SUNVOLTAGE GOES DIRECTLY TO POWER MICROELECTRONICS WITH NO BATTERIES

Researchers at the University of Twente’s MESA Institute for Nanotechnology has allowed for the direct placement of solar cells onto microelectronics In a new, more efficient approach to solar powered microelectronics, researchers have produced a microchip which directly integrates photovoltaic cells. While harnessing sunlight to power microelectronics isn’t new, conventional set-ups use a separate solar […]

COLLECTING & USING THE HEAT FROM YOUR HOME COMPUTERS TO CREATE USEABLE ENERGY

Harvesting heat from computers One estimates that half of the energy consumed by data centres goes toward cooling computer processors, with most of the removed hot air simply being blown into the atmosphere. Instead, IBM sees that heat being captured & used to warm the air in other areas of the building, to heat water, […]

DEVICES USE SCANVENGED ENERGY FROM THE AIR WE BREATHE TO POWER THEM

Breath & air-powered for non-existent batteries Lithium-air batteries are currently in the works, and IBM predicts that batteries “that use the air we breath to react with energy-dense metal” will result in smaller, lighter rechargeable batteries that last ten times longer than today’s lithium-ion types. Whilst such batteries could be used in everything from cars […]

SOLAR REACTOR MAKES FUEL DIRECTLY FOR IMMEDIATE USE

Breakthrough solar reactor makes fuel from sunlight Because conventional photovoltaic panels produce electricity directly from sunlight, the energy they generate must either be used as it is produced or stored – either in batteries or by using the electricity to produce a fuel that acts as a storage medium for the energy. Now U.S. and […]

Solar Powered traffic lights for Haiti Dec 13 – Amid the confusion and chaos that has shaken the Haitian capital of Port au Prince, shines a beacon of reliability. The city’s solar-powered traffic lights have brought a measure of order to the city. Tara Cleary reports. View video here Solar traffic lights shine on Haiti […]

STREET VENDORS USE SOLAR COOKERS IN MEXICO

Mexico’s street vendors go solar (1:55) Dec 20 – Roadside food vendors in Mexico’s Oaxaca are re-fitting gas-powered food stalls with solar technology. It’s all thanks to efforts of a Swiss solar cooking pioneer who wants to change the world one street cart at a time. Click here below to watch video Mexico’s street vendors go […]

GLOBAL WARMING A PROVEN SCAM SAYS SCIENTIST

The following is a letter to the American Physical Society released to the public by Professor Emiritus of physics Hal Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara. Top US scientist Hal Lewis resigned this week from his post at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He admitted global warming climate change was […]

ENERGY POLICIES-THE GOOD & THE BAD

THE REALITIES & FALICIES OF ENERGY POLICIES by James Tonkowich What will happen to jobs, living standards and families under restrictive energy policies? Pennsylvania is lucky. Even amid this prolonged recession and depressingly high unemployment (9.5% in PA), families and businesses in the Keystone State are still paying just 9.4 cents a kilowatt hour for […]
