At RESTCo, we see ourselves as expertise for hire to help remote communities work through issues they have related to energy, and design solutions to meet the local situation. In the course of our work over the years, we have come across some common issues and truisms. We present many of those here in the form of Top Ten lists for specific sub-categories.

*Electricity Generation

Some see renewable sources for electricity generation as a futuristic dream, which is not practical today. However, by 2009, 25% of the world's generation of electricity was produced from sustainable sources - and the sustainable fraction is growing in the face of rising fossil fuel prices.

As climate change impacts the temperatures in the ocean, it is likely that some fish species will move north with richer plankton zones. A traditional means of preservinc fish is curing, a process well known in Newfoundland in years past. Here's an article on the subject, including some modern twists.

*Housing Energy Efficiency & Ventilation

*Transportation

Even drawing from our existing power plants, plug-in vehicles have the potential to cut a vehicle's petroleum consumption by three-fourths or more, can operate at as little as one-fourth the fuel cost, and reduce greenhouse gases by two-thirds. As we increasingly turn to alternative technologies to improve the fuel economy of our vehicles, we will see increasing benefits to our economy, our environment, and our national security.
