Fossil fuels are a finite resource. It takes tens to hundreds of millions of years for organic matter (typically from biomass) to morph naturally into the energy-dense states that we know today as hydrocarbons: oil, gas and coal. At the rate at which we are extracting it from the ground, we will have depleted the reserve within...? Well, that’s exactly what is up for debate today…

Photovoltaics solar energy has been on a mind-blowing cost-reduction trend in the last decades. The cost of solar photovoltaics (PV) modules, for instance, has been divided by 10 in 10 years, and the lowest electricity prices have just been broken again by a solar PV plant: 1.35 USD/kWh. This price is a bid for the Al Dhafra PV park in Abu Dhabi and is 25 times cheaper than the price a German household pays for electricity!
Part of Eedama’s mission is to spread awareness, this is why we have taken the opportunity of this slow period to provide free live sessions on social media: They help reflect on negative environmental impact and improve it, and they allow spending educational and fun moments. Eedama has started holding weekly live workshops, and through these workshops, teaching more about sustainability. We cover various topics including upcycling, composting, gardening, upcycling DIY activities and much more.
