Today, climate change and energy scarcity is driving change, and mature information technology will be the enabling factor to get beyond the fossil-based energy. And, as in previous revolutions, social change will be significant, impacting everything from our daily lives to commerce and politics.
The recent growth in installed capacity along with the expiration of service contracts and the changing characteristic of project owners is pushing the wind service market forward.
We established the Guidance Green Committee to set in motion actions that will help us meet an ambitious yet concrete goal: to operate as an environmentally aware, carbon-neutral company by 2009.
Rainwater systems need not be complicated. They have been built and used for thousands of years.
Powered by cheap oil, the circulatory system of our economy has globalized, expanding populations, wealth, specialization beyond all historical measure. Yet the founding assumption of our success has failed and we are coasting on the momentum of cheap oil. Increasing supply of cheap oil peaked in May 2005. Since that peak gas prices and home foreclosures have skyrocketed as more and more people cannot afford their commute, food and house payments. The evaporation of Bear Stearns indicates the accelerating rate of consequences.
After only three to six weeks of continuous operation, the power costs associated with low-rated electric motors and drives can already have equalled their purchase price.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is creating a small wind turbine testing facility, and with the help from industry experts, is creating a testing standard for manufacturers so we can finally compare apples to apples.
It is in defining the brand and communicating it effectively that a company is able to distinguish itself in a very noisy and competitive marketplace.
Renewable energy will be a significant component of our future energy picture -- distributed generation from PVs to wind turbines and storage systems for electricity and cooling. These systems will increasingly be installed in our homes, together with smart electricity meters.
The clean energy sector powered ahead in 2007, according to analysts New Energy Finance. In spite of difficult conditions on the credit markets, the amount of new money invested in the sector grew to $117.2bn, up 35% from 2006's $86.5bn, and more than $20bn ahead of predictions.
The largest electric drive conference in the world
Here in the U.S., a comprehensive energy bill was just signed into law - we have included a great overview of what is included and how it affects the industry at the end of the article.
Leading by example, renewable energy firms are developing "green" or environmentally friendly employee benefits which align the core values of a CEO and culture of their organization with the core values of each employee.
HPCC's energy efficient applications, such as networking thermostats in homes and demand control, remote management of high power appliances, etc. ensure a more environmentally friendly future.
I think the most important fact to keep in mind is that tidal energy is more predictable than wind and look at how that is regarded. Tidal energy can also be used in desalination, hence providing clean energy and a clean water resource for developing nations.
