Geo Air Technology _______________________________ Geo Air 'vs Geo Liquid There are actually two principle technologies for the movement and storage of Geothermal Energy. Most people have only heard of "Geo Liquid" and for some reason has become the standard option for "Low Grade Geothermal" systems.
Wind power can be an excellent complement to a solar power system. Here in Colorado, when the sun isn't shining, the wind is usually blowing.

"The problem is not the windmill - it is the wind" Small windmills have been around for some decades, but in recent years the focus has shifted on developing their potential use in an urban environment (where most of us live). It’s difficult to keep track of the numerous proposed new designs , meant to be placed on the roof or on a mast in the garden. Small windmills in built-up environments are a remarkable trend. Through the ages, windmills have always demanded a free flow of strong wind. They are preferably placed on an open plain, as high as possible, with no obstacles around.

China has committed itself to establishing an entirely new nuclear energy programme using thorium as a fuel, within 20 years.
Thorium is a naturally occurring radioactive chemical element with the symbol Th and atomic number 90. It was discovered in 1828 by the Norwegian mineralogist Morten Thrane Esmark and identified by the Swedish chemist Jöns Jakob Berzelius and named after Thor , the Norse god of thunder.
Thorium One ton of thorium can produce as much energy as 200 tons of uranium and 3.5 million tons of coal, according to the former director of CERN. via Telegraph
