EPA Administrator Christie Whitman today joined senior executives from DaimlerChrysler and UPS to announce a new government-industry partnership to put hydrogen-powered fuel cell delivery vehicles on the road. For the first time, fuel cell delivery vehicles will be tested in a real-world driving environment on the nation's streets. Whitman unveiled this initiative at EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory (NVFEL) in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The A-300 High-Performance Solar Cell Achieves 20 Percent Efficiency on 2-MW Pilot Line; Affiliation With Cypress Semiconductor to Bring Competitive Advantage in High-Volume Manufacturing
Managing energy costs will be a driving force for the near term adoption of home automation systems, according to a new report by Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). While automatic meter reading (AMR) technologies are deployed in some markets to reduce costs, the latest advancements of utility monitoring will include real-time pricing and energy management for the residential market.
Since entering the global wind energy industry in May 2002, GE Wind Energy has received more than $2 billion in orders and commitments, the company reported today at Windpower 2003, the annual conference of the American Wind Energy Association.
GE Power Systems announced today that it will supply 315 wind turbines, representing more than 470 megawatts of power, to FPL Energy for projects across the U.S. that are expected to begin producing electricity later this year.
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.

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
