Global Low Carbon Energy Focus

Carbon Footprint from LAND sds

Published April 5, 2013

In the pursuit  of identifying a carbon footprint the next step is to reduce the emissions within that footprint. The challenge of carbon emission is stamping a seal that identifies this need as relevant with impactful implications.   Reduction stem from active intelligence to grow aptitude for environment, emissions, energy and efficiency.  The work of “Pioneering the energy system of the future”  from South China Morning Post are a yardstick for global emission identification.

“There are three compelling reasons for the world to make the shift to low-carbon energy. First, higher levels of carbon dioxide are making the world’s oceans acidic. Second, carbon dioxide is dangerously changing the world’s climate, even if many Big Oil interests would have us believe otherwise. Third, we face steeply rising prices for fossil fuels, as developing countries’ growth drives up demand and conventional supplies of coal, oil and gas are depleted.”

“The United States has developed many new low-carbon energy technologies, but other countries are currently far more intent, far-sighted and decisive in putting them to large-scale use. Germany and France are showing the way forward and going about it in ways that reflect their different resource endowments, industrial histories and political pressures.”

“Germany is undertaking the Energiewende, or transition to sustainable energy – a remarkable effort to meet the country’s entire energy demand with renewable energy, especially solar and wind power. Meanwhile, France relies heavily on nuclear power and is switching rapidly to electric vehicles, such as the pioneering Renault-Nissan Leaf.”

“Of the two approaches, Germany’s is the more unusual bet. After Japan’s nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Germany decided to shut down its nuclear power industry and shift entirely to a strategy based on greater energy efficiency and renewables.”

“There really is no clear road map for such a huge energy transformation, and Germany almost surely will need to rely on a European-wide electricity grid to share clean energy, and eventually on imported solar power from North Africa and the Middle East.  France’s bet on nuclear power is a more proven option. After all, most of France’s electricity has come from nuclear power for many years.”

Whereas, the United States energy is increasing in cost and the infrastructure is rated D plus is prudent to emission identification.  The global management of emission goals and processes is necessary pursuit of the times. As much as the U.S. is woefully behind on energy gotchas the advancement of understanding a footprint can change operations to think of size, standard and comfort as in buying a pair of shoes. The willingness to be sustainably minded and energy relevant is the start of a new journey.
