The clean energy sector powered ahead in 2007, according to analysts New Energy Finance. In spite of difficult conditions on the credit markets, the amount of new money invested in the sector grew to $117.2bn, up 35% from 2006's $86.5bn, and more than $20bn ahead of predictions.
The largest electric drive conference in the world
Here in the U.S., a comprehensive energy bill was just signed into law - we have included a great overview of what is included and how it affects the industry at the end of the article.
Leading by example, renewable energy firms are developing "green" or environmentally friendly employee benefits which align the core values of a CEO and culture of their organization with the core values of each employee.
HPCC's energy efficient applications, such as networking thermostats in homes and demand control, remote management of high power appliances, etc. ensure a more environmentally friendly future.
I think the most important fact to keep in mind is that tidal energy is more predictable than wind and look at how that is regarded. Tidal energy can also be used in desalination, hence providing clean energy and a clean water resource for developing nations.
With a sudden burst of momentum, where do we take the next step in 2008? Production and delivery will be key. Many future car enthusiasts were promised new technologies only to be burned with failures of delivery in the manufacturing facilities. Cost efficient fuel is a must. Build a better battery and they will come.
A Power Purchase Agreement, or PPA, is a long-term contract to buy power from a specific energy provider. Solar PPAs are agreements between a provider and a customer to purchase on-going solar power at a long-term rate, often equal to or less than market rates.
Green Plug believes the time has come for a reusable, multi-port power supply that can provide a universal power interface for all electronic products. The company is also taking a stand for setting a worldwide DC power standard.
The marine energy industry has a long way to go but ongoing research and government support should lead to improvements making these technologies more economically attractive in the future. Combined with intensifying company activity in this field, Europe is poised to be the place to watch in the marine energy arena of the future.
The only way to raise wind loading on the blade in the vertical turbine with a horizontal axis, without causing their destruction and worsening their aerodynamic quality, is increase in quantity of blades and a fastening their ends by a ring in a shape of an airfoil.
Any industry has indeed the right to look out for its interests. However, will it not look ridiculous if the so-called tough emissions standards hit the streets (pun intended) at the same time as top-notch top-range luxury vehicles such as the Mercedes S-class, already operating well within compliance?
European waste management market is continuing to restructure and reform. The ongoing move away from landfill is continuing to attract technological innovation and the current leaning towards waste to energy in many parts of Europe is attracting major capital investment with improving opportunities for returns.
Boeing's work to make the 787 Dreamliner the world's first eco-friendly airliner have inspired engineers and flight designers across the globe to design more fuel efficient airplanes.

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.
