## How to Choose a Wind Turbine for Home Electricity

You’ve made up your mind to generate electricity with the help of wind power. Great. You’ve probably started your research and are weighing the financial requirements as well as the pros and cons of a wind generator. This article will introduce some of the technical terms and concepts involved.

## Natural Gas Drilling in Marsellus Shale Environmentally as Bad as Coal?

Can green living co-exist with shale gas extraction? People have started to voice their concerns about wells that use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to mine natural gas.

## Net Zero vs Net Energy for Net 0 Homes and Buildings

Net energy is the difference between the energy used to produce an energy resource and the quantity of energy derived from that product. Producing only the needed quantity of energy by a home or commercial building is net zero energy.

## Distillation of Ethanol for Home and Motor Fuel Blended Use

Use of alcohol as a motor fuel is for two reasons: 1. The process consumes some of the excess cereal grains; and 2. preservation of fossil fuels. A bushel (1 US bushel = 35.239072 liters) of cereal grains can be transformed to around 2.6 gallons of alcohol that can be used in gasoline-fueled engines

## Understanding Wind Ratings – Weibull Distributions and Raleigh Distributions

The most significant constraint of the wind force is the wind speed. For this rationale, understanding wind ratings via Weibull Distributions and Raleigh Distributions is very important. This article explains how to interpret Weibull and Raleigh Distributions for wind velocity.

## Formula to Calculate Wind Load

To prevent new construction and other structures from toppling in strong winds, architects and engineers have to calculate their wind loads. The wind load of a physical object is completely relative to its area.

## The Hydrogen Economy: Alternative Fuels that Require Fossil Fuels

Freeing ourselves from dependence on fossil energy will require a large-scale movement toward alternate energy forms. Nations need to make sure that the fuels selected are economically practical and don’t require a greater energy input, especially from fossil fuels, than the output energy obtained.

## How can You Safely observe the Sun?

Need to track or observe the position of the sun for your solar project? Wondering how to safely view the sun without damaging your eyes? This article will “shed some light” on the subject.

## New Lithium-Ion Technology may Increase Battery Storage Capacity 1,000 Percent

A familiar and common plant virus that ravages tobacco, tomatoes, and other plants, the stiff, bacilli-form Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) looks like raw spaghetti under an electron microscope. It is ironic that features of TMV could be harnessed to build components for advanced lithium ion batteries.

## Cobalt Phosphate Catalyst Enables Hydrogen Fuel from Photosynthesis

Don’t you think that mimicking plants to get energy like how we mimicked birds to fly would be a great idea? At the same time, we need to remember that it has to happen when it would be useful rather than being too late.

## The Main Types of Pollution on the Earth and the Promise of Renewable Energy

Pollution in the atmosphere is volatility, mayhem, damage, or uneasiness to the ecosystem. Preventing pollution has today become a major global concern. How far it can be achieved with renewable energy is a hot question. This article looks at relationship of these two concepts.

## Biodiesel from Used Motor Oil – Not Feasible

Biodiesel is produced by a chemical process known as transesterfication with the help of biodiesel processors. Nonetheless you will have to make your own processor since the large claims of some are not as useful as they claim to be.

## How to Tell if You need Flood Insurance

Most people think that their homeowner’s insurance policy also covers flood damage, but a common policy does not cover flood damage. You can add flood insurance to your home owner’s policy. This article tries to answer some of the common questions about flood risk for insurance.

## Problems Associated with using Biogas as a Motor Fuel

Biogas manufactured from organic material before being used as a fuel for motors has to be free of carbon dioxide and sulfide. Carbon dioxide has to be removed since it does not burn, and sulfide is corrosive in nature. This proves to be costly when considering biogas as a motor fuel.

## Wood Gasification for Motor Vehicles – What is Producer Gas?

Petrol rationing in WW II caused some people in the UK to convert their cars to run on producer gas from wood (charcoal) gasification, apparently with a bellows atop the car and a charcoal pit in the trunk. This article describes how the system worked.

## Why Should People Recycle? Does Recycling Work? Does it Save Energy?

Recycling, no doubt, is an artistic way of handling used plastic, aluminum, and paper, but some people justify this creativity as a means of sustainability. Does recycling make sense in general? Have you thought about how much fuel the garbage truck burns and how much reprocessing costs?

## How Aqueducts Work

The Romans greatly shaped the civil engineering of today. They were the first ones to realize what can be done with water. Building aqueducts to transport water was their extraordinary engineering feat that is used even today.

## Gasoline from Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide – Vanadium Nitrogenase Points the Way

Hello, wake up from your dream of running your car on air. Your dream may very soon become true…

## Removing Oil from Florida Beaches

Biodegradation of an oil spill, whether on beaches or in the ocean, is a normal procedure that gradually gets rid of oil from the aquatic and dry surroundings. But speedy elimination of spilled oil from seashores and lowlands is indispensable for minimizing damage to these sensitive habitats.

## What are Savings Bonds—How to Know Which Are the Best

Savings Bonds offer a safe and smart alternative to savings accounts; they are backed by the federal government, have higher interest rates, and are tax-deferred. Series EE and Series I Bonds are the two types of Savings Bonds offered, and when compared, Series I Bonds have performed better
