IEA and World Bank to Invest Money at Renewables

IEA and World Bank to Invest Money at Renewables

Recently, World Bank and IEA announced plans to spend more on renewables, as they think that enough money is not invested in such renewable source due to which industries often point out of having lower gains in their profit margins. So, IEA and World Bank came up with an alternative to spend more money in […]

Donald Tusk - the originator of an energy union

Energy Union – pipe dream or real possibility?

Energy dependence is nothing new. But the fact is that the results of it we can fully observe nowadays, just to mention the ongoing political and military struggle in Ukraine. Saying that Russia is fully responsible for the energy dependence of several countries such as Ukraine, Poland, Bulgaria and others is inappropriate at least. The […]

Experts believe demand will mushroom next year and increase 33 percent by 2020 from last year's 73 billion cubic feet a day.

Natural gas industry struggles with price volatility and delivery issues

Even with plenty of natural gas in the ground, America’s plan to use more natural gas to operate power plants, make chemicals, drive vehicles and heat homes may not go as smoothly as expected. The bitter weather this winter shows there are obstacles in producing and supplying gas. The harsh temperatures increased demand for natural gas […]

World Bank's Thirsty Energy Initiative

World Bank’s Thirsty Energy Initiative Signifies Growing Importance of Energy-Water Nexus

Two of our highly important global resources, Energy and water are intricately linked. However, when it comes to organising, the regulatory agencies, who manage these valuable resources, are often disunited and uncoordinated in their decision-making. With the World Bank recently launching its  Thirsty Energy initiative, it appears that the energy-water nexus is finally being given […]

Magma Chamber

Iceland Successfully Harnesses Energy Directly From Magma

Five years ago, engineers at Icelandic Deep Drilling Project, IDDP witnessed a bizarre site while drilling a borehole in Krafla, Northeast Iceland. At 2100m they had accidently hit Earth’s magma chambers, intruding into the planet’s upper crust from below at searing temperatures of 900 to 1000 Celsius that generated super-hot vents of stems. The magma-heated […]

U.S. on its way to energy independence, says DOE

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the net import share of U.S. energy consumption will only be 4 percent by 2040, meaning that the country is almost breaking even in terms of U.S. energy imports vs. exports. Though the country’s imports still vary, the percentage is significantly less than it was last year when it had net imports of 16 percent and even 2005 when it had net imports of 30 percent.
