Time and energy – dust in the 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.

Renewable energy governance

Renewable energy governance is a matter of different systems and support actions. Leaders of all countries and states on all continents are willing to encourage the implementation of renewable resource systems but each zone has its regional approach of promoting and supporting these actions.  Key decision making and planning bodies are listed here.

The International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) – A voluntary framework for cooperation between energy regulators from around the globe.
The Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker – Information for advanced energy legislation across all 50 States of America for free to any user.
