A new University at Buffalo study describes a new technology that provides both radiative cooling and solar heating, all in one system and without using electricity or fuel. It could help impoverished communities, reduce cooling and heating costs, lower CO2 emissions. It’s passive cooling like a shade tree provides. The researchers have been exploring how […]

A team of researchers at the University of California San Diego and the California-based company ZPower have developed a flexible, rechargeable silver oxide-zinc battery with a five to 10 times greater areal energy density than today’s state of the art. The battery also is easier to manufacture; while most flexible batteries need to be manufactured […]

An international team led by University of Groningen has now produced an n-type organic semiconductor with superior properties that brings organic thermoelectric material a big step closer. Thermoelectric materials can turn a temperature difference into electricity. Organic thermoelectric materials could be used to power wearable electronics or sensors; however, the power output is still very […]

Incheon National University scientists have announced a novel transparent solar cell design using thin silicon films, with efficient power generation. Solar power has shown immense potential as a futuristic, ‘clean’ source of energy. Its not a wonder environmentalists worldwide have been looking for ways to advance the current solar cell technology. Now, scientists have put […]

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists have discovered that the amount of alkali metal introduced into crystals of flexible thin-film solar cells influences the path that charge carriers take to traverse between electrodes, thereby affecting the light-to-electricity conversion efficiency of the solar cell. The press release asserts that given the immense application potential […]
