Investigating ‘common sense technologies’: GPS tracking systems

The story here is: efficiency brings together financial and environmental arguments. Economy in general – not being wasteful – is common sense. So what is a ‘common sense technology’?. Everyone understands that developed economies are powered by business. In business the priority is improving margins and cutting costs. This has been the case for my entire lifetime but the economic […]

Tech Notes: Wind Energy Updates

A wind farm has been designed in which the array of machines has been modelled on the fluid dynamics which surround schooling fish. According to BBC reports, aeronautical engineer Robert Whittlesey of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) said, "The fish aim to align themselves to optimise their forward propulsion," and he added that this tendency can be adapted in a turbine array to maximise energy extraction.
Financing Solar Power in the Developing World

Financing Solar Power in the Developing World

One of the most unique aspects of renewable energy – its distributed nature – makes it a perfect solution for areas of the world where the general population does not have access to electricity. There are currently a host of solar projects bringing light and power to these more removed regions of the world, a handful of which were recently highlighted at Intersolar in San Francisco, in mid-July.
Wind-solar Hybrid System Set for Release This Month

Wind-solar Hybrid System Set for Release This Month

One of the biggest names in distributed wind has teamed up with a solar technology company to develop and offer a wind-solar hybrid system that will be available as early as this month.
Sage Grouse Removed as Threat to Biggest Wind Farm in U.S.

Sage Grouse Removed as Threat to Biggest Wind Farm in U.S.

Billionaire Phil Anschutz’s plans to build a $5 billion wind farm in southeast Wyoming will no longer be stymied by the mating dance of the greater sage grouse. The U.S. Interior Department’s decision Tuesday not to designate the bird as an endangered species means Anschutz’s Power Company of Wyoming LLC may now proceed with the Chokecherry and Sierra Madre wind farm. It also opens the door to oil and natural gas development in the region.
On Track for Maximum Solar Production

On Track for Maximum Solar Production

In their efforts to deliver solar energy systems capable of maximum power production, designers consider numerous factors to ensure they install effective, reliable systems capable of optimum performance in any environment. In New England, for example, solar technologies have to operate in challenging climate conditions that range from harsh, freezing winters with frequent snowstorms to high-temperature summers. Other primary considerations In solar installations include site conditions, structural issues, panel-mounting options, and project lifecycle costs.
