Energy efficiency and more and more use of renewable energy sources is the only mantra to survive the rough tide, which asks us to seek newer ways to cut down on our energy needs and suggest innovative ideas to gain energy efficiency. Wind energy undeniably is one such renewable energy source that needs to be exploited more and more to realize a greener future.
With the increasing awareness regarding the need to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, more and more people are installing eco-friendly equipments and using eco-friendly mechanisms in their house.
The Department of Defense (DOD) in United States have some of the world’s best means of producing renewable energy. If common masses of America could adopt these methods, then in no time America can become one of the first energy independent nations of the world. According to a charity group called Pew Charitable Trusts, by 2025, the DOD has plans of supplying at least 25 percent of their energy through renewable sources and highly emphasizes on using cleaner sources of energy for saving money as well as increasing national security.
Home building methods have been developing to become better for the environment. People who are ecologically conscious wish to construct their houses in a greener way that consumes lesser energy and take fewer resources. Modern methods include a variety of building techniques through which houses can get to become more eco-friendly. Let us see how these techniques work and make your house environment-friendly.
Farming is usually associated with rural landscape. It needs large area to plant crops. With world population increasing at a fast pace, where would we the area to grow crops in future. How will so many people be fed? Vertical farming is the answer to all this. In vertical farming, plants (or animals) are cultivated vertically in skyscrapers. This will solve the problem of space crunch. Massive greenhouse skyscrapers can feed thousands of people.
You would know the general facts about wind power that make it a good alternative source of energy to replace non-recyclable energy sources. When zero-pollution energy is talked about, you would first think of wind power. But, there are certain incredible facts about wind energy that you might not be aware of. Check out what these are and why there is a need to know about them.
It is the time of water power technology that uses water to receive energy in several different ways. You may find H2O batteries that supply power using specially formulated alloys (one of these being positive and one negative). When these alloys are submerged in water, energy is produced. You may just replenish water in these batteries when its level gets lower. If these batteries are not to be used for some time, you won’t have to do much—just remove the water and dry them to be used later when required. Even though the water power technology is newer, there are several gadgets that receive its power form water. Check out [...]
Do you know how green technology is going to revolutionize the entire world in near future? Well, researchers have been coming up with more and more environment-friendly robots in order to facilitate several important tasks of human. Here are five of them:
The future of harnessing wind energy to produce electricity seems bright as many countries all over the world have started to put effort in producing electricity out of wind energy. Wind energy is not only a clean source of producing electricity, but it is also renewable. Although the future development of wind energy will mostly take place in offshore areas; however, if the cost of this energy production can be reduced, then it can prove to be of great benefit for a large number of people of the world.
Every hour sun beams enough energy to satisfy all the energy needed by people on earth. Technology used to harness solar energy has its roots in early space programmes of America, when it launched solar powered satellites into space. Now, this technology produces green power to satiate the energy needs of many countries. Solar power is now used to generate electricity to light our homes and streets, heat water, air-condition our homes, and many more things. Though it is very clean technology, but is not very popular worldwide. Many countries are leading the world in tapping this energy resource. These countries offer support to this technology and have in place [...]
