Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have gained attention for their high power-conversion efficiencies and low-cost solution processing. However, ensuring their stability at […]

A University of Leeds research team analyzed several scenarios to identify a potential solution to identify the fairest and most equitable way that governments can curtail energy use, a process known as energy demand reduction. The big challenge is said to be that consumers in the richer, developed nations will have to accept restrictions on […]

Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers are reporting that mathematical modeling can show how to safely blend hydrogen with natural gas for transport in existing pipeline systems. A secure and reliable transition to hydrogen is one of the proposed solutions for the shift to a net-zero-carbon economy. Anatoly Zlotnik, a co-author of a new paper on […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Edith Cowan University’s recent study into the advancement of sustainable battery systems suggests zinc-air batteries have emerged as a better alternative to lithium chemistries. The research paper reporting the research and the results has been published in the journal EcoMat. Edith Cowan University’s (ECU) Dr Muhammad Rizwan Azhar led the project which discovered lithium-ion […]

Chiba University researchers show the hydrogen evolution reaction activity of a GoldNickel/Gold electrocatalyst increases due to surface defects formed via Nickel dealloying. Gold (Au)-based electrocatalysts used for hydrogen production via water electrolysis exhibit high chemical stability but low hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) activity. Alloying them with nickel (Ni) can improve their HER activity. Now, a […]
