Two companies called Statkraft and Wetsus are trying to develop an alternative that provides low-cost renewable energy by harnessing energy from the sea water and clash of river.
Milan Karki, a young inventor who comes from a village in rural Nepal, has created a new type of solar panel made from human hair, which could provide the world with green and cheap electricity.
New researcher conducted by an international team of researchers from U.S. and China have developed a process that cleans wastewater and generates electricity. Clean water for drinking, washing and industrial uses is a scarce resource in some parts of the world.
Every day scientists and inventors are searching new green sources of energy to combat global warming and energy crisis. The “Green Roadway” project, as it’s dubbed, aims to string wind turbine, solar panels and geothermal devices along the endless ribbons of pavement, where they’ll be linked to produce energy for businesses, homes and even roadside [...]
NGK Insulators Ltd developed a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that achieved a lower heating value (LHV) of 63%, one of the highest in the world and uses hydrogen gas as fuel. The SOFC features an operating temperature of 800°C and a power output of 700W.
A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution and California State University identifies New York as a prime location for exploiting high-altitude winds, which globally contain enough energy to meet world demand 100 times over. The scientists found that the regions best suited for harvesting this energy match with population centers in the eastern [...]
The company Elah Valley Energy Engineering based in Israel, has developed a next-generation smart energy meter called the “Watt-O-Meter”. This device could provide constant reading regarding the electricity consumption of a home. Wasted energy is costly and creates unnecessary air pollution contributing to climate change.
The company WindTronics based in Muskegon, Mich., has developed a new mini wind turbine that is specifically sized for individual urban homes, being able to operate at speeds as low as 2 miles an hour. This mini wind turbine will be sold for $4,500 as the Honeywell Wind Turbine and distributed through Ace Hardware stores [...]
Dublin company JOSPA is offering a new cheaper system, known as the Irish Tube Compressor (ITC), that could reduce cost of wave energy.
Modern satellites and spacecrafts are operated almost entirely by solar energy. This is possible because the sun’s rays have not been filtered through the earth’s atmosphere allowing the solar yield to be twice as strong.
