Disaster Risk Reduction Is A Development Issue
 
04:47
A changing climate and rapidly growing exposure to disaster risk presents the world with an unprecedented challenge. For developing countries, both less able to cope with the impact and more likely to be affected, the challenge is particularly severe. These countries face mounting losses from a range of natural hazards, from earthquakes and tsunamis through to severe flooding, storms and drought. We face the threat of decades of development progress being rolled back and poverty becoming entrenched. Meanwhile, climate change cuts across society, from agriculture to health, energy to water resources. UNDP’s work is to integrate issues of climate, disaster risk and energy at country level, and focus on building resilience and ensuring that development remains risk-informed and sustainable.

Robben Island's 666.4 kW solar PV and battery storage microgrid
 
03:29
http://www.solafuture.co.za/news/robben-island-solar-microgrid-power-of-solar-pv-and-batteries Last week, the minister of Tourism opened the Robben Island solar PV microgrid. The system, situated on the World Heritage Site, consists of 1960 solar panels combined with a logic-controlled battery storage system, forming a microgrid that will significantly reduce the island’s fossil fuel consumption. The microgrid was designed and constructed by SOLA Future Energy. Commissioned by the Department of Tourism in South Africa, the solar system will move the island away from its reliance on diesel generators and toward the sustainable resource of the sun. Previously, the island relied on generators to supply its electricity for residential needs, desalination, the harbour and offices – the island uses almost 2M kWh of electricity annually. The new solar system will produce almost 1M kWh of electricity annually, significantly reducing costs of transporting diesel to the island and using it for electricity generation. The microgrid consists of three power production elements, including a solar PV farm, lithium-ion battery bank and diesel generators. The solar PV farm consists of 1960 mono-crystalline modules with a total of 666.4 kW of capacity, whilst the battery bank, consisting of 2420 lithium-ion battery cells, is able to store 837 kWh and output a maximum of 500 kVA. Introducing solar PV and batteries into Robben Island’s energy mix required careful programming of multiple controllers, in order to continue a seamless supply of power to the island. This smart microgrid is able to switch energy sources whenever necessary - and preemptively - in order to secure continuous power. “Robben Island is the largest combined solar and lithium-ion storage systems in South Africa,” said Dom Wills, CEO of SOLA Future Energy. “Battery technology is making it not only possible, but really affordable, for medium-size energy users to be powered almost entirely by the sun”. Solar technology has long been touted as a cleaner energy option, but technological advances in battery technology over the past 5 years have made microgrid systems competitive options for commercial and industrial energy users to go off-grid. For Robben Island, going “off-grid” is figurative – it has never been connected to South Africa’s utility grid. However, the solar system will ensure that the island reduces its fossil fuel consumption dramatically – by nearly 300 000 litres of diesel per annum. This will result in a reduction the Island’s carbon emissions by 860 tons, as well as a significant monetary saving. SOLA Future Energy, a South African company that designs, builds and maintains solar systems for commercial and industrial buildings, was awarded the contract by the National Department of Tourism and has carried out the design and construction over the past year.

A.S.I.O. EYES GREEN GROUPS
 
00:37
AUSTRALIA'S leading counter-terrorism agency has been providing intelligence to the federal government on environmental groups that campaign against coalmining. The Australia Security Intelligence Organisation's politically sensitive monitoring of the campaigners comes after Resources and Energy Minister Martin Ferguson warned that protests at power stations and coal export terminals could have ''life-threatening'' consequences and ''major trade and investment implications''. Security officials have suggested privately that environmental activists pose greater threats to energy infrastructure than terrorists. But confirmation that ASIO has been monitoring and advising on security issues arising from such activism is likely to cause tensions between federal Labor and their parliamentary allies, the Australian Greens. Greens leader Bob Brown said yesterday it was ''intolerable that the Labor government was spying on conservation groups'' and condemned the ''deployment of ASIO as a political weapon'' against peaceful protests. ''Martin Ferguson is incorrigible. But it's not just Ferguson. It's the cabinet, it's the Labor government that's happy to use the police and ASIO against community groups, against ordinary people, on behalf of foreign-owned mining corporations,'' he said. Senator Brown said he would urgently take up the issue with the government, adding that former Labor attorney-general and civil libertarian Lionel Murphy ''would be spinning in his grave''. The Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism on Tuesday confirmed ASIO's role in advising on security issues relating to protests against coalmining when it refused to release under freedom of information a December 2010 ministerial brief on the possible disruption of energy infrastructure by protesters. The document has been wholly exempted from release because it contains sensitive information exchanged between federal, state and territory governments, and classified information derived from ''an intelligence agency document''. ASIO is exempt from freedom of information laws and is described on its website as ''the only agency in the Australian intelligence community authorised in the normal course of its duties to undertake investigations into the activities of Australian persons''. Other FOI documents confirm that Mr Ferguson pressed then attorney-general Robert McClelland in September 2009 to see whether ''the intelligence-gathering services of the Australian Federal Police'' could be used to help energy companies handle increasing activity by coalmining protesters. Mr Ferguson was particularly concerned about protests at the Hazelwood power station in Victoria, warning that ''protests such as this can lead to unlawful activity designed to directly compromise the delivery of essential services to Australians''. ''The risk of protest-related disruptions in the energy sector is likely to continue in the near future ... these disruptions pose a real threat to the reliable delivery of electricity and other essential services,'' he said. Such disruptions ''at critical times can have serious, and at times life-threatening, repercussions across the community''. Mr McClelland confirmed in reply in November 2009 that the AFP ''continually monitors the activities of issues-motivated groups and individuals who may target establishments through direct action, or action designed to disrupt or interfere with essential services''. Mr McClelland also highlighted the role of ASIO ''in intelligence gathering, analysis and advice in relation to protest activity [that] focuses on actual, or the potential for, violence''. He said that ''where warranted, ASIO advice may take the form of security intelligence reports, notification of protest action or threat assessments''. Other documents released under FOI have been heavily redacted to prevent disclosure of methods for ''preventing, detecting, investigating and dealing with illegal disruption to critical energy infrastructure'' - 12 April 2012.

What is more, the viability of these installations depending on the demand you face as hotel entrepreneurs will be analysed. Energy sources: Renewable Energy: solar energy, wind power, Geothermal energy, Biomass. Do not run out over time Non-renewable energy: Run out over time. Generate waste Solar energy: Solar thermal energy: Heat from the sun. Application: mainly hot water. Performance Save 80% on hot water. return on investment: 2-10 years. Photovoltaic: Light from the sun. Application: Isolated systems (irrigation, lighting, ...) and connected (solarium, rooftops ...). Performance Low (12-13%).. return on investment: Long term. Wind Power: It is the energy we collect from wind power. Advantage: It can be applied in a space that is being used for something else too. Advantage: - Good level of technological development and business competitiveness. - Implementation is fast and creates jobs. - Synergistic effect such as saving energy with alternative sources. Disadvantage: - Causes environmental problems. - It has technological limitations. To put this energy into your tourism business you must: analyse the wind, find a feasible place, have permission and take stock of the energy you consume and that which you want to implement. Geothermal Energy is extracted from the heat beneath the surface of the Earth by an underground heat pump. Uses the Earth as an energy source during cold periods or as an energy dissipater in summer. Advantage: - Resource availability. - High energy efficiency and high durability. - No effect on the landscape. Disadvantage: - Very high implementation costs. - Risks of toxic contaminants and emission of energy sources (heat). - Limitation on their location in places. - Can cause environmental problems. - Limited capability to cool spaces. Biomass is obtained by burning wood residues, fodder from crops, food waste, paper, manure and other byproducts. Advantages: Can be stored, Low cost. Disadvantages: Contaminates, can require a lot of resources.

Restoring the Dry Creek Salt Field in South Australia
 
02:06
In South Australia, an area of important coastal habitat that has been cut off from the sea is being restored. Learn about this project that has reconnected a degraded intertidal wetland to the life sustaining waters of the sea for the first time in decades. The Dry Creek Salt Field located 30 minutes’ drive from Adelaide in South Australia has produced salt from the evaporation of seawater since the 1930s. Following the salt field’s closure, as a trial, a small pond was isolated from the rest of the salt field and reconnected to the sea via a tidal creek. The creek now delivers water flows to the degraded site and the process of restoration has begun. The results? So far, we’ve seen a rapid restoration of the water and soil quality. And for the first time in decades, vegetation, fish and invertebrates are beginning to reinhabit the pond. Restoring the wetland will also help better protect the coast and even provides a ‘blue-carbon’ opportunity. Find out more about how we’re bringing new life to our coastal environments at www.environment.sa.gov.au/coasts This initiative was funded by the South Australian Government with a significant contribution from the Australian Government through Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges’ Samphire Coast Icon Project. It could not have proceeded without the assistance and goodwill of the following partners: - University of Adelaide - Buckland Dry Creek Pty Ltd - Royal Park Salvage - Department for Energy and Mining - Natural Resources Adelaide Mt Lofty Ranges - Environment Protection Authority - Primary Industries and Regions SA
