Affordable, Scalable Clean Energy Storage and Reuse
A Revolution for the Hydrogen Economy?
Clean Tech Trends
An exciting new discovery has been made by Canadian scientists that would allow the electrolysis of water for hydrogen generation. The discovery would allow renewable energy to be stored and reused at a cost of 1000 less than technologies previously developed.
One of the biggest impediments to affordable renewable energy use on a mass-scale has been timing. Peak use does not necessarily coincide with peak production of wind and solar energy, and storing the energy has not been an affordable option.
Such energy is clean and renewable, but it’s available only when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. The new technology opens the door to homeowners and energy companies being able to easily store and reuse solar and wind power.

Categorizing Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
By John Whitney, AIA
What circumstances make hybrid power systems reasonable, economical, and/or highly desirable?
This is a work in progress, but I would like to achieve more clarity in my thinking about hybrid renewable energy systems. Here’s what I’ve got so far (I’m looking for feedback):
By their very nature, hybrid energy systems are developed to solve a problem with a stand-alone generation system. The problem can be situational (remote location makes access to conventional fuels and power grid difficult or impossible) or it can be a system-specific shortcoming (i.e., the intermittent nature of some renewable generation technologies). Additional stimulus for their use may include environmental (desire to lessen impact of conventional generation plant), or economical (use of multiple energy sources to drive a shared generation technology and transmission access) motives.
