Zero Energy Homes - By The Numbers

The results are clear. It is almost $70,000 "better" financially to build a $450,000 ZEH than to build a $400,000 conventionally built home over a five-year period or over any period of time for that matter.

Enormous Growth of Chinese PV Industry

The overall goal of the Chinese government is to have 450 MW of cumulative PV power installed in China by 2010. This is in comparison to the estimated 75 MW which was current in 2005.

EPA Regulations Raise the Bar for Industrial Air Quality Testing

In 2005, regulations introduced by the Clean Air Act of 1990 came into full effect with the goal of reducing harmful emissions by 57-billion pounds per year.

Grid Friendly™ Appliances

What can home appliances do to help ensure the reliability of the electricity grid? A lotif they employ smart control technology.

The Path to US Energy Independence

Our proposal is to build a completely new US power system, based 100 % on renewable energy sources. These sources are to be solar photovoltaic and wind energy, plus solar thermal energy, with carbon neutral biomass fuels available in reserve, in highly efficient heat engines used to level loads and for backup.

The Silicon Man

With no fuel-costs, or toxicity, solar PV technology, largely based on our friend "Silicon" offers a truly sustainable means of powering industrial loads. This marks the threshold for our transition from the "Hydro-carbon Man, to the beginning of the "Silicon Man".

The World's Energy Portfolio Needs Rebalancing

"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them". Albert Einstein

The Economics of Solar Power For California

The Million Solar Roofs Initiative will save customers and the state over $6 billion while at the same time providing for our long-term energy needs and improving both our economy and our environment.

Labor Costs Are Keeping PV Systems Expensive

The ability to get PV costs down further will depend on bigger fabs and worker productivity.

Offshore Wind: Europe's EUR 90 Billion Funding Gap

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.
