Is The Energy-Storing Solar Cell Soon To Be Reality?

University of Erlangen-Nuremberg Storing solar energy is the central challenge facing energy researchers. Alongside traditional solutions such as solar cells or batteries, creative chemical concepts for storing energy are paving the way for entirely new opportunities. Intramolecular reactions are making it possible to transform solar energy and store it in a singular molecule. This may […]

New Research Could Turn Water Into the Fuel of Tomorrow

By: Dom Galeon WATER FOR FUEL Over the past decades, fossil fuels have become the backbone of the world’s industries. They have also been the number one cause of man-made climate change. Fortunately, things are beginning to change, as fossil fuels are on the decline thanks to the rise of renewable energy sources. An alternative energy source […]

ExtremeTech explains: How do solar cells work?

By Graham Templeton There are really only two possible endpoints for human energy production, and they’re both fusion. Either we find a way to create tiny, controlled fusion reactions here on Earth (fusion power) or we find a way to usefully collect a good portion of the energy already being released form the enormous fusion reactor our […]
