Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

The world’s first nickel zinc smart battery: An interview with Tim Hysell and Todd Higinbotham of ZincFive Inc.

ZincFive, Inc. has created the world's first nickel-zinc smart battery, a reliable and environmentally friendly alternative to many of the safety concerns associated with lead acid and lithium ion batteries.  Nickel-zinc will be only the fifth battery chemistry in history to globally scale. It was originally invented by Thomas Edison and was his dream battery chemistry, but he wasn't able to commercialise it. ZincFive has now done just that.

Intelligent transportation, traffic, data centers, automotive and telecom need safe battery backup to keep systems operating, even when the utility power dies. Nickel-zinc is being used right now in intelligent transportation systems across North America, replacing lead-acid batteries. The company is also close to developing the technology for applications in other mission critical industries.
