Energy Development

Renewable Energy in Malaysia Energy is a key driver for economic growth, constituting about 20% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In 2010, the total primary energy supply was 3127.7 petajoules. The main energy sources of commercial energy supply were crude oil, which accounted 44.7% and natural gas which accounted 41.6%. These sources remain major ones. However, the share of coal and coke increased from 9.1% in 2005 to 11.2 % in these years and only 2.5% came from the non-fossil source of hydro...

Energy Crisis

might not be able to get out of. If the pursuit of energy continues in the direction it is going, more and more problems will arise and inhibit the everyday lives of society while increasing the risk of major disasters inflicted by big energy companies. In the article, “The Coming Era of Energy Disasters” written by Michael Klare, Klare says, “As long as the industry stays on this course, rather than undertaking the transition to an alternative energy future, more such catastrophes are inevitable,...

Nuclear Energy vs. Geothermal Energy

efficient, clean, high out-put energy production. As a civilization we need not focus on what the past has held for energy production but rather what the present and future hold for us. Two key options are the long lasting, high out-put but environmentally hazardous option which is nuclear fission (nuclear power) and the safe but potential ground water contamination hazard which is geothermal energy. This paper will point out strictly fact based information on both forms of energy and which one shows the...

Energy Conservation

In today’s world, most of us know that it is important to turn off lights and other electrical appliances to conserve energy, but not everyone understands that the reason for the emphasis on cutting back on the use of energy is due to the inevitable depletion of our environment’s nonrenewable resources. Of course, electric power is not the only factor that has lead to our supply of nonrenewable resources declining in recent decades. The overdependence on natural gas and oil to fuel our cars and...
