Renewable energy facts
« on: February 21, 2015, 10:37:08 AM »
Renewable energy sources can meet many times the present world energy demand, so their potential is enormous. They can enhance diversity in energy supply markets, secure long-term sustainable energy supplies, and reduce local and global atmospheric emissions. They can also provide commercially attractive options to meet specific needs for energy services (particularly in developing countries and rural areas), create new employment opportunities, and offer possibilities for local manufacturing of equipment.
There are many renewable technologies. Although often commercially available, most are still at an early stage of development and not technically mature. They demand continuing research, development, and demonstration efforts. In addition, few renewable energy technologies can compete with conventional fuels on cost, except in some niche markets. But substantial cost reductions can be achieved for most renewables, closing gaps and making them more competitive. That will require further technology development and market deployment—and boosting production capacities to mass production

The biggest problem is too few of us in general are actively giving one single
thought  about conserving.....too many are recklessly wasting what we have
as they think about "the Big Breakthrough" where solar cells will be near 100%
effecient....windpower from a small windmill will provide most of the power
we need for a family .......alll BS .

Lot of common sense things like just conserving water that just about any homeowner living in an old home or trailer subject to pipes freezing in the winter
...well true you can use electrical heating tape and wrap around insulation on the pipes but even if that doesn't quite work a trickle of water running into the bathtub at night with the drain plugged.....then during the day  dip a
bucket of water from the tub to flush the toilet ......which some wouldn't even think of ??
