Washington State University (WSU) researchers have developed the first fuel cell that can directly convert jet fuel or gasoline to electricity. If the fuel cell will scale up economically that could take the 30 mpg automobile beyond 100 mpg. Its a dramatically more energy efficient way to create electric power for planes or cars. The […]

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft researchers have developed a compact, safe and sturdy fuel cell system that generates electricity and heat in private households from natural gas. The new fuel cell converts chemical energy directly into electrical energy in a design developed as a simple device for home use. If the design is scaleable it might be a market […]

The new aluminum air battery would recharge by filling it up with water. A no plug in electric car? That might sell, but its not the whole story. Alcoa Canada and Canadian clean technology company Phinergy have introduced a zero-emissions electric demo car powered by the revolutionary aluminum air battery. The team of companies are […]

Jaeyoung Park and the team at Energy Matter Conversion Corporation (EMC2) have released a research paper (with videos) discussing the results from a scaled down version of the late Dr. Robert Bussard’s famous wiffleball method of seeking a viable net energy fusion reactor. The paper simply reports experimental results validating the concept that plasma confinement […]

University of Central Florida nanotechnology scientists Professor Jayan Thomas and his Ph.D. student Zenan Yu have developed a way to both transmit and store electricity in a single lightweight copper wire. Sounds incredible, but it may become a reality. Today electrical cables are used only to carry electricity. This is a very impressive research feat. […]
