Today, about 5 millions American families have chosen the 100% GREEN and economical technology. With the support of modern science, the environment-conscious customers have access to a source of natural energy. By 2015, producers will commit to double their investments in renewable energy, so that 10 millions can enjoy this ecological solution. Green energy comes from sources that respect the environment. The renewable energy sources from which green energy is produced have 3 qualities:
- They are CO2 neutral
- They allow to develop natural resources
- They are inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels (such as oil).
These qualities make GREEN technology the ideal solution to respond to the energy challenges and fight global warming. Choose green energy, forgives for thinking about the future of our planet!
The main sources of GREEN technology
At present, the technology is mostly green biomass, wind, water and sunlight. Biomass power plants are using organic materials (eg wood) as fuel. Biomass power generally produce 85% of its GREEN technology from this material. Wind turbines convert the energy of the wind into electricity. The country has hundreds of wind farms, capable of powering 335,000 households with electricity each year. Hydroelectric plants convert water power into electricity. Photovoltaic panels convert solar energy into electricity. This ultimate source of energy is present in all 52 states. The design and production of photovoltaic cells for installation of these panels in the industry and individuals.
GREEN technologies for the development of poor countries
So far, concerns about climate change and the environment does not have much impact on the path took by economic growth in Southeast Asia. But the growing global interest and the tough competition and increased pressure faced by agricultural land and water resources should change that. In 20 years, green technologies have become a global market estimated in 2008 to US $ U. 650 billion, equivalent to the aerospace and pharmaceutical industries; sector leaders are the United States, Japan and the EU. According to the European Forum on eco-innovation, the market is called on to reach nearly $ E.-U. 2.3 trillion by 2020. Eco-industries include advanced very complex and expensive technology (high-tech) and simple technologies for basic human needs. The most promising sectors identified by the ITC in terms of export growth and opportunities relate to renewable energy, green technology information and related services, recycling and water treatment. The table below details exportable technologies and services and their potential for South-South trade. In the UK, Joint Environmental Markets Unit predicts that by 2010 developing countries and transition activities related to the environment have grown by 10 percent per year, a market of US $ U. 178 billion. Developing countries must build a strong and competitive industry GREEN technology if they wish to take advantage of these opportunities. In its 2009 report, “International trade and climate change,” The World Bank estimates that “traditionally, developing countries have been importers of clean technologies and developing countries exporters. However, following the improvement of the investment climate and potentially huge customer base, developing countries are emerging as major players in the eco-technology sector, which bodes well for a dynamic South-South transfer of technology in the future. “The development of South-South trade in green technologies will create export opportunities, simplify technology transfer and will be an effective tool of sustainable low carbon development and a catalyst for the creation of “green” jobs and export revenues.
