We launched Google PowerMeter as a free energy monitoring tool to raise awareness about the importance of giving people access to their energy information. PowerMeter included key features like visualizations of your energy usage, the ability share information with others, and personalized recommendations to save energy. We partnered with device manufacturers and utilities around the world. Many of our partners now have new options available for accessing energy information. We are pleased that PowerMeter helped demonstrate the importance of access to energy information, and created a model for others. We continue to see encouraging results about the importance of access to energy data. Momentum is building toward making energy information more readily accessible, and it’s exciting to see others drive innovation and pursue opportunities in this important new market. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished with PowerMeter and look forward to what will develop next in this space. Related:  mobell3Energy

Publications by Googlers Google publishes hundreds of research papers each year. Publishing is important to us; it enables us to collaborate and share ideas with, as well as learn from, the broader scientific community. Submissions are often made stronger by the fact that ideas have been tested through real product implementation by the time of publication. We believe the formal structures of publishing today are changing - in computer science especially, there are multiple ways of disseminating information. Open Source We understand the value of a collaborative ecosystem and love open-source software. Product and Feature Launches With every launch, we're publishing progress and pushing functionality. Industry Standards Our researchers are often helping to define not just today's products but also tomorrow's. Resources "Resources" doesn't just mean tangible assets but also intellectual. Impact Couple big challenges with big resources and Google offers unprecedented research opportunities.

RE<C - A Project to Develop Electricity from Renewable Energy Sources Our approach to RE<C Through RE<C, we made several investments in companies working on potentially breakthrough technologies. For instance, we invested in companies like Brightsource Energy and eSolar to help expand their work on concentrating solar power technology, and in Potter Drilling to advance its innovative geothermal drilling technology. And we've also sponsored research to develop the most state of the art Geothermal Map of the US, helping better understand the potential for geothermal energy to provide renewable power that’s always available. The solar power tower is an exciting technology that works by using a field of mirrors, called heliostats, to concentrate the sun’s rays onto a solar receiver on top of a tower. Our RE<C engineering team focused their research on two areas of solar power technology: reducing the costs associated with heliostats, and reducing the cost and water consumption of the system.

Deutschland ist Stromexport-Meister - Sonntag, 17. August 2008, 19:23 Uhr Von wegen Stromlücke: Rein rechnerisch laufen in diesem Jahr drei deutsche Atomkraftwerke nur für den Export. Und erstmals werden wohl über 100 Milliarden Kilowattstunden Ökostrom produziert. Der deutschen Wirtschaft gelang es wiederum nicht, Wirtschaftswachstum vom Stromhunger abzukoppeln Aus Freiburg und BerlinBERNWARD JANZING und NICK REIMER Deutschland wird im Jahr 2008 voraussichtlich mehr Strom exportieren als je zuvor in seiner Geschichte. Der Braunkohle-Tagebau Nochten in der Lausitz (Fotos: Reimer) Den Berechnungen zu Folge hatte Deutschland im gesamten Jahr 2007 insgesamt 19 Milliarden Kilowattstunden an Stromüberschuss erzeugt, der ins Ausland abfloss. 2006 waren es sogar 19,8 Milliarden - das war bislang der Rekord in der deutschen Stromgeschichte. Die Atomkraftfans um Wirtschaftsminister Michael Glos (CSU) hatten in der Vergangenheit immer wieder davor gewarnt, dass - im Falle des Atomausstieges - Strom in Deutschland knapp wird.

Technology The technology behind Google's great results As a Google user, you're familiar with the speed and accuracy of a Google search. How exactly does Google manage to find the right results for every query as quickly as it does? The heart of Google's search technology is PigeonRank™, a system for ranking web pages developed by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin at Stanford University. Building upon the breakthrough work of B. F. Why Google's patented PigeonRank™ works so well PigeonRank's success relies primarily on the superior trainability of the domestic pigeon (Columba livia) and its unique capacity to recognize objects regardless of spatial orientation. By collecting flocks of pigeons in dense clusters, Google is able to process search queries at speeds superior to traditional search engines, which typically rely on birds of prey, brooding hens or slow-moving waterfowl to do their relevance rankings. Integrity Data PigeonRank Frequently Asked Questions How was PigeonRank developed? RechargeIT was launched in 2007 as an effort within to demonstrate plug-in electric vehicle (EV) technology and accelerate its adoption. With several new EV’s now available in the marketplace, we’ve retired the RechargeIT initiative. In fact, we’ve updated our EV infrastructure to include more than 30 of the newest plug-in vehicles as part of our employee car sharing service, Gfleet. We’ve started with the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf and we’ll be adding new models as they become available. We’ve also been busy creating the largest corporate EV charging infrastructure in the country, with over 200 chargers currently in place, with the goal of electrifying 5% of our parking spaces at our Mountain View headquarters. When we launched RechargeIT in 2007, there were no commercially available plug-in hybrid EV’s available in the market. The RechargeIT Demonstration Fleet During charging, the system monitored and recorded the AC charge power. The driving experiment

Google Desktop Update In 2004, Google launched Google Desktop, a program designed to make it easy for users to search their own PCs for emails, files, music, photos, Web pages and more. Desktop has been used by tens of millions of people and we’ve been humbled by its usage and great user feedback. However, over the past seven years we’ve also witnessed some big changes in how users store and access their own data, with many moving to web-based applications. There has been a significant shift from local to cloud-based storage and computing, as well as integration of Google Desktop functionality (like local search) into most modern operating systems. This is a positive development for users and we’re excited that most people now have instant access to their personal information. As of September 14, Google Desktop will no longer be available for download, and existing installations will not be updated to include new features or fixes. Thanks again to all of our users.

Papier sparen - Schulen schließen den Kreislauf - Greenpeace, Nachrichten zum Thema Wälder Vor zehn bis 15 Jahren haben wir schon einmal den Versuch unternommen, Schulen anzuschreiben, ob sie recyceltes Papier verwenden wollen. Die Reaktion war gleich null, erzählt Brigitte Weber. Als sie dann selbst Grundschullehrerin wurde und die Abläufe einer Schule kannte, wusste sie, dass sie jetzt etwas verändern kann. Ich habe einmal hochgerechnet, wie viele Schulhefte ein Schüler pro Jahr verbraucht, und war selbst erstaunt, sagt sie. Brigitte Weber sieht aber die Problematik nicht nur bundesweit, sondern vor allem vor Ort. Auch die Schule ihres Sohnes stellte nach Brigitte Webers Vorschlag komplett auf Recyclingpapier um. Egal wie die Umstellung erfolgt, sie ist in jedem Falle richtig.
