There is now an alternative pumping technology being developed that is simple and costs little to manufacture, yet it is highly effective and can operate using low-grade heat energy - such as waste heat or solar energy. This type of heat pump has been termed the Non-Inertive Feedback Thermofluidic Engine (NIFTE) . Given their mechanical simplicity, low energy consumption and potentially low purchase cost, NIFTE pumps could be applicable for a wide variety of tasks. These range from irrigation and pond pumps to central heating circulating pumps and power showers.
The Jasper Independent School District in Jasper, Texas , is implementing more than $1.4 million in facility enhancements to improve operations and efficiency at district buildings. TAC is completing the work as a performance contract and guarantees that the district will save $124,000 annually.

President Obama Begins 'New Era' of Energy, Environmental Policy Built on Foundation of Energy Efficiency
President Obama signed memoranda at a White House ceremony today directing the Transportation Department to establish higher fuel economy standards for vehicles by model year 2011 and directing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider the bid by California and 13 other states to set tailpipe carbon dioxide emission standards that also would require greater fuel economy.
A team of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Delaware and Yeshiva University, has developed a new catalyst that could make ethanol-powered fuel cells feasible . Made of platinum and rhodium atoms on carbon-supported tin dioxide nanoparticles, the research team's electrocatalyst is capable of breaking carbon bonds at room temperature and efficiently oxidizing ethanol into carbon dioxide as the main reaction product.
Letter outlined recommendations for administrative actions that the new White House can take immediately to address climate change.
More space has been reserved at All-Energy '09, the UK's largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, than at the same time last year, and the show has additional conference sessions. Being held in Aberdeen, Scotland, 20-21 May 2009, All-Energy '09 is also a 'Homecoming Scotland' event.
Using crops in a unique barter system, a new microfinance project in the Solomon Islands has successfully implemented a solar lighting finance scheme, enabling communities to trade crops for much needed access to light.
EcoGreenHotel has rolled out the "Sustainability Support Program," a green solution for a troublesome 2009.
An award-winning scheme which will reduce the carbon footprint of the whisky industry on Speyside has moved a step closer after being granted planning permission by Moray Council. The CHP unit will use a combination of distillery co-products and wood chip from sustainable sources to generate 7.2 megawatts of electricity, enough for 9,000 homes, which can be used onsite or exported to the National Grid.
Australian Federal Opposition leader, Malcolm Turnbull's call for "jobs, jobs, jobs" ahead of propping up the property market makes sense - but must be directed to grow Australia's economy more sustainably, according to Western Australia's largest peak body for enterprises supporting sustainability.

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.
