BIO-TECHNOLOGY EASES BUILDINGS' ADVERSE EFFECTS

Green plants have cleaned and purified air and water on earth since the beginning of time. Used in buildings, they provide other health and business benefits as well.

green roofs can become a real solution to many of the environmental problems

With modern technology and inventiveness, green roofs can become a real solution to many of the environmental problems that we are facing today.

The Sustainable, Architectural, Infrastructural, Global and Personal Future

World history has always seen the development of small-scale, innovative technologies to larger-scale applications. Why not pursue this same evolution with such bold new schemes as those shown here, that combine food and energy production, increased proximity to nature and access to high and low speed transportation links?

Alternative Energy - An Environmentally Friendly Solution for Reducing Energy Costs

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.

DynaMotive's Modular BioOil Plant to be Deployed in Canada and Internationally

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.

Working the Soil and Shifting the Paradigm:

For the modern home gardener, it may take a personal "revolution" to shift your gardening paradigm away from using harmful chemicals, as chemical gardening is generally seen as less work than organic gardening.

What Is Anaerobic Digestion?

Renewable energy technology is powering farms and small communities while controlling organic waste volume and odor.

Do A Little Energy Homework Before Investing In Renewable Energy Production

Using renewable energy means taking responsibility for our own needs. If you've started by making sure your needs are in control, your chance for success is high!

Up On The Roof - Algae Appetites May Transform Waste Into Energy

The goal: to determine if the system can be scaled up so actual emissions from a live power plant can be transformed from greenhouse gases to, well, green resources.

Safety In Numbers: Distributed Generation's

Distributed generation gives building owners the option to generate their own energy in one form or another. Utilities can maintain the system when the building owners do not want to manage it.

A Router for Electrical Energy

Overall, the 'router' for power is a first step towards an energy model that is more efficient because it uses locally generated power at the highest possible efficiency. As more and more manufacturers design their electronic appliances to be DC compatible, the concept will proliferate.

Combining The Sun's Heat And Light Could Boost Water-Splitting Efficiency

Using the sun's heat and light together could be an efficient way to produce hydrogen, which in turn could be used to power cars, homes and businesses.

Education In Construction: Cat Announces The Wise Project

The project aims to minimise environmental impacts both during construction and during occupancy. Current best environmental practice in building is the BREEAM criteria - The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.

Learn To Conserve

If you want to have a renewable energy system you need to learn to conserve well in advance of buying the system.

No More Coals To Newcastle!

The concept of using biodiesel may seem a new one, but it is not. Rudolph Diesel's first engine ran on peanut oil and now, a century later, it seems we are finally learning that natural oils are better for our health , our environment and ultimately our economy than fossil alternatives.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

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.
