Wind Power Comes Out Top in Review of Alternative Energy Sources - Environmental-Expert.com - 23 Feb 09

"Best to worst electric power sources:

* wind power
* concentrated solar power (CSP)
* geothermal power
* tidal power
* solar photovoltaics (PV)
* wave power
* hydroelectric power
* a tie between nuclear power and coal with CCS

Best to worst vehicle options:

* wind-BEVs (battery electric vehicles)
* wind-HFCVs (hydrogen fuel cell vehicles)
* CSP-BEVs
* geothermal-BEVs
* tidal-BEVs
* solar PV-BEVs
* wave-BEVs
* hydroelectric-BEVs
* a tie between nuclear-BEVs and coal-CCS-BEVs
* coal-CCS-BEVs (tied with nuclear-BEVs)
* corn-E85 (ethanol)
* cellulosic-E85 (ethanol)"
