Group discussion on renewable energy?

I have to do a group discussion on renewable energy next week and im kind of struggling on what and how to research. Basically the lecturer is messing us about. She keeps taking days off sick which is resulting in us cramming sh*t loads of work for assesments that are days away with little preperation. I dont have a clue on how to plan, research or even do a group discussion. I dont know what you have to talk about, how to start it off etc etc. Ive never done a group discussion before. Can any one shed some light on this topic please. I dont even have a clue on renewable energy. We picked it because everyone said it would be easy. I got home and researched it and im actually clueless. Does anyone know of any sites eyc that would be of much help? :)

cheers.

Windmill Farms answers:

Renewable energy comes directly from natural resources that can be constantly replenished such as wind, sun, wave and water. It is all around us, it’s just a matter of harnessing it. The technologies range from solar power, wind power, hydroelectricity / micro hydro, biomass and biofuels for transportation.
You can visit Mark’s website to collect more information about this topic. He provide a great information regarding renewable energy. Best of luck to you.

Windmill Farms answers:

Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewable resources, with 10% of all energy from traditional biomass, mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 3% and are growing very rapidly.

Hope this will help you.

David asks…

Why would anyone be against renewable energy?

Seriously why have we not increased the use of renewable energy in the US? Oil is running out, which is why we are using these tar sands out of desperation. Whats the point of even using these tar sands? it is even good oil plus we degrading the environment even more. It would only take a couple of months, maybe less, to convert to 50% of our energy from renewable sources. So why not make the switch? USA is considered the Saudi Arabia of wind power, yet only about 2-3% of our energy comes from wind.
So I guess im asking for anyone to try and say why renewable energy is bad for the us. I want to hear some opinions of people being against renewable energy.

Windmill Farms answers:

Renewable energy, particularly wind farms and solar are extremely expensive and inefficient. In most cases prohibitively so. It’s not that governments don’t want these technologies (although fossil fuels have some very powerful lobby groups) but at present they simply can’t afford it. Too much money for not enough and or unreliable supply.

Mandy asks…

how many Renewable Energy Park in india?

A unique and effective platform for the popularization of Non Renewable Sources of Energy (NRSE) ,
the Renewable Energy Park (REP) scheme was initiated in 1994-95 with a view to create awareness,
provide publicity and enable rural and urban groups to explore NRSE systems and devices.

I’m not sure whetther this is the exact info which u wanted. But still check it out :

The need to increase the use of renewable energy sources for sustainable energy development was recognized in the country in the early 70s. A significant thrust has been given to the research, development and induction of renewable energy technologies in different sectors. To begin with, these endeavours were steered and overseen by the Commission for Additional Sources of Energy (CASE). The Department of Non-Conventional Energy Sources was created in the Ministry of Energy and entrusted with the charge of promotingnon-conventional energy sources. In 1992, DNES was upgraded and it started functioning as a separate Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources (MNES).

The Ministry takes care of the following specific items:
~ Commission for Additional Sources of Energy (CASE);
~ Solar energy including solar photovoltaic devices and their development, production and applications;
~ Research and development of biogas and programmes relating to biogas units.
~ Programme relating to improved wood stoves and research and development thereof;
~ All matters relating to small/mini/micro hydel projects of and below 25 MW capacity;
~ Research and development of other non-conventional/renewable sources of energy and programmes relating thereto;
~ Integrated Rural Energy Programme (IREP);
~ Soft funding for renewable energy systems through Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency;

The Commission for Additional Sources of Energy was established in 1981 and has the following responsibilities:-
~ Formulating policies and programmes for the development of new and renewable sources of energy.
~ Co-ordinating and intensifying research and development activities in new and renewable sources of energy.
~ Ensuring implementation of Government’s policies in regard to all matters concerning new and renewable sources of energy.

Nice Question ^_^
