Green Energy Republic: Overcoming the obstacles to microgeneration
In a four-part series we've been researching the barriers to generating independent renewable energy, and here we suggest some potential solutions to the problems. Week 2 - Finance People are motivated to install microgeneration systems for environmental, self-sufficiency and - with the arrival of the Feed-in Tariff - economic reasons, but a major barrier for many is the initial capital outlay. Microgeneration installations can cost between £4,000 and £25,000. Access to sums of capital of this size is not realistic for the majority of UK homeowners. So how do we get around this?

Searaser device promises "lowest-cost" offshore power
The inventors of the Searaser, an ocean-based pump that drives an onshore hydro-electric turbine, claim it can generate electricity at a rate of 1.5p per kWh – less than a quarter of the cost of other renewable sources and even lower than coal, gas or nuclear. Dartmouth Wave Energy, the firm behind the device, says the device is so simple to construct and maintain that it will only cost around £200,000 per unit, with a total capital cost of £1.2m per MW. ‘It only has four moving parts so is much better able to stand the rigours of being deployed at sea,’ Dartmouth director Geoff White told The Engineer. ‘It doesn’t need any oil ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why are "aunt" and "uncle", emplyed in a nonfamilial sense, used as terms of endearment and honorifics in so many societies? Any tips for getting rid of static electricity in big, furry dogs?

I'm thinking about upgrading my laptop and use it for amateur DJ'ing in parties. What software and hardware do you guys ...
