Low Energy & LED Lighting Efficiency Energy

Low Energy & LED Lighting  Efficiency Energy | Energy crisis in Australia | Scoop.it

LED low cost lighting for your home, reduce lighting costs by 90%.LEDs are by far the most energy efficient way of lighting your home or business and are comparatively very cheap to run. Commercial premises can save a small fortune every year on lighting as well improving the energy efficiency rating of the property. This is particularly helpful to landlords trying to improve the EPC rating of a building.

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be converted from one form to another. One eco-friendly way to covert energy not widely in use is tidal power generation.

Exclusive: Pioneering scientists turn fresh air into petrol in massive boost in fight against energy crisis | Energy crisis in Australia | Scoop.it
A small British company has produced the first "petrol from air" using a revolutionary technology that promises to solve the energy crisis as well as helping to curb global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Moonsoo Han's insight:

If they can find a mass produce method, it will be a major technological breakthrough. If the new petrol is cheaper than old one, everybody want to use it because it can use for gasoline engine. It can also help the nature.

US shale oil threatens to derail OPEC's future

Al Picozzi's curator insight, September 11, 2013 3:10 PM

The rise of the US in producing oil, especailly shale oil,  coupled with the difficulties of OPEC countries in actually producing the oil my lead to lower demand for foregin oil in the US.  From someone who remembers the gas lines of the 70s this is a great development.  It also can mean new jobs in a new industry.  Question is how long can this resource last, and what are the evironmental impacts of this new technology?

Toyota Hydogen fuel cars could be available earlier than thought.

The first British hydrogen filling station for public use has now been opened in Swindon Wiltshire and is located at the giant Honda factory near South Marston. The new site will be open to the public although it is within the grounds of the Honda car factory.

This is the very first step on the road towards attracting hydrogen cell cars to the UK. The single pump will be able to fill fuel cell and any other hydrogen cars with a gas based hydrogen although any members of the public will have to pass a BOC safety course before been able to fill their hydrogen cars.

The new fuel cell vehicles will be able to get their electricity from an electrochemical between oxygen and hydrogen which will generate a current. The only wastes that are omitted are water vapour and heat making the cars extremely environmental friendly.

The new cars from Toyota are expected to be in use in the USA by as near as 2015, which is much earlier than thought before. In my opinion this technology will be a winner, because eventually the motorist will be able to travel just as far as a conventional gasoline car without having to have the time consuming inconvenience of have to charge up the battery for the return journey. That’s of course unless the present battery technology is not significantly modified.

Other car makers have also shown more than interest in the hydrogen powered car, they are Honda of course and Hyundai as well as Toyota, who’s hydrogen cars are expected to be able to a range of about 300 miles from a full tank and the fuel will only take three or four minutes to fill the tank.

The USA are at the forefront of supplying  hydrogen fuel cell car filling stations, with 68 stations stretching from San Diego to San Francisco, with a further 20 new filling stations to be built by 2015.   

The new Toyota car is expected to be called the FV2 and will be made including all the latest IT technology making the car a real stunner. Another Toyota model will be known as the i-road and will be a three wheeler city car, this car is well advanced and will be having trials in several cities from Japan to France this year (2014)

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. I worked for a couple of national tyre companies before starting my first business. I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business.

Now, researchers at the University of Georgia have found a way to transform the carbon dioxide trapped in the atmosphere into useful industrial products. Their discovery may soon lead to the creation of biofuels made directly from the carbon dioxide in the air that is responsible for trapping the sun's rays and raising global temperatures.

Peter A Bell's curator insight, May 13, 2013 2:18 AM

There is a strange kind of irony in the fact that the very parties responsible for the general distrust of politicians among the public then latch on to that distrust in an effort to discredit a politician from a party that has, at least relative to the British parties, been a model of probity.


We are urged - by politicians, no less - to dismiss what Fergus Ewing says for no better reason than that he is a politician. Anybody else spot the problem with that?


But, of course, it is not only Fergus Ewing who is saying that there is more oil left than the British parties would have us believe. Determining potential oil reserves is notoriously difficult. But while those whose political agenda is served by denigrating Scotland's prospects insist on the lowest estimates, it isn't that difficult to find experts whose forecasts tally with those of Fergus Ewing.

This increasing concern over the accounting/fate of the oil and dispersant is welcome, albeit a bit late in my opinion.  My group and others have tried to emphasize the true impact of the blowout would be on ecosystem-level properties in the mid and deep waters.

Here is hoping that we can foster a moer holistic review of the hydrocarbon fate and effects from the 2010 disaster.
