The livestock industry is a vitally important contributor to the economy of any country, regardless of the degree of industrialization. Animal manure is a valuable source of renewable energy; additionally, it has soil enhancement properties.
Plug-in cars appear to be a natural companion to wind power. Presumably car owners would plug their vehicles in at night to recharge. Evening is typically a windy time, so turbines would whir, pushing power into the grid to feed the cars.
PARKING LOTS IN THE AGE OF SUSTAINABILITY CREATING A LANDSCAPE OF CLEAN ENERGY, BEAUTY, AND ELECTRIC
By activating vehicle parking areas with pleasing shade structures, communities will achieve massive deployment of highly visible renewable energy projects that create clean energythrough sustainable design.
With typical tankless heaters you end up with a tub full of tepid water. If you try to fill it more slowly to get it hotter, it takes so long to fill that it cools off before you get in anyway. So if you like to soak away in a hot tub, you better make sure you get a big enough heater to handle the job.
Over here in the United States, UTC Power has racked up several significant high profile fuel cell installations with more coming down the pipeline.
The oil and gas industry were provided a $17 billion tax credit from 2007-2011 in the latest energy bill passed last December. That's $3.4 billion in tax credits for each of five years.
ZigBee Smart Energy is a standard, easy and affordable way for communicating energy-related information, such as price, over ZigBee wireless home area networks. It is a global, open standard that facilitates the creation of interoperable energy-related devices from multiple vendors to monitor, control and automate the use of energy.
Ford, Bell, Edison and the Wright Brothers would not be allowed to create their innovations today. Their businesses started too small; their ideas were "unproven." Issues with permits, insurance, rights of way would have killed their ingenuity. In a free market, ingenuity has a small chance of churning into commercial success. In a planned economy ingenuity is doomed.
At present there are globally 439 nuclear power reactors in 31 countries with an installed electricity net capacity of about 372 GW in operation, generating approximately 16 per cent of the world's electricity.
What: No "Old Faithful" in your back yard?
Working in conjunction with a well-insulated attic, environmentally friendly roofing can go a long way to keep the home's heating and cooling system functioning optimally. If it's about that time to renovate your roof, you've got a big and important project on your hands. That said, here are some things to look out for when planning for a green roof.
It is much easier to stress the unreliability of RE if you ignore the fact that wind and sun were never meant for baseload energy production, and that hydro, biomass, geothermal, etc. are continuous, storable and in fact easier to turn up/off than nuclear.
It's clear that all large-scale lighting applications, from businesses to schools, stand to benefit from LEDs. Whether it's T8 fluorescent replacement, halogen replacement, or large-scale incandescent floodlight replacement, the benefits make the upgrade a no-brainer
Spinwave Systems develops and markets wireless EMS. This includes wireless sensors for temperature, relative humidity and motion (occupancy), wireless utility meter interfaces for electric, gas and water meters and wireless switches to control equipment and lighting loads.
Independent studies carried out in the UK have predicted that conservatively about 7% of the UK's present electricity usage could be produced from tidal stream energy sources. Evopod has been developed to extract energy from the deeper water sites where the water depth is greater than 35m to 40m.

The Darfon G320 is the microinverter solution for today's high-power solar modules. The G320 handles 60- and 72-cell modules up to 350W DC and outputs up to 300W AC. The G320's 3-phase configuration accommodates the electrical distribution systems of most commercial buildings and to reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive transformers. The G320 comes in four voltage/phase configurations, so it can be installed in residential, commercial or utility applications.
