DSTI and it's warrant DSTIZ trading up today. Here's a good article for those that think oil is plentiful and nothing to worry about:
The 4 biggest oil fields in the world are in declinehttp://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2006/1/26/9229/79300
Only around 50 super-giant oilfields have ever been found, and the most recent, in 2000, was the first in 25 years: the problematically acidic 9-12 billion barrel Kashagan field in Kazakhstan.
In 2000 there were 16 discoveries of 500 million barrels of oil equivalent or bigger. In 2001 there were nine. In 2002 there were just two. In 2003 there were none.

President Bush outlines his energy proposals at the Johnson Controls plant in Milwaukee on Monday. Bush said he was impressed with the growing commercial uses of solar energy.
Bush pushes alternative energy proposals
“Roof makers will one day be able to make a solar roof that protects you from the elements and at the same time, powers your house,” Bush said. “The vision is this — that technology will become so efficient that you’ll become a little power generator in your home, and if you don’t use the energy you generate you’ll be able to feed it back into the electricity grid.”
This can only do good things for stocks like XSNX, DSTI, and SPWR

Alternative Energy Investing Launches Coverage of Valence Technology (Nasdaq: VLNC)
Friday February 24, 1:50 pm ET
NEW YORK, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Alternative Energy Investing "AEI", a Energy-technology and alternative energy institutional equity research firm, announced today that it has initiated coverage of Valence Technology
Valence Technology designs, develops and makes large-format lithium polymer batteries targeting the deep-cycle (read "long run-time") and high-rate (read "high power") markets including HEVs and plug-in electric vehicles and motive power. Founded in 1989 and public in November of '92 (Banc of America Securities), Valance is well positioned to capture share in the newly emerging large-format Lithium-ion market with their Saphion family of large-format lithium-ion batteries. Freedonia Group estimates the market for large-scale lithium-ion batteries to grow 280% and 638% over the coming three and nine years respectively.
PLUG-IN HYBRID VEHICLE POWERED BY VALENCE BATTERY UNVEILED AT EVS 21
New Concept Car Developed with EnergyCS Offers Dramatically Better Gas Mileage and More Zero Emission Driving Than Existing Hybrids AUSTIN, Texas – March 29, 2005 – At the 21st Worldwide International Battery, Hybrid and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition (EVS 21) being held next week, Valence Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: VLNC), a leader in the development of large-format Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, and EnergyCS, developers of integration control systems, will showcase a new concept plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Powered by the Valence U-Charge™ Power System, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is a fully functional concept car based on a 2004 Toyota Prius. Because the Valence battery offers much more energy than batteries traditionally used in hybrid vehicles, it allows significant amounts of zero-emission driving with the concept PHEV. With a fuel efficiency that can reach up to 180 miles per gallon for an average commute of 50-60 miles per day, the PHEV has superior gas mileage, which means fewer trips to the gas station. Using the U-Charge system, the PHEV offers the best of both worlds: zero-emission electric mode (up to 33 m/h, 53 km/h) and an efficient gas motor for long trips. Valence will exhibit in EVS 21 Booth C128 and the Valence-EnergyCS PHEV will be on display at the Ride and Drive area throughout the EVS 21 show. The vehicle will also be part of the Rallye Monte-Carlo Fuel Cell & Hybrid on April 2.

WWAT had a nice 10% move today after they reaffirmed their guidance for 3rd quarter. This is one of the few small pure solar stocks that actually makes money. Anyone think this one could bounce back up to .60 cents share or more anytime soon?

DayStar Confirms Critical Production Goals Remain on Track
DayStar Becomes First Publicly Held Company to Achieve Factory Production of Discrete CIGS Solar Cells
DayStar Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: DSTI - News), a developer and manufacturer of innovative CIGS Photovoltaic Foil products, today confirmed status of important production and performance milestones. The Company reported that production throughput and performance objectives for cells produced on the Gen II production line are exceeding expectations, and anticipates reaching 10 percent or greater cell efficiencies by the end of this year. DayStar has ramped up its operations, and is now running three production shifts, five days a week, to produce and ship its proprietary CIGS thin film solar cells. TerraFoil cells from the Gen II line are being used for two purposes: by current customers for early market acceptance, and as a means to secure new strategic relationships.
Dr. Stephan DeLuca, Chief Operating Officer of DayStar commented, "Saying you intend to produce commercially viable CIGS solar cells and actually doing it, are two very different things. We believe our incremental and multi- generational production roadmap is the most effective way to overcome the many engineering and manufacturing challenges required to bring real CIGS product to the market. We are effectively executing a very clear and well defined path that is producing positive results. As the first manufacturer to successfully begin factory production of discrete CIGS solar cells on metal foil substrates, that are compatible with wafer Si cell module operations, we have initiated a paradigm in the expanded adoption of thin-film PV products. This vital step now clears the way for our next generation of higher volume production, required for achieving our goal of Gigawatt-scale manufacturing."
About DayStar Technologies, Inc.
DayStar Technologies, Inc. is an emerging leader in low cost, high efficiency Photovoltaic Foil that converts sunlight into energy. The Company manufactures CIGS solar cells, which are deposited on flexible metal foils using production processes adapted from computer component manufacturing. As an alternative to wafer-silicon solar cells, DayStar believes the unique combination of its CIGS solar cell design coupled with proprietary manufacturing processes on flexible metal substrates could substantially lower costs and remove deployment barriers currently limiting large adoption of solar energy.
