Top 10 CleanTechnica Posts of 2011

December 31st, 2011 by  

 

I know we’ve got a lot of long-term readers here on CleanTechnica. Can any of you guess some of our top 10 most-viewed pieces of 2011? I’ll give you a few clues — 5 were in the Solar Energy category, 2 were in the Wind Energy category, 2 were in the Alternative Fuels category, and the top story was, well, a bit unique… it was filed under the Media and New Technology categories. OK, enough foreplay, here’s our Top 10 of 2011 list (based on pageviews):

  1. How Google is Making the Climate War Worse (Note that Google is a clear clean energy leader)
  2. High-Efficiency Solar Cells Getting More Efficient, Cheaper
  3. Award-Winning Inventor Makes Fuel from Plastic Bags
  4. U.S. Department of Energy Announces New Biofuel to Replace Gasoline
  5. 3D Solar Panels from MIT
  6. Wind Lens Triples Turbine Output
  7. About Wind Energy / Why Wind Energy
  8. Pull-Out Solar Power in a Handy Carrying Case
  9. Finally! A Low Cost Solar Panel that Can See in the Dark
  10. Solar Power Almost as Cheap as Natural Gas in Six States

If you missed any of those pieces, you might want to take a look at them — I think they’re all still worth a read.

I’m always curious if people have any favorite stories of the year. If you do, please drop us a note below!
