Greening highways and homes
Dan Kammen directs the Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Transportation Sustainability Research Center at UC Berkeley. His research focuses on greening our homes and highways from both a science and public policy perspective. Kammen's vision is to reduce the planet's carbon emissions by dramatic amounts over the coming decades by using smart technologies.

Have you impemented Power Factor Correction Tech in your home or office?
As a technologist who worked on Magnetic Fusion Technology at LLNL back in the 1970's and Laser Fusion there in the 1980's, I have been deeply disappointed in the lack of progress toward non carbon based power sources over the years since then.
Having been a proponent and a salesman of Toyota Hybrid vehicle technology over the past 5 years, I have seen the immediate promise here firsthand.
However, some prosaic and simple savings have been largely overlooked - referring to the Power Factor Correction Technology that we now offer. It has been proven in over 5,000 installations across the country so far.
We expect that over 70% of the homes and businesses in the US today need this NOW. It offers 8-40% savings in new electricity needed to operate existing equipment. Our ROI is based upon COMPLETE PAYBACK in LESS THAN 12 MONTHS, with all future savings going toward your pocket or bottom line.
From the rice farmers in Louisiana who operate huge 60 HP motors to flood the fields with irrigation water to the corner Starbucks coffee shop - we have supplied both off the shelf Energy Savers and custom designed, application specific hardware that WORKS NOW to reduce your carbon footprint and INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR GRID ON YOUR SIDE OF THE METER. This reduces the need for new electricity and lowers your electric bill by doing so.

Music Dan Kammen: I'm Dan Kammen, and I'm a professor of energy at the University of California, Berkeley where I also direct both the Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Center for Sustainable Transportation. So, I'm excited about the opportunities on both greening our homes, greening our highways and I work on both sides of that from science to policy. My laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley has been active in a whole number of areas from designing better solar cells to getting involved in efforts to electrify transportation, so we can use plug-in electric vehicles and pure electric vehicles. So, we are involved in kind of both the stationary field side and the mobile side really with the vision to reduce our carbon emissions by dramatic amounts. The opportunities to get much higher mileage and much lower carbon emissions from vehicles that are either fully or partially electric, so-called pure electric or plug-in hybrids look like a dramatic transformation. A plug-in hybrid vehicle in California can get 130 miles to the gallon equivalent today and the ability to use our off peak nuclear, our night time wind energy provides a really unique way to use the green ways we had envisioned in the past. I'm hoping to see a brand new version of house get rolled out in the coming decades whether your home has fuel cell in the basement or solar panels on the roof, a windmill in the backyard or just the big battery that you are able to manage your energy supply as a source of revenue. You are charging your car, you're selling power back to the grid and it's a home designed around this not just a smart grid, but a smart home.
