Aug. 24, 2015 — In the most comprehensive analysis of electricity reliability trends in the United States, researchers have found that, while, on average, the frequency of power outages has not changed in recent ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — A group of scientists has replaced diesel with kinetic energy, saving up to 20 thousand liters of fuel annually, they say, adding that this includes a series of energetically self-sustained boxes for ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Finding a technology to shift carbon dioxide, the most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity has long been a dream. Now, a team of chemists says ... read more

Solar Cell Efficiency Could Double With Novel 'Green' Antenna

Aug. 18, 2015 — The use of solar energy in the US is growing, but panels on rooftops are still a rare sight. They cost thousands of dollars, and homeowners don't recoup costs for years. But scientists may have ... read more

Aug. 18, 2015 — New research findings contradict a fundamental assumption about the functioning of 'organic' solar cells made of low-cost plastics, suggesting a new strategy for creating inexpensive solar ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — By combining information about power plant operation with real-time air quality predictions, researchers have created a new capability to minimize the human health effects of air pollution resulting ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — The ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN has made a precise measurement of the difference between ratios of the mass and electric charge of light nuclei and antinuclei. The ... read more

Aug. 17, 2015 — A blue glowing device the size of a peppercorn can activate neurons of the brain, spinal cord or limbs in mice and is powered wirelessly using the mouse's own body to transfer energy. The device ... read more

Aug. 12, 2015 — Researchers have developed a manufacturing technique that could double the electricity output of inexpensive solar cells by using a microscopic rake when applying light-harvesting ... read more

Flexible, Biodegradable Device Can Generate Power from Touch

Aug. 12, 2015 — Long-standing concerns about portable electronics include the devices' short battery life and their contribution to e-waste. One group of scientists is now working on a way to address both of ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Used in everything from cell phones to supercomputers, tiny electronic circuits contain transistors that generate performance-compromising heat. Circuit designers can “see” how temperatures ... read more

Aug. 11, 2015 — Researchers have discovered a new way to levitate liquid droplets, which surprisingly also creates a mini light show, with the droplet sparking as it floats above a faint blue glowing gap. The ... read more

Aug. 10, 2015 — Wind energy pricing is at an all-time low, according to a new report. The prices offered by wind projects to utility purchasers averaged under 2.5¢/kWh for projects negotiating contracts in 2014, ... read more

Aug. 10, 2015 — Advances in magnet technology have enabled researchers to propose a new design for a practical compact tokamak fusion reactor -- and it's one that might be realized in as little as a decade, ... read more

Aug. 7, 2015 — The chemical reactions that make methanol from carbon dioxide rely on a catalyst to speed up the conversion, and scientists identified a new material that could fill this role. With its unique ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — Chemists have discovered an unexpected way to use plasmonic metal, harvesting the high energy electrons excited by light in plasmon and then using this energy to do chemistry. Plasmon is a collective ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — Easily manufactured, low cost, lightweight, flexible dielectric polymers that can operate at high temperatures may be the solution to energy storage and power conversion in electric vehicles and ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — A research team has succeeded to reinforce the Petawatt 3 laser 'LFEX' to deliver up to 2,000 trillion watts in the duration of one-trillionth of one second. This corresponds to 1,000 times ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — A new tool to forecast for future energy needs has been developed. Researchers say that is up to 50 percent more accurate than several commonly used industry tools, showing potential to save millions ... read more

Aug. 5, 2015 — One big problem faced by electrodes in rechargeable batteries, as they go through repeated cycles of charging and discharging, is that they must expand and shrink during each cycle -- sometimes ... read more
