Renewable Energy : Not Investing-  The Reality of  success 4

Renewable Energy : Let’s look at some of the effects of humanity’s inability to adapt to the use of Renewable Energy, so far. Poor air quality can kill. Ozone pollution can cause respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion, which results in innumerable deaths each year.   Water pollution is purely genocidal.…

Geothermal Energy and its no1 Limitless power 5

What is Geothermal Energy? Geothermal energy is the thermal energy that is generated by, and stored within, the Earth itself. In fact, it is the primary source of energy that determines the mean temperature of all matter on Earth. The innermost core of the Earth is a fairly heated, but solid, ball of iron and…

What Can Wave Energy Do? 7

What is Wave Energy? Wave energy is the harvesting of the naturally occurring kinetic energy produced by the impact of land and water. Like tidal power, this source of energy is not in as wide use as it really should be, but the concept has been around since the 1890s.   The most effective example…

Solar Panels

What is Solar energy ? Quite simply, Solar energy is the conversion of sunlight into electricity. It can happen in two main different ways; directly, using what is called Photovoltaics; or, indirectly, using what is called Concentrated Solar energy. Photovoltaics converts light into an electrical current using certain light sensitive chemicals that produce voltage when…

How Can We Harness the Power of Rainwater? 8

What is Rainwater Power? Imagine the average house or apartment, which is most always equipped with a rain gutter for water runoff. Now, consider turning the rainwater that runs into that gutter into electricity. Assume that when it is raining, water is collected in the gutter that surrounds a building’s roof. Now, instead of funnelling…

What is Wind Power? Wind power is, very easily, available by the Earth’s natural airflow. Turbines primarily produce this energy through mechanical power generators that produce electricity. Wind power is a great alternative to burning fossil fuels. It is plentiful, accessible globally, pollutant free and can operate without the use of water. It also needs…

Solar energy Tree Providing Solution to Urban Space Restrictions 9

Image Credit: Creative Commons/Barnwal Urban Solar energy Solutions This remarkable Solar energy Tree produces the very same quantity of electrical energy as a traditional system. Yet it works in a much smaller sized space.  Isn’t that interesting? Well, the Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-CMERI) developed this advancement and Union Minister for Science & Technology…
