Natural Energy Park is not a toy but a well thought playground area for children that enables them to understand some basic principles of science and energy through interaction and possible outcomes. The model created by You Song Young, Jin Soo Yeon, Ahn Ho Sang, Lee Sung Jae from Hyundai Engineering and Construction encapsulates a number of key elements which makes study and play both a part of it.
Some people like traditional bulbs while some like CFL. Also Halogens are faster to light up while CFLs are slower. However, in a situation where you want the efficiency of energy while you still want to your bulb to light up instantly without waiting for those precious few seconds, then this new “hybrid” bulb from GE is your answer.
Research shows that companies (collectively) waste at least $2.8 billion a year on electricity charges. That’s a huge waste, which needs immediate attention from all of us. Now Microsoft Research is coming up with a new app that will help slash power wastage. Termed as the “sleep proxy system”, this application will allow access to all computers in an enterprise network, while staying switched “off” or in a “stand by” mode.
The Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) has officially permitted the usage of Google Energy as a utility. The internet search giant can now sell energy, but unlike other electricity providers, Google wants to go carbon neutral. The company plans to focus on building numerous solar panels and fuel cells to power its own infrastructure (which partially it already does), while whatever it generates extra, can be sold to the consumers. Not bad an idea.
With the varied complications in climatic changes and for a better environment, there have always been an eager approach towards the use of renewable sources of energy. One such energy is the wind energy and what we see here is the world’s largest wind farm, capable of generating 209 megawatts of power which approximately is the annual electricity consumption of 200,000 homes.
