Here’s a great guest blog by Charles A Juopperi on wind generated electric power. In the article Charles discusses the pros and cons of the technology.
Wind generated electric power exists through harnessing wind-power energy with turbines. To fully understand wind generated electrical power, one must understand how wind powered electricity is made; resources needed to utilize wind power; types and sizes of wind turbines; building a wind turbine; potential positive and negative impacts of the technology; where wind powered electricity can be effectively generated; and, offsetting the costs of wind powered electric technology.

The paperless office has been a topic of debate for over 20 years. But look around the average office and one still sees loads of paper being printed and aimlessly filed. Is the paperless office merely a myth or is there some credence to the claim that offices will soon be paperless? In this short article I discuss some of the key trends affecting paper use and analyse data that may hold some insight into the future of the paperless office. (image attribution: nuttakit)
Recycling commences at the waste disposal level with segregation and containment of individual waste streams. Segregation, containment, transportation and processing of waste streams are parts of waste management. Each part of the waste management and recycling process requires adequate equipment to optimise the whole process making it even more profitable. (image attribution: akeeris)
The Carbon Trust helpfully published late last year its clear explanation of the benefits of Voltage Management, how it works, and prescribed a methodology on how Site Surveys should be conducted. This has developed a minimum standard for the industry and has really helped potential customers understand what Voltage Management is all about and how it is, or is not, applicable to their needs.

Here’s an interesting article on Environmental Management Systems (EMS) by guest blogger Eric Monson.
Increasing public awareness of environmental issues and responsibilities is fueling the need for the wider business community to demonstrate their green credentials and manage their business activities in an environmentally friendly and cost efficient manner, without adversely affecting profitability.
Finding the starting point and establishing how a business actually goes about implementing an EMS can often be a daunting prospect. This article is intended to provide a little practical guidance and advice to business managers who may have been given the task of implementing an EMS.
