[BBC Technology Documentary] Renewable Energy - NEW Science Documentary HD

Renewable energy is generally defined as energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.[2] Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas: electricity generation, hot water/space heating, motor fuels, and rural (off-grid) energy services.[3]

Based on REN21's 2014 report, renewables contributed 19 percent to our energy consumption and 22 percent to our electricity generation in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Both, modern renewables, such as hydro, wind, solar and biofuels, as well as traditional biomass, contributed in about equal parts to the global energy supply. Worldwide investments in renewable technologies amounted to more than US$214 billion in 2013, with countries like China and the United States heavily investing in wind, hydro, solar and biofuels.[4]

Renewable energy resources exist over wide geographical areas, in contrast to other energy sources, which are concentrated in a limited number of countries. Rapid deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency is resulting in significant energy security, climate change mitigation, and economic benefits.[5] In international public opinion surveys there is strong support for promoting renewable sources such as solar power and wind power.[6] At the national level, at least 30 nations around the world already have renewable energy contributing more than 20 percent of energy supply. National renewable energy markets are projected to continue to grow strongly in the coming decade and beyond.[7]

While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas and developing countries, where energy is often crucial in human development.[8] United Nations' Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said that renewable energy has the ability to lift the poorest nations to new levels of prosperity

imagine having to do this shit every week for a 1 credit hour class
ughhhhh so boring
When my household opened a massive energy fee I decided it cannot happen again and created my own energy source. The solution is the Papziati Energy online course. It is a great way to create your own renewable energy. It is the first item that will come up in Google.

You know there is a big H there on the bottom half of the screen...and this is BBC???

Bull, 10% of the land area of Nevada cannot supply the power needs of the US. When the sun goes down, no power. Who wrote this stuff.
Not BBC! please fix the title

Finding methods to cut your power bill does not have to be intricate. Sometimes, we make a good choices and wind up making things better later on. Get ready to make your own energy and pay lower bills through the help of producing power method “boma fetching unique” (Google it).

PBS-NOVA "The Nuclear Option" [BBC Technology Documentary] Renewable 8 months ago   52:46

Aired - January 11, 2017

A renaissance in nuclear technology grows while a crisis continues at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

How will we power the planet without wrecking the climate?

Five years after the earthquake and tsunami that triggered the unprecedented trio of meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, scientists and engineers are struggling to control an ongoing crisis. What’s next for Fukushima? What’s next for Japan? And what’s next for a world that seems determined to jettison one of our most important carbon-free sources of energy? Despite the catastrophe—and the ongoing risks associated with nuclear—a new generation of nuclear power seems poised to emerge the ashes of Fukushima. NOVA investigates how the realities of climate change, the inherent limitations of renewable energy sources, and the optimism and enthusiasm of a new generation of nuclear engineers is looking for ways to reinvent nuclear technology, all while the most recent disaster is still being managed. What are the lessons learned from Fukushima? And with all of nuclear’s inherent dangers, how might it be possible to build a safe nuclear future?
