledge and wisdom, obviously they aren’t the same. Gandhi made mention in a quote of the seven deadly sins, that “Knowledge without Character” was a real problem, and I might ask, what if we substituted Character with Wisdom? Would such a quote still be apropos? I think so, but I’d like to explore this a bit further if I might, because knowledge, experience, observations, education, and wisdom are all different. My acquaintance and I have not completed our dialogue on this topic, but I believe it is relevant to think on it a bit.

Case Study in Tidal Energy – Analyzing The Costs and Benefits of an Emerging Industry

Harnessing energy from the tide is a thriving industry that provides power to communities around the world. Yet other renewable solar and wind energies are receiving the most attention from international investors as well as the media. It is important to consider all energy options, such as the surprising potential of developing tidal energy.

How Do Renewable Energy Plants Work

The world relies heavily on a steady supply of fossil fuels like oil, natural gas as well as coal for its energy, and these unfortunately are dwindling resources; they are non-renewable and require costly explorations. The price of oil is also dependent on certain factors, and political strife creates an energy crises and escalating oil prices. Renewable energy is not vulnerable to political events but can be locally produced.

The Truth About Solar Panels

Solar panels are far more popular than they once were, but they still only account for a tiny proportion of the world’s energy production. When you consider that they really don’t cause any environmental damage and can eventually provide households with free energy, it seems strange that more homeowners aren’t considering solar panel installation.

The Future of Particle Accelerators and the Higgs Particle

In light of the recent, very exciting discovery of the famed (at least in particle physics’ circles) Higgs particle, it should probably come as no surprise that physicists are already planning an even more powerful one yet. Just recently, the large particle accelerator LHC – the most powerful that has been built to date – wowed the physics community with the incredibly high energy levels it achieved to coax the manifestation of the Higgs Boson. Indeed; this new particle accelerator was actually planned long before the engineers had even finished building the Large Hadron Collider, giving you an idea of…
