CPV Centering Photo Voltaic– the future of the solar energy
The solar energy technologies are still trying to optimize themselves. The most efficient technology, which cost the less and produce the much energy, will win.
Solar technologies are looking how to become better and how to break the market. Thin films, Silicon, PV cell, Thermo systems and so on are already is use around the world and clean, solar energy is being produced. The real question now is how to optimize.
Into this open door, the CPV technology is entering.
CPV (Centering Photo Voltaic), is by definition optimizing the solar energy into the process. The technology is simple, to focus and center the sun light and by that optimize the solar energy production per square meter of solar cells. If 2008 was the CPV year with more than 10 Mega Watts of CPV solar energy, 2009 is panned to become 5 times bigger.
Big solar firms are working this way and trying to implant the CPV technology into their systems with the same goal – to low the cost per watt for the customer.
The biggest benefit is for the environment which every single watt which is produced by green energy sources such as solar, is another piece of coal or gallon of oil which we do not burn.

Greenpeace Australia and renewable energy
In Australia, Greenpeace activists are working hard to convince the government not to continue to use coal for power production, but to try all alternative power technologies such as solar, geothermal and sun power.
Lately, the Australian published the updated Renewable Energy Industry Development Program which is the major plan for the continent. Unfortunately, the power production plans id to keep on with the polluted solutions. This is the point where the public pressure can help and make the change.
The need of renewable energy sources is one of the main issues for all green activists because it’s taking part in many ecologic issues. First of all is the great CO2 pollution caused from the coal burn. Second is the nature sources such as coal, oil and gas which are vanished. Third id of course the need to recycle the energy we are using and to know how to use the sun light, wind power and seas to produce energy. Australia has all these sources, just need to decide to use them
This picture is saying it all; the Greenpeace activists are flying above the power station in New South Wales trying to say something very clear – save the planet. Saving the climate is most about the global warming which is caused from the coal energy

The Biggest plant has just about to be built in California; it will save us from breathing more than two million tons of CO2 every year. This is 99% good news for the environment, for the people who are living around and for the economy. Every Kilo watt of clean energy, is pure victory for the environment.
This is how the top of the Luz Power sees the mirrors:
Its true, to build it, to manufacture the parts and transport the employees and materials will also pollute and damage the environment, but for the long term, this is great solution for the environment. This biggest plant will produce 1,300 MW of clean solar energy. This electricity production will provide the clean energy to more than 800,000 homes in southern California with 3.7 billion Kilo watts.
The solar energy technology which will be in use is the Luz Power technology when thousands of small mirrors will reflect the sun light directly to steam production boiler on the top of the main tower. The boiler will get heated during the sun hours and produce the energy for the electricity.
The plant production is to be started at 2010 and start manufacturing green and clean electricity since 2013 with no time limit.

New research which was published in the United Kingdom is telling us all what ever we already know. The world is getting warmer every year.
The global warming is an ongoing problem. Even if we will stop all pollution and all activity which is taking part in this warming, the planet will keep get warmer for at least 200 more years. The damage was done and we all going to feel the results sooner or later. This is why they invented the green energy sources.
The time to take action is yesterday, the need is to reduce the power consumption with in our daily lives. Each Watt of electricity we are using is part of the global warming, every time we leave the lights of, is another few minutes of global warming process.
Reduce the need in energy in your daily life and promote alternative power such as solar power and wind power stations. All green energy sources are welcome. This is the future, this is what will save the planet, this is what we need for us and for the generations to come.
