On fox inference they're gonna bring out and expert and i love this fox business so they're talking about solar energy germany receive your ass now is a business expert so forces in those details of why germany is doing better with solar energy and is ahead of us then we are so let's let them at a different the united states simply hasn't figured out how to do so worry effectively right cheaply you look at the country of germany it's working out great for that dot was germany doing correct and it just a.
Small country network there a smaller country and they've got lots of sun right they've got a lot more sound than we do in the problem is a it's a cloudy day and it's raining it not that i have it i mean this nation is is back astin and and beautiful in its and they in its nsa kapiti in california it's a great solution here in the east coast it's just not going to work that's part of his reporter true bonnie do it built you want to check anything.
By those fights news analyst of factories of but you're really got to go on and on tv and say that germany gets more some of the united states let me show you a map here of who is worse on by its color coded so you know you have to take my word for it that purple is not more son you see the us where it's red hot in the southwest that is that po one of the parts the world i guess the most son envelope land that.
Machinations east coast ah lows kid nowhere near sonny's germany total other fail in fact the east coast of the united states get some more son then germany does you see the northwest that's the only thing that's remotely similar pitcher mean color where they get the least amount of sun in the united states box newsman their unbelievable all of a arctic obviously well that that's because it's in the dissident summer there all the time is there any stuff and by the way the real reason well uh. bloomberg business week explains.
Unlike the us germany as a national solar policy groups the reality is term in government emphasizes solar power and guess what their great in solar power and now they have a private industry they make a lot of money up a bit and they're leading the world and a lot of ways a surly uh. far ahead of us not because they have more son because they're actually trying and they have a government that gives a day if you're a fox news for your news yugdarpanh i got bad news for you.
Why Should We Launch Solar Panels Into Space
This episode of DNews is brought to you by Full Sail University. This week the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency announced it wants to get solar power from space. I'm having flashbacks to disasters from SimCity2000. Hello! I'm Trace. Thank you for watching DNews. Back in the 1960s, American aerospace engineer Peter Glaser proposed launching solar panels into space, and beaming the power they collect back to the surface for our use. Since the late 60s the idea has been in a holding pattern mainly because of the expense and worries about maintenance and equipment, but thanks.
To recent developments in solar panel tech the Japanese space firm JAXA says they can finally try it. The plan is ambitious at minimum and cost hasn't yet been calculated, BUT JAXA is determined, and they're not the only ones. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is also interested in spacebased solar. The reason everyone's looking up, is because that's where the sun sits! If we can put a satellite in orbit to collect the sun's rays BEFORE the atmosphere filters them out, and without the worry of a cloudy day, that would be rad. The JAXA Space Based Power System.
Or SBPS will orbit 22,400 miles up, and if done to their specs, would completely replace a nuclear power plant by producing 1 gigawatt of electricity enough to power halfamillion homes. Their plan uses a 10,000 metric ton system, which is. well pretty ridiculous. The largest rocket ever launched was the Saturn V it took our boys to the moon and could only lift about 130 metric tons. Once the power is gathered, a converter in space will convert the electricity into a microwave beam not like in your house, literally waves of energy that are.
On the micro scale. Microwaves can be converted from energy at 80 percent efficiency, which means there would be some loss, but it would be pretty damn efficient about 48 of the power collected would reach consumers. Which doesn't sound great, but it really is. To make sure the array is getting sunlight 24hours a day, JAXA plans to put mirrors on either side of the planet to reflect sunlight at the collector all the time. The Japanese are announcing their plan so far in advance in the hope other countries.
Will gather and help realize the dream of solar from space. Once created, it could provide clean, unlimited energy anywhere on the planet, regardless of remote location. Here's the kicker. It would cost about a trillion dollars. Which sounds like a lot, but it's like 125 bucks per person on the planet in 2030. And that's WAY more than you're paying doe your power bill. Not to mention oil wars and all the pollution, ecological damage, mining and drilling that goes with fossil fuels. We've got commenting areaaassss, check them out and type your feelings on spacebased.
Solar so we can all talk about it! None of this would be possible without computers to run the system, and we need people to write the computer programs. Full Sail University in Florida offers courses to help train tech professionals by blending code and realworld experience.

What Countries Are The Most Energy Efficient
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.
Korea builds worlds first floating solar power plant that tracks sunlight
The sun is our most important source of renewable energy. but unfortunately we havent gotten round to finding a cheap and reliable way of converting into enough electricity for all of us. However. in a small step toward achieving this goal. Korea has just finished construction of a floating solar power plant. the first of its kind in the world. Won Jihyun reports. This massive solar power plant floats on a reservoir in Gyeonggido Province. And round and round it goes. following the suns movements throughout the day. This gigantic facility. that measures around 75hundred square meters was built last.
Year by a Korean energy firm called Solkiss. The floating plant is made of roughly 16hundred solar voltaic modules installed on a floating deck. that rotates on water. Using a tracking system the deck moves in the direction of the sun to maximize efficiency. Since the floating modules can collect sunlight thats reflected off water developers say this type of plant can generate more power than groundbased systems. The groundmounted rotating system can collect solar energy for an average of 3.6 hours a day. Based on our observation from January until June we found out that the.
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.
Inside the White House Solar Panels
Cheery melody of bells and strings Secretary Moniz Solar panels on the White House I think are a really important message that solar is here. We are doing it. We can do a lot more. I am very bullish on the future of solar energy as a key part of our clean energy future. James Doherty The size of the array that we established here is the typical size for the average American house. Being at the White House, we do have some security concerns. We can't cover the entire roof with panels,.
Though that would be good from an energysaving standpoint. Laughter. Cyrus Wadia Everything from the solar components to the inverter technologies to the labor that put the panels on the roof was all America. Domestic source, domestic maintenance. It serves as a symbol that America technology in solar is available, it's reliable, and it's ready for millions of Americans across the country. James Doherty So the first thing what we did was we drilled down into the concrete and then basically epoxied a series of threaded rods back up through the baton tops.
We then were able to install a series of grids for a subassembly upon which the solar panels could then be secured. Secretary Moniz Clean energy revolution is not something for the distant future. It's happening right now and we want to capture that. Cyrus Wadia Every four minutes, some small business or home owner is going solar. In a sense, we're going through a transition here and the industry is going through a transition that we're just seeing the beginning of. Minh Le The President is basically doing what Americans.
All across the nation are doing right now. They're making the conscious choice to look for renewable energy like solar as the cheaper, cleaner, and preferred energy source for their homes and families. Cyrus Wadia You know, we need to diversify the clean energy portfolio as articulated in the President's Climate Action Plan, which we are actively engaged in now. And we also need to spur the economic sectors of the future. Last year alone we created over 23,000 new jobs in solar energy. James Doherty Obviously the more that we can install.
