Grid Friendly™ Appliances

What can home appliances do to help ensure the reliability of the electricity grid? A lot—if 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

By The Numbers

When calculations are performed it is important to make sure that you obtain ALL the relevant numbers in order to arrive at the correct answer.

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.

Sustainable Energy: What's it All About?

The first in a series that explores the future of sustainable energy across British Columbia

North America Leads The Way In Innovation

North America may be making up for its reluctance to embrace a legislation-driven approach to transforming the use of energy by wholeheartedly nurturing companies pushing the boundaries of innovation in the sector.

Solar Technology - The Bright Spot In Homeland Security

Homeland Security and the Department of Defense Initiatives Have Led to Further Innovations in the Renewable Energy Sector

Small Hybrid Solar And Wind Energy Systems

The small hybrid solar and wind energy system at NREL's Outdoor Test Facility produces 1,400 watts of power from solar and 900 watts from the wind turbine, enough to power a refrigerator, lights, heaters, air coolers, computers and a radio.

The Hydrogen Economy And Fuel Cells

Fuel cells will be one of the key components in the hydrogen economy. They will replace the internal combustion engine and will convert the future main store of energy (hydrogen) to power when it is needed.

Energy Capital VS Energy Income

The major difference between the financial and the energy world is that our current energy capital IS NOT replaceable; it is by it's very nature "non-renewable". As a result, our job as managers of our planet's energy portfolio is to create an "energy balance sheet" that has the proper mix of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources.

NEW ENERGY BILL: Reducing Our Dependence On Foreign Oil

The lion's share of oil consumption stems from transportation needs. In 2002, the transportation sector accounted for about 68% of total petroleum use with gasoline accounting for two-thirds of the petroleum consumed in the transportation sector.
