Startup Liquid Light has an electrochemical process for converting waste CO2 to valuable chemicals. It's one possible research pathway to making chemicals and fuels with renewable solar and wind.

When most people think about huge batteries on the electricity grid, they imagine they'll be firming up solar and wind farms. But cities have a strong need for energy storage, making them a key proving ground for emerging storage technologies. My story in Scientific American.

Could you to have the courage to write on the New Paradigm of the 21 century?
Could be Einstein wrong? Of course he is since Dr. Carezani showed that he started from the Lorentz’s equations, which are flawed because doesn’t satisfy the Energy Conservation Principle.

Distributed energy technologies - solar, natural gas generators, storage, smart thermostats - are shaking up the electric utility industry. How will they respond when people only use the grid as back up?

If the following experiment confirm that Gravitation is a Pushing, NO Attraction - Newton NEVER used the WORD - we are a steppe ahead to construct the Gravitation Engine.

Big cloud companies get heat for how much dirty energy they use but existing ways to use more renewable energy have lots of hitches. Google today proposes a new tariff, allowing them and other big energy users to push utilities into doing more on renewable energy. I'm doubtful that many utilities will jump in.

Exactly . . . If it's voluntary, what happens if Google and all the other ratepayers participating in this special tariff drop out five years down the road into a power plant that should have at least a 25 year life?  To build a renewable plant in a carbon-tax free world, you need credit, contracts, or government mandated compliance markets that provide some sort of premium.  The utility is not going to be left holding the bag, they'll get to recover their investment through  the ratepayers still standing.

Better data could make solar and wind power cheaper. In Texas or California, which have a high penetration of renewable energy, more accurate power forecasting could save tens of millions of dollars a year. http://www.technologyreview.com/news/518051/better-weather-analysis-could-lead-to-cheaper-renewables/

Really interesting time for this sector of the renewable industry. Did you see the new wind forecasting research center in Texas? http://cleantechnica.com/2013/08/05/wind-energy-research-facility-launched-to-boost-wind-farm-output/

Worried about how vulnerable the electric grid is from attacks? One startup is throwing quantum mechanics/encryption at the problem.

Nest smart thermostat slays peak power with Nest Energy Services - a partnership with a few utilities to use thermostat to reduce peak energy use.

Geothermal is a baseload source of renewable energy but its growth in the US last year was a tepid 5%. An enhanced geothermal demo projects shows how existing fields can become more productive with relatively little financial risk.
