Is Hydro Power Practical?

Hydropower, which uses moving water to generate energy, is one of the oldest power-producing technologies. Today, it accounts for about 16 percent of the electricity produced around the globe and 85 percent of all renewable energy. As the world aims to get more of its energy from renewable resources, hydropower has again become a big part of the conversation. Some have raised concerns over its usefulness and sustainability, while others say it’s crucial for the future of energy and the40

Oil well

Oil industry boom-and-bust visualised

With the world’s energy demands that are needed to power transportation, it is reported that we are exhausting the earth’s supply of oil. In fact, recent findings from the International Energy Agency (IEA) unveiled the world will face oil shortages far sooner than anticipated. Therefore understanding the volume and speed of consumption is critical. This interactive animation allows people to get a better sense of how much oil is left in the top 10 countries with the most oil reserves,40

Access to electricity through a decentralized solution in areas off the grid

Four years ago, India faced the most infamous grid collapse in the entire history. Different versions of cause and effect have been proposed to understand and inform the affected public. However, it is true and evident that India has been struggling with increasing energy demand in terms of capacity as well as operational challenges. Does it not obviously bring us to a grave question- has the infrastructure reached its tipping point and a new infrastructure is required or is there40

Biofuel- Answer to Energy Problems

Rudolf diesel once very well said “My Engine today is running on Diesel but a day will come when all the fossil fuels will be over, but my engine will continue to run”. In today’s era when there is an increasing demand for fossil fuels but the level of fossil fuel is depleting at a very fast rate it is important to find an alternative fuel, which is sustainable, efficient and renewable in nature. Bio-fuel is one such alternative on40

Solar Power: Sustainable solution to India’s Energy Needs

Solar Photovoltaic is a proven technology with more than 1,75,000 MW of installed capacity over the world. Europe is a pioneer and leader in solar power installations with countries like Germany, Italy, France and United Kingdom at the forefront. These countries promoted solar PV since last decade by providing attractive tariffs for sale of solar energy. At the end of the 2014 total installed capacity in Europe stands at about 90,000 MW. Solar energy is important source of energy with40

Wind energy installations across states

Top five states in India with highest wind electricity generation

India is blessed with various renewable energy sources. Wind energy is a prominent renewable energy source in India. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has already estimated 103 GW* of wind energy potential. Government of India is looking at renewable energy as a way to achieve energy security and to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions happening from the electricity sector. Therefore, renewable energy development is high on government agenda. Recently, India set 60 GW of wind capacity addition target40

5 Things You Should Know Before Installing Solar Panels

It’s a big step… going solar. I mean you start to become conscious of your energy use and everything changes. The way you feel about using energy changes. I mean not only does it give you a good feeling for not having to pay those blasted tyrant power companies wads of cash every quarter, but you also feel a little warm fuzzy feeling for doing something right for the environment. You don’t have to be a “greeny” to know that40

Climate Change: How Can Wind Energy Help?

Wind energy plays an important role in addressing climate change on a global level. Many countries around the world have been working hard to reduce their carbon emissions during the last decades. Some of the world’s leading markets in the US, Denmark, Australia and the UK recognized the power of clean energy and electricity to reduce carbon pollution. By increasing the proportion of electricity generated from wind energy we can lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our dependency on fossil40
