I've been thinking that since alternative energy sources on are everyone's mind of late, that it might be nice to have a thread dedicated to the topic. I don't know that there's enough news to make it monthly, but keeping the topic in one dedicated thread (or one dedicated thread a month) would make it easier to update the topic when a bit of new news comes around, or someone is trying to find the information via search. So with that in mind: Details on the Tesla SUV surface. Pee powered robot gets an upgrade. You know, I can see this as being a great thing for bars. Plenty of urine available to generate power, if they're able to generate enough power to start selling it back into the grid, they could give patrons credits for discounts on drinks!
