Energy Storage Innovations
Forget about distributed power and intermittant sources of power such as solar and wind without energy management and energy storage. What stationary and mobile storage technologies are becoming commercially viable, and what companies are working on delivering these innovations?

The Integrated Building
Structures of tomorrow will harvest water and energy, using some, storing some, sending surplus into the grid, drawing from the grid to make up deficits. These structures will use recyclable, non-toxic materials, efficiently managing all energy with fully integrated electrical and thermal management systems. What innovations are here today; what companies are driving the prices down and the performance up?

Clean Energy Options
Along with solar energy and biofuel , there is wind energy, ocean energy, enhanced geothermal energy, thermal convection energy, and a host of variations on these themes. There is also the nuclear fission option, with nuclear technologies safer than ever. Eventually there may be nuclear fusion. And hydropower, from run-of-river green systems to deep water reservoirs, is still experiencing significant growth. How will these options develop, and which of them will step up alongside solar energy to replace fossil fuel?
