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.

Over 90 percent of US power generation comes from large, centralized, highly polluting, nonrenewable sources of energy. It is delivered through long, brittle transmission lines, and then is squandered through inefficiency and waste. But it doesn't have to be that way. Communities can indeed produce their own local, renewable energy."Power from the People" explores how homeowners, co-ops, nonprofit institutions, governments, and businesses are putting power in the hands of local communities through distributed energy programs and energy-efficiency measures.Using examples from around the nation - and occasionally from around the world - Greg Pahl explains how to plan, organize, finance, and launch community-scale energy projects that harvest energy from sun, wind, water, and earth. He also explains why community power is a necessary step on the path to energy security and community resilience - particularly as we face peak oil, cope with climate change, and address the need to transition to a more sustainable future.This book - the second in the Chelsea Green Publishing Company and Post Carbon Institute's Community Resilience Series - also profiles numerous communitywide initiatives that can be replicated elsewhere.
Authors have tried to strike a balance between a short book chapter and a very detailed book for subject experts. There were three prime reasons behind doing so: first, the field is quite interdisciplinary and requires simplified presentation for a person from non-parent discipline. Second reason for this short-version of a full book is that both the authors have seen students and technically oriented people, searching for this type of book on wind energy. Third reason and motivation was considering engineers who are starting their career in wind industry. This book is targeted to present a good starting background to such professionals.
Perfect for professionals, students and instructors the Architect's 5-watt LED desk lamp by Newhouse Lighting is engineered and designed to bring your desk or work area into the 21st century without breaking the bank. LED Lighting is the future of lighting as LED lights consume up to 90% less power while putting out the same amount of lumens (light). LEDs emit virtually no heat (due to their efficiency) hence no more sweating under your old inefficient desk lamp. This LED desk lamp by Newhouse Lighting glows at a very warm and soft 3,200K, maintains and on/off switch in the base and is ETL certified. Consuming less energy equals reduced power bills. It's time to start working or studying more efficiently. (Note: the bulb is not replaceable, but at 35,000 hour rated life run time, who cares!). NOTE: A 35,000 hour run time means at using this lamp 3 hours/day, it will last 11,666 days or about 32 years without needed to replace it!

Sunshine may be abundant and free, but converting it into a usable form of energy is expensive. Investment decisions, funding of research and development, and commercial applications all rely on economic analysis. This book reviews the spectrum of economic methods that have been developed from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s to analyze the feasibility of solar systems and shows how the use of these techniques has influenced federally sponsored research, development, and demonstration programs. There is a strong emphasis on the use of methods and modeling in studying policy alternatives. The book also reviews applications analysis, net energy analysis, and cost requirements for active and passive heating and cooling, for electric power generation, and for industrial process heat. The change in the costs of solar systems over time is one indication of program success, and the book includes a useful summary of the cost histories of various solar programs.
