Before you decide to hop onto the green building bandwagon, look towards the final destination. Sustainable, integrated, whole-building design is where to head.
Virtually, every aspect of our lives in this digitized world needs energy. Alternative energy solutions are now available and more are on their way.
The best solutions come from within the community, working on the ground with dedicated entrepreneurs and local groups, who best understand the needs of their community.
Do something Sustainable (and thus Patriotic) every day. Take a simple walk instead of taking "a ride," invest in renewable by installing solar or wind, or buying green from your utility, use a compact fluorescent bulb, buy local vegetables, switch to a bio-fuel, trade in that gas hog for something clean and efficient.
Thinking on the scale of a watershed is useful for environmental work as we can scale things down for planning purposes, and therefore have a greater impact on the environment.
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.
Since successful testing in 2003, ISE has incorporated ultracapacitors into its gasoline, diesel and fuel-cell hybrid electric vehicles with extraordinary results.
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.
The cost of ownership is one-third and the fuel efficiency is eight times greater when compared to their gasoline-powered counterparts.
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.
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 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.
FFVs can be fueled with 100 percent gasoline up to 85 percent ethanol. Fueling between the two products is driver transparent; no switches need to be flipped or buttons turned.
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.
The green building techniques used by HEB are not radical, and should be accessible to any builder.
