20% renewable energy by 2020

Raising the share of renewable energy from 8.5% to 20% in the overall energy consumption is a necessary contribution to the global fight against climate change and towards better control over our energy dependence. The various uses of renewable energy are examined: electricity through wind and hydraulic energies; electricity or heat through geothermal and solar energies; electricity, heat, and biofuel coming from biomass. The EU is a world leader in the use and deployment of technologies that exploit renewable energy sources, providing over 350.000 jobs and an annual turn-over of € 30 billion.

Ugo Conti's Spider Boat - KQED QUEST
Time 09:12
Bay Area engineer Ugo Conti has sailed the world, but has always suffered from seasickness. A queasy stomach became his motivation to design "Proteus" -- a spider-like sea craft made for smoother sailing. He designed the Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel to cross the ocean while flexing with the movement of the waves. And it may change the way people take to the high seas.
Hybrid Solar Lighting
Time 05:18
A discovery channel segment on Sunlight Direct's fiber optic sunlight transport system.

Finavera Renewables' AquaBuOY

The AquaBuOY is a floating buoy structure that converts the kinetic energy of the vertical motion of oncoming waves into clean electricity.

Finavera Renewables Inc. is developing the technology, along with wind energy projects worldwide. Finavera Renewables Inc. is a publicly listed company (Toronto Venture Exchange, ticker symbol FVR) that is dedicated to developing clean, sustainable forms of electricity.

Inflatable Solar Collectors
Time 01:16 has a patented idea for inflatable solar collectors that are much cheaper than polished mirrors to concentrate sunlight onto Photovoltaic chips. Their design is 400x cheaper than polished aluminum mirrors, will withstand 130 mph winds, lasts a year, repairs with tape, takes 15 minutes to change out, costs $2 per balloon, or 18 cents per watt, compared to $5 per watt for conventional installations, and has a minimal effect on the ground underneath the array!

Solar Tower Energy

This is a demonstration video of solar tower technology. This technology could be used to separate hydrogen from water. Hydrogen could then be used to fuel automobiles using fuel cell technology which uses hydrogen as fuel.
This is the future project in Australia. It will be ready in 2012.

Solar Islands (TM)
Time 02:46
CSEM is developing a new concept for the large-scale transformation of solar energy into hydrogen and electricity at very low cost. The plan is to build large “Solar Islands” floating in the sea. These giant floating islands will be fitted with solar thermal panels which will convert solar energy into electricity and/or hydrogen.
CSEM started a project to design and built a first prototype of such a solar island. The aim of the project is to validate the concept and prepare the construction of large islands. The prototype will be built and tested in the desert of the United Arab Emirates. The project is funded by 5 mio US$ by the Gouvernment of the emirate Ras al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Please find more information on the Solar Islands website

Magenn Rotor Kite
Time 01:27
In the near future you will be able to generate electricity with Rotor kites. Much like windmills they are a renewable resource. The rotor also offers the convenience of portability.

Renewable Energy From the Deep Ocean

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) process and an ideal location in Puerto rico
Global warming and climate change are causing problems on planet earth. So how do we extract energy from earth systems in a more sustainable way? In this program we see deep ocean water (DOW)employed as a condenser in an amonia turbine energy cycle. Sustainable and renewable Energy from the sea via OTEC is a viable option for energy load systems. Additional applications of DOW in air conditioning, agriculture, and aquaculture has been successfully demonstrated.


Wave Power: How It Works
Time 0:54

A silent but informative introduction to how wave power works. The power in our seas is vast - and wave power is at an innovative stage. According to government and industry figures, wave and tidal power combined could meet 12.5 per cent of today's electricity demand - economically and practically - by 2025.It's an opportunity we can't afford to let slip.

Giant Sea Snake Renewable Electricity Generation
Time 02:13

Huge Energy Producing Machine From Wave Power. West Wave - Location Wave Hub, 10 miles off Hayle on north coast of Cornwall
Project scope Up to 7 Pelamis Wave Energy Converter, Turbine height 120-150 metres long
Total power Up to 5MW Status, Pre-planning

The West Wave Project would: Supply enough electricity for up to 3,000 homes
Displace around 11,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year
Ocean Prospect We are developing West Wave jointly with Ocean Prospect, a subsidiary of Wind Prospect.Wave Hub West Wave will be located at Wave Hub which is being developed by the South West Regional Development Agency. Wave Hub is effectively an underwater "socket" providing the necessary infrastructure to connect West Wave and 3 similar wave energy projects to the electricity grid. A planning application for Wave Hub was submitted in June 2006 and deployment is expected in 2008/09.
Pelamis West Wave will utilise Ocean Power Delivery's Pelamis Wave Energy Converter which is rated at 750kW. The Pelamis is 120-150 metres long, 3.5m in diameter and weighs approximately 750 tonnes.
