Coal power generation in the world

  Coal is a valuable and plentiful natural global resource. Not only does coal provide electricity, it is also an essential fuel for steel and cement production, and other industrial activities. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tones in 2010 and is expected to increase 48 per cent to 9.05 billion tones by 2030. Total world coal production reached a record level of 7,678 million tones (mt) in 2011, …

Burning midnight coal

  It is important for Pakistan to increase the generation capacity of the country; unfortunately relevant ministry couldn’t address the power crisis as quickly as was expected by the people. It’s simply because there has never been a long-term, realistic policy on power generation. Pakistan meets its power requirement from hydro, furnace oil fired steam, combined cycle gas plants and diesel oil fired electricity generating plants. Currently about 30 per …

Solar power option

  Although sufficiently provided with natural resources like water, coal and sunshine, our energy issues remain unresolved even after 67 years of the creation of Pakistan. This has been one of the major failings of our leadership. We have failed to draw a line between pressing national needs and trivial political issues.

Solar energy capabilities in the country

  Solar energy is the radiant power produced through the sun. It is produced both through heat and light. It, along with secondary solar-powered resources such as wave and wind energy accounts for the majority of the renewable power on Earth. The Earth gets 174 petawatts (pw) of solar radiation at the upper atmosphere. 30 percent of that is reflected back to space and the rest is absorbed through oceans, …

Climatic conditions, location ideal for solar power projects

  Solar power can meet wholly the world demand of electricity. It has the capability to provide several times the country’s energy demand. The world’s covered desert area of 40 percent can supply all of universe the electricity enough of a need. Even the Gobi Desert could supply electricity to world. It has a discontinuous production of supplying electricity and is generally kept by storage or another energy source with …

Hydropower projects – A better future ahead

  For years, large scale hydropower progress has been sighted as something of a pariah within the renewable power sector. Indeed, despite an acknowledged contribution to sustainable power growth ‘ hydropower’s worldwide kWh contribution dwarfs all other renewable technologies ‘ it has chiefly been excluded from considerations that merit other forms of renewable energy generation and has weathered widespread criticism over schemes deemed unsustainable. All that is altering though, and …

Energy conservation: A voyage from ICL to CFL

  Power shortfall was recorded at 2,400MW despite descending temperature due to rain. However, it may be noted that power shortfall has started rising from the level of 2,000MW and more is likely to take place soon the rainy weather is over. Present government took several initiatives to overcome the energy crisis and started enormous plan to develop not only energy resources but also energy conservation program. And one of …
