Future Technologies - Energy Preservation

by Anuja Yadav on 19th January, 2013 at 4:20 PM CEST

When the world awakes to the reality of energy preservation; there will be no dark nights for centuries to come. 

Some vital stats on energy: 

Several energy summits and forums years ago, the world started with a big bang. Nuclear energy reactions marked the genesis of life in its unique form that we see today. Stephen Hawking quoted “I would like nuclear fusion to become a practical power source. It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming.” Source: BP Statistical Review of World Energy 

And here are some interesting findings on nuclear fusion. lt might be a distant dream, but how commercially viable this project will be would require popular support and immense ideation. 

For the uninitiated, energy sources have been classified into renewable and non renewable. Non renewable sources of energy cannot be replaced once they are used up. Example: Oil, coal, gas, uranium. On the other hand, renewable sources of energy can be replaced. Example: Soil, wind, water, sunlight. Hence, there is an ever-increasing focus on building renewable sources of energy. Here’s a short video on the renewable sources of energy: 

Solar energy is one of the most promising sources of energy. Harnessing solar energy is quite a challenge though. From photovoltaic cells to solar cars and solar panels, a lot of devices operate on solar energy and this has created world-wide interest in further developing this technology of the future. 

Oceans cover over 70% of earth’s surface. Marine energy potential is immense. The Ocean Energy Council lists 5 sources of renewable ocean energy: 

1. Tidal Energy 

2. Offshore wind energy 

3. OTEC Energy 

4. Wave Energy 

5. Ocean Current Energy 

Despite huge potential, marine energy constitutes a minuscule part of our energy palette. Extensive research is still underway to tap into this powerhouse of energy. 

With over 199,064 wind turbines in the world by the end of 2011, wind farms are under construction the world over to supply clean energy. Some of the biggest wind turbines have been listed out.

Electricity is not only vital to our existence; it marked the beginning of a new era of industrialization. The story behind how electricity was found and created is equally interesting: 

More government incentives towards clean, renewable power technology will help establish renewable energy generation in the long run. Mass mobilisation towards renewable energy sources and commercialisation of clean technology will help in faster adoption of this technology. 

To sum it all up, energy preservation is not only a responsibility, it’s the only means for sustainability. 

With the latest technological trends and the global clamour for sustainability, how do you envision the future of work in Eastern Europe in the coming decades? Join C:F Competitions 2013 and share your ideas on The Future of Work! Your supersonic ideas could become the next big thing!

Actually Bro ... nice writing skills you have shown but sorry technologically its a badly written. You have mentioned Fusion which is talked since a long time ago and still the technology is very very expensive and still not sure either it would be feasiable or not. So, actually you used a phrase : "Non renewable sources of energy cannot be replaced once they are used up." which I take very serious since its written with poor background.

The world is right now facing problem of convering non-renewable energy system to renewable energy system. Tell me how many electric cars are in India? I guess u might mention a few names but does the old cars(from old I mean fossil fuel burn cars) have capacity to turn themselve into this new type of cars?

is owners of cars going to pay for conversion?

you failed to mention BIO FUELS which includes bioethanol and biodiesel products that are replica of the fossil fuels( almost more than 90% same) and can be readily use.

Also you put emphasis on the windpower but brother we all know that vary alot and still unreliable source... It can only maximum produce power for around 4 hours a day(at full capacity) else they no use in some extreme seasons and still very costly.

U also failed to mention the Shale Gas.

World is relying on Diesel Geneset and Gas Turbines.

Solar is already in use and it is very expensive still...

Jehangir, I sympathise with your emotions. You can see the stats and judge for yourself. I emphasized the technologies I see as potential breakthroughs. I am sure you will agree that recycling and energy preservation are different concepts. Every new technology is expensive before its commercialised. Gravity never existed before Newton said it did.

Let me elaborate: Energy preservation is a superset of recycling. When you talk about turning old cars into new cars, you are talking about recycling. In fact, the alternative sources mentioned here are the better lot if successfully commercialised. So all comes down to commercialisation.

I believe in new and improved technologies to save cost, it must environmental friendly and also sustainable.

Thanks Shibam for your clarifications there! Please look at the news article mentioned in the article:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/scie nce/2012/sep/16/nuclear-fusion -iter-jet-forshaw

The article details my thought trail.

Thanks Kedei for you input.

I think the most amazing new technology is creating electricity out of human waste. I mean, what better thing than having your own toilet power your home? (I'm open to other ideas, but for me that's the ultimate sustainability) That's what needs to be commercialized; fusion's day hasn't come yet.

I believe that one day the oil platforms will dry-out, and the efficiency of green energy sources won't be enough. I remember that NASA and other space interest companies are thinking about space explorations, in meaning mining the Moon or asteroids, or making our self made perpetuum mobile...

Human Energy! I see the use of that at work here already. Let's keep discussing on how to solve our problem.
