    Societal Impacts of Adoption of Alternative Agricultural Practices January - August TITLE: Societal Impacts of Adoption of Alternative Agricultural Practices AUTHOR: Jayne T. MacLean Alternative Farming Systems Information Center National Agricultural Library PUBLICATION DATE: October SERIES: QB   The role of natural gas in the EU’s energy transition is at the center of the societal debate. Some of the most substantial carbon emission reductions were achieved by switching from coal to gas, so natural gas has played a critical role in this transition. form of LNG to Europe and provide another alternative source of energy to the.

In , the United States imported about 11% of the petroleum it e transportation accounts for nearly three-fourths of total U.S. petroleum consumption, using more energy efficient vehicles like hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles can have a direct supports the U.S. economy and helps diversify the U.S. transportation fleet, as well as reduce the.   CCS technology is a viable mitigation option for reducing GHG emissions in fossil-fuel power plants. There are three main components of the CCS process: capturing CO 2 arising from the combustion of fossil fuels, transporting CO 2 to the storage site, and storing CO 2 for a long period of time, rather than being emitted to the atmosphere.. The three common technologies for CO 2 capture Cited by: 1.

Get this from a library. Some societal impacts of alternative energy policies. [Selwyn Enzer]. Alternative media are defined as small-scale politically radical media, using a wide spectrum of communication technologies and formats. They are described in connection with a series of major historical and twentieth century movements, which singly and collectively indicate the potential of such media for substantial societal impact.

Social and political impacts are important for renewable energy (or renewables). Since societal and political impacts are typically tightly inter-related they are being considered together.

A literature review was performed to determine the criteria that are elements of the social and political perspectives. Renewable energy policies Cited by: The Impacts of Policy on Energy Justice in Developing Countries Major barriers were attributed to the weak understanding of local contexts and societal needs.

Nevertheless, some projects. Access to modern energy services is vital for societal wellbeing and countries’ economic development. A modern energy system in tropical developing countries typically includes having reliable and affordable access to an improved cooking facility and having a connection to electricity (UNDP; Legros et al.

; IEA ).However, by the yearabout billion people worldwide relied on Author: Gudina Terefe Tucho. ENERGY MODEL IMPACTS In order to identify the impacts of the current energy model, they have been summarized in three main groups: environmental impacts [17], social impacts [18] (including.

An LCA estimates resource requirements, energy use, and environmental impacts of products or services at all life stages. The estimates may be derived from detailed, “bottom-up” analyses of mining, manufacturing, transport, construction, operations, and disposal processes or from “top-down” analyses based on national-scale economic input/output models.

Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy Technologies. Ewa Klugmann-Radziemska Gdansk University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry. Abstract. Nowadays, fossil fuels are the main sources energy from which electricity is obtained. But these sources will not last forever, so in due course renewable energies will have to replace them in this.

The impact of wind turbines on wildlife, most notably on birds and bats, has been widely document and studied. A recent National Wind Coordinating Committee (NWCC) review of peer-reviewed research found evidence of bird and bat deaths from collisions with wind turbines and due to changes in air pressure caused by the spinning turbines, as well.

More broadly, several solutions can help reduce the negative environmental impacts associated with generating electricity, including: Energy efficiency. End-users can meet some of their needs by adopting energy-efficient technologies and practices.

In this respect, energy efficiency is a resource that reduces the need to generate electricity. Energy Saving Solutions. Transition Energy. Despite past and present administration's hope that the transition from a society dependent on fossil fuels to a world of controlled population growth, sustainable economies and alternative green energies will be forthcoming, the vision seems a bit optimistic.

Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.".

Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a sustainable way is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. Worldwide. Managing energy-related environmental impacts is a main objective of energy policy and making energy development more sustainable at the national and international levels.

Energy policies for sustainable development are the critical challenge for energy sector development, as the energy sector is a significant driver of economic growth and has. Nevertheless, alternative policy propositions exist in all areas of the Agenda, and it is up to progressive actors in governments, parliaments, civil society and the private sector to gain the hegemony in the societal discourse to be able to put them into practice.

Towards coherent policies. Figure 1. Renewable energies, emissions, and health. This book chapter aims to establish a recent literature review on studies linking the establishment of renewable energy systems with their effect on health, distinguishing between the studies that are focused on the link between climate change and health with a global perspective, and those studies that link the effects of some specific Author: María del P.

Pablo-Romero, Rocío Román, Antonio Sánchez-Braza, Rocío Yñiguez. Nevertheless, national-level energy policies (implemented through mechanisms such as incentives, subsidies, research agendas, and federal regulations and guidelines) to enhance the benefits of wind energy while minimizing negative impacts would help in planning and regulating wind-energy development at smaller scales.

iv) Systematically link the impacts on the energy system to likely changes in the risk and magnitude of energy security impacts v) Summarize the impact of the climate change policies on energy security Generic options for climate change mitigation The overall aim of climate change policies is to reduce emissions of greenhouse Size: 2MB.

Additionally, many nations have set energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and emissions reductions targets. However, despite these goals, policy implementation is lacking.

On average, six of 15 countries have enacted regulatory renewable energy support policies, and five of 15 have enacted fiscal incentives and public financing.

The environmental impact of the energy industry is has been harnessed by human beings for millennia. Initially it was with the use of fire for light, heat, cooking and for safety, and its use can be traced back at least million years.

In recent years there has been a trend towards the increased commercialization of various renewable energy sources. Basically, the impact pathway sheds lights on some key points highlighted in the literature, regarding the transformation of research investments into societal impacts: the role of networks of actors, the importance of context, the two spheres of impacts on end-users, and the diversity of the impact dimensions by:.

the natural environment in societal development and had considered the impact of society on nature as inconsequential. Without a clear theory to guide the development of an alternative sociol-ogy of the environment, early efforts moved in a variety of directions that steered environmental sociology away from established theories of Size: KB.

Goals / Objectives The overall objective is to identify alternative policies that might be implemented for cost effective reduction of negative environmental impacts from agriculture. The focus is on working lands and also includes the potential extension of working lands (and thus the scope of potential impacts) as new demands from biomass energy might extend and/or intensify production on.
