Google, Dandelion Geothermal, and the Thermal Energy IoT

Validation comes in many different ways. Presently, New York State, NYSERDA, and now Dandelion are working toward implementation of geothermal heating and cooling. Ontarians are embarking on a similar path. Geothermal is needed infrastructure, just like the electric grid or city water mains. This has to happen, and now, it’s underway.
Flexible Electronics and Printable Solar Cells

Flexible Electronics and Printable Solar Cells

We usually think of solar in terms of panels, flat sheets of polysilicon that are connected to the electric grid, and laid on top of homes or businesses at the cost of thousands of dollars. As a result, financing like that of 1 Block off the Grid get big write-ups. But that’s not how it’s going to go. Solar power […]

Ten Clean Energy Stocks For 2015: Riding The Storm

The first half of 2015 saw a mild advance in the broad market, but concerns about rising interest rates and the ongoing Greek debt drama sent income stocks, clean energy, and most non-US currencies down decisively.  My Ten Clean Energy Stocks for 2015 model portfolio has heavy exposure to not only clean energy, but income stocks (6 out of 10) and foreign stocks (4 out of 10.)  Despite this the stormy market for all three, the portfolio delivered admirably.
