As emerging economies continue to expand, their energy needs are set to grow dramatically in the coming years. The International Energy Agency has even predicted that global energy use will increase by 30 percent over the next two and a half decades. With crude oil the source of so much volatility around the world, there is no question that the the future of energy will be based on countries dedicated to alternative, renewable sources. So, which countries are the most energy efficient Well, the American Council for an EnergyEfficient Economy has ranked the world's 16 largest.
Economies, which account for nearly three quarters of global electricity consumption. This is based on 31 metrics, spanning energy use in buildings, industry, and transportation. It includes things like the country's national energy savings goals, vehicle fuel economy standards, and energy consumed per foot of floor space. The United States ranks among the least efficient, at number thirteen. But across the board, Germany saw the greatest energy efficiency, scoring well in all metrics, but especially industry. According to the report, German industry and manufacturing is the second most fuel efficient in the world, with plans to far surpass the current leader,.
Australia, by 2020. Part of the reason Germany is doing so well is a national policy, dedicated to lowering energy use, known as Energiewende, or Energy Transition. The goal of this program is to stop using coal and other nonrenewable energy sources like oil. Clearly, it has been working so far. In 2014, Germany accounted for half of the new wind farms in the EU, and has been leading the world in energy efficiency. In an extremely close second place overall, Italy actually surpasses Germany in transportation. Although they tie with the UK for vehicle fuel efficiency, at nearly 40 miles per gallon.
On average, Italians also travel the least per capita. This low impact, high efficiency makes Italy a world leader in transit energy. Additionally, Italy tends to prioritize its rail system over its roads, leading to more people taking the train, and thereby saving considerable energy. Still, Italy continues to primarily use fossil fuels, and actually scores the worst in terms of commercial building energy efficiency. When it comes to buildings, China takes the lead. Their polluting past and wide range of energy inefficiency may hold them back. But China's residential buildings use less.
Energy per square foot than any other country in the report. This is partially due to strict building codes, and the fact that energy intensity is one of the country's top priorities. And despite being known for wastefulness, between 1980 and 2010, energy consumption increased five times, while the economy grew 18 times. Between Germany, Italy, and China, emerging countries can look at their journeys towards energy efficiency, and fine tune their own programs for maximum output. Still, every country surveyed has a long way to go, and plenty of areas to improve. Hopefully, 2016.
AnheuserBusch brewing up some wind, solar power
DOZENS OF RESIDENTS ARE OPPOSED TO THIS PLAN AND SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP IT. HARNESSING THE POWER OF WIND. THEY CAN DO A LOT MORE THAN COOL US OFF. BRIAN HICKEY IS LIVE IN FAIRFIELD, WHERE ANHEUSERBUSCH IS PLANNING TO INSTALL ANOTHER POWERGENERATING WIND TURBINE YOU CANNOT BLAME THEM. I HAVE A 10 MILEPERHOUR WIND THIS AFTERNOON. THEY ARE CAPTURING THAT WENT BACK THERE. YOU MIGHT SEE THAT AS YOU HAVE DRIVEN BY HERE. BUDWEISER, AS THEY ARE DUBBED. NOW WE ARE INTRODUCING YOUTUBE TO BUD LITE, SITTING ON THE.
GROUND. THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE AS THEY INSTALL THEIR SECOND WHEN THE WIND TURBINE WHAT ARE YOU DOING HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY THIS, COMBINED WITH WIND 1, WILL COMBINE FOR 4.1 MEGAWATTS. PUT THAT IN TERMS OF BEER. AN AVERAGE OF 33,000 CASES OF BEER PER DAY. ALL FROM ALTERNATIVE ENERGY ALL FROM RENEWABLE ENERGY. IT WILL BE ENOUGH TO POWER 30. THIS IS BIGGER THAN BUDWEISER YES. THE SECOND TURBINE WILL STAND TO THE TIP OF '7 FEET TALL. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING NOW IS THE TOWER IS BEING CLEANED AND ROLLE.
The Worlds Largest Wind Farm Chinas Future MEGAPROJECTS Part 6
By now you're seeing the trend here the world's biggest city, the world's longest canal, biggest airport, longest high speed rail network and underwater tunnel. So the fact that China is building the world's largest Wind Power Farm too shouldn't surprise you. The Gansu Wind Farm Project will produce 20 Gigawatts of power by 2020, and will cost nearly $20 billion to build. Turbines are going up at the staggering rate of 35 per day across the three areas that make up the power base. In 2012, Gansu's capacity surpassed the total windgeneratedelectricity produced by all of the United Kingdom, and it's just.
The largest of six megawind farms currently under construction throughout China. But China isn't embracing wind just to reduce its carbon emissions, it's doing everything it can to simply keep the lights on. Some parts of the country with booming middle class populations suffer persistent electricity shortages because, just like us, people want refrigerators, dishwashers, washer and dryers, and computers in their homes, but there's only so much energy to go around. So China's State Council is pushing for an acrosstheboard renewable strategy to reduce its dependence on oil, coal and gas, the finite resources of the 20th century whose.
Extraction and consumption are subject to constant geopolitical tensions. Since 2013, China has led the world in renewable energy production, with a total capacity of 378 installed Gigawatts, coming from projects as wideranging as Gansu to hydroelectric power plants like the Three Gorges Dam, which spans the Yangtze River and is the world's largest power station of any kind. In just the last 10 years, China has increased its solar panel production 100fold to become the world's leading manufacturer of the technology. With China now pumping more CO2 into the atmosphere than the number two and three emitting countries.
Peak Oil News 21913 Fiat Electric Car, Solar Power, Tesla S Production
His is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything inbetween. The Fiat 500 electric car will go on sale in California this year. The electric range is rated at a respectable 87 miles. Electric cars are slowly having longer electric ranges over their competitors. It's 87 mile electric range surpasses the range of the Nissan Leaf, the Ford Focus, the Honda Fit, the SmartForTwo and the Mitsubishi IMev. Tesla Model S production has finally been ramped up to 400 cars per week or about 20,000.
Per year. There is still debate, however, as to whether Tesla can survive. That task may have become a lot easier with the Fisker Karma halting production several months back. The Karma was Tesla's greatest luxury electric vehicle competitor. Tesla's ultimate goal is to mass produce cheaper electric cars. Tesla wants to utilize the vast unused space at it's hightech factory in California. One man tries to combat the hazardous air pollution in China. He built a breathing bike to filter the air through a fighter jet type mask. The bike powers the pumps to move.
The air through. Beijing air is equal to smoking about a pack of cigarettes a day. Not to be outdone, they are selling cans of fresh air on the streets for $7 a piece. If you think the air is bad now, wait until China and India build the proposed 500 new coal plants in the coming years. And trust me, they won't be clean coal plants. There is a solar power plant in Spain that runs 24 hours per day. Hundreds of mirrors direct the sun's rays towards a central tower. The tower than heats molten salt. This is.
