BuildItSolar: Solar energy projects for Do It Yourselfers to save money and reduce pollution Energy Tower: Power for 15 Earths? Researchers have designed a product that its inventors claim could easily produce between 15 and 20 times the total electricity the world uses today. Not only that, it could also be used as a desalination device and may be able to reverse the effects of global warming. Those are pretty big claims, but the researchers from the Technion - Israel Institute of Science seem confident that the "Energy Tower" could be a major solution to the world's problems. They've been working on the concept since 1983, and together have spent more than 150 man-years researching, designing, testing, and analyzing. As project founder Professor Dan Zaslavsky explains, the Energy Tower works on the basic principle of convection: hot air rises and cold air falls. Any kind of water - from a sea or drainage ditch - would be added to the top of the tower. Because it relies on the sun for hot air, the Energy Tower is considered a type of solar power.

Between the Poles The Green Guide Solar Water Heating Projects and Plans Solar water heating systems have a good economic payoff, and are manageable systems to install or build as a DIY project. Some of the solar water heating designs are very simple and low cost. You can save as much as $7000 by building your own system. There are just over one hundred projects with full construction details listed below -- all free. The projects range from simple batch heaters for warm climates through closed loop and drain back systems that will work in any climate. One of the systems is our own $1,000 solar water heating system that has provided a solar fraction in excess of 90% through our cold Montana winter. My thanks to the people who have built systems, and then taken the time to send in pictures and descriptions for others to use.

EcoGeek - Brains for the Earth etude-complete Avec les 3 milliards d’euros prévus pour le prototype de réacteur nucléaire EPR, que pourrait-on faire dans la région "Grand Ouest" de la France, dans le domaine de la maîtrise de la demande d’énergie et des énergies renouvelable, et pour l’emploi ? Disponible en synthèse grand public de 16 pages et en étude complète de 114 pages (2006) Alors qu’un sondage de la Commission Européenne de janvier 2006 révèle que seuls 8 % des Français souhaitent voir développer l’utilisation de l’énergie nucléaire, cette question devrait être au coeur des débats. Pourtant, la décision de construire un réacteur EPR prépare la relance du nucléaire sans qu’aucune alternative n’ait jamais été sérieusement envisagée. Et si l’on se donnait les moyens de soutenir le développement d’autres formes d’énergie ? Le Réseau "Sortir du nucléaire" a chargé les experts du bureau d’étude "Les 7 Vents du Cotentin" de se pencher sur cette question. Feuilletez la brochure au format pdf
