What is alternative energy? Energy resources are divided into non-renewable and renewable according to their ability to be obtained quickly in the natural environment. Non-renewable resources include fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas), which are produced much more slowly than they are consumed. The definition of renewable resources is rather vague. This group includes various […]

The World’s First Eco-City of the Future – Masdar City Our polluted ecosystem can no longer cope with all of its natural mechanisms on its own, and this is the fault of human actions. Or the influence we unknowingly have on it. This article presents one way to properly influence the planet’s ecosystem. An example […]

Features of an eco-city. A sustainable, stable, or ecological city is built to minimize the negative impact on the environment. In such settlements, one tries to reduce water and energy consumption, and eliminate carbon dioxide air pollution and unreasonable heat emission. The word “eco-city” was first used in the book “The Berkeley Eco-City” by Richard […]

A hybrid car is a vehicle that is powered simultaneously by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor.

What is an electric vehicle? There are probably fewer and fewer people in today’s world who have never heard of this type of vehicle as an electric vehicle (or electric vehicle, EV). Electric cars are cars that are powered by one or more electric motors, which, in turn, are powered by rechargeable batteries or other […]

Solar power is one of the largest alternative energy and renewable energy sources (RES) segments. Today, it is customary to distinguish between three main solar energy technologies: solar energy can be used to generate electricity (photovoltaics, PV), to obtain concentrated thermal energy for subsequent power generation (concentrated solar power, CSP), or direct heating of the […]

Low Impact Development (LID) has been defined as “development that, through its adverse environmental impacts, either enhances or does not significantly degrade the quality of the environment.” The relationship between potential developers and UK planning authorities since the 1980s has led to a multitude of unique, locally adapted developments, often using natural, local, and reclaimed […]
