2019, May, 23, 12:00:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART THREE.
The technology of obtaining energy using biogas is simple and cheap. Of course, it also pollutes the environment, but its main problem is the impossibility of generating energy on an industrial scale. This technology is applicable in agriculture on farms, but it is not possible to power a factory, a city or a village from it.
2019, May, 22, 10:55:00ENERGY FOR PEOPLE
Despite significant progress in recent years, the world is falling short of meeting the global energy targets set in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) for 2030.
2019, May, 22, 10:50:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART TWO.
Today the world production of heat, mechanical and electrical energy exceeds 50 trillion. kW / h per year or 5.7 billion kWh per hour. At the same time, more than 80% of the production of all types of energy comes from the burning of fossil fuels - hydrocarbon energy.
2019, May, 22, 10:25:00RUSSIA,RWANDA NUCLEAR
On the May 16, 2019, in Moscow, the roadmap for establishing Russian-Rwanda cooperation in the peaceful uses of atomic energy was signed.
2019, May, 21, 15:15:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY
We will not talk about hydrocarbon energy - it is expensive, uses limited fuel supplies (oil, gas, coal) and pollutes the environment very much. We consider only three types of electricity generation - nuclear, solar and oxygen.
2019, May, 15, 12:00:00RUSSIA'S ENERGY SECURITY DOCTRINE
Russia's President Vladimir Putin approved a new energy security doctrine Monday, which includes strengthening cooperation with foreign partners, defending Russian energy companies' legal rights abroad and access to international markets, and further developing Russia's import replacement program.
2019, May, 15, 11:55:00GLOBAL ENERGY INVESTMENT 2018: $1.8 TLN
Global energy investment totalled more than USD 1.8 trillion in 2018, a level similar to 2017. For the third year in a row, the power sector attracted more investment than the oil and gas industry.
2019, May, 15, 11:52:00U.S. ENERGY PRODUCTION UP 8%
The United States produced a record amount of energy from various sources in 2018, reaching 96 quadrillion British thermal units (quads), an 8% increase from 2017. This increase in production outpaced the 4% increase in U.S. energy consumption, which also reached a record high of 101 quads.
2019, May, 13, 12:20:00EUROPE GAS STRATEGY: €139 BLN
The main conclusion of the study was that reduction targets can be achieved even in a non-technology-specific scenario (Evolution) by using the networks. A GHG reduction of 55% by 2030 and 95% by 2050 (relative to 1990 levels) was achieved for the energy industry, buildings and industry €139 billion cheaper than in a highly regulated approach with electrification by means of heat pumps (Revolution).
2019, May, 13, 12:10:00HYDROGEN'S ENERGY DENCITY
Electricity has well known limitations, mainly for bulk and long-range transport, industrial processes requiring high temperature heat, and the chemicals industry. To entirely replace fossil fuels we need hydrogen. It has an energy density comparable to hydrocarbons. There’s more: Europe’s electric grid can’t cope with 100% electrification, yet hydrogen would use the existing gas pipe networks. The authors lay out a plan to deliver 50% of Europe’s energy from hydrogen by 2050. Done rapidly at scale, hydrogen would soon be as cheap as gas. It will also make Europe the hydrogen market leader: what technologies Europe (or anywhere!) masters first, it can sell to the rest of the world hungry for clean energy solutions.
2019, May, 8, 11:35:006 UNDERVALUED ENERGY STOCKS
Investors with a long-term horizons could give a look to Energy Industry. According a Value Line Report on Petroleum Industry, Oil Price above $50 a barrel provide some assurance that existing dividend will be maintained.
2019, May, 6, 11:25:00NORWAY'S FUND RETURNED 9.1%
The Government is allowing for the Government Pension Fund Global to be invested in unlisted renewable energy infrastructure under the dedicated environmental mandates. Such investments shall be subject to the same profitability and transparency requirements as the other investments of the Fund, says Siv Jensen, Minister of Finance.
2019, April, 29, 11:50:00MULTI TRILLION DOLLAR ENERGY MARKET
Most of the systems in the U.S. were constructed in the 50s and 60s and they had a life expectancy of 50 years. Today, almost all operate at maximum capacity and they are all stretched to the limit. With population growth, spiraling demand, changes in power generation and mandates for the use of clean and renewable energy sources, change must come quickly.
2019, April, 29, 11:25:00EUROPE'S NUCLEAR VALUE
The European nuclear industry sustains more than 1.1 million jobs in the EU and generates more than half a trillion euros in GDP, according to a new study by Deloitte released yesterday. The study was commissioned by the European nuclear trade association Foratom to assess the contribution of the nuclear sector to the overall economy of the EU28 both today and in 2050.
2019, April, 29, 11:10:00U.S. GDP UP 3.2%
U.S. Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the first quarter of 2019, according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter of 2018, real GDP increased 2.2 percent.
