High altitude wind -- which basically entails using kites and small planes to harvest energy from atmospheric winds -- exists only in the prototype and PowerPoint stage right now, but several national governments are already showing signs of interest
China has become the world's largest energy user, having overtaken the United States, the head of the International Energy Agency said on Tuesday.
The Empire State Building, arguably the world’s most famous office tower, is 1,472 vertical feet of historic American real estate. It also contains 2.8 million square feet of office space, constructed to the energy efficiency standards of the early 1
Active metamaterials might be used in solar cells that change properties with the weather.
Tax credits, rebate checks, personalized home visits, government giveaways — even customer service calls from top corporate executives.
US officials believe that developing shale gas would provide fast-growing China and India with a cleaner alternative to coal, a key culprit in carbon emissions blamed by scientists for a dangerous warming of the planet.
Iraq's sharp upward revision of its oil reserves to 143.1 billion barrels, and the prospect that there's much more to come, has cemented the country's status as a long-term energy producer when researchers say global oil output is set to decline.
Nanomaterials could help solar cells convert more sunlight into electricity than once thought possible.
Focusing on the electric power sector, power outages and power quality disturbances cost the U.S. economy over $80 billion annually, and up to $188 billion per year. Transmission and distribution losses in the U.S. were about 5% in 1970, and grew to

You see, right now — despite the “public” opposition — Uncle Sam is secretly authorizing the largest onshore oil extraction project in U.S. history. Combined with Canadian production, we're looking at more than three trillion barrels!
A nuclear plant will cost $7,000 to $10,000 per kilowatt, says Mark Cooper of the University of Vermont. That’s more than wind, solar, storage and other renewables—and the price tag will continue to climb.
Wind power producers can, therefore, take whatever price is offered. "If the marginal price is at $40, and the wind plant is operating, it will get $40 per megawatt hour for wind. If the market's at $30, you'll get $30," Smith said. "It's a pri
Even without climate legislation, other market forces are compelling the industry to change. Wind and other forms of renewable energy are becoming more cost-competitive with fossil-fuel based generation, and states are setting aggressive renewable en
Forget that GLOBAL WARMING ISN’T EVEN REAL and that the purveyors of this junk science were involved in a United Nations inspired scheme to defraud the industrialized world out of trillions of dollars via “Green” taxes and fees, the Obama administrat
The new energy-efficient way to light your home is with LEDs. An upcoming crop of bulbs draw 12 watts or less, edging out a typical fluorescent, and they have a more conventional shape, contain no mercury, and last at least 25,000 hours, three times
s yet another significant step towards proving to stakeholders, project sponsors, regulators and the general public that tidal power is the most exciting emerging technology in the renewable power generation mix”, said Atlantis CEO, Tim Cornelius. “
Thorium One ton of thorium can produce as much energy as 200 tons of uranium and 3.5 million tons of coal
There’s a lot of drilling for natural gas going on in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia: the rush to tap the huge natural gas reserves of the Marcellus Shale fields. The drilling and building of pipelines has meant an
Jiaolong China's Jiaolong sub, shown here under construction, will search for energy sources and rare-earth metals in the deep sea.
In the fall of 2007, David Bradwell, an MIT grad student, created a new kind of battery--one that might eventually be used to store massive amounts of solar and wind energy for use at night or when the wind isn't blowing.
he authors argue that stated coal reserves are a poor guide to actual, recoverable coal. Reserve numbers have been inflated for years; every time someone's taken a close look, they've been revised sha
Maurice Gunderson, senior partner at CMEA Capital, believes that grid-scale storage is a "game changer" in the alternative energy battle. Gunderson has been working in the energy industry for more than 30 years and co-founded the first greentech i
The United States alone has 30 per cent of the world's reserves, and scientists in Texas say they have found a way to convert coal into gasoline at a cost of less than $30 (U.S.) a barrel - with zero release of pollutants. R
Founder of A123 Systems starts a new company to commercialize the technology. A new startup company will attempt to solve the biggest roadblock facing electric vehicles today--the cost of their batteries.
Suffice to say that America might have yet another reason to hang around:
The government said the blown-out well is not securely plugged to his satisfaction and that the drilling of the relief well - long regarded as the only way to ensure that the hole at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico never leaks oil again - must go fo
Experts on the nation's electricity system point to a frighteningly steep increase in non-disaster-related outages affecting at least 50,000 consumers. During the past two decades, such blackouts have increased 124% -- up from 41 blackouts between 19

Amazing! Just think of the possibilities.
