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.

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.

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.

"Craddock, a journalist, outlines how to use alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass, geothermal energy, and hydropower. He discusses their pros and cons, how they work and what makes them efficient, and areas where they need improvement. He also describes several case studies of their use, with instructions on how to build solar panels, battery chargers, and ovens, biogas generators, wind turbines, and other do-it-yourself projects."--Book News.

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."

As energy demands continue to surge worldwide, the need for more efficient and environmentally neutral energy production also becomes increasingly apparent. Renewable Resources and Renewable Energy: A Global Challenge presents a well-rounded perspective on the development of bio-based feedstocks, biodegradable plastics, hydrogen energy, fuel cells, and other aspects related to renewable resources and sustainable energy production. The book first examines the transformation of bio-based renewable feedstock into valuable, clean, and economically attractive products. It explains the catalytic processes involved and surveys the relevant commercial technologies that are available. The book highlights how these technologies can be used for efficient waste management solutions, particularly for the synthetic polymers industry, as well as energy production. The authors also pay particular attention to current trends for hydrogen-based and fuel cell-based technologies and provide real-world case studies of renewable energy projects in Asia and South America. An accessible reference for both scientists and non-scientists, Renewable Resources and Renewable Energy offers valuable insight into the chemical processes and practical considerations as well as the advantages, challenges, and opportunities for developing these technologies and achieving more sustainable energy production.

Building on a review of experience in the United States and the European Union, this article advances four main propositions concerning policies aimed at increasing electricity generation from renewable energy. First, who bears the short-run costs of programs to subsidize the generation of electricity from renewable sources varies with the organization of the electric power industry, and this variation may be a significant contributor to such programs political attractiveness in U.S. states. Second, despite the greater popularity of feed-in tariff schemes worldwide, renewable portfolio standard (RPS) programs may involve less long-run social risk. Third, in contrast to the European Unions approach to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, its renewables program is almost certain not to minimize the cost of achieving its goals. Fourth, state RPS programs in the United States are also almost certain to cost more than necessary, even though most use market mechanisms. To support this last proposition I provide a fairly detailed description of actual markets for renewable energy credits and their shortcomings.
