The ambitious project by the Portuguese government that aims to increase electricity generated from renewable sources to 45 percent by 2010 is not new news. However, what is new is that this is not just political bullshit, a lot of private investment has gone into it as well.

Today, the World’s largest Solar Power Plant opened in Portugal and it is expected to produce 20 gigawatt-hours per hour.

It was also announced today that EDP, the country’s biggest electricity utility, agreed to buy Horizon Wind Energy LLC of Texas from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. for $2.15 billion, becoming the world’s fourth largest wind-power producer.

I was watching a documentary on TV about the moon and I was impressed with the plans or project drafs they have for the moon.

One of the things that caught my eye was Lunar Solar Power. This is not anything new, but I just became aware of it.

Everyone knows that the consumption of electrical power is on the rise and unless we find a viable alternative solution to fossil fuels, we will ultimately run out of it.

The solution presented was Lunar Solar Power. Why? Because the moon has excellent conditions for Solar Power. The idea would be to install Solar panels on the moon, and transmit the collected power to earth through microwaves to receivers at sites located worldwide. Each receiver would supply commercial power to a given region. Such a receiver, called a rectenna, would consist of a large field of small rectifying antennas. Unlike sunlight, microwaves pass through rain, clouds, dust, and smoke. Power can be supplied to the rectenna at night Several thousand individual rectennas strategically located around the globe.

To enrich your knowledge about this you can start reading the following paper:

Yesterday, I got the MacOSX updates for the Daylight Saving Time’s change in the US.

Million of computers will be updated because in accordance with the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Daylight Saving Time has been expanded by three weeks this year. Beginning in 2007, the United States will observe Daylight Saving Time from the second Sunday in March (March 11) until the first Sunday in November (November 4). This represents a shift from ordinary Daylight Saving Time observance in the northern Hemisphere, with the period beginning two weeks earlier and ending one week later.

Why Is Daylight Saving Time Changing?

In an attempt to reduce energy consumption, the US Congress, in section 110 of the “Energy Policy Act of 2005″ announced plans to move the start and ending dates of Daylight Saving Time on the grounds that it allows more effective use of natural sunlight, diminishing the need for electric lighting during the “waking day.” All of Canada (except the regions that do not follow daylight saving) will also observe the new period to avoid possible economic losses from confusion with the United States. Bermuda has announced a similar plan. Studies will determine if this change remains permanent.
