Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Warwick researchers propose densifying ceramics using flash sintering reducing energy use and may be used to improve the viability of manufacturing complex ceramic structures such as those required for solid state batteries by lowering the temperatures and shortening the duration of the heat treatment. Flash sintering is a ceramic processing technique […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A new research study from KU Leuven and VUB on sensitive geopolitical conflict around the Ethiopian mega-dam shows that several disagreements between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt around Africa’s largest hydropower plant, the new Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD), could be alleviated by massively expanding solar and wind power across the region. Sebastian Sterl, energy […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) team of researchers has designed a ‘smart’ device to harvest daylight and relay it to underground spaces, reducing the need to draw on traditional energy sources for lighting. In Singapore, authorities are looking at the feasibility of digging deeper underground to create new space for infrastructure, storage, […]

One prospective source of renewable energy is hydrogen gas produced from water with the aid of sunlight. Researchers at Linköping University, Sweden, have developed a material, nanoporous cubic silicon carbide, that exhibits promising properties to capture solar energy and split water for hydrogen gas production. The team’s research paper has been published in the journal […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) scientists have developed a simple way to better evaluate the potential of novel materials to store or release heat on demand in your home, office, or other building in a way that more efficiently manages the building’s energy use. Their work product, featured in Nature Energy, proposes a new […]
