    They run on methanol (next best thing to hydrogen…seeing as you can easily purchase these now) which is produced naturally in plants like cotton
    The easily portable 2200 provides 90W (enough for a laptop) and i think the m28 cartridge could charge one’s laptop continuously for 2500 hours (and that’s without attaching solar/wind into the mix). It’s a little less than $10,000 and available through Amazon

    and here is an even more baddass/efficient hydrogen charger but on a smaller scale (Horizon is helping the hydrogen market bigtime and does have larger scale products)

    awesome 

    combine this with the new obama tax credits for solar power and you have money coming back to you in just a few years (or less).

    ¨Englert Environmental has unveiled an integrated metal roofing system that can deliver much of the energy, heating and water needs of the average American home without tapping into local utility resources.
    The new rooftop system provides electric power, hot water heat and water for outdoor and indoor uses all in a single package.
    Englert’s UltraCOOL Energy Star and LEED compliant standing seam metal roof system is a pivotal component in providing electric power and thermal heat as well as rainwater for lawns and landscaping, vehicle cleaning and laundry and toilet flushing.
    Resource-saving technologies included with a single Englert standing seam metal roof include:

    + Englert’s SunNet solar standing seam roof with Building Integrated Photovoltaics using quarter-inch thick laminates that are virtually invisible and provide all the electric energy the average home requires year round.

    + A solar thermal system mounted under the Englert Solar standing seam roof which draws heat from the roof and transfers it to the home’s hot water system. The roof and thermal technology are self-regulating, preventing overheating and can even be used to heat roofs to rid them of snow and ice.

    + Three rainwater harvesting solutions that integrate Englert’s Kynar-coated standing seam roof, Englert LeafGuard and Gutter Tunnel leaf protection systems and three compact residential rainwater harvesting kits that capture 225, 400 and 1,700 gallons of water for non-potable uses including landscape irrigation, vehicle cleaning and non-potable household uses such as toilet flushing and laundering.
    The Englert Kynar-coated roof does not leach and Englert’s line of leaf protection systems including LeafGuard and Gutter Tunnel eliminate much of the debris that channels into conventional gutter systems before it reaches the filtering systems and containment tanks included in surface and underground rainwater harvesting systems.
    A single Englert Environmental-sponsored project utilizing all of its metal roofing, rainware and solar photovoltaic and thermal technologies can earn more than 15 U.S. Green Building Council LEED credits.
    Englert Environmental projects also qualify for federal renewable energy investment tax credits, state-specific financial incentives including rebates, incentives, grants and state credits, accelerated depreciation tax benefits, Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s) and net income from electric power purchase agreements.
    All of the roof-related technologies can be incorporated during new construction or as retrofits to existing homes and are perfect for light commercial applications as well.¨

    algae solutions 

    this seems like a great idea for it not only creates fuel but also utilizes removal of CO2 from our atmosphere in the process. two birds, one algea (or i guess a few strands). i have seen this stuff for years at festivals like dreamtime and sustainable fairs. i think we are starting to see the main stream catch on a little:

      This is great. Algae, fungi, what are the differences? Cuz both seem to me that they need to be more integrated into human living.
