On the coast of the British island of Walney in the Irish sea, southern part of the County of Cumbria, the world’s largest offshore wind farm Walney Extension came into operation.
87 wind turbines from the world-famous manufacturers Vestas and Siemens Gamesa, located on an area of 145 square kilometers, are ready to produce 659 MW of electricity. This is enough to supply 600,000 homes. The life span of the power facility is 25 years.
“The project is a sign of how dramatically wind technology has progressed in the past five years since the previous biggest, the London Array, was finished.
The new windfarm uses less than half the number of turbines but is more powerful”, The Guardian writes.
According to the ratings of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the UK leads the top three leaders in the generation of electricity from the power of sea wind. Great Britain is a home for about 36% of the world’s installed capacity, followed by Germany with 28.5% and China with 15%.
The reason for the success of the UK in wind energy is due to favorable natural conditions – a combination of high-speed wind flows and shallow waters in the Northern and Irish seas.
The annual report on the development of global wind power “Global Wind Report 2018” from GWEC says by the end of 2022, it is expected that the total capacity of all wind turbines in the world will be 840 GW. By 2050, wind will be able to meet up to 41% of the global energy demand.

Researchers from the University of Illinois and University of Maryland in their new research proved that the construction of giant wind and solar installations in the Sahara desert and the neighboring Sahel, can change its natural appearance and open very attractive economic opportunities for the hottest desert of the planet.
Thus, physicists, based on the real energy potential of the Sahara, as a starting point of the study proposed using computer modeling of wind and solar farms, built on almost entire territory of the Sahara, i.e. an area of about 9 million square kilometers, with the average power of each farm about 3 terawatts and 79 terawatts of electricity, respectively. By the way, the global energy demand in 2017 was estimated at only 18 terawatts.
Thus, concluded American scientists, rains and the rapid flowering of flora combined with clean electricity can greatly stimulate economic and social development in the Sahara, the Sahel Savannah, the Middle East and other nearby regions.
According to the UN experts, the energy produced from solar radiation in Sahel is enough to provide up to 70% of the world’s electricity needs.

The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.

Success doesn’t come to you… you go to it.

Fortune favors the brave.

Success is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration –

Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work, body and soul.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest -

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going –

Failure does not mean I'm a failure; It does mean I have not yet succeeded -

The only thing in life achieved without effort is failure...

Success is the child of audacity –

The import substitution program by local analogues is a significant contribution of Turkmenistan to the environmental protection. The establishment of production of domestic LED-lamps, which have already become a global «green» trend, became the next important step in this direction.
Light-Emitting Diode Lamps, also known as LED lamps, are one of the most environmentally friendly light sources. LED lamps are made from substances that exclude mercury or halogens, so they are not danger to the environment in case of damage or failure. This, in turn, facilitates transportation and disposal: when the lamp burns out, it can be discharged or recycled safely without fear.
«Aydyn gijeler» Economic Society in cooperation with the «Turkmenmashynstroy» Concern under the Ministry of Industry of Turkmenistan has been producing LED lamps since February 2017. From the beginning of this year, about half a million of green light sources came in the local market.
The main advantage of LED-lamps from «Aydyn gijeler» is a long useful time. LED lamps estimates 20,000 to 50,000 hours of guaranteed useful life (from two to five years).

About 20 years ago, a plastic bottle, delighted many of us with its consumer qualities and practicality.
People of the older generation spent most of their lives in the world of glass containers, which must be treated carefully, for fear of breaking it. Plastic dishes are not fragile.
Then a little time passed, and the society satiated with PET waste. Of course, people still buy various liquids in plastic packaging, but now they are no more stored in houses, because they, if not discarded, have a strange property – accumulate in an apartment in large quantities. Therefore, they are thrown out, without regret.
However, it turns out that it is not a right way to solve the issue. Plastic proved to be “immortal”, because it cannot be disposed at regular way.
What to do with this giant amount of solid household waste such as plastic bottles, packages and other containers in the big city? In addition, how this issue supposed to be solved at the country level? Experts warn that PET waste is a serious environmental problem. Moreover, in the Central Asian countries the problem of plastic waste is quite acute.
