Are we on the cusp of a solar energy boom?

Solar power is getting much easier to store — and at a much cheaper price
The total solar energy hitting the Earth each year is equivalent to 12.2 trillion watt-hours. That's over 20,000 times more than the total energy all of humanity consumes each year.

And yet photovoltaic solar panels, the instruments that convert solar radiation into electricity, produce only 0.7 percent of the energy the world uses.

Iran to Unveil 4 Scientific Achievements in New Energy Sources

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Nasrin Soltankhah announced that the country plans to unveil four scientific achievements in the field of new energy resources in the near future.

Iran has so far inaugurated solar power plants in 4 universities and a fifth one will kick off work in Niroo Research Institute affiliated to the energy ministry tomorrow, Soltankhah said in Tehran on Saturday.

She also announced that Iranian scientists have managed to produce raw material for building wind turbines, adding that the related production line will be inaugurated on Sunday. The country formerly imported the raw material from foreign countries.

The nuclear reactor in your basement. NASA and Cold Fusion

How would you like to replace your water heater with a nuclear reactor? That’s what Joseph Zawodny, a senior scientist at NASA’s Langley Research Center, hopes to help bring about. It would tap the enormous power of the atom to provide hot water for your bath, warm air for your furnace system, and more than enough electricity to run your house and, of course, your electric car.

If your thoughts have raced to Fukushima or Three Mile Island or Chernobyl, let me reassure you. Zawodny is not suggesting that you put that kind of reactor in your house. What he has in mind is a generator that employs a process called Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions. (The same process is sometimes called Lattice Energy Nuclear Reactions. We’ll just call it LENR.)

Breakthrough Energy Movement Conference, Hilversum Holland, November 9, 10, 11, 2012

We are excited to announce our first conference to be held on November 9, 10, 11 in Hilversum Holland. Tickets are now on sale.

We have put together a world class program which will cover breakthrough technologies and their world-changing implications. Together we will take a journey into the past, present and future of our energy landscape. With over 18 speakers, two conference rooms and a 3 day program, this event is designed to focus on the full scope of Breakthrough Energy Technologies.

The first day is about the Science. What is Breakthrough Energy? What are the breakthroughs of this time? What are the basic principles? How are they scalable and applicable in today’s society?

Make your own fermented probiotic dense foods

An abandoned food preparation method is making a comeback. Canning (with glass jars) and fermenting vegetables was done in the past to store vegetables through long winters. Now this method is making a comeback for preparing probiotic rich foods cheaply. The importance of probiotics cannot be over emphasized.

Fermented Foods

Most of us know of sauerkraut. During our SAD days (Standard American Diet) we garnished hot dogs and bratwurst with it. It is a fermented food, of which there are many. The Korean dish, Kimchi, is another fermented dish that healthy foodies are looking into.

The fact is that almost any veggie can be fermented to yield high amounts of probiotics, mostly the Lactobacilli type. The lacto term comes from the fact that this type of bacteria creates lactic acid. The lactic acid protects the fermented food from being invaded by pathogenic bacteria.

Hemp for Victory - 1942 USDA Full Film - Government Promotes Hemp

Hemp for Victory was a film released by the United States Department of Agriculture in 1942, urging U.S. farmers to grow industrial hemp for World War II. Of course, it was just five years earlier in 1937 when the anti-Cannabis campaign efforts of Harry Anslinger and the Bureau of Narcotics successfully culminated in the early stages of both hemp and marijuana prohibition.

Generating electricity using a candle and heatsink

Reukpower yet again presents a new DIY renewable energy technology that is sure to interest you. The thermo electric generator is capable of converting heat to electricity. Initially designed to charge a mobile phone, the TEG generates only enough power to power a small radio or some bright LED lights. The system is based on a Peltier cool and works in much the same way as thermoelectric solar generator. Whenever there is a temperature differential from one side of the Peltier to the other a small current is generated.
