• 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.

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...

  • SPaRC’ing a Revolution

    The use of solar panels to power irrigation pumps in India has trebled in recent years. While providing a cleaner energy source than diesel pumps, this “free” energy could lead to unsustainable groundwater extraction. By giving farmers the opportunity to sell excess solar electricity back to the grid under a scheme called SPaRC, IWMI experts hope it will encourage them to pump only the water they need. The buy-back scheme could also protect farm incomes in the event of crop failure, and if adopted widely, help relieve pressure on the state’s overburdened electricity board. This project is supported by the CGIAR Research Programs on Water, Land and Ecosystems and Climate Change and Food Security. https://wle.cgiar.org | https://ccafs.cgiar.org Related story: http://bit.ly/1Fcp5IS

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

If you own a home you could have a major impact on climate collapse, by selling your home, and building a 100-panel solar home. Europe now has 90 K 100-panel solar homes. 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.

A new report by the IEA documents the rapid expansion of solar power generation around the world and notes China's current dominance of the market. To subscribe to DeSmog Youtube videos click here: https://www.youtube.com/user/DesmogBlog?sub_confirmation=1 The growth of solar energy continues to outpace forecasts and this growth, according to a report published today by the International Energy Agency, “is a China story.” While China today is far and away the global leader in solar generation, a decade ago, the country had just 100 megawatts of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity installed. That’s nothing. For reference, it’s actually less than is currently installed in the city of San Antonio. By the end of 2016, China had increased its solar PV capacity by nearly 800 times, with more than 77 gigawatts currently installed. China’s solar dominance is only going to keep growing, according to the IEA report. As Dr. Paolo Frankl, one of the lead authors on the report, said on a call to reporters, “In one year, China will install the equivalent of the total history of solar development in Germany.” The stunning growth trajectories reflected in the IEA report show how quickly the transition to renewables can surge when aggressive policies cut through the barriers to growth. The Renewables 2017 report takes a deep dive into renewable energy deployment across all industries and throughout the world, but the dominance of solar PV stands out. As a whole, renewables represented nearly two-thirds of new electricity capacity additions last year, far outshining coal and natural gas growth. For the very first time, solar PV additions grew faster than any other resource, surpassing coal growth.
