[innovation] Énergie solaire : de meilleurs rendements grâce à une galette en carbone

[innovation] Énergie solaire : de meilleurs rendements grâce à une galette en carbone | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Les centrales solaires thermodynamiques à concentration sont des alternatives aux centrales solaires qui utilisent des cellules photovoltaïques. Leur taux de conversion de l’énergie solaire en vapeur pourrait être fortement augmenté avec des coûts moins élevés grâce à un matériau simple à base de carbone que viennent de mettre au point des chercheurs du MIT.

Three Critical Innovation Roles: Broker, Role Model, Risk-Taker

Three Critical Innovation Roles:  Broker, Role Model, Risk-Taker | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

When the mythical narrator in the above-quoted Warren Zevon tune found himself  in a bit of trouble, he knew he needed three things:  “lawyers, guns and money.”   Presumably, whatever the problem or scale of the trouble, the combination of these three things would be a likely solution.

Stephane Bilodeau's insight:

"You won’t find these functions described in job descriptions, nor will you find someone with a title like “risk-taker.”  You won’t find these roles being incentivized, or formally evaluated or even recognized, as a rule.   Like many aspects of an innovation culture, they happen – serendipitously – or they don’t.  And because the roles are elusive and difficult to measure, they can go unappreciated and unnoticed.  And then they gradually fade away.

 

But if you look hard in your organization, trust your own judgment, and use your best observational skills, you can find, nurture, and acknowledge these key individuals and keep their critical skill sets alive . . . and growing."

Nice to see this comment chain, and all the alignment around the value of "open" exchange. Clearly, Warren Zevon did have a lot to teach us about organizational science!

A Different Kind of Energy Innovation

New business models may not be as sexy as new energy technology. But their impact could be just as great, helping more homeowners adopt solar power, for instance.

Designing The Innovation Economy: Using Technology To Shape The Future City

Designing The Innovation Economy: Using Technology To Shape The Future City | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
With technological change marching forward at a rapid clip, city environments are being reshaped and the urban experience is being reimagined.

Nearly ubiquitous mobile access has provided visitors and residents with the ability to unlock the “secrets” of the city, opening the door to new experiences and improving livability and user-friendliness. However, in order to make the best of these changes, policy must welcome and support innovation and the urban transformation that accompanies it—and there’s no one-size-fits-all formula...

10 High-Tech, Green City Solutions for Beating the Heat

10 High-Tech, Green City Solutions for Beating the Heat | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

From a solar mansion in China to a floating farm in New York, green buildings are sprouting up in cities around the world. Among their many benefits are curbing fossil-fuel use and reducing the urban heat island effect.


The Science Barge is a floating environmental education classroom and greenhouse on the Hudson River in New York. Fueled by solar power, wind, and biofuels, the barge, which was built in 2007, has zero carbon emissions.

Vegetables are grown hydroponically in an effort to preserve natural resources and adapt to urban environments, where healthy soil, or soil at all, is hard to come by. Rainwater and treated river water are used for irrigation.

The owner of the barge—New York Sun Works—designed it as a prototype for closed-loop and self-sufficient rooftop gardens in urban areas.

If the waters rise we could move those in places like New Orleans to floating cities?  or maybe we should move some of the policitians there and cut them loose?

[innovation] Des écrans interactifs sous forme de "papier peint" sont l’avenir de la télévision

[innovation] Des écrans interactifs sous forme de "papier peint" sont l’avenir de la télévision | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

La façon dont nous regardons la télévision dans le futur, est susceptible de changer de façon significative dès aujourd’hui. Sous forme de gros pavé, la télévision interactive sous forme de papier peint va dominer la pièce, des écrans répartis qui grâce à votre vision périphérique, vont créer une expérience véritablement immersive. Qui plus est, vous serez en mesure d’utiliser une partie ou la totalité de l’écran pour différentes émissions, films, pages Web ou pour Twitter.
