Efforts to shift away from fossil fuels and replace oil and coal with renewable energy sources can help reduce carbon emissions but do so at the expense of increased inequality, according to a new Portland State University study. Portland State University’s Julius McGee, assistant professor of sociology in PSU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, […]

A University of Michigan finding runs counter to a common assumption in physics. The researchers ran a light emitting diode (LED) with electrodes reversed in order to cool another device mere nanometers away. The approach could lead to new solid-state cooling technology for future microprocessors, which will have so many transistors packed into a small […]

For the fields of energy and fuels it has been a very good year. The current mainstay of energy, oil and gas, has been quite good for consumers this past year. The U.S. oil and gas industry has shown how impressive, even in the midst of prices actually a bit too low, that enterprise, research, […]

Harvard researchers have developed an improved system to use renewable electricity to reduce carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide to recycle carbon dioxide. Imagine a day when – rather than being spewed into the atmosphere – the gases coming from power plants and heavy industry are instead captured and fed into catalytic reactors that chemically transform […]

A Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) team of researchers has introduced a novel technology that promises to significantly boost the performance of lithium metal batteries. In a study published in Advanced Materials, the UNIST team introduced a novel technology that promises to significantly boost the performance of lithium metal batteries, a promising […]
