The Economics of Solar Power For California

The Million Solar Roofs Initiative will save customers and the state over $6 billion while at the same time providing for our long-term energy needs and improving both our economy and our environment.

The heating season is just around the corner.

Radiation is how the sun heats the earth, as there is no air between the two. Radiation is usually far more efficient than convection and the air movement is minimal.

The Hydrogen Energy System

Below is an extract from "Introduction to Hydrogen and Fuel Cells", online educational material about Hydrogen and Fuel Cell technology designed for teachers and students at ages of 13-16 years old.

The Stats on Stats

A programmable thermostat can save you money on your utility bill - up to 33%, if used as directed. You set it up to adjust the temperature when you are away from home or asleep.

The Sustainable, Architectural, Infrastructural, Global and Personal Future

World history has always seen the development of small-scale, innovative technologies to larger-scale applications. Why not pursue this same evolution with such bold new schemes as those shown here, that combine food and energy production, increased proximity to nature and access to high and low speed transportation links?

The Wind Blows For Free

Globally, a study from Stanford University has suggested that the world could harvest five times more power from the wind than we are currently using for all purposes - if we want to.

What's Happening to Gas Prices?

The truth may be that we are approaching the halfway mark in the world's oil supply, after which production will start to decline.

Alternative Energy - An Environmentally Friendly Solution for Reducing Energy Costs

Not only does the use of alternative energy promote a healthier environment, the reduction in traditional energy consumption truly adds up in savings over time, which is a selling point for builders and a real advantage to consumers.

Benefits of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies

Fossil fuels are incredibly valuable resources. How efficiently we use these resources will determine how long they last. Fuel Cells Make Fuels Last Longer.

Cosmetics Are Nice, But Our Conscience Says, "No"

Even at the risk of losing some business, we are committed to adapting alternative materials that will ultimately help preserve the environment while offering high quality, more affordable products that add beauty to the home without accelerating the loss of our natural resources.

DynaMotive's Modular BioOil Plant to be Deployed in Canada and Internationally

Through the application of fast pyrolysis, DynaMotive's technology unlocks the natural energy found in the world's abundant organic residues produced by the agricultural and forest industries.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Since 2001, Focus on Energy has worked with Stora Enso to lower its annual energy consumption by 22 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) and 3.6 million therms of natural gas, in turn lowering its annual energy costs by $3.5 million

Labor Costs Are Keeping PV Systems Expensive

The ability to get PV costs down further will depend on bigger fabs and worker productivity.

New Applications for EVs

A "low speed electric mobile advertising system," whereby utility bed GEM vehicles are outfitted with illuminated billboards.

Next Energy Opens Zero Emission Building

Next Energy expects that the building will require over 80% less energy than a conventionally built, fossil fuel-fired structure.
