Seven technologies of the future that will serve to economize energy

Sometimes it is hard for us to apply any changes. However, technologies develop in extreme tempo today and we must follow the rhythm. Some of the ongoing technological changes will not only change the ways of consuming energy, but become an important part of our lives.
1. Sonic water cleaner
CO2 connections get cleaned when water molecules are hit by ultrasonic wave. Sonic water cleaner uses this phenomenon and we must admit that gives a new dimension to the process of cleaning.
2. Geothermal pumps
Gathering and use of the Earth’s thermal energy for heating and cooling of buildings becomes more and more popular.
3. Wind generator
Wind is accessible in a great quantity and can be used without any harm to nature. The only limiting factor is a necessity of very strong wind to make generator work. Nowadays researchers are eager to build a wind generator that would work even with a weak wind.
4. Solar innovations
The word “solar” became pretty popular lately. There are solar cooking, solar architecture, solar heating and who knows what else tomorrow will bring. Solar energy received by means solar panels is used for various needs.

Modernization of the Tashkent thermoelectric power plant, prospects and capabilities

One of the biggest thermoelectric power plants of Uzbekistan is being reconstructed at the moment in order to decrease consumption of combustible fuel and decrease the rate of noxious wastes discharged into environment. Tashkent thermoelectric power plant was established in 1963. Power plant is situated in Qibray district, 15km north-east from the capital.

 

Its rated power is 1860 MW. Plant’s primary equipment are 12 condensing units each presenting a power of 155 MW. The primary fuel is natural gas constituting 85 percents of the total fuel. Fuel-oil is a reserve one and constitutes 15 percents. Tashkent thermoelectric power plant provided capital with energy for many years.

Perspectives for development of renewable sources of energy in Uzbekistan

More than 300 sunny days every year in Uzbekistan, mountain rivers usable for generation of energy with low expenses, great climate – this amazing natural potential can make a fantastic good for the country, especially with a proper use of renewable energy sources. Popularity of the so-called “green” energetics grows very fast all over the world.
Uzbekistan possesses reserves of hydrocarbons and natural gas, but they aren’t renewable sources of energy. That’s why one of the essential tasks not only for energetics, but for economics of Central Asia region as well is to realize a constructive and efficient use of the possessed potential and draw renewable sources of energy into energy balance.
Many experts and specialists think Uzbekistan possesses a huge potential for implementing of alternative sources of energy and because of that fact government of Uzbekistan pays great attention to that problem last years. Measures are taken in order to increase the awareness of scientists, specialists and population. Idea of alternative sources of energy is backboned by state mass media and becomes more and more popular.
A seminar dedicated to the problem of renewable sources of energy was organized in Uzbekistan on 28 of June 2012. The topic was “Perspectives for development of renewable sources of energy in Uzbekistan”. Coordinator of OSCE projects in Uzbekistan organized debates on development of bill concerning renewable energy. Project of the bill was developed by group of parliamentarians from Olij Majlis of Uzbekistan.
Coordinator of OSCE projects in Uzbekistan, ambassador, Dierd Sabo in his speech noted efforts of our republic in implementation of renewable sources of energy. He emphasized the importance of sharing experience between scientific institutions, companies and non-governmental organizations in OSCE region.
“Nowadays renewable sources of energy present only 1 percent of total energy consuming. Within this project we want to share the 40 years experience of OSCE member countries and make our deposit to environmental protection”, - he said.
“Investment in renewable sources of energy must as well improve national business sphere by means of creating new jobs and vacancies. The increase of manufacture and use of renewable sources of energy can greatly improve situation in distant regions of Uzbekistan”, - pointed Mr. Sabo.

Eco-energy will help the village

Energy consumption is an indispensable condition of human existence. The Republic of Uzbekistan possesses large reserves of fuel raw materials, but one should remember that they are nonrenewable and may be exhausted in the long run. So far, they need to be used carefully and efficiently. Alternatively, we should develop the alternative production of power (wind, solar and etc.). The Republic has the great capacity of using renewable energy sources and further development of the alternative production of power. Introduction of practical application of the renewable energy sources (RES) in the rural area is especially important, it will help to raise  living standards in the remote areas. There are many possibilities now. We already have at our disposal a great choice of using various technologies of solar wind and biomass energies.
