Kikkerland Solar Radio

shop
Batteries not included... or required $35.00

From reliably inventive Kikkerland Design comes the Solar Crank Radio, a wee little radio receiver that has two power options, neither of which involve batteries. You can manually power the device using the small crank on the side--one minute of cranking gets you a half hour of transmission--or you can leave it outside and let the sun to the work--a full solar charge provides up to 7 hours of......read more

Billionaire-Backed Company Unveils Asteroid Mining Plans

read
Planetary Resources looks to expand our resource base to include the solar system

In a press release that reads like sci-fi writing, a startup called Planetary Resources announced plans to identify, explore, tag, and finally mine asteroids for materials ranging from precious metals to water. The audacious venture is an attempt to locate and exploit a sustainable resource supply for  Earth's ever-growing population. "Many of the scarce metals and minerals on Earth are in......read more

In a Haze: Samantha Casolari Photography

read
Recent work from the Brooklyn-based photographer.

Samantha Casolari's career as a photographer occurred by coincidence. Born in Italy, Casolari moved to Madison, Wisconsin at the age of 20 on a student exchange. Overwhelmed by culture shock, Casolari took refuge in the library, where she spent long hours pouring over photography books. Those lonely days inspired a new career shooting photos. Now living in Brooklyn, Casolari works as a......read more

Solar Power From Space?

read
Japanese government plans to capture solar energy in space and send it to Earth via laser or microwave by 2030.

The Japanese government recently chose a group of companies and research teams who are assigned to achieve this ambition, a dream worth billions of dollars, to produce clean energy in an unlimited amount in the next few decades. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) hopes that the ambitious plans will help ease the country’s energy problems as well as provide a solution for global......read more

Geothermal Gets a Boost from Oil and Gas Drilling

read
'Forgotten' clean energy industry growing with help from fossil fuel well data

Kate Galbraith for The New York Times: Geothermal energy — tapping into heat deep underground and using it to produce power — is sometimes described as a forgotten renewable. It languishes in the shadows of better-known sources like wind and the sun, and in 2011 it accounted for less than 1 percent of electric power worldwide, according to last year’s World Energy Outlook. Yet......read more

Renewable Fuel From Geothermal

Icelandic company creates methanol by capturing carbon dioxide from a geothermal power plant

In Iceland, volcanic activity powers the island nation's geothermal energy industry. Now it's also helping to create renewable fuel. Rekyavik-based Carbon Recycling International (CRI) produces liquid methanol by capturing and recycling carbon dioxide from a geothermal power plant on the the southwest part of the country. The first commercial shipment of the fuel, sold under the Vulcanol brand......read more

Dan Holdsworth: Geothermal Power Plant

read
Otherworldly photos of an Icelandic geothermal plant.

Geothermal power is like the neglected stepchild of renewable energy, seemingly always left in the shadows while the press (ourselves included) spouts off on the latest solar and wind projects. With these awe-striking images of a geothermal plant in Iceland, from London photographer Dan Holdsworth, we hope to give some shine to renewable energy's forgotten form. Like all of Holdsworth's......read more

Central America's Geothermal Potential

read
Region beginning to tap seismic volatility for electricity needs.

The entire length of Central America is dotted with active volcanoes, a geographic fact that can have disastrous consequences for people in the region. But it also presents a positive opportunity, in the form of geothermal energy potential. And it's beginning to be realized. Geothermal power plants harness energy from water that is heated by molten rock beneath the volcanos. A reliable......read more
