Without a doubt, electric car prices have come down substantially in recent years — the Nissan Leaf is actually about $7,000–$8000 cheaper than the average conventional or average hybrid electric vehicle.
Fossil fuels are formed from the remains of plants and animals that died hundreds of millions of years ago, buried and transformed by heat and pressure.
Tesla Motors, makers of fine electric performance vehicles, recently surprised the mainstream with news its Model S performance sedan had surpassed Mercedes S-Class, Audi A8 and BMW 7-series in sales for the first quarter in the US.
Information is power, right?
How water could be harnessed for roughly a third of U.S. annual electricity usage
Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have come up with a promising design for a lithium-sulfur rechargeable battery that is considerably cheaper and energy-dense than standard lithium-ions. Using a solid electrolyte rather than a l
How many different articles, news stories, forum threads and blog posts have you read, over and over again, looking for sensible off grid energy equipment?
How would you like swarms of kite-like airborne turbines spinning at high altitudes sending power down via nano-tube cable tethers to generate power for your community?
A new study by researchers at UC Santa Barbara provides clues into the understanding of the behavior of the charged molecules or particles in ionic liquids.
A new enzyme — capable of aiding in the cost-effective conversion of woody-waste into liquid fuel — was recently discovered during research on the tiny marine wood-borers known as ‘gribble’.
This is one powerful bicycle
Despite countless examples that prove the contrary, detractors, debunkers and non believers continually argue that the Bilderberg group holds no power, and that it is just a talking shop for elite has-beens.
An ambitious experiment is underway to harness the heat of a volcano in central Oregon. The process is green, efficient... and causes earthquakes.
Engineers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have announced the successful testing of an all-solid lithium-sulfur battery with about four times the energy density of today’s lithium-ion batteries.
If it's been a few years since you looked at electric vehicles (EVs), you may want to consider the latest models. There are new innovations and lower prices that make electrics more competitive.
In a broad perspective the automotive world is moving towards a green future, but this transition is not without its glitches and hassles.
The U.S. government announced Tuesday that it would be going forward with long-discussed plans to auction federal leases off the Atlantic Ocean coast for the development of offshore wind energy.
Technology, technology, and more technology—this is what has driven the American oil and gas boom starting in the Bakken and now being played out in the Gulf of Mexico revival
A totalitarian [control] grid system under the guise of "sustainability" --propaganda ... these so-called "smart" meters put out extreme health damaging electromagnetic pulse radiation 24/7 and will always know when you're home, your energy use, and
Prepare for a fight over fracking for black gold in the Golden State.
A battery made of cheap materials could store power when it’s windy for use when it’s not.
There are not many electric cars or plug-in hybrids on the road but there may be a good reason for that.
Solar-powered cellphone batteries may soon be able to almost double the battery life of mobile technology, and batteries could be recharged without being plugged in.
Imagine an artificial leaf that mimics photosynthesis, which lets plants harness energy from the sun. But this leaf would have the ability to power your homes and cars with clean energy using only sunlight and water. This is not some far-off idea of
Subsidies for corn ethanol, and mandates for its use, are corporate welfare pure and simple. You’ll not find an honest environmentalist who supports its use as a motor fuel. But every four years we are subjected to an ugly spectacle called the Iowa P
