Durable Electricity Power W. S. H. (Wind, Solar, and Hydro)
Ahmed Mohamed Ahmed Hassan
Abstract: The tendency towards alternative types of energies is becoming popular since the 2000s because their advantages are more than their drawbacks. They produce fewer greenhouse gases, with renewable sources, and decrease unemployment rates. Although their problem is with their total cost, it is in the way of being solved by the simultaneous advancements. This research paper focus on three alternative sources of energy that could be at least one of them be used globally, specifically in Egypt, which are wind power, solar power, and hydropower. The main aim of this paper is to use cotemporary techniques used in some places worldwide and manipulate their characteristics to be applied in and optimized for Egypt. The project is on a large scale because the research started on various types of alternative energies, like tidal power, Biomass, wind, geothermal, biofuels, solar, hydropower, wave energy, and nuclear power, and concluded to these three main types, because of three main restrictions, which are the accessibility, the number of searches done on that field, and the abundance of this resource. Thus, Wind power, Solar power, and Hydropower were chosen to be the main durable electricity power "W. S. H." The team found, by applying calculations and constructing specific devices for each type of these W. S. H source, that Egypt could have sufficient electricity from just those three fields. for example, Egypt could produce about one and a half the electricity generated by the USA from just half the total areas without the national restricted areas. Through solar power, Egypt could produce as much as the electricity in the USA (Egypt is about 1/10 of America?s area). Besides, the Qattara Depression has the potential to produce enough electricity for industry.
