#didyouknow  Hot weather can actually increase your vehicle’s fuel economy. This is because your engine doesn't have to warm up as much in warm weather and the warm air causes less aerodynamic drag. Instead it's the actions you take (like air conditioning) to keep comfortable in your car that can make your fuel economy take a hit. Check out these simple fuel economy tips for summer:

Yet, supply and demand issues cause price spikes, speculation has driven up prices, and emerging technologies could replace this as a fuel source for transportation...but the better question is why not?

Whether it’s medical or scientific research, consumer product development or national security, particle accelerators touch nearly every part of our daily lives. Since the early days of the cathode ray tube in the 1890s, particle accelerators have made important contributions to scientific and technological innovation. Today, there are more than 30,000 particle accelerators in operation around the world.

#DidYouKnow that our #water and #energy systems are closely intertwined? 

✓ We need water to produce energy. 
✓ We need energy to use water. 
#Climatechange and population growth affect the availability of both water and energy. 

Our new #infographic breaks down the interdependencies between water and energy. View the full version on ➝

Fortunately the fastest growing renewables, which are also the fastest growing electricity sources, need almost no water to operate. Solar panels need an occasional cleaning to maintain peak generation, but I think windmills are completely water-free. Batteries too.

Happy Summer! 

This year, instead of blasting the air conditioner (and blowing your electricity bills through the roof), you can take simple actions that will help you beat the heat. Check out our new Energy Saver 101 #infographic for everything you need to know about home cooling -- from how air conditioners work and the different types of systems on the market to proper maintenance and tips for lowering your cooling bills.

I missed this opportunity and am not sure how to use Twitter in this way. Do you have a video or text copy of the information on 3D printing. Im very interested. Maybe there's a good site that is recommended. It would be great if your text above...or a following google+ message gave live links to where people, who either missed the Twitter report due to lack of time or sm skills. Im sure if my interest is peaked, especially how 3D printing relates to energy, then surely there are many others. I do know a good bit about internet marketing and promotion works. If you posted a video and other information on your main site, with a live link that it would bring, myself included new and repeat visitors to your site. Then us newbies could learn more about the department of energy, its mission and need for voter support, etc...

hmmm ... wow... This is NOT how energy works.  How about explaining how a spacetime gradient stores energy?
