Modern slavery

Renewable energy could brake the grid chains

Slaves were chained together so that if one tried to escape, it would not be as easy. He would need the whole group to escape with him. And it would be very slow. Slaves power was needed. Today we need energy for the machines that have taken the place of the “live force” – animal & human. But it seems that all of us are chained by the invisible and mighty chain called “grid” and “stations”.

To burn our own house

Green

There is a place on Earth that is 100% powered by renewable energy sources – the three atolls of Tokelau.
Previously the island country was powered by shipping in thousands of barrels of diesel fuel. According to PowerSmart, the New Zealand based company that installed the Tokelau Renewable Energy Project, diesel generators were burning around 200 liters of fuel daily on each atoll, meaning more than 2,000 barrels of diesel were used to generate electricity in Tokelau each year.

The energy of cash

Does energy controls money or not

In physics, energy is understood as the ability of a physical system to do work on other physical systems but despite of such explanations there is no complete understanding of what energy is.
According to the law of conservation of energy, energy can neither be created nor destroyed by itself. It can only be transformed.

We often use power as a synonym of energy. Power is not a complete synonym but mostly refers to the conversion rate regarding the above mentioned law.

My life, my energy, my responsibility

Energy connections

My energy is my life. When my power is over I‘ll die. I know that it will happen some day, but I’m not going to give up easy. I’ll move and struggle for life till the end. I will squeeze the last drop of energy from this body before leaving it to the ground.

But I am careful. As I am sure about the ground, I’m not in a hurry to lay there before the time has come. Some people may call me lazy or selfish, or slow, but the truth is that I care about stress and do not want to spill energy on concerns outside my family and friends, because my life is short enough to have too many.
