Energy. A sudden loss of oil supplies would make it impossible to meet world energy needs. Countries have very varying stocks of natural gas which they could tap, and Johansen says such resources would be quickly depleted.
October 22 is World Energy Day, an important day to not only be aware of, but to explore possible options to find ways to support the positive initiatives it represents.
The WBCSD is a CEO-led organization of forward-thinking companies that galvanizes the global business community to create a sustainable future for business, society and the environment.

Wood River receives Canadian and domestic crude oils, including from U.S.- advantaged sources, and other foreign crude oil. The refinery produces a high percentage of transportation fuels, such as gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels. Other products include petrochemical feedstocks, asphalt and coke.
Most combustion turbine owners/operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) measure gas composition and interchangeability using the “Wobbe Index.” The Wobbe Index defines the heating value of a quantity of gas that will flow though a hole (combustion turbine burner tip) of a given size in a given amount of …
It was delisted from the Australian Securities Exchange on 29 June 2005. The company name was later subsumed by the BHP Billiton corporate identity, and a significant name in Australian mining history ceased to be used.
With the final blade in place, the SG 14-222 DD prototype has become the world’s largest and most powerful turbine to be installed, taking the mantle from GE Haliade-X 14 MW prototype operating in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
A typical drag coefficient for wind turbine blades is 0.04; compare this to a well-designed automobile with a drag coefficient of 0.30.
The Best Wind Turbines and Blade Design Turbines are designed with either a horizontal or a vertical axis. Their blades are flat, rounded, or curved. In generating electricity, a horizontal-axis turbine with a three-blade design is most efficient for energy production.
