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.

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.
Comfort and Energy Efficiency. Step Warmfloor' offers the ultimate in radiant floor heat.
The automobile manufacturers claim that very few people (apparently less than 1000 people in the USA) are willing to buy electric automobiles. However, I know many of us would like to "refuel" our cars by plugging them into an electric outlet at home. If we work together by educating the public, the news media, and the automobile manufacturers, we can make production volume electric automobiles and Grid Rechargeable (plug-in) electric-biodiesel hybrid automobiles a reality.
Remember to keep your batteries full and happy to improve the performance of your alternative energy system. Since alternative energy is the wave of the future let us pioneers learn how to operate them properly today!
Electricity savings for a household of four occupants varied from about 200 kW-h/year to 400 kW-h/year for a single point of use. Extrapolation to a home with at least four points of use would imply electricity savings from 800 kW-h/year to 1600 kW-h/year.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
