Turn E-waste into Clean Electricity
Created 5/19/2010 8:51:46 AM 
You know how all that plastic crap is piling up in our landfills and polluting our oceans? When you think of recycling electronics, no doubt you imagine the old PC or mobile phone being disassembled, and it’s metal and plastic parts melted down to be repurposed. But for some people, it means reusing the parts to generate energy.

A new but still unseen technology that its creator claims can be an off-grid source of cheap, clean electricity in a device the size of a loaf of bread is about to get its close-up. The formal debut of the much-hyped fuel cell, known as the Bloom Box, takes place today at eBay's headquarters in California.
A Great Way to Harness Sea Power
Created 11/23/2009 8:18:15 AM 
The global ocean energy resources are huge, and ocean energy technology clearly represents the largest untapped business potential within the renewable sector. Despite the technological limitations of existing solutions, the market for ocean energy equipment is expected to take off rapidly, and investments in the sector are growing constantly.It has been estimated that ocean wave energy has the potential to contribute 10% of the entire need for electricity globally, with an investment cost of EUR 820 billion.
Pavegen: Steps Into Energy
Created 11/13/2009 7:52:50 AM 
Paving stones which generate electricity simply by being stepped on could soon be powering their way on the the high street. The green slabs, which contain a light that gets brighter according to how much energy is stored, are designed to ‘flex’ less that 5mm when walked over. Although this movement cannot be detected by pedestrians, it is enough to generate electricity.
Inexpensive Wind Turbine for your Home
Created 9/30/2009 8:43:01 AM 
Wind turbine conjures up the image of three-rotor design on hill-tops and, increasingly, out to sea. These machines work well in high wind speeds and relatively smooth airflows: the technology matches the conditions where they are sited. The remoteness of these locations has allowed ever larger turbines to be built, generating significant amounts of electricity.
Recycling Leftovers to Make Electricity

Two million of tourists visit the U.S. Virgin Islands every year leaving up to 146,000 tons of garbage behind. The territory has faced EPA fines for excess solid waste and has almost run out of places to put all that stuff. But the energy potential of all those leftovers might be even greater. And here’s a company that wants to use it.
Save Money with self-recharging Street Lights

According to knowledgeable people who delved into streetlight details, public lighting uses up to 12 percent of the fossil fuel produced in the world. In Fairbanks, Alaska, where it’s dark half the year, street lighting accounts for 60 percent of the city’s electricity bill!
Clean Energy from City Streets
Created 5/15/2009 7:34:54 AM 
If we take a look at all of the people walking around in the streets of urban centers today, and we think about all of that expended energy, the possibility of harnessing it is exciting. There could be an interface between our feet and the surface we’re stepping on. It could absorb that movement to generate electricity for the overhead lights and to heat up the coffee.
Tap your Tap Water for Electricity

Every household in the industrialized world used tap water. As is part of indoor plumbing, which became available in the late 19th century and common in the mid-20th century. The minimum water pressure that must be supplied is approximately 1bar, (enough pressure to supply water up to 10 meters height from the stop tap in the street, The minimum flow rate is 10 liters per minute.
Whiskey Power: A new Green Alternative
Created 2/4/2009 8:28:37 AM 
Plans to transform distillery by-products into renewable electricity, usable heat and organic soil conditioners was proposed by a couple ok UK companies. Following approval and order-placement, the plant would take 18 to 24 months to construct. This would be the first project to use draft and pot ale as a biomass fuel instead of wood.
