This is a model of a powerplant that I made. You can see that natural gas is being burned to boil water which makes steam. The steam spins a turnbine which turns a generator to produce electricity. This is the pathway to electricity in almost every type of powerplant.+ More details

Last winter was one of the harshest, hitting millions of Americans with spikes in their winter utility bills. Unfortunately, here we are, one year later, facing yet another polar vortex. Meteorologists predict some of the coldest blasts of frigid temperatures over the next several days, which has energy experts worried about the impact on consumers’ utility bills, as well as on the reliability of the electric grid we all depend on. As Polar Vortex 2015 moves across the country, consumers could face spikes in electricity bills, with seniors on fixed incomes and lower income Americans hit the hardest. According to a recent survey, high energy prices already have forced more than 40 percent of low-income seniors to go without needed medical or dental care, and even to skip meals or shut off the heat on cold days. It may seem odd to be predicting another energy price spike since oil, natural gas and coal prices have all fallen recently. But it’s not the market that will be driving prices higher. It’s politics.

SSEPD has worked with Off Grid Energy to develop a battery/generator combination unit, that’s a similar idea to a hybrid vehicle. The battery element will provide energy to a property when the demand is low. As the demand increases or the battery requires recharging, then the diesel generator will kick in. Over night power will generally be provided by the battery, significantly reducing noise and C02 emissions through a shorter generator run time. The hybrid generator will soon be deployed into SSEPD’s generator fleet, and be used as our first choice generator. Future Networks are delighted to announce that the hybrid generator, was selected as a finalist at the UK Energy Innovation Awards 2015, in the category of best Environmental Impact Award. The results will be announced on 30th April 2015.+ More details

This project is the exploration how moss could be used as a source of renewable energy. Mentioned emerging technology is called biophotovoltaics (BPV) which uses the natural process of photosynthesis to generate electrical energy. The project is done by Elena Mitrofanova Scientific development: Paolo Bombelli Advisors: Luis Fraguada, Silvia Brandi, Alexandre Dubor collaboration: Ceramica Cumella Special thanks: Ivan Mitrofanov Green FabLab Barcelona team Guillem Camprodon Fabienne Felder Iker Luna+ More details
Please support this Kickstarter project to release film to public: http://www.kickstarter.com/profile/scalingwind Scaling Wind profiles people championing the vision of 20% wind energy in America & explores the primary barriers to this achievement. The purpose of the film is to communicate the importance of how today’s energy decisions will impact America’s future; educate policymakers and citizens about the viability of wind energy’s potential for the nation; explain how wind energy may contribute to America’s economic recovery; and inspire involvement from relevant stakeholders. These points are made through the stories of people who are working to guide our nation’s energy system onto a safe, cost-effective, and sustainable path. Please support our Kickstarter project to complete and release this film to the public domain!+ More details
