MicroGrids – The Surprising Electric Gate to Clean Energy

It is all very well and good for me to publish a post about:

How To Get More Electricity For Your Community
BUT what if you can’t hook it up to your Utility Grid?

MicroGrids will upgrate the Big Grids

Renewables lead to Electricity.
The Gate to use this Clean Energy is the “Electricity Power Grid“.
BUT it needs a big infrastructure facelift / upgrade.
The whole world of electric grids are old or do not exist!
How do we fix this?

How to get More Electricity for your community – worldwide

You are sitting next to it!

Clean up the Climate and make Electricity!
Solve 2 problems with 1 action!


Every community worldwide has a pile of Solid Waste.

Within a year that Waste pile will start to make Gas/Methane.

What is your community going to do about the Methane?

>> Capture the Methane from your Garbage Dump. Get More Electricity.

CH4 Investments, Urgent Need to Use the Methane in Landfills

One of the quickest ways to reduce Methane in our skies
is CH4 Investments = Methane capture – part of Landfill Gas (LFG).

CH4 is Methane!
Methane is half of the GHG in Landfill Gas (RNG).
Make Fuel or Electricity from Landfill Gas!
Save the planet, use the Methane. At least 1 Landfill a day, every day!

We take the Value from Waste and the Climate Cleans Up!

Landfill Gas projects Worldwide – – – Clean up the Air, Now!

We Need Many More!

Do you have “MSW to Gas and Electricity Garbage Dumps” in your country?
The World is covered with Garbage Dumps seeping Methane.
We need to capture it all and put it to work!

Cleaner Energy Investments! Time to invest in your Landfill!

Capture Landfill Gas – to Reduce Methane in the atmosphere, contain MSWaste and make cleaner Fuel on the Spot!

We have some very important investments to make
to USE the GAS in the World’s Garbage Dumps
described as a “Bridge Gas”- much cleaner than fossil:
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)

We Need To USE THE CO2! …..For Industry – Big Market!

10 of the Big CO2 users in the Market!
Some suffer from Shortages!

Bring down the CO2 and USE IT on the surface of planet Earth!
There is a big market for CO2 as FeedStock for many, many, many industries!!!

SHORT – R. Buckminster Fuller


Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we have been ignorant of their value.

America! Clean Cool Air!! – Back To The Year 1800!!!

A Review: Ezra Klein interviews a Climate Clean-up Expert

America!!! Make it happen in the USofA!
The $370 billion Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) offers oodles of money to get back to Cool Clean Air for YOUR everyday life including tax credits, discounts, and rebates.

BUT, what is the big picture, which of these benefits should YOU use? What will the future bring? Things have already changed, Technology is improving things all the time!

If you have the time and like podcasts….Ezra Klein had a discussion with a climate expert about where we are with the big picture. ….. HOWEVER, I have some comments to make about what has changed since they talked in September.

In the mood to phase out fossil fuel? – Governance

Yes, Governance! One of the ESGs.
WOW! So much is already happening, TODAY, to phase them out.*
– Solutions through the law

“The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first “do no harm”, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety….” Polly Higgins, 2015

“We need to change the rules.”
Greta Thunberg, 2019

The World is too small for ….Pox?

Infections that pass from animals to humans are known as zoonotic diseases. Some of these also have the ability to pass from human to human once they make the jump across species.
In that respect, monkeypox has some similarities to Covid-19. But it’s been around a lot longer than the coronavirus behind the recent pandemic.

Critical Minerals & Rare Elements! ….. COLOSSAL WASTE RUSH

WOW! …the Critical Minerals & Rare Elements industry is already beginning to replace earth mines with “Urban Mining”.
See how fast “Industry” works to solve their own problems!?!
It has only been a few years!

Look here what recyclers have to work with!
This Year

The point herein is that every country, worldwide, needs their own Urban Mining = e-waste recycling. Below are examples of who is doing it and where your country can get help setting up your own operations.

In an earlier post, that says more about the reasons for this new WasteRush, here.

In this post:
Circular Mining
The Demand
The Suppliers – Technology
Rare earth elements await in Coal Mining Waste
The Suppliers – Collection+
Recycling “USED Renewables”
“WORLD RESOURCE USE” WILL DOUBLE BY 2060
