Energy Storage Devices are very important for the adoption of renewable energy. Capacitors are a key components in pretty much all types of electronic and electric power circuits. The are designed to quickly charge up to the required voltage and very quickly discharge when needed. They are very good at smoothing out power and […]

Geothermal Energy Technology is Available Now. Geothermal heating and cooling technology varies from ground air and ground water systems to deep ground systems that extract heat from trapped steam. This technology has the potential to replace fossil fuels and help to relieve the CO2 stress that we are putting on the atmosphere and oceans of […]

The Well Named World¬†Solar Car Challenge. Designing and building a car that can safely carry a person through the inhospitable Australian outback is a challenge for any team. Making one that is powered only by the sun and is faster and more reliable than any other team’s car is what separates the winners from the […]

There are Several Ways to be able to Disconnect from the Power Grid. There is a well known process for changing wood or coal into a flammable gas that can be used for combustion elsewhere. When hydrocarbons are heated in an environment that is low on oxygen you get a combination of gases that come […]

We Need a Step Change in Development of Energy Saving Power Devices and Solar cells. Semiconductors are what make computers, cell phones and x-boxes possible. Over the last 50 years the quality, size and cost for fabrication have all improved dramatically and you can see the results in what is now available for consumers. Solar […]

All Forms of Renewable Energy Are Needed. If we are too change the current direction of climate change around the world or at least put ourselves in a position that we are not making the problem worse we are going to have to start thinking of energy in an entirely different way. Coal and oil […]

Pelamis Wave Energy Celebrates 10 Years in the Water. Wave energy has the potential to replace coal generated electricity in many places around the world. Designing and building a device that is capable of withstanding the rigors of ocean life while providing clean energy to the mainland requires some very rigorous engineering indeed.

A New World Energy Mix Must Be Well Planned. Changing the direction of the energy path for the world is no small task and is akin to turning an ocean liner moving at full speed, 180 degrees. We need a pathway to move from oil,natural gas and coal burning technologies to wind, solar, biomass and […]

Automated Ground Vehicle with Electric Drive. Automatic guided vehicles for non industrial purposes such as military or security ( or landing on other planets or asteroids) offer operators the ability to remotely access areas that are in some ways dangerous or hazardous. These vehicles or machines have been limited by the power source or fuel […]

To the growing list of two-dimensional semiconductors, such as graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenum disulfide, whose unique electronic properties make them potential successors to silicon in future devices, you can now add hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. However, unlike the other contenders, which are covalent semiconductors, these 2D hybrid perovskites are ionic materials, which gives them special […]
