Google wants to build the platform for collecting, managing, and analyzing home energy information for… well, if they have their way, for everybody on earth. PowerMeter is currently in internal beta testing. About four dozen Google employees have home energy monitors to record their power usage (as proxies for the smart meters of the future). A Home Energy gadget on their iGoogle home pages shows them shows how much energy they are using. The gadget tracks historical data and forecasts future trends (similar to the displays available for some of Google's finance applications).
New Jersey Utility Announces Innovative Program to Build 120 MW of Solar Capacity
The Alliance to Save Energy said today it is encouraged that the Senate has passed its version of economic recovery legislation that would invest some $30 billion in energy efficiency to advance the nation's critical job-creation and greenhouse gas reduction needs.
Landfill is the worst environmental option, says UK Waste Strategy - New conference and exhibition EBW UK launched in London
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Proven Energy, the worldwide leading provider of robust, reliable wind turbines announces a new wave of renewable energy in the Indian market.
East Killbride, Scotland ó Proven Energy, a global supplier of robust small wind turbines, has announced an upgrade to its warranty program. A new "Five Year Universal Warranty" will replace the previous two year warranty.
MMA Renewable Ventures and SolarCity Partner to Generate Clean Energy at Montna Farms Rice Dryer
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has reached an agreement with Xcel Energy to provide highly detailed, localized weather forecasts to enable the utility to better integrate electricity generated from wind into the power grid. The U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will support the project by developing mathematical formulas to calculate the amount of potential energy produced by winds blowing at various speeds. The forecasts will help operators make critical decisions about powering down traditional coal-and natural gas-fired plants when sufficient winds are predicted, allowing the utility to increase reliance on alternative energy while still meeting the needs of its customers.
The 2nd edition of the Concentrated Photovoltaics Summit (Toledo, April 28-30) - which last year attracted over 375 people - is expected to welcome over 450 CPV executives in Toledo. The Summit will be followed by a site visit to ISFOC, the first and only CPV test centre in Puertollano.
Zenergy Power plc announces it has been commissioned by RWE Power AG to draft a study to evaluate the potential increase in electrical output achievable from RWE's existing hydro river plants using superconductor variable speed generators.
The proposed Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) to be considered by the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources at a hearing on February 10 falls far short of what is doable and needed according to the SUN DAY Campaign.
With a patent pending technique, lignin and diesel fuel can be well mixed to form a stable liquid state. Such fuel is tested to run diesel engines successfully.
Drivers can now find alternative fueling stations using cell phones & PDAs. Consumers on-the-go can now access the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Alternative Fueling Station Locator using their cell phone, BlackBerry, or other personal digital assistant (PDA). The Mobile Alternative Fueling Station Locator allows drivers to find the five closest biodiesel, electricity, E85 (ethanol), hydrogen, natural gas, and propane fueling sites. This convenient tool uses well-known, easy-to-navigate Google Maps to automatically generate maps to fueling sites and lists each station's contact information and business hours. Detailed driving directions and an instant phone connection to the station can all be accessed at www.afdc.energy.gov/stations/m/ .
IntertechPira, a leading conference and research organization is pleased to announce Dr Jean Posbic, Director of Projects of BP Solar and Dr Tom Surek, PV Consultant and former PV Program Manager of NREL as Co-Chairs for the two-day conference and exhibition.
The U.S. is now the world's top Wind Power Producer and closing in fast on Solar. The U.S. increased its wind capacity by 50 percent last year to a total of 25 GW, enough to power nearly 5 million homes. Germany took a close second with 24 GW of installed wind, while Spain took the third spot. Globally wind power grew by 29 percent, to reach 121 GW total capacity. As one of the most affordable sources of alternative energy -- being only slightly more expensive than coal and nuclear -- wind accounted for 42 percent of the new energy installations in the U.S.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
