    Clean Energy View: Scott Davis Discusses Serious Microhydro

    in Energy

     
    Waterpower is the largest source of renewable energy in the world today, and microhydro is a mature, proven technology that can provide clean, inexpensive, renewable energy with little or no impact on the environment.
    Serious Microhydro brings you dozens of firsthand stories of energy independence covering a complete range of systems, from household pressure sites to higher pressure installations capable of powering a farm, business, or small neighborhood. Topics include: Low head and medium head sites, AC-only systems as well as ones using a battery/inverter subsystem, Stand alone power supply or grid intertie setups, and Hybrid systems (combined with photovoltaics or wind).
    With all the variables involved in microhydro, there is no “typical” system. These case studies represent the most comprehensive collection of knowledge and experience available for tailoring an installation to meet the needs of a site and its owner or operators. If you are considering building a system, you are bound to find a wealth of creative solutions appropriate to your own circumstances.
    Serious Microhydro shows how scores of people are achieving a high standard of living from local energy sources with a minimal ecological footprint. It has particular appeal to homeowners, teachers, renewable energy professionals, activists, and decision makers who want to understand the technology from a “hands-on” perspective.
    In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Scott Davis, an award-winning renewable energy project developer with decades of experience operating, installing, designing, selling, and teaching microhydro technology. He is a founder and president of Friends of Renewable Energy BC, and the author of Microhydro: Clean Power From Water.

    Clean Energy View: Renewable Energy Business Vs Non-Profit

    in Energy

     
    As we make the transition to renewable energy and energy efficiency, there are a myriad of opportunities to be found. While it is great to do your part, some people decide to take it to the next level and start a small business. Others that feel they sincerely wish to facilitate change opt to start a non-profit organization. While either choice can be very rewarding, there is a lot of information to consider before making this choice. The wrong decision can also be quite costly.
    In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, hosts, June Stoyer and host, Luis Mejia, Managing Partner, Murdock Capital Partners talk to energy expert and best-selling author, Scott Davis.
