US CO2 Emissions Lowest In Last 20 Years

US CO2 Emissions Lowest In Last 20 Years

According to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the U.S. has dropped to a 20-year low. The drop comes as surprise to officials and scientists practicing related trade. The main reason behind the surprising drop in carbon dioxide emissions is said to the result of recent shift to natural gas by some power plant operators from coal.

Fujitsu Recycling Wasted CDs And DVDs To Build Shiny New Notebooks

Fujitsu Recycling Wasted CDs And DVDs To Build Shiny New Notebooks

What do you do with CDs and DVDs? Listen music, write Data, watch movies & lots of entertaining attributes to enjoy. Have you ever thought of any other alternative idea? Japanese electronics giant Fujitsu came up with an idea of recycling the CDs & DVDs into laptops. Aren’t you surprised!!! Well it’s not necessarily to be the disks that you needed. You might have old/damaged disks in your home which you are not using since long. Those wasted & unused CDs will be used in the recycling process for the generation of the bodies of the new Fujitsu notebooks.

GE, Ford, And The University Of Michigan Team Up To Extend EV Battery Life

GE, Ford, And The University Of Michigan Team Up To Extend EV Battery Life

Researchers all around the world are teaming up with automotive manufacturers and battery manufacturers in order to design “improvements in battery packs” that will help Electric Vehicles (EVs) drive faster. For EVs, longer battery life equates to a longer driving distance. So, General Electric (GE), Ford, and the University of Michigan are working together on a new project with the goal of extending battery life for EVs.

Zero-Blade Turbine Could Revolutionize Wind Power Industry

Zero-Blade Turbine Could Revolutionize Wind Power Industry

We have seen many high-tech wind turbines earlier that are considered as one of the main sources of sustainable energy. It’s sad but true that, the rotation of the blades of wind turbines often kill birds. Added to that, the noise and vibration of the wind turbines cause headaches, nausea and insomnia among people living nearby; even scramble radio and TV signals. But, this things may end with a revolutionary design from a Tunisian company, Saphon Energy. Saphon has come up with a non-rotational blade free wind power generation system, called The Saphonian.

Purify Water Through Solar Bag While You Walk

Purify Water Through Solar Bag While You Walk

In many parts of the world, access to safe drinking water is a major concern. People often have to walk many miles per day to get water. The problem is, even that water is not always purified before drinking, which often leads to death from water-borne diseases. According to reports, water-borne diseases kill more people in Africa, than war and violence. But, that may be curbed with Solar Bag – an innovative solar water purifier.

Going Green Got Easier With UCLA’s New Flexible Transparent Solar Cells

Going Green Got Easier With UCLA’s New Flexible Transparent Solar Cells

A team of researchers at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has developed a new transparent solar cell that can generate electricity while allowing people to see through the cells. The cells can be used in windows to generate electricity without compromising the aesthetics. Using transparent solar cells in large buildings will definitely increase the deployment area and will thus increase generated power.

Meet The World’s Fastest Electric Airplane

Meet The World’s Fastest Electric Airplane

Electric Airplanes are now engaged in making world records. Though it’s a very risky job but to the pilots of electric airplanes, it is both challenging and pleasuring. After the record scored by SkySpark, electric vehicle pioneer and green technology innovator Chip Yates has made a new world record of flying at 202.6 mph in an electric plane Long-EZ.

Aegis Parka – A Pollution Resistant Jacket For You

Aegis Parka – A Pollution Resistant Jacket For You

Nieuwe Heren, by Erik De Nijs and Tim Smit, has designed an innovative men’s jacket that can detect and wear off pollution. The pollution detecting jacket, branded as Aegis Parka, detects common air pollutants including CO2 and warns the jacket wearer about the pollution level. The jacket can also improve air quality around the wearer and supply clean air with a built-in-respirator.

Greenpeace Sceptic About Apple’s Promise Of Going Green Soon

Greenpeace Sceptic About Apple’s Promise Of Going Green Soon

So, how green is Apple? Yes, you guessed it right, we’re not talking about the fruit, it’s about the phenomenal Apple Inc. Back in April, the renowned environmental activist group Greenpeace ranked Apple to be a ‘not very environment friendly tech company’. The technology giant received three Ds and an F in the report card issued by Greenpeace. Last week, the report was revised again on the news of Apple’s plan of using 100% renewable power in it’s new iCloud data center. But, is Greenpeace convinced yet?

NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

NASA Developing Wind-Borne Power System Like Flying A Kite

In the childhood, almost everyone loved flying kite. NASA is bringing the childhood memories live again with their new airborne wind power system which incorporates the simplest technology of flying kite. Though it is an under-developing project but the test result of the prototype is very promising. The successful implementation will add a new phase in the evolution of renewable power generation. It will lead us to produce more efficient and sustainable energy.

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

ES Pipe: Waterwheel – Turns Regular Water Supply Into A Mini Hydroelectric Generator

Now a days many energy efficient technologies are evolving to reduce energy consumption. Today I am going to introduce a new technology which generates electricity through the pipe waterwheel. In the third world countries like in Africa or South-Eastern Asia, this technology is much more useful. There are some areas in these regions where people didn’t have the opportunity to use electricity. This technology is not the solution of grid electricity at all; rather you can use it for low energy consumption devices such as light bulb. As it can store energy in a battery, so only dc electricity will be used.

New Generation Of Fabricated And Flexible Organic Solar Cells To Increase Efficiency

New Generation Of Fabricated And Flexible Organic Solar Cells To Increase Efficiency

German researchers are developing a new generation of solar cells to improve the energy conversion efficiency. A bunch of promising researchers from the Light Technology Institute of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are the pioneers of this new project. The project is supposed to be finished in four years as it is the deal now which aims to improve the efficiency of organic solar cells to more than 10 percent. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research has already granted funding of EUR 4.25 million.
