Importance of Non Conventional Energy by Shanavaz Khan

Conventional Energy Research has shown that fuels such as oil, gas and even nuclear have a remaining life span of 70 years. As the industrialized modern world consumes increasing amounts of energy, finding non-conventional energy sources becomes essential to sustain worldwide energy demands. There is considerable debate about the efficiency of non-conventional energy and its ability to supply the world. The contribution of renewable sources of energy remains small...

Argumentive Essay on Economic Growth

Even though evidently in the modern world it is becoming more and more alleged that we can develop without damaging nature there are still strong opposing arguments to this notion. Development needs economic growth and economic growth is very needy for industry which requirements energy resources. Currently the range of supplies that are obtained by common people has matured significantly compared to the old times. Now people feel the need, not just for as a piece of bread and a roof over their heads...

Proposal for Renewable Energy Systems with Application to Rural Area in Asia by Buku Raz

Proposal for Renewable Energy Systems with application to Rural Area in Asia by Buku Raz Abstract This study is based on optimization and simulation modelling of renewable energy system in rural area in India. The model we have designed provides an optimal system configuration based on hour-by-hour data for energy availability and demands. This model produces a minimum cost design for an energy system as well as the capacities of each technology. This tells us how to configure the system...

Position Paper on sustainable Development

for rapid economic growth and technological breakthroughs.” Russia is one of the biggest exporters of energy and energy resources in the world. However, the development of the clean renewable energy technologies is still at the preliminary stage. Looking at the Russia’s stars for base and current year, one can see the decrease of the star’s area. It is caused by reduction of carbon and energy related pollutants. Other indicators remained almost the same. However, the decrease in GHG and polluting...

ENERGY RESOURCES Energy is defined as ‘the capacity to do work’. Sun is the primary source of energy. Joule is the standard unit of energy in SI units. Energy utilization is an index of economic development, which does not take into account of ill effects/damage on to environment. From 1900 to 2000 population increased by 3 times while energy consumption by 14 times! Energy Resources All energy sources ultimately come from the sun, the moon or the earth. Sources of Energy Solar...

Tidal Power

Engineering Design for Sustainability TIDAL WAVE ENERGY Introduction Tidal power is a form of energy which derives directly from the relative motions of the Earth/Moon system, and to a lesser extent from the Earth/Sol system. Tidal energy is gained from the exchange of large bodies of water. Changes in water levels, and associated tidal currents, are due to the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon. This makes Tidal Power completely predictable; furthermore, because it is created by relative...

Dongtan Eco-City, Shanghai: World's First Large-Scale Environmental City

first demonstrator phase of Dongtan aims to be completed by 2010, in time for the World Expo in Shanghai, and will accommodate a population of up to 5,000. Later phases of development will see the city grow to hold a population of around 80,000 by 2020 and up to 500,000 by 2050. When completed the project will increase bio-diversity on Chongming Island, and will create a city that runs entirely on renewable energy for its buildings, its infrastructure and its transport needs. Dongtan will recover...
