Producing Fuels and Chemicals In A Very Different Way. Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have discovered a natural process they describe as reverse photosynthesis. In the process, the energy in solar rays breaks down, rather than builds plant material, as is the case with photosynthesis. The sunlight is collected by chlorophyll, the same molecule […]

When it comes to indoor lighting, nothing beats the sun’s rays streaming in through windows. Soon, that natural light could be shining through walls, too. Scientists have developed transparent wood that could be used in building materials and could help home and building owners save money on their artificial lighting costs.

Using Tomato Waste To Make Electricity. The world needs to move away from burning fossil fuels for energy. The time has come to abandon primitive unsustainable forms of energy for renewable ones. It turns out that there are many new forms of renewable energy being discovered now that we are really looking for them.

What the World Needs Is More Efficient Solar Cells. Solar pv technology has made fantastic strides in becoming a viable replacement for electricity made from oil,gas or coal in the last few years. However in general the efficiency of modern solar cells is relatively low compared to solar thermal or other forms of electric generation. New […]

New Research Making Renewable Energy More Practical. Economical, reliable and efficient energy storage devices are the key to moving forward past fossil fuels to a society powered by clean renewable energy. Solar PV and wind energy technology provide clean power but it is from an intermittent source. To smooth this we need energy storage options and […]

Renewable Bio-Energy From An Unexpected Source. When you think of fuel cells you probably think of hydrogen fuel being combined with oxygen to produce clean electricity and producing only clean water. Or maybe you have no idea at all about fuel cell technology. Either way this new type of fuel cell is not powered in […]

A New Technology for Portable Power. The race for the perfect battery is running against the clock around the world as researchers work to solve the energy storage needs of renewable energy sources. Modern batteries utilize a chemical reaction to produce electron flow and as such are limited by the availability of metals such as […]
