We have seen the solar programs serve as a source of community pride for residents and a bonding agent between neighbors. When you make a big decision like going solar as a group, it also tends to remind residents of the larger impact of their decision on the environment and the fight against global warming.
I must thank the celebrities who have brought our cause to the attention of the world. Now let's hope the momentum carries through and we actually start to see real solutions and progress taking place. We need 2008 to be the year of implementation. Time for the engineers to be set free to do what they do best ... build stuff :-)
Large numbers of people are discovering that, with some effort and a little money, a clean, reliable beast of transportation can emerge from ones own garage. Generally referred to as EVs (electric vehicles), these self-made conversions offer low cost of operation and low cost of ownership - a winning combination.
EEI has compiled the following top 10 cooking tips for making sure that the electric bill this holiday season looks as good as the roast.
Over 100 students from four countries comprise the thirteen teams that have submitted design abstracts this year. Design ideas include waste to hydrogen, back-up and emergency power supply, fuel cell and Hydrogen ICE vehicle implementation, just to name a few.
SUV drivers pollute the planet with their gas-guzzling snobbism. Or do they?
Grid-tied PV systems without energy storage do not reduce load in a substantial and predictable way, which will be a keystone of sustainable energy policy. We will need to institute three main objectives to reduce greenhouse gasses and localize power production to facilitate smaller, efficient local power plants.
By far the most popular items among the technology-dazzled laymen were the hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. Among the cars on display were a number of first-generation Honda FCX hatchbacks, which had attracted a crowd clamoring for rides.
"What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know, it's what we know for sure that just ain't so." -- Mark Twain
With the fossil fuel prices increasing rapidly, the waste from scrap tires will certainly be increasingly be made use of. Developing innovative and economical as well as effective systems for TDF usage is and will always be a challenge to the business.
Until now, acoustic or sound energy has not been used effectively to impose thrust or force on an object for purposes of providing useful work.
If you want to make a simple, quick change right now that will lighten the load on the earth and save you money, you can focus on just one thing: lighting. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), 19% of global electricity generation is taken for lighting.
Dimming lights by 25% reduces electricity consumption by 20% and quadruples the life of light bulbs.
Small business qualify for the 30% solar and fuel cell investment tax credit, and receive 5-year accelerated depreciation, incentives for 50% lighting reductions, use of combined heat and power are now part of the House and Senate bills.
The new century oil and coal companies will "Grow" their carbon fuels in bioreactors using safe and cost-effective biotechnology.
