China’s Huge Solar Farms Changes The Worlds Energy

Share

ShareFly over “Datong County”, a region in northern China, and you’ll see two giant pandas. One is waving at you. They are made of thousands of solar panels. Together, and with the other adjacent panels included, they form a 100-megawatt farm covering 248 acres. It’s actually a relatively small solar park by China’s standards – butRead More



Green Energy Revolution Can’t Meet America’s Energy Demands

Share

Introduction A growing chorus of voices is exhorting the public, as well as government policymakers, to embrace the necessity—indeed, the inevitability—of society’s transition to a “new energy economy.” (See Peak Hydrocarbons Just Around the Corner.) Advocates claim that rapid technological changes are becoming so disruptive and renewable energy is becoming so cheap and so fast…



10 Alternative Energy Ideas To Save Humanity

Share

ShareMaking a dent in the climate crisis is going to take more than solar panels and recycled toilet paper. Scientists are finding ever more creative ways (pig pee! DIY tornadoes! mini nuclear reactors!) to clean up the Earth Beaming Electricity from Space The Vision Launch giant solar panels into orbit and send limitless clean energy backRead More



The World’s Largest Floating Wind Farm Is Already On Its Way

Share

ShareFor nearly 30 years, the world has been collecting renewable wind energy by installing giant wind turbines off shorelines, anchored to the sea floor. That surplus of wind power helps turn wind turbines. Converting wind’s kinetic energy into a renewable source of electrical energy for homes and business. Now, a new kind of floating wind farmRead More







Biden Wants Extra Incentive For Union-Built Electric Cars—Which Would Exclude Teslas

Share

SharePresident Joe Biden’s plan to accelerate U.S. sales of electric cars and trucks to 50% of all new vehicle purchases by 2030 could include more generous customer incentives of as much as $12,500. But those made by Tesla, the biggest seller of battery-powered autos, wouldn’t qualify for that maximum amount as its U.S. assembly facilitiesRead More
