Cost energy-equivalence law

  1. 1. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law Everything that arises, needs energy (2nd law of thermodynamics). This energy comes from the sun, from food, from manual labor, from conventional energy sources, etc. With the use of energy and raw materials begins wealth, bartering begins and life expectancy increases. Man is the dominant creature on Earth. The value of exchanged goods and raw materials is the equivalent of the energy stuck directly or indirectly therein. 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Stock 1
  2. 2. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law Energy is used more and more to tap raw materials. Slowly the barter trade is replaced by money transactions. As before, the products, money is now also an equivalent to the energy contained in the product. Only with the opening up of larger energy sources such as coal, oil and nuclear energy, manages the slow social upheaval to the affluent society. Social systems, democracy and decent life are accessible to more and more people of the rapidly growing world population. The increasing amount of money and commodities correlates to the value of the consumed energy. 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Stock 2
  3. 3. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law But goods and money (hence the energy) can also be destroyed: breaking the exchanged pitcher, crashes a hut purchased or whole regions are devastated in wars, the equivalent values o r parts of it are lost forever. 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing.

  4. 4. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law To summarize, money, or the value of a commodity or product is always the equivalent of the energy contained in. The vast majority of this energy comes from conventional energy sources. Development of additional energy sources enables a society to achieve prosperity and decent life. Is not enough energy available, the society remains poor, malnourished and with low life expectancy (eg third world). 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Stock 4
  5. 5. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law If commodities or products are subsidized, the government spends more energy (and money) to the producer, so they can be traded at all competitive in the market. An example is subsidisation of renewable energies. Conventional energy must be used to make renewables marketable. 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Stock 5
  6. 6. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law Renewable energy is a waste of conventional energies, every kWh subsidized "ecological energy" includes an equivalent from coal, nuclear or gas. The subsidies in renewables are missing to secure the social systems or to achieve for billion of people in other societies food, health and prosperity. With each kWh consumed “green electricity” is somewhere in the world a much needed medicine or a meal missing. Renewable energies are therefore only socially and economically justifiable to use when no subsidization is required. 08/31/14 Dipl.-Ing. Wilhelm Stock 6
  7. 7. Renewable energy and social responsibility The cost-energy-equivalence law Conclusion: • The subsidy of inefficient renewable energy must be stopped immediately in order to protect the environment by reducing emissions • Research in energy efficiency technologies, renewables and nuclear fusion must be increased to reach market maturity beyond the need for subsidies • The third world has to be supported in developing their own energy ressources for their own benefit How do you tell your children, that you have taken away and destroyed limited existing resources to consume unlimited additional existing resources such as wind and sun?
