Clean Energy Technologies are constantly coming on line, but many are still in a stage of development that does not allow commercialization. Ending our dependency on oil and other fossil fuels requires that we satisfy our energy needs in a different way, using technology that does not require such fuels. Efficient energy storage is part of the picture as some renewable energy generation methods are intermittent by nature.
This page is a pointer to what is available for purchase or at least is very close. It lists the best Clean Energy Products that you can buy or construct. Technologies are taken from the New Energy Congress Congress:Top 100 Technologies -- RD listing. The listing does not include utility scale technologies - it is biased towards distributed energy generation. If you find a great clean energy application that is commercially available and isn't listed here, please add it or submit it, or signal its existence via the

Technologies are listed in random order.#Directory:Home Generation:Ground Source Heat Pump >Directory:EarthLinked Technologies - Company has been in the business of installing Ground Source Heat Pumps for nearly two decades. The residential and commercial systems save energy in the winter and summer, drawing from the thermal mass of the earth with their direct geo-exchange technology. ROI is just a few years. (http://earthlinked.com) #Directory:Wind > Directory:Home Generation:Wind Turbine >Directory:Wind:Skystream - The first fully integrated wind generator designed specifically for the grid-connected residential market. The output would provide 40 to 90 percent of an average home’s energy needs. In states like Hawaii, where the cost of energy and wind speeds are both high, Skystream 3.7 can pay for itself in less than 4 years. #
There was an error working with the wiki: Code- Arthur O'Conner of Australia has international patents on a wind turbine design that is very quiet, can operate a low speeds while tolerating high wind speeds, with a price tag that makes energy generation comparable to grid energy cost for residential and commercial applications. (http://www.hushenergy.com) #Directory:Batteries >Directory:A123 Systems - A123 replaces the cobalt oxide in lithium-ion cells with nanophosphate, enabling a quick charge, while delivering high power density, with a long life-time. Is used in power tools, and is process of breaking into hybrid vehicle market. (http://www.a123systems.com) #Directory:Tidal Power / Directory:River Energy >Directory:Verdant Power - Verdant Power is a world leader in commercializing low-impact kinetic hydropower solutions, harnessing the energy from river, tide, and man-made channels. Prototype array is presently producing power for customers. (http://verdantpower.com) #Directory:Wind > Directory:Vertical Axis Wind Turbines >Directory:TESNIC - The TESNIC is based on the principles of the Tesla turbine, extracting the wind power via adhesion, in addition to the classic drag and lift extraction, enabling it to achieve a very high efficiency, with the potential cost of electricity produced below the utility price. (http://www.tesnic.com) #Directory:River Energy / Directory:Vortex > Directory:Zotloterer Gravitational Vortex Power Plant - Mini-power plant is simple to construct, has a turbine efficiency of 80% but is safe for fish due to low turbine speed. The gravitational vortex hydro technology can be applied with water drop as little as 0.7 meters. The cost for installation of the prototype was close to $1/watt capacity. (http://www.zotloeterer.com/) #Directory:River Energy / Directory:Tidal Power / Directory:Ocean Current / Directory:Water >Directory:Bourne Energy - Bourne’s Kinetic Energy Systems entail floating turbines for river, tidal and ocean currents, and have numerous environmental advantages over conventional hydropower dams, Run-of-River and other hydropower systems. The latest is in developing potable water. (http://bourneenergy.com) #Directory:Batteries > Directory:Vanadium Redox Batteries - Low cost, low environmental impact battery that has a superior deep cycling life and can be mechanically refueled in minutes. Suitable for green energy storage, backup power, electric vehicles and utility load leveling / peak shaving.
