Assessing the Risk of Cleantech Projects

Early risk analysis saves time and money by avoiding costly mistakes at later implementation and rollout phases of projects. It is important to fully assess the profitability and viability of projects using risk modeling techniques before embarking on them.

What's new with connectors for the solar photovoltaic industry?

Getting a jump on proposed UL 6703A standard

Magnetic Energy

Is a perpetual magnetic generator impossible? Maybe, but there have been several patents issued on this theory and as the cost of energy keeps rising, more scientists will be searching for ways to make a working practical perpetual magnetic generator.

Momentum / Inertial Energy

Where M/I shines is in the delivery of vast amounts of energy with no fuel cost. When compared to other non-fuel sources, [solar, wind and hydro-electric] a dense 1 mile M/I installation will generate, during rush hour, as much energy as a 3 square mile photovoltaic installation on a very sunny day.

Biofuels for the future

We still need a lot more research into different biofuels to see which source will be low cost and environmentally safe. Using a weed, pond scum, municipal waste and manure are future possibilities of biofuels that help, rather than damage our food sources and the environment.

Short-Term Politics Stifles Pentagon's Green Energy Ambitions

Undermining the Pentagon's alternative energy plans can only be political, and specifically a Republican attempt to undermine the largely energy-focused campaign of President Barack Obama. After the elections, it should regain lost traction the next time it comes around for a vote.

The Renewable Energy Market Climate

Regulation continues to be a key influencer and driver of the overall solar marketplace. Despite the advantages of solar as a virtually free energy, the market relies on regulation in order to deliver desired returns on investment.

The Army's $7 Billion Renewable Energy Contracts

The military services want the private sector to design, build, own and operate the alternative energy generation capacity and sell the energy to the military services.

New Guidelines Encourage Biodiesel Production in Texas

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has introduced new state guidelines which allow for biodiesel to be blended at any ratio into any compliant fuel.

Just How Green is Google

In the realm of clean energy and the US drive to reduce dependency on foreign fuel imports, Google and other IT giants could wield a significant amount of influence, both on the public and on policy.

Potentially incorrect beliefs currently prevalent in the Solar Energy Industry

It is entirely technically reasonable to amortize the financing of a well engineered solar array over 30-40 years, not just 20.

What is the Cleantech Fellows Institute?

The program addresses the need for experienced, successful cleantech executives to maximize the many technological and business opportunities available in clean technology.

Solar energy's vital role in our energy future

Much of the industry press coverage lately has focused on multi-100MW projects. Yet these large, centralized production facilities are not really the best use of solar energy. They certainly have their usefulness, but distributed generation offers an even better approach.

Cox Enterprises Expands Alternative Energy Use

Cox started focusing on alternative energy projects in 2007 when Cox Conserves, our national sustainability program, was created. Cox Chairman Jim Kennedy is passionate about the environment and wanted to make sure our company is being a good steward of the environment.

PV Fleet Management

PV by nature is an intermittent energy source that can be affected greatly (even over the course of seconds) by weather influences such as passing clouds. While this variability may not be a concern for the individual PV system owner, it is for utilities or system operators that may have tens of thousands of grid-connected PV systems within their service territories.
