Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have developed an all-season smart-roof coating that keeps homes warm during the winter and cool during the summer. The coating works without consuming natural gas or electricity. Research findings point to a groundbreaking technology that outperforms commercial cool-roof systems in energy savings. The paper reporting the findings has been published […]

Nanyang Technological University scientists have developed a material that can effectively self-adapt to heat or cool rooms across different climate zones. When coated on a glass window panel the material helps cut energy usage. The research paper by an international research team led by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has been published […]

University of Nottingham scientists have discovered a new process to break bulk metal into atoms to produce heterogeneous catalysts without any chemical waste. Its a technique that will lead to new sustainable ways of making and using molecules in the most atom efficient way. Researchers from the University of Nottingham have demonstrated that “naked” Pt […]

Queen Mary University of London researchers have developed a new process for producing stable perovskite materials to create more efficient solar cells. Currently crystalline silicon is the most widely used material for solar cells. However, over the last decade, perovskite solar cells, made from metal halide perovskite materials, have shown promise to make cheaper, and […]

A nickel-cobalt metal dimer on nitrogen-doped carbon can catalyze electrolysis under both acidic and basic conditions. Green hydrogen generated from the electrolysis of water using renewable electricity is considered a next-generation renewable energy source for the future. But in reality, the overwhelming majority of hydrogen fuel is obtained from the refining of fossils fuels due […]
