By 2017, Chinese solar panel production will double its annual production of PV to 51,000 megawatts, or almost 70% of global output.
When your power’s out after severe weather, the best battery charger won’t require electricity, fuel, or even sunlight – just a healthy, brisk walk.
Europe has led the solar power revolution for quite some time, but now Asia, and China particularly, have captured the top spot for solar development.
Need a business storage solution? Make sure you’re not paying for anything that you don’t need, or for wastes of resources.
A large family inevitably has a large carbon footprint. But you can make choices that reduce the climate impact of everyday activities.
An environmentally sustainable lifestyle is pretty human friendly: not only do we all need clean air, water, and soil to survive, but being mindful of our consumption of resources provides opportunities for economic independence.
Between humans and livestock, we produce an awful lot of poop… and the methods we currently use to deal with all that mess use a lot of energy and clean water. Startup Pilus Energy thinks they have a solution for extracting value from all that messy stuff…
Even amid policy uncertainty in major wind power markets, wind developers still managed to set a new record for installations in 2012, with 44,000 megawatts of new wind capacity worldwide. With total capacity exceeding 280,000 megawatts, wind farms generate carbon-free electricity in more than 80 countries, 24 of which have at least 1,000 megawatts. At the European level of consumption, the world’s operating wind turbines could satisfy the residential electricity needs of 450 million people.

Harvesting kinetic energy produced by people walking and moving seems like a no-brainer, and the stories we’ve seen so far focus on spaces ranging from dance floors to health clubs. But if you’ve ever been to an elementary or middle school, you know that they may well be the perfect location for such experiments – there’s a lot of energy in those hallways!
As we prepare for another year of publication (and the celebration of our 10th anniversay), we’re taking a look back at what topics and posts did well during 2012.
The great energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy is under way. As fossil fuel prices rise, as oil insecurity deepens, and as concerns about pollution and climate instability cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new world energy economy is emerging. The old energy economy, fueled by oil, coal, and natural gas, is being replaced with an economy powered by wind, solar, and geothermal energy.
