      • Wind > Lots of Wind in Antarctica; Now There Are Turbines - Eight wind turbines are en route to the South Pole where they will help provide power for Belgium's Princess Elisabeth Antarctic research station. Using wind turbines marks a major change in Antarctic stations, which have mainly relied on diesel generators because wind turbines were thought not to be sturdy enough for the harsh environment. (TreeHugger; Jan. 31)
      • Global Warming > Climate Change: "Many, Many Smoking Guns" - When the UN-organized Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) presents its projections for global warming and future climate changes tomorrow, the report's hallmark will be a far greater level of certainty and precision than what was expressed in the last IPCC report, issued in 2001. (MIT Technology Review; Feb. 1)

      • Solar > Concentrated
        href="http://www.pacificsolartech.com/" rel=nofollow>Pacific SolarTech
        - Photovoltaic modules for utility-scale, remote and grid-connected systems use lenses to concentrate sunlight 10x onto small solar cells (1/10 of the lens size). This reduces the requisite amount of silicone, making solar power affordable. Dome-shaped lenses can catch diffuse light and redirect it to the solar cells with a fixed, non-tracking mount for rooftop applications. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Ethanol
        href="http://www.renewableenergyaccess.com/rea/news/story?id=47272&src=FreeEnergyNews.com">Cellulosic Ethanol Company to Use Woodwaste and Other Biomass
        - New technologies are required to produce ethanol from biomass cellulose rather than from the fermentation of valuable grains. Lignol Energy Corporation has acquired and modified a solvent-based pre-treatment technology originally developed by a subsidiary of General Electric (GE). (Renewable Energy Access; Jan. 30)

        href="http://peswiki.com/index.php/Directory:Tectane_Corporation" rel=nofollow>Tectane: H20 Injector and Aquahol
        - The H2O Injector is presented as an inexpensive add-on device for car engines which reduces emissions and increases mileage up to 40%, and can allow cars to run on 75-octane gasoline or ethanol fuels. Aquahol is the separate injection of 80% ethanol and 20% water.  Drawbacks?  (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Engines > Agile Turbine - The ICR 225 (pdf) multi fuel gas turbine vehicle engine is light weight, reliable, has low emissions, gives high efficiency at high power and even higher efficiency at low power when the vehicle is in traffic. Efficiency is achieved using an intercooler and ceramic turbine wheel turbocharger. It can use mechanical output or an electric drive system. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Sustainability, Energy Independence and Agricultural Policy - Article cites lack of vision by U.S. politicians.  Suggests a self-sustaining energy system which replaces petroleum-based fuels in the short term, and all fossil fuels eventually. Productivity high enough to eliminate the displaced fuels without major land-use or other changes. A shift toward a neutral carbon and GHG balance, or even a negative net balance.

      • Fuel Efficiency > Hydrogen Injection > Water4Gas - Simplified device uses a little electricity out of your car's battery to separate water into Hydrogen + Oxygen gas that is 3 times more potent than gasoline. It is added to the air intake of your car engine to improve gas mileage up to 37% by improving combustion. Unique spiraled electrodes produce more gas for less electricity than flat plates. (Thanks John Q. Public)

        - IceCycle captures and stores inexpensive off-peak cooling energy and utilizes it to provide air conditioning during expensive on-peak periods. IceCycle works with the smaller air conditioning systems in homes and businesses and reduces air conditioning operating costs up to 20%. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Solar > Thin Film > DrexelSolar - Drexel standing seam metal roof systems combine a structural roofing product with the solar electric capabilities of thin film photovoltaics. The energy savings of a cool metal roof using reflective pigments are combined with the energy generation of a PV laminate to reduce a homeowner’s energy bill. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Biodiesel from Algae Oil > Making Biofuel from Pond Scum - Algae could produce 100 times more biodiesel per hectare than either canola or soy. It can grow on desert land and doesn't require much rain. Solix Biofuels has a strain that produces up to 50 percent of its body weight in fat and over half a batch can be harvested for oil production every day.
