When most people think of safe and clean energy, what comes to mind is usually basic information that’s not particularly interesting or beneficial. But there’s a lot more to safe and clean energy than just the basics.
Clean energy technologies-particularly clean energy infrastructures such as wind, clean fuels, and solar-are key to reducing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Oracle has an outstanding track record for delivering business value to clean energy companies.
Wind power continues to dominate renewable energy, both in installed capacity and manufacturing. However, installations are fragmented with 40% of 9.8 gw installed capacity from projects that are less that 5 mw. Wind, solar and biomass projects can be hugely expensive, and sometimes downright uneconomical. But FITs let investors get a return, and they create a guaranteed market for renewable electricity, which encourages development.
Those of you not familiar with the latest on safe and clean energy now have at least a basic understanding. But there’s more to come.
Clean energy includes activities, such as the production of alternative fuels, renewable power generation and the use of technologies to reduce the environmental impact of traditional energy.
Solar power is waiting for more efficient fuel cells. And coal gasification is an unproven technology. Solar’s peak period of production, happily coincides with the peak period of demand. So solar can aid with the heavy day load, while gas handles the evening.
However, there were also some bright points in 2008 especially in developing economies – China became the world’s second largest wind market in terms of new capacity and the world’s biggest photovoltaic manufacturer and a rise in geothermal energy may be getting underway in countries from Australia to Japan and Kenya.
Now you can understand why there’s a growing interest in safe and clean energy. When people start looking for more information about safe and clean energy, you’ll be in a position to meet their needs.
