Wind Energy
Responsibly harvesting power from wind. Humans have been harnessing wind power for more then two millennia and wind turbines are generally considered to be among the most sustainable methods of generating electricity. In addition to electricity generation wind turbines have long been used to move water...

Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles are considered a more sustainable method of transport than fossil fuel powered vehicles. At this time most electricity is produced in unsustainable ways, but there are more sustainable ways to produce electricity being developed.

Solar Energy
Using sunlight to for generating energy. ## Photovoltaic Solar Panels The most common type of solar panel are photovoltaic solar cells, or PVs which convert sunlight directly into electricity. Photovoltaic solar cells range in efficiency from about 15 30% efficiency. ![Solare Panel Efficiency](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/35/Best_Research-Cell_Efficiencies.png/800px-Best_Research-Cell_Efficiencies.png) ###...

Energy
Ethically sustainable sources of energy for human use. For millennia societies have relied on animals, and sometimes other humans, to provide energy for transportation, agriculture, and manufacturing — and burned wood for heat-energy. In the last 150 years humans have used exponentially increasing...

Geothermal Energy
Using the heat from the Earth for energy. Geothermal energy is collected by circulating water through rock or pipes underground bringing heat to the surface that can be used to heat buildings and generate electricity. A geothermal heat pump can extract enough heat from shallow ground in most parts...

Earthship Biotecture
Earthship is a type of house built with natural and recycled materials with energy conservation in mind. It is designed to produce water, electricity and food for its own use. Earthship basic design principles take advantage of the existing natural phenomena of the earth, building with natural and re-purposed...

Energy Storage
Sustainable methods of storing energy over time. Many sustainable energy sources produce according to natural rhythms such as sunlight, wind, and precipitation. These cycles don't necessarily coincide with the times that humans need energy. Energy storage is therefor an essential part of most sustainable...
