Rainwater Collection - The Capture System

Rainwater systems need not be complicated. They have been built and used for thousands of years.

Re-tooling Transportation

Powered by cheap oil, the circulatory system of our economy has globalized, expanding populations, wealth, specialization beyond all historical measure. Yet the founding assumption of our success has failed and we are coasting on the momentum of cheap oil. Increasing supply of cheap oil peaked in May 2005. Since that peak gas prices and home foreclosures have skyrocketed as more and more people cannot afford their commute, food and house payments. The evaporation of Bear Stearns indicates the accelerating rate of consequences.

Saving Energy With High Efficiency Motors

After only three to six weeks of continuous operation, the power costs associated with low-rated electric motors and drives can already have equalled their purchase price.

Spitting In The Wind

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is creating a small wind turbine testing facility, and with the help from industry experts, is creating a testing standard for manufacturers so we can finally compare apples to apples.

Tim Kubista of ELEMENTS

It is in defining the brand and communicating it effectively that a company is able to distinguish itself in a very noisy and competitive marketplace.

HOME CONNECTIVITY AND GREEN ENERGY

Renewable energy will be a significant component of our future energy picture -- distributed generation from PVs to wind turbines and storage systems for electricity and cooling. These systems will increasingly be installed in our homes, together with smart electricity meters.

CLEAN ENERGY INVESTMENT BREAKS $100BN

GREEN EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

Leading by example, renewable energy firms are developing "green" or environmentally friendly employee benefits which align the core values of a CEO and culture of their organization with the core values of each employee.

HPCC A GREEN ENERGY ENABLER

HPCC's energy efficient applications, such as networking thermostats in homes and demand control, remote management of high power appliances, etc. ensure a more environmentally friendly future.

LOUISE GRAY OF TIDAL TODAY

I think the most important fact to keep in mind is that tidal energy is more predictable than wind and look at how that is regarded. Tidal energy can also be used in desalination, hence providing clean energy and a clean water resource for developing nations.

PAVING THE WAY FOR CARS OF THE FUTURE

With a sudden burst of momentum, where do we take the next step in 2008? Production and delivery will be key. Many future car enthusiasts were promised new technologies only to be burned with failures of delivery in the manufacturing facilities. Cost efficient fuel is a must. Build a better battery and they will come.
