Inventor Tom Chi is addressing the energy crisis with a GREEN solution that he calls "impossibly simple" and that he describes as "one more Essential action we need to take to reduce energy dependence and fuel costs."
An energy materials research group in alkaline polymer fuel cells lead by Dr John Varcoe at the University of Surrey has been awarded £292k by the EPSRC to develop new low-temperature fuel cells which could lower the cost and increase the operation times of batteries used in everyday gadgets such as mobile phones and laptops. The EPSRC award to Surrey forms part of a larger £1.4m award to four UK universities.
GE Energy reinforced its position as North America's leading supplier of wind turbines in 2007, with another record-breaking year for the U.S. wind industry.

California energy giant Clipper Windpower, Plc has chosen Blyth, Northumberland in the United Kingdom as the site for a new generation of offshore wind turbines, North England Inward Investment Agency (NEIIA) has announced.
Renewable energy must be developed in parallel with nuclear power and a clean-up of coal-fired power station technology, if the UK is to meet increasing demand without relying on enormous and potentially debilitating natural gas imports. That is the conclusion drawn from a report to be published in Inderscience's International Journal of Nuclear Governance, Economy and Ecology.

ZBB Energy Corporation, an emerging provider of energy storage systems, announced today that its executives have been chosen to present to the Clean Equity Monaco - Emerging Environmental Technology Conference, February 20-21.
Climate scientists are collaborating with experts in economic theory to improve their forecasting models and assess more accurately the impact of rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. Although there is broad consensus that there will be a significant rise in average global temperature, there is great uncertainty over the extent of the change, and the implications for different regions.
