- 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.
climate change by observing the Earth
Dec 30, 2009 - David Biello - ScientificAmerican.com
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
Google offer more precise emissions tracking
Dec 17, 2009 - Seth Borenstein and Michael Casey

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?
Climate Pledges on New UNEP Site
Dec 14, 2009 - Stephen Meddenger, Porto Alegre -
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
Museum unveils climate change map showing impact
of 4C rise
Oct 22, 2009 - David Adam and Allegra Strtton -
The British government today raised the political
stakes on climate
change when it published a new
map of the world that details the likely effects
of a failure to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
