• Solar Power Revolution - Here Comes The Sun -- Documentary

    Countries all over the world are leading the way towards a green economy. Unfortunately lobbying by the oil, gas, coal and nuclear industries are hindering progress. Very soon, perhaps even now depending on the cost of electricity in your area, solar technology will be more economically cost effective than traditional forms of electrical production.

  • The breakthrough in renewable energy - (VPRO documentary - 2016)

    It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur. A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.

  • SOLAR REVOLUTION: THE ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION OF THE GLOBAL ENERGY INDUSTRY

    Solar energy will be the cheapest source of energy in nearly all markets and locations because PV (photovoltaic) cells can bypass the aging and fragile electricity grid and deliver its power to the end user, fundamentally changing the underlying economics of energy.  As the scale of PV production increases and costs continue to decline at historic rates, demand for PV electricity will outpace supply of systems for years to come. Yet, the shift from fossil fuels to solar energy will take place not because it is better for the environment or energy security, or because of some yet undeveloped technology; it is already occurring through decisions made by self interested energy users and all of these facts will impact us and be as transformative as the last century’s revolutions in energ...

    Michio Kaku: I believe in solar power, but there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency. Michio Kaku: Some people think that the time is right for the solar revolution, that one day solar power will replace oil and we'll all live in a world that is clean and renewable.  Well, not so fast.  I believe in solar power.  However, there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency.  The other one is lack of a storage facility like a battery.  That's' the weak link.  We simply don't have the efficiency of solar cells necessary to make it economical and competitive today, and the ability to store the energy for long periods of time when the sun is dark, when there are clouds and your solar panels don't work.So my point of view is this: I think...

  • Why solar power is spreading so fast in Africa

    Africans have been waiting for decades for the mains electricity which the rich world takes for granted. Sub-Saharan Africa’s 910m people consume less electricity each year than the 4.8m people of Alabama. Many more who are on the grid suffer brown-outs and dangerous surges in current. But a solar revolution is afoot. In 2009 just 1% of sub-Saharan Africans used solar lighting. Now it is nearly 5% or 11m people. The International Energy Agency, a Paris-based government think-tank, reckons that 500m more people will have solar electricity by 2030, Why is solar power spreading so fast in Africa? There are three main reasons. First, solar panel technology has improved. Efficiency gains and mass production mean that modern photovoltaic panels have plunged in price per watt – to around 30 ...

They had so much solar and wind energy that power prices actually went negative for a few hours, meaning commercial consumers were getting paid to consume electricity. This refutes claims by the US and other critics who say that a country can’t receive 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources. Germany has promised to transform its electricity supply to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.

Michio Kaku: I believe in solar power, but there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency. Michio Kaku: Some people think that the time is right for the solar revolution, that one day solar power will replace oil and we'll all live in a world that is clean and renewable.  Well, not so fast.  I believe in solar power.  However, there are problems that we have to face, and one of them is low efficiency.  The other one is lack of a storage facility like a battery.  That's' the weak link.  We simply don't have the efficiency of solar cells necessary to make it economical and competitive today, and the ability to store the energy for long periods of time when the sun is dark, when there are clouds and your solar panels don't work.So my point of view is this: I think in the coming decade, as oil prices start to rise and as the cost of wind and solar and renewables start to drop, the two currents will probably cross in maybe ten years.  So in ten years it will be the marketplace which then begins to drive the whole thing forward because of the dropping cost of solar cells and rising efficiency and the rising price of oil.  Now, why do I believe that oil prices will rise?  Because of something called Hubbert's Peak.  Hubbert was a Shell Oil engineer way back in the 1960s who predicted that we would hit the halfway point for the production of oil in the United States and after that the bell-shaped curve would curve the other way and we would become an importer of oil.  Well, people laughed at him because they said that, "Well, wait a minute.  We have Alaska.  We have Texas.  We have lots of oil fields, and so we're not going to hit the 50% point.  America will always export oil."  Well, wrong.  Hubbert hit it right on the nose to within the year at which US oil supplies peaked and then it went to the other side of the bell-shaped curve.  That's called Hubbert's Peak, when we hit the 50% point.  Now we know that Hubbard was right and the next big question is, are we hitting Hubbert's Peak for world oil production?  That is the $64,000 question.  Many people that I've talked to, senior oil analysts, energy analysts, say that we are either at Hubbert's Peak or within ten years of hitting Hubbert's Peak.  Now some people say, "Well that's stupid.  We discover new oil deposits all the time.  Look at Canada.  We have tar sands of Canada, right?"  Wrong.  It turns out that we will always have oil.  We will never run out of oil, except oil will become more expensive as we go down the other side of Hubbert's Peak.  We would have to discover a new Saudi Arabia every five to ten years in order for this curve to simply go on forever.  That's not going to happen.  I don't care how many tar sands you're talking about in Canada.  You're not going to create a new Saudi Arabia, which produces very clean, very cheap oil, oil that is prized by the oil companies because it is relatively less polluting and has tremendous amounts of profits associated with it.  So we do know that oil prices will fluctuate because of politics, but on average it will start to rise because we will be hitting Hubbert's Peak.  Meanwhile, solar power is going to become cheaper and in 10 years or so the two curves could actually cross, and in 20 years a new game changer arrives and that is fusion power.  The Europeans are betting the store on the ITER fusion reactor to be built outside Cadarache, France in Southern France, and if we have the power of the sun on the earth then sea water could drive all our machines.  So if this scenario plays out as I predict, it means that global warming could actually be a problem only for the next several decades as we enter the solar era and the fusion era.  The problem is we have already lofted so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and we will continue to do so for decades to come, that even before we enter the solar age and the fusion age we will have so much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that we will really screw up the weather.  But on a long-term basis I think that solar energy and fusion power will be the solution, the ultimate solution, for the greenhouse problem.  Directed / Produced byJonathan Fowler & Elizabeth Rodd

The International Energy Agency, a Paris-based government think-tank, reckons that 500m more people will have solar electricity by 2030, Why is solar power spreading so fast in Africa? There are three main reasons. First, solar panel technology has improved. Efficiency gains and mass production mean that modern photovoltaic panels have plunged in price per watt – to around 30 cents. Second, low-energy bulbs have got better and cheaper. Modern solar lamps cost as little as $8—they charge by day and give light by night. They replace costly and dangerous alternatives - Africans waste $10 billion a year on kerosene. Even worse are candles, open fires—or darkness, which hurts productivity and encourages crime. The third, crucial development is in storage, as lamps are needed at night and solar power is collected in the daytime. Old nickel cadmium batteries wore out after 500 recharges; lithium-based ones can manage 2,000 and store much more electricity Additionally, solar power is increasingly well-financed in Africa. Aid donors are sponsoring more ambitious projects – specially designed fridges and televisions, for example. Bigger solar systems can run a school or clinic, a grain mill or irrigation pump, or even a whole village. Some dismiss solar as a second-best solution. But conventional, centralised electrical grids have proved unreliable and inefficient in the past -- and solar is much better than nothing.

They have proven the best solution to global warming is 100-panel homes. In the next 20 years the majority of old gas fired homes will be destroyed by flood, hurricanes, earthquakes,wars & fires. By creating a policy now, to replace all homes lost to fires, etc., like the 1,800 homes lost last summer to the wildfires in Lake County, with 100 panel solar homes, we can move rapidly to stopping global warming. Who will be the first one to build a 100-panel solar home in Maine? Where Utilities are required to pay $0.33 kwh for solar, where is no cap on the amount of solar you can sell onto the grid, where there is no limit on the number of panels a home can have. Where you can make $2,000./mo. income from solar. Architects are designing beautiful new 100-panel solar homes for the Wells Reserve, Maine.

The Africa Progress Panel estimates that it may take until 2080 to connect all Africans to a centralised grid electricity system. In the absence of grid electricity, small-scale off-grid solar is undergoing huge growth across Africa. It’s a potential leapfrogging technology for sustainable development. On the shore of Lake Malawi, the Zayed Solar Academy is aiming to catapult Malawi onto the solar bandwagon.

Germany hit a new high in renewable energy generation Sunday. They had so much solar and wind energy that power prices actually went negative for a few hours, meaning commercial consumers were getting paid to consume electricity. This refutes claims by the US and other critics who say that a country can’t receive 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources. Germany has promised to transform its electricity supply to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050. We look at Germany’s renewable energy revolution on the Lip News with Mark Sovel and Elliot Hill. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3584461/Germany-PAYS-people-use-electricity-Excess-energy-created-wind-solar-power-meant-consumers-profit-prices-driven-low-went-NEGATIVE.html Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Nro9kJ4puI&index=1&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&nohtml5=False The Journalists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8leThywjbw&index=1&list=PLC937B599FD2B8241&nohtml5=False CRIME TIME clips playlist – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e21SzO1XEVw&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv&index=1&nohtml5=False BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAtgk6rZGmw&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL&index=1&nohtml5=False MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8QiHbI-YYY&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=1&nohtml5=False http://www.thelip.tv https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv
