5 Innovative and Unusual Ways to Generate Green Energy

Industrial Revolution Meets Green Revolution

Sometimes the best way to look forward is to look back. The folks at Otherpower, a low-tech wind turbine company in Colorado, have built a very cool and beautiful steam-powered electrical generator using an antique steam engine and boiler. Using nothing but a wood-fired boiler, they can generate 2.5 kilowatts of power. And they have taken steampunk to a whole new level.

RMB 5 trillion yuan investment opportunities in new energy (green energy) in China

In the next 10 years, China will open the markets to attract foreign investment on green energy (renewable power, alternative energy). The cumulative increase in direct investment will be RMB 5 trillion yuan. The development of new energy (clean power, renewable power, alternative energy) industry, will enable significant acceleration of structural adjustment of domestic energy resources, also strategic transformation of more Central Enterprises.

Long-awaited "new energy development plan" will soon be settled. Recently, Jiang Bing said, who is The Secretary of the general office of National Energy Administration of China, new energy (green power, clean power, renewable power, alternative energy) development plan has been prepared and is ready to be reported in accordance with the procedures and approval.

BI-Fuel for Greener Travels

The fuel is widely used by the majority of taxi drivers because of its lower price compared to gasoline and diesel fuel. It is useful to know that CNG vehicles with the Bulgarian standard nozzle can be refueled in many other CNG stations throughout Europe with some exceptions such as Germany, Austria. At lower engine loads, gasoline use tends to be higher whereas at higher engine loads it is possible to use a higher proportion of gas. BI-fuel engines are usually the result of a conversion of a gasoline engine and have the advantage of not being totally dependent on natural gas for fuel supply. Thus, if a vehicle runs out of natural gas or is away from an available fuel source, it is able to operate solely on gasoline. In this case it proves to be both economical and convenient to operate a bi-fueled vehicle than one that remains reliant on a single fuel source.

Bulgaria's Energy Position

Although the country has large deposits of coal but these are mostly lignite the country does not want to rely on energy generated from coal. Lignite is often referred to as brown coal and it is used almost exclusively as a fuel for steam-electric power generation. The other deposits of coal in Bulgaria are Anthracite deposits which is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon count and contains the fewest impurities of all coals.

These resources could relieve some of the reliance on the importation of electrical generation, but the determination of the governing bodies to use more eco friendly alternatives has taken first priority. This has been shown from the country’s dedication towards the development and construction of alternative or more ecological energy production projects.

Alternative Energy from Alternative Sources

In the United States as well as many other nations throughout the world the balance between energy demands and natural resources have become problematic areas within the governmental framework. In many states, there has been renewed emphasis on the need for energy sources that promote U.S. energy independence, avoid fossil fuel use, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Incineration in the whole was not the desired resolution but by the major advances in today's technology has transformed the standard incineration process into an alternative energy resolution that makes more sense than first imagined. Now with the advancement in technologies, these once called incinerators are referred to as waste co-generation facilities, or resource recovery facilities. In short household waste is taken in and through a complex process is incinerated and converted into thermal and electrical power generation.

The Resource Recovery electricity generation facilities today are well-positioned to deliver these benefits and to promote continued benefits while also providing for safe and reliable disposal of household trash. These facilities provide the means to resolve the landfill problem by utilizing the waste as fuel and the residue from the combustion process is approximately 90% less of the fuel burnt. This reduces the land fill space needed for the waste and extends the life of the landfill and greatly reduces the ecological effect on the community. The ash residue itself can also be sold or used as an ingredient in the production of cement, artificial reefs or even for road construction. 

China Renewable Energy Market Outlook

China has made great strides in the last two decades in bringing prosperity to a greater share of its people. Older state-run industries are being replaced by a dynamic new economy. Unfortunately, this economy requires a huge engine to run it, and prosperity has brought with it a huge cost in the form of air pollution - including high levels of particulates, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, plus increasing emissions of carbon dioxide.

In the last couple of years, the burning of coal produced over two-thirds of the primary energy consumed in China. Even with improvements in end-use energy efficiency, energy demand continues to grow and so does the air pollution.

In China, pollution is causing serious health problems, crop damage and acid rain, all of which are taking a significant social and economic toll.

Most opposition to renewable energy development in China comes from those who are concerned about the higher capital cost of the generation capacity. While a concerted renewables programme can substantially reduce cost through competition and economies-of-scale, there are several additional benefits that can ultimately affect cost. Renewable energy development makes sense from a number of points of view, particularly with regards to energy security, international competition, employment benefits, plus environmental and health improvements.

China has chosen wind power as an important alternative source in order to rebalance its energy mix, combat global warming and ensure energy security. Supportive policies and measures have also been introduced.
