Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) team of researchers has designed a ‘smart’ device to harvest daylight and relay it to underground spaces, reducing the need to draw on traditional energy sources for lighting. In Singapore, authorities are looking at the feasibility of digging deeper underground to create new space for infrastructure, storage, […]

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 […]

Consumers and utility companies have worried for years that solar panels drive up electricity costs for the people who don’t have panels. But Michigan Technological University renewable energy researchers show the opposite is actually true – grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) owners are actually subsidizing their non-PV neighbors. Beyond the environmental benefits and lower electric bills, […]

A new University at Buffalo study describes a new technology that provides both radiative cooling and solar heating, all in one system and without using electricity or fuel. It could help impoverished communities, reduce cooling and heating costs, lower CO2 emissions. It’s passive cooling like a shade tree provides. The researchers have been exploring how […]
