An Energy Windfall From Many Small Sources

An Energy Windfall From Many Small Sources  say scientists, reports Cheryl Katz at Yale 360. In a host of small waste sources, lies the potential of  powering cell phones to solar panels. Examples?

Computers feasting on their own exhaust heat. Super-efficient solar panels snaring lost thermal energy and recycling it into electricity. Cellphones charged with a user’s footsteps. Possible because of new advances in materials and engineering that allow harvesting these tiny sources of waste energy.

 

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.

One Response to An Energy Windfall From Many Small Sources

  1. Instead of continuing to run a salt-based water softener to soften our well water… we switched to an electromagnetic water conditioner! Works great so far! It’s called the ScaleWatcher 3 Star and can be read about online and at amazon.com It doesn’t put nasty salt into the ground water like so many water softeners do! Many states (such as California) are making salt-based water softeners illegal, due to the salt pollution that they cause within our groundwater! 😉
