Here's what I'm reading while getting caught up on the rest of the world:
- Lots of folks are psyched about biofuel from algae. Here's the latest technology that uses a vertical system of growing algae in long rows of rotating plastic bags. While a pond has a limited amount of surface area for algae to grow, this mechanism has a lot more surface area.
- Ohio just passed a renewable energy standard that requires the state to get 12.5 percent of its energy from renewables by 2025. That may not sound like much, but Ohio's a major industrial state that ranks fourth in the amount of electricity it uses. The Buckeye State is the 25th state (plus the District of Columbia) to enact a mandatory renewable energy standard, meaning that a majority of the country (including DC) now has standards for clean energy!
