Abstract: Energy is the silver cord that delivers the needed nutrients to enrich the nerve of economy, social equity and environment. Worldwide, the growth of energy use is mainly driven by the expansion of population. Especially in the developing countries, a challenge is not simply to secure enough energy to meet demand, but also to minimize environmental impacts. In essence, renewable energy sources have become a topic of interest within the research community. Every energy source has an impact on the environment; either positive or negative. While, debates over the advantages and disadvantages of various energy sources continues, it is agreed that renewable energy offers significant environmental benefits when compared to conventional ones. A case study of an egg carton manufacturing factory located in the Gaza Strip is presented in this paper. To establish a sustainable energy plan, this study documents a reduction in electric energy demand of such factory through optimization, as well as energy production by addressing a result of a pilot study; where an Anaerobic Digester was utilized to evaluate the energy potential associated with a composition of wastewater and solid waste. Finally, results reliability was confirmed by conducting a comparison between experimental and calculated outcomes.
Description: Energy is the lifeblood that flows deeply through the veins of many sectors. It is a precondition to fulfilling the development goals, predominately those related to improving public health, exterminating poverty, driving food production and promoting economic growth. Consequently, access to affordable and reliable energy services is fundamental to achieving such goals.
