  • Researchers' recipe: Cook farm waste into energy
    Researchers are studying how to make biofuels from farm waste, especially 'wet' waste, such as corn husks, tomato vines and manure, that is typically difficult to use. They have developed a fairly simple procedure, pressure cooking, to transport waste and produce energy from it. Cooking farm waste yields compact, easily transportable material that will not degrade and can be used in energy-producing plants, they say.
  • Comparing state solar policies to determine equation for solar market success
    Scientists have used statistical analyses and detailed case studies to better understand why solar market policies in certain states are more successful. Their findings indicate that while no standard formula for solar implementation exists, a combination of foundational policies and localized strategies can increase solar photovoltaic installations in any state.
  • Switching to vehicles powered by electricity from renewables could save lives
    Driving vehicles that use electricity from renewable energy instead of gasoline could reduce the resulting deaths due to air pollution by 70 percent. This finding comes from a new life cycle analysis of conventional and alternative vehicles and their air pollution-related public health impacts. The study also shows that switching to vehicles powered by electricity made using natural gas yields large health benefits.

Mission Statement

  • To excite and educate the American public regarding our energy options especially as they relate to the long term strength of our economy, our national security, and our stewardship of the environment.To accelerate the adoption of hydrogen and fuel cell based technologies as part of our nation’s overall energy portfolio, with an understanding of the role hydrogen does (universal energy carrier) and does not (independent energy source) play.
  • To make the message “stick” by developing a powerful, yet simple brand.

Newsflash

In May 2009, the Obama Administration announced that it would "cut off funds" for the development of fuel cell hydrogen vehicles, since other vehicle technologies will lead to quicker reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in a shorter time. The U. S. Secretary of Energy explained that hydrogen vehicles "will not be practical over the next 10 to 20 years".
