Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Linköping University researchers have, by way of a number of theoretical calculations, shown that magnesium diboride becomes superconductive at a higher temperature when it is stretched. The discovery is a big step toward finding superconductive materials that are useful in real-world situations. Erik Johansson, who recently completed his doctorate at the Division of Theoretical […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is suggesting triple-pane windows conserve energy, reduce noise, and lower home energy bills now that they are getting more affordable. Next generation triple-pane windows provide builders with lower cost options and help homeowners conserve energy, reduce noise, and lower home energy bills. “It’s time to make the switch to triple-pane windows.” […]

A National University of Singapore research team has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials. Their latest work demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 23.6%, approaching that of conventional silicon solar cells. This technological breakthrough paves the way for flexible, light-weight, low cost and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers have uncovered a way to improve the efficiency of a type of grid-scale storage crucial for a global transition toward renewable energy. OSU’s Nick AuYeung, who led the study along with Ph.D. student Fuqiong Lei note that moving toward net-zero carbon emissions means dealing with the intermittent, […]

Penn State scientists have designed a new flexible thermoelectric generator that can wrap around pipes and other hot surfaces and convert wasted heat into electricity more efficiently than previously possible. The energy systems that power our lives also produce wasted heat – like heat that radiates off hot water pipes in buildings and exhaust pipes […]
