  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Delta Way Energy. Waste-to-energy uses trash as a fuel for generating power, just as other power plants use coal, oil, or natural gas. The burning fuel heats water into steam that drives a turbine to create electricity. The process can reduce a community’s landfill volume by up to 90 percent, and prevent one ton of carbon dioxide release for every ton of waste burned. Read more

  • UAE’s soft power expands its global position

    10-Oct-2016 by: Francis Matthew

    World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Gulf News The UAE’s growing soft power is a significant example of how the country and the Arab world is looking to support peaceful long-term alternatives to overcome the incessant violence in the region that has done such terrible damage to the hopes of millions of innocent individuals. A dramatic military intervention, like the UAE’s substantial commitment in Yemen, is necessary as an immediate measure to reinforce stability and rule of law, like the earlier commitment of its armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the UAE’s peaceful initiatives are equally important to how the country contributes to the global community in the long term.

  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from The Guardian. To many a casual observer, Germany's reaction to the Fukushima disasterseemed knee-jerk to say the least. Nuclear power produces nearly 20% of Germany's energy, but in July 2011 (only three months after Fukushima) the German government vowed to shut down its nuclear capability within 10 years. Not just that, but to replace it with renewable energy, cut greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions by 40% by 2020 and 80% by 2050, ensure renewables contribute 80% of Germany's energy by 2050, and ensure energy consumption drops 20% by 2020 and 50% by 2050. It even has its own word: 'Energiewende', or 'Energy Transformation'. And Angela Merkel, not known for hyperbole, has described it as a 'Herculean task'. Read the full story here
