A serendipitous scientific discovery by researchers at the National University of Singapore could potentially revolutionize the way water is broken down to release hydrogen gas. The team found that light can trigger a new mechanism in a catalytic material used extensively in water electrolysis, where water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen. The result […]

University of Cambridge researchers have discovered a potential new method for making high-performance magnets. They could be used in wind turbines and electric cars without the need for rare earth elements. The rare earth elements are almost exclusively sourced in China. The team from the University of Cambridge, working with colleagues from Austria, found a […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tandem solar cells made of perovskite and silicon enable significantly higher efficiencies than silicon solar cells alone. By the end of 2021, teams at HZB (Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energiehad) presented perovskite silicon tandem solar cells with an efficiency close to 30 percent. This value was a world record for eight months, a […]

A study led by researchers at the Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation (CABBI) improves understanding of leaf functional relationships and provides valuable new information for scientists modeling the productivity of C4 bioenergy crops. The research team found that miscanthus and sorghum – both C4 plant species – occupy a distinct niche of the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Coming up with the minerals for producing and using energy and fuels will require a wide range of critical metals. One of these rare earth elements, tellurium for example, is gaining in popularity for use in photovoltaics, or solar panels. As global demand for solar panels continues to increase, so is the need for […]
