Secondly evaluate the sustainable development of biofuel and wind energies. Finally conclude arguments on potential renewable energy to replace fossil fuels. Owing to the increase in the global population accompanied by an increase in energy demand as a result oil price crisis. Many governments... ... middle of paper ... ...f renewable energy or carbon-free debate and argument. This essay has attempted to evaluate the potential renewable energy both in terms of sustainable development and reducible global warming.
Secondly, the low efficiency may improve by the innovation of technology which are the technical and design improvement on photovoltaic systems, storage systems and concentrated solar power systems. The above findings demonstrate the need to mitigate problems with using solar power not only because it is an alternative energy but also because solar power has huge long-term benefits as an endless, sustainable and clean future energy. Therefore, this report recommends that government need more promotion in future to support and boost the research and development of solar energy system which also need the collaboration of the scientist on technical issues. A further recommendation is public encourage in order to widely utilize solar energy in the world.
It can also provide the electricity with suitable combination of Wind, Biomass and Photovoltaic (PV). This indicates that the Sultanate of Oman has the enormous opportunity to become a renewable giant in the near future. The peak electricity demand in Oman increased drastically from 2,773 MW in 2007 to 4,643 MW in 2013. This is due to the accelerated growth in Oman. There exists a need to reduce the gap between the production and consumption of the electricity – as extra need of energy sources other than fossil fuel and gases are needed.
Today, global energy supply, economy of productions and environment regulation controlled industry around the world. This defined a demand to save energy, reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment for the next generation. Due to that, engineers start to come up with tools and innovations to decrease the used energy. Pinch analysis is a tool used to design heat exchanger networks (HEN) with less energy usage. This paper will focus on pinch analysis and applying the second law of thermodynamic.
The government can help in numerous ways; from requiring the use of “greener” technology in the manufacturing of products to regulating the amount and type of chemicals that can be used in fertilizers, to the development of more programs that focus on the non reliance of foreign oil. With everything going on in the world these days, it would be to America’s benefit to reduce the dependence on oil, especially from terrorist countries. Wind power, hydropower and biomass energy are just a few suggestions that can make a very positive change in America and the entire planet. Wind power can be used to generate electricity. “Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power.
Energy generation and utilization choices are controlled by the thermodynamic laws. For a process design, evaluation of the exergy destruction and efficiency analysis can help identifying and figuring out the high efficient energy generation systems.

Several researchers have studied the utilizing of integrated systems in energy generation to improve the thermodynamic and environmental performance.
Zero Emissions Technology Zero Emissions Technology: Current Technologies and Future Developments in Electrostatic Precipitators Abstract Zero Emissions Technology is a company located in New Durham, NH. They develop new technologies targeted at coal fired power plants. They have recently developed a new air emissions technology that will meet current and pending air pollution regulations. Their product, Electro-Catalytic Oxidation Technology, allow the combined removal of particulates in the air waste stream. The new technology can be retrofitted onto existing electrostatic precipitators (ESP), according to the industry, is not as expensive as other air pollution control technologies.
In order to survive the energy crisis, many companies in the energy industry are inventing new ways to extract energy from renewable sources.” The future vitality of the environment will be derived from wind power, geothermal energy, biomass, nuclear energy, solar energy and the most important source: hydropower. These renewable sources are crucial to the nourishment of the environment since they are less harmful and they are constantly replenished without running out. The first widely used renewable source of energy is wind power. This energy source is created by wind turbines that convert the speed of the wind into electricity and mechanical energy. The speed of the turbine affects the amount of energy that is produced.
The current worldwide electric generation is estimated to be about 20terra-watt hours . Almost 68% of the electrical supply is generated by using fossil fuels as the raw material, nuclear accounts for 14%, hydro 15% and the remaining 3% is from renewable resources. The worldwide electrical demand is going to double by the mid-century and triple by the end of century. As the demand will increase so will the generation, which means more fossil fuels will be used which in turn will create more environmental problems. Due to these environmental issues, many countries are now utilizing renewable resources for green electrical generation.
GE objective is become the lead designer of the next generation of wind technology that is cost effective and provides reliable wind power.
