Energy and environmental issues have caused a marked increase inelectricity production from renewable energy sources since thebeginning of the 21st Century. The concept of sustainabledevelopment and concern for future generations challenge us everyday to produce new technologies for energy production, and newpatterns of use for these energies. Their rapid emergence can makethe understanding and therefore the perception of these newtechnologies difficult. This book aims to contribute to a betterunderstanding of the new electricity generation technologies byaddressing a diverse audience. It presents the issues, sources andmeans of conversion into electricity using a general approach anddevelops scientific concepts to understand their main technicalcharacteristics. Systems of electricity generation from renewable energy resourcesof small to medium powers are presented. The basic electricalconcepts necessary for understanding the operating characteristicsof these energy converters are introduced, and the constraints andproblems of integration in the electrical networks of those meansof production are discussed. Several exercises are provided to thereader for evaluation purposes. Contents 1. Decentralized Electricity Production from Renewable Energy,Benoît Robyns. 2. Solar Photovoltaic Power, Arnaud Davigny. 3. Wind Power, Bruno Francois and Benoît Robyns. 4. Terrestrial and Marine Hydroelectricity: Waves and Tides,Benoît Robyns and Antoine Henneton. 5. Thermal Power Generation, Jonathan Sprooten. 6. Integration of the Decentralized Production into the ElectricalNetwork, Benoît Robyns.

This volume examines the outlook for renewable energy in electricity generation-particularly wind and solar power-as a substitute for conventional fuels such as coal and natural gas. Economist Benjamin Zycher evaluates the central arguments in favor of policies that would make way for broader use of renewables and concludes that all are deeply problematic. "Renewable" energy sources are not superior in cost to conventional fuels; nor are they less taxing on the environment. The popular argument that increased use of renewables will create "green jobs" is likewise a fallacy-because wind and solar power are costly and inefficient, the net economic impact is a negative one. Zycher concludes that resource-use behaviors emerging from market competition are the best guides to effective, sustainable energy policies.

A feed-in tariff is a renewable energy law that obliges energy suppliers to buy electricity produced from renewable resources at a fixed price, usually over a fixed periodeven from householders. These legal guarantees ensure investment security, and the support of all viable renewable energy technologies.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Globalization, Political Economics, grade: 1,8, University of Applied Sciences Essen, language: English, abstract: Renewable energies have become more and more important as energy sources in the recent decades and they will become even more significant further on: They reveal as the main hope for the worldwide energy supply in the future. The presented Master Thesis concentrates on their importance for electricity production in the strategy of E.ON in consideration of special comparison to RWE. Both companies are the greatest energy suppliers in Germany. The special focus of the work lies on the important as-pects of internationalization and globalization. The aim is to show how the globaliza-tion drivers affect on renewable energies for electricity production and what that means to the strategy of E.ON and RWE."

The EU's common Energy Policy commits the EU to generating 20 per cent of total energy consumption from renewables by 2020. The European Commission proposed national renewable energy targets for each Member State, and it was suggested that 15 per cent of UK energy be derived from renewables by 2020. Renewable energies comprise three sectors: heating and cooling, transport and electricity. In order to meet the EU Mandated Target of 15 per cent renewable energies by 2020, it will be necessary to generate approximately 35-40 per cent of electricity from renewable sources. This represents a considerable challenge, for which the Government's targets for renewable electricity generation are wholly inadequate. Presently, UK targets require 10 per cent of electricity to be sourced from renewables by 2010 rising to 20 per cent by 2020. It is essential that the Government revise these targets, and align them with the UK's EU Mandated Target. Developers of renewable electricity generation projects have to negotiate a crowded funding landscape, a protracted-and often costly-planning system, and a poorly conceived regime for accessing the UK electricity transmission system. The Government should work to remove current barriers to technology deployment. It is still feasible to meet the 2020 renewable energy targets, but time is running out. The Government must take steps to support the widespread deployment of renewable electricity-generation technologies as a priority, both at the level of macro and microgeneration. But the Committee has been consistently disappointed by the lack of urgency expressed by the Government-and at times by the electricity industry-in relation to the challenge ahead.

Worldwide, many regions have a great potential to cover part of their pressing water needs by renewable energy powered water treatment processes using either thermal or membrane based technologies. Not only arid and semiarid regions are increasingly suffering from water shortage but also many other regions face a limitation of freshwater resources either by increasing contamination of surface water bodies or groundwater resources unsuitable for drinking and irrigation purposes either due to their high grade of mineralization or their contents of toxic components. In many areas without centralized water supply, treatment techniques using locally available renewable energy resources such as wind, solar and geothermal can provide an economical, social and environmentally sustainable option for clean water production from seawater and from highly mineralized or otherwise unsuitable ground- and surface water. This book provides an overview on possible cost-efficient techniques and application opportunities for different scales and shows why the implementation of these technologies faces numerous technological, economic and policy barriers and provides suggestions how they can be overcome. It serves as a synoptic compendium of the fundamentals of freshwater production using renewable energies, applicable to all types of water, ranging from brackish to marine water and also including industrial and communal residual water. The book is aimed at professionals, academics and decision makers worldwide, working in the areas of water resources, water supply,land planning, energy planning, greenhouse gases emission mitigation and rural development.
