DSIRE – Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency

October 09, 2014

DSIRE – Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency
http://www.dsireusa.org/

DSIRE is the most comprehensive source of information on incentives and policies that support renewables and energy efficiency in the United States. Established in 1995, DSIRE is currently operated by the N.C. Solar Center at N.C. State University, with support from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. DSIRE is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Suject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Green Files Subject Tracer™.

National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)

July 14, 2014

National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)
http://www.neoninc.org/

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is a continental-scale ecological observation system for examining critical ecological issues. NEON is designed to gather and synthesize data on the impacts of climate change, land use change and invasive species on natural resources and biodiversity. Data will be collected from 106 sites (60 terrestrial, 36 aquatic and 10 aquatic experimental) across the U.S. (including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico) using instrument measurements and field sampling. The sites have been strategically selected to represent different regions of vegetation, landforms, climate, and ecosystem performance. NEON will combine site-based data with remotely sensed data and existing continental-scale data sets (e.g. satellite data) to provide a range of scaled data products that can be used to describe changes in the nation’s ecosystem through space and time. This will be added to Green Files Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

PLants Employed As SEnsing Devices (PLEASED)

PLants Employed As SEnsing Devices (PLEASED)
http://pleased-fp7.eu/

Plants have amazing and significant sensing capabilities. For instance, each single root apex can simultaneously and continuously monitor many chemical and physical parameters. Natural organisms, including human beings, have often inspired works of science and science fiction on how to augment their abilities or interface them with machines. As a remarkable example, electroencephalography (EEG) enables the transduction of electrical activity in the brain into machine understandable signals of non-verbalised patterns. In this project, they plan to extend this approach to the realm of plants, shifting focus from interfacing a single entity (e.g. a human brain that controls a prosthetic device) to a network of entities (a community of plants) that renders an orchestrated response to the environment in which it lives. While artificial sensing devices exist that can monitor environmental parameters of interest, such as temperature or humidity, the focus of their research will be on the use of plants themselves as sensing and decision-making devices. The holistic approach they propose is novel: while plants as bio-sensors have been the object of previous studies, prior work has focused on the study of the sensing capabilities of individual plants in a controlled laboratory environment. In contrast, they plan to consider real field scenarios (e.g. a forest or a meadow) in which plants often receive uncontrollable and unpredictable stimuli. They will consider the case of multiple points of observations, in which readings from several plants are collected over a wireless network and integrated in a suitable way to obtain a consistent and global view of an environment of interest. Eco-compatible, self-sustainable and cost effective plant-based solutions will be studied to tackle two relevant problems of the modern society: air pollution and the use of chemicals in organic agriculture. We are used to thinking of plants as inanimate objects. A nice aphorism well describes their vision: “One day you will step into the garden to look at the flowers – and the flowers will look back at you”. Even more interestingly, they also claim that plants will gossip about you! This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
