Hydrogen vehicles might soon become the global norm

Roughly one billion cars and trucks zoom about the world's roadways. Only a few run on hydrogen. This could change after a breakthrough achieved by...

This device could convert sunlight, CO2 and water into clean fuel

Researchers have developed a standalone device that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into a carbon-neutral fuel, without requiring any additional components or electricity. The...

New biomorphic batteries could provide 72 times more energy for robots

A new rechargeable zinc battery can provide much more energy and integrate into the structure of a robot. Like biological fat reserves store energy in...

This Cold Tube could beat the summer heat without relying on air conditioning

Many people beat the summer heat by cranking the air conditioning. However, air conditioners guzzle power and spew out millions of tons of carbon dioxide...

Transparent solar panels for windows hit record 8% efficiency

In a step closer to skyscrapers that serve as power sources, a team led by University of Michigan researchers has set a new efficiency...

Red bricks could store energy just like batteries, says study

Imagine plugging in to your brick house. Red bricks — some of the world’s cheapest and most familiar building materials — can be converted into...

New low-cost way to produce power at night

Researchers have designed an off-grid, low-cost modular energy source that can efficiently produce power at night. The system uses commercially available technology and could eventually...

Scientists develop first electrically injected laser

Scientists have demonstrated the first electrically injected laser made with germanium tin. Used as a semiconducting material for circuits on electronic devices, the diode laser...

Scientists find novel way to improve performance of supercapacitors

Demand for integrated energy storage devices is growing rapidly as people rely more and more on portable and wireless electronics, and the global need...
