Time and energy – dust in the wind

Nature and wind

Time – a dimension, measuring past, present and future, a dimension that determines our existence, firmly connected with all of our countable wealth and heart of all our emotions as it separates them, is something that is not so often put as an argument in energy disputes. Analysts, manufacturers, decision makers, governments are talking mostly about money and funds but not time. There is a lovely quote from Kansas’ song that comes to mind when thinking about this:

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

The old and heavy alectricity construcions

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.
