Engineers at Lancaster University have led research that discovered a way to generate renewable biofuel additives, using radiation that could be derived from nuclear waste. The renewable proportion of petroleum fuels is set to increase to 20 percent over the coming years, meaning the discovery of a new production pathway for such additives/biofuels could help […]

The now-familiar sight of traditional propeller wind turbines could be replaced in the future with wind farms containing more compact and efficient vertical turbines. New research from Oxford Brookes University has found that the vertical turbine design is far more efficient than traditional turbines in large scale wind farms, and when set in pairs the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers tried to make the case for prioritizing public policy to help move long-haul trucking from diesel to electric. The leading payoffs are being described as having huge gains in addressing the climate crisis and avoiding premature deaths due to local vehicular pollution, which disproportionately affects communities of color. Truck […]

As more states in the U.S. push for increased reliance on variable renewable energy in the form of wind or solar power, long-term energy storage may play an important role in assuring […]
