Barack Obama, solar energy and the EU

calogeromira.wordpress.come-mail

Copenhagen? “Obama’s confusion” for Greenpeace. Caroline Lucas, the Greens and new nuclear plants in the UK. The Build up portal, energy, buildings and the European Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs. Will nine EU nations build an offshore wind power grid? They are Britain, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Ireland and Luxembourg.

08.10.09 I know that Barack Obama is under pressure for his decisions concerning the health system, but there is another reason to criticise him… Why no reactions by Greenpeace and WWF against Obama and his government that would let Westinghouse go on with Italian policy for – improbable? – nuclear energy? No nuclear energy in Italy is good as in Denmark although Italy is not Denmark… And what about Steven Chu, US energy secretary, who is behaving as a bad politician from this point of view? I am not suggesting that the Republicans are better, but some Democrats are not good.

– Were environmentalists “elated at the election of Barack Obama, and his appointment of the Nobel Prize winning physicist Steven Chu as Energy Secretary”?! Were they really elated?

Furthermore, there was a tv program in Italy that found serious problems in managing nuclear waste in Italy or reports that were not written in a good way. Or even a mountain that has been found radioactive in Italy.

Against? I am sure Barack Obama will be against the interest of Westinghouse having to do with the possible – or impossible – nuclear energy project in Italy. Maybe there will be no more nuclear energy produced in Italy…

06.10.09 Session about solar energy at 4pm on Friday 9 October at the European Commission, Charlemagne Building in Brussels, so far I know rue de la Loi 170… EU – Mediterranean – Gulf Renewable Energy Conference

The Barcelona Process. A Mediterranean solar energy plan – The Euro-Mediterranean Partnership or the Barcelona Process or the Union for the Mediterranean. Please also consider that there are tags and categories in this post.

The Observer. I have read an article by Oliver Morgan and the Observer of Sunday 3 July 2005. It reads: “Last week, BNFL confirmed it was to sell its Westinghouse reactor design business, and senior government officials believe BNG, BNFL’s decommissioning and operations business, is incapable of winning work on UK sites in future without a partner or new owner”.

You may also read the following sentence in that article. “A damning internal report into a major leak of radioactive liquid at British Nuclear Fuels’ Thorp reprocessing plant at Sellafield has found that management was complacent and that the incident was not detected for eight months”. Did everything happen that way?

Another sentence reads: “Thorp has been shut down since detection of the leak, and senior figures at the NDA believe it should not reopen”. How is the situation now?

WWF Scotland and nuclear power.

Suppliers. Are you searching your best electricity supplier or are you simply curious about the energy suppliers? In the UK two of the possibilities could be “Zero Carbon” by British Gas or Green Energy or another one Good Energy. Among the French electricity companies some are the Compagnie nationale du Rhône, the SHEM and the  UEM or Direct Energie which offers Pur Jus. Energy in another country, Germany? Here some societies or offers like AggerStrom Natur, 1·2·3energie, TelDaFax SunPower and PrimaKlima.
