OIL AND COAL IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The new century oil and coal companies will "Grow" their carbon fuels in bioreactors using safe and cost-effective biotechnology.

TELL THEM WHAT YOU GOT - STRAIGHT

Categorizing products as environmentally-friendly by sticking a symbol-type label on its packaging, insults consumers' intelligence.

THE MECHANICAL MATHEMATICIAN

So now you have a very simple device to guide people in making good parabolic basins for making solar ovens! I believe this type of simple device will help a lot of people to improve their lives.

A Federal Energy Policy: Can It Happen Here?

It would take nothing short of a sea change to overcome Congressional inertia and recover the ground lost in the last 25 years or so. But though the prospects for a truly coherent national energy policy are improving -- and the need has never been greater -- both the citizenry and the current Congress are far too complacent to entertain changes that might involve belt-tightening and discipline.

Creating New Application Solutions for Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

Why not combine a flexible thin film photovoltaic module with a high performance coating, in effect creating a monolithic membrane system consisting of the coating and the photovoltaic both waterproofing the roof and generating renewable energy.

Editorial Comments

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.

Fire The Oil Industry as the Monopoly Vendor

Replace oil? How can something so monumental be accomplished? Preempt waste, start small, provide better service at lower cost and think better.

Fuel Cells Breathe Easy in Great Outdoors

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.

Green Belgian Chocolate? Yum.

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.

Green Travel

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.

Mobile Solar Power

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.

Parking in a Solar Grove

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.

Investing in PV Solar Energy

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.

A Bad Boy with a Good Side

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 ETHANOL MARKET

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%.
