So what is safe and clean energy really all about? The following report includes some fascinating information about safe and clean energy–info you can use, not just the old stuff they used to tell you.
Solar is comically unsuitable for baseline power generation. Even forgetting it’s 4X or more expensive than traditional power, you have the problems of energy storage and generation. Solar panels — whether photovoltaic or thin-film — are primarily a glass product.
Clean energy technologies are committed to offering revolutionary, green alternatives to conventional energy sources. The approach to energy is no longer synonymous with pollution.
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.
Fuel cell technology is a particularly important enabler for biomass utilisation offering high efficiencies of conversion in fairly small unit sizes and is essential to the new distributed energy economy. Fuel cells can then convert hydrogen to electrical energy to power anything from vehicles and homes to electronic devices.
The company seeks to achieve capital appreciation primarily through making privately negotiated acquisitions of interest (principally equity but also equity-related and subordinated or mezzanine debt securities) in both projects and companies, which own assets or which participate in the clean energy sector and through the generation and commercialization of carbon credits derived from these projects.
Solar customers typically use sonar-like time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) to measure molecular contaminants other techniques may miss. The “echo” from an ionic beam projected onto the substrate reveals the presence of oils, particles and residues. Solar made large gains, recording growth of 49 percent to reach total investment of $33.5 billion. Geothermal was the highest growth sector, with investment up 149 percent to $2.2 billion, but bio fuels dropped by 9 percent to $16.9 billion.
Is there really any information about safe and clean energy that is nonessential? We all see things from different angles, so something relatively insignificant to one may be crucial to another.
