| 1 Comment

"EBSCO's GreenFILEis a free database offering access to research-related information on human impacts to the environment. Its collection of scholarly, government, and generalinterest titles include content about the environmental effects of individuals, corporations, and local /national governments and what can be done on each level to minimize the negative impact. Topics covered include global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, and recycling. Articles are retrieved from 600 titles with nearly 300,000 articles, including full-text access from more than 4,600 open access titles. The same general search of terms and concepts related to green or sustainable buildings (including libraries), architecture, design, etc., provides nearly 3,900 records from academic journals, magazines, books/monographs, book reviews, reports, and government documents."

Green Energy Portal from the DOE

| No Comments

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, the  U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)  Office of Scientific and Technical Information  (OSTI)  has opened the Green Energy Portal.  It offers to all -- scientists, students and the public -- quick access to research and development in the area of renewable energy.  There are thousands of full-text documents.

"The DOE Green Energy portal is part of the DOE Open Government Plan, which furthers the Administration's Open Government Initiative. DOE Green Energy contains both current and historical research, including bibliographic citations, technical reports and patent information on different types of renewable energy resources and energy conservation. Subject areas include but are not limited to solar, wind, bioenergy, hydroelectric, geothermal, tidal and wave power, and energy storage."

This is most likely a just a short cut, but I trust that most all of these documents and their indexing is available via NTIS, NTRL, Science.gov and/or the DOE's Information Bridge.
