Just back from a whirlwind day at Solar 2007 in Long Beach and I gotta say ... this industry is on fire ... finally. On the show floor you literally had to elbow your way down the aisles.
Replace oil? How can something so monumental be accomplished? Preempt waste, start small, provide better service at lower cost and think better.
Using fuel cells in recreational applications means no more smoky emissions and loud operating noises from standard generators, as well as longer lasting power and easier refueling than today's batteries. That should make everyone breathe a little easier.
What strikes me most as a leap forward in terms of innovative, even disruptive, business concepts, is the installing of a waste-to-energy plant at the site of a power-customer itself.
The awareness of travel consumers is rising that our environment is worth considering. If the travel industry does not answer the call, voices will arise to discourage people to go to such idyllic places as the Caribbean.
Take electricity from the sun, run it through a charge controller and into a large battery bank. Have an inverter pull that power out of the batteries (when needed) and make it available as pure sinewave current. The trick: do all this inside of an enclosed trailer.
The Kyocera Solar Grove' consists of 25 Solar Trees' with 1,400 Kyocera KC187GS solar photovoltaic (PV) modules interspersed with 200 translucent KC88CGS modules offering improved daylighting and aesthetic appeal from both above and below the structures.
I see great potential in the nano technology area. It is my feeling that if there is a huge blockbuster technology that is going to emerge and "take over" the PV industry, I feel that it will somehow involve breakthroughs and application of nano technology to the area of photovoltaics.
It wasn't long before they expanded uses for their favorite new toy, attaching farm equipment to the buggy's hitch (also standard) and using it to mow, till and plant fields. They used its auxiliary power point to run power tools in the woods.
Brazil seeks to produce enough ethanol to replace 10% of the gasoline consumed worldwide by 2012, which requires doubling its current production and increasing the share of exports in total output to 20% from the current 15%.
The collector being enclosed or open faced would require surface care and significant weekly cleaning. Sopogy's panels would park at night, meaning the collector surfaces are protected so as not to be exposed.
What is in this issue and what does it mean.
E-machines have no more maintenance than a bicycle. They are simple, efficient, safe and fun to ride
Should we choose to have 20% of our power production ideologically clean, or 80% of our electricity needs atmospherically clean? The answer is: we should do both.
If successful, the SS2 and the WK2 could pave the way for a much larger craft that could ferry several hundred passengers into low orbital space and the land in another country or continent without the need for expensive jet fuel.

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
