Solar energy oil painting – one more picture in the gallery

Renewable energy roadmap for Saudi Arabia

According to officially published roadmap, Saudi Arabia, the world’s number one oil exporter, aims to install 23.9 GW of renewable power capacity by 2020 and 54.1 GW by 2032.

Most of the renewable energy needed, the kingdom seeks from the solar technologies, but the door is wide open for other free energy sources – wind, geothermal, waste.

Join the army of renewable power if you cannot beat it!

Wind could fight the oil

Few decades ago, renewable energy was in the middle of many local fights. Bespattered, rejected and neglected, the cause found political support and the war with the fossils became a World War.
The most valuable asset in any war is time and as Sun Tzu has wrote, several centuries ago, in “The Art of War”: “If you sit by the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy float by”.

The North Star – Renewable energy future guide

When wind energy was used as a main power to explore the world, there was a guiding light to those who sailed across the oceans – the Northern star; never changing position and showing the right direction. Now we have enough technology to find a pin in the desert and that’s why we’ve probably have lost our connection with the guiding light of the stars.

Today, there is a reason to look to the north. Not above but amongst us.

Men, women, energy and an energy union

The Council of European Energy Regulators was established in 2000 aiming at creation of a single, competitive, efficient and sustainable internal energy market. It is a not-for-profit association that is closely linked to the European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators. They share similar objectives, so let’s define what sustainable development is in energy case.
