Though North America lags Europe on the wind energy front, with less cumulative installed capacity despite a vast geographical size difference, growth is strong and has only scratched the surface. Huge potential, particularly, exists in offshore installations, which represent just a small percentage of global wind capacity to date. Ocean-based turbines, both floating and fixed, take advantage of powerful, more consistent wind speeds and a topography that doesn't obstruct wind flow.
Many people mistakenly buy larger air conditioning units than they need because they believe that a larger unit will both operate and cool their house more efficiently. In truth, a larger unit could be less efficient.
Foundations are critical to the success of a wind turbine project, and since foundation types are as varied as the earth conditions and types of structures being supported, we examine below some of the considerations involved in foundation selection such as siting, cost, and geotechnology.
This invention is related to Stirling motor, which is an external combustion engine heat machine also known as hot air engine that also enables thermal energy to be converted to mechanical energy.

As photovoltaic technology increasingly penetrates mainstream markets rooftop solar PV system integration based on series configured arrays are becoming antiquated due to new system design architectures enabled by new inverter technologies.
With the advent of "home area networks" which allow consumers to be able to see what they are using in real time and make adjustments and decisions accordingly, this data could potentially be used by third parties to assist the consumer with those decisions. It will be important for that information to have privacy provisions built in so that third parties cannot access the data for purposes that have not been authorized by the consumer.

A Tesla Roadster has become the first electric vehicle to win the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally and the first to win an FIA-sanctioned competition. Driven by Formula One driver Erik Comas, the Arctic white Roadster beat 96 competitors in range, efficiency and performance. The Roadster's victory in the three-day, nearly 1,000-kilometer challenge also marks the first time an electric vehicle has dominated a certified Federation Internationale de l'Automobile competition. The Roadster scored definitive victories in two additional categories, including the Efficiency Cup and the Electric Vehicles Cup.
