Dr. George Hornberger: Energy and Environmental Decision-making
Dr. George Hornberger is the director of the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment (VIEE). www.vanderbilt.edu/viee. The Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and the Environment (VIEE) engages in research and education that directly link the social and behavioral sciences, physical sciences, engineering, law and policy, and that bear on energy and environmental decision making by individuals and by public and private institutions. Specifically, VIEE research elucidates the relationships among individual, institutional, and societal choices for energy production and use, and the impacts and benefits of these choices on the environment and health through links with climate, water quality, economics, social psychology, and natural resources. A key aim of VIEE is to create a strong multi-disciplinary undergraduate and graduate research and education program, which will evolve into a center of national and international leadership in this field. Understanding how hydrological processes affect the transport of dissolved and suspended constituents through catchments and aquifers is one of the main aims of studies of Earth surface processes. I have long-standing research interests in studying questions related to such processes, including current projects on the transport of dissolved organic carbon through catchments in collaboration with colleagues at Stroud Water Center. VIEE research is aimed at multidisciplinary assessments of the environmental impacts of individual, institutional, and societal choices related to energy, water, and climate. In this vein, I have current projects on nitrogen fertilizer use and fate as influenced by individual behavior, on life-cycle analyses of environmental footprints for an inland water transport company, and on the water-energy nexus in collaboration with a number of colleagues at Vanderbilt. I also am participating in collaborative research with colleagues at Vanderbilt and colleagues in Sri Lanka on studies of environmental impacts of energy and water use in a changing climate and on how household and farmer beliefs and behaviors affect and are affected by these responses.

The Problem of Power in Space. NASA's New Kilopower Reactor
Space is the worst. It’s got hostile radiation, a total lack of atmosphere, near absolute zero temperatures, problematic gravity wells, and worse. In order to keep your spacecraft alive in that environment, you need electricity to keep it warm. Not to mention all the power to run scientific instruments and the transmitters to send that data home. Getting enough power in space is a big problem.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

There’s a lot of sun and a lot of wind. They’re free. They’re clean. No CO2 emissions. So, what’s the problem? Why do solar and wind combined provide less than 2% of the world’s energy? To answer these questions, we need to understand what makes energy, or anything else for that matter, cheap and plentiful. For something to be cheap and plentiful, every part of the process to produce it, including every input that goes into it, must be cheap and plentiful. Yes, the sun is free. Yes, wind is free. But the process of turning sunlight and wind into useable energy on a mass scale is far from free. In fact, compared to the other sources of energy -- fossil fuels, nuclear power, and hydroelectric power, solar and wind power are very expensive. The basic problem is that sunlight and wind as energy sources are both weak (the more technical term is dilute) and unreliable (the more technical term is intermittent). It takes a lot of resources to collect and concentrate them, and even more resources to make them available on-demand. These are called the diluteness problem and the intermittency problem. The diluteness problem is that, unlike coal or oil, the sun and the wind don’t deliver concentrated energy -- which means you need a lot of additional materials to produce a unit of energy. For solar power, such materials can include highly purified silicon, phosphorus, boron, and a dozen other complex compounds like titanium dioxide. All these materials have to be mined, refined and/or manufactured in order to make solar panels. Those industrial processes take a lot of energy. For wind, needed materials include high-performance compounds for turbine blades and the rare-earth metal neodymium for lightweight, specialty magnets, as well as the steel and concrete necessary to build structures -- thousands of them -- as tall as skyscrapers. And as big a problem as diluteness is, it’s nothing compared to the intermittency problem. This isn’t exactly a news flash, but the sun doesn’t shine all the time. And the wind doesn’t blow all the time. The only way for solar and wind to be truly useful would be if we could store them so that they would be available when we needed them. You can store oil in a tank. Where do you store solar or wind energy? No such mass-storage system exists. Which is why, in the entire world, there is not one real or proposed independent, freestanding solar or wind power plant. All of them require backup. And guess what the go-to back-up is: fossil fuel. Here’s what solar and wind electricity look like in Germany, which is the world’s leader in “renewables”. The word erratic leaps to mind. Wind is constantly varying, sometimes disappearing completely. And solar produces little in the winter months when Germany most needs energy.

Audrey Mascarenhas - Energy vs  Environment, Do we have to choose?
As Western Canada and the oil and gas resource sector look forward to what could be a turnaround after two years of fiscal restraint, a much heated debate is occurring over whether we can develop our resources in an acceptable manner for all. The Alberta provincial government and Canada’s federal governing party have both promised changes that consider environmental improvements. Upcoming mandates on the reduction in methane emissions from oil and gas wells could cost the industry millions of dollars over the next several years. Can these environmental objectives be met and still ensure a strong and viable energy industry that is so vital to our province and country? At this upcoming Enbridge Research in Action seminar we will provide a perspective and showcase a Cleantech solution provider growing its presence and business over the past two years within the oil and gas sector while providing emissions control, social permission, regulatory support; all while offering its customers innovation at a lower price so that all stakeholders succeed. About the speaker: Audrey Mascarenhas has worked in energy for over 30 years with Gulf Canada Resources Ltd. and Questor Technology Inc.

What Can We Learn from Energy Development in Iceland?
Iceland is a country with virtually no fossil energy resources but has eectively developed geothermal and large scale hydropower to meet domestic needs and spur economic development. With a small, isolated population, immense natural resources and arctic environment, Iceland shares many similarities with Alaska but has taken a very different approach to enacting policies that attract industry, address energy security, and encourage economic growth. UAF researchers and students recently traveled to Iceland with the goal of identifying energy development lessons from our arctic neighbors.

An example of the new generation of environmental management and policy problems that will require innovative approaches is water stewardship. We are now living in an era of "post-stationarity," that is, a period when assumptions about stable environmental and ecosystem conditions are no longer valid. Consequently, for the rest of the century, the world is expected to face much higher levels of risk associated with water stressed regions, both in the form of access to clean water as well as exposure to severe floods and droughts. .Environmental issues are arguably the most pressing problem of the 21st century. These problems stem from patterns of human interaction with the earth and its ecosystems, and from unsustainable use of natural resources.

The Solar Garden is an Educational Environment Center
The environmental issue has gathered momentum in Israel, too, and it has become a public consensus that in order to bring about a behavioral change, there must be an investment in education. The purpose of the solar garden is to enhance a change in the public perception regarding the environment. Today, school children from different grades are visiting the garden. The garden is divided into three disciplines: energy, water, and resources. [Yaniv Fieldust, CEO, "The Solar Garden"]: "When presenting each of the disciplines we touch first on the existing status, examine its problems and how we can improve the situation by changing the way we make use of resources and by using technologies." Water can be used more than once, perhaps even countless times. In this facility the water from the fish pond goes to a green basin where vegetables are grown. Tiny germs living on the sea shore turn fish manure into a fertilizer, and this way the water, too, is purified. From there the water returns again to the fish pond, so that the fish always have clean water. Learning occurs through experiencing and by using all the senses. [Yaniv Fieldust, CEO, "The Solar Garden"]: "Children need to learn by touching, through the senses: through the sense of smell, the sense of hearing, the sense of taste." Nothing goes to waste. The children learn how to recycle paper, how to manufacture new sheets of paper. And what have the children learned in the various workshops? [Noam Shapira, Student of Sharet School, Pardes-Hanna]: "We took an old bottle and cut it in half, and then we made half a circle and got a sort of a ping-pong paddle. We made balls from old newspapers and then we could actually play." [Sasha Abramovitz, Student of Sharet School, Pardes-Hanna]: "What I liked best was to burn the wood with the help of the magnifying glass. It's like the sun took its rays, as if its heat reached the magnifying glass and the glass burned the wood." In the solar garden one can also learn how to manufacture electricity by using coal and oil, and there is no end to the imagination. [Guy Raphaelovitz, Student of Sharet School, Pardes-Hanna]: "You make electricity from such a boat, and it is transferred to that wheel that turns around, and then it goes to the electricity of the poles." In making flutes out of reeds, as our forefathers have done in different cultures, the children acquired an additional value: working in cooperation with each other. [Yaniv Fieldust, CEO, "The Solar Garden"]: "Once the children take that knowledge home with them and pass it on to their parents, the parents change their behavior as well. They start recycling bottles; It starts with bottles." Hopefully, the next generation will be prepared for saving the natural resources which are running short, and for making use of renewable energies.
