Cleantech News; President Obama Meets with the Cabinet to Discuss Economy, Iraq, BP Oil Spill and Energy and Climate Legislation

President Obama Meets with the Cabinet to Discuss Economy, Iraq, BP Oil Spill and Energy and Climate Legislation

"It is time for us to move to a clean energy future"


http://www.whitehouse.gov/
(http://www.investorideas.com/ clean energy stocks blog ) White House Blog; President Obama held a Cabinet meeting at the White House to discuss a variety of topics with the Cabinet ranging from economic growth, national security and the war in Iraq, the BP Oil Spill, and the need for comprehensive energy and climate legislation.

Following the meeting the President gave brief remarks in the Roosevelt Room. The President began his remarks by mentioning the Cabinet’s discussion of economic growth. Over the past five months we have seen job and economic growth, but the President emphasized that there is still more work to be done to help the “millions of Americans out there who are looking for work, or looking for more hours, or are behind on their payments because they experienced unemployment very recently.”

Vice President Biden also gave a briefing on Iraq:

We also got a full briefing from our national security team as well as Vice President Biden on Iraq. It hasn’t received a lot of attention lately, but we are on pace to meet every target that we set at the beginning of this administration, to have our combat troops out and to transfer security responsibilities to the Iraqis. And we had a discussion about the progress that's been made in terms of government formation there.

We also discussed the importance of the transition from a Defense-weighted U.S. approach to a more State Department-weighted approach, and the need to make sure that we are adequately funding and supporting all the diplomatic measures that are going to be necessary so that we can partner effectively with a new Iraqi government over the long haul.


The Cabinet also discussed the BP Oil Spill and measures that have been taken over the past few weeks to stop the leak, clean up the oil and compensate those whose livelihoods have been disrupted by the oil spill.

We had a discussion about the oil spill in the Gulf and the important measures that are being taken both in capping the well, in making sure that we are dealing with the consequences on the shorelines and estuaries and bays across the Gulf, and also making sure that ordinary Americans who are being devastated economically are compensated properly.



Ken Feinberg has already traveled to the Gulf, and he is meeting with governors and local officials with the $20 billion fund that has been set up. We want to make sure that that money is moving out as quickly as possible, as fairly as possible, and that some of the people who I’ve had a chance to talk to down in the Gulf who are just desperate for relief are getting help as quickly as possible.



Finally the Cabinet discussed the importance of passing comprehensive energy and climate legislation:

And finally, we talked about energy. In the context of the oil spill, as I said last week during my Oval Office address, this has to be a wakeup call to the country that we are prepared and ready to move forward on a new energy strategy that the American people desperately want but for which there’s been insufficient political will. It is time for us to move to a clean energy future. I think the American people understand that it is a jobs creator, that it is a national security enhancer, that it is what is needed environmentally.

And we have the opportunity to build on actions that have already been taken in the House of Representatives. The Senate has an opportunity before the August recess and the elections to stand up and move forward on something that could have enormous, positive consequences for generations to come. And the entire Cabinet here recognizes, with all the other stuff that they’re doing, that if we get energy right, that an awful lot of things can happen as a consequence.

The President will meet with a bi-partisan group of Senators to discuss energy and climate legislation next week. The live chat with Heather Zichal, Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, on energy and climate legislation originally scheduled for this afternoon will be rescheduled for next week as well so she can discuss the outcome of the meeting.

TSX Wind Stocks; Industrial Growth Income Corporation Announces Proposed Qualifying Transaction


WINNIPEG, June 23 TSX Wind Stocks( http://www.investorideas.com/ cleantech stocks blog) Industrial Growth Income Corporation (NEX: IGI.H) ("IGIC"), a capital pool company listed on the NEX board (the "NEX") of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that it has signed an arm's length letter of intent (the "Letter of Intent") dated June 17, 2010 with IQwind Ltd. ("IQwind") to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of IQwind.

If completed, the proposed transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") will constitute the qualifying transaction of IGIC pursuant to Policy 2.4 Capital Pool Companies of the Exchange (the "CPC Policy").



IGIC was incorporated on September 22, 2005 and began trading on the Exchange on August 16, 2006 as a capital pool company. IGIC was transferred from the Exchange to the NEX on May 27, 2009 for failure to complete its qualifying transaction within the required time period. Upon completion of the Qualifying Transaction, provided all necessary approvals are obtained, IGIC will return to listing on the Exchange.


About IQwind:
IQwind is a developer and manufacturer of components for the wind turbine industry. IQwind is a private company incorporated on August 28, 2007 pursuant to the laws of the State of Israel. To date IQwind has been focused on technology development and has not reached the revenue stage.
IQwind was founded with the vision of reducing the cost of energy generated by wind turbines through an efficient and reliable mechanical gear that would increase performance and reduce the cost of wind turbines. IQwind has become an innovator in the wind energy industry focused on leveraging its proprietary variable gear technology, called the IQgear, to reduce the cost of energy generated by existing and newly-built wind turbines.



The IQgear technology is the basis for the IQgearbox, a breakthrough in wind turbine gearbox design. The IQgearbox represents an industry innovation: a variable speed turbine built around a fully-mechanical variable speed drivetrain.

A press release containing additional details regarding the business of IQwind as well as certain financial information regarding IQwind will be released by IGIC as soon as such information is available.
Terms of proposed qualifying transaction:

-----------------------------------------

Pursuant to the Letter of Intent, IGIC will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of IQwind and the Qualifying Transaction will result in IQwind becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of IGIC.

Electric Car News; Plug In Carolina Selects AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV ) in to Supply, Install and Support Electric Car "Re-fueling" Stations Throughout South Carolina

Electric Car News; Plug In Carolina Selects AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV ) in to Supply, Install and Support Electric Car "Re-fueling" Stations Throughout South Carolina


CHARLESTON, S.C., Electric Car News of note - (Investorideas.com green newswire ; http://www.renewableenergystocks.com/
As today's headlines make note that the White House is backing electric cars - the following electric car news is available to investors:

Plug In Carolina announced it has selected AeroVironment, Inc. (AV) /quotes/comstock/15*!avav/quotes/nls/avav (NASDAQ: AVAV ) in Monrovia, Calif., to supply, install and support a network of public electric vehicle (EV) "re-fueling" stations in seven South Carolina cities. The charging network is expected to be operational by December 1, 2010 to support the variety of new EVs entering the roadways.
The project, funded largely by two state grants secured through the South Carolina Energy Office and scheduled to launch June 15, 2010, features a family of charging stations with one, two, or four charge points each. The multi-port configuration is user friendly and lends itself to cost-effective electrical installation. The stations will be located in key re-fueling hubs in each city.

"With seven cities located across the state installing charging stations, this project is helping to establish not only EV ready cities but positioning South Carolina as the first EV ready state in the country," said James Poch, Plug In Carolina executive director. The program will provide publicly accessible EV charging stations at locations such as municipal parking garages, public streets and retailers. Depending on host city requirements, the stations will offer smart communications and payment system options now or in the future.
"AeroVironment submitted the most comprehensive proposal among the eleven that we received, not only reflecting their deep understanding of the technology but also of the practical infrastructure considerations involved in creating a reliable EV charging network," Poch said. "Beyond our hardware needs, it became apparent to us why Nissan would choose AV to handle its nationwide deployment. We are confident that AV's detailed project management capabilities will maximize the network's utility to EV drivers."

"Refueling infrastructure is critical for the mass acceptance of clean electric vehicles," said Mike Bissonette, senior vice president and general manager of AV's Efficient Energy Systems segment. "The move to EVs is demonstrating momentum now, and reliable charging systems for both the home and in the public will be essential for the full-scale, practical adoption of electric cars. We are committed to achieving the successful implementation of this pioneering recharging network for the people of South Carolina."


AeroVironment has been developing, manufacturing and supporting EV charging products for more than a decade. AV offers a broad range of products and services, such as Level 2 charging stations for the home, and public and Level 3 fast charge public stations that can re-fuel a car battery in as little as 10 minutes. AV also offers robust, multi-modal communication, networking and payment systems that support the evolving needs of public charging infrastructure.

Electric Vehicle Car News; Kandi (Nasdaq: KNDI) Reports Another of Its EVs -- Model KD5010XXYEV Has Been Approved for Sale in China

Electric Vehicle Car News; Kandi (Nasdaq: KNDI) Reports Another of Its EVs -- Model KD5010XXYEV Has Been Approved for Sale in China by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology



JINHUA, CHINA, ( Investorideas.com renewable energy/green newswire, http://www.renewableenergystocks.com/ ) Kandi Technologies, (NASDAQ:KNDI) reported today that following the Chinese governmental approval it received for the sale domestically of its EV vehicle types 5012xxybev and 5020xxybev (batch 203 and batch 212, respectively) published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on May 26, 2010, it has received another approval for the sale of its new EV, the KD5010xxyev, in MIIT announcement No. 104 (batch 214).

As previously reported, upon receiving its first EV approval on May 26, 2010, after many years of effort, the Company gained the right to manufacture finished automobiles for Chinese consumers. This was a milestone event which it believes has set the foundation for developing domestic EV sales.



According to the Company, however, its first two models to receive government approval are suitable for limited consumer groups, and the Company does not intend for them to be mass produced. In contrast, in the Company's view, the applicable sphere of the new faster and larger KD5010xxyev is much broader and it has great market potential. Not only does it potentially provide families with low cost, environmentally friendly all electric transportation, but it also is expected to meet the needs of government agencies such as the post office and power supply providers. As such, the Company is optimistic that the new KD5010xxyev will achieve popularity and contribute to the Company's future development.

Water Stocks; Mueller Systems Announces Mi.Hydrant™ for Smart Water AMR/AMI

Water Stocks; Mueller Systems Announces Mi.Hydrant™ for Smart Water AMR/AMI
“Smart” fire hydrant takes center stage in communication grids connecting meter to utility distribution

CLEVELAND, N.C.--(Investorideas.com water stocks newswire, http://www.water-stocks.com/ )--Meet the smartest fire hydrant on the block.

“In today’s complex environment, information flow is a critical part of managing water flow”
.Beginning this year, utilities will have a cost-effective and innovative new option for building AMR/AMI smart grid communications for water management with the Mi.Hydrant™, from Mueller Systems. Mi.Hydrant uses radio transceivers built into fire hydrant caps to communicate water usage-related data that can help utilities improve efficiencies and customer service. It eliminates the need for costly utility leases and enhances the value of existing water infrastructure assets.

Mi.Hydrant is part of the Mi.Net™ Mueller Infrastructure for Utilities advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system from Mueller Systems. Mueller Systems is part of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE: MWA), the leading provider of water infrastructure, flow control and piping component system products.

“In today’s complex environment, information flow is a critical part of managing water flow,” said Hassan Ali, General Manager of Mueller Systems. “Mi.Hydrant from Mueller Systems transforms the fire hydrant into an active part of a fixed two-way AMI network.”

Mueller Systems is the first and only provider to recognize that utilities can use existing hydrant infrastructure to be part of a communications grid, linking multiple components of a water infrastructure system; permitting utilities to improve information flows; and the ability to respond to customers’ needs. Mi.Hydrant systems can proactively identify and resolve critical issues around operational efficiency, water conservation, and workforce productivity -– before they affect service.

Mi.Hydrant is an enclosed transceiver that replaces the pumper cap of existing fire hydrants, blending aesthetically and operationally into the existing water infrastructure. It can provide multi-path radio frequency coverage. The device first collects and stores water infrastructure data in its own internal memory. Then, both on demand and at scheduled intervals, it transmits data to the Mi.Net™ Mueller “Infrastructure Network for Utilities” AMI system. Mi.Hydrant thus extends a 900 MHz public broadband, multi-path network for billing, metering and intelligent management of data and water.

Because many municipal codes require fire hydrant placement every 500 feet, utilities can take advantage of the cost savings of using what they already have. The Mi.Hydrant has a range of two-to-three times that distance, creating important communications links that can be built or be part of a communications grid for AMR/AMI from the meter to utility distribution communications, and back again. It provides a complete, end-to-end, two-way “smart water” network for AMR and AMI. Utilities can reduce equipment and labor costs and can eliminate the need to navigate the procedures, politics, and logistics of locating and installing additional structures on which to place communication devices.

The FCC-compliant Mi.Hydrant features open architecture, so while it is ideally deployed in a fire hydrant from Mueller Co., the leading provider of fire hydrants in the world, it can also be used with other brand fire hydrants. This empowers utilities to transition in a scaled, cost-effective manner. Mi.Hydrant can also be used to communicate data to:

•Increase operational efficiency for utilities
•Account for non-revenue water
•Reduce carbon footprint by streamlining labor and water usage
•Improve customer service through timely and accurate data

Cleantech News; BP ( BP: NYSE) to Proceed With Costner Centrifuge Devices to Cleanup Gulf Oil Spill

Cleantech News; BP ( BP: NYSE)  to Proceed With Costner Centrifuge Devices to Cleanup Gulf Oil Spill

Ocean Therapy Solutions: Providing Global Solutions for Oil Recovery



New Orleans, LA  http://www.ots.org/  cleantech news;  ( http://www.investorideas.com/ clean energy blog )
British Petroleum (  BP: NYSE) signed a letter of intent with Ocean Therapy Solutions to deploy thirty-two centrifuge machines to assist in the cleanup of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. BP agreed to use the technology after testing machines during the past week.

In testimony  before the House of Representatives' Science and Technology committee, Ocean Therapy Solutions partner Kevin Costner told the panel about the challenges he faced bringing the technology into industrial use, including his own personal investment of over $20 million developing the technology. He urged committee members to legislate that oil rigs be required to have mitigation equipment onsite. ”We've legislated life preservers. We legislated fire extinguishers,” Costner said. ”We legislated lifeboats and first aid kits. It seems logical that as long as the oil industry profits from the sea, they have the legal obligation to protect it, except when they find themselves fighting for life and limb.”


Just one of the company's V20 machines can clean up to 210,000 gallons of oily water per day. There are 3 V20 centrifuge machines currently operational in the Gulf. Ten more should become operational within weeks. ”Once production at our factory in Nevada ramps up in July, OTS will be able to produce 10 machines a month,” said Pat Smith, Chief Operating Officer for OTS. ”We are currently ramping up production of new machines with a goal toward deploying the machines along the entire coast,” he said.

”We have chosen teaming partners that are at ground zero and understand the challenges we face, including Edison Chouest Offshore, the largest offshore supply company in the Gulf of Mexico,” said John W. Houghtaling II, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean Therapy Solutions.
The centrifuge machines are sophisticated centrifuge devices that can handle a huge volume of water and separate oil at unprecedented rates. Costner has been funding a team of scientists for the last 15 years to develop a technology which could be used for massive oil spills.

The machines are taken out into the spill area via barges, where they can separate the oil and water. The machines come in different sizes, the largest of which, the V20, can clean water at a rate of 200 gallons per minute. Depending on the oil to water ratio, the machine has the ability to extract 2,000 barrels of oil a day from the Gulf. Once separation has occurred, the oil is stored in tanks. The water is then more than 99% clean of crude.
