Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency
Reasons for having renewable energy and energy efficiency are simple. It helps the environment, saves you money, and makes you less dependent on energy providers. There are many products to help in your goal of energy efficiency in order to utilize the energy you have and save on that bottom line in the process. Some of the easiest are energy efficient lighting and window sealants. Living Organic showcases many great energy efficient providers products. The next level of energy efficiency is creating your own energy with renewable energy. The obvious choices are wind and solar energy. You can find all the items necessary to create your own renewable energy with these resources. Find a great deal on the available items from the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency categories listed below.
Advances in solar technology have made many DIY-friendly products available to consumers, several of which will be hitting the market for the first time in 2011. These include solar water heaters, solar battery charging stations, solar powered lights, photovoltaic shingles that provide supplementary electricity, solar heat pumps, and solar panel kits that generate primary home electrical service. Among the step-by-step projects is a solar water heating system you can build and install yourself for under $1000; simple thermosyphon solar heat collectors for barns and outbuildings; or "heat grabbers" that you can fabricate for $50 in materials and position below a south-facing window to provide auxiliary winter heat.
Concern over energy supply, costs, and environmental problems are not limited to those prepared to venture into the countryside to an off-grid life. Urban people—now the vast majority in the Western world—share the same fear about what lies ahead. The average North American family will spend over one quarter million after-tax dollars on energy in a lifetime.$mart Power shows homeowners that using less energy or adopting renewable-energy technologies is not about making drastic lifestyle sacrifices, nor is it expensive. In fact, energy efficiency often improves lifestyle through lower operating costs, a more comfortable environment, and increased disposable income.Richly illustrated, chapters include energy efficiency, space heating and cooling, community power, energy efficient transportation, photovoltaics, wind and bio-fuels, batteries, voltage regulation and inverters, solar water heating, and backup power.
Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation: How Silicon Valley Will Make Oil, Nuclear, Natural Gas, Coal, Electric Utilities and Conventional Cars Obsolete by 2030
The industrial age of energy and transportation will be over by 2030. Maybe before. Exponentially improving technologies such as solar, electric vehicles, and autonomous (self-driving) cars will disrupt and sweep away the energy and transportation industries as we know it. The same Silicon Valley ecosystem that created bit-based technologies that have disrupted atom-based industries is now creating bit- and electron-based technologies that will disrupt atom-based energy industries. Clean Disruption projections (based on technology cost curves, business model innovation as well as product innovation) show that by 2030:- All new energy will be provided by solar or wind.- All new mass-market vehicles will be electric.- All of these vehicles will be autonomous (self-driving) or semi-autonomous.- The new car market will shrink by 80%.- Even assuming that EVs don't kill the gasoline car by 2030, the self-driving car will shrink the new car market by 80%.- Gasoline will be obsolete. Nuclear is already obsolete.- Up to 80% of highways will be redundant.- Up to 80% of parking spaces will be redundant.- The concept of individual car ownership will be obsolete.- The Car Insurance industry will be disrupted.The Stone Age did not end because we ran out of rocks. It ended because a disruptive technology ushered in the Bronze Age. The era of centralized, command-and-control, extraction-resource-based energy sources (oil, gas, coal and nuclear) will not end because we run out of petroleum, natural gas, coal, or uranium. It will end because these energy sources, the business models they employ, and the products that sustain them will be disrupted by superior technologies, product architectures, and business models. This is a technology-based disruption reminiscent of how the cell phone, Internet, and personal computer swept away industries such as landline telephony, publishing, and mainframe computers. Just like those technology disruptions flipped the architecture of information and brought abundant, cheap and participatory information, the clean disruption will flip the architecture of energy and bring abundant, cheap and participatory energy. Just like those previous technology disruptions, the clean disruption is inevitable and it will be swift.
Air conditioner covers. This is the only ac cover that keeps the inside and outside completely unclogged from leaves and debris summer/all year (even when air conditioner is in use)....... Can be used for heater/pool pumps as well.. When leaves or debris decay they give off acidic gases that eat at your a/c unit's copper tubing, by making small holes that allow freon to escape, causing your compressor to fail........ Our covers extend the life of your unit by preventing rusting of parts by moisture being trapped inside . Trapped moisture is the main cause of failure to electronics, electrical connections, switches and metal parts. ........ PrmierAcCovers are durable and made of tough, synthetic fabric, pvc-coated polyester. 1/4 inch mesh, We offer a "Full 5 year manufacturer's warranty" 100% satisfaction guarantee within 30 days or we will refund your purchase price including shipping......... directions for quick and easy installation, ty-raps are included for easy access for tubing/electrical connections. 1/2" poly (500 lbs. break strength) strapping and buckle are also included for secure attachment. .....
This storm door bottom sweep is constructed from gray vinyl. It is used as a bottom seal on storm doors. This type of bottom sweep helps prevent air infiltration.
How Green are Electric or Hydrogen-Powered Cars?: Assessing GHG Emissions of Traffic in Spain (SpringerBriefs in Energy)
Have you ever wondered by how much CO2 emissions can be reduced by running cars electrically or with hydrogen as fuel? This Brief provides a quantitative answer to this question using the example of the combined road traffic in Spain. The authors calculate the resulting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the production of hydrogen gas or the required electricity and installing and maintaining the necessary infrastructure. In this way, they can compare with the GHG emissions in the present situation of oil fueled cars. Using different scenarios, they obtain an assessment how much ‘greener’ the electric or hydrogen cars can get.The method described in this Brief is scalable and readily adaptable to other countries. It can thus be used for investigating sensible approaches and developing recommendations for a conversion. As expected, the results depend strongly on the production scenarios for hydrogen or electricity production. The wrong choice can even result in increased GHG emissions. A proper choice of the roadmap toward a more sustainable and greener future is of greatest importance – the results described in this Brief can serve as a valuable and useful guide on our way.
