The development of clean energy is an increasingly tangible reality in different countries around the globe. Believing in the not too distant future the entire planet’s electricity could be produced without the use of fossil fuels, countries like the United States recently announced its plan to incorporate new technologies and so develop more alternative sources.
In line with these proposals, the protagonist is now Uruguay, which made ??further announcements regarding the production of clean energy. The government’s goal is to advance the development model to arrive at 2015 with 50 percent of its electricity from renewable energy.
To comply with the proposal in just four years the country would be carrying out the goal of the Energy Policy 2015-2030, which states that 50 percent of total energy matrix should come from renewable sources.
Other initiatives set forth in this program include the treatment of 30 percent of aggro-industrial and urban waste to generate energy, a 15 percent reduction in oil consumption of transport and that the scope of electricity within the country is a 100 percent.
As explained from Discover the Verde, the immediate projects to achieve the increased power of this type consist of the installation of wind farms, which come to provide a total of 500 MW. This is an important advance in clean production. Energy efficiency is becoming a priority in the agenda of many countries, this being beneficial to the environment and social and economic development locally and globally.
Representatives of the company Enarsa decided advance in the realization of a poryecto designed to enable in this city a center of study and development of renewable energy. In principle, participate in the development of the proposed addition to the local municipality and local universities Enarsa with six companies in Argentina, Latin America and Europe.
In this sense, it made the filing Tuesday of studies conducted by the listed firms for the implementation of wind farms in the Corridor area Achiras-Villa Maria. The research took shape after the Province of Córdoba progressed into an agreement with Enarsa on joint action to determine the quality of the winds and the feasibility of development investments.
It must be said that companies participating in this initiative are Bibi, of Argentina; Gralco, also of Argentina, but with Italian technology; Alusa Brazil; Radiotromix-Ezentis Wpd Spain and in Germany. It is noteworthy that the sum of proposals would generate 260 megawatts Achiras with an investment of 560 million dollars and 4 to 6 megawatts for the city of Villa María.
In the local case, we evaluate the utility is for scientific and technological development for both students and professionals involved ara Center for the Study and Development of Renewable Energies.
“In less than ten years i.e. in 2018, the incorporation of energy efficient devices could slow the growth of electricity demand, achieving reductions in the order of 600 megawatts (MW),” said the Directorate General for Energy Efficiency (DGSE), Ministry of Energy and Mines of Peru (MEM).
The head of the DGSE, Luis Hero, said this would not be the only benefit, as this would also avoid the emission of 35 million tons of greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels for electricity generation.
And is that because the country’s energy supply by 73% dependent on fossil fuels such as oil (51%), natural gas liquids (17%) and coal (5%), which are being looking not only pollutants but also expensive because they depend on international prices, the DGSE has designed a plan to boost renewable energy sources and energy efficiency.
He explained that energy efficiency itself constitutes a new source of energy as to reduce the volume of current consumption would also reduce the amount invested to import oil.
That is why he said Hero Azalea, projected that the sector as part of an ongoing process to improve the activities related to the generation / production, transportation, processing, distribution, marketing and use of energy sources over the next eight years could reduce national energy consumption by 15%.
“Making a calculation based on current, we can see that the annual savings to be gained in 10 years would be approximately 5 000 300 million U.S. dollars, with an estimated investment of 670 million U.S. dollars (an approximate ratio of 8 to 1)” said the head of the DGSE noting that the benefits go to the care of the environment.
