Energy trends to keep an eye on in 2018

Cost will continue to fall

Every year is an exciting year for energy markets, new trends emerge and old ones simply don’t make the cut.
The price of solar and wind is plummeting considerably with zero fuel cost. Solar prices have dropped by around 62% since 2009, while offshore wind costs have also halved in recent years, reaching £57 per megawatt hour in 2017.

Governments are seeing record-low prices for solar and wind at power auctions, and subsidy-free solar and wind farms are now being developed (Hawaii for example).

“The body electric”

Since winter came to DC, around the month of November, I have been getting shocks from anything I touch, the door knob, the heater, the metallic window frame, the pins of my phone charger plug; it has been dreary and annoying, and I thought that something was wrong with me, or the house has some grounding problems, until today when I learned that two fellows are having the same problem and maybe other people too I didn’t know about.
And since I know electricity, I wanted to assure fellows and people who have experienced this, that this is not a cosmic revenge or the end of world sign but a natural physical phenomenon called: static electricity.
There is one form of the human body always neglected and unspoken of, which is “the body electric”.
For centuries, in the east, the belief of energy medicine was fundamental to heal and restore balance to the body, but in the west, the ascension from considering this form of medicine as witchcraft to slowly embracing it took longer than admitting the biomedical form of the human body as the only form, known, seen, felt, accessible and scientifically valid.
Our nervous system is an electric maze of connections, nods, electrons, movement, our body uses electricity to perform our basic and most complicated biological functions. Simply those electrons you have are your elixir of life! Love your electrons!.
The earth energy has a direct influence on our health, and there is a syndrome for that called “Electron deficiency syndrome”, which simply means that if your body is deficient of electrons you are more exposed to diseases and rampant viruses than you can imagine, your body needs those electrons to combat inflammation and diseases like cancer, arthritis, and many other illnesses ranging from mild to severe.


2017 was a tough year as all years were, at the end of each year we look back to our experiences and the lessons that shaped both our perspectives and personalities.

This year I have met more people than I will my entire life, people from East and South, North and West.

As we move forward to the next year, never be afraid to gaze at your future as you shape it.

Happy New Year!

In the spirit of holidays and great new encounters


What is the best part about traveling and settling in a new country? If you ask anyone this question, hands down they will say: Meeting new people!. Amen to that!.

Being in the US is a global unique experience, you can easily find people from every corner of the world, living, studying, working, touring, eating, taking pictures, swimming… and what better opportunity than this to make friends you can couch-surf with whenever you visit their countries? :D.

Being alone in a new country is intimidating, making new friends is what makes it pleasurable and worthwhile for everyone.

Luxury or necessity? New Energy profile

This world is built on mass consumption, everything is fast-paced, everything is getting bigger, taller and larger; against all studies, researches and predictions, the new curve is alarming as demographics, economy and technology are blooming not necessarily in equal split between developing and developed countries.

Energy efficiency and sufficiency are key indicators of performance; but energy cannot be contained, it floats freely in huge sections of copper or large atmospheric emissions; the earth is a ball of energy, the sun, every atom in this universe is exuberantly dependent on energy as a form of life and motion.

Jet-lag, Mosquitoes, but…

I will start by the two weeks 5 facts:
– Humongous mosquitoes with attitude
– Beautifully mapped city (that is DC by the way) you have a bus stop every one or two blocks, don’t take the bus if you are impatient 😀
– Nice people, everyone is willing to help, I had a woman that roamed the streets with me looking for the bus stop.
– Most people speak so fast, I mean for me, a non-native speaker, I would like to digest the information first and understand. I think this is something you get used to with time.
– When you ask a question, they always compliment by saying good question, which is very encouraging especially for laid back people who don’t initiate conversations.
And also Americans love to be asked questions, at least in my host organization everyone is so happy to answer my questions and they keep checking if I have other questions or not.
– Why do you put tissue paper in the gift bag? Something I didn’t understand, but looks nice though 🙂
– Fashion ranges from business casual to very formal business attires, I would say very relaxed and chic sense of fashion.
