Fueling Stations of the Future Here Now

Wind and solar energy are being harnessed and integrated with electric vehicle chargers, heralding the coming end of the “Fossil Fuel Era” and the onset of a new age of sustainable, renewable power and fuel for transport. Two news items this past week– one regarding the Sanya Skypump and another regarding Envision Solar Trees– foreshadow what’s to come.

Offshore Use of Vertical-Axis Wind Turbines Gets Closer Look by Sandia Labs

Do the best offshore wind turbines operate with a horizontal or vertical-axis mechanism? That question is being reexamined by Sandia National Laboratories’ wind energy researchers, who are now re-evaluating vertical-axis wind turbines (VAWTs) to help solve some of the problems of generating energy from offshore breezes using horizontal-axis wind turbines (HAWTs) […]
