Worldwide sales of cars to touch 2 billion by 2050: reports
February 18, 2011
Research firm Automotive Insight's latest report 'Electric Vehicles: Energy, Infrastructure and the Mobility Market in the Real World', says that even as the global car population doubles to over two billion (with countries such as China becoming motorized), the proportion that electric cars will account for remains unclear.
Snug and Tight
February 17, 2011
Passive houses are airtight buildings that use heat from appliances and even the occupants' bodies for warmth. They have thick insulation, are oriented to maximize winter sun and use a heat exchanger to warm outside air that circulates throughout. The result is a house that needs little or no extra energy for heating, even in very cold climates.
The American House: Where Did We Go Wrong?
November 11, 2010
When considering where things have gone wrong with the American house, editor at large Kevin Ireton says that accessibility to inexpensive fossil fuels led us astray. With the advent of electricity at the turn of the century, American homes could be outfitted with electric lights; then electric appliances found their way into homes.

Common metabolic engineering works to reduce cellular energy consumption (for example, to reduce the energy cost of cell multiplication or proliferation) and waste. Production of beer, wine, cheese, medicines and other products of biotechnology often engineering.Cells with metabolism are complex systems of genes and the regulation can drastically affect the cells ability to survive. Therefore, the balance at the interest engineering.The metabolic metabolic engineering of the demands of the market potential in the best methods, driven by strains is that the production increase can develop useful metabolites formed.
UC receives grant for nuclear engineering
July 18, 2010
The University of Cincinnati will soon have a program to study nuclear engineering, thanks in part to a grant from the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).
The $118,342 grant will allow the university to develop a nuclear engineering track for students in the mechanical engineering technology major in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
