      • Solar > Paint

        Plan to turn rooftops, walls and windows into cheap solar cells - Cheaper solar cells – roughly one-tenth the cost of current day prices – could be available within three to five years thanks to a manufacturing procedure that uses nanoparticle ‘inks’ to print them like newspaper or to spray-paint them onto the sides of buildings or rooftops. Even windows could become solar cells thanks to the semi-transparent inks. (GizMag; August 25, 2009)

        Making Algae Photobioreactors at Home - A free download with step-by-step instructions on making an algae test bioreactor. You can easily test 10 different algal strains, or 10 different variables at the same time. "When I went looking for a algae photobioreactor for my own studies, I saw similar PBR’s selling for $10,000 -$20,000 USD or more. So I built one."

      • Biomass

        Wood Gas Generator: Run Your Truck on Firewood - The wood gassification process, called pyrolysis, is accomplished by cooking the wood under low oxygen conditions in a wood-gas generator and collecting the vapors, which are then directed to the vehicle's (ideally a truck or SUV with room to carry the gas generator) carburetor to be burned instead of gasoline.

      • Biofuels

        Ignition for Colombian yucca car - After a three-year slog Colombian scientists have revved up a car that runs on yucca-derived ethanol, spurring hopes that the Latin American staple could be transformed into an abundant fuel. Cars can be adopted to use the fuel with a 120 dollar kit. (EarthAlternate; Aug. 22, 2009)

        US Navy Tries To Turn Seawater Into Jet Fuel - Navy chemists have processed seawater into unsaturated short-chain hydrocarbons that with further refining could be made into kerosene-based jet fuel. The process involves extracting carbon dioxide dissolved in the water and combining it with hydrogen to make a hydrocarbon fuel. (New Scientist; Aug. 18, 2009)
      • Lightning

        "Gigantic Jets" Blast Electricity Into the Ionosphere - These lightning bolts that reach from cloud tops upward into the ionosphere, as high as 90 kilometers, have been measured by researches at Duke University to carry as much energy skyward as ordinary lightning strikes carry to the ground.

        Rocket Stoves Rock - I went camping last night and was very impressed with the Grover Rocket Stove my dad brought along. While our traditional camping methods consumed copious amounts of firewood, the Rocket Stove consumed just a small amount to produce focused heat more reliably and with very little smoke.

        href="http://peswiki.com/index.php/Article:Ronn_Motors'_Scorpion_using_Hydrogen_Booster">Ronn Motors >

        The Scorpion: Ronn Motor Company Hydrogen-Exotic - Here is the first production vehicle that will use the hydrogen boost technology in which an on-board electrolysis unit produces Brown’s gas which is then ducted into the air intake to effect a more efficient burn of the fuel, achieving 40 mpg in a muscle car. They call it the "H2GO hydrogen injection system". (Gas2; Aug. 18, 2009)
      • Evaporative Cooling > Coolerado

        Coolerado Wins UC Davis Air Conditioning Prize - The Coolerado system uses a form of indirect evaporative cooling that relies on the Maisotsenko Cycle in which outside air is humidified and then de-humidified through a series of plastic plates. Expecting to ship later this year, the unit could cut the power consumed by air conditioners on top of big box retailers by over 50 percent. (Green Tech Media; August 17, 2009)

        Korean electric vehicle solution - Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed an electric transport system where the vehicles get their power needs from cables underneath the surface of the road via non-contact magnetic charging. (GizMag; August 20, 2009)
      • Hydrogen

        First Hydrogen Power Plant in Italy - The world’s first hydrogen power plant is being constructed by ENEL, which has 50,000,000 power and gas customers. The H is being procured from Polimeri Europa’s petrochemical plant, which has an ethylene-cracking process, and will be brought to the establishment by especially built pipelines, providing power to 20,000 households.
