RORMaxx - Wind Powered Sports Car 

 RORMaxx

In the ongoing search for alternative energy, few things have been so overlooked as wind. Granted, many places are beginning to accept wind power as an easily accessible form of renewable energy, but still others don’t see its potential. It is this problem that 2 young minds from California have set out to solve.

China Closes The Clean-Coal Gap With The U.S.

China Closes The Clean-Coal Gap With The U.S. 

 An artist’s concept of China’s first integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant

China looks set to overtake the United States in the application of technologies to clean up coal-fired power generation, if several proposed projects come to fruition. GreenGen–a joint venture established by Chinese utilities–has broken ground on China’s first integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant and signed agreements to build two more.

Solar Powered Cargo Ship

Solar Powered Cargo Ship

Harnessing the sun in a big way

Solar-powered sails the size of a jumbo jet’s wings will be fitted to cargo ships, after a Sydney renewable energy company signed a deal with China’s biggest shipping line. The Chatswood-based Solar Sailor group has designed the sails, which can be retro-fitted to existing tankers.

LawnPC: Visions To Transform Computing In The Future

LawnPC:  Visions To Transform Computing In The Future

 

Technology isn’t always on the same page with sustainability. Still when green innovation transforms the trajectory, even we find ourselves inclining towards the novelty. Such is the LawnPC, which visions to transform computing in the near future. The concept PC from David Veldkamp is powered by the solar cells attached to the grass like lawn on the PC, made from natural cotton fabric these blades transfer the generated 60 watts of energy down to the plug-in button at the bottom each blade. The concept requires no cooling fans, just put it where natural light and air are readily available and then leave rest on this wirelessly functional device that’ll give you the cleanest computing all the time.

Portable Nuclear Power In Your Backyard

Portable Nuclear Power In Your Backyard

A radically different mindset than the “nuclear is too dangerous for anybody” of the 1980s

Nuclear reactors don’t produce ‘bombs’ alone. Fast forward to the year 2013 and you can have an endless power supply by just installing a portable nuclear power unit in your backyard. Before eyebrows are raised about the security aspect, we must tell you that only “highly enriched” Uranium fuel is something you need to worry about. This nuclear reactor concept would make use of Uranium Hydride, which doesn’t invite sanctions, is super-safe and renewable, and generates waste only the size of a watermelon (if used for 10 years). Hyperion’s home nuclear reactor concept promises a lot – most of which is centered on providing people with an alternate source of energy that doesn’t exhaust itself.

Existing Power Grid Limits Potential for Renewable Energy

 Existing Power Grid Limits Potential for Renewable Energy

Where is Tesla’s wireless power when you need it?

The dirty secret of clean energy is that while generating it is getting easier, moving it to market is not. The grid today, according to experts, is a system conceived 100 years ago to let utilities prop each other up, reducing blackouts and sharing power in small regions. It resembles a network of streets, avenues and country roads.

Breakthough to Unleash Solar Revolution

 Breakthough to Unleash Solar Revolution

Daniel Nocera has developed a simple method to split water molecules and produce oxygen gas

In a revolutionary leap that could transform solar power from a marginal, boutique alternative into a mainstream energy source, MIT researchers have overcome a major barrier to large-scale solar power: storing energy for use when the sun doesn’t shine. (Video)
