Renewable Energy Systems and Sources (RESS) and Industrial Applications
Renewable Energy has attracted a lot of attention in the recent past owing to exhaustion of fossil fuels and in the lookout for alternate energy for a clean and green future. Utilization of renewable energy sources in the industrial sector is yet to improve as it has in the field of its utilization for power generation due to greater scope of improvement with reference to CO2 capture and storage and energy efficiency. Energy derived from biomass has potential to substitute fossil fuels as it is derived from readily available by-products from wood industry, household and agricultural waste. Besides absorbing CO2 leading to reduction of Greenhouse gases(GCG) released by burning of fossil fuels, the equipment for its production is same as that used for production of energy from fossil fuels. Biomass converted directly into liquid fuels is biofuels or green fuels which can serve transportation needs. The 93 billion liters of biofuels produced worldwide in 2009 displaced the equivalent of an estimated 68 billion liters of gasoline, equal to about 5% of world gasoline production. Two most common types of biofuels used are ethanol and biodiesel are derived from naturally occurring plants, alcohol and vegetable oil which act as a perfect substitute for fossil fuel. The Biomass Power industry has grown at a healthy rate in the five years to 2014. The industry's expansion has been propelled in part by several federal renewable energy tax credits that encouraged the use of biomass power. If the total annual primary production of biomass is just over 100 billion (1.0E+11) tones /yr. and the energy reserve per metric ton of biomass is between about 1.5 – 3 Kilowatt hours (5000 – 10,000 BTU, then biomass could perhaps provide only one tenth of the approximate annual 150 Terawatts/hours required for the current world energy consumption. Biogas is another clean and efficient fuel generated through anaerobic fermentation of biological waste which can be used for heating and cooling, steam and electricity generation. Over 44 million households use biogas made in household-scale digesters for lighting and/or cooking and more than 166 million households rely on a new generation of more-efficient biomass cook-stoves. Today the Renewable Energy sector is already providing more than 450,000 jobs and has an annual turnover exceeding 45 billion Euros. Combined with improvements in energy efficiency and the rational use of energy, renewable energy sources can provide everything fossil fuels currently offer in terms of energy services such as heating and cooling, electricity and also transport fuel.
Renewable energy expo 2015: Is designed to meet all renowned and eminent speakers from all around the globe with delegates, exhibitors, industry experts and work shop symposiums.
