  • Breakthrough in renewable energy - VPRO documentary - 2016

    It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

The thoughts about moving away from fossil fuels and using a different source of power for gasoline and diesel cars have been around for a while. But until recently they were treated with a great deal of skepticism. But after the release and the developing success story of Tesla motors the future of alternative fuels is not as grim as it was before. As a result, we can see very good and promising prototypes and even production models of cars that use electricity and hydrogen fuel cell technology. So we decided to review some of them: Pininfarina H2 Speed: www.pininfarina.com/en/h2_speed/h2_speed.htm Quant FE: www.nanoflowcell.com/solutions/quant-fe Quantino: www.nanoflowcell.com/solutions/quantino Toyota Mirai: ssl.toyota.com/mirai/fcv.html Nio EP9: www.nio.io/ep9 Fisker EMotion: henrikfisker.org/products/production-cars/fisker-emotion LeEco LeSee Pro: www.lesee.leeco.com/ Renault Trezor: www.renault.co.uk/vehicles/concept-cars/trezor-concept.html

Get more info here about the research conducted in the Sustainable Energy Planning Group at Aalborg University: http://www.EnergyPLAN.eu -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Smart Energy Systems: 100% Renewable Energy at a National Level (Full Version) Denmark has decided to become independent from fossil fuels. For the sake of the climate, the economy, and in order to ensure security of energy supply. This film shows how this will happen based on research conducted at Aalborg University (http://www.smartenergysystems.eu). At present wind and solar energy already delivers a good share of Denmark's energy, but renewable energy is a major challenge for an energy system that is built upon fossil fuels. Energy production from wind and solar fluctuates - it fluctuates as the wind blows. So what renewables are reliable when there is no sun or wind energy available? Another challenge is the transport sector. How do we create an energy system of renewable energy, where also cars, ships and planes can operate on fossil-free energy? A great example of an energy system that will ensure Denmark a 100% renewable energy system is called: Smart Energy Systems - a coherent, fossil-free energy system that will create lots of new jobs and green energy for the Danes, both in terms of electricity, heat and transport.

And hydroelectricity is the king of renewable energy, making up 70% of the renewable energy produced around the world. And for good reason. They’re kind-of the perfect energy source. It’s stable, base-load energy that’s flexible. If you need more electricity, just release more water into the turbines. They’re cheap to run and maintain once they’re built and they’re 95% efficient at generating energy, compared to 33% for coal and 15% for solar. And of course they create no pollutants, consume no fuel, and the water never stops flowing. The Three Gorges Dam in China is actually the largest energy plant of any kind in the world and generates just under a hundred terawatt hours per year all by itself. So, hydro is kinda perfect. The problem is, it’s location-specific. If you don’t live by a large river, you’re not going to be able to use it. Luckily, most cities were built near rivers, but not all rivers are large and powerful enough to make enough difference to justify the cost of building them. Which is also a problem. While they produce free energy for decades and even centuries after they’re built, hydroelectric dams are huge engineering projects that cost tons of money up front. (By the way, the whole ‘expensive at first but then free for decades’ thing is a common theme amongst renewable energies) They also create reservoirs and lakes that flood a lot of land whose landowners may not want to give up. There are some concerns about the disruption of fish habitats, but… that’s not at the top if my list of concerns. So each hydroelectric plant is a birds nest of legal and construction challenges to overcome but even so, the number of hydropower plants are expected to double by 2050. Another base load energy source is geothermal energy. Geothermal uses the heat from natural geologic hotspots to turn turbines that generate electricity. Iceland and the Philippines are major producers of geothermal power, which can be used in huge commercial plants to power entire cities or just pump the heat directly into homes for heating. It’s a consistent flow of energy so it never runs out, but the efficiency isn’t great. Only an average of 12% efficiency. Which really just means it will take longer for the investment to build it to pay off because once it’s turned on, it’s just free energy basically. And the efficiency is getting better, with newer plants getting over 20%. https://www.geothermal-energy.org/pdf/IGAstandard/NZGW/2012/46654final00097.pdf Even in Iceland, which is covered in hotspots and has a very progressive attitude toward clean energy, it only accounts for 30% of their energy production. So it’s not likely to become a major source of energy worldwide And as if all that wasn’t enough of a bummer, it also turns out that geothermal can produce greenhouse gasses. Geologic hotspots churn up all kinds of stuff from inside the Earth, stuff like sulfur dioxide and silica emissions, and heavy metals like mercury, arsenic and boron. These can get in the reservoirs and eventually the water supply. Oh, and by the way, one of the methods they use to open up geothermal wells is hydraulic fracking. Yeah. That hydraulic fracking. Let’s drill down and inject extremely high pressure water and other chemicals… Right over a volcano. What could go wrong? Earthquakes. That’s what. Just like fracking for natural gas has caused earthquakes in Oklahoma... (zoom in) Earthquakes. In Oklahoma. A geothermal well that was drilled in Switzerland set off an earthquake that measured a 3.4 on the Richter scale. (pained) Geothermal… Why do you hurt me so? I used to think geothermal was really cool. Used to. So am I wrong about this? Do you have experience using geothermal, or working in hydro plants? Are my numbers garbage? Let me know in the comments The next video in this series will focus on biomass energy and harnessing the motion of the ocean to make power.

Hello World’s Ashlee Vance paid a recent visit to Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik to see the next part of the green energy story. He found a start-up called Icewind that is building a new type of funky wind turbine designed to perform well in low-wind conditions but also to slow itself down in high-winds, preventing it from catching on fire or ripping apart.

This whirlpool turbine can power dozens of homes, providing energy 24 hours a dayBelgian company Turbulent have possibly come up with a solution to generate energy for small-scale rural areas. Using the power of water, the turbine can be installed to most river and canals, using the current to produce energy - which the creators claim is enough to power up to 60 homes. Could this be the future for all energy production? ______________________________ Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/sai FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/techinsider TWITTER: https://twitter.com/techinsider INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/tech_insider/

It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

Is green energy, particularly wind and solar energy, the solution to our climate and energy problems? Or should we be relying on things like natural gas, nuclear energy, and even coal for our energy needs and environmental obligations? Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress explains.

There’s a lot of sun and a lot of wind. They’re free. They’re clean. No CO2 emissions. So, what’s the problem? Why do solar and wind combined provide less than 2% of the world’s energy? To answer these questions, we need to understand what makes energy, or anything else for that matter, cheap and plentiful. For something to be cheap and plentiful, every part of the process to produce it, including every input that goes into it, must be cheap and plentiful. Yes, the sun is free. Yes, wind is free. But the process of turning sunlight and wind into useable energy on a mass scale is far from free. In fact, compared to the other sources of energy -- fossil fuels, nuclear power, and hydroelectric power, solar and wind power are very expensive. The basic problem is that sunlight and wind as energy sources are both weak (the more technical term is dilute) and unreliable (the more technical term is intermittent). It takes a lot of resources to collect and concentrate them, and even more resources to make them available on-demand. These are called the diluteness problem and the intermittency problem. The diluteness problem is that, unlike coal or oil, the sun and the wind don’t deliver concentrated energy -- which means you need a lot of additional materials to produce a unit of energy. For solar power, such materials can include highly purified silicon, phosphorus, boron, and a dozen other complex compounds like titanium dioxide. All these materials have to be mined, refined and/or manufactured in order to make solar panels. Those industrial processes take a lot of energy. For wind, needed materials include high-performance compounds for turbine blades and the rare-earth metal neodymium for lightweight, specialty magnets, as well as the steel and concrete necessary to build structures -- thousands of them -- as tall as skyscrapers. And as big a problem as diluteness is, it’s nothing compared to the intermittency problem. This isn’t exactly a news flash, but the sun doesn’t shine all the time. And the wind doesn’t blow all the time. The only way for solar and wind to be truly useful would be if we could store them so that they would be available when we needed them. You can store oil in a tank. Where do you store solar or wind energy? No such mass-storage system exists. Which is why, in the entire world, there is not one real or proposed independent, freestanding solar or wind power plant. All of them require backup. And guess what the go-to back-up is: fossil fuel. Here’s what solar and wind electricity look like in Germany, which is the world’s leader in “renewables”. The word erratic leaps to mind. Wind is constantly varying, sometimes disappearing completely. And solar produces little in the winter months when Germany most needs energy.
