Bioenergy, forests and carbon sinks – Bioenergy explained

Renewable Energy No Comments »

This video sheds light on where biomass used for bioenergy comes from. The industry makes use of residue and wood that cannot be used in other sectors as a source of energy.

As part of sustainable forest management, bioenergy provides energy, rural development, GHG emission reductions and increased forest resilience.

Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

Renewable Energy No Comments »

BECCS, or Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage, is a technology that the IPCC has factored into their climate modelling. If it is to have the effect of keeping their models to well below 2 degrees Celsius of warming compared to pre-industrial levels then it will need to be implemented on a vast scale around the globe.
This week we take a snapshot of scientific and journalistic analysis of this controversial proposal.

Is offshore wind the energy of the future?

Alternative Energy No Comments »

Offshore wind farms solve one of renewable energy’s biggest problems: unreliability. With wind almost always blowing on sea, there is no lack of power. But the technology is struggling with a bunch of other hurdles.

We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our new channel Planet A explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.

5 types of Renewable Energy including solar,wind,ocean,hydroelectric and geothermal energy.

Science Standard: S6E6 a. Ask questions to determine the differences between renewable/sustainable energy resources (examples: hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, biomass) and nonrenewable energyresources and how they are used in our everyday lives.

The  Water Turbine -Build Tutorial v1.0

This free and open source turbine can be built for half the cost of a 120 watt solar panel, and will produce about ten times the power (5kWh with 3m drop and 35 l/s flow) per day. It can be plugged into any appropriate waterway without the need for earthworks, and uses only basic off the shelf and recycled materials, and simple hand tools.

Details on materials, tools, and step by step build instructions are available (free) at:

This is what's REALLY holding back wind and solar

Alternative Energy No Comments »

Building solar farms and wind parks is one thing. Plugging them into the grid is another. How does our power system need to change to cope with more renewables?

Onboard the innovative floating tidal energy project in Nova Scotia

Alternative Energy No Comments »

Harnessing the power of the highest tides in the world produced by Canada’s Bay of Fundy has been a major engineering challenge. Sustainable Marine just did it, and they’re now selling tidal energy to the Nova Scotia government. The Weather Network was invited out to tour the floating platform to get a first hand look at the next gen technology just off Westport, Nova Scotia.
