An international research team led by scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has invented a ‘smart’ window material that controls heat transmission without blocking views, which could help cut the energy required to cool and heat buildings. Developed by NTU researchers, the new energy-saving material for electrochromic (EC) windows that operates at the […]

Currently solar panels come in two main forms, photovoltaic panels to harvest visible light for electricity production and thermal panels to harvest the infrared spectrum for heat.  In a paper published in Nature Photonics, University of Toronto Engineering (UTE) researchers report a new solar cell that may pave the way to inexpensive coatings that convert […]
