Quotes

"It's a much better driving experience. the cars are quieter, they're smoother, there's no pollution, you charge at home while you sleep and it's 1/10 the cost of gas. I can't come up with any better reason to drive" Garrett Brown, Mid-Columbia Electric Vehicle Association
...additional benefit, ordered arrays of oxygen vacancies might allow us to separate the material's electronic and thermal properties," said Chambers. "This would help us improve the performance of thermoelectrics, in either generating power from heat or for use in refrigeration."
"I think it's a great accomplishment for PNNL because it's really something that we can give to everybody. It's such a simple, unique, nice design that we have put on the web" said PNNL Scientist, Janine Hutchinson
...us to better understand exactly how strong they really are at the heights of wind turbines," explains Will Shaw, a PNNL atmospheric scientist. "Data provided by the buoys will give us a much clearer picture of how much power can be generated at specific sites along the American coastline - and enable us to generate that clean, renewable power sooner."
