This Solar Panel-Like Device Can Generate Electricity In The Dark - Not Much Power Now But Promising Research


Raman’s findings were published in the journal Joule today. His device — made from easy-to-find materials including Styrofoam and off-the-shelf aluminium parts — takes advantage of radiative cooling, the process that allows objects to release heat after the Sun sets.

The top portion of the device cools down more quickly than the bottom, allowing it to turn the temperature swing into electricity with the help of a thermoelectric generator.

So yes it generates very little power now but shows where research is going (and this is way lower cost than solar PVs). We should remember too that the first solar panels themselves generated very little power and it took a decade or more for them to become really commercially viable. It took another decade or more before prices fell for us to afford them at home so any idea like this will take time to see if it works out.

Malcolm Turnbull says renewables plus storage are cheaper than coal and nuclear for new power generation


Mr Turnbull refers to "new coal". Leading experts consulted by Fact Check pointed out that new coal-fired power plants would most likely be required to accept a "risk premium" when obtaining finance, reflecting uncertainty over international and domestic climate and energy policy, future clean-up costs, and higher construction risks.

According to some estimates, interest rates faced by new coal projects as a consequence would be twice those applying to wind or solar projects. Factoring this in makes new coal an even less attractive proposition. The best available data suggests that under current conditions, nuclear energy would not be a cheaper source of electricity than renewables, as Mr Turnbull points out.

For me, although the reasoning behind the financing risk premiums and associated costs are an interesting perspective not often mentioned, the article gives a particularly useful explanation in layman's terms as to how the levelised cost of electrici... Show more...

Germany leads complaint against plan to leave polluted remains of Shell rigs in place

The British government is facing growing outrage from the European commission and five EU member states over its plans to leave some decommissioned oil rigs in the North Sea, with one senior German official describing the UK’s proposal as a “grotesque idea” that amounts to a “ticking timebomb”.

Several hundred oil drilling platforms in the North Sea are due to be decommissioned over the next three decades as they approach the end of their operational lifetime.

Moscow aiming to win influence by wooing African states with nuclear energy

Russia is attempting to gain influence in Africa and earn billions of pounds by selling developing nations nuclear technology that critics say is unsuitable and unlikely to benefit the continent’s poorest people.

Representatives of Rosatom, the Russian state corporation responsible for both the military and civil use of nuclear energy, have approached the leaders of dozens of African countries in the past two years.

Rosatom says five staff died in accident that caused radiation levels to spike in Arkhangelsk

Russia’s nuclear energy agency has said an explosion that caused radiation levels to spike in the Arkhangelsk region was caused by an accident during a test of an “isotope power source for a liquid-fueled rocket engine”.

In a statement released late on Friday, Rosatom said five of its employees had died as a result of the accident and three more were being treated for burns.

I just wondered how to find a converter from one phase 230 V AC to three phase 400 V AC (50Hz/50Hz fix) for less than 10 kW.

That should be pretty easy to accomplish with a AC/DC/AC conversion system, so a uncontrolled #rectifier and then a three phase #inverter supplied by the DC voltage.

EU’s lending arm financed oil, gas and coal projects in 2018 with more than €2.4bn

The European Investment Bank has vowed to end its multibillion euro financing for fossil fuel projects by the end of next year in order to align its strategy with climate targets.

The EU’s lending arm has drafted plans, seen by the Guardian, which propose cutting support for energy infrastructure projects which rely on oil, gas or coal by barring companies from applying for loans beyond the end of 2020.

"Before the climatology scam began, the CIA wrote a memorandum named “Climate Control“. Under the conditions of post WWII and ongoing cold war. After 20 years of research the development and usage of climate control methods was proposed and the official implementation started with this memorandum. . The paper reveals not only the intention of global water grabbing (GWG) for desert farming and climate control as WMD of “Goephysical Warfare“, but climate control as the main reason for the development of nuclear energy! . According to this paper the nuclear power plants are proposed as the source of magnitude energy, required for climate control!"

The Lumir K lamp - This $39 Cooking Oil-Powered Lamp Shines 100 Times Brighter Than a Candle


When there's no electricity, it's pretty difficult to do … anything. Whether you're camping or trying to get through a power outage, you don't want to have to worry about dead batteries in your flashlight or struggling to see by dim candlelight. The Lumir K lamp, now raising money on Indiegogo, provides bright LED light using only a tiny bit of cooking oil.

The Lumir K works with a wick, like a candle, but provides the brightness of an electric lamp, burning 100 times brighter than a traditional candle. To turn it on, users just need to pour cooking oil in the container, light the wick, and place the lamp cover on top of it. To turn it off, users can simply blow out the candle. Roughly 1 teaspoon of oil can provide an hour of light. Unlike solar lamps, Lumir K can provide year-round light even in very rainy environments.

In the developing work access to electricity to charge devices, disposal of batteries, etc are still problems. Often cooking oil is still ava... Show more...
 

G20 Nations Spending $63.9 Billion Annually On Coal Subsidies for a Fading Industry


Days before representatives of the G20 meet in Japan, a new report has been published by the Overseas Development Institute, or ODI, which reveals these nations are spending at least $63.9 billion on coal annually.

The new ODI report, G20 coal subsidies: Tracking government support to a fading industry, finds that G20 nations are supporting coal domestically and internationally to the tune of $63.9 billion each year, despite committing in 2009 to phase out fossil fuel subsidies. “It has now been ten years since the G20 committed to phasing out subsidies to fossil fuels, yet astonishingly some governments are actually increasing the amount they give to coal power plants,” said lead author Ipek Gençsü, Research Fellow at ODI.

Specifically, the report finds that G20 governments are supporting coal to the tune of $27.6 billion annually in domestic and international public financing, $15.4 billion in fiscal support, and $20.9 billion in state-owned enterpri... Show more...

War of words as Turkish vessel begins offshore operations in eastern Mediterranean

Greece and Cyprus have urged the European Union to take punitive measures against Turkey amid escalating tensions in the eastern Mediterranean over offshore energy reserves.

As Ankara upped the ante by announcing it would expand exploration for potentially lucrative gas resources in the region, the Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, appealed to the EU “to unreservedly condemn the illegal actions of Turkey”.
