Wind turbines will be more efficient when the new air-flow technology is introduced. The new air-flow technology improved the efficiency of the blades during various wind conditions–great news for people pushing for wind power as an alternative power source. Syracuse University researchers are testing the new wind turbine system with the help from the United [...]
Diesel fuel is made from crude oil, a nonrenewable resource. Biodiesel fuels are characterized as substitutes for diesel, but not all biodiesel fuels are clean and renewable. Renewable biodiesel can be made relatively easily from used vegetable oil.
What are fuel cells? Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that combine hydrogen and oxygen in order to produce electricity. During the power generation cycle, water and heat are produced as a by-products. This is a far more ideal byproduct than the unclean emissions which are created by other methods of generating electricity. Fuel Cells will [...]
It’s a fact that the average American family spends more than $1,600 a year on their home utility bills. Because Energy has been “cheap” for a long time, we have not given energy efficiency the amount of attention it deserves. But with fuel prices rising, and the value of the dollar decreasing, its about time [...]
Solar hot water heating systems are an effective way of conserving energy and reducing your energy bill. Contrary to popular belief, solar water heating is not a new technology. Solar water heating systems have been used commercially for over a century now, with the first commercial water heater (the Climax Solar-Water Heater) going on sale [...]
