University of British Columbia researchers can show how a ‘Cold Tube’ can offer relief from the summer heat without relying on air conditioning. A Cold Tube uses half the energy of conventional air conditioners and can be used outdoors or indoors. Many people beat the summer heat by cranking the air conditioning. However, air conditioners […]

A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) theoretical study suggests that small changes in roadway paving practices could reduce efficiency loss, potentially eliminating a half-percent of the total greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, at little to no cost.  (One suspects that would also mean a half percent reduction in fuel use.) Every time you […]

A University of Michigan researcher group has developed a solution that could provide more efficient, more personalized comfort, completely doing away with the wall-mounted thermostats we’re accustomed to. The study paper describes a Human Embodied Autonomous Thermostat, or “HEAT,” that is detailed in the study published in Building and Environment. As lockdown requirements ease, COVID-19 […]

Researchers led by M. M. Bou-Ali from the Fluid Mechanics group at Mondragon University and Tecnalia in Spain, have found that the absorption of water vapor within industrial heat recycling devices is directly tied to a physical process known as the thermodiffusion effect. Absorption heat transformers can effectively reuse the waste heat generated in various […]

UK’s Lancaster University scientists have invented and patented a new type of computer memory to solve the digital technology “energy crisis”. The device is the realization of the decades long search for a ‘Universal Memory’ to replace the $100 billion market for Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) and flash drives. It promises to transform daily […]
