WCCD — World Council on City Data

This new international standard was developed using the framework of the Global City Indicators Facility that has been extensively tested by more than 250 cities worldwide. This is a demand-led standard, driven and created by cities, for cities. ISO 37120 defines and establishes definitions and methodologies for a set of indicators to steer and measure the performance of city services and quality of life. The standard includes a comprehensive set of 100 indicators — of which 46 are core — that measures a city's social, economic, and environmental performance. מכון התקנים הישראלי.

Inspiring Story Continues (Video) Image credit: Solarcentury When I wrote about an entire town's plan to go solar, and its incredibly ambitious short-term goal of generating 30% of its electricity from renewables by 2015, the response was enthusiastic.

Britain's First Solar Powered Town? Inspiring Story Continues (Video)

But what's so special about Wadebridge? How are they going about making this happen? How can other communties follow suit? A series of short videos aims to answer these questions and more. As mentioned in my previous post on Wadebridge's solar initiative, these efforts have been made possible by the Government's generous feed-in tariffs for solar and other renewables. But it would be wrong to suggest that this is all about subsidies and economics. With the UK government putting its weight behind legally-binding 50% CO2 cuts by 2025, I hope that this will be the first such story among many. Natural Resources Canada.

בידיים – קח את הקיימות בידיים, עשה זאת בעצמך

לפני שנה וחצי התאספנו שישה תושבי שכונת הדר בחיפה, חובבי פרמקלצ'ר ואוהדים מושבעים של האתר, במטרה להקים יחד גינה קהילתית. בשבילי זו הייתה הזדמנות מעולה לנסות חלק מהמדריכים שקראתי כאן בשטח. התחלנו הכי פשוט – עם רפסודות מהרחוב וכלי עבודה שהבאנו מהבית, וככה בערך זה נראה ברוכים הבאים לפרויקט habitat בחודש שעבר הגעתי חזרה לציוויליזציה אחרי סמינר של עשרה ימים שאני וחבר שלי דין הולדנו בשיחה לפני כחצי שנה. הגיעה השעה לחקלאות בת קיימא.

Street Charge solar charging stations for smartphones make New York debut. Telecomms provider AT&T has partnered with portable solar power systems developer Goal Zero and Brooklyn design studio Pensa for the roll out of Street Charge public solar charging stations in New York.

Each station is topped by PV panels that charge up a powerful internal battery to provide smartphone and tablet users with a free juice up. The first units debuted at Riverside Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Fort Greene Park and Governor's Island on June 18, and will be followed by another 20 or so stations in the coming months. The original Street Charge station concepts were designed in early 2012 by Pensa as, according to the group's Marco Perry, "an elegant all-in-one community solution for solar charging of mobile devices.

" Development sketches then became working prototypes. One sported an LED street lamp with a PV panel on top, and another was created in collaboration with the Dumbo Business Improvement District with solar panels above sun umbrellas for use in a cafe setting.

It features solar panels positioned as leaves on metal branches made of pipes and was designed to blend into parks and other green public spaces. Apart from offering shade, Sologic’s eTree has a water fountain, a WiFi hotspot, a docking station to charge devices, and lights up with LEDs at night, according to the company. “I wanted to integrate the idea of solar energy to the community by creating the eTree,” Sologic chairman Michael Lasry told NBC News.

The six-year-old Israeli company got its start by providing solar energy systems to homes and businesses. The first eTree is due to be unveiled Thursday at a park near the town of Zichron Ya’akov, in northern Israel, according to Thinking of Going Solar?
