National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Japan scientists have evaluated the economic efficiency of hydrogen production systems combining photovoltaic power generation and rechargeable batteries and estimated technology levels necessary for the systems to produce hydrogen at a globally competitive cost. The results obtained in this research may provide vital guidelines for pushing the intermittent […]

University of Manchester scientists have used a Nobel-prize winning chemistry technique on a mixture of metals to potentially reduce the cost of fuel cells used in electric cars and reduce harmful emissions from conventional vehicles. The researchers have translated a biological technique to reveal atomic scale chemistry in metal nanoparticles. These materials are one of […]

Vienna University of Technology’s new experimental results may change the way we think about making high-temperature superconductors. The results suggest a new way to the ‘holy grail of solid state physics’ – the high-temperature superconductor which works at room temperature. Every standard cable, every wire, every electronic device has some electric resistance. There are, however, […]

Researchers at the University of Delaware-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) and investigators from its partner institutions are working to develop a strategy for making lubricants from biomass. Lubricants are essential for a modern economy keeping the world moving while they take a noteworthy amount of crude oil supply for base stock. The new […]

Texas A&M University researchers are one step closer to realizing their goal of creating a battery made entirely of polymers, which has the potential to charge and discharge much faster than traditional batteries. Polymers, a shorter smaller molecule than plastic, may offer a much better future to rechargeable batteries. A major hurdle to creating a […]
