The lion's share of oil consumption stems from transportation needs. In 2002, the transportation sector accounted for about 68% of total petroleum use with gasoline accounting for two-thirds of the petroleum consumed in the transportation sector.
As last year's blackout showed, whenever what we know and trust fails us, we immediately seek out the alternatives. Which meant that stocks in alternative energy companies spiked significantly in the days following the blackout.
Ultracapacitors prove to be a high-reliability solution for the severe power pulses needed for wind turbine pitch control.
"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy - sun, wind and tide. I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that." - Thomas Alva Edison (1847 - 1931)
Some of the questions we have for hybrid technology are now dependability in cold weather starting, reliability in highway driving standards, added to these ever so alluring fuel cost savings.
Solarwall is a solar, fresh air, heating and ventilation system
If you want to have a renewable energy system you need to learn to conserve well in advance of buying the system.
The concept of using biodiesel may seem a new one, but it is not. Rudolph Diesel's first engine ran on peanut oil and now, a century later, it seems we are finally learning that natural oils are better for our health , our environment and ultimately our economy than fossil alternatives.

Apart from the small electronic component the whole installation can be made locally with materials available in nearly every part of the world, being glass and PVC piping and appendages.
Inverters convert the "DC" electrical power output of renewable energy technologies - such as solar, wind and fuel cells - to the high quality "AC" that our conventional power system require.
The Baumgartner's not only enjoy modern appliances, they also have lower fuel bills and enjoy power even when their neighbors are suffering from a blackout. The only evidence that their house is running on solar power is the noise from the generator when it is running.

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.
