RENEWABLE ENERGY

  1. Emergent of Global Renewable Energy:  Renewable energy is defined as energy that is not emanated from fossil or nuclear fuel but derived from natural resources that are predictably replenished at a faster rate than they are consumed such as hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, and biomass;
  2. Nevada Solar One Project: The Biggest Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Plant in the World:  Nevada Solar One Project (NSOP) is indeed the biggest CSP plant installed in the world in the last 19 years and the third biggest in absolute terms behind the two 80 MW facilities constructed in the Mojave desert in the early 1990s.  CSP technology uses thousands of mirrors to reflect and concentrate sunlight onto a central point to generate heat, which in turn is used to generate electricity.
