Google's renewable energy search gets results
Waterloo Region Record
Google may not seem like an energy company, but it sure is acting like one. Through more than $1 billion in investments and through large contracts for renewable power, Google has become the most significant player in the energy business outside of actual energy companies and financial institutions. In total, it has an ownership stake in more than two gigawatts of power generation capacity, the equivalent of the Hoover Dam.

Making it easier to get permits will boost use of solar panels
Edmonton Journal
Solar panels are ideally suited for Alberta, Canada's sunniest province. And they are particularly effective because they tend to produce the maximum amount of electricity when demand is highest — on bright, hot summer days. But you have to look very hard to find arrays of solar panels in Edmonton. Collections of solar panels are relatively rare here probably because of high initial costs and regulatory hurdles.

Global News
In noisy, energetic New York City, the pilots of a spindly plane that looks more toy than jet hope to grab attention in a surprising way: By being silent and consuming little energy. This revolutionary solar-powered plane is about to end a slow and symbolic journey across America by quietly buzzing the Statue of Liberty and landing in a city whose buildings often obscure the power-giving sun.

Graphene, an advanced strategic high tech material
Global Research
You might've seen graphene in the news lately because of the incredible advances it's bringing about in the medical field, the energy sector, defense, and so on. And here's why: It's 200 times stronger than steel, thinner than a sheet of paper, and more conductive than copper. Researchers at the University of Manchester note it's "almost one million times thinner than a human hair."

More bases accepting solar power as an energy alternative
Air Force Times
Plans call for solar power to make up 58 per cent of the military's renewable energy capability by 2017, according to a recent report by the Solar Energy Industries Association. The Air Force expects to generate one gigawatt of renewable energy by 2016. Its goal is to have enough renewable energy to supply 25 per cent of all installation electricity use by 2025, Air Force officials announced last year.
