WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced the completion of a successful, unprecedented test of technology in the North Slope of Alaska that was able to safely extract a steady flow of natural gas from methane hydrates, a vast, entirely untapped resource that holds enormous potential for U.S. economic and energy security. Building upon this initial, small-scale test, the Department is launching a new research effort to conduct a long-term production test in the Arctic as well as research to test additional technologies that could be used to locate, characterize and safely extract methane hydrates on a larger scale in the U.S. Gulf Coast.

DALLAS, Texas -- The global geothermal energy market including power generation and direct use in terms of installed capacity is expected to grow from 61,200 MW in 2010 to 120,300 MW in 2015 at an estimated CAGR of 14 percent for the same period. Europe leads the geothermal market with a share of 37 percent followed by Americas and Asia with 32 percent and 27 percent share respectively for geothermal energy supply.
When many people think about carbon emissions, they assume that cars and other motorized vehicles are the main culprits. However, building construction uses 30 percent of all raw materials consumed in this country and 12 percent of all available potable water – 15 trillion gallons each year. This level of water consumption is ultimately unsustainable, given that the United Nations World Water Development Report 3, issued in 2009, states that one-third of the world’s population already lacks access to clean water. The report projects that at the present rate of consumption, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed conditions by 2025.
