Be Amazed at these top 10 renewable energy solutions! Algae – Though a green eyesore on the water, algae’s potential was first suggested in 1942 as a source of food and fuel. It wasn’t taken seriously till the 1970s, however, when oil prices surged due to the oil embargo, forcing the US government to look into it. Carnegie Wave Energy – Australians have taken their love of surfing above the waves to another level – harnessing the power of waves below the surface thanks to Carnegie’s CETO technology. Tidal Power – A few other ways of harnessing tidal power include using Horizontal Axis Tidal Turbines . Osmotic Power – Osmotic power is generated when salt water meets fresh water – something that happens in nature when rivers flow to the sea. Solar and Wind Power – Why use solar panels when you have to deal with the night, bad weather, and cloudy days? By putting a solar array in space, we can have unlimited access to solar power which can be transmitted to homes in much the same way as cable channels.

Human Power – While pedal power has been around for a while, foot power is new thanks to Pavegen – a company that harnesses the power of footsteps. Lava Geothermal Generators – Iceland already uses geothermal energy from its many steam vents, but in 2014, it accidentally dug directly into a magma chamber. Turbulent Micro Hydro Power Plant – Turbulent came up with a simple whirlpool turbine that can power dozens of homes using the power of rivers and canals without harming fish. Batteries – The problem with solar and wind power lies in the fact that these sources of energy tend to be generated when they aren’t always needed. Windmills – Texas prides itself on big things, but researchers at the University of Texas Arlington bucked that trend with micro-windmills .

China solar panels: PRC is now home to the world’s largest floating solar farm

HUAINAN CITY, CHINA — A new floating solar farm constructed on a lake in Huainan City, China is said to be the largest in the world.

According to the South China Morning Post, the farm is made up of 160,000 solar panels. These panels reportedly can produce electricity for up to 15,000 homes.

The farm is built over a lake that emerged from a collapsed coal mine, reported Phys.org.

The water from the lake helps cool the panels’ electronics, reported the Smithsonian Mag, citing a Telegraph report on Europe’s largest solar farm.

The farm was linked to Huainan City’s power grid last month, reported the South China Morning Post.

World’s first Forest City under construction in China, runs on renewable energy – TomoNews

LIUZHOU, CHINA — The world’s first forest city, designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, is currently under construction in southern China. It is expected to be completed by 2020.

The Forest City is located in the mountainous region north of city of Liuzhou. It will host 30,000 people and it has everything that a typical city provides, such as offices, houses, hotels, hospitals and schools.

A total of 40,000 trees and almost one million plants from more than 100 species will be planted in building facades, parks and city streets. The trees and plants will absorb an estimated 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of pollutants each year and produce 900 tons of oxygen in exchange.

The buildings will draw on geothermal energy to provide cooling and heating for interior air-conditioning. Solar panels will be installed over the roofs for harvesting solar energy.

A fast rail line will be connecting the Forest City to the existing city of Liuzhou, a metropolis with a population of more than 3.7 million.

Vertical forest is a popular concept in architecture nowadays. Nanjing, a city in eastern China, is currently building two green towers which can absorb 25 tons of carbon dioxide. Taipei is also building its carbon-eating Tao Zhu Yin Yuan tower, which is said to be able to absorb 130 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

China has been fighting severe air pollution over the past few years. Dozens of Chinese cities would be covered by thick and toxic smog for days in almost every month. Despite the country’s efforts in tackling the pollution, such as restrictions on driving and investments in renewable energy projects, the effect of such measures remain minimal.
