The world's largest corporations are investing in renewable energy. Shouldn't you be doing the same?

Have you checked out the University of New South Wales?  They are known for setting solar photovoltaic efficiency records.   I have never been to Australia and don’t know anyone for UNSW.  So, I can’t really tell you anything more than you can find on their website.

I hope Australia gets a new PM as soon as they can.  One who embraces renewables.  Australia would be perfect for wind and solar!

+J.G. Christie Every student in thermodynamics (mechanical engineering/energy conversion) is taught about the stirling engine.  Stirling engines are well understood, are commonly used in certain industries (cryogenic coolers) and there have been many attempts to use them commercially in a host of applications.  There is nothing magical about the Stirling engine, it is just one of many heat engines, and it has strengths and weaknesses just like competing technologies.  There is no inherent efficiency benefit to a stirling engine, and in fact the most efficient heat engine yet built is either a diesel engine or combined cycle engine (combined cycle with a diesel as starting point is likely the highest.)

IBM has developed a new computer system which can foresee renewable energy availability

This is one of the most exciting articles I have seen posted to this google circle, thank you very much Kamlesh

I hope that IBM (and its competitors) build on this use of 'big data' and 'machine learning' to provide increasingly accurate generation forecasts to support the utilities across the globe with the seamless integration of more and more intermittent generation from renewable sources, at the lowest possible cost to consumers

I believe there are two more obvious steps along similar lines that will also help
1. increase data inputs to include micro generation (such as domestic solar pv)
2. pro-active management of demand (via multi-millions of 'smart white goods' ) to ensure dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters, fridges & freezers complete their programs by the time specified by their owners / maintain their temperatures without continual use of electricity as well as charging electric vehicles, to align the demeand, in real time, with renewable generation and thus reduce the aggregate level of investment that is required to store electricity, by using as much of it as is possible, when it is freely available

This is good news they should shut these down and put the employees in training to start building new clean energy plants.

Get M.O.R.E.: How Motion-Based, Off-Grid Renewable Energy Will Power the IoT

Check out this video of Jessica Williams, Founder of Uncharted Play, at #reworkiot  in Boston: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz29ORuQjaE

Whether it's wearables or stand-alone products, our society is rapidly approaching a reality where everything is smart and connected, providing data that will help us know ourselves and improve the world. Unfortunately, one of the major obstacles holding back the ubiquity of an Internet of Things world is battery life. Smart, internet-connected products require power to work, and consistently halting usage to charge these devices is not natural or realistic. 

During this talk, Jessica will go over her initial experience developing products with M.O.R.E. inside, and how her company is now looking to the IoT's power frontier.

The Conservative government is expected to announce cuts to green energy subsidies in its budget tomorrow. This comes after the amount spend on the subsidies, which help build wind farms, solar panels and biomass plant, has risen to £9 billion per year. 
It is expected that todays budget will announce huge cuts to green energy subsidies after key Conservatives called them ‘out of control’. The Department of Energy and Climate Change was ran by the Lib Dems over the past 5 years during the coalition government, which is what the out of control spending has been blamed on.

+P Grimm Yes it is, but tapping on a individual basis(house by house, like Tesla discovered could be done, like people believe the Pyramid's were for, in Pre-Hissstory time's) the Kashmir field would not hurt the environment or people, except the RICH ENTITLED WAR MONGER'S.
GOOD RIDDANCE, ANY WAY'S. RIGHT?

The 7 Deadly Sins of Greenwashing

Greenwashing is the act of misleading consumers regarding the practices of a company or the environmental benefits of a product or service.

According to the UL 2010 Greenwashing Report (which is the most recent version), in that year there were 73% more products on the market that referred to themselves as "green" than existed the year before. Of those, only 4.5% of the 4744 products examined were completely free of greenwashing. Read Full Article > http://www.poplarnetwork.com/news/7-deadly-sins-greenwashing

Mientras la producción nuclear creció un 2,2 % en 2014, la solar lo hizo en un 38% y la eólica en un 10%. Las energías renovables están proporcionando ya más energía que las plantas nucleares en los países más poblados del mundo, según un nuevo informe de la industria nuclear.

The EU has been urged by is enviromental members to toughen its targets to reduce pollution, stating that these mesures could save the EU £40 billion per year.

Air pollution is currently responsible for around 400,000 premature deaths a year in Europe.
There has been calls for the EU to act upon its air pollution levels, which are reportedly responsible for 400,000 premature deaths each year. The environmental Members of the European Parliament have stated that a 70% reduction in air pollution could save anywhere up to £40 billion by 2030.

The UK government has stated that it will continue to support the North Sea oil and gas industry's recovery while in the same speech confirms an end to onshore wind farm subsidies.
The Government has said it will continue to support the North Sea oil and gas industry by establishing a governing body that will be in charge of regulation to help with recover and asset stewardship. The industry had begun to struggle when the oil prices had crashed towards the back end of 2014 and beginning of 2015, and has only recently started to recover. However, the Government do not believe the recovery is picking up enough pace, which is ...

What The Future Of Energy Might Look Like:

You're already familiar with solar power, wind power, and even water power. But when it comes to the future of energy, those #RenewableEnergy sources soon could be old news. Scientists and engineers are now building mashup versions of the renewable sources we're using today with the goal of generating power with even greater efficiency and #sustainability.
