How Tomorrow Moves, Again
Energy Crisis? Where? Not in the U.S.! If so, we would have never adopted and promoted a transportation policy that is extravagantly wasteful of our expensive, environmentally deleterious and supposedly limited supply of traditional fossil fuel resources.What Will Oil Field Workers Do in Wake of Renewable Energy Job Growth?
If the world manages to cut CO2 emissions to zero by 2070, as insisted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, to avoid a temperature rise of over 2 degrees Celsius, an extraordinary number of oil field workers need to transition to renewable energy jobs.Privatization and Liberalization of the Downstream Electricity Market
Who is responsible for an energy policy? There are a number of reasons why the responsibility for (of) an energy policy is fundamentally that of the government. In historical terms, most electricity and gas supply industries (as opposed to production systems) were formerly under the complete ownership and control of governments. In countries like the United States and Germany where the facilities were typically privately owned, they were still operated in accordance with directions given by the government regulator. There is little or no difference between the operation of a state monopoly and the operation of a private sector monopoly under direct governmental regulation.Investment in Renewable Energy: The Panacea to Drive the New Nigeria
With a new government in place, millions of Nigerians are curious to understand how President Muhammadu Buhari plans to translate the energy-poverty ravaging the country into an energy-potential for sustainable economic growth. Administrations before now have been unable to harness the various energy resources in the country to generate sufficient energy; thus, resulting to incessant power failure for many citizens who live on less than N200 per day, yet have to seek alternative reliance on diesel/fuel generators.Fossil Fuel Generators Versus Green Energy
Environment is one of the key concerns of governments and policy makers from all over the world. One of the main factors behind environment related pollution is the process by which power is produced. In this article, the author has tried to rationally address the debate of clean energy versus conventional energy, especially in the context of power backup equipment and mechanisms.Combined Heat and Power – A Consideration for Property Owners and Landlords
As every property manager and landlord faces the mounting pressures of rising electricity rates and an increasingly unreliable transmission and distribution system, we need to ensure that our clients – the tenants – have access to both affordable sources of power and reliable and resilient power. Simply put that they have access to the power and heat they need when they need it. In many cases our infrastructure is built upon a boiler based system for heat and connections to the electrical grid (with potentially a back-up generator) for power.Falling Oil Prices Seen As Disastrous For Some African Countries While Some Will Benefit
African countries are among the most at risk from the recent fall in oil prices according to the IMF report released earlier this year. These countries depend on oil exports as they account for about 50% GDP for Angola, Gabon and the Republic of the Congo. The government revenues in these countries account for about 75% on the oil export industry. One report stated the oil price crash could affect African economics harsher than Ebola.The Benefits Of Renewable Energy: What Do You Know?
For as long as can be remembered, people everywhere have been encouraged to ‘go green’ but is it easily done? For many the notion of going green means changing a number of things from switching to organic produce, shopping for products with renewable packaging and of course opting to power their homes with renewable energy. These changes are often considered too costly and inconvenient for the average home owner after-all who has the time to find an organic only supermarket and renewable energy certainly isn’t affordable is it?Thinking Yourself Under the Table
Imagine being flat on your back under a table in a lecture room or office – what do you see? Maybe a rough wood surface? This is quite interesting as the pattern is like some unique tree fingerprint.Energy and Sanitation in France
Any discussion of energy and sanitation in France inevitably leads to the production of electricity from various sources and the attempts by national and local authorities to satisfy public demand for water and sewage facilities. At present the country depends heavily on energy production from nuclear power while water and sewage constantly occupy the minds and deliberations of the authorities’ and the people. Energy, water and sewage The importance of energy, water and sewage for the health of a country’s population requires constant vigilance to ensure that the health and livelihood of the population is not…
