The national economy is reenergizing, quite literally. In 2021, Americans used 5% more energy than in 2020, according to the most recent energy flow charts released by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).
Mitsubishi Power Aero LLC, a leading global provider of fast-track, on-demand power solutions, has signed an agreement with Life Cycle Power (Houston, Texas) to supply five FT8® MOBILEPAC® gas turbine units, adding 155 megawatts of capability to LCP’s fleet.
NGK INSULATORS, LTD. has invested in EneCoat Technologies Co., Ltd., which is involved in development of perovskite solar cells.
Zinc-air batteries, which produce electricity through a chemical reaction between oxygen in the atmosphere and zinc, are considered to be next-generation candidates to meet the explosive demand for electric vehicles instead of lithium-ion batteries.
A team co-led team by the University of Surrey has successfully increased the levels of energy absorbed by wafer-thin photovoltaic panels by 25%.
The ice cover surrounding Antarctica in the Southern Hemisphere slowly expands between March and October every year.
Texas can serve as a model for the country on how to efficiently substitute coal with solar and wind for the energy requirements of the state while adhering to environmental targets, according to a new study by engineers from Rice University.
A 'cyber-leaf' designed and assembled using robots could help the world transition more quickly from climate change-inducing fossil fuels to green renewables, according to a new Cambridge study.
According to a new study, wildfire smoke depletes the ozone layer. Researchers warn that as the frequency of major fires increases as a result of climate change, more harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun will reach the ground.
Solar-powered adsorption cooling systems (SACS) have garnered attention as a renewable energy technology which could offer clean electricity for air conditioning and refrigeration while gradually lowering electric grid demand. However, these systems are inefficient in terms of energy use.
