A Lesson In Energy Economics 101

As fuel costs increase and the demand for power grows, expect your electricity bill to grow as well. To all those who have not included energy conservation in their business plans, this will be a wake-up call -- don't be caught by surprise!

Climate Change:

This year's hurricanes have global warming written all over them: the water is warmer because the atmosphere is warmer, feeding the hurricanes more energy.

Rebuild Smarter and More Environmentally Friendly

For too long areas have just done what was done before when it came to building houses. Let's use some of these amazing technologies as the backbone of rebuilding the Gulf Coast.

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.

Towards a Workable Post-Kyoto, International Framework for Emissions Reduction

In this paper we outline a possible alternative architecture for a successor regime, based on a single flexible emission reduction target for all countries and the principle of a treaty accession process, such as that which has resulted in other successful multilateral organisations.

31 Years After the First Energy Crisis, The Need for an Energy Strategy

A secure, clean, safe, healthy and economically efficient energy supply is no longer a technology development challenge, but largely a matter of investment in infrastructure and deployment of modern solutions on a massive scale.

Last Chance for Gas

Oil is running out, maybe sooner than later. Can alternatives supply a solution? There are bright spots on the horizon.

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.

The Wind Blows For Free

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.

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.

Performance Standards For Solar Modules And Collectors - Why They Are Important?

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.

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!

No Apologies

"Renewable energy works; it is as reliable as the sunrise; it will help us keep our planet habitable; and it's an excellent, cost-effective investment to make; NOW."

Renewable Energy - The Next Opportunity For Silicon Valley

It is interesting to ponder what would happen if the technology industry were to invest aggressively in energy. This is an industry that invented computers and then made them so powerful and so small that today we think nothing of toting a supercomputer in a backpack.

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.
