The World Needs Gigawatts not Megawatts

If the Photovoltaics industry is going to play a significant role in worldwide electricity production in the future it all comes down to one word - scalability, the ability of a technology to expand its production capacity to very large sizes, thereby enabling significant cost decreases.

Transportation for a Clean Planet

Since successful testing in 2003, ISE has incorporated ultracapacitors into its gasoline, diesel and fuel-cell hybrid electric vehicles with extraordinary results.

Ultracapacitors Double Life of Wave Measurement Buoys

By working together with a primary battery, the ultracapacitors have helped to at least double the lifetime, which means that battery life no longer determines the service interval for the buoy.

What's ahead for neighborhood electric vehicles?

The cost of ownership is one-third and the fuel efficiency is eight times greater when compared to their gasoline-powered counterparts.

Benefits of 24/7 Battery Equalization

The equalizer captures energy from batteries with "above average voltage" and dumps that energy into the ones with "below average voltage". When the overachievers try to excel in voltage, their excess energy is used to bring the underachievers up to par.

Can Electricity Save Energy

With the increasing conversion efficiency of electricity in generation, the increasing share of renewable electricity, the high efficiency at the point of use and the potential for system level efficiencies, there is a lot of supporting evidence for a claim that electricity can save energy.

China's Attempt to Balance the Environment and a Rapidly Growing Economy

China may be positioning to change its global image from environmental disasters to an environmental leader, as it was recently recognized as the world leading investor in renewable energy.

Editorial Comments

A terrific issue with a great variety of articles about Alternative Solutions for Energy and perhaps the coolest Earth Toy yet. I want a Tesla Roadster for Christmas.

Greening Affordable Housing

The green building techniques used by HEB are not radical, and should be accessible to any builder.

H2 Truck Demonstrates Practical Use of Hydrogen Powered Fuel Cell Vehicles

The H2 Truck is a small vehicle used in many different operation fields including luggage hauling, small commercial vehicles, hospitals and ports.

How Many Energy Slaves Do We Employ?

We use about 128,640 horsepower-hours, or the equivalent of 147 energy slaves working for each of us 24/7, all year long.

Is America ready for Wind Hydrogen?

While flow batteries and other devices can be used to compensate for wind's intermittent output, it's difficult to match the investor and political enthusiasm for hydrogen.
