Storing the surplus of renewable energy in batteries for later use seems like the obvious solution, but a new study from Stanford University suggests this might not always be the case.
Research shows that there will not be enough water in the world to meet demand by 2040 it the energy and power situation doesn’t improve by then.
Blu-ray discs are already one of the best ways to store high-definition movies and TV shows because of their high-density data storage. Now, new research from Northwestern University states they also improve the performance of solar cells.
Scientists at the University of Missouri (MU) have created a nuclear battery that can be used to supply energy to everything from electric cars to space flight.
Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria.
Is it a solar cell or a rechargeable battery? Both! The patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is the world’s first solar battery.
Taking advantage of the Sun’s light to supply your home with electricity helps to reduce your electricity bills and your carbon footprint. Whether it’s summer or winter, throughout the year, Australia bakes under the unyielding rays of the sun. On average, Australia experiences more solar radiation per square kilometre than anywhere else. The … Continue reading How You Benefit From Solar Energy
A new report claims that new battery technology could make it possible for Australian homes to generate and store solar-powered energy more inexpensively than traditional electricity suppliers by 2018. A report by The Climate Council, a non-government organisation, found that improvements in battery technology may make solar energy cheaper than purchasing it within … Continue reading By 2018, an Expected 50% of all Australian Homes will Convert to Solar Power
Researchers claim a new technique could transform smelly, air-polluting landfill gas into a fuel cell that can generate clean energy for homes, offices and hospitals. The advance would convert methane gas into hydrogen, an efficient, clean form of energy. The researchers report is part of the 248th National Meeting of the American Chemical … Continue reading One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Clean Energy
Physicists at the University of Kansas have created an innovative substance from two different atomic sheets that interlock like Lego toy bricks. The researchers said the new material, made of a layer of graphene and a layer of tungsten disulfide, could be used in solar cells and flexible electronics. Hsin-Ying Chiu, assistant professor … Continue reading New Innovative Substance to be used in Solar Cells and Flexible Electronics
