[en] Attention is paid to the exploration and conversion methods of geothermal heat, investment and maintenance costs of geothermal power plants, both for the Dutch situation. Applications in different European countries are briefly discussed. 3 figs., 3 ills., 1 tab., 4 refs
[en] Further increase of the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has little effect on the greenhouse effect contrary to the effect of the increase of other greenhouse gases. However, politicians are using targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions that are unrealistic, taking into account the scientific uncertainties of the applied models, the doubts about the feasibility of quantitative targets and the economic consequences of such drastic measures. Some recommendations are given for a more realistic CO2 policy. Also attention is paid to the important role that coal will play in the future of the energy supply. 5 figs., 3 ills
[en] For more than 25 years (1952-1977) the Dutch electric power research institute KEMA put effort in the development of the so-called KEMA suspension test reactor (KSTR). Although the project is ended a long time ago it is an interesting aspect of the history of nuclear energy in the Netherlands and therefore briefly highlighted in this article
[en] Western organizations in the European Community and of the G7 countries set up aid programs to give financial and technical support to Eastern Europe to improve the safety of their nuclear power plants and reactors. Attention is paid to the safety of those plants, the contents of the bilateral and multilateral aid programs (Technical Assistance Commonwealth of Independent States or TACIS, and the Poland and Hungary Assistance to the Reconstruction of the Economy or PHARE) the amount of money involved, and how the programs can be carried out. 1 fig., 4 ills., 1 tab

[en] Waves can produce enough energy to supply the world with electricity five times the need. The first commercial wave power installation will be put into operation summer 2006 and a large number of projects are under development. However, the price for wave energy can not yet compete with conventionally produced electricity
[nl]Wereldwijd bevatten golven voldoende energie om vijfhonderd keer in de mondiale elektriciteitsbehoefte te voorzien. De eerste commerciele golfenergiecentrale gaat deze zomer in bedrijf en een groot aantal andere projecten staat op stapel. Golfenergie is wat betreft prijs echter nog niet concurrerend
[en] To find a useful and environment-friendly fuel is difficult. Lead and benzene already were replaced by methyl tertiary butylether (MTBE), but this fuel additive too appears to be hazardous for man and the environment. When MTBE will be banned the chances for so-called green petrol (made from biomass) are rising. A brief overview of the developments in the field of fuel additives so far is given
[en] In Norway a large research center on the capture of CO2 will be opened in the spring of 2012: the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad. It allows companies to test concepts for CCS (carbon dioxide capture and storage)
[nl]In Noorwegen wordt in de lente van 2012 een groot centrum voor onderzoek naar het afvangen van CO2 geopend: het CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad. Daar kunnen bedrijven hun concepten voor CCS beproeven.
[en] A brief overview is given in the enormous market for solar energy in Africa. Special attention is paid to one of the leaders in the market for solar energy: Free Energy Europe in Eindhoven, Netherlands. 3 refs
[en] The relatively reliable but also static electricity sector will in a few years change into a free market sector, including market shares, electricity exchanges and the inevitable rise of swinging persons. The market will regulate it all, but at the cost of what? An overview is given of the consequences of the liberalization process of the energy market in Europe
