A team, led by the University of Tokyo in Japan, has developed a hybrid material that effectively transports protons at high temperatures and humidity – two major challenges of prior work. Protons are the next big thing when it comes to fuel cell technology. The subatomic exchange produces power on a scale that challenges contemporary […]

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists have discovered a new catalyst material’s ability to significantly improve lithium-sulfur battery life, opening doors to their near-future practical commercial realization. Lithium-sulfur batteries, given their light weight and theoretical high capacities, are a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries for large-scale energy storage systems, drones, electric vehicles, […]

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 […]

An Earlham Institute new study shows theMiscanthus genus of grasses can be grown in lower agricultural grade conditions – such as marginal land – due to their remarkable resilience and photosynthetic capacity at low temperatures. Some grasses are a sustainable energy source that could be a driving force towards achieving net zero carbon emissions, according […]
