    A LOAD OF RUBBISH

    Bio mass waste can be dried and burned for fuel in a gasifier to produce electricity. And the emissions are cleaner than oil or coal.

    Affordable Sustainable Homes Project

    I have blue prints and software analysis files of the building models. I do have an illustration of a solar business building I designed using the same principles. Without an architect drawing I am not sure what you would make of it. Let me go find it here. The floor plan with R Factor data, and the general illustration of the exterior is meant to go to my architect. The structures you see on the face of this building consist of solar panels and other structures. And there are software analysis files that go with the design. Underling thanks for the link.

    Thinking about Electricity Storage

    Beyond Battery Technologies This topic has some interesting views and considerations, to which I want to add something about high density Amp Hour storage for long duration without chemical electrolytes. And hence this is another technology to invest in that has a great potential to grow beyond battery technologies for the numerous merits listed below. http://www.evanscap.com/ Evans Capaterry Products "Capattery style super capacitors are designed for longer duration power hold-up and memory back-up applications. Full operating temperature range of -55C to 85C." ~ Evans Capacitor A salesman at Evans told me that the largest Capattery (a Super Capacitor) that they have made on special order was 300 Farads. Which is equal to 300 A hour at 1 volt. But these Capattery technologies can hold a much higher voltage than 1 volt. A 12 volt capacitor rated for 300 A hour is equal to a deep cycle marine battery. The Super Capacitor is capable of charging faster than a chemical battery. And does not require maintanance. And does not have toxic chemical waste such as sulfuric acid, nor lead, not lithium to worry about. Hence is environmentally friendly. It can last for 20 years or more and can hold a charge that long too ~ with little loss. According to a feature in the Federal Laboratory Consortium News Letter a fews years back. A new diamond deposit dielectric was invented that can make Super Capacitors of larger Farad values but smaller in size. And the diamond hard dielectric will hold up to larger voltages. Hence I am looking to see even more interesting Super Capacitor technologies. Anyways this will solve the problem with batteries for use in hybird electric automobiles and home grid tie battery banks. Which have no chemical maintanance and which last longer, as well as will not create a enviornmental problem. The only reason the Evans and other Super Capacitor companies are not making larger stock sizes than 1 Farad. Is that at the moment no one has created a demand. But demand will bring such things to market. You can inquire of what Evans can do, and also check out other potentially new emerging companies that make Super Caps. All you have to do is decide you want to invest into Super Capacitor technologies for green investments. And so, I would suggest that you keep an eye on this market and it's innovations and trends. And so, not always be looking at strictly battery technologies. I personally think these will make better batteries.
  4. The Green Work Shop Project D.R. Jackson Green Advertising And Marketing LTD 2058 Turkey Creek Rd. Barbourville, KY 40906 Current Project "Affordable Sustainable Homes" ~ aka sustainable cities project http://sustainablecitiescollective.com/green-work-shop/ I want to express the reason I found this network interesting to me. First of all I am a member of the (The NREL) "Alliance for Sustainable Energy's" Commercial Building Partnership Association (CBPA). And am now working on a project at the US DOE Energy Efficient Building Program web site. At the moment the web pages for my project are closed to public access. I submitted a pre proposal to NREL suggesting potential projects that I might want to develop in the future here. And so, I am working on one of those projects now. My pre proposal landed me in a closed forum hosted by the NREL. Anyways, after this experience, the DOE invited me to list my project at their Energy Efficient Building Program site to solicit public partnerships for a potential project. So I am looking for people as potential partners and collaborators, and investors. Who are interested in following one vision. I want to follow the DOE suggestion of a project that represents a "Market Ready Solution." As a green building project with renewable energy features. And the project must use locally available materials found in every local market. And must not incorporate untested new fab materials. Hence local materials found in every local market equates to Market Ready Solutions. Now there is a select kind of renewable energy technology that I have found is more affordable and more capable of producing a substantial amount of energy than wind or solar electrical systems. And thus is more capable of paying for itself in it's rated life time. In fact it can pay for itself up to three times in it's rated lifetime. And today, the rated lifetime of 20 years has been exceeded by 5 years. And so, it appears that the rated lifetime will now be listed at 30 years if all goes well. And since the original product came to market it has been improved. Hence we can not estimate the lifetime of the newer versions of the technology. At the moment I decline to provide Proprietary Data on what my chosen renewable energy system is.
