Awesome Mini Generator Extracts Energy From Saltwater

Where freshwater and saltwater meet, you get energy. Where freshwater meets saltwater, Aleksandra Radenovic sees a wold of untapped renewable energy. Radenovic is a nanoscientist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and today she published the schematics of a brand new type of flat, membrane-like power generator. The generator siphons energy from the process […]

Scientists Discover New Process Converting Waste Heat Into Usable Electricity

This new material could allow power plants to recycle their waste heat and improve their efficiency. A group of researchers have developed a new material that can be used to turn waste heat into electricity. This technology could allow power plants to recycle their waste heat and save money, while reducing our fossil fuel consumption […]

Recycled Grass Clippings Could Perhaps Heat Your Home

A British renewable energy company intends to use grass from abandoned fields and meadows as a fuel source. The gas that heats your home might come from the grass beneath your feet, at least if British renewable energy company Ecotricity is successful. Ecotricity, one of the world’s first renewable energy companies, is building a ‘green […]

Science is now One Step Closer to Using Algae for Bio-fuel

A breakthrough by a team of scientists makes algae a potentially viable source of biofuel. The world is trying to wean itself off of fossil fuels. It’s vital we reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible in the next few decades, and many countries, states, cities, businesses, and people are committing to that goal. […]

Public Urinal Generates Electricity from Urine

THE COMETH OF PEE POWER IS UPON US Pee can be transformed into electricity with the help of bacterial metabolism, thanks to a device created by researchers at the University of the West of England, where Spanish researchers are working. A test cubicle was installed at Glastonbury festival, but the final aim is to improve […]

Taming the Oceans for 24hrs a day Power & Energy Generation

Fossil fuels propelled the Industrial Revolution and subsequent technological advances. However, our future cannot be based on them, if only because they are a finite resource; and we are very close to exhausting them. Solar and wind power is often seen as the main locomotive of the energy revolution. However, it is becoming increasingly clear […]

Preparing For Large-scale Solar Deployment

Deploying solar power at the scale needed to alleviate climate change will pose serious challenges for today’s electric power system, finds a study performed by researchers at MIT and the Institute for Research and Technology (ITT) at Comillas University in Spain. For example, local power networks will need to handle both incoming and outgoing flows […]

Breakthrough rectenna converts light into DC current video shows

Rectifying antennas – “rectennas” – are used as parasitic power capture devices that absorb radio frequency (RF) energy and convert it into usable electrical power. Constructing such devices to absorb and rectify at optical wavelengths has proved impractical in the past, but the advent of carbon nanotubes and advances in microscopic manufacturing technology have allowed […]

THE STORY OF THE TESLA ELECTRIC CARS AS THE FUTURE IN THIS BLOOMBERG FULL VIDEO DOCUMENTARY

ELON MUSK BILLIONAIRE EXTRAORDINARY TESLA ENERGY ON ELECTRIC CARS Published on 10 Jun 2014 Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) — “Bloomberg Risk Takers” profiles Elon Musk, the entrepreneur who helped create PayPal, built America’s first viable fully electric car company, started the nation’s biggest solar energy supplier, and may make commercial space travel a reality in our […]

Urine to power lights in refugee camps

The project is led by Professor Ioannis Ieropoulus at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, he highlighted the green nature of the system when he said, “[T]his technology is about as green as it gets, as we do not need to utilize fossil fuels and we are effectively using a waste product that will be in plentiful […]
