Is a Hydrogen Powered House Really Green? 3.4.2009 TreeHugger
Ron Monahan is trying build an energy efficient subdivision in Aiken, South Carolina, and a few weeks ago announced that he was going to build between one and four Net Zero houses, (homes create as much energy as they use over the course of the year) in the development. However, when I looked at the and the with their two car snouts, I really wondered what was the point, given the amount of energy it was going to take just to get there. So he has cranked up the volume to get a little more attention: He is going to power one of them with... ...

Black Sea Pollution Could Be Harnessed As Renewable Future Energy Source 16.3.2009 Environmental News Network
The Black Sea harbours vast quantities of hydrogen sulfide, the toxic gas associated with the smell of rotten eggs. This noxious gas could be used as a renewable source of hydrogen gas to fuel a future carbon-free economy, according to Turkish researchers writing in a forthcoming issue of the International Journal of Nuclear Hydrogen Production and Applications. The waters of the Black Sea contain very little oxygen. As such, the rare forms of life that live in the depths of the inland sea, so-called extremophile bacteria, survive by metabolising sulfate in the water. The sulfate fulfils a similar biochemical role to oxygen in respiration for these microbes allowing them to release the energy they need to live and grow from the nutrients they absorb ...

California Hydrogen Highway R.I.P. 12.3.2009 Gristmill
By Joseph Romm The are down for the hydrogen highway cul de sac -- literally. The future Ponches and Jons of the California Highway Patrol won't be policing the hydrogen highway. The false hope of a hydrogen economy is on its death bed. This dream was embraced and elevated by President Bush, who said in his January 2003 : With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome obstacles to taking these cars from laboratory to showroom so that the first car driven by a child born today could be powered by hydrogen and pollution-free. I have explained at length many times why the first car of child born in 2003 -- or the last car, for that matter -- will not be a hydrogen fuel cell car , most notably in my best selling ...

5 Ways to Power the Green Cars of the Future 10.3.2009 TreeHugger
Batteries, Supercapacitors, Hydrogen, Hydraulic Hybrids, Compressed Air... Personal transportation is a big part of our lives, but unfortunately the current system pollutes the air and disrupts the climate. Walkable neighborhoods, bikeable cities, and fast public transit can greatly improve things, but cars will also probably stick around for the foreseeable future. Engineers and scientists are working on new ways to make the green cars of the future go (the main challenge is with power storage - power generation is also crucial, but it's a whole other article). Let's look at some of the most promising technologies.... ...

No solar for smog city 4.3.2009 Gristmill
By Jonathan Hiskes Los Angeles voters yesterday rejected the Green Energy Good Jobs ballot initiative (AKA Measure B), according from the city clerk's office. The plan, which failed by about 1,000 votes, would have led to the installation of thousands of solar panels on rooftops and parking lots throughout the city. It would have required the city's energy utility to produce 400 megawatts of solar power by 2014, but it also would have required the utility's unionized job force to do all the work, which opponents saw as a bald power grab. We've reported on the plan's , and on the it. Stay tuned for more. ...
