India Headed For A Green Energy Revolution: Harvard Scientist

KOLKATA: Harvard chemist and energy innovator Daniel G. Nocera is a man on a “renewable” mission. The inventor of the artificial leaf and co-creator of its bionic version plans to launch a pilot of the advanced technology in India with the assertion that a “renewable energy revolution will take place” in the country. “I have […]

Solar-powered hydrogen generation using two of the most abundant elements on Earth

By Colin Jeffrey One potential clean energy future requires an economical, efficient, and relatively simple way to generate copious amounts of hydrogen for use in fuel-cells and hydrogen-powered vehicles. Often achieved by using electricity to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen, the ideal method would be to mine hydrogen from water using electricity generated […]

New solar device converts Sun’s energy to hydrogen more efficiently than ever

An international team of scientists has invented a cheap solar device that can store energy from the Sun more efficiently than anything on the market. One of the biggest problems with solar power becoming a more viable and cost effective alternative to fossil fuels is what to do when the sun isn’t shining. An international […]

Rechargeable flow batteries could be cheaper solution to renewable energy storage

Researchers at MIT have developed a battery that could bring us reliable and cheap large scale energy storage. Based on flow battery technology, the researchers took out the costly membrane and created a battery that has a power density that is an order of magnitude higher than lithium-ion batteries and three times greater than other […]

Hydrogen plant starts storing wind energy in Germany

A plant that converts surplus power from wind turbines into energy-dense hydrogen gas started operating in Germany for the first time this week, the companies involved said. The power-to-gas system, built by Canada-based Hydrogenics, is part of a major effort to make renewable resources into more reliable sources of energy, said E.ON, a German utility […]
