Hydrogen is an emissions-free renewable source of energy – however, logistic obstacles related to current considerations such as high-pressure tanks, and metal and chemical hydrides, have stymied its progress towards the mass market. View all SiGNA’s solution uses sodium silicide (NaSi) to produce clean hydrogen gas in real time, in response to fuel cell demand at pressures smaller than those found in a common soda can.
Sodium silicide is a non-flammable, air-stable powder that instantly reacts with water (or water solutions, including urine) to form pure hydrogen. It is more efficient than pure sodium and safer than other materials because it does not store hydrogen. PowerTrekk is designed to work anywhere and power all types of electrical devices that require less than 4W, including cell phones, cameras, iPods, GPS systems, and PDAs. Press releases. 14.

April 2014 | By: EU PVSEC EU PVSEC 2014: Call for Papers Receives Great Response The Call for Papers for the 29th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC 2014) generated more than 1,500 contributions (abstracts) from 73 countries applying for presentation at the EU PVSEC... 10. ABB, Solar Impulse form technology alliance ABB's heritage of technology innovation in renewables, sustainable transportation and energy efficiency makes it an ideal partner for Solar Impulse, which is attempting the first round-the-world flight powered by the sun. 10. Solar-Fabrik AG expands product range 09. RECOM joins BPVA board of directors 09. 08. Wexler launches the Flex ONE: First flexible ereader based on LG Electronic Paper Display.
With the launch of the aptly-named Flex ONE, Wexler is first to commercially launch a flexible ereader based on LG's Electronic Paper Display (EPD) technology.
Wexler additionally claims that the Flex ONE is the thinnest and lightest ereader in the world. Weighing in at a mere 110-g (3.9-oz), the 4-mm (0.16-in) thick ereader delivers on LG's promise that EPD-based products would follow soon after the technology was announced. Unsurprisingly for a reader based on EPD, the Flex ONE boasts a six-inch monochrome XGA (1024 x 768) display. The reader boasts a hefty 8 GB of storage, twice that of the Kindle DX, and four times that of Amazon's new Kindle, despite having a screen of identical size and being only two thirds its weight.
As storage:weight ratios go, the Flex ONE is truly remarkable. Honda Fit EV receives highest-ever EPA efficiency rating. PlugBook power strip can be hidden on a bookshelf. The PlugBook can be kept on a bookshelf and easily grabbed whenever needed.
Toyota vehicle-to-home technology turns Prius Plug-in into an emergency generator. Toyota will begin testing its V2H technology later this year at approximately 10 of its Toyota City smart homes Image Gallery (2 images) Electric vehicle charging has been a hot topic for years, but it's mostly been a one-way discussion: how the EV charges from a given home charging system.
Toyota turns the conversation around, experimenting with how the home can draw power from the EV. "Cool blue" pigment could boost energy efficient building. This 'trigonal bipyramidal' crystalline structure that forms the basis of OSU's 'cool blue' pigment Researchers at Oregon State University (OSU) have discovered a new type of blue pigment that could help boost the energy efficiency of buildings.
Discovered unexpectedly three years ago, the "cool blue" pigment has unusually high infrared heat reflectivity which it is hoped can be channeled into commercial products in the near future. Using roofing materials that reflect heat well has long been recognized as an important aspect of passive solar design. While lighter pigments are generally better when it comes to reflecting heat in the infrared spectrum, the new "cool blue" punches above its weight despite its deeper tone. “This pigment has infrared heat reflectivity of about 40 percent, which is significantly higher than most blue pigments now being used,” said Mas Subramanian, an OSU professor of chemistry who discovered the compound. SoCalGas demonstrates Cogenra’s cogeneration solar system for cooling purposes. Cogenra's cogeneration system produces heat and electricity, increasing efficiency to up to 75 percent Image Gallery (2 images) The Southern California Gas Company, the largest natural gas distribution company in the U.S., has become the first utility in that country to test Cogenra’s solar cogeneration solution for cooling purposes.
The system will provide air conditioning for SoCalGas’s Energy Resource Center (ERC). Until now, the technology has been mainly applied to solar hot water, space heating and electricity. The idea is to add an element of multitasking to a solar system, in order to maximize its output and value. Although it may sound strange that hot water may be used for cooling purposes, that’s how it works, as absorption chillers then use heat to evaporate water. The demonstration 20 SunDeck module system has a 50.2-kilowatt capacity and was installed on top of the ERC, which has a capacity to accommodate 700 people. Source: Cogenra About the Author.
