2016 Abstract: Islands incur more difficult and expensive energy supplies; many offshore islands, therefore, develop renewable energy to supply energy and reduce CO2 emissions. However, most of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, are intermittent and variable sources of power. To overcome the integration problems, numerous islands have utilized several useful methods. For ...[Read More]
2015 Abstract: In the Mediterranean region, there are many drip irrigation systems with pumps that are powered by diesel generator sets (gensets). Although they could be powered by renewable energy produced on-site, technical and economic factors make that difficult. Moreover, the seasonal nature of demand requires an oversizing of energy generation and/or storage, increasing system cos...[Read More]
477 pages , John Wiley & Sons , 2010-01-05 This book deals with the emerging generation of renewable energy technologies, covering solar energy (photovoltaic, thermal and thermodynamic energy conversion), wind energy, marine energy, small hydropower, geothermal energy, biofuels, biogas and the use of wood as a substitute for fossil fuels.
324 pages , MDPI , 2020-03-25 The effects of human-caused global warming are obvious, requiring new strategies and approaches. The concept of business-as-usual is now no longer beneficial. Extraction of renewable energy in marine environments represents a viable solution and an important path for the future. These huge renewable energy resources in seas and oceans can be...[Read More]
2015 As the global population increases, so does global demand for energy, water and food expand. Meeting this continual spike of demand presents a tremendous challenge to Small Island States, given competing needs for limited resources amid heightened climate change. In order to overcome the increasing constraints that Small Island States encounter, serious consideration must be given ...[Read More]

352 pages , New Society Publishers , 2011-07-05 Presents information on how to improve a home's energy efficiency and switch to renewable energy resourses to provide electricity, hot water, heat, and cooling for a home.
187 pages , United Nations Publications , 2000 Renewable energy resources are expected to play a significant role in sustainable energy development as carbon energy supplies diminish. In addition to their abundance in Asia and the Pacific, renewable energy resources have little or no adverse impact on the environment. This publication takes up the theme of commercialisat...[Read More]
2015 Comparing Germany's and Brazil's government perspectives, Sybille Roehrkasten reveals that the ideas on global renewable energy governance are highly contested. In her study, the author sheds light on the politics behind the definition of global governance issues, focusing on two pioneers in the worldwide promotion of renewables and two decisive players in this emergent area of glo...[Read More]
230 pages , Routledge , 2018-08-06 This book explores various facets of the transition to renewable energy in the Arctic region. It critically examines the adverse effects of fossil fuel extraction and use, environmental and social impacts of climate change, and the possibility of a low carbon energy system through innovation and technology. Drawing together a diverse ra...[Read More]
21 pages , 2011 In early October 2010, two Laser and Detection Ranging (LIDAR) units (LIDAR-96 and LIDAR-97), a 3 m tall flux tower, and a 3 m tall meteorological tower were installed in the northern section of Site 300 (Figure 1) as a first step in development of a renewable energy testbed facility. This section of the SMS project is aimed at supporting that effort with continu...[Read More]
