How to Drive Growth for Renewable Energy Sector
The best way to drive the development of future growth of the renewable energy sector would come from a combination of Private Tenders and Government. Similar strategies for energy growth have some foreign operations such as Namibia, South Africa, and companies from Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
The investments should be focused on innovation and creating technologies that would lead to further and faster development of very much needed renewable energy.
Companies are creating long-term goals to sync their business with government’s growth plans for the country. We should make a renewable energy the main contributor to the energy system and offer an environment-friendly sustainable zero emission power supply.
Global warming is a great problem for our time, and prioritizing renewable energy could be the answer to the emission problems that we have in the past few decades. Investments, innovations, and technologies in the field of renewable energy are the future of creating better solutions for our environment. Furthermore, through the development of the renewable energy sector, we will be able to create more jobs, generate infrastructures, investments, and lower energy costs.
From Russian meddling in the last US elections to fake news, tech giants are being held responsible for allowing many to use their products and services for political purposes by spreading any propaganda and something that became known as ‘fake news’.
The dark side of the internet is being discussed more than ever. Facebook and Twitter are not doing anything to stop spreading the fake news on their platforms, where people tend to get most of their news anyway, leaving them without any proper information.
Theresa May called all investors to pull their funds from companies that are not successful in removing terrorist propaganda. “Investors can make a big difference here by ensuring trust and safety issues are being properly considered, and I urge them to do so,” Theresa May said.
The impact of tech giants such as Facebook is enormous. During the 2016 US election, Russian posters created approximately 80 000 Facebook posts which reached almost 126 million people from the US. Facebook is upfront with their plans, releasing a statement: “We at Facebook were far too slow to recognize how bad actors were abusing our platform. We’re working diligently to neutralize these risks now.”
Tech companies should be held responsible and be better regulated if we want governments to be more transparent.
Blockchain Bigger than Bitcoin
If you would like to make a smart investment, instead of bitcoin focus on systems that are blockchain based. From healthcare to voting, energy production to music, blockchain is so much bigger than bitcoin and it just might change the way we live our lives.
A blockchain can allow authentication of a transaction without being administered by a central authority. A start-up, Follow My Vote developed a blockchain-based system that will ensure transparency and security in the election process.
Also, blockchain can enable a homeowner to sell energy to the grid without going through any energy provider. For example, Lo3Energy runs a project in New York City where homeowners can bye the energy produced by rooftop solar panels.
Instead of services such as Spotify and Apple Music, a blockchain system, Voise can enable artists to set up a price and collect 100% when a user streams their music.
Blockchain can be beneficial when it comes to providing aid to third world countries and fighting corruption. In 2012, security general of the UN, Ban Ki-moon said that it is estimated that 30% of development aid was stopped or lost due to corruption. The YN developed a few blockchain-based projects trying to solve this issue. For example, the UN world food programme had a pilot project, providing Syrian refugees in Jordan with allowance in cryptocurrency. When someone would make a purchase at the supermarket, their identities would be authenticated and spending deducted from their accounts. The blockchain system in this example reduced the number of frauds and theft in providing proper aid to Syrian refugees.
