      • Conservation / Magnet Motors > Magswitch - Switchable on/off permanent magnets control magnetic fields without the electric power required by electromagnets. It affords the ability to manufacture a low cost, switchable permanent magnetic device, replacing existing electromagnets to develop ecological sustainability and improved performance. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • EV > Electric Scooters > China's Cyclists Take Charge - The electric bike has rapidly become one of the most popular modes of transportation in China in the past few years. They will outsell cars by three times this year, due to ease of use, low sale price and high savings. Spectrum claims electric bikes carry a single driver with 15 to 20 times greater efficiency than that of an average small car. (AutoblogGreen; May 30, 2007) (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Vehicles > SuperLIGHT-CAR - 38 organizations from 9 european countries work together to bring lightweight automotive technologies to high volume car production. SuperLIGHT-CAR has a multi-material philosophy, striving to use the best material and manufacturing processes in terms of weight and cost minimization, while fulfilling automotive requirements such as stiffness, crash performance, fatigue and corrosion resistance. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • BioFuel > Tel Aviv University Makes Magic Mushroom for Biofuel - A Tel Aviv University scientist, Amir Sharon, may have discovered an alternative to food crops for biofuel.  His team has genetically engineered a mushroom to be less sensitive to external conditions and environmental stresses; and to be more sustainable in culture during fermentation, and have both enhanced growth rate and spore production.

      • Storage / Hydrogen > Asemblon - Hydrnol acts as a liquid storage battery, storing low-cost hydrogen produced from excess power at standard temperatures and pressures, converting it back to hydrogen to meet peak power demands. It can can fuel transportation needs for diesel and propane boosting, hydrogen fuel cells and modified internal combustion engines. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Air Conditioning > Central Coating Company - Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation has an R factor of 6.25 per inch. The light colored exterior coating uses "cool roofing" technology, reducing air conditioning energy costs and "heat island" air pollution. Roof surface temperatures can be reduced up to 70 degrees F and electric bills can be reduced by up to 50%. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Retrofits > Visteon Corp - Coil-On-Plug Ignition System mounts directly to the spark plug, matching the energy delivered by the coil to the requirements of the engine, based on engine speed and load. It provides improved fuel economy, lower emissions and reduced spark plug fouling compared to conventional ignition systems. (Thanks John Q. Public)

        Thermal Electric > Acoustic Stove, Fridge, Generator Could Aid Third World
        - The "Stove for Cooking, Refrigeration and Electricity," or SCORE, could help improve the health and quality of life for the two billion or so people in the world who cook over open fires. The SCORE thermoacoustics technology promoted by a multi-institutional project converts heated gas into sound waves which can be used to cook, cool, and/or generate electricity. (PESWiki; May 28)
      • Thermal Electric > CUBE Technology - The Personal Power Generator combines fuel and air inside a ceramic Micro-Furnace that produces a flameless heat source using any fuel such as Hydrogen, Propane, Butane, or Alcohols. An efficient thermoelectric module then converts this fuel energy into electricity with no moving parts to wear out or maintain. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Do Trees Make It OK to Drive an SUV? - If you plant some trees, is it OK to drive an Escalade? The question isn't as silly as it sounds. People worried about global warming increasingly are trying to "offset" the carbon dioxide they spew into the atmosphere when they drive, fly or flick on a light. (AP / PhysOrg; May 28)

      • Alternative Fuels > LPP Combustion - Technology for lean, premixed, prevaporized combustion of liquid fuels, to burn cleanly in natural gas-fired power turbines and other combustion devices. It converts liquid fuels such as kerosene, #2 fuel oil, coal liquids, ethanol, and biodiesel, into a synthetic natural gas, routed through the normal, natural gas piping and combustion system while producing low emissions similar to natural gas. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • EV > Roadster > Tesla Electric Sports Car Plugged In - The California Air Resources Board and California Energy Commission has given Tesla Motors $561,000 for the development of a 16 kw public commercial charging station as part of almost $25 million worth of grants for the Alternative Fuel Incentive Program. (TreeHugger; May 27)

        Waste to Energy / Electrolysis > Welcome back, Xogen Technologies Inc.
        - Canadian company is developing a Brown's-gas-like technology for the treatment of wastewater, producing energy in the process.  Approach would vastly reduce treatment plant footprint and eliminate production of biosolids.  Patented electrolysis process allegedly splits water into H/O gas with less electrical current than is predicted by standard laws. (PESWiki; May 9)
      • Ethanol > Indy 500 Goes From Gas to Green (video) - The Indy 500 is hardly the place you'd expect to find anything "green," outside the starting flag. The cars in the race average 220 mph and 2-3 miles per gallon. But this year, they'll be burning rubber on ethanol. (CBS News; May 25)

      • Fuel Efficiency > Retrofits > TAU Drag Reduction Device Cuts Fuel Costs - Tel Aviv University has developed a drag reduction device that can be fitted to the back of a truck or its trailer to increase fuel economy by as much as 10%, through suction and pulsed blowing of airflow. The device will cost $1000 to $2000 per unit, potentially saving the US trucking industry $400 million per year. (Tel Aviv University; May 20, 2007) (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Electric Vehicles > Hybrid Technologies EV video - Hybrid Technologies is offering the six-minute segment on the company's electric vehicles from the History Channel Modern Marvels "It came from Space" episode. It gives a quick history about lithium battery development at NASA and includes a view into the company's conversion process and some of their high speed long range electric vehicles.

        Electromagnetic > Self-running Bedini motor - Long-time participant in various Bedini motor replication projects, Rick Friedrich posts videos, photos, diagrams, and explanation of his set-up, which he says measures a net gain in energy "from nature". (PESWiki; May 15)
      • Water / Plasma > Definitive Energy - AquaClean™ processes contaminated water with an electric arc (plasma) to produce clean, potable water which spontaneously creates a high energy, non-polluting, sustainable fuel (AquaLene®). The fuel is claimed to produce 3x more energy than is required to maintain the arc by powering a generator in a closed-loop process. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Solar / Air Conditioning > ClimateWell  - Highly efficient solar air conditioning equipment with the ability to store energy and convert hot water to cooling and heating, delivering cooling not only when the sun shines but around the clock. Triple phase absorption technology provides the capability of storing thermal energy to deliver a continuous cooling output based on a fluctuating energy input, such as solar heat. (Thanks John Q. Public)
