Advances in Aeration Turbine Technology

The future of aeration technology lies in really dynamic solutions, such as turbines. They are in jet planes and even cars, hydro power plants, steam turbines, gas turbines and as wind turbines. They convert electricity to various kinds of flow and vice versa. Surely this is where the action is, so work should be done […]

Renewable Energy and Sustainability: Global Perspectives

Renewable energy resources come to us courtesy of natural reserves that can be recharged on a human timescale. They include energy obtained from the sun, wind, biomass, geothermal warmth, rain, tides, and waves. They are healthier and sustainable as compared to non-renewable resources, such as energy produced from coal, oil, gas, and nuclear sources. Sustainability […]

Renewable Energy for Beginners

Renewable energy is the energy that is harnessed from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on human timescale, such as solar, wind, biomass, tidal waves and geothermal heat. Renewable energy systems are rapidly becoming more efficient and cheaper. The importance of solar energy was recognized as early as 1911 in the Scientific American article which […]

A Glance at Future Renewable Energy Systems

We have a lot of renewable energy sources in the past 50 years because of the hard work of scientists. But the problem is that these are very expensive and their productivity depends on the weather. Scientists are now trying to find out how alternate methods can be found. The source of energy that will supply […]

Tips for Applying for a Renewable Energy Degree

With a rapid technological progress that we are witnessing today, the skills in renewable energy are among the most wanted. As “The Guardian,” states, in 2016 the solar power alone grew by 50%. Such a growing demand offers new jobs and requires professionals on different levels, from production to the finance. Taking this into account, […]

How Weather Affects Solar Panel Efficiency

Solar panels are an inevitable roof addition to install in order to cut electricity costs and contribute to the environment. Technology has became so advanced that panels nowadays can be almost unnoticeable or become a unique addition to your roofing system. More and more people decide to put them on their property motivated by all […]

Cleantech Investment in Germany

Germany is one of the world’s third largest market for renewable energy investment which totalled $15.2 billion in 2016. Germany spent 25 billion euros ($26 billion) on renewable energy in 2016, most of which—23 billion euros— consumers paid through a surcharge on their electricity bills. Germany’s plan to phase out all 17 of its nuclear […]

Alternative Energy and the Energy Crisis

Everyone knows that there is a limited supply of fossil fuel left on Earth and this may pose a big problem in the future. This issue is not only a major concern for the big corporations and businesses, but is also affecting the masses too. With the recent energy price hike, people are now looking […]

Renewable Energy Investment in South Africa

South Africa faces the dual challenge of pursuing economic growth and protecting the environment. South Africa has set up the institutional infrastructure for renewable energy projects which are beginning to pay dividends in the form of big investments from foreign as well as local investors and development of commercial solar, wind and biomass energy projects.
