  • World needs clean energy revolution: UN chief
    Mai 3, 2010 - AFP

    UNITED NATIONS — Rich and poor nations need a "clean energy revolution" in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming, UN chief Ban Ki-moon said here Wednesday.

  • ISO Launches Renewable Power Web Tools on Earth Day
    Apr 22, 2010 - Business Wire

    How green is the grid? As of today, Earth Day, the public can view the level of renewable power that is helping keep the lights on.

  • 3TIER releases global solar dataset
    Feb 25, 2010 - Renewable Energy Focus

    A US-based provider of renewable energy assessment and power forecasting tools has completed a tool to identify and map the world’s wind and solar resources using a globally-consistent methodology.

  • The Renewable Energy Policy Network REN21 launched its Renewables Interactive Map  (beta-version)
    Jan 15, 2010 - REN21

    The Map contains a wealth of information on renewable energy, including support policies, expansion targets, current shares, installed capacity, current production, future scenarios, and policy pledges.

  • Energy data avaliable anywhere, any time
    Jan 8, 2010 - NREL

    Having rapidly established itself as a "go to" site for transportation and other related energy information, the Virtual Information Bridge to Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (VIBE) is expanding its reach to attract new users across the widest range of energy issues. A sister site to VIBE, called Open Energy Information, has been launched to allow organizations around the world to both post their own energy data and download data, for free.

  • Hybrid Solar Panels Combine Photovoltaics with Thermoelectricity
    Dec 30, 2009 - Larry Greenmeier - Scientific American

    Tar and shingles are hardly environmentally friendly materials, so the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hopes to soon help homeowners and businesses replace the roofs over their heads with something greener. To that end, the DOE awarded Weidlinger Associates, a New York City-based structural engineering firm, a $150,000 grant earlier this month (matched by a 10-percent commitment from the state) to develop durable hybrid solar roofing panels with integrated photovoltaic cells and thermoelectric materials that harvest the sun's energy to produce both electricity and hot water for buildings.

  • Combating climate change by observing the Earth
    Dec 30, 2009 - David Biello -

    As part of the U.S. charm offensive at the recent Copenhagen summit on climate change, a roughly one meter-diameter orb helped display a decade's worth of climate data collected by NASA satellites. "This is the golden age," NASA's Jack Kaye told me. As associate research director for the agency's Earth Science Division, he's "reaping the benefits of the 1990s."

  • NASA, Google offer more precise emissions tracking
    Dec 17, 2009 - Seth Borenstein and Michael Casey - The Associated Press

    The question is a potential deal-killer: If nations ever agree to slash greenhouse gas emissions, how will the world know if they live up to their pledges?

  • Monitor Climate Pledges on New UNEP Site
    Dec 14, 2009 - Stephen Meddenger, Porto Alegre - Treehugger

    The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) unveiled a new Web site that allows users to track the promises of countries to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. The Web site is currently following the pledges made by 27 members of the European Union and more than 25 other nations--and is updated as more proposals are made at COP15. The executive director of UNEP, Achim Steiner, said that from now on anyone can follow, from the comfort of their own home, plans and policies of governments in the area of combating global warming.

  • Science Museum unveils climate change map showing impact of 4C rise
