Mar. 18, 2016 — Solar fuels, clean fuels from sunlight, water and CO2, form an attractive way for storing solar energy in hydrogen or hydrocarbons, for example. The efficiency of this technology still needs a ... read more

Mar. 17, 2016 — Biogas is an important energy source that plays a central role in the energy revolution. Unlike wind or solar energy, biogas can be produced around the clock. Could it soon perhaps even be produced ... read more

Mar. 17, 2016 — A new study tracks down the origin of bats killed by wind turbines in the Appalachian region using stable isotope and genetic analysis in hopes of better understanding the risks to affected ... read more

Researchers Crack 50-Year-Old Nuclear Waste Problem, Make Storage Safer

Mar. 16, 2016 — Researchers have adapted a technology developed for solar energy in order to selectively remove one of the trickiest and most-difficult-to-remove elements in nuclear waste pools across the country, ... read more

Mar. 16, 2016 — Hype followed by disappointment: That's been the general pattern over the past few decades when an alternative fuel is presented to the public. It's a fuel du jour phenomenon, from methanol ... read more

New Fuel Materials Could Make Nuclear Reactors Safer

Mar. 16, 2016 — Nuclear power is an important energy source and is essential as a clean energy to reduce current carbon emissions from fossil fuels. However, many people feel the risk of nuclear accidents does not ... read more

Mar. 16, 2016 — Nearly four billion years ago, life arose on Earth. Life appeared because our planet had a rocky surface, liquid water, and a blanketing atmosphere. But life thrived thanks to another necessary ... read more

How More Research and Development Funding Can Hasten Green Revolution

Mar. 15, 2016 — A uniquely detailed model of the dynamics of innovation in the energy industry has been explained in a new article. In so doing, researchers indicate how supporting clean energy R&D, not just a ... read more

Mar. 8, 2016 — Researchers have determined the most climate-friendly use of natural gas is replacement of existing coal-fired power plants and fuel-oil furnaces rather than burning it in cars and ... read more
