Viaducts with wind turbines claimed as new source of energy generation 6.7.2015 DNA: India
Trying out new ways to generate electricity, scientists now claim that wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. After their calculations that were promoted by a Canarian company ZECSA, European researchers confirm that this concept can be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new construction limitations. Researcher Oscar Soto said that as it is natural, the more surface that is swiped by the rotor, the more power can be produced. However, it was seen that in small turbines the power rate per square meter was higher. If only produced power was evaluated, the best solutions would be the installation of two wind turbines with different sizes in order to embrace the maximum available space or even a matrix of 24 small turbines due to their power production per surface unit and low weight, but concerning to viability, the best option is the one which includes two medium sized wind turbines. Results confirm that each ...

How can wind energy and Africa’s vultures co-exist? 6.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
Wind farms are one of the solutions to Africa’s energy crisis, but they have the potential to jeopardise threatened bird species such as eagles and vultures Many people see wind energy as one of the key solutions to meeting Africa’s growing energy demand and mitigating climate change. As a result, wind farms are already under construction or are being planned in many countries across sub-Saharan Africa. But wind farms can pose real threats to bird species, and they have the potential to jeopardise threatened bird populations. So far, the biggest impact of inappropriately sited wind turbines has been on populations of large birds of prey , in particular eagles and vultures. In some extreme cases turbines have led to the death of hundreds of the birds as they collide with the turning ...

All eyes now on Paris conference 5.7.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
What is charitably referred to as “dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system” in the text of the United Nations UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, is in reality an act of industrial warfare against climate and its allied ecosystem whose impact has become glaring. Its continued relevance for the communities of shared fate and global order is linked to the decision by the richest countries to undergo mandatory de-addiction. But for long these countries have adopted an ostrich-like policy. They are planning to deal with fossil-fuel addiction by the 2100, 85 years from now. Ahead of the Paris climate meeting by the end of 2015, when the world's biggest polluter, China, submitted its voluntary Intended Nationally Determined Con-tributions to the Secretariat of UNFCCC, comparisons between similar commitments by USA and EU have occupied centre stage. China aims to achieve the peaking of carbon dioxide emissions around 2030. It plans to lower Co2 emissions per unit of GDP by 60 to 65 ...

Ministry to come up with blueprint for 24/7 electricity 5.7.2015 deccanherald.com
The Ministry of Power is working on a blueprint to implement one of the key NDA promises of 24/7 power to each household. The blueprint, titled "power to all", will have tailor-made plans for each states with priority on green energy. The report will be ready by December and will consider each state's capacity to generate and distribute power to consumers without interruption, a Power Ministry official said. A high-level panel headed by former Power Secretary P K Pujari has begun discussions with all stakeholders, including states, on strengthening loss making Power Distributing Companies (discoms). The ministry has also hired services of private agencies with power and financial restructuring expertise. The report will call the states to increase power generation through green energy sources like solar, wind and hydro and improve energy efficiency by cutting out pilferage. Reports on reviving the discoms will be prepared with each state's needs, while the blueprint as a whole will rectify mistakes made ...
