Off-Grid Know How Connects Countryside to The Net

Wagner & Co is a leading provider of integrated solar thermal and solar electric systems solutions. Off -grid solutions were among the first solar electric applications and yet also developed into a particularly innovative field, where new technologies, approaches and combinations are being tested. Off-grid - or "Island" - systems, as they are also called, can be found in many new infrastructure projects.

Solar Stock Update - July 31/09 - Dow's best month since Oct. '02

The Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its best month in nearly seven years, posting an 882-point boost since Friday, July 3. In fact it was the best July for Wall Street in twenty years.

Solar-Powered Compactors Put the Squeeze on Trash Collection Costs

On April 30, 2009, Mayor Michael Nutter unveiled the first of 500 BigBelly solar-powered trash compactors and 210 companion single-stream recycling units to be installed throughout Center City Philadelphia. The solar compactors save time, money and fuel by reducing demand for collection trips. The compactors are also smart trash receptacles: each unit sends a wireless signal to alert staff when it is full, so managers can optimize collection routes in real time based on data from every machine in the field.

Superconductor Electricity Pipelines: An Optimal Long-Haul Transmission Solution

While the United States is rich in renewable resources for the production of green electricity, expansion and modernization of the North American power grid will be required to transmit that power to where it is needed.

Technical Due Diligence of the Fuhrländer 1.5 MW Wind Turbine

The Many Faces of Green in Architecture

Much is made these days of attaching the word œgreen to products and/or buildings as a means of promoting a product or building in the market place even though the greenness or sustainability may be tenuous at best. I believe it is timely to make clear and to discriminate as to just exactly what do we really mean when we refer to a building as being green as well what kind of green are we referring to. We are all not talking about the same green therefore I wish to examine what I see as the main categories of œgreen.

Using Smart Technology to create a RealGreenHome

In 2005 I swapped a perfectly good town house on 198sq m of land for 5400 sqm of land of œvalley Grassey Forest vegetation. This block some 22 km from the centre of Melbourne Australia (Australia's 2nd largest city) was going to be perfect for my growing family.


BeyWatch is a 30-month research project supported by the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media) aiming at ICT tools for environmental management and energy efficiency. BeyWatch develops an energy-aware and user-centric solution, able to provide intelligent energy monitoring/control and power demand balancing at home/building & neighbourhood level.


Recent technological developments in the electro-reduction of carbon dioxide to formic acid, a valuable chemical with possible application in the steel pickling process, may offer an alternative to expensive large scale carbon capture and storage operations.


Waste-to-energy plants based on gasification are high-efficiency power plants that utilize municipal solid waste as their fuel rather than conventional sources of energy like coal, oil or natural gas.


Over the past 10 years, Sheila Davis has played a valuable role at SVTC and in shaping environmental policy in the high-tech industry. She is one of the co-founders of the Computer TakeBack Campaign and sits on its steering committee. In 1996 she researched and developed the first electronic recycling legislation to reach the California Governor's desk and in 1999 spearheaded the first pilot programs in the country to collect and recycle electronic waste from the residential curbside.


With more than 40 sessions covering everything from producers to users of hydrogen, the conference featured its most relevant content to date, presented by some of the biggest names inside and outside the industry.


On average, it could be assumed that 15% of the world total consumption of diesel, gasoline and jet fuels can be replaced by lignin.
