WASHINGTON: Pakistan is grappling with an energy crisis of epic proportions. Here are some solutions:
Coal: Ramp up coal mining and production, and convert existing thermal power plants to use coal as fuel.
Coal contributes to less than 1% of Pakistan’s generation, even…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/oil-gas-energy/few-pointers-for-solving-pakistans-energy-crisis-make-game-plan/ energy crisis generating electricity, energy generation, energy specialists, generating electricity, IP pipeline, Iran-Pakistan-India-Bangladesh pipeline, National Electric Power Regulatory Authority, natural gas, Pakistan’s Energy Crisis, Shale gas, solution energy crisis pakistan, thermal power plants

Shale Gas & Foreign Oil: How Realistic Is US Energy Independence? frequent refrain of American politicians and policymakers with an agenda
“America is too dependent on foreign oil” is a frequent refrain of American politicians and policymakers with an agenda. Indeed, in 2011 and 2012 the US imported 40-45% of all petroleum consumed in the US – 8.5 million barrels per day worth of crude oil as well as refined products such…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/oil-gas-energy/shale-gas-foreign-oil-how-realistic-is-us-energy-independence-frequent-refrain-of-american-politicians-and-policymakers-with-an-agenda/ American politicians and policymakers, Carbon and De-carbonization, foreign oil, Future Energy Fellows, marcellus shale, natural gas, Shale gas, US Energy Independence
The Price of Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany,
The energy and climate challenge of the 21st century is easy enough to describe. For a world of 9 or 10 billion people to live at the per capita wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany, we will need three to four times as much energy as we consume…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/national-news/the-price-of-ignoring-energy-innovation-wealth-and-highly-efficient-energy-consumption-equivalent-of-present-day-germany/ (highly efficient), Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, clean energy innovation, Cleantech, Climate, Energy and Economy, energy consumption equivalent, Finance, Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth, Politics & Legislation, population growth, present-day Germany, Renewables, Shale gas
A new opinion poll conducted in Austria has found that 77% of Austrians are in favour of wind energy compared to just 4% in favour of fossil fuels and 1% for nuclear power.
The poll, published on 8 May by the Austrian Wind Energy Association, IG Windkraft, also found that Austrian’s are…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/seventy-seven-percent-of-austrians-favour-wind-power-by-the-austrian-wind-energy-association/ Austrian Wind Energy Association, Nuclear Power, Shale gas, Wind energy, wind power project
California: Energy Rich, Decision Poor diverging trajectories of two big, energy-rich states: Texas and California
The Wall Street Journal has an incisive editorial this week that compares the diverging trajectories of two big, energy-rich states: Texas and California.
Texas is flush with well-paying oil and natural gas jobs, supported by shale development spurred by advances in hydraulic fracturing and…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/california-energy-rich-decision-poor-diverging-trajectories-of-two-big-energy-rich-states-texas-and-california/ California, domestic oil and gas, Energy and Economy, energy jobs, Finance, natural gas, Oil, Politics & Legislation, Shale gas, Texas and California

Energy Demand Reductions Help Slash US CO2 Emissions: A Closer Analysis CO2 Scorecard breaks it down shows nearly 75% of decline
Energy related CO2 emissions in the US fell by 205 million metric tons in 2012. CO2 Scorecard breaks it down and shows that nearly 75% of the decline is accounted for by demand reduction primarily due to the economy-wide energy efficiency and conservation measures in the transportation,…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/energy-demand-reductions-help-slash-us-co2-emissions-a-closer-analysis-co2-scorecard-breaks-it-down-shows-nearly-75-of-decline/ Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon tax, Climate, Coal, Efficiency, Electricity, Energy, Environment, natural gas, Nuclear Power, Politics & Legislation, Renewables, Shale gas, U.S. energy policy
Hydraulic Fracking & Water Pollution the environmental impacts of natural gas for The Energy Collective,
In planning my series on the environmental impacts of natural gas for The Energy Collective, I had always intended for my third post to cover the critical issue of water needs.
