Researchers have created a micro-scale biological solar cell that generates a higher power density for longer than any existing cell of its kind.
Wind and solar power are increasingly popular sources for renewable energy. But intermittency issues keep them from connecting widely to the grid.
A prototype for an ultra-thin, sinuous concrete roof using innovative design and fabrication methods. A second, exterior layer of the concrete sandwich structure encloses the roof, onto which thin-film photovoltaic cells are installed.
StreamCube is a scalable, cube-shaped water wheel that might be what the market has been waiting for to make tidal power commercially viable.
Scientists have long searched for the next generation of materials that can catalyze a revolution in renewable energy harvesting and storage.
As a warming world moves from fossil fuels toward renewable solar and wind energy, industrial forecasts predict an insatiable need for battery farms to store power and provide electricity when the sky is dark and the air is still.
