Carbon war room or hydrogen gold rush

Carbon war room or hydrogen gold rush

When I first began writing about energy on my personal blog, four years ago, I called for a War Against Oil. There are still people who look at it that way. Richard Branson (right) for one. His Carbon War Room is a collection of activists, futurists and financiers dedicated, it says, to the fight against atmospheric carbon dioxide and global […]
The Smart grid Needs Global Standards

The Smart grid Needs Global Standards

Back when I first refocused my personal blog on “The War Against Oil” there was a lot of talk about the “smart grid.” Trouble is we aren’t sure what we mean by it. It keeps changing. It’s a broad term. It can be simple of complex. Al Gore’s term for the smart grid was the “Enernet,” for energy network. The […]

Many of our most important solar technologies are a direct outgrowth of the computer revolution, says Dana Blankenhorn. However, emulating plants is an option for solar photovoltaics, once we understand how to capture light the way that plants do, down to the nano level.

Once we thought the phone network was a "natural" monopoly. But history proved otherwise. Look beyond the electric grid's "natural monopoly" and look backwards at telecom deregulation and the internet to see how big the Smart Grid can be for America.

Why Every Solar Company Should Have a Blog

Why Every Solar Company Should Have a Blog

I cringe whenever I see a corporate site without a blog.  It bothers me no matter the industry, but with a sector as mysterious and misunderstood as solar energy, not having a blog seems unconscionable.  As a solar copywriter, I’m probably more sensitive to such things.  After all, a firm without a blog represents a potential client. But even before my copywriting […]
What Comes to Mind When You Think of Geothermal Power?

What Comes to Mind When You Think of Geothermal Power?

Do you think baseload? Or do you just think of central heating? I am genuinely a fan of debunking myths, superstitions and suppositions. Bob Cain of Lumberport wrote an article entitled “Nothing can replace coal for baseload power needs,” and he does a good job of explaining the problems of nuclear energy. He is also very informed about the idiosyncrasies of the […]
