There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] Latest / Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies: Directory:Trends > Directory:Zeitgeist > News:2012 Highlights > 2012 in Review--2013 Free Energy Predictions - Though the year didn't bring several technologies to market as I had predicted last year (due to "you don't deserve it yet" lack of adequate awakening), great progress was made. We highlight some of the leading trends, both upward, as well as some of those that are fading, gratefully. (PESN January 2, 2013)

Directory:Wind > Directory:Wind:Cautions / Directory:Wind > Overcapacity Hits Wind Turbine Market - The world's largest wind turbine manufacturer is laying off employees due to over capacity in the market from competition from Chinese suppliers and lower demand in European and U.S. markets as unsustainable subsidies decline. Strong headwinds are blowing against the industry as governments have been forced to reduce the overly generous subsidies they have provided to wind producers. (CanadaFreePress January 24, 2012)

So Far, It Looks Like The Consumer - According to a recent survey conducted by infas, a social research and market institute in Bonn (Germany), drivers’ expectations and their actual behavior are wildly different. This leads them to avoid electric cars because of perceived shortcomings which actually have no effect on most drivers’ daily habits. (Gas2.0 January 8, 2012)

Something really big seems likely to happen in 2012 - 2015 that's so far out of left field that nobody could foresee it. We're talking game-changing big, such as (perhaps) the invention of a bonafide free energy device, or contact with a non-human civilization from another planet.

Directory:Solar > Directory:Solar PhotoVoltaics > Directory:Trends > A Bad Year for Solar Energy - By virtually any yardstick, 2011 was probably a year the PV solar panel industry may like to forget. First and foremost, of course, there was the Solyndra case, which quickly morphed into a major political issue that will likely be continually revisited during the upcoming U.S. presidential campaign. China's heavily-subsidized solar panel industry may present significant ongoing challenges... (Environmental Leader December 13, 2011)

Directory:Wind > Directory:Wind Farms > Directory:Wind Farms > Does this Picture Spell Doom for Wind Power? - The wrong kind of wind? It's a phrase that haunts those desperately trying to justify wind farms in Britain. However, apologists for the giant turbines now face the unpalatable truth that structures designed to operate in windy conditions literally fell flat on their faces when the wind became a bit too strong. According to the latest figures, one turbine worked at 15 per cent of its capacity last year, generating generated electricity worth an estimated £100,000 but had to be subsidised with £130,000 of public money.
