Wind energy projects in municipalities / Windkraftprojekte in den Kommunen
by Dipl.-Ing. Markus Bauer, IHK Zetis GmbH, Germany

Municipalities establish areas for wind energy and set the framework. They make with the institutions of major regional planning requirements for the use of wind energy in regional plans, zoning and development plans. In the context of regional planning and the rules regarding the authorization law, municipalities have the option of specific organization managing wind energy projects. They can also suggest on their own areas suitable for regional planning. ...

Anatomy of a Small Scale Hydropower system
by Neil Packer, Staffordshire University, UK.

Solar energy evaporates seawater producing clouds and, when droplets attain enough mass, gravity attracts the water back to the ocean as rain. Alternatively if this rain falls over high ground and is channelled into fast moving rivers and streams we have the opportunity to extract some of its energy by separating some of the flow for passage through water turbine/generator sets to produce electricity.
