The CDG is a world leader in international project development that is sustainable, pragmatic and tangible. The world needs results. The CDG exists to make them happen. Everything from the design to the negotiation with all developing stakeholders and funding bodies, right through to the manufacturing and final construction and training for sustainable technology transfer, is all done by the CDG. Our purpose is to be comprehensive and create a sustainable global infrastructure of community facilities, devices and practices that enable people from all walks of life and all parts of the world to be a healthy part of the world around them. The facilities are solar, wind or micro-hydro powered to provide a superior source of modern day clean power. In addition, in much of the world traditional energy sources are not only polluting, they are unreliable, dangerous, or do not even exist; meaning they are too costly on numerous levels to build out to some locations or cannot be built. Furthermore, in many developing nations traditional energy costs are often 6 times more expensive than they are in developed states.

In the case of coal, it is a finite resource that is highly polluting resulting in a multitude of environmental contamination: which include fly ash, nitrogen and sulfur oxides (NOx and SOx), mercury and solid wastes causing acid rain; and large scale greenhouse gas buildup and the poisoning of people, animals, water, soils, crops and vegetation. An average 1000 megawatt power plant produces approximately 7 million tons of CO2, 75,000 tons of nitrogen oxide, and 100,000 tons of sulfur dioxides. Coal can also be radioactive, with an average plant producing more radioactivity than a typically sized nuclear plant. It also wastes energy through its required transportation to the coal fired power plants where it is ultimately burned. In addition, it is dangerous to mine and results in the injuries and deaths of large numbers of people worldwide every year through cave-ins, explosions and methane gas poisoning.

In the case of oil, it too is a finite resource, it is expensive and polluting. When oil spills occur, which do so at rates far higher than receive media attention (i.e. http://oils.gpa.unep.org/facts/oilspills.htm); millions of birds, animals, insects, flora, fish and other aquatic life are killed a miserable death. Moreover, countries orchestrate wars to gain control of oil reserves, which results in tremendous environmental destruction, and the deaths of great numbers of flora, fauna and people.

Nuclear is deemed by some as a renewable energy source. The realities of nuclear are that with conventional thermal energy production it accounts for 60% of a western nations’ water usage; placing it above industrial production, which accounts for an average of 20% of a western nations’ water usage. With global water shortages, mass desertification growth and potable water access at the heart of health, political and physical conflicts, nuclear is too irresponsible and unsustainable an option. In addition, the need to dispose of the volatile radioactive uranium, when it has been depleted of its energy producing properties (namely the isotope U235), is a danger that unfortunately does not offer logical options either.

As more and more nations have begun advanced long range arms buildups, nuclear reactors are target sites for missile attacks as they were during the cold war. Such military strikes dramatically increase the short and long term damage to the attacked site (i.e. fallout from nuclear bombings of Hiroshima, Nagasaki) and surrounding regions. If a nuclear reactor breaks down resulting in the exposure of people, animals, plants and soils to radioactive contamination (i.e. Chernobyl, Kashiwazaki-Kariwa, Fukushima) this also has remarkably far reaching deadly short and long-term consequences.

* The more reliable, cost-effective, safest and logical option of solar power, for example, harnesses free energy, with no pollution, no moving parts to break down or produce noise and maintenance costs and issues, and can be built virtually everywhere and anywhere (hot and cold climates); providing independence and dramatically healthier living. In less than 1 hour enough energy from the sun shines on the earth’s surface to power the entire world’s total energy consumption for an entire year.

Sustainable Development is the effort to advance and improve life for all – not development at the expense of something else, or to digress or stagnate. This is why the CDG specializes exclusively in renewable energy and fosters information access infrastructures to developing and developed communities. This is to empower people with the fundamental tools for independence, sustainable growth and improved access to the communities, nations and information of the world. In doing so we directly and universally help enable all to tangibly contribute their unique attributes, cultures and customs in a way that both provides healthy integration and a means to preserve who they are and where they come from.
