George Shultz ‘Walks The Talk’ On Clean Energy

Posted by admin on July 15, 2012 in Clean Energy with 7 Comments


For George Shultz, former U.S. secretary of state, Clean Energy is more than a policy issue. It’s personal. That’s one reason he drives an all-electric Nissan Leaf powered by solar panels on his home rooftop. “You’ve got to walk the talk,” says Shultz, who leads the Shultz-Stephenson Task Force on Energy Policy at Stanford’s Hoover Institution. He is particularly concerned about the impact of Global Warming on the lives of his great-grandchildren. “I’ve got to do what I can to see that they have a decent world,” he says.

Donald Sadoway: The missing link to renewable energy

Posted by admin on April 28, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 25 Comments


http://www.ted.com What’s the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage — so we can have power on tap even when the sun’s not out and the wind’s not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store Renewable Energy. As he says: “We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap.”
