The Silicon Man

With no fuel-costs, or toxicity, solar PV technology, largely based on our friend "Silicon" offers a truly sustainable means of powering industrial loads. This marks the threshold for our transition from the "Hydro-carbon Man, to the beginning of the "Silicon Man".

The World's Energy Portfolio Needs Rebalancing

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them". Albert Einstein

Towards a Workable Post-Kyoto, International Framework for Emissions Reduction

In this paper we outline a possible alternative architecture for a successor regime, based on a single flexible emission reduction target for all countries and the principle of a treaty accession process, such as that which has resulted in other successful multilateral organisations.

31 Years After the First Energy Crisis, The Need for an Energy Strategy

A secure, clean, safe, healthy and economically efficient energy supply is no longer a technology development challenge, but largely a matter of investment in infrastructure and deployment of modern solutions on a massive scale.

Alkaline Fuel Cell for Backup Power

Fuel cells are only starting to enter the marketplace and due to the many operational and cost benefits they offer they should start to be accepted on an accelerated basis.

Building Cars For Our Eternal Children's Genes, Using The Energy That We Still Have To Make The Worl

This project's car body is made from plastic composites that can be produced from plants and is more easily bio-degradable, and is therefore potentially very lightweight!

Economic Development Through Biomass Waste-To-Energy Technology

The technology is so profitable that electricity and natural gas (methane) will be sold to citizens and businesses at a 20% discount from existing retail while permitting cities and counties to disconnect from the electricity grid thereby becoming energy independent on a fully sustainable basis.

Fall Water Gardens - Preparation and Reflection

Autumn is the time to break new ground on ideas you have had that you would like to see implemented before spring.

Green Building Education, In a Green Classroom at Santa Clara University

Santa Clara University's vision was to build a green technologies test center that can evolve with new technologies and be a place of discovery, learning, systems testing, and student community.

Hydrogen Hybrid Vehicle Powered With

The hybrid vehicle modified by ECD Ovonics has a driving range of nearly 200 miles and requires about 8 minutes for refueling using a filling pressure of 1500 psi. A practical first step on the road to a hydrogen-fueled future

Hydrogen Powered Micro Trigeneration Technology

The use of trigeneration systems reduces the consumption of fossil fuels, per unit of energy required for a typical building, by about 40% compared to that used by conventional air-conditioning systems.

Last Chance for Gas

Oil is running out, maybe sooner than later. Can alternatives supply a solution? There are bright spots on the horizon.

TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR PERSONAL ENERGY USE

To begin to make changes, it is important to know how much energy you are currently using. If you don't save your gas and electricity bills, it is a good idea to start doing so now.

The Energy Crisis Gets Personal

GridPoint's intelligent energy management appliance manages both traditional and renewable energy to reduce costs - and also provides clean, silent and automatic backup power.

Using our Buildings to provide Education for Sustainability

Making the message compelling and appealing to a variety of audiences simultaneously is certainly quite a challenge. Today we are all so bombarded with flashing information, how can we get the sustainability message across?

Solar & Wind - Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
