A hectare of jatropha yields more than four times as much fuel per hectare as soybean, and more than ten times that of corn.
The Government recently announced the launch of their "Carbon Challenge" which aims to create five zero carbon or near carbon developments throughout the UK in order to provide working examples to the building industry. The idea is to encourage house builders to implement good building practices in order to meet the 2016 CO2 emissions targets.
With all of us now keen on doing our best to find out those alternative energy avenues that will make or break civilization fifty years from now, it is imperative that individuals and professionals try to convince their governments, corporations & scientific research institutions of the need to put in more research into exploring algae as a feedstock for oil.
With ever increasing temperatures, less rainfall and a summer hosepipe ban a likely possibility this year, The Renewable Energy Centre discusses water recycling and how useful it will be to us in the future?
All in all, I am impressed with some of the strides that have been taken in rebuilding the coast with green in mind. While by no means is it an end to the challenges on being more efficient and using more alternative energy, it is a a start.
Ocean plankton restoration offers a powerful remedial approach to global warming that also rescues critical ecosystems, profitably finances itself, and can help allay further resistance to CO2 regulation based on economic qualms.
In this article, we offer a few tips on growing houseplants without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. That way, you can clean the air of your home or office without the potentially harmful effects of chemicals!
All over the world, buildings energy consumption is increasing at a high rate due to the improvement in living standards in developing countries.
The best solutions come from within the community, working on the ground with dedicated entrepreneurs and local groups, who best understand the needs of their community.
Do something Sustainable (and thus Patriotic) every day. Take a simple walk instead of taking "a ride," invest in renewable by installing solar or wind, or buying green from your utility, use a compact fluorescent bulb, buy local vegetables, switch to a bio-fuel, trade in that gas hog for something clean and efficient.
We use about 128,640 horsepower-hours, or the equivalent of 147 energy slaves working for each of us 24/7, all year long.
Too often the energy debate is fragmented, and focuses on advantages of a particular technology and disadvantages of its alternatives. If we exclude the nuclear option portfolio, a plan is needed how to do without it.
Next generation waste management may be significantly improved by using different technology to better manage solid wastes.
With policies both in US and Europe planning for a systematic exploitation of renewable energy on a strategic scale, the stage is all set now for the fuller development of tidal power on a world wide scale.
The technology is so profitable that electricity and natural gas (methane) will be sold to citizens and businesses at a 20% discount from existing retail while permitting cities and counties to disconnect from the electricity grid thereby becoming energy independent on a fully sustainable basis.

Eliminate Solar Rack Ballast and Reduce Rooftop Material Handling. PowerGrip™ Universal (PGU) is a commercial roof mount system designed to secure solar racks and other equipment to any type of commercial roofing system. PGU provides a secure connection directly to the roof deck or structural members and is designed to reduce or eliminate ballast in solar racking systems, so there's less weight on the roof and less material handling. Made of heavy-duty cast aluminum, PGU units include a base ring which is secured through the roofing cover and into the structural roof deck, and a waterproof top plate.
