ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the use of micropower technologies such as wind farms, for electricity generation. According to projections by the International Energy Agency, 2005 was the first year nuclear power's electricity output dropped behind that of small-scale plants producing low or no carbon dioxide emissions. Though small, such projects are already flourishing. Much of the world's small-scale generation involves combined heat and power co-generation projects, whose carbon dioxide emissions are 30 to 80% less than that of large-scale gas-fired plants. The worldwide uptake of this technology is being accompanied by fast growth in the use of renewables such as solar and wind.
