Drivers can now find alternative fueling stations using cell phones & PDAs. Consumers on-the-go can now access the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Alternative Fueling Station Locator using their cell phone, BlackBerry, or other personal digital assistant (PDA). The Mobile Alternative Fueling Station Locator allows drivers to find the five closest biodiesel, electricity, E85 (ethanol), hydrogen, natural gas, and propane fueling sites. This convenient tool uses well-known, easy-to-navigate Google Maps to automatically generate maps to fueling sites and lists each station's contact information and business hours. Detailed driving directions and an instant phone connection to the station can all be accessed at www.afdc.energy.gov/stations/m/ .
IntertechPira, a leading conference and research organization is pleased to announce Dr Jean Posbic, Director of Projects of BP Solar and Dr Tom Surek, PV Consultant and former PV Program Manager of NREL as Co-Chairs for the two-day conference and exhibition.
The U.S. is now the world's top Wind Power Producer and closing in fast on Solar. The U.S. increased its wind capacity by 50 percent last year to a total of 25 GW, enough to power nearly 5 million homes. Germany took a close second with 24 GW of installed wind, while Spain took the third spot. Globally wind power grew by 29 percent, to reach 121 GW total capacity. As one of the most affordable sources of alternative energy -- being only slightly more expensive than coal and nuclear -- wind accounted for 42 percent of the new energy installations in the U.S.
One-acre, 1,500 solar panel array at Pioneer Hi-Bred Waimea Research Center in Kauai, Hawaii is DuPonts largest solar installation to date
Xantrex Technology Inc., a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, announces the launch of the Xantrex GT500E and the Xantrex GT250E Three Phase Grid Tie Solar Inverters for the Italian market.
This invention is about stirling engine, which is an internal combustion engined heat machine known as hot air engine and converting the heat to mechanical motion.
From Gray Water Recycling Systems. We build gray and rainwater recycling units for residences, resorts, hotel and commercial use. Units capture water from shower, bath, laundry and downspout, then purify, disinfect and store that water to be reused for irrigation and other recycled water uses.
St. Louis-based Vertegy today announced it has expanded its staff to keep pace with the growing demand for green and sustainable consulting services. The company, which also helps clients attain LEED certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, has added Greg Mueller as project specialist.
Electronic Control Concepts is proud to introduce the first product in its new line of alternative energy solutions. The Solar Controller, Model 510, features ECC's own "intelligent charge" regulator designed to maximize efficiency and minimize the cost of implementing many solar solutions.
Bay Area School does its part to promote renewable energy and serves as a model for CA schools
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) would like to commend Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm for the clean energy proposal she announced yesterday at her State-of-the-State address in Lansing (see http://www.michigan.gov/documents/gov/SOS2009_265915_7.pdf).
Akeena Solar Inc. and Enphase Energy have announced a strategic partnership to develop and market Andalay solar panel systems with ordinary AC house current output instead of the high voltage DC output that is produced from most solar panels. Andalay AC panels are expected to cost less to install and provide higher performance than ordinary DC panels. Akeena estimates that up to 25 percent of the total costs necessary to design and install a solar power system can be eliminated with solar panels that have integrated racking, wiring and grounding, and that operate with standard AC wiring.
Act Solar's new product, Powerstring' for solar PV systems cumulatively delivers an additional 40-80% total power over 25-40 years of operations
EnerWorks has secured $5.1 million in new investment through a private placement which closed January 15, 2009.

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.
