The California Fuel Cell Partnership today launched its 2003 'Rally Thru The Valley,'a caravan that will take advanced fuel cell vehicles through the State's Central Valley, a region plagued by poor air quality, to validate the potential for this near- to zero-emission transportation technology.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) reported today that the U.S. wind energy industry is on track to install 1,100-1,400 MW of new capacity this year, despite the power generation industry's generally poor outlook. The growth that is underway across the country is expected to boost U.S. installed wind power capacity from current levels of close to 4,700 MW to approximately 6,000 MW (enough to serve 1.5 million homes).
The global fuel cell industry will generate more than $18.6 billion in 2013, according to new findings from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). Fuel cell sales will be generated from three main market applications: Automotive, Stationary, and Portables. ABI projects sales could generate near $35 billion if market conditions improve for automotive fuel cells, driven by strong government endorsement from three major regions -- the U.S., EU, and Japan.
Tapping the power of the sun was the theme of today's Junior Solar Sprint Solarbrate event hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Tapping the power of the sun will be the theme of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) Junior Solar Sprint Solarbrate event on May 10. Visitors will see participating students race solar cars and build solar models using K'NEX construction toys.
ICP Global Technologies (www.icpglobal.com), manufacturers of the iSun portable solar charger, just came back from the 31st International Exhibition of Inventions held from April 9th to the 13th in Geneva with three awards: The Gold medal with Jury praises in the Environment and Energy category, the International Press Grand Prize and The City of Geneva Prize.
ABI has updated its forecasts for fuel cell vehicle shipments in the study and also updated its analysis of the changing global fuel cell business environment. The study exposes regional characteristics of the automotive fuel cell sector and outlines a timeline for potential fuel cell penetration in the next ten years.
The U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has recently appointed two new members to its independent panel of advisers.Named to the NREL National Advisory Council were Dr. James Sweeney, professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, and Bill Baxter, director of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
More than 400 scientists, engineers, industrial leaders, and policy makers are expected to gather for formal presentations, poster sessions and informal discussions about the state-of-the-art technology for producing our consumer and industrial energy needs from sustainable plant and plant-derived materials rather than fossil fuels.

Employees at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are doing their part to reinforce the message of Earth Day and "walking the talk" by reducing their impact on the environment at work through the Laboratory's "Sustainable NREL" program.
GE Wind Energy plans to expand its family of wind turbines with the introduction of the 2.x series, which will include 2.3, 2.5 and 2.7 megawatt machines designed for a wide range of onshore applications.
West Roxbury Home Will Be First for Massachusetts Initiative
The number of fuel cell vehicles that will be introduced to the world in the coming decade will reach 800,000 by 2012, according to a new study by research firm Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). "Fuel cell vehicles launched by Honda and Toyota will be contributing critical knowledge for early roll outs in niche markets, in the second half of this decade", explains Atakan Ozbek, ABI Director of Energy Research and author of the study.
Micro fuel cell markets will see their first commercial products in 2004, according to a recent study by research firm Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). Micro fuel cells (MFCs) for consumer electronics will soon be observed in products ranging from wireless handsets to notebook computers to video cameras/camcorders. ABI's study, "Micro Fuel Cell End User Markets," predicts that MFC unit shipments will reach as many as 200 million worldwide by 2011.

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
