CLEAN TECHNOLOGY – Energy Conservation Week April 02, 2012
Clean technology includes recycling, renewable energy (wind power, solar power, biomass, hydropower, biofuels), information technology, green transportation, electric motors, green chemistry, lighting, Greywater, and many other appliances that are now more energy efficient. It is a means to create electricity and fuels, with a smaller environmental footprint and minimise pollution. To make green buildings, transport and infrastructure both more energy efficient and environmentally benign. Environmental finance is a method by which new clean technology projects that have proven that they are “additional” or “beyond business as usual” can obtain financing through the generation of carbon credits. A project that is developed with concern for climate change mitigation (such as a Kyoto Clean Development Mechanism project) is also known as a carbon project.
While there is no standard definition of “clean technology,” it has been described by Clean Edge, a clean technology research firm, as “a diverse range of products, services, and processes that harness renewable materials and energy sources, dramatically reduce the use of natural resources, and cut or eliminate emissions and wastes.” It notes that “Clean technologies are competitive with, if not superior to, their conventional counterparts. Many also offer significant additional benefits, notably their ability to improve the lives of those in both developed and developing countries“. Many countries have developed clean tech representatives to speak about the countries problems some countries include Russia, Japan, and China.
Greetings Earthlings and T.G.I.M (Thank God It’s Monday).
Last month began with a week of energy conservation which can be referenced at this link, and it led to some satisfactory and notable endÂ results, so the simple and smart thing to do in my humble opinionÂ is to simplyÂ repeat the process and add some upgrades in the form of the condition of the energy being conserved, which in this case is that which is known as CLEAN.
At the end of the day as well as the beginning, this Internet phenomenon is in essence, some words and pictures on a PC/Phone screen, and this week will be dedicated to researching what this ever increasingly necessary part of globalÂ life and cultureÂ really means.
