If 2015 is the year of personal energy storage, i.e. batteries, then keep your eyes peeled on flow cell batteries. I was impressed with it last year, it will make a lot of waves this year... pun, intended!

A new redox flow battery developed at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) more than doubles the amount of energy that this type of cell can pack in a given volume, approaching the num...

Better solar cell structure promises better performance. Reminds me of battery technology's fast pace of improvements and breakthroughs.

A tiny structure called the fovea centralis may be the key to a huge boost in solar cell efficiency, thanks to work by a team of scientists at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and the Max Planck Institute...

Solar is so cheap, the problem now is how to pay for it. Prices for panels are down more than 65 percent in five years, to less than 70 cents a watt. What's next? One word: financing.

Finally real news worthy Apple iCar... news. If you're like me and absolutely fed up with the rumor mill between a supposedly buy-out of Tesla from Apple, then this should bring a smile to your face. And no, Tesla Motors ISN'T for sale. Please read relevant and intelligent news, not the hogwashes that passes as news these days.

Flow cell batteries have a lot potential. I interviewed American Vanadium last year and walked away thinking this was the best residential solution.
The leasing market has been a boon for the solar industry, ramping up residential installations for the past several years and with continued growth expected for the near future. Now the folks at ViZn Energy Systems hope to spark that same success for the energy storage market. ViZn has partnered wi

We need to have “the talk” about solar power and equity, because ignoring uncomfortable questions will invite misinformation and bad decisions. We need an informed dialogue about how local solar power can impact low-income communities and communities of color in the U.S. We need to talk

Technologies to harness wave and tidal power have been under development for over 40 years, but up until quite recently the center of technology development has been in Europe, where the resource intensity is greater than the United States’ coasts. However, in an effort to nurture the country&

    I write and cover Tesla Motors news and lifestyle, and have a very fun time at it. Tesla Motors is more than just a buzz word. It is the shape of things to come in many industries, and a clear more modern and efficient business template.

I would say beyond amazing when it comes to Nuci. The story is sad but it serves to help a generation of young musicians often left to follow their passion sometimes to detrimental results. Nuci inspired me. A place where young musicians can come rehearse, buy affordable music instrument but most of all, have access to affordable healthcare and health professionals. Simply amazing and inspiration to us all. Hope to see more hubs like these around the country and worldwide.

When you call, they quote different prices, $82 to 97 and no guaranty on the price. Close to $20 without knowing until you get there. Nice.
