  • Algae Biofuel
    ...algae fuels are an alternative to commonly known biofuel sources, such as corn and sugarcane. Several companies and government agencies are funding efforts to reduce capital and operating costs and make algae fuel production commercially viable...Read More. 
  • Biofuels
    Biofuels are combustible fuels created from recently living plant matter as opposed to ancient plant matter in hydrocarbons.  The term biofuel is usually used to reference liquid fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel that are used as replacements for transportation fuels like petroleum, diesel, and jet fuel. 
  • Crops and Solar Energy
    Farmers in Japan can now generate solar electricity while growing crops on the same farmland. In April, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) approved the installation of PV systems on existing crop-producing farmland. Previously solar generation on farmland, productive or idle, was prohibited under the Agricultural Land Act.
  • Renewable Biofuels
    ...Our current levels of consumption, resource usage and seemingly ever increasing pollution calls for drastic changes. One of the areas of highest hopes for curbing some of these earth damaging areas is biofuels. This special type of fuel is derived from biomass, so it has been helping to lessen our dangerous overdependence on petroleum based fuels which are not only not renewable, they are also among the top polluters of our planet...Read More. 
  • Wind Power
    Wind power is the use of air flow through wind turbines to mechanically power generators for electric power. Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, consumes no water, and uses little land. The net effects on the environment are far less problematic than those of nonrenewable power sources...Read More.
  • Wind Power Plants
    When the wind, a natural form of energy, is capable of creating electricity or a mechanical force, this is wind power. Find out how wind farms work, those devices that are capable of turning the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical energy and supplying increasing numbers of homes with clean, renewable energy.
