The Oil Drum: Australia/New Zealand | What is happening with oil prices ?

...... your own, why don't you sit down, do the calculations and show it can't be done ? I've never seen anyone do this using present day cost figures for CSP, solar PV/thin film, wind, biogas, geothermal, hydro and ocean power options and taking into account projected changes over the next decade. I suspect you haven't either - so instead you indulge in a whole lot of hand waving and tell people to ......

Many large urban areas are far from a high-quality source of geothermal energy, do not have high wind power potential, or have low annual rates of solar insolation. Indeed, many of the windiest and sunny regions in the world are virtually uninhabited. The spatial ......

We simply have not developed technology (geothermal) for tapping into that heat. Some believe that the center of the Earth is one giant fission pile due to the more massive metal elements (uranium) sinking towards and collecting near the core. It's ......

Geysers and volcanoes are obvious manifestations of geothermal energy, but what role can it play toward satisfying our current global demand? Following the recent theme of Do the Math, we will put geothermal in one of three boxes labeled abundant, potent, or ......
