Renewable Energy Solutions for IT


Advantages

Advantages

  • Solar cells are long lasting sources of energy which can be used almost anywhere.

  • Solar cells provide cost effective solutions to energy problems in places where there is no mains electricity.

  • Rooftop power is a good way of supplying energy to a growing community.

  • Solar cells can also be installed in a distributed fashion, i.e. they don't need large scale installations. Solar cells can easily be installed on roofs which means no new space is needed and each user can quietly generate their own energy.


Disadvantages

Disadvantages

  • The main disadvantage of solar energy is the initial cost.

  • Most types of solar cell require large areas of land to achieve average efficiency.

  • Solar energy is currently thought to cost about twice as much as traditional sources (coal, oil etc).

Why would you use renewable instead of coal fired generators

Why would you use renewable instead of coal fired generators?

  • Coal fired power has been a cheap source of power and electricity since the beginning of the industrial revolution.

  • Cheap and plentiful, coal's problems were often overlooked because of its very low price.

  • However, as a fuel, solar energy is free and clean.

  • As a result, many people believe that solar power will eventually overtake coal as our main source of electricity. Solar is a newer technology, with problems that likely will be solved over time.


Recommendations

Recommendations

  • The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) plays a key role in planning the national electricity transmission grid, centering on the annual National Transmission Network Development Plan.

  • The Government has asked AEMO to expand its planning scenarios to prepare for greater use of renewable energy.

  • This will include further consideration of energy market and transmission planning implications of moving towards 100 per cent renewable energy.


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • Geothermal Energy could be utilised as a clean energy source allowing further development of renewable energy sources.

  • IT systems could reduce their energy footprint making them more suitable for powering by renewable energy sources.
