Latest Studies Open New Doors in Solar Power Utilization

With constant innovations hitting the frontiers of solar power research, two recent studies provide a glimpse of new opportunities in way we are harnessing this source of energy.

How Solar Is Improving The Boat Industry

If the shipping industry were a country, it would place sixth on the most carbon emission generating countries in the world. The good news is that solar in maritime transport is improving.

Plastic to Fuel Conversion: An Elegant Solution to Two Major Environmental Concerns

The process relies on heat and pressure to break down the long hydrogen, carbon and oxygen polymers that make up plastics. From there, these elements are recombined into the shorter hydrocarbon chains that can be effectively burned as diesel or gasoline.

2013 Nanotechnology Patent Literature Review

For nanotechnology patent literature as a whole, Energy Storage, Photovoltaics and Petroleum Exploration emerged as the top three areas of focus in the Energy sector, each with similar growth since the early 2000s.

An Uncertain Future for Quantum Computing?

Quantum computing is here to shake the existing mechanical, electrical and electronic systems. Modern electronics in particular will not be the same if quantum computing gains acceptance. There're voices of support as well as dissent. In this post, we'll analyze future trends in quantum computing. Keep reading!

VOTO - Charging Batteries in a Fire

One half of the VOTO is a fuel cell and the second half is a handle which has a light, cell phone adapter and nickel-metal hydride battery to store energy.

Big Data for Solar

Helping Fleet Managers Streamline Operations and Management Functions

Vanderbilt Proposes Building Energy Storage Into Solar Cells

Imagine a photovoltaic cell or module that actually stores as well as produces energy, acting as a battery and producing power even after dark.

More Power to You: Marines Boost Energy, Lighten Load

The Marine Austere Patrolling System (MAPS) combines solar power and an individual water purifier to help lighten the load of Marines conducting lengthy missions in remote locations with few or no options for resupply.

What is osmotic power?

There are enormous benefits with osmotic power, namely that it's the cleanest, most reliable source of renewable energy on the planet, it is always available and more cost-effective than solar or wind power, has a small ecological footprint and it recycles natures resources (seawater or wastewater).

Ceramics Provide High Voltage Insulation For Unique Gas Plasma Engine

Electric propulsion satellites part of new and greener space technology.

Solving Turbine Wake Issues in Dense Development Areas

Using a specialized wake model, 3TIER is able to help clients take into account the impact of external wakes on the final net energy numbers they must take to their project stakeholders and financing partners.

IBM's Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecaster

The Hybrid Renewable Energy Forecasting (HyREF) solution combines big data analytics and weather modeling technology to accurately forecast the availability of wind power and solar energy.

Solar Cell Efficiency Levels; What Does it Mean for Me?

The technology breakthroughs that are helping solar cells approach 50 percent efficiency levels are encouraging, but everyday applications are still years away.

MicroPower Ready To Realise The Potential Of Thermoelectrics For Waste Heat Recovery

Thermoelectrics is a means of utilising thermal energy by converting it to electrical energy so that, when there is a heat differential between the opposing sides of certain semiconductor materials, the difference in temperatures causes the electrons in the material to move, creating an electric current.
