Prospects for Renewable Energy


This lecture gives a short survey of renewable energy technologies and their applications. The focus lies on general issues rather than on technical details of various technologies.

First, the general difference between resource based energy use (oil, gas, coal, nuclear) and renewable energy use based on a constant flux (solar, wind, water, geothermal) is outlined within the context of different growth oriented "economic philosophies". Prerequisites and driving forces are outlined which set the framework for a fast and broad introduction of renewable energy technologies.

Finally different technologies are discussed with their potentials, their advantages and disadvantages. Presently we observe different levels of market introduction of renewable energy technologies in different countries, reflecting the various support mechanisms of these countries. These political support mechanisms are also discussed.
