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

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 the director of CleanTechnica, the most popular clean energy website in the world, and Planetsave, a leading green and science news site. I've been covering green news of various sorts since 2008, and I've been especially focused on solar energy, electric vehicles, bicycling, and wind energy for the past few years.
