Wind isn't acting alone in the geological process behind erosion, sand dunes and airborne dust particles called aerosols. The other culprit is electricity. By taking both factors into account, researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a new model that matches real-world measurements of "saltation" better than the decades-old classical theory.
The Technology Strategy Board is to stimulate improvements in low carbon energy technologies through a £10 million investment in collaborative research and development.
Eurus Energy group has specialized in the development of the wind power generation business since it was established in 2002, and at this time, it has entered the photovoltaic power generation field, which is a clean and inexhaustible energy source, in the same way as wind power generation.
Solar Innovations, a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial greenhouses, conservatories, sunrooms, folding and sliding glass doors, walls, windows, and screens, announces the addition of horticultural services and environmental planning to its list of available services.
In a survey of the northern Basin and Range province of the western United States, geochemists Mack Kennedy of the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Matthijs van Soest of Arizona State University have discovered a new tool for identifying potential geothermal energy resources.
Sandia National Laboratories researchers Mark Ivey and Bernie Zak are members of a research team from around the world whose work on the cold tundra in northern Alaska is helping to transform scientists' understanding of what the future may hold for Earth's climate.
A new wind turbine blade design that researchers at Sandia National Laboratories developed in partnership with Knight and Carver of San Diego promises to be more efficient than current designs. It should significantly reduce the cost-of-energy (COE) of wind turbines at low-wind-speed sites.
When someone mentions a mobile home or "house trailer," the image usually doesn't make others green with envy. Mobile homes haven't earned recognition for long-term quality, environmental friendliness or return on value.
A Duke University-led analysis of available records shows that while the North Atlantic Ocean’s surface waters warmed in the 50 years between 1950 and 2000, the change was not uniform. In fact, the subpolar regions cooled at the same time that subtropical and tropical waters warmed.
Biofuels reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in comparison to fossil fuels. In the Jan. 4 issue of the journal Science, Smithsonian researchers highlight a new study that factors in environmental costs of biofuel production.
