Over the past 10 years, Sheila Davis has played a valuable role at SVTC and in shaping environmental policy in the high-tech industry. She is one of the co-founders of the Computer TakeBack Campaign and sits on its steering committee. In 1996 she researched and developed the first electronic recycling legislation to reach the California Governor's desk and in 1999 spearheaded the first pilot programs in the country to collect and recycle electronic waste from the residential curbside.
With more than 40 sessions covering everything from producers to users of hydrogen, the conference featured its most relevant content to date, presented by some of the biggest names inside and outside the industry.
On average, it could be assumed that 15% of the world total consumption of diesel, gasoline and jet fuels can be replaced by lignin.
This month, the Obama Administration proposed cutting more than $130 million for hydrogen and fuel cells, and a total elimination of funds for the fuel cell vehicle program. This unfortunate position is short-sighted, and could prove disastrous. Abandoning these programs now will drive technology and innovation overseas and obstruct private investment. It will also waste state and federal dollars, stifle a burgeoning industry and limit options to fight climate change.
Only about 12 to 20 percent of the energy produced by the engine actually turns the wheels, and about one-third of that is consumed by rolling resistance. As you drive down the road, your tires squirm and deform every time you go around a corner, accelerate, or apply the brakes. The repeated tire deformation between the tire and the road, within the tire and between the tire and the rim, causes mechanical energy to be converted to heat; hence additional mechanical energy must be supplied to drive the axle.
How ultra low power wireless networks and energy harvesting are going to make our planet a better place to live.
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) today released its annual assessment of leading utility green power programs. Under these voluntary programs, consumers can choose to help support additional electricity production from renewable resources such as wind and solar.
The Obama administration has made alternative fuel research a key objective for the country. Researchers in the area of hydrogen fuel cell research therefore are faced with a plethora of peer reviewed publications that they must read to stay abreast of not only the latest publications but also historical publications that may be relevant to a current discovery.
Dow, NASDAQ Rise; Solar Stocks Soar
Have you ever bought a lottery ticket? Everybody loves a good contest. Let's have a national contest to devise a solution for our energy problem. If this plan is launched there will be innumerable business plans being word processed before the next dawn. Can you imagine having the patent on the replacement for oil? How valuable would that be, tax free? As a spin off value of this contest, can you imagine having the patent to create a new source of water, and be able to sell it to the drought stricken Mid East and Africa, and have the profits being tax free for ten years? How valuable would that be? How many people / companies would be lining up to participate?
While the wave energy industry is still in its infancy phase of development, America and the rest of the world are realizing the catastrophic effects of the oil industry's grip upon the global economy. We look at hydrogen and solar energy as viable alternatives to oil. In addition, tidal wave energy is a phenomenon that should be seriously considered as a viable form of energy for people to power their homes, cars, and boats.
The mid-west of Western Australia has a wealth of renewable energy resources and the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) electricity network must be improved to ensure the State can make use of the renewable energy according to Australia's largest state-based green business body.
Houston Inks $9.6 M Deal to Improve Energy Efficiency in Partnership with Clinton Climate Initiative
The city of Houston has awarded TAC by Schneider Electric a $9.6 million performance contract involving seven of the city's 271 buildings. Houston is the first major U.S. city to announce a comprehensive building retrofit project under the Clinton Climate Initiative's Building Retrofit Program.
A social housing development in Surrey, British Columbia is getting a green energy upgrade with the addition of a grid-tie solar power system from Carmanah Technologies Corporation (CMH:TSX).

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
