All sides of politics agree that a German-style national feed-in tariff to encourage rooftop solar power makes sense. But Christine Milne’s bill to create the tariff is going nowhere. PETER MARES explains why on our partner website, Inside Story.
Alternative energy comprises renewable sources of energy (hydro; biomass; wind; geothermal; solar, which includes [concentrating solar power]; and ocean sources, comprising tidal, wave, marine currents, ocean thermal energy and tapping the salt gradient), nuclear power, and waste. The use of renewable sources of energy can...
Solar power enhances energy diversity and hedges against price volatility of fossil fuels, thus stabilising costs of electricity generation in the long term, argues this report.
Solar energy is widely available throughout the world and can contribute to reduced dependence on...
A life cycle analysis report commissioned by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) has found that electric vehicles (EVs) are better for the New Zealand environment than petrol or diesel powered vehicles, across the lifecycle of the vehicle as well as in use....
This report compares the effect of increasing the number of wind turbine generators on wholesale spot prices in the Australian National Electricity Market’s (NEM) under the existing transmission grid and an augmented version of the transmission grid called NEMLink.
Our Reef 2050 Long Term Sustainability Plan is the most comprehensive plan ever developed to protect the Great Barrier Reef for future generations. The Coalition has put in place an historic ban on capital dredge disposal in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park – ending...
Increasing economies of scale, more competitive supply chains and further technological improvements will continue reducing the costs of solar and wind power. The same factors will also boost the availability of these key renewable power sources at night and in varying weather conditions.
Australia’s national energy landscape has been transformed since the creation of the National Electricity Market two decades ago. The rapid uptake of renewable technology and leaps forward in energy efficiency and storage have been game changers for generators, distributors, retailers and consumers of electricity. If...
Reduction of the dependence of modern society on fossil fuels is urgent. Electric power from wind and solar energy can be stored in a rechargeable battery. What is needed to reduce greenhouse gases is a safe, low-cost rechargeable battery with a high volumetric energy density...
This paper presents a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model using ANSYS FLUENT 15.0 for phase change material (PCM) in a vertical triplex tube thermal energy storage system and its validation through experimental results.
