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.
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".

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.
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.
Fuel cells are only starting to enter the marketplace and due to the many operational and cost benefits they offer they should start to be accepted on an accelerated basis.
Building Cars For Our Eternal Children's Genes, Using The Energy That We Still Have To Make The Worl
This project's car body is made from plastic composites that can be produced from plants and is more easily bio-degradable, and is therefore potentially very lightweight!
The technology is so profitable that electricity and natural gas (methane) will be sold to citizens and businesses at a 20% discount from existing retail while permitting cities and counties to disconnect from the electricity grid thereby becoming energy independent on a fully sustainable basis.
Autumn is the time to break new ground on ideas you have had that you would like to see implemented before spring.
Santa Clara University's vision was to build a green technologies test center that can evolve with new technologies and be a place of discovery, learning, systems testing, and student community.
The hybrid vehicle modified by ECD Ovonics has a driving range of nearly 200 miles and requires about 8 minutes for refueling using a filling pressure of 1500 psi. A practical first step on the road to a hydrogen-fueled future
The use of trigeneration systems reduces the consumption of fossil fuels, per unit of energy required for a typical building, by about 40% compared to that used by conventional air-conditioning systems.
Oil is running out, maybe sooner than later. Can alternatives supply a solution? There are bright spots on the horizon.
To begin to make changes, it is important to know how much energy you are currently using. If you don't save your gas and electricity bills, it is a good idea to start doing so now.
GridPoint's intelligent energy management appliance manages both traditional and renewable energy to reduce costs - and also provides clean, silent and automatic backup power.

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
