  • A teacher talks to her students about what would happen if energy was like imagination. “What would happen if energy could come from anything? Or if power could go anywhere? Or if light could seek out the dark? What would happen if that happens? Anything.” As she speaks the answers to her questions are brought to life. Garbage flies through the air and is sucked up into a garbage powered generator or sorts. Turbines fly through the desert searching for people in need of power. Finally, street lamp bulbs grow wings and fly through the city looking for new places to light up. “Imagination is taking energy to new places.”

    Walmart Wave truck...today's number...$150,000

    I think Walmart likes profit...less $$ on trucks/fuel over a 20 year horizon means more profit...

    BTW: did you read the latest interview from Wright?

    Below is some of it...whole interview says he is committed to Cappy IMHO.
    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    Your powertrain includes a micro-turbine generator. Tell me more about that.

    Wright: It’s an engine that burns fuel and drives an electric generator that charges the battery. The interesting thing about a generator duty cycle for an engine is that it’s pretty hard work. If you want to run the engine at its most efficient speed and load, it’s actually pretty hard on the engine. If you were to take a little 4-cylinder car engine, they usually run about 5,000 hours for a car, so most of the time they’re not working very hard. If you take one of those engines and put it on a generator at wide open throttle and full power, you’ll be lucky to get five hundred hours out of it. If you look at stationary generators, conventional piston ones, a 30 kW stationary diesel generator will have a 4-cylinder Cummins engine, it will run 1,800 rpm, it’ll weigh 2,000 pounds and it’ll run for 10,000 hours at full power. That’s way too big and heavy to put in a vehicle.

    However, if you use a gas turbine for the engine, then suddenly it all changes. They run very much faster – the one we use runs at 96,000 rpm. The 30 kW generator assembly is about as big as a one-liter bottle of Coke. And the engine itself isn’t much bigger. That engine doesn’t have a lubrication system, it runs on air bearings and there’s only one moving part. So, that engine will run 40,000 hours at full power. That’s a big deal. The thing weighs 220 pounds in total, so it’s about ten percent of the weight of a stationary engine and it’s got at least four times the life of the heavy ones and forty times the life of the light ones.

    "The big winners are expected to be natural gas and plug-in hybrid vehicles, though diesel vehicles will still account for about 3 out of every 4 commercial vehicles on the road. But even the standard diesel trucks are making huge gains towards better fuel economy as private companies like WalMart seek ways to reduce transportation and fuel expenses with purpose-built hybrid trucks like the WAVE. Over the lifetime of a semi-truck, using CNG fuel can save as much as $150,000 per vehicle. WalMart employs some 6,000 trucks alone; now multiply those savings, and suddenly you’re looking at the next massive bonus for corporate executives!"

    Location Name: NRG Phoenix Corporate Office
    Category: Engineering
    State/City: US-AZ-Phoenix
    Type: Full-Time Salary
    # Openings: 3

    Position Description:
    Institutions, businesses and small island communities are increasingly seeking solutions to risks associated with electricity costs, with security of supply and resilience, and with carbon emissions and climate change. NRG Solar has three openings for Project Engineers and Technical Managers to lead hybrid-renewable generation projects from conceptual engineering, through permitting and construction to commercial operation, as part of a new Micro-grid Systems business stream. Typical projects integrate solar PV, wind turbine or other clean energy generation with conventional power systems such as diesel, gas engine or micro-turbine driven generators, and with energy storage and demand management technologies.

    DENVER, Colo. (June 15, 2014) – An extraordinary Grand County ranch near Kremmling, with original deeds signed by Teddy Roosevelt and William Taft, has just been listed by Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty. Dan Ritchie, the late University of Denver chancellor, owned and maintained the property until it was acquired by Aspen Ridge Ranch.

    The stunning 522-acre Aspen Ridge Ranch, located at 11394 County Road 11, Kremmling, is both historic and a modern-day environmental innovator. Recognized as a “Green Parade” winner by Grand County Living, the ranch guest house and yurt, as well as the infrastructure for a potential lodge, are all serviced with alternative energy sources, including the extensive use of solar, composting and a micro-turbine generator.

    "Concentrated solar is a mystery phrase to most people in the United States, but it's an important topic in the rest of the world. The concept is based on creating extremely high-output electric generators that run on turbines fired by steam. The steam is generated by using parabolic mirrors to focus the sun's rays on a tank filled with water."

    Barclays:

    Electric utilities… are seen by many investors as a sturdy and defensive subset of the investment grade universe. Over the next few years, however, we believe that a confluence of declining cost trends in distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation and residential-scale power storage is likely to disrupt the status quo. Based on our analysis, the cost of solar plus storage for residential consumers of electricity is already competitive with the price of utility grid power in Hawaii. Of the other major markets, California could follow in 2017, New York and Arizona in 2018 and many other states soon after. In the 100-plus year history of the electric utility industry, there has never before been a truly cost-competitive substitute available for grid power. We believe that solar plus storage could reconfigure the organization and regulation of the electric power business over the coming decade. We see near-term risks to credit from regulators and utilities falling behind the solar plus storage adoption curve and long-term risks from a comprehensive re-imagining of the role utilities play in providing electric power.

  • A trader's attempt to force down the price of a particular security by heavy selling or short selling. In the case of short selling, the trader then makes a profit by buying the stock cheaply to cover the short position. Bear raids are often carried out by large groups of traders together, since an individual trader might not have a large enough trade to influence market price significantly.

    Looks like Sternip is working for me again...drive it down again, and methinks more than me and the moonman will be there waiting to buy more....only 52 million shares left to cover....now, get back to work, and NEVER forget that I am laugh, laugh, laughing loudly in your hatless head...

    This practice is not allowed under SEC regulations....go figure.

    Thank you for that post...it appears to have been a bear raid....OMG, the shorts with 52 million shares orchestrated a huge drop and the SEC stopped the plan....all we need is a buyout rumor or a big order, or increase assembly, or executive order or, or, or....and 52 million squeeze...

    The rise throughout the day on volume shows the long interests are strons after hitting the numbers...despite the concert of fools. Prepare dry powder, as it appears shortie is desperate to drive it down to cover...

    "In addition, combining the alternative uptick rule with a circuit breaker strikes the appropriate balance between our goal of preventing short selling, including potentially manipulative or abusive
    short selling, from being used as a tool to exacerbate a declining market in a security and the need to allow for the continued smooth functioning of the markets, including the provision of liquidity and price efficiency in the markets. The circuit breaker approach of Rule 201 will help benefit the marketfor a part icular security by allowing participants, when a security is undergoing a significant i tra-day price decline, an opportunity to re-evaluate circumstances and respond to volatility in that security. We also believe that a circuit breaker will better target short selling that may be related to potential bear raids 1224 and other forms of manipulation that may be used as a tool to exacerbate a price decline in a covered security.
