Look ma no hands!
We've covered vertical wind turbines before, but this one has them all beat. The startup Vortex Bladeless is developing a -- you guessed it -- bladeless micro wind turbine shaped like a super-long popsicle stick only rounder, like an ice cream cone without any ice cream. From a distance it looks like a pole stuck

Tesla next week will announce two battery lines, one for households and another for utilities, that will store power from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, supplementing them when the sun goes down or the weather changes.

Video: This data logger monitors a solar or wind off -grid power system. A current shunt and voltage divider monitors the voltage and current of the system. This data is displayed on the LCD and written to the SD card along with time / date stamping from the real time clock module. A Screw prototyping shield enables easy access to pins for connecting additional sensors like temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, wind speed and direction and rain gauges. Additional information including the web based charting and graphing module is available

How #solarenergy is overpowering the #electricgrid in #Hawaii

In some parts of Hawaii, the local utility company has slowed down approvals of new solar systems, saying that abundant users may threaten the safety and reliability of the power grid.

There goes Woodsy Owl, still giving a hoot...
The US fossil fuel industry is rapidly losing customers, and now it looks like you can add Woodsy Owl to the list. Woodsy is the iconic spokes-owl for the US Forest Service's conservation programs, and the agency has just joined forces with the Energy Department and the General Services Administration for the nation's first ever

UAE Offers Relief To Beleaguered US Shale Gas Industry... Or Not Make up your minds already! Just last year the United Arab Emirates stunned the global energy markets by putting out word that the country was looking to import liquified natural gas from the United States and Canada. That would have been great news for US

The Intertubes have buzzing with news of a new way to make plastic without using petroleum or petrochemicals. Based on artificial photosynthesis, the process uses sunlight and carbon dioxide to make the building blocks for renewable plastics as well as fuels, paints, and your favorite pharmaceuticals. It's all helped along by the notorious bacteria E.

In yet another move to blow off the US fossil fuel industry, the Obama Administration has just announced $75 million in new funding to pursue artificial photosynthesis. Doesn't that sound like one of those silly research projects that certain people were laughing about during the last election cycle? Well, he who laughs last, laughs best.

#Solar #carports hitting the mainstream-- 
The Washington Post raved about the benefits of solar carports earlier this year. It said aesthetics, environmental benefits and ability to use a paved area – rather than green land – to create energy are reasons why the carport market is increasing in size, despite added costs.

My, the space solar power field is getting interesting. Just last year the US Navy threw its hat into the ring, and now here comes aerospace powerhouse Northrop Grumman elbowing in. The company has just thrown down a cool $17.5 million to fund the new Space Solar Power Initiative at the California Institute of Technology,

Gag order or not, here comes more solar power for Florida...
The tubes have been buzzing with Orwellian news out of the Florida, in which environmental officials have apparently received marching orders to deny the human role in climate change. Nevertheless, the solar energy market in Florida could be set to grow in a big way. One clue is a huge new 1.5 gigawatt deal between the

China is already a global solar leader, but you ain't seen nothing yet. The country is slowly but surely starting to march away from coal power, and a new development could turn that slow march into an all-out run. The renewable energy company UGE International has teamed up with financial experts Blue Sky Energy Efficiency
