Liberals are so damn fake that I would rather be a toad than to be a Liberal. Lets be for real here there is no alternative energy out there that is 100% clean. Batteries are full of acid and you need to burn coal or use nuclear energy to produce electricity. Please don’t mention solar panels cause they are still in the developing stage and its going to take many years before we get one that works decent.
Meanwhile we do have a great alternative energy that produces very little CO2 and everyone is embracing it except the Liberals. You can’t just jump into electrical energy when it isn’t ready so something in between is perfect. With Natural Gas we can reduce pollution by more than half within a few years. Everyone is embracing it too and GE the one working with windmills and solar panels agrees with me. That is why they don’t want to work in America. ITS BECAUSE OF THE LIBERALS THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY WANT.
General Electric, a leading producer of gas-turbines and wind power, wants Congress and the Obama administration to pass a clear energy policy that sets green standards while recognizing natural gas’ importance as a backbone to alternative energy plants, a leading GE executive said Thursday.
The company, which is headquartered in Fairfield, Conn., recently unveiled plans for a “FlexEfficiency” power plant pairs with wind and solar energy but relies on natural gas to ensure that power needs are met even when wind or sun conditions are poor for energy production.
Paul Browning, President and CEO of GE Thermal Products, spoke Thursday about the future of FlexEfficiency technology in the United States.
Paul Browning, president and CEO of GE Thermal Products, headquartered in Schenectady, N.Y., said at a meeting with reporters that the mix will allow for a record 61-percent fuel efficiency — meaning 61 percent of fuel burned is turned into useful energy. That’s 15 percentage points better than existing flexible, gas-fired power technology. He said in the past, plants have allowed either efficiency or flexibility, but never both at this level.
But he said it could be hard to attract investors to the technology in the United States, because the country lacks clear-cut laws that encourage clean energy use and allow companies to know whether they can recoup their investment after they buy into the efficient but initially expensive plants
He said the European 20-20-20 policy, which mandates the use of 20 percent alternative fuels, a 20 percent increase in energy efficiency and a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, creates a much better environment for the technology.
“That’s a very clear thing for a business like mine to plan around,” he said. “When you look at the U.S., where is the analog to that?”
“It’s hard for companies to make those long-term bets,” he said.
Browning also said GE’s new technology relies on natural gas, and the company wants to encourage a U.S. policy that recognizes the fuel’s importance to the future of alternative-energy plants.
