High-Tech Programmable Thermostats

A couple of buy viagra pill high-tech programmable thermostats are starting to draw a lot of attention for raising the bar for both style and samples viagra cialis user friendliness. Proper use of a programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to control your home energy usage and reduce energy costs, and these new thermostats can make it easier than ever to accomplish this.

Both the ecobee and the buy cialis china Nest thermostats come in stylish packages that offer wireless connectivity, user-friendly interfaces, and online access and mobile apps to let you control your system remotely.

The Nest thermostat is designed to learn and adapt itself over time, so that your house is at the temperature you want when you want it without having to online ordering viagra fuss with reprogramming it. The ecobee web interface also gives you energy reports so you can see when you are using energy.

Both thermostats are priced in the range of a few hundred dollars, which is buying propecia without a prescription more than the average programmable thermostat, but they offer more features and easier accessability, which presumably should translate into greater energy savings. If using one of these thermostats helps save as much energy as they claim, either one would be well worth the investment, and should pay back its cost with energy savings within a couple of years.

Increased Efficiency with Folding Shipping Containers

Shipping containers are intriguing artifacts of global consumer culture. While they are meant to be reusable, there is such an imbalance of trade that frequently they do not return to their country of cialis mexico origin, and shipping empty containers is inefficient for the shipping lines. So, while a small number of the containers end up being re-purposed, many more do not.

To address this problem, the Staxxon container can be folded up small enough that five empty containers will fit in the space normally filled by one ordinary container. Because the Staxxon containers are as strong as conventional containers, and since they can be moved and handled without changes to how containers are normally handled, they have the order prescription cialis potential to make inroads in the shipping industry.

Several stacked containers are no heavier than a full container, so there are no special handling requirements in that regard, and operationally, fewer crane lifts and buy discount cialis online truck trips would be needed to move bundles of empty containers, so there are time and energy efficiencies to be gained with the adoption of these containers.

Electric Plane Flies 200 Miles in Two Hours, Wins NASA Challenge

Pipistrel-USA, a team from Pennsylvania has won the NASA CAFE Green Flight Challenge by flying an electric plane 200 miles in less than two hours.

The Google-sponsored contest was created to viagra from mexico spur development of electric airplanes and efficient aircraft designs and with a first-place prize of $1.35 million, it could very well succeed at that.

The contest took place at the Sonoma County Airport in California and required entrants to fly 200 miles in two hours while using less than one gallon of fuel per occupant or the electricity equivalent. Pipistrel-USA's plane, the Taurus G4, had two occupants and used less than a two-gallon equivalent of cheap canadian cialis electricity.  Check out the video above of a flight demonstration of the Taurus G4.

Both the winning Pipistrel-USA and the second place team flew electric airplanes. Only three teams out of 14 that registered met the contest's requirements.

Computer Energy Efficiency Doubles Every 18 Months


A new study done by an engineering professor at Stanford University has found that the energy efficiency of computers doubles roughly every 18 months, and has done so since the viagra 20mg very first general purpose computer, the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) that was built in 1956.

With help from Intel and cialis overnight delivery Microsoft, Professor Jonathan Koomey was able to gather information about computing devices from 1956 until now and with this new finding, Koomey is revising and improving Moore's law -- the observation that computer processing power doubles every 18 months.  Fortunately, the things that contribute to that power improvement (reducing component size, capacitance and communication time between them) also increase energy efficiency.

This finding has great implications for the future of computers and battery-powered devices.  As we constantly increase the performance power of computers and gadgets, we'll be improving their energy efficiency as well -- a much needed trend as we become more reliant on our portable devices.

Also, theoretically, we're far from the limit of www.chopperssportsgrill.com how much electricity we can save.  In 1985, physicists projected that we could improve computer energy efficiency by a factor of 100 billion and since then we've only hit a factor of about 40,000.

U.S. Army Forms Renewable Energy Task Force


Over the past few years, the U.S. military has worked on one renewable energy project after another -- and it's to their benefit.  Not only does it cut down on energy costs at military bases, but it's also a reliable source of energy in locations where getting fuel shipments can be dangerous at best.

The U.S. Army has decided to become more organized in its renewable energy pursuits by creating a task force assigned purely to developing these projects.  The Energy Initiatives Office Task Force will work with developers over the next decade to build renewable energy power plants at U.S. military sites.  The task force has a 10-year budget of up to viagra in uk $7.1 billion.

The task force will be established by September 15 of this year and will assist the Army in its goal of getting 25 percent of its energy from renewables by 2025.  The projects will each be about 10 MW in size, though details of which type of viagra non prescription renewable energy will be used and cialis online us]non generic cialis where have not been disclosed.
