Penn State scientists have designed a new flexible thermoelectric generator that can wrap around pipes and other hot surfaces and convert wasted heat into electricity more efficiently than previously possible. The energy systems that power our lives also produce wasted heat – like heat that radiates off hot water pipes in buildings and exhaust pipes […]

The researchers sought to overcome the slow charging times of conventional lithium-ion batteries and have developed a new anode material that allows […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new water-splitting process with a material that maximizes the efficiency of producing hydrogen. The researchers expect to make it an affordable and accessible option for industrial partners that want to convert to green hydrogen for renewable energy storage instead of conventional, carbon-emitting hydrogen production from natural […]

Kyoto University researchers have described how nanodiamond-reinforced composite membranes can purify hydrogen from its humid mixtures, making the hydrogen generation processes vastly more efficient and cost-effective. Hydrogen, a clean-burning fuel, leaves nothing but water when combusted. Many countries view hydrogen as a way to a zero-carbon future, but switching to a hydrogen economy requires its […]
