Green Power: Perspectives on Sustainable Electricity by Joao Neiva de Figueiredo, Mauro F. Guillén

By Joao Neiva de Figueiredo, Mauro F. Guillén

Green strength: views on Sustainable electrical energy Generation offers a scientific evaluate of the present country of eco-friendly energy and renewable electricity construction on this planet. offering 8 in-depth case stories of eco-friendly energy construction and dissemination, it illustrates the reviews and top practices of assorted international locations in this subject of severe importance.

The book’s case experiences offer readers with coverage, enterprise, and societal views. They research the variations in every one country’s traditional endowments, cultural makeup, technological improvement, public-policy issues, and institutional incentive constructions relative to the development of eco-friendly and sustainable energy.

  • Considers China’s strength profile and what's being performed to minimize the country’s reliance on coal
  • Describes the cultural foundations and institutional surroundings that gave start to Germany’s power revolution
  • Supplies an outline of the renewable strength region in Spain and analyzes its destiny customers in mild of modern fiscal difficulties
  • Reports on French Polynesia’s growth in its quest to generate half its electrical energy from renewable resources via 2020
  • Investigates the feasibility of biomass as a large-scale electrical energy new release option
  • Explores the imaginative and prescient of energy new release in house which can clear up mankind’s strength wishes permanently

By illustrating the stories of alternative countries, the e-book outlines necessary classes discovered and top practices that may be tremendous worthy to different international locations as they search a greener power profile. providing a well timed evaluate of renewable and non-renewable electrical energy assets, it presents in-depth research of the most important components that have an effect on good fortune. It additionally identifies practices which were precursors to failure so that you can steer clear of making a similar errors on your quest to give a contribution to the long-overdue development of eco-friendly strength.

Example text

Chapter 8 examines the feasibility of biomass as a large-scale electricity generation option. It begins with a description of biomass as a renewable energy source and examines its usage in different parts of the world. Through an uncomplicated exercise, the chapter estimates the feasibility of biomass and then explores its promise in Brazil, a country with vast biopower potential. The chapter’s main conclusion is that the feasibility of biopower depends heavily on proximity to biomass sources (because of the high logistics and transportation costs/generated electricity revenues ratio) and also on whether the biopower can be coproduced within another process.

In particular, this chapter details the roles of electric vehicles as alternatives to fossil fuel– based transportation and also as storage devices for electricity, examining the four main issues that must be resolved if electric vehicles are to be adopted on a large scale: battery technology, grid-support capability, battery-charging infrastructure, and the electric vehicle business model. The second issue, grid-support capability, is related intrinsically to the topic of this book, not only because of the projected increase in worldwide demand for electricity but also because in the presence of smart grids, electric car owners will be able to sell energy stored in their cars’ batteries if they so choose.

Saudi power demand is growing at an annual rate of 6%, which is so rapid that the country’s need is expected to double within the decade. As a result, several analysts project that Saudi Arabia could become a net importer of crude oil by 2013 without a major change in energy policy (Hinckley 2012). To meet incremental power consumption without bankrupting the country, the Electricity and Co-Generation Regulatory Authority has built new natural gas power plants, which now account for nearly 50% of the country’s electricity generation capacity.
