A Vermont utility, Green Mountain Power, is offering Tesla Powerwalls to customers starting in January.
A lot of interesting conversation takes place annually at the SAE World Congress. The conference brings together heads of companies, scientists, engineers and people from many other walks of life. With so much diversity present at a single event, it's only a matter of time before some off-the-wall idea got bounced around for adamant attendees to duke it out.
Miss Electric (aka Shannon Arvizu, former ABG'er) and the EV Grrls are in the process of creating an eight-part web show in search of the cleanest, hottest cars of the future. The show puts the crew on a mission to inform the world about revolutionizing the way we drive.
If you're at all familiar with the hardcore environmentalist mindset, then you know that there is really no limit to how far you can take thinking about your impact on the world. Locavore, the 2007 New Oxford Dictionary's Word of the Year, for example, means someone who only (or mostly) eats food that comes from local sources.

BMW's CleanEnergy strategy has as a core goal, "establishing a solid hydrogen infrastructure in the United States." But we all know this is something that is likely decades away. Still, BMW decide
While wind turbines provide a clean source of energy, they still have a number of short-comings as well as vocal opponents who often come from the sore-sight front. San Francisco, which probably wouldn't have the space for a field of wind turbines anyway, is proposing to decrease the city's dependence on foreign oil by implementing turbines submerged underwater that would sit on the floor of the Bay. Preliminary studies say that San Francisco's tides and currents could generate enough power to l
In a story that sounds like it could have come from the county music press, Boone Pickens is getting some props. Pickens is not a famous banjo player but instead one of the founders of Clean Energy (the company calls itself North America's leader in clean transportation and refers to Pickens as "perhaps America's most outspoken advocate of natural gas as a transportation fuel").
