    Blogpost by laurak - 27 February, 2009 at 14:48

    This parody ad being run in the United States by Reality is genius:

    It's directed by the Coen brothers and is a response to heavy advertising by the coal industry in favour of 'clean coal'. There is also a great animation on Reality's main site with a ... Read more >

  • Concentrating Solar Power

    Blogpost by Martin Lloyd - 24 February, 2009 at 15:10 4 comments

  • China builds a wind turbine every two hours

    Blogpost by Martin Lloyd - 18 February, 2009 at 11:33 3 comments

    Last year China added 6300MW of wind generating capacity, just about doubling their wind power capacity. Assuming 1.5 MW wind turbines that means China is adding a new wind turbine to their electricity grid every two hours.
