Wind Tree Project Turns Street Art into Electric Power

A new French start-up, NewWind, is making wind power beautiful!  Their new Wind Tree offers almost a hundred mini-windmills on an apparatus designed to look like a tree. Due to the light construction of the “leaves,” the Wind Tree generates power at wind speeds as low as 4.4 miles per hour!  This translates into sustained operation times (an average of 320 days a year) that are almost double those of standard windmills that need higher wind speeds in order to…

Energy Secretary Steven Chu will Not Deny Love Affair with Solar Panel

“I just want everyone to know that my decision not to serve a second term as Energy Secretary has absolutely nothing to do with the allegations made in this week’s edition of the Onion. While I’m not going to confirm or deny the charges specifically, I will say that clean, renewable solar power is a growing source of U.S. jobs and is becoming more and more affordable, so it’s no surprise that lots of Americans are falling in love with solar.”

Say Goodbye to Nuclear Power

It’s the end of the world as we know it, but that is not a bad thing. This is the dawn of a new era in which the planet’s residents finally realize that nuclear energy was a really bad idea.

The horrific growing nuclear meltdown crisis in Japan is hopefully going to be the wake up call that we need to begin dismantling all of the nuclear reactors on the planet. Sustainable energy sources, like solar and wind, are now not only far cheaper than nuclear power, they are safe, clean and easy to repair when something goes wrong.

Solar Thermal Water Heating, Israel and the Future

Using the power of the sun to heat your water is one of the simplest ways that you can make your home more energy efficient. Heating water usually accounts for 40 percent of an average family’s heating costs. Converting to inexpensive solar thermal water heating is a great first step that will not only allow us to utilize a much more clean, affordable and sustainable source of energy, it will also create jobs and help our nation to become more energy independent.

Solar Panel Installation in Australia Financially Driven (Not Environmentally Driven)

The results of a recent survey by Sun Connect, an Australian solar power installation company, show that rising electricity bills have a major influence on homeowner’s decisions to go solar. Respondents pointed to high electricity bills, anticipated electricity price rises, and pain caused by high power costs, as significant areas of concern. In fact, when solar panel owners were asked why they originally converted to solar, the results show that people were 2.6 times more likely to identify “electricity bills…

Energy Generating Speed Bumps Get Green Light in London

Moving vehicles will generate electricity for street lights and road signs in a London trial. “Green” speed bumps that will generate electricity as cars drive over them are to be introduced on Britain’s roads. The hi-tech “sleeping policemen” will power street lights, traffic lights and road signs in a pilot scheme in London that could be rolled out nationwide. Speed bumps have long been the bane of motorists’ lives, but these will capture the kinetic energy of vehicles.

First Solar Energy Plant Completed in Iran

Iran inaugurated its first solar energy power plant this week, adding 250 KW of solar energy to the country’s grid. The Shiraz solar power plant boasts a modest 250 KW energy production capacity. It’s a solar thermal plant that uses parabolic mirrored troughs to gather sunlight. The mirrors focus the sunlight in an intense ray on a tube that runs the length of the array of mirrors. Inside the tube, a liquid insulated by a vacuum transfers the heat of…
