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.
With the assistance of some 80 people took place in Tomcod Forum seminar in Chile mega hydroelectric real “alternative for a sustainable future? Whose main conclusion is that the country needs to develop alternative energy generation, which is not only based on water.
Juan Pablo Oregon, coordinator of the campaign Ecosystems and Patagonia without dams, Chile explained that currently requires a sustainable energy policy with a strong foundation for energy efficiency, which is cheap and attainable. It is therefore important to create a level playing field between different energy sources.
For his part, Roberto Roman engineer who discussed current developments in the energy matrix and the alternatives to mega-dams and power plants, said the trends in the world “takes over” intelligent network is the means that the claims are dynamically modulated to maximize resources and also have low emissions.
In this framework, also developed a forum on citizen and indigenous experiences of those affected by the energy mega projects and institutional responses, in which one of the panelists was Irene Romero Milieus Community Council, who explained that his community is planning a geothermal affect them seriously.
