Non-Nuclear Clean Energy

Clean Energy Resources, unlike nuke, could be quickly replaced and brought back on line in case of a natural disaster and without causing years of possible health problems as well as decades of contamination! We should have already been heavily involved in clean energy and advancements in, as this was once started but stopped in it's tracks some three decades back!

Report: Non-nuclear clean energy to double by 2020

Mar 14, 2011 - As concerns mount over nuclear power safety in the aftermath of Japan's massive earthquake, a new report says other energy sources not derived from fossil fuels are expanding and will likely double market share within a decade.

Global revenue for solar photovoltaics (PV), wind power, and biofuels jumped 35% last year, compared to 2009, growing from $139.1 billion to $188.1 billion, according to the 10th annual report Monday by Clean Edge Inc., a U.S.-based research and advisory firm. Most of this growth was due to a doubling in solar PV installations and steady growth in the biofuels sector. For the first time in a decade, however, the wind market showed a slight decline.

The global market for solar PV skyrocketed from $2.5 billion in 2000 to $71.2 billion in 2010 and that for wind power surged from $4.5 billion in 2000 to more than $60.5 billion today, the report says. {continued}
