Preparing America for New Jobs in Renewable Energy Horizon Fuel Cell Develops Science Education Kits
Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies is introducing new teaching tools that focus on the science of renewable energy. These hands-on science experiment kits, including small wind-turbines, solar panels and zero emission vehicle construction sets, are designed as the chemistry sets of the future.
Low-cost, automated tool helps accelerate development decisions
Business and Environmental Groups Launch Campaign for Federal Policy to Spur Greater Energy Efficiency Investment
Governments around the globe have committed to expend public funds to shore up poor decisions in investment markets - governments must ensure investments in public monies counteract global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
St. Louis-based Vertegy today announced that its general manager, Thomas Taylor, was recently appointed by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) to serve as chair of the organization's Environmental Network Steering Committee.
IBM is already staking claims in the smart grid industry to better manage electricity. Now it's doing the same for water, with a broad offering that will include developing sensor and intelligence networks for water utilities, smart water meters and a new technology for water filtration. IBM sees a role for information technology in the water world that's analogous to its role in smart grid projects according to Sharon Nunes, vice president of IBM's "Big Green Innovations" team. That includes sensor networks that can track water flow and quality, water meters that can give utilities and customers up-to-date information on water use and price, and complex "predictive" modeling to let water managers plan for the future.

Dow Corning has named Dr. Guy Beaucarne as Solar Cell Science and Technology Manager for its Solar Market Business Unit, which provides silicon-based solutions throughout the entire photovoltaic value chain. He will be based at Dow Corning's European headquarters in Belgium.
Ontario is poised to introduce new electricity pricing to encourage the development of renewable energy from a diverse range of producers including homeowners, community-based groups and larger scale commercial generators.
An in depth look at the recent spate of investment in European thin film companies. The EU recently reinforced its commitment to renewable energy with an EU-wide directive that commits the EU to 20 percent renewable energy targets by 2020. Specifically from the solar industry perspective, a lot would depend upon Germany's continued support. Last month, the European Commission backed nearly €100 million euros ($129 million) in aid to two solar power projects in Germany.
According to a new report entitled "The CPV Challenge (Part I): Achieving Grid Parity", written by the University of Jaen (Spain) and CPV today, CPV could reach grid parity between 2011 and 2015. Efficiency increases will be instrumental in bringing about significant cost reductions
The Thin Film Solar Summit Europe, organized by Thin Film Today, will take place in Berlin, Germany, from May 19 - 20, 2009. The summit will provide a forum for addressing the most critical business challenges currently facing the Thin Film Industry in Europe

Solar & Wind - Featured Product
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.
