Renewable energies: why?

The concerns about the environment, nowadays shared by most part of the public opinion, deriving from the damages caused by the energy chain – black tides, nuclear accidents, methane leakages etc- have highlighted the weak points of fossil fuels.

The evolution of our system of life, by now hungry of energy, has led to the progressive depletion of traditional fuels, but also to climate changes: the increase of the global temperature is ascribable to the emissions of greenhouse gases.

The necessary struggle against the climate heating has imposed new energy models to the global economy.

The revision of the present energetic model has as natural outcome the gradual giving up of fossil fuels (exhaustible and polluting) in favour of renewable sources.

Energies from renewable sources
The main characteristic of renewable sources lies in the availability and in a regenerative capacity that exceeds their consumption. Qualities that make them potentially inexhaustible.

The European regulation (directive 2001/77/CE) recognizes as renewable energy sources the following non-fossil sources: wind, solar, geothermic, wave-motion, tide-motion, hydraulic, biomass, dumping gases, residual gases from depuration processes, biogases.

Gruppo Bioenergie, through its controlled companies, has been successfully operating for years in the sector of biomasses and has undertaken some projects for the production of renewable energy in the wind, solar and biogas field.
