9 Inspiring Green Tech Projects

I never knew that Portugal was a leading clean-tech nation in the EU.  Their massive Solar Photovoltaic Farm project sounds really promising. Maybe we should all learn something from these nine stories and work together to develop green tech in order to benefit society and our planet.

Portugal produces 1/3 of its energy from renewable sources. In having to quickly respond to a shortage of oil, coal and gas, Portugal is now an EU leader in the clean tech revolution. In less than three years, Portugal has trebled its hydropower capacity, quadrupled its wind power, and is investing in more photovoltaic plants. What is to be the world’s largest solar photovoltaic farm is taking shape near Moura, generating electricity straight from sunlight . It is expected to supply 45MW of electricity each year, enough to power 30,000 homes.

The "Cooking with clean burning stoves" section of that article made me think of something I've been doing a lot of research on recently. Some people are trying to make anaerobic digesters more popular in developing countries to use organic waste to make biogas since it is comprised of mostly methane.

Here are a couple of references to illustrate.
