The benefits of wave power
The benefits of wave power
There are many interesting advances being made that allow us to harness many of the earth’s natural energy sources to produce electricity. Wave power plants, still in relative infancy, use energy from the oscillating motion of waves to generate electrical energy. Although there are many obstacles to...
The Future is Human
The Future is Human
Recent development and research by engineers at Princeton University in the US has lead to some predictions, however tongue-in-cheek, that rather than wind or solar power human power may actually be the coming force in renewable technology. The engineers, through their research, developed a unit that...
Renewable energy: Why?
Renewable energy: Why?
The world’s current fuel supply is supplied by fossil fuels, which are oil, coal, and natural gas which has formed from the remains of dead plants and animals. These remains have been buried over the course of millions of years and with pressure and heat, they are converted into what we use for...
Tidal energy
Tidal energy
Tidal energy is another form of hydro-power that is harvested through the usage of energy generating turbines wherever water flows occur. There are three main types of tidal energy generators: tidal stream systems, barrages and tidal lagoons. Tidal stream systems are a fairly new technology that was...
Solar, Wind or Hydro?
Solar, Wind or Hydro?
As competition increases for dwindling reserves of natural fossils fuels, many industrialized nations have for many years now been investigating alternative sources of generating greener, renewable energy. The demands of the emerging industrialized economies of Asia have placed even greater strain on...
