Can't Install Solar Panels On Your Home? Check Out Pear Energy!

This is a sponsored post, which is why it is remaining at the top of the CleanTechnica home page all day today. That said, the fact that this post was sponsored did not alter my take on the company or what I’ve written below. This is one of the most interesting companies I’ve run across in awhile, and it’s also one of the greenest and most socially responsible I’ve run across. Very briefly, Pear Energy … Read More

Efficient Solar Water-Splitting Catalyst Developed

Ultra-thin films of nickel and iron oxides appear to be very effective catalysts for the solar-powered splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen, new research from the University of Oregon has found. Such devices could be used to produce hydrogen fuel from the simple and abundant resources of sunlight and water, but are as of now not cost competitive with other forms of energy production. Improvements to the technology could change this though.   For … Read More

"Clean Coal" In The Near Future? Technology Reaches New Milestone

A commercially viable way to burn coal while capturing the CO2 emissions is moving closer to reality. Researchers at the American Chemical Society (ACS) recently reported the achievement of a new milestone on the path to commercial use, a successful 200-hour test on a sub-pilot scale version of the technology while using two of the most highly polluting forms of coal. The test was recently detailed in a study published in the ACS journal Energy & … Read More

U.S. Army Tests New Energy-Saving Tents With Solar Power, Too

Here’s one indication of just how quickly Army is moving toward an energy-efficient future: last year we got all excited about an energy-saving base camp demonstration project at Fort Devens in Massachusetts, and now our friends over at the DoD Energy Blog have just tipped us to another pair of energy projects at Fort Benning, Georgia and Fort Bliss, Texas. Together, the two projects are designed to push the Army energy efficiency envelope by comparing … Read More

BMW i3 To Have Bells & Whistles, But That's Not The Big Story (imho)

Reposted from EV Obsession: The BMW i3 is set to roll out this year, which I think has many of us EV lovers a little giddy. BMW’s i series looks hot, different, sharp. It looks like it was made to fit with an era of iPhones and iPads. AOL’s AutoblogGreen recently got to chat with the head of product development for BMW, Board Member Herbert Diess. Most of what AutoBlog found out was not that surprising … Read More

India's Solar Canals

Reposted from Solar Love: I recently ran across this awesome image from Greenpeace International over on Google+: Luckily, the Google+ share also included a link to an Indian business site that had more details. The Hindu Business Line writes: Close on heels of commencing use of wastelands in northern districts and rooftops in towns and cities, Gujarat is set to potentially use the existing 19,000 km-long network of Narmada canals across the State for setting … Read More
