This talk will cover the fundamentals, individual opportunities, challenges and limitations of each of the seven major clean, renewable energies: solar, wind, hydro, biomass, ocean (tidal, and wave), and geothermal.
In his inaugural address on January 20 this year, President Barack Obama re-affirmed his new Administrationâ??s commitment to address climate change through additional development of renewable energy. A key passage of the speech reads: â??We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories.â??
The plan is to invest in alternative and renewable energy, reduce demand for foreign oil, address climate change and create millions of new jobs.? The Obama â??New Energy for America planâ?? aims to help create five million new jobs by strategically investing US $150 billion over the next decade, ensure 10% of US electricity comes from renewable sources by 2012, and 25% by 2025 and implement an economy-wide cap-and-trade scheme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050.
Some topics covered will be concentrating solar power systems, thin film solar PV cells, biomass and biofuels, wind turbines, hydroelectric power, ocean thermal energy and ocean mechanical energy from tides and waves, and geothermal heat and electricity.
The talk will also cover briefly the global emissionâ??s Kyoto Protocol, and the California Solar Initiative.
