December 3rd, 2017 | by Kyle Field

The Awair Glow is a tiny, night light–sized appliance that brings smart air quality monitoring to your home. It doesn't stop there, as it is also able to trigger actions to correct the issues. Awair sent us over a unit to review, so we took it for a spin over the course of a couple of weeks


The Future Of Electrified Trucks, A Discussion With Tesla Cofounder Ian Wright (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

December 2nd, 2017 | by Kyle Field

The Tesla Semi Truck announcement represents a head-on challenge to the way people move goods around the country, but Tesla is not the first to move into plug-in trucks — far from it. I recently had the opportunity to talk with Tesla cofounder Ian Wright, who has since moved on to start his own company Wrightspeed, which has been helping shipping companies slash their heavy-duty truck emissions for years with its hybrid powertrains. [Note: We also had a Cleantech Talks interview with Ian Wright in 2015 that's worth a listen

Stone Edge Farm — A Sandbox For Microgrid Development

November 24th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

It's understandable that many visitors to Stone Edge Farm's properties in Sonoma, California, would relish in the lush landscapes, expansive vineyards, and world-class wines produced there without even realizing that it was also one of the world-class test beds for microgrid development

November 19th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

We originally connected with the Go To-U team as we were planning our Cleantech Revolution Tour event in Berlin, Germany, and Wroclaw, Poland.

On paper, it appears that eMotorWerks' JuiceBox is the most advanced and intelligent Level 2 EVSE ("EV charger") on the market today. As such, we were excited for the opportunity to spend some quality time with the JuiceBox Pro 40 to see if it lived up to the hype


Boosted Boards Dual+ Generation 2 Review (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

November 5th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Boosted Boards is widely known as the leader in electrified skateboards. The very usable design — with 7 miles of range, an intuitive controller, and rider-friendly specs — made the first Boosted Board a winner off the line. It was more than capable as an around-town commuter board, a solution to the last mile for many transit riders, and perhaps most importantly, just a ton of fun to ride


sonnen Restores Power To Puerto Rican Communities With Microgrid Donations

November 4th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Tesla (and FEMA) have garnered most of the press for relief efforts aimed at restoring power to Puerto Rico. Certainly, Tesla and FEMA have been involved in relief action (and inaction), but they are far from the only players in the game. Others have also launched efforts to restore power to the island nation. Sonnen launched its Puerto Rico Energy Security Initiative (PRESI) with the specific aim to restore power to a number of communities around the island nation with microgrid technology.


Climate Launchpad Startup Spotlight: One Computer

Two Persian brothers operating out of Estonia aspire to compete with the likes of Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud computing game but don't want to buy any servers to do that. They have plans to utilize the massive amount of idle internet-connected computing power that charging smartphones represent. Put simply, they want to pay you to use your smartphone's processing power while you sleep
