A CSIRO discovery could lead to a new boom industry that would not only solve the world's energy problems but also its greenhouse gas concerns, while creating much needed employment. It might sound too good to be true, but the CSIRO, Australia's flagship research organisation, is no pie in the sky organisation and it is deadly serious about this.

Japanese electronics powerhouse Sharp is showcasing its “Zero Emission House” with one of the highlights being a low power consumption prototype 26-inch LCD TV. If desired, it can fully powered by a similarly sized solar panel connected to a battery system that stores the electricity generated by the sun, giving you power even if “off the grid”. Cool!
