6.3.13 - The Navy Opens its First Solar Powered Electric Vehicle Charging Station! - "first solar EV charging station at Naval Support Activity Mid-South in Millington, Tennessee....Its stated goal is “to become the Navy’s premiere support installation by striving to maintain excellence in our facilities and services.” This EV charging station will produce enough electricity to give Mid-South’s fleet of 17 EVs a four-hour charge, with enough left over to sell back to the grid."
a collaboration between urban green energy and general electric (GE), the wind-powered station charges electric vehicles at rest stops and parking lots, feeding energy back into the grid when not in use.
Mitt Romney's VIdeo Job Application - "I Am extreme, contemptuous, scornful, uncompromising: I ignore facts, evidence, and science: And I dismiss opposition. And I believe in a man in the sky and if you don't believe in him, you are going directly to hell!!"
Back in January, Bloomberg New Energy Finance predicted that 2012 would be a low year for clean energy investments. Now it’s October, and the latest numbers prove their predictions right. Third-quarter 2012 global energy investments are five percent lower than the second quarter, and a full 20 percent lower than this period in 2011. What does this mean for energy jobs, and the development of renewables projects in the near future?
First there was concentrated solar power, and now Semprius, Inc. is pushing the envelope with the introduction of high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) technology. The company has just won a contract to provide the HCPV modules for a 200-kilowatt, $2.3 million demonstration project at Edwards Air Force Base in California, undertaken by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne. If the installation proves cost-effective, it will set the stage for additional installations at other U.S. military bases.
