By Robert E. Parkin

В будущем, благодаря новым разработкам, которые должны привести к снижению затрат и повышению эффективности, солнечные технологии будут иметь гораздо большее значение, нежели сейчас. Все больше и больше появляется зарядных устройств на солнечных батареях для мобильной техники, что на самом деле очень удобно. По всему миру все больше и больше архитекторов при строительстве используют активные и пассивные солнечные системы и учатся включить их в строительные конструкции. В некоторых местностях, с экономической точки зрения, солнечные системы горячего водоснабжения могут конкурировать с обычными системами.

However, it was only until 1855 that the use of coal surpassed that of charcoal, made from wood. product=coal&graph=production. Energy Information Administration, International Energy Statistics. 3: Coal Usage in China The earliest use of oil, as far as we know, was from oil seepages in the Middle East about 3000 BC; the oil was used for ship caulking and road construction, but apparently was not used as fuel. They then figured out that the gas could burn, so they used it to dry the brine into salt.

It produced about 5,900 barrels of oil a day, but was not financially successful, so it was closed in 1991. The Green River Formation — an assemblage of over 1,000 feet of sedimentary rocks that lie beneath parts of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming — contains the world’s largest deposits of oil shale. Now efforts are underway to develop economical extraction of Devonian oil. Oil shale is a viscous form of petroleum called bitumen that may not flow at the ambient temperature. The economic cost of this disposal could be largely mitigated if a commercial use for it could be found.

S. coastal areas near Washington and Oregon. K. 14, we see the west coast of Ireland, Scotland and Iceland have the best potential for producing electricity from waves [“Wave Energy Utilization in Europe: Current Status and Perspectives,” by the European Thematic Network on Wave Energy]. The book by David Ross, Power from the Waves, Oxford University Press, 1995, provides a good initiation into the study of wave energy. Of this total, the United States produces about 80 GW, about 12% of the nation’s consumption.
