Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Chile by 2020? and PowerPoint Presentation

Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Chile by 2020?California is in the midst of a water crisis. By The Republic of Chile has energy shortages and needs energy. Key factors have contributed to this shortage throughout the past decade, including limited indigenous fossil fuels, droughts and a natural gas shortage from Argentina in 2004. In addition to energy shortages, Chile is experiencing economic and population growth. The investment in a renewable energy mix is a high priority to provide a more secure energy supply, to reduce greenhouse emissions and to supply sustainable and healthier energy.

Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Spain by 2020?

Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Spain by 2020?This paper posits that Spain is theoretically capable of obtaining 100% renewable energy by 2020 -- theoretically only because of the logistical issues involved. Also, Spain?s slow recovery from the 2008 global recession has caused some reticence about additional spending. Even with the previously mentioned factors though, Spain does have other features that enable them to reach 100% renewable energy. Spain has a well-established foundation. Again, 35% of demand was met with renewable energy. The installed capacity of renewable energy is constantly increasing. Spain?s renewable resources provide great potential for the generation of energy. Some policies have been created to promote and facilitate the usage of renewables.

 

Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Turkey by 2020?

Is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Turkey by 2020?This paper posits that Turkey is capable of obtaining 100% renewable energy by 2020. In 1970, the renewable energies could meet about 35% of demand. while in 2010, 10% of current demand was met with renewable energy. Current and even future electricity demand for 2020 could easily be met with renewable energies for an economically feasible situation. Even the primary energy demand could be covered by renewable energies, if sufficiently exploited! The transition from a fossil fuel based energy system to a renewable energy system is possible, if more commitment is shown.

 

How is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for Japan by 2020?

This report focuses on how 100% renewable energy in Japan is possible by 2020. Japan is now in a severe condition with their energy because of the 2011 nuclear power plant disaster caused by earthquake and tsunami. Since then, Japan has struggled to manage its energy in peak times. To solve this problem, the Japanese government and people are trying to shift their energy to renewable sources. So far, achieving this goal has been exceedingly low, even if it is possible. Despite this outcome, this report takes a strong position on energy issues. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the feasibility of 100% renewable energy for Japan to decision makers, political leaders and the public.

 

How is 100% Renewable Energy Possible for South Korea by 2020?

100 percent renewable for South Korea wind powerSouth Korea is a country without many primary resources; the country imports most of its energy. It is one of the 5 biggest importers of fuel fossil energy in the world. To be less dependent on foreign countries includes reducing these imports, so the part played by using renewable energy has to be increased. Moreover, the greenhouse gases emissions have to be reduced or at least the rise of such emissions has to be stopped.

 


An Econonic Argument for Adopting a Zero Emission Energy Policy in Australia

An Econonic Argument for Adopting a Zero Emission Energy Policy in AustraliaAustralia ranks among the highest nations in the world for per capita greenhouse gas emissions; its energy capacity is mostly made up of fossil fuels, and it is one of the largest exporters of coal and uranium. In contrast, Australia boasts vast wind and solar energy resources that could be potentially exploited. This paper examines the economic argument for Australia to make changes in its energy consumption and mineral exports and take advantage of its potential by pursuing zero emissions renewable energy policies.
