It's premature to be talking about blooming spring flowers, but a Bloom of a different sort was in the news last week as fuel-cell maker Bloom Energy described its new Electron service. You can get a slightly different take on this development in our blog area. blog.eetweb.com/a-waste-of-energy/2011/01/20/bloom-off-the-bloom-box/

Wouldn't it be great if you could produce 12,400 W of heat power with an input of just 400 W? Well, two Italian researchers claim to have done exactly this through use of cold fusion.

A car fire in an electric vehicle is a completely different kettle of fish than an engine fire in an ordinary car. First responders, for example, must be warned against cutting into the 360-V lines connecting the battery to the electric motors.

That's why the DOE convened a workshop on how to keep SSL manufacturing in the U.S. It recently published a whitepaper outlining the results of the workshop and its conclusions. READ MORE Read More
