President Obama 氏の支援グループへの私のメール
How do you do. 
 My name is yuuji matuoka , as a civil ocean engineer in japan , age 61. I want to show my presentation about the ocean development aiming at making the peaceful world to the President of Obama USA. ( : My this presentation is always my lifework. ) How do you come to be able to do it from poor life in rich life? How to change to be able to do it from the poor people to the plentful people? The Ocean Development was presented by J.F.Kennedy before about 40 years ago. Here are many objects on the subjects in these difficult big projects, but I believe it will be possible and succeed. Those many projects will be able to make up many jobs for worldwide people. The best leader will be present both The hope and The Dream for many people believing the leader. Please show to USA President Obama my presentation. I hope USA President Mr.Obama will succeed as Best excellent top leader in the world at 21century.
This is my presentation. : 私の海洋開発提案 : ノアの箱舟を創ろう-Super Floating Structure

First Post-Oil Spill Deepwater Drilling Permit Approved


 First Post-Oil Spill Deepwater Drilling Permit Approved

Posted on: Tuesday, 1 March 2011, 08:35 CST

A Houston-based energy company has been awarded a permit for deepwater drilling in the Gulf of Mexico--the first handed out by the US government since the lifting of a moratorium imposed in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, various media outlets are reporting.

Noble Energy had applied for a permit to bypass for a well located some 70 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) said in a Monday press release.

According to the Associated Press (AP), the company had begun drilling on the well just four days before the explosion onboard the BP-leased oil rig, which resulted in 11 deaths and would ultimately lead to one of the largest environmental disasters of its kind.

"This permit represents a significant milestone for us and for the offshore oil and gas industry, and is an important step towards safely developing deepwater energy supplies offshore," BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich said in a statement.
"This permit was issued for one simple reason: the operator successfully demonstrated that it can drill its deepwater well safely and that it is capable of containing a subsea blowout if it were to occur," he added. "We expect further deepwater permits to be approved in coming weeks and months based on the same process that led to the approval of this permit."

Noble Energy "spent two months drilling to a depth of 13,585 feet before it was forced to plug the well under the moratorium," Jennifer A. Dlouhy of the Houston Chronicle reported Monday. "The bypass drilling in 6,500 feet of water is meant to get around the plugs in the original well."

Dlouhy added that drilling was expected to start in late March and reach a target depth of 19,000 feet.

Bromwich told AFP reporters that there were currently seven permits pending, and that all applications would be judged on "a well-by-well basis."

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal told the French news agency that the awarding of the permit was a "good first step," but added that government officials "must quickly get to a level of issuing permits that represents a critical mass so thousands of oil and gas industry workers can get back to work fueling America again."

Floating Solar Panels - Solar Novus Today

Floating Solar Panels

Written by Jane Morrill
28 February 2011

Developed by a Franco-Israeli partnership, this new solar power technology introduces a new paradigm in energy production.
The project is the result of collaboration between Solaris Synergy from Israel and the EDF Group from France. Eureka provided the supporting platform that allowed to enhance the companies’ partnership. After receiving the Eureka label, the project, called “Aquasun,” also found support from the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor. “We are very pleased with the collaborative dimension of the project,” says Dr. Elyakim Kassel, coordinator of the Aquasun project and business development manager at Solaris Synergy.

Soon after the design phase was over, at the end of March 2010, the fabrication of a prototype began and the team is aiming to launch the implementation phase in September 2011. The tests will take place at Cadarache in Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur, France. The site has a privileged position on the French electric grid and is close to a local hydro-electric facility providing the water surface to be used to install the system. It will operate on-site for a period of nine months, while assessing the system’s performance and productivity through seasonal changes and various water levels. The research team members believe that by June 2012 they will have all the information they need to bring the technology to market.

The project team identified the almost untouched potential of solar installations on industrial water basins already in use for other purposes. This ensures that the new solar plants will not have a negative impact on natural landscapes.

After solving the question of space, the team took on the problem of cost. The developers were able to reduce the costs linked to the implementation of the technology in two ways:

• First, they reduced the quantity of solar cells used, thanks to optical mirrors that concentrate the sun, while keeping steady the amount of power produced.

• Second, the team implemented a creative cooling system using the water on which the solar panels are floating.

Thanks to this efficient cooling method, the PV system can use silicon solar cells, which tend to experience overheating problems and need to be cooled in order to allow the system to work correctly. The particular type of solar cell used also allows a higher efficiency than usual, achieving both reliability and cost-reduction.

Still for the purpose of making the technology efficient and ready to market, the system is designed in such way that it is possible to assemble as many identical modules on a solar platform as needed for the power rating desired. Each module produces a standard amount of 200 kilowatts (kW) of electricity, and more power can be achieved by simply adding more modules.

The team also worked on the environmental impact of the technology. The floating panels work as a breathing surface through which oxygen can penetrate to the water. This feature ensures that sufficient oxygen will maintain the underwater life of plants and animals. Dr. Kassel adds, “One of the implementation phase’s goals is to closely monitor the possible effects of this new technology on the environment with the help of specialists [and] a preliminary check shows no detrimental environmental impact on water quality, flora or fauna. Our choices of materials were always made with this [environmental] concern in mind.”

The project was featured at the 4th International Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Conference last week on 22-24 February 2011 in Eilat, Israel, giving the public the opportunity to observe how the floating concentrated PV system functioned. According to Yossi Fisher, Solaris Synergy’s chief executive officer, the installation in Eilat was a milestone.

Dr. Kassel sees a final benefit to his project: “Today, each country must consider the best resources it has … to produce clean energy. For example, hydroelectric power is good where there are waterfalls, geothermic is productive for countries with thermal springs and solar power is very efficient where there is sun. Our system could be of great use in places that are exposed to sun, but [don't] necessarily have sufficient natural water. Even dry countries, such as Israel or the North African countries, have industrial waters that are not rain-dependent. This fact makes the floating solar power plant a reliable [way] for them to produce renewable energy.”
