end of text: US department of energy. (2012). 2012 Renewable Energy Data Book. Retrieved from http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy14osti/60197.pdf


in:  (US department of energy, 2012, p. xx) 

key stats:

- The installed global renewable electricity* capacity doubled between 2000 and 

2012, and represents a significant and growing portion of the total energy supply both
globally and in the United States. p1

 

-Wind energy accounted for about 75% of newly installed U.S. renewable electricity 

capacity in 2012.p 11

 

-Graph shows that in 2012 hydro power was producing the most electricity.

in text: Miller (1983)  - (Miller, 1983, p. xx)

 

End of text:

Miller, S. (1983). Renewable energy. What are its environmental side effects?, 75A–75A. doi:10.1021/es00108a718

 

Key Ideas:

Focus mainly on solar energy.

Was a national study – the least renewable (biomass) ranked the highest for efficiency but environmental impact.75a.

The best at energy output turned out to be the worst in environmental impact. 75A.

Renewable Energy: Not Cheap, Not "Green"

Luke Cotter's insight:

Bradley, R. L. (1997). Policy Analysis. Renewable Energy: Not Cheap, Not "Green",1(280). Retrieved from http://www.cato.org/pubs/pas/pa-280.html

 

 

Key Ideas

- Suggest from the start it does not work.

- most environmental every sources still come under environmental fire e.g. solar = over development of dessert wildlife area.

- It needs extra land and materials.

- The cumulative taxpayer and ratepayer investment in the alternatives listed is substantial. The DOE has spent approximately $19 billion since its inception on electricity conservation. In the US

- economic and environmental advances in the fossil-fuels industry, particularly in the use of natural gas in electricity generation and reformulated gasoline in transportation, [4] have reduced the environmental costs of fossil-fuel consumption necessary to justify subsidised alternatives to fossil fuels.

- Energy markets are so riddled with imperfections.

- Great cost on sorceresses.
