Renewable Energy + Clean Power in Europe [Infographic]

Renewable Energy + Clean Power in Europe [Infographic] | EuroPower | Scoop.it

Germany has become more than just a leader in standard renewable energy uptake; it is making a play for commercial leadership and technological primacy in the increasingly competitive global renewable energy business.

Companies understand their customers want to see more renewable energy in action, and German regulators understand that they need to find ways to put more renewable energy, including wind power, onto the grid to replace planned coal and nuclear power plant retirements.

In the continental context, the EU is preparing to release its latest communication on an integrated energy market ahead of a goal of operational integration it has set for 2014.

Europe is Building the Most Powerful Laser to Zap Nuclear Waste

Europe is Building the Most Powerful Laser to Zap Nuclear Waste | EuroPower | Scoop.it

The European Union will spend about 700 million euros ($900 million) to build the world’s most powerful lasers, technology that could destroy nuclear waste and provide new cancer treatments. The Extreme Light Infrastructure project has obtained funding for two lasers to be built in the Czech Republic and Romania, Shirin Wheeler, spokeswoman for the European Commission on regional policy, said in a phone interview. A third research center will be in Hungary.

 

The lasers are 10 times more powerful than any yet built and will be strong enough to create subatomic particles in a vacuum, similar to conditions that may have followed the start of the universe. Eventually, the power of the light beams could be used to deteriorate the radioactivity of nuclear waste in just a few seconds and target cancerous tumors, the projects’s Romanian coordinator Nicolae-Victor Zamfir said in an interview. The Magurele research center, where the Romanian laser will be located, will consume about 10 megawatts of energy, enough to supply about 2,500 average U.S. households. Most of it will come from geothermal pumps installed at the site, where the laser is expected to become operational in 2017.
