The Technology Strategy Board is to stimulate improvements in low carbon energy technologies through a £10 million investment in collaborative research and development.
Research and development into the integration and advancement of more energy efficient lighting, lasers and displays is set to be stimulated through a £10 million investment by the Technology Strategy Board.
Eurus Energy group has specialized in the development of the wind power generation business since it was established in 2002, and at this time, it has entered the photovoltaic power generation field, which is a clean and inexhaustible energy source, in the same way as wind power generation.
Solar Innovations, a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial greenhouses, conservatories, sunrooms, folding and sliding glass doors, walls, windows, and screens, announces the addition of horticultural services and environmental planning to its list of available services.
The Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue has placed environmental protection and conservation on the top of its priority list in preparations for the Olympics. Whatever can be recycled and reused, is, including horse waste.
In a survey of the northern Basin and Range province of the western United States, geochemists Mack Kennedy of the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Matthijs van Soest of Arizona State University have discovered a new tool for identifying potential geothermal energy resources.
A mirror alignment measurement device, invented by Rich Diver, a researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, may soon make one of the most popular solar collector systems, parabolic troughs, more affordable and energy efficient.
Sandia National Laboratories researchers Mark Ivey and Bernie Zak are members of a research team from around the world whose work on the cold tundra in northern Alaska is helping to transform scientists' understanding of what the future may hold for Earth's climate.
A new wind turbine blade design that researchers at Sandia National Laboratories developed in partnership with Knight and Carver of San Diego promises to be more efficient than current designs. It should significantly reduce the cost-of-energy (COE) of wind turbines at low-wind-speed sites.
When someone mentions a mobile home or "house trailer," the image usually doesn't make others green with envy. Mobile homes haven't earned recognition for long-term quality, environmental friendliness or return on value.
The University of California, San Diego has become the first campus on the West Coast to join the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), North America’s only voluntary, legally binding trading system to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. UC San Diego is only the seventh university in the nation to join the climate exchange.
A Duke University-led analysis of available records shows that while the North Atlantic Ocean’s surface waters warmed in the 50 years between 1950 and 2000, the change was not uniform. In fact, the subpolar regions cooled at the same time that subtropical and tropical waters warmed.
Biofuels reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in comparison to fossil fuels. In the Jan. 4 issue of the journal Science, Smithsonian researchers highlight a new study that factors in environmental costs of biofuel production.
A Stanford scientist has spelled out for the first time the direct links between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and increases in human mortality, using a state-of-the-art computer model of the atmosphere that incorporates scores of physical and chemical environmental processes.
