  • Wind > Horizontal > Offshore >
    GE’s Gigantic Offshore Wind Turbine is 25% More Efficient - Rather than increasing the size to generate more power, GE is designing longer blades and a more efficient drive train. Investing $453 million in order to mass produce these next gen 4 MW turbines which will be 300 feet tall and have a rotor diameter of 360 feet, GE hopes to release them in 2012 for offshore use in Europe.

    Battery-power desalination offers hope to parched areas - A new approach to stripping salt from seawater, called ion concentration polarization, being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries. As an added bonus, the desalination system would also remove many contaminants, viruses and bacteria at the same time. (PhysOrg; March 21, 2010)

  • Nuclear > Fusion > Overviews / Cold >
    Fusion's ups and downs - There's more than one way to do fusion energy research: Some approaches rely on applying well-accepted physics, at a cost of billions of dollars, on a timeline that could stretch out for decades. Other approaches follow unconventional paths that could get to the goal much more quickly, for much less money. (MSNBC; March 23, 2010)

  • Pollution / Recycling / Solar >
    Solar’s Dirty Little Secret - "Green" solar panels can have their dirty side in terms of disposal and manufacturing.

    Hyperdimensional Hexagon on Saturn and Free Energy (2 | 3 | 4) - In an interview on Coast to Coast a couple of years ago, Richard C. Hoagland discussed why a hexagon shape appears on the north pole of Saturn, saying it is a function of hyperdimensional physics -- drawing energy from elsewhere -- and how this could be a source of free energy on earth if we could harness it.
