Iceland Plans to Export Geothermal Energy

Comments Off on Iceland Plans to Export Geothermal Energy

Iceland sits on one of the world’s greatest geothermal hot spots and a recent discovery of underground lava has increased the amount of geothermal energy the county could be harnessing.  Iceland already gets 81 percent of its electricity from the renewable resource and expects to be fully powered by renewable energy by 2050.  With most of its energy needs met, it wants to share with the rest of Europe. Iceland’s biggest utility company, Landsvirkjun, has announced a plan to build the world’s longest undersea cable at 1,180 miles long to carry up to five billion kWh of electricity a year to European countries — enough to power 1.25 million homes.  That much energy would be worth several hundred million dollars

Comments Off on New Electrical Generator Could Be 40% More Efficient

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratory are developing a new gas turbine to increase the efficiency of conventional electrical power plants with a generation system that could increase the thermal-to-electric conversion efficiency by 40 to 50 percent. Electrical generation is an especially dirty process when coal is being used as the fuel source. It’s not too efficient, either, with only about 1/3 of the energy from the burned coal being turned into useful electricity.
