MIT researchers have for the first time developed a supercapacitor that uses no conductive carbon at all. The new supercapacitors could potentially produce more power than existing versions of this technology. Energy storage devices called supercapacitors have become a hot area of research, in part because they can be charged rapidly and deliver intense bursts […]

Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists have discovered a new phenomenon of perovskite that could have practical applications. Perovskites are expected to have applications in solar cells, rechargeable battery electrodes, and water-splitting devices. When one type of perovskite, known as BSCF for its constituents of barium, strontium, cobalt, and iron, is exposed to both water vapor and […]

Researchers from the Solar Energy Institute at the Universidad Polit├ęcnica de Madrid (UPM) are developing a new energy storage system in which the entry energy, either from solar energy or surplus electricity from a renewable power generation, is stored in the form of heat in molten silicon at very high temperature, around 1400┬░ C. The […]

University of Leiden physicists have directly observed the molecules produced in the synthetic fuel chemical production process. The new technique paves the way for designing more efficient catalysts. So far petroleum oil still serves as our primary source of fuel, even though a much cleaner alternative exists in the form of synthetic fuel. Synthetic fuel […]

Researchers at the University of Houston and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have reported a substantial advance in generating electricity through a combination of concentrating solar power and thermoelectric materials. The research group demonstrated an efficiency of 7.4 percent but reported that based upon their calculations, the device could achieve an efficiency of 9.6 percent. Their […]
