The above list is a working draft document by the New Energy Congress (NEC), designed to come up with a listing the top 100 clean energy technologies, continually updated to reflect new developments and innovations.
If you know of a technology that should be listed here, you may submit it for review.
This page was first approved by NEC on Feb. 28, 2006 as an official NEC working document (not necessarily the contents and sequence at that time, but the page idea).
Subsequent to that, the Congress has begun to vote one technology at a time, every few days, and began releasing a monthly report beginning May 1, 2006. The first technologies listed are ranked according to those assessments by NEC members.
As a matter of a general guideline, NEC endeavors as a body to spend about 50% of our collective attention and efforts on conventional renewable energy technologies, and the remaining 50% on non-conventional, or "fringe" clean energy technologies. (Approved March 10, 2006)
A Word to the Wise:
You've heard the saying, "He who is one step ahead is a genius he who is two steps ahead is a crackpot." That saying applies to the world of ideas. In the marketplace, it can be rephrased as follows: "He who is one step ahead is very rich he who is two steps ahead is very dead -- or at least very persecuted." If you have a "two steps ahead" technology that is nearly ready for introduction into the market, you might consider purposely ratcheting it back a notch or two, so that it resembles a "one step ahead" technology. Then, once you have your foot in the door and your reputation established firmly, the "two steps ahead" will only be one step ahead. Probably the only way a two-steps-ahead technology could be introduced, would be through OS, where a simple set of plans for an easy-to-build device are published openly for the world, impossible to stop by the powers that be.
Please use the following format when presenting a technology:#
Congress:Top 100 Technologies -- RD - lists the Top 20
Congress:Top 100:Complete List - Complete T100 list
Congress:T100:Sterling's List - partitioned first by extent of commercial readiness and second by price point and other NEC criteria
Congress:T100:Hopper - awaiting evaluation for inclusion in the T100 list.
Congress:T100:Former - bumped off the T100 island.
Congress:T100:Not - The NEC voting never put it in the T100.
Congress:Technology Criteria - renewable, environmentally safe, affordable, credible, reliable, feasible, safe, good team, developed
Congress:T100:About - A brief description and history of the Top 100 listing, as well as guidelines and suggested bullet format.
