Then, on one side of the boreholes, they lowered a vibrating probe several feet into the soil. On the surface, they placed a network of sensors to record vibrations.

Cargo boat and US navy ship set sail on 'green' algal oil in marine fuel trials Giant cargo boats and US navy warships have been successfully powered on oil derived from genetically modified algae in a move which could herald a revolution in the fuel used by the world's fleets – and a reduction in the pollution they cause. The results of substituting algal oil for low-grade, "bunker" fuel and diesel in a 98,000-tonne container ship are still being evaluated by Maersk, the world's biggest shipping company, which last week tested 30 tonnes of oil supplied by the US navy in a vessel travelling from Europe to India. Last month, the navy tested 20,000 gallons of algal fuel on a decommissioned destroyer for a few hours. Both ran their trials on a mix of algal oil – between 7% and 100% – and conventional bunker fuel. "The tests are not complete yet, but we had very few problems," a Maersk spokesman said.

Total green electricity generation for Scotland Hydro-electric power via Shutterstock Scotland can generate all its domestic electricity using renewable methods by 2020, the Government has confirmed. However, it will be challenge to reach the target and green energy generation will need to be supported by at least 2.5 GW from thermal power units that will be increasing their carbon capture and storage rates. The Government also aims to completely remove carbon from electricity generation by 2030, under plans outlined in the Electricity Generation Policy Statement (EGPS), which has just been released. Fergus Ewing, Scotland's Energy Minister, says, "We know there is doubt and scepticism about our 100 per cent renewables target, and the financial and engineering challenges required to meet it. But we will meet these challenges.

Pay as you go solar power lighting in Kenya © M-KOPAA solar startup is helping to change the way rural residents in Kenya get their light and power, by offering small solar power systems, just large enough to provide home lighting and mobile phone charging, on a pay-as-you-go basis. The majority of Kenyans (an estimated 80%) are not connected to a grid, and must light their homes by using kerosene lamps. Not only are these lamps not very efficient, but they also generate fumes from the fuel they burn, which, along with smoke from cooking fires, contributes to health problems in residents.
