      • Lighting > Nature's Lighting - The SunTracker reflects light indoors, but nine times more efficiently than a passive skylight; and it distributes light more evenly over a wider area, without worrying about heat gain.  Designed for retail, manufacturing, warehouse, institutional, and industrial settings. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • EV > Yahoo starts "green" vehicle website - Yahoo! has put up a new site to inform about and rate vehicles that use alternatives to traditional fossil fuels. Includes tools such as calculators, locators, and incentives listings.  They also converted their own shuttle buses to run on biodiesel. (PhysOrg; Nov. 2) (Thanks Sepp Hasslberger)

      • Fuel Efficiency > Hydrogen Injection > LMG Tourer with Hydroxene technology - LMG’s system runs on a mix of both petrol and hydrogen from an on-board electrolysis device, resulting in an effective reduction in fuel consumption of up to 50%. These systems have been available as a bolt on device before, but this is likely the first system that comes with a production car. (Poultan.org; August 15, 2006) (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Ocean Wave > Wave Star Energy - Positioned at right angles to the wave, two rows of hemisphere-shaped floats are lifted upwards in sequence, moving hydraulic cylinder pistons which drive a hydraulic motor connected to a generator. This multi point absorber produces energy 90 percent of the time and maximum power 30 percent of the time. (Thanks John Q. Public)

      • Discovering Magnetism -- DVD - Howard Johnson releases a 20-minute video filmed at Virginia Tech over 20 years ago, and hosted by Dr. Gerhard Beyer, Distinguished Professor and co-researcher. In it, Johnson demonstrates a number of his unique magnetic gates, which accelerate cars on tracks using the little-known ability of magnets to fire bursts of energy like guns. (Cheniere.org; Oct 30)
      • Wave
        href="http://www.worldchanging.com/archives/005178.html">BioPower Systems' Bimimetic Ocean Power Designs
        - BioWAVE, imitates kelp fronds, and BioSTREAM imitates shark or tuna tails. Both designs are meant to oscillate back and forth in ocean currents rather than rotating like a turbine, and they use a proprietary drive train to convert that low-speed high-torque oscillation into high-speed low-torque rotation of a permanent magnet motor. (WorldChanging; Oct. 30)
      • Solar > Independent Energy Systems - Powerwagon XL combines solar PV panels, deep cycle batteries, tracking controller, inverter, and backup generator to make a portable power station that you can tow with your pickup. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Wind
        href="http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/10/1031_051031_wind_farm.html">Plan for "World's Largest Wind Farm" Generates Controversy
        - Massive onshore wind project in Scotland would feature more than 200 wind turbines, each 400 feet (120 meters) tall with a central rotor longer than a jumbo jet, and would generate enough electricity to supply 1.1 million people. Wildlife proponents strongly oppose the plan. (National Geographic; Oct. 31) (Thanks Renewable Energy Access)
      Golden eagles are among the wildlife that could be killed and whose habitat could be damaged by a 200-turbine wind farm planned for the Scottish island of Lewis, critics say..

        > Solar
        Tower >
        Interview: EnviroMission's Solar Tower (recording posted) - Through the patented solar storage capacity of salts, with selective release of the heat to run the turbines at the base of the tower, this will be the first renewable energy source to achieve "primary provider" status, meeting the demand profile, at grid-competitive pricing. (PESN; Oct. 28)
      • Tidal Power > Pulse Generation - Pulse generators cause hydrofoils to oscillate up and down, efficiently taking energy from tidal flows and transmitting it to a generator held above the water, where it is accessible for maintenance. Ideally suited to near-shore, shallow tidal flows, located close to areas of high demand and large scale transmission networks. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Retrofits
        href="http://www.motorspark.com/" rel=nofollow>MotorSpark
        - 1Spark™ provides added storage energy to optimize inductive ignition coil output performance by up to 50%, producing faster, more powerful sparks for quicker and more complete combustion, yielding fuel savings of 5 – 21%. (Thanks John Q. Public)

      • Tidal > HydroVenturi - The Rochester Venturi is a pressure amplifier that accelerates tidal flows to create a pressure drop where the flow is most constricted, pulling air from another location into the primary flow. This secondary flow allows generation of electrical power without moving or electrical parts under water, and with minimal frictional losses over large distances. (Thanks John Q. Public)
