Meir showed how NRL's LEctenna™, a light-emitting rectifying antenna, converted a wireless network signal, similar to home networks, into electric power. While the current generated and light emitted was a small amount, the setup proved the concept in space.
Amid other problems, one of the UK's major challenges in modern times is how to tackle the ever-present issue of climate change. As our population and economy has grown dramatically, so has the pressure on the environment as the demand for energy spikes.
Three of the most valuable metals in the world are so rare that they could become a factor in the difference between global technological dominance and military superiority on one hand, and the loss of superpower status on the other.
The surging urban population and industrialization has resulted in a massive increase of waste generation every year. This trend is particularly growing across emerging economies.
The threat of climate change is looming over us more than ever and one of the burning questions of our time remains: 'how can we create a greener, more sustainable future that still allows businesses to thrive?'
"The cleantech sector is ideal for robotics innovation. We believe disruptive ideas will come from startups committed to solving energy challenges using robots, and we want to provide an environment for them at MassRobotics"
DLS, a national label converter, finds a cost-effective waste management solution that saves 2 million pounds of label matrix annually from reaching landfills while providing a clean burning fuel source for energy companies.
Wind power supporters organize nearly 30 events nationwide in recognition of U.S. leadership in wind power and its benefits
The new panel breaks fresh ground for REC and the industry: this is the first solar panel to combine n-type mono half-cut cells with a twin-panel design, and promises excellent power output of up to 330 watt peak allied to lasting performance.
This is a major breakthrough in metabolic engineering and exhibits a foundational milestone in sustainable and cost-effective production of renewable biofuels and chemicals.
Sarah Fecht for Popular Science: The experiment is set to fly to the space station this week
Tom Randall for Bloomberg: Elon Musk says orders will begin today. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.
Jess Shankleman , Brian Parkin , and Anna Hirtenstein for Bloomberg: Offshore wind turbines are about to become higher than the Eiffel Tower, allowing the industry to supply subsidy-free clean power to the grid on a massive scale for the first time.
Ian Johnson for Independent: A record-breaking solar panel that can convert more than a quarter of the sunlight it receives into electricity has been developed by researchers in Japan.
Anmar Frangoul for CNBC: The European Commission has awarded 4.4 million euros ($4.63 million) in funding to a European tidal energy consortium to demonstrate innovative technology for tidal turbines. The consortium, led by Scotland's Nova Innovation, will use the funding to demo and show a "direct drive power take-off (PTO) solution" for tidal turbines. According to Nova Innovation, this technology could help to cut the lifetime cost of tidal power by 20 percent. The project will be known as TiPA (standing for Tidal turbine Power take-off Accelerator) and run for 36 months. Organizations involved in the project include Siemens, the University of Edinburgh, and Delft Technical University, among others. Cont'd...
