Happy anniversary, .Earth — and thanks for all you do. The .Earth TLD offers environmental activists, NGOs, geospatial companies, and many others a platform to enhance their […]
Cleantech businesses may offer innovative sustainable energy products and services but also fail to reach their target audiences with their marketing. Cleantech marketing needs to embrace digital media wisely.
Fabric that generates electricity. Sounds like something from The Jetsons, right? Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology have brought us a step closer to the future. They’re developing a fabric that can harvest energy from both sunshine and motion.
Camelina oilseed is part of a new biofuel industry initiative that has significant potential for an eco-business.
Engineers at the Oregon State University College of Engineering have developed a computer program that is able to accurately predict how much electricity a small scale hydro power installation will produce now and in the future, even if local data is unavailable.
Originally published on CleanTechnica. The initial Cleantech Revolution Tour conference that we held in Berlin was a lot of fun, and the presentations were packed with interesting facts, figures, charts, and jokes. We had a blast, and there’s no way to share all of the conversations, connections, and laughs (which is why I encourage you to […]
John Hingley of MIlton Keynes, England, has developed a portable solar panel system he says is a self contained microgrid for remote areas or places hit by natural disaster.
Via CleanTechnica: We’ve got several notable updates regarding our first cleantech conference — CLEANTECH REVOLUTION TOUR → BERLIN — to share with you. First of all, we now have: → a Facebook event page (share with friends!) → an event webpage (which we’ll continuously update) → an eventbrite page for registering (again, register, and share with friends!) … and a confirmed […]
A start-up in Australia is experimenting with pre-fabricated solar systems that can be transported to remote locations and set up in a matter of days or even hours. Later, they can be taken down and moved to a new location.
The Business of Local Energy Symposium will be held March 4 in San Jose, CA. Meet entrepreneurs from fields like energy efficiency, micro-grids, and renewables
Want to green your Fresh-Mex or burrito place? There are some sustainable strategies unique to both restaurants in general and those which serve cuisine like burritos, tacos, and nachos. Here are the top 10: Organi-fy your staples. Beans and rice are a staple on most Mexican/Fresh-Mex menus, and represent the grand majority of the calories […]
Originally published on Gas2. By Christopher DeMorro Some of the world’s greatest minds are hard at work developing an affordable, long-range electric car for the masses, but the technology needed to do so may already be out there. The Luka EV project at HackaDay is utilizing readily-available open-source information in an attempt to build a […]
There has never been a better time to buy a green car, and whether you’re choosing an environmentally friendly vehicle because of lower fuel costs or lower emissions, chances are there is a an alt-fuel or fuel-efficient green car to meet your needs. Whatever type of green car you choose, don’t forget to do your research […]
One way for small businesses to green up their operations can be through choosing a renewable energy source, whether it’s a rooftop solar installation or the purchase of clean energy through their local utility. However, a much lower hanging fruit for small business sustainability initiatives, and one that can have a big positive effect on […]
Compared to some of the other renewable energy technologies, such as solar and wind, wave energy is still in its infancy (OK, maybe its early adolescence), and so far, wave energy advances haven’t yet come close to producing a cost-effective solution for electricity production. And yet because some 50% of the US population lives within […]
In rural areas of Senegal, getting water for irrigating crops often comes with a hefty price tag, not only in terms of the cost to buy the fuel for it (about $1 per day for an average gas-powered irrigation pump), and the time necessary to procure it from the nearest gas station (which could be […]
We live in an era where sources of non-renewable energy are fast depleting. However, thanks to the evolving technology, renewable energy sources are being tapped as potent alternatives that will, hopefully, continue to support the demand for energy in the future. Meanwhile, it is up to us to conserve power for our own benefit in […]
