Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Urgent Evoke - no power credit needed;just input.

Finding ideas on sustainable energy has not being easy as I intially thought,it has been tough;not in the sense that there are no ideas out there.

There are many ideas,however,I find that most these ideas are one dimensional in the sense that they are focused on one type of technology -microbial fuel;hydro;solar etc.All these are credible concepts(some better than others).But since the only thing that is constant in life is change.

I think one has to consider whether these technologies take into account the some of the factors that could possibly influence change within a particular context:

  • location:this will determine the type of technology appropriate for the area [topography considerations].
  • electricity usage: on avarage what do people use electricity on;how much of it.
  • wind:is it strong enough?;etc
  • solar: is there enough radiation to generate electricty for the"area" ; storm-dust.
  • hydropower system: is the water source perenial/or not; strong enough current ?
  • resource availbilty:what else does the area have that can give a certain technology an advantage over others.
  • cost:socio-economic status of the region
  • etc[I don't think I have exhausted factors that might influence the appropriate off the grid technology]

Some of these things change with seasons - does the technology cater for these changes ?

These factors will determine whether such a technology is actually sustainable,and I find that a hybrid solution[a combination of one or more of these technologies] is the "best solution" since it will anticipate changes within the particular context;I have yet to find someone who has a hybrid solution or am I looking in the wrong places ;asking the wrong questions- please help.

Thanks in advance

You are asking some really important questions here. Sustainability is the long term goal and site specifics are going to be really important to meeting the goal. This is a great laundry list to look at as one considers building local and regional renewable power systems regardless of where you are in the world!

There is an agent with a hybrid solution the he just posted named Karamveer Lalh. Check out his hybrid wind/solar generator.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
