BRAND MESSAGING

There is a rule in communications: If you don't manage your message, someone else will. Each day people throughout your organization have conversations with a variety of people outside the organization.

DATA LOGGERS FOR GREEN BUILDING PROJECTS

Data loggers can provide valuable information for nearly every aspect and scale of green design. For example, a facilities manager can monitor temperature in a fifteen-story office building over the summer to check whether the fans in the building's cooling tower need adjustment.

MARC GOTTSCHALK - CLEAN TECH OPEN

Our core activity is a series of annual regional business plan competitions for cleantech startups looking for a jump-start in bringing their products to market.

MR. OBAMA - PLEASE MEET MR. PIGOU

Basically, Pigouvian taxes would tax the things we do not want in our society, like toxins and greenhouse gases, and NOT tax things we like in society, like employment and housing. For example, when coal power plants emit traces of mercury, we should not tax the power produced, but the harmful mercury emitted.

NATIONAL AFV DAY ODYSSEY

With a total of 90 special events held throughout the U.S. and Canada, National AFV Day Odyssey events served as a voice to deliver the message about the importance of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles to a populace feeling the crunch of higher pump prices and worrying about the impacts of traditional fuel sources on the environment.

PIERRE-PASCAL URBON - SMA

The U.S. housing crisis is the main cause of the global financial crisis. Therefore, the availability of loans for green field installations seems to be limited. However, financing for residential and commercial PV applications is still available.

SEAN BOURQUIN - CARMANAH

There are six main building blocks of a solar-LED lighting system, basically representing the main energy-conversion steps required to capture energy from the sun, store it, and convert it to nighttime lighting.

SIMPLE AND SAFE SOLAR HEATING

It is a fact that the installation and set-up of solar thermal systems is no longer the realm of rare solar enthusiasts.

SOLAR POWER CONFERENCE DRAWS 22,500; TRENDS EMERGE

As for trends, I noticed several more thin-film companies exhibiting beside the grandpa of thin-films, UniSolar. These included Opti-Solar, Applied Materials (selling turnkey thin-film fabrication units) and Ascent Solar.

SOLAR SYSTEM INSTALLATION - PITFALLS TO AVOID

New technology is the "white horse" of affordable solar. Many customers hear or assume that technology is always going to improve over time and that will in turn bring down prices. The technology that we're using today is the same that we've been using since 1960 and it is the most efficient way to capture the unlimited, free, clean energy from the sun.

THE TITANIC MOMENT

The world must now find ways to create the eternal paradigm for the infinite future of life on Earth, and I suggest that we may be able to begin the construction of an infrastructure that will still 100% sustainably serve those who live 1000 generations from now

WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS FOR A GREEN WORLD

Ultimately, battery-free operation is a key step in paving the way for truly green systems that do not adversely impact the environment. This environmentally-friendly approach can also extend the reach of sensing technology to distant and inhospitable climates and regions.

WOODY BIOMASS AS ENERGY RESOURCE

Biomass can play a major role in helping reduce reliance on fossil fuels by making use of efficient thermo-chemical conversion technologies. In addition, the increased utilization of biomass-based fuels will be instrumental in safeguarding the environment, generation of new job opportunities, sustainable development and health improvements in rural areas.

UNCOVERING ENERGY INEFFICIENCIES

Energy inefficiency is not easily noticed in facilities. Aging infrastructure, high energy and maintenance costs are all proxies for energy inefficiency in facilities. Typically if an energy audit has not been done at a facility in the last five years, and is accompanied by some of the conditions mentioned above it is a good candidate for an energy action plan.

5 PRACTICAL SOLAR APPLICATIONS

You've got some money saved and going solar crossed your mind. But you'd rather have new floors or walls, or invest in the little addition you always wanted. Why not do both?

Darfon G320 Microinverter

Darfon G320 Microinverter

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.
