The Bureau of Economic Geology at The University of Texas at Austin s Jackson School of Geosciences announces the Advanced Energy Consortium (AEC), a multimillion-dollar research consortium dedicated to the development of micro and nanotechnology applications to increase oil and gas production.
n 2008, a new-to-market invention created by a frustrated engineer is revolutionizing how consumers heat and cool their homes. The Acadia: Combined Heating and Cooling System from Hallowell International, was born from the inventor's aggravation from ever-higher energy bills. This all-electric single system delivers a new level of efficiency and performance for both heating and cooling, dramatically reduces monthly energy bills and, by not using fossil fuels, eases a household's strain on the environment. Indeed, the Acadia outperforms conventional heating systems by 300 percent.

An Imperial physics postgraduate student has been awarded a prestigious national prize for his PhD thesis.
A national team of scientists led by experts at Durham University are embarking on one of the UK’s largest ever research projects into photovoltaic (PV) solar energy.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has studied the profitability of using bush chips in electricity production in Namibia, where biomass from bushes has great energy production potential. Namibia suffers from the overgrowth of bush, which is disruptive to cattle raising, the country's primary source of livelihood. VTT also developed the production technology for bush chips.
Forty hybrid sedans will replace traditional gasoline-powered vehicles in Verizon's local fleet.
The Boeing Company today released a 53-page study prepared by Conklin & de Decker Aviation Information showing that a commercial 767 airplane is substantially more fuel efficient than the larger Airbus 330.
When someone mentions "wind energy," what usually come to mind are the fields of giant utility-grade wind turbines located off the coasts of many countries and on mountain tops everywhere, and small residential-grade windmill-style turbines designed for personal use.
