Latest: Directory:Ocean Wave Energy / Directory:Mimicking Living Organisms > Directory:Wave Motion of Clouds - As another example of the macrocosm mirroring the microcosm, a 30x timelapse video of clouds around Canary Island in Spain resemble ocean waves crashing into a shore line. Good luck tying this in to practical energy research. (PESWiki April 3, 2010)

Directory:Alternative Fuels > Directory:Biofuels > Directory:Algae > From Hype to Reality – Not All Algae Are Created Equally - Algae biofuels are often considered one of those technologies --- like hydrogen fuel cells --- that are always "ten years away." Well, one company, Solazyme, says it might have just cracked the code and could be supplying lots of algae jet fuel and diesel in the coming years. (Green Tech Media Apr. 1, 2010)

Directory:Fuel Efficiency / Directory:U.S. Government and Energy > White House Issues New Gas Mileage Standards - The Obama administration has signed off on the nation's first rules on greenhouse gas emissions seting new fuel standards to meet a fleet-wide average of 35.5 mpg that will raise current standards by nearly 10 mpg by the 2016 model year. Though adding nearly $1000 per vehicle by 2016, drivers could save as much as $3,000 over the life of a vehicle through better gas mileage. (Slashdot Apr. 2, 2010)

Directory:Fuel Cells / Directory:Methanol > Oorja Unveils Micro Fuel Cell That Could Power Your House - The stationary fuel cell industry, including Directory:BloomBox Fuel Cell by Bloom Energy, has some competition in the form of a methanol fuel cell device from a California-based startup called Oorja Protonics. Oorja’s soon-to-be-unveiled device is much cheaper and can generate 5 kw of energy — enough to power a home or small business. (Inhabitat March 19, 2010)
