GE announced today that they have just joined an $8 million funding round for California-based start-up CoolPlanet, which is developing a unique thermal/mechanical processor technology that converts low-grade biomass - such as grass, woodchips, crop residue and algae — into high-grade fuel. With this recent upsurge in funding, can biofuels be a viable reality…
When considering a residential solar power system, homeowners have numerous concerns before they commit to an installation. First and foremost, they are concerned about cost, then they want to know what the structural impact will be on their home and then they will, of course, be concerned about performance of the system. When considering performance, homeowners need to be comfortable with the warranty that comes with their home solar power system and what to expect when purchasing residential solar panels.
St Clair County Community College in Port Huron Michigan becomes the first American college to take delivery of the new Research PowerCube, possibly the most advanced wind and solar research tool available anywhere.
We are in the process of building the most extensive, and broadest cleantech expert community. You might think of this as the first cleantech ‘Linked-in'. Our expert members will come from across academia, industry and professional organizations. Experts will be able to communicate with other experts through our growing social network.
On average we throw away 2.7kgs of food per person, per week. Now, a leading environmental solutions company has developed a technology to convert this waste stream into green renewable energy.
Interdisciplinary cooperation of specialists from engineering, natural sciences, economics and humanities have now become as self-evident for large dam projects, especially those with considerable use of hydro power, as have public relations and awareness raising with the broad population.
PowerbyProxi has just completed a successful trial of the Proxi-Ring™ 480, a frictionless and contact-free slip ring that provides wireless power and data to pitch control systems that drive blades in wind turbines. The technology was developed to replace mechanical slip rings which can be a source of problems for wind turbine operators due to the maintenance requirements and failures caused by physical connections and frictional rotation.
Experts have talked to a number of our friends and other colleagues about solar power, we've been hearing a lot of the same excuses for not going solar.
e85 Flex Fuel Vehicles are becoming more and more popular as the gas prices continue to rise. e85 is defiantly going to be a major relief for the United States fuel problem.
While Achieving Energy, Food, Fuels, And Water Independence By Utilizing Already Existing And Individually Profitable Holistic Component Technologies
Lithium-ion batteries continue to be the technology of choice for small electronics but, as illustrated here, their continued evolution and the introduction of new large format applications require a closer look at the technology inside the battery.
The direct methanol fuel cell or DMFC is emerging as a future winner in many of the applications that fuel cells can satisfy. DMFC is an important subset of the proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology.
Imagine if the next Bill Gates is this minute working on a new solar panel design in his garage with a few friends. Let's hope so ... the Alternative Energy Industry needs it's Microsoft.
All over the world, buildings energy consumption is increasing at a high rate due to the improvement in living standards in developing countries.
Before you decide to hop onto the green building bandwagon, look towards the final destination. Sustainable, integrated, whole-building design is where to head.

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.
