Linköping University researchers in Sweden have developed a molecule that absorbs energy from sunlight and stores it in chemical bonds. A possible long-term use of the molecule is to capture solar energy efficiently and store it for later consumption. The team’s research paper has been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, JACS. […]

Researchers led by Shanhui Fan from Stanford University have designed an off-grid, low-cost modular energy source that can efficiently produce power at night. The system uses commercially available technology and could eventually help meet the need for nighttime lighting in urban areas or provide lighting in developing countries. Although solar power brings many benefits, its […]

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 […]

Texas A&M University researchers have designed a smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities affected by power outages. The researchers said their single device works by improving energy delivery between home solar-power systems and the electrical grid. Dr. Le Xie, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering said, “Our innovation […]

Each year, wind turbines are responsible for the death of uncountable hundreds of thousands of airborne animals such as birds and bats. To find a constructive way out of this ”green-green” dilemma, companies building and running wind turbines might have to work together with environmental experts and conservationists. Yet a lack of trust between them […]
