Solutions for Green Chemistry
Energy infrastructure includes sourcing raw feedstock, the refined production of energy, delivery to the end user, productive use of the energy and managing the waste or byproducts of energy use.
Distributed energy resources are small-scale power generation technologies ranging from 3 to 10,000 kW so they can be located close to homes or businesses to provide alternative or enhanced utilitiy electric power systems.
Net metering is an electricity purchasing policy by utility companies for consumers who own renewable energy facilities such as wind, solar power or home fuel cells and want to sell excess energy generation to the utility grid.
Conference on the Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources
Conference on Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources is sponsored by Sandia National Lab, US DOE, Natural Resources Canada and other renewable energy agencies.
Green Tech Connect Forum, Pasadena, CA Aug 3-4, 2009
South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) will present the Green Tech Connect Forum in Pasadena, California.
Distributed Energy Grid
Distributed Energy Grids include renewable energy generation at homes, offices and citywide facilities. The grid of wires or pipes required to take energy from the point of generation to the point of use is a critical link in renewable energy commercialization.
EVs - Electric Vehicles
EVs - Electric Vehicles have been in development for decades, but 2010 is begins the commercialization trajectory of this new age in transportation in cars, trucks, trains and even ships.
EV Charging stations
EV Charging stations are energy infrastructure for the growing fleet of electric vehicles that must be recharged at stations that vary from home-based plugs to parking lot and commercial networks of electricity recharging stations.
Smart Grid infrastructure embeds information in energy production, distribution and use by monitoring and tracking energy as it moves from generation to use in buildings, lighting, transportation, etc.
Battery Technologies to Store Energy
Battery technologies to store energy from distributed power generation are being commercialized to supplement the smart grid. Batteries can store energy for use at low-generation times, often called off-peak times.
Solar thermal energy (STE) harnesses solar energy for thermal energy (heat) for hot water, energy generation or space heating. Solar thermal collectors are defined by the USA Energy Information Administration as low, medium, or high temperature solar thermal collectors.
Interconnection of energy sources, transmission and usage is being engineered with the smart grid system.
Utility Scale Green Energy Generation
Utility Scale Green Energy Generation provides the greatest efficiency -- not only will this reduce fossil fuels, but will optimize efficient generation, if not distribution.
Energy security is a national security issues as well as a company risk management and economics challenge as natural resources fluctuate in price and availability.
Obama and G-20 Reaffirms Commitment to Cut Fossil Fuel Subsidies
Phasing out fossil fuel subsidies is important because it encourages energy conservation, improves our energy security, helps us meet budget goals and provides a critical down payment on our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A gradual multilateral removal (by 2020) of existing fossil fuel subsidies could result in global greenhouse gas emissions dropping by 10% by 2050 relative to what is otherwise expected.
Renewable Energy Infrastructure
Infrastructure is the shared distribution system of electricity, water, highways, fuel and gasoline... even education and taxes that support our shared capital. Smart infrastructure makes us economically competitive, saves individual costs and supports business and economic development. We help job seekers, small businesses and communities find practical infrastructure solutions.
