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.
The H2 Truck is a small vehicle used in many different operation fields including luggage hauling, small commercial vehicles, hospitals and ports.
We use about 128,640 horsepower-hours, or the equivalent of 147 energy slaves working for each of us 24/7, all year long.
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.
If you buy a set of 5 lights for 20 bucks do not expect it to last very long or hold up in extreme conditions. Research what you are going to buy, ask others and make an informed decision.
The main purpose for developing the Thermo Life is to provide energy harvesting for low-power applications where other technologies would prove inadequate or not possible.

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
