      • Ocean Wave > Rothman Energy Systems - The Wave Energy Machine is inexpensive, flexible and scalable, based on a truss anchored to a pivot point on shore, with a float device attached over water. The wave motion provides a "teeter-totter" effect which is translated into useable mechanical energy through a connector rod attached to a cam assembly.
      • Engines / Thermal Electric > New engine to slash 50% off emissions - Epicam's dexpressor concept would harvest wasted car exhaust heat to drive a pump-like rotor, improving engine efficiency, emissions and fuel economy up to 50 per cent. A heat exchange coil around the exhaust manifold of the engine super-heats water, building up pressure that is used to turn rotors that feed into the crankshaft of the engine.

        title=http://www.technologyreview.com/Nanotech/18265/ href="http://www.technologyreview.com/Nanotech/18265/" rel=nofollow>New antireflection coatings for solar cells and LEDs
        - Researchers have developed a new type of nanostructured coating that can virtually eliminate reflections of a wide range of wavelengths to 10 times less than current coatings. It would increase solar cell light absorption by a few percentage points and a 40 percent improvement could be seen in LEDs. (MIT Technology Review; Mar. 06, 2007) (See Slashdot discussion)

        href="http://www.physorg.com/news92419771.html" rel=nofollow>Sound waves turn natural gas into liquid
        - Worldwide, 100 billion cubic meters of natural gas is wasted every year. Swift LNG aims to turn that gas into a usable liquid fuel with a thermoacoustic natural gas liquefaction technology. It converts heat into sound waves and then into cold refrigeration using highly pressurized helium contained in a network of welded steel pipes. Commercial readiness is expected by 2010.

      • Solar > Cheap Nano Solar Cells - Researchers have demonstrated improved efficiency in solar cells made from low-cost chemicals used in paints. They added single-walled carbon nanotubes to a film made of titanium-dioxide nanoparticles, doubling the efficiency of converting ultraviolet light into electrons when compared with nanoparticles alone.

        - Northern Power's new power converters are grid-friendly, effectively managing the variable power output of wind turbines, capturing partial power and lower wind speeds, with minimum disruption to the grid system. They use 40% fewer power transistors and 50% fewer capacitors while yielding higher performance and reliability. (Renewable Energy Access; Mar. 5, 2007)

        - The government is about to start opening up the process of reviewing patents to the modern font of wisdom: the Internet.  The pilot project will not only post patent applications on the Web and invite comments but also use a community rating system designed to push the most respected comments to the top of the file, for serious consideration by the agency's examiners.

        Milkovic-Berrett Secondary Oscillator Generator
        - Brian Berrett of Lehi, Utah has built a two-wheel device that uses the two-stage mechanical oscillator principle set forth by Veljko Mikovic. His crude prototype demonstrates more electrical output derived from the secondary wheel than the electrical input required to maintain the primary pendulum oscillation on the first wheel.

      • Solar Heating / AC
        href="http://www.starnewsgroup.com.au/story/36817" rel=nofollow>Solar Air Heating and Cooling
        - The Sun Lizard heats the air, and then uses a fan to pump that air around the building to keep people warm in winter. In summer the fan is used as a heat extractor, pulling rising heat from the building and venting it outside. It retails at $2500 but mass production may reduce the cost.

      • Global Warming > CO2 output from shipping twice as much as airlines - Separate studies suggest that maritime carbon dioxide emissions are not only higher than previously thought, but could rise by as much as 75% in the next 15 to 20 years if world trade continues to grow and no action is taken.

        Steven E. Jones Solar Funnel for Cooking - Prof. Jones (of 9/11-demolition fame) presents a method for building a cooking device that is safe and low-cost, easy to make, yet very effective in capturing the sun's energy for cooking and for pasteurizing water. Requires cardboard, tin foil, black paint, and a mason jar. (PESWiki; Mar. 3)
      • Transmissions / Hybrid Vehicles > Van Cor Transmission - Symbiotic Drive runs both the gas engine and an electric motor at the same time in varied proportions to produce continuously variable output, an energy efficient process called “torque amplification”. The two power sources are combined through a planetary system in which the electric motor can become an output generator when the gas engine is idling or when the vehicle is decelerating.
