        > Backyard wind
        turbines turn energy consumers into suppliers
        - Feasibility is increasing.  SkyStream price tag is about $9,000 and lasts for around 100,000 kilowatt-hours (20 year life), which results in 9 cents per kilowatt-hour. If the market takes off, that price will drop. (IEEE Spectrum; Oct. 2006) (See Slashdot discussion)
      • Fuel Cells > GM Fuel Cell Vehicle Prototype (video) - A glimpse into the future?  With no engine compartment, everything is built into the chassis.  At ~US $1 million, the H-powered car is 10 to 20 years away from being commercially feasible. (YouTube) (Thanks Joel Garbon)

        href="http://www.engineerlive.com/headlines/16400/hydrogenpowered-production-car.thtml">BMW Presents hydrogen-powered production car
        - The BMW Hydrogen 7 is powered by a 191kW (260HP) twelve-cylinder engine that accelerates it from 0-100 km/h in 9.5 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 230 km/h (143 mph). Car can also run on premium gasoline. (Engineer Live; Oct. 2) (Leonard DiAsio)
      • Fuel Cells > Less expensive fuel cell may be possible - Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have developed a new class of hydrogen fuel-cell catalysts that exhibit promising activity and stability. The catalysts are made of low-cost nonprecious metals entrapped in something called a heteroatomic-polymer structure, instead of platinum materials typically used in fuel cells. (PhysOrg; Oct. 3)

        href="http://www.treehugger.com/files/2006/10/miniwind_turbin.php">New Wind Turbine Harnesses Aerodynamics of Buildings
        - Aero Vironment, which engineered GM's EV-1, has unveiled a compact wind turbine that sits on the parapets of a building rather than the roof, catching the wind as it travels up the side of a building, resulting in as much as 30% increase in energy production. It requires only a 7 mph (3.1 m/s) breeze to start up, and produces roughly 55kWh per month per unit. (TreeHugger; Oct. 2)
      • Electric Vehicles > Venturi Eclectic - Urban 3-seater is the world's first energy-autonomous production vehicle. Eclectic takes advantage of moments of immobilisation to store solar or wind energy in its NiMH batteries. It offers a range up to 50 km at a speed of 50 km/hr and can also be recharged from the grid in 5 hours. Production of 20 vehicles has commenced and 200 will be launched in June 2007. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Electric Vehicles > Venturi Astrolab - 2-seater tandem electro-solar vehicle uses photovoltaic cells covered by a film of nano-prisms concentrating solar energy to recharge NiMH batteries. It has a range of 110 km and a top speed of 120 km/hr. Solar recharging provides a daily range of 18 km or it can be recharged from the grid in 5 hours. First delivery is scheduled for January 2008. (Thanks John Q. Public)

        gas turbine produces 100 watts
        - Researchers at the ETH Chair for Power Electronics have developed an an electrical generator with a world-record rotation speed. Powered by a gas turbine with an efficiency of close to 95 percent, these ultra small gas turbines could replace conventional batteries as a mobile power source.

        href="http://www.msc-power.co.in/msc1/index.asp" rel=nofollow>MSC Power
        - The MSC Solar Pyramid Power Plant has continuous 24/7 generation of electricity by hot air rising through a wind turbine, by a gas turbine and from solar panels. Glass walls transmit solar energy heating a solar absorber, causing warm air to rise through the turbine. An underground water reservoir is used to store daytime solar heat energy, which is extracted for night time power generation. (Thanks John Q. Public)

        href="http://deseretnews.com/dn/view/1,1249,650195226,00.html">Make water out of air?
        - Utah-based company has turned their condensing technology focus to emergency response applications.  One gallon of diesel powers the production of 10 gallons of water.  (Deseret News; Oct. 1, 2006)
      • William Stanley first used AC lighting in 1886, not Tesla in 1890 - Tesla was not the first to build an A.C. power plant. William Stanley had lit up the main street of Great Barrington, Mass. a year before Tesla designed his Niagara Falls station. Tesla knew about Stanley and may have gotten the idea for alternating current from him. (Prof. Euginii Katz) (Thanks Keelynet)
      • Lighting
        href="http://www.treehugger.com/files/2006/09/dotit_leds_to_g.php">DOT-it LED light
        - LED lights take so little juice that they can run on next to nothing. A $10 stick-on light from Sylvania goes anywhere, and lasts up to 100 hours on three AAA batteries. Just press on it and it goes. With a little more thought about sustainability in the design process, affordable and green LED lighting could go mainstream very soon. (TreeHugger; Sept. 29)

        - 4-wheel bikes that drives like a car is easier to pedal than a regular bike. The Rhoades Car can be geared down much lower than a regular bike while climbing hills. On 2 seat models, either person can pedal independently of the other person! It's legal to drive on any road that an ordinary bike travels. (Thanks John Q. Public)
