NREL Heats Up Thermal Energy Storage with New Solution Meant To Ease Grid Stress, Ultimately Improving Energy Efficiency
Scientists from the NREL have developed a simple way to better evaluate the potential of novel materials to store or release heat on demand in your home, office, or other building in a way that more efficiently manages the building's energy use.
University of Texas at Dallas researcher Dr. Todd Griffith has spent years working on an offshore turbine design that can convert those deep-ocean winds into electricity. Recently, Griffith received a $3.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to take his technology to the next level.
No matter if it's a flashlight or a Tesla: They don't work without a battery. But what is the battery technology of the future? Researchers all over the world are looking for new solutions.
C4V Chemistry is a phosphate-based composite cathode that utilises low-cost materials, molecular doping of lithium rich bio-mineral in super-cell of crystal structure.
Among those who support a nationwide solar mandate, 32% said they strongly support it and 38% said they somewhat support it, while approximately 16% said they somewhat oppose it and 14% said they strongly oppose it.
Researchers at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology create center to research development of safer and more reliable solid-state batteries.
A Loughborough University PhD student has helped shed light on a solar panel puzzle that could lead to more efficient devices being developed.
Public report from PV Evolution Labs reveals over 20% of tested solar inverters failed safety and reliability tests while others had strong performance following testing.
The term betavoltaic is interchangeable with atomic battery, nuclear battery, tritium battery and radioisotope generator. They are used to designate a device, which expends energy from the decay of a radioactive isotope to produce electricity.
Scientists at the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) work to refine the technique called hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE), which holds the potential to produce cheaper, more efficient solar cells capable of producing more electricity.
CHS, or cyclohexasilane (Si6H12), is an excellent Si precursor, many say the best source for the atom Si. The silicon atom has wide ranging chemical characteristics; from semiconductor chips to silicone caulk to Si oxide (glass).
Generating power from the sun isnt the problem. The technology has been there for decades. Storing that power efficiently, however, has been a challenge. Until now.
A quantum dot solar cell (QDSC) is a solar cell that uses quantum dots as the captivating photovoltaic material. It is used to replace bulky materials such as silicon, or copper indium gallium selenide.
How do you identify the ideal molecular structure for a solar absorber or, perhaps, for a drug supplied as a powder of molecular crystals? The computing power of one of the worlds most advanced supercomputers can help.
UT Dallas researchers use supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to develop methods that can improve wind energy production.
