The 2006 Renewable Energy Law stipulates that the additional cost of integrating electricity from renewable energy sources should be shared among the entire electricity system. The 2006 Law then included the Renewable Energy Surcharge, a fixed tariff added to the price of each kWh of electricity sold through the grid. The revenue generated by this premium is then to be splited among power distributors and utilities to balance the higher price they have to pay for electricity from renewable energy sources.. In 2006, the renewable energy Premium amounted to CNY 0.001/kWh, equivalent of USD 0.00015. Successive revisions rose it to CNY 0.004/kWh in 2009 to keep paste with the dramatic increase in electricity generation from renewable sources. In December 2011, the Surcharge for electricity generated from renewable energy sources increased to CNY 0.008/kwh, equivalent of USD 0.0012. ...

International Journal of Renewable Energy Technology, from Inderscience Publishers, promotes and disseminates knowledge of the various topics and technologies of different renewable energy resources
Downloadable! Adopting renewable energy technologies has been seen as a promising way to reduce CO2 emissions and deforestation. This paper investigates how social networks may affect renewable energy technology adoption. We distinguish two channels through which social networks may play a role: (i) the diffusion of information; and (ii) the diffusion of behavior. Most empirical studies fail to quantitatively separate the diffusion of information and behavior in social networks. We conduct a survey on biogas technology adopting in rural China to identify individuals egocentric information networks. We find that both the diffusion of information and behavior drive farmers technology adoption. Farmers with larger egocentric information networks and a larger fraction of known adopters are more likely to adopt the biogas technology. In addition, we collect data on several attributes of alters to explore the composition of social networks. We find heterogeneous social network effects across different types
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has been widely used for environmental performance measurement at different levels. Most of environmental DEA models take the deterministic form without considering random factors. This paper presents a stochastic environmental DEA model that can measure environmental performance under random conditions. The proposed model has been applied to evaluate the environmental performance of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies in 2010. The results indicate that the stochastic pure environmental performance of APEC economies is indeed affected by random factors. Especially, the fluctuation of Republic of Koreas stochastic pure environmental performance is most obvious among all the APEC economies.

Biofuels are renewable energy sources from living things. Fossil fuels are also of biological origin, but they are nonrenewable. All biofuels are derived from plants, which capture the suns energy, convert it to chemical energy by photosynthesis, and in the process of-being eaten or decayed, they pass this energy onto the rest of the living world. In this sense, all forms of life, and their byproducts and wastes are storehouses of solar energy.. Every day, over 200 times more energy from the sun falls on our planet than is used by the U.S. in a year. About half this energy is reflected back into space, and what does penetrate the atmosphere charges all our energy systems.. All plant matter is called biomass. Microbes, plants, trees, animals, vegetable oils, animal fats, manure garbage, and fossil fuels are all forms of biomass energy that can be produced, cultivated, or converted in different ways for our needs. All we need to do is use it. Each year the U.S. produces over 870 million dry tons, ...

The current method of disinfection of water used by the United States Army requires a significant amount of mobilization and demobilization time as well as being energy intensive. In an effort to improve small unit mobility a need for a light-weight, low maintenance, highly mobile disinfection system has arisen. In addition to the potential military use, a system of this type could provide a safe drinking water product during the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters, reducing the burden on emergency management services. A prototype system was developed that is self-powered, has low maintenance requirements, and can be stored for extended periods of time without requiring special storage of hazardous materials. Power was provided to the system using a hybrid renewable energy system consisting of a wind turbine and photovoltaic array. The energy generated from the renewable energy system was stored using an ultracapacitor. Disinfection of water was achieved using an ultraviolet disinfection unit.
Four provinces in Canada (Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec) have promulgated "action plans" to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These plans have several broad components. There is a carbon pricing component; there are assortments of energy efficiency programs; there is a "renewable energy" component; and most of the plans have vehicle electrification components (or such programs have been enacted separately from the climate action plans).. For example, Albertas Climate Leadership Plan consists of five key elements: a coal-power phase-out by 2030, a tripling of renewable energy generation to reach 30 percent of generation by 2030, reducing emissions from the oil and gas sector, creating Energy Efficiency Alberta to deliver cost-saving programs, and implementing an economy-wide price on carbon.. Ontarios climate action plan contains similar efforts, including a "Green Bank" to fund efficiency programs, increasing vehicle electrification, running education programs for homeowners ...

Between 2002-2008 the Federal Government supplied the fossil fuel industry with $72 billion in subsidies. While this money helps to keep the cost of the fuels down for consumers, it also makes switching over to renewable energy more difficult. The main drawback for renewable energies is they are not yet cost effective with fossil fuel technologies, but this is due in large part to the subsidies they are competing with. President Obama today announced his goal of ending such subsidies in an effort to move away from fossil fuel usage. ...

More than twice as much of the UKs energy budget for overseas aid this decade has been spent on fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas rather than renewable energy sources, according to figures from Cafod.. The Overseas Development Institute confirmed the findings by reporting that the UK spent 46% of its £6.1 billion budget on fossil fuels. This compares with just 22% spent on renewable energy between 2010 and 2014.. Cafod firmly believes investment should lie in renewable energy and not in fossil fuels and that the government should be doing more to meet the commitments made in the Paris climate change agreement.. Figures suggest the Department for International Development invested more into renewable energy projects for less economically developed countries, with a total of 32%. However 32% of their funds did also go towards fossil fuels. Aid agencies have claimed that these small-scale renewable energy projects, such as solar farms, are vital to a countrys development and as a means of ...
According to the U.S. Energy Administration, renewable energy accounted for almost half of all the new power generation capacity installed in the United States in 2012: a generating capacity totaling about 13,000 megawatts while creating about 110,000 new jobs in 2012 alone. This indicates the growing influence of green energy on the power industry and the national, regional and state economies.. A number of Southern economies are leaders in this effort, including Georgia, Tennessee and Texas. Renewable energy development allows for the branching out from customary energy projects, creating new jobs and impacting state and local economies in nontraditional ways.
