Chance to Win Vespa! (from Wind Power Innovator)

Energy costs just keep on rising, with only short respites that allow us to stay complacent to pending environmental and energy shortage crises.

This has an effect on all of us every day. Even if we don’t drive and we power our house with clean energy sources like wind and solar energy, which use “free” fuel, the prices of everything are affected by rising dirty energy prices. Transportation of goods and electricity costs rise for most people and businesses, and those costs are passed on to everyone.

But, if we jump on the clean, green energy bandwagon now, at least, we can at least revel in our own electricity and transportation savings.

North Sea Wind Farm Proves Beneficial to Local Fauna

New research into the effect offshore wind farms have on the local habitat have provided striking results, given many of the assumptions made about such wind farms without scientific evidence. According to scientists, a wind farm in the North Sea actually has a beneficial effect on the local fauna.

Do You Have a Sauer Energy Wind Turbine Yet?

Now, you may or may not know, other than working on Planetsave, the place I spend most of my time is working on CleanTechnica, our sister site dedicated to covering topics such as wind energy, solar energy, and energy efficiency. I actually was not much of a tech guy just a few years ago, but I started writing on there two summers ago and slowly became obsessed. Now, I’m considered an expert in the field.

7 Google Clean Energy Investments

Google is a clean energy leader (if you haven’t heard). It’s made a number of big clean energy investments in the past year or two and I recently decided to compile a little list of 7 of its biggest over on CleanTechnica. Check them out…

Facebook's New Logo — Which One's a No-Go?

Back in February 2010, Greenpeace called on Facebook to unfriend coal and embrace renewables to power their massive data centers, giving them a deadline of April 22 (Earth Day) of this year. Since then, over 600,000 Greenpeace supporters have called on Facebook to take action and according to Greenpeace International Executive Director, Kumi Naidoo, Facebook is listening (atleast the founder’s sister, Randi Zuckerberg is).

Wind and Waves Growing Worldwide

New research out of Australia has shown that oceanic wind speeds and wave heights have increased dramatically over the last twenty-five years. The results stem from the most comprehensive study of its kind ever undertaken, which looked at satellite data dating from 1985 to 2008.
