Reducing greenhouse gas emissions with a more effective carbon capture methodWed, 04 Mar 2015 11:03:54 EST
Trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power plants and various industries could play a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the future. But current materials that can collect CO2 -- from smokestacks, for example -- have low capacities or require very high temperatures to work. Scientists are making progress toward a more efficient alternative that could help make carbon capture less energy intensive. Solar cells to get growth boost, price cutWed, 04 Mar 2015 07:52:14 EST
Researchers have found that growing a type of film used to manufacture solar cells in ambient air gives it a growth boost. The finding could make manufacturing solar cells significantly cheaper. Researchers discover new material to produce clean energyTue, 03 Mar 2015 14:17:38 EST
Researchers have created a new thermoelectric material, intended to generate electric power from waste heat -- from a vehicle tailpipe, for example, or an industrial smokestack -- with greater efficiency and higher output power than currently available materials. Blend of polymers could one day make solar power lighter, cheaper and more efficientMon, 02 Mar 2015 10:52:01 EST
Scientists are reporting advances on how to one day make solar cells stronger, lighter, more flexible and less expensive when compared with the current silicon or germanium technology on the market. Supersonic electrons could produce future solar fuelMon, 02 Mar 2015 09:17:10 EST
Researchers have taken a step closer to producing solar fuel using artificial photosynthesis. In a new study, they have successfully tracked the electrons’ rapid transit through a light-converting molecule.
