Globally, a study from Stanford University has suggested that the world could harvest five times more power from the wind than we are currently using for all purposes - if we want to.
The truth may be that we are approaching the halfway mark in the world's oil supply, after which production will start to decline.
Not only does the use of alternative energy promote a healthier environment, the reduction in traditional energy consumption truly adds up in savings over time, which is a selling point for builders and a real advantage to consumers.
Fossil fuels are incredibly valuable resources. How efficiently we use these resources will determine how long they last. Fuel Cells Make Fuels Last Longer.
Even at the risk of losing some business, we are committed to adapting alternative materials that will ultimately help preserve the environment while offering high quality, more affordable products that add beauty to the home without accelerating the loss of our natural resources.
Through the application of fast pyrolysis, DynaMotive's technology unlocks the natural energy found in the world's abundant organic residues produced by the agricultural and forest industries.
Since 2001, Focus on Energy has worked with Stora Enso to lower its annual energy consumption by 22 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) and 3.6 million therms of natural gas, in turn lowering its annual energy costs by $3.5 million
The ability to get PV costs down further will depend on bigger fabs and worker productivity.
A "low speed electric mobile advertising system," whereby utility bed GEM vehicles are outfitted with illuminated billboards.
Next Energy expects that the building will require over 80% less energy than a conventionally built, fossil fuel-fired structure.
We believe that European governments need to address two problems in order to get Europe's offshore wind plans back on track: the cumbersome permitting process, and the cost of grid connections.
Guidelines and standards provide a level playing field for all parties. Retailers, purchasing agencies and consumers must be able to evaluate the merits of solar devices based on a common set of industry-approved standards if we hope to achieve broad market penetration.
At the driest time of year, our creek measures about 3 feet wide by 3-4 inches deep and a five-gallon bucket and stopwatch suggested we had over 300 gpm flowing past our intake site. Wow, lots of potential.
I was surprised to see that, in Germany, where they receive a fewer amount of energy with respect to other countries, by the end of 2003 had clearly invested more in solar panels than many other countries which get more solar energy than them.
The first in a series that explores the future of sustainable energy across British Columbia

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
