2019, June, 6, 14:50:00U.S. COAL IS CHEAPER
The new analysis finds that, on average, the levelised cost of electricity from the coal fleet is less than the levelised cost of new natural gas combined cycle (NGCC), new wind and new solar.
2019, June, 4, 15:30:00GERMANY'S RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY 47%
The German energy transition continues to gather pace, reaching a record 47 per cent of total electricity produced in the first five months of 2019, putting it well ahead of its target for 2025, which requires it to meet between 40 and 45 per cent of total electricity consumption from renewables.
2019, May, 30, 18:00:00NUCLEAR POWER INCREASING
During a panel discussion at the Breakthroughs: Flexible Nuclear Energy Systems in a Clean Energy World side event during CEM10, Rising said: "Action is needed to expand the share of nuclear generation in the clean energy future. We will need much more nuclear energy if we are to deliver on environmental, economic and sustainable development objectives."
2019, May, 30, 17:55:00GERMANY'S COAL IS MAIN
Electricity generated from Germany’s coal-fired plants declined by 46 million megawatthours (MWh) between 2000 and 2017, while electricity generated from wind and solar increased by 95 million MWh and 40 million MWh, respectively. Despite these changes, coal remains the main source of generation in Germany. Coal’s share of total generation declined from 50% in 2000 to 36% in 2017, despite slight increases in 2012 and 2013 that were related to Germany’s move away from nuclear power.
2019, May, 29, 11:15:00NUCLEAR POWER IS IMPORTANT
“Without an important contribution from nuclear power, the global energy transition will be that much harder,” said Dr Fatih Birol, the IEA’s Executive Director. “Alongside renewables, energy efficiency and other innovative technologies, nuclear can make a significant contribution to achieving sustainable energy goals and enhancing energy security.
2019, May, 29, 10:30:00PHILIPPINES RENEWABLE UP
In a market outlook report focused on the Philippines, analytics firm GlobalData said installed capacity was cued for an 11.2-percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2019 to 2030.

2019, May, 24, 09:55:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART FOUR.
The introduction of oxygen energy technologies will allow 3-5 times reduce the price of heat and electricity, which will expand the use of the benefits of electricity to virtually all people on Earth, regardless of their economic condition and their removal from the traditional onnyh energy sources.
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, 10:50:00SOME 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, 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.
