How to Make Your Own Solar Panel
The last slide in a lengthy presentation was the one of most interest a depiction of Honda's idea of a house of the future. Along with ASIMO the robot, a help-mate for household chores, it featured Honda solar panels on the roof and a Honda home energy station to generate power from natural gas and provide hydrogen to power the FCX.
GoWesty also outfits the Syncro with larger, ventilated front brakes, which add increased stopping power and GoWesty-exclusive H&R German-made, progressive 2-inch lifting springs with Old Man Emu shocks on the fully independent suspension undercarriage reinforcement and skidplates an onboard compressed air system a solar-powered auxiliary battery and refrigeration system greatly improved front and rear lighting a custom double swing-away carrier for fuel, water, and a fullsize spare and creature comforts like Recaro seating, LPG interior furnace, deluxe awning, and a top-of-the-line DVD and stereo system.
Uiesel power is the driving force of goods moved by trucks in our economy. This proposal clearly envisions clean diesel power as the centerpiece of freight transportation in the clean-energy economy of tomorrow. While not a new concept to diesel engine and truck manufacturers, pursuit of greater fuel efficiency has always been a key driver of product development to meet customer demands. As we learn more atout the details of the proposal, it is expected that the proposed rule will likely expand the deployment of existing technologies and demand further innovation that recognizes the unique considerations of the trucking industry and commercial heavy-duty applications.
It's irrelevant that, depending on how their electricity is produced, electric vehicles don't come very close to living up to the zero-emission label they often receive. Also irrelevant is the point that batten' packs with enough capacity to power a vehicle for any significant range are prohibitively expensive today. That's because the trump card already has been played It's called government intervention. The Obama administration has started to unleash part of a planned 69 billion to thousands of clean-energy companies through tax credits, loans, and grants as well as to consumers, with a S7500 federal tax break for buying a car that has at least 16 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy stored in a batten' pack. Do you think it's a coincidence that the Chevrolet Volt's lithium-ion pack contains exactly that amount
The range of the coupe is 200 kilometres on a single charge, augmented by photovoltaic solar cells mounted in the roof and a power generating fan mounted in the front grille. Additional power comes frcm bright power-saving LED lighting, regenerative braking functions heat-absorbing window glass and Mitsubishi's
Wilson was the man Hughes put in charge of figuring out exactly what those technology transfers might be. An engineer, Wilson had worked on the GM Sunraycer, the solar-powered car that drove 1867 miles across Australia on the energy equivalent of 5 gallons of gas. But he was at the conference to talk about GM's electric-car program, which was taking shape back in Detroit
Toyota and the Clean Energy Partnership last week announced that Toyota has become a new international auto partner for the organisation. The move will add further impetus to CEP's programme of advancing sustainable mobility through the development of hydrogen filling stations and a fuel supply network in Germany.
Comfort more efficiently than warming the whole cabin. Navigation, Bluetooth, and a USB port are standard. Spending an extra 940 for the SL model adds a backup camera, fogiamps, automatic headlamps, and a roof-mounted solar panel to recharge the lead-acid battery (used to kick-start the Leaf's electrical systems).
During my week with the Tesla, I caught up with Al Reed, a mechanic who commutes every day in an electric Volkswagen Scirocco. The Scirocco's sixteen 6-volt lead-acid batteries have propelled him more than 45,000 miles and are charged by a 5-kW solar panel on the roof of his house, so his car is truly a zero-emissions vehicle. The converted Scirocco can go 35 to 40 miles on a full charge, but the best part is that it makes road rage a thing of the past. With a small range, limited power, and without the benefit of regenerative braking, the Scirocco teaches you to be a Zen driver and to make wise use of the juice. But Reed seems to have the speed bug, too he commutes in the Scirocco to offset the smog he creates by driving his classic muscle cars on the weekends. JC

Although it doesn't offer all the bells 'n whistles found on your iPhone or Palm Pre, the Renew mobile phone ( TBA, www.motorola.com) makes you feel good about helping the environment. The plastic housing is not only 100 recyclable, but is made from recycled water bottles. To offset the carbon dioxide created in manufacturing, distributing and even making calls from the phone, Motorola invested in renewable energy sources and reforestation. So, despite your gasoline indulgences, you can still be green and help the environment.

Below Solar panels used as sunroo s are already a production reality Using solar panels to convert the sun's energy into electricity is nothing new. It's a useful source of power, but as of yet they can't be used solely to power a car. They're more of a back-up to electric vehicles to help extend their range. Below Solar panels used as sunroo s are already a production reality
Getting Started With Solar
Do we really want the one thing that gives us its resources unconditionally to suffer even more than it is suffering now? Nature, is a part of our being from the earliest human days. We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
