Ambitious plans to develop a £60m wave power project off the coast of Scotland’s Shetland Islands edged forward last week when wave energy developer Pelamis signed a new joint venture agreement with European energy giant Vattenfall.
Scientists at the University of Illinois are working to develop a new and different technology to capturing more light. Instead of using parabolic mirrors to focus sunlight onto flatbed solar panels, they have now come up with self-assembling spherical solar cells being able to capture more sunlight than flat ones. Researcher have created these new [...]
Scientists at the Duke University have developed a novel approach that they believe can help generate electricity from nature’s motion. Energy harvesting is the process of converting one form of energy, such as motion, into another form of energy, in this case electricity. Strategies range from the development of massive wind farms to produce large [...]
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.
Scientists at the National Science Foundation claim that have founded a way to produce biofuel from grass and other organic waste. It means that our vehicles could be powered by grass. “So we have a billions tons of year of this stuff and it just, it sits around and it rots and it goes up [...]
A “green” Jerusalem company called GreenSun has developed colorful solar panels that don’t need direct sunlight to work, capturing different parts of the sun’s light spectrum. The company claims that its highly-efficient solar panels will cost less than a dollar per watt to manufacture, in comparison with a conventional solar which cost more than $4 [...]
Michael Scherer, a designer from Brixen, has developed a solar charging station that can power bicycles, scooters, cars and even mobile phones. In conclusion it can provide power to everything with the necessary “fuel” from the sun. The prototype called E-Move Charging Station, is equipped with 8 mono-crystalline photovoltaic modules, which together supply 1.76 kWp [...]
The Po Ern Shi Temple from Singapore could be the world’s greenest temple. The ecologically friendly temple has achieved a carbon neutral status by producing all the electricity it needs from renewable sources.
The company New Energy Technologies has developed a prototype device which will make use of speed bumps to generate electric energy. It is now tested at a Burger King in Hillside, New Jersey.
In this year the last news in the batteries field is that Ceramatec has developed a new battery that can store up to 20KWh of green energy. But now Switzerland-based private equity fund Micro Finance Investment AG announcing a new record in this field. They claim that have developed a new lithium polymer cell capable [...]
