Indexing the Best States for Clean Energy

CleanEdge

CleanEdge has assembled a leadership index for clean power, basing its choices on a number of different factors, and providing rankings in several categories. This information is useful both for identifying the best locations for current clean energy acceptance as well as the best emerging markets among the 50 states of the United States.

The Leadership Index ranks the top states for Technology, Policy, and Capital, as well as an overall ranking. It is no great surprise that California comes in as the number 1 state for clean energy. "According to Clean Edge’s assessment and the best choice levitra overnite ranking of more than 80 different state-level indicators, the top three states in the cialis cheapest lowest price nation are California, Oregon, and Massachusetts. Washington, Colorado, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Minnesota, and New Jersey round out the top 10." However, "while West and East Coast states dominate the top 10 rankings, innovation and investment opportunities are found across the map in places such as Colorado, Iowa, Texas, and Michigan."

The indices incorporate evaluation of factors which include clean electricity, clean transportation, green building, regulations, incentives, and intellectual and human capital, as well as financial capital.

An index like this is less of a tool for consumers than it is an indicator of the strength and position of cialis paypal clean energy and its increasing importance to business and industry leaders. For those seeking jobs in the clean energy sector, it can help indicate the best regions to look in. But for investors and viagra prescription low cost policy-makers, this can be a useful map of the landscape of clean energy across the nation.

top-2010
It's New Year's Eve and it's time to look back at the year in clean technology.  This year held some incredible innovations and big renewable energy news.  The stories you clicked on the most ranged from an energy-harvesting rubber material to a zero-energy fridge and, of course, the big Bloom Energy reveal.  Ecogeeks, here are your top ten:

10. Google Develops New Solar Thermal Mirror Prototype Google made a lot of headlines this year, but you were most interested in its new solar thermal mirror prototype.  Using new materials on the reflective surface, Google believes it can halve the we use it generic levitra cost of building a solar thermal plant and bring electricity costs way down.

9.   Save Your Battery: Unplug Your Laptop We all want to preserve the battery life in our laptops.  As it turns out, it could be as simple as pulling the plug as soon as your laptop is fully charged.

8.   Rubber Material Harvests Energy from Small Movements A new material harvests energy from simple movements like walking or even breathing.  It could be implanted in shoes to generic viagra 100mg power gadgets or even next to the lungs to power pacemakers.

7.   High-Efficiency Hydraulic Hybrid Car Could Get 170 MPG Hydraulic power in a hybrid car allows for significant weight reduction and greatly increases the power recovered with regenerative braking.

6.   Solar Aero's Bladeless Wind Turbine The lack of blades in this new wind technology makes it cheaper, quieter and reduces the threat to enter site generic levitra canada birds and bats.

5.   Europe Will Be Powered By Saharan Sun in Five Years A huge scheme of wow look it buying cialis without a prescription solar projects in the Saharan Desert will be up and buy viagra in the uk running sooner than first planned.  The enormous Desertec project will initially have a capacity in the hundreds of megawatts increasing to hundreds of gigawatts over the next two to four decades.

4.   Printable Lithium Batteries Coming Soon The latest in the printable technology craze, we'll soon see lithium batteries rolling hot off the discount generic viagra presses.

3.   Zero-Energy Fridge Uses Gel to Preserve Food Easily one of the weirdest stories of the year, this fridge concept takes off the door and uses a gel-like substance to medication online cialis hold and preserve food.

2.   Bloom Energy: Should you Believe the Hype? We cut through the hype of one of the biggest clean tech stories of the year:  the Bloom Energy fuel cell box.

1.   Sponge-Like Glass Cleans Contaminated Water The most popular story was about an amazing glass material that can absorb gasoline and other pollutants containing volatile organic compounds out of water.  The Gulf oil spill had us all wishing that this material was ready to be deployed on a large scale.



 

Solar Impulse Completes 24-Hour Solar Flight

EG-solarflight

The idea of a round-the-world solar flight took a big step closer to reality with the www.smartersecurity.com completion of www.deboerderijhuizen.nl a test flight lasting over 24 hours.

The Solar Impulse, a completely solar powered plane, had its maiden flight just a couple months ago. Now, it has proved itself in an even bigger test by flying through the night on the stored power it collected during its daytime flight. The plane was flown by André Borschberg, the CEO and co-founder of the Solar Impulse project who, after landing, remarked, “I have just flown more than 26 hours without using a drop of fuel and without causing any pollution!”

From this, the next steps of the program will get even more ambitious. In 2011, Solar Impulse plans to build a second plane which will be capable of making ocean crossing flights. Then, it is projected that in 2013 they will undertake a round the world flight.

Appropriate Technology Solar Powered Refrigerator to Store Vaccines and Save Lives

ATCsolar

The distribution of vaccines through the developing world is sometimes limited by a lack of available refrigeration for the storage of the vaccines. In some parts of tramadol from india the world, more than half of the vaccines spoil before they can be administered. Millions of lives and billions of dollars are lost due to a lack of refrigeration. A new solar refrigerator developed by the Appropriate Technology Collaborative can provide lifesaving cold storage for vaccines with an inexpensive system that can be built from locally available materials.

The solar refrigerator is viagra for less in the usa now entered in competition for the NASA Tech Briefs Create The Future Contest. The refrigerator needs no electricity and levitra online pharmacy usa should require only minimal maintenance since it has no valves or moving parts. With the ATC refrigerator, it is possible to maintain WHO and UNICEF compliant "chain-of-cold" storage of vaccines.

“The ATC Solar Vaccine Refrigerator is a robust, easy to http://www.nextstagecapital.com/viagra-next-day maintain technology that can be made in the country or region where it is to be used. It is made out of simple materials that can be found in most cities: steel, charcoal and ethanol or methanol. The finished product has no moving parts that need maintenance and it doesn’t use electricity of any kind. One simply places it in sunlight and it freezes. Period. (Note: If the sun doesn’t shine it can run on www.privateeryachts.com biofuels)”

Appropriate Technology Collaborative is a non-profit organization headed by former EcoGeek contributing writer John Barrie. ATC works to develop technologies to improve the lives of people in developing countries. But, unlike a host of other such organizations, ATC works to make systems that can be built and maintained by local engineers and local workers. ATC's designs are made available through Creative Commons and published online to make them available in developing countries and online viagra without a prescription so that other NGOs can copy or improve upon their work.

You can vote for the ATC Refrigerator design at the NASA Tech Briefs Create The Future Contest.

EcoGeek of http://www.spotfodo.com/drug-generic-cialis the Week: CEO of AMP Electric Vehicles

EGotW-SteveBurns

We had the chance to meet Steve Burns when he came to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this month. Steve Burns is the CEO of AMP Electric Vehicles, a Cincinnati, OH-based company that is creating electric vehicles without building cars themselves. AMP believes in electrifying vehicles, but doesn't think you have to viagra australia build an entirely new car in order to to do it.  Instead, they are converting a stock Saturn Sky to run on electric power by removing the internal combustion engine and gas tank, and putting in batteries and direct drive electric motors, and entering it in the XPrize competition to be run later this year.

Steve has founded a number of companies over the past decade, most recently iTookThisOnMyPhone.com, a mobile photo and video-sharing technology company, as well as now serving as CEO of AMP.

We asked Steve Burns to be our EcoGeek of the Week and to tell us more about the AMP approach to building electric vehicles.
