Innovative Projects to Harness Green Energy for a Cleaner Future

By: Carrie Ann As awareness about the harmful effects of the conventional sources of energy is spreading, researchers, as well as investors, are incorporating renewable energy resources as much as possible. Right from solar farms to massive wind turbine systems, organizations are collecting energy in humongous amounts of the wind, water, and the sun and […]

Storing Wind Power in a Giant Flow Battery

By: Tessel Renzenbrink A 100 m tall wind turbine is being erected at the German Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) test facility. Once construction is completed the testing of one of Germany’s largest batteries can begin. Under the header of RedoxWind project, ICT has been developing a large-scale redox-flow battery. The aim is to […]

Saudi Arabia will Invest Tens of Billions in Renewable Energy

By: Jason Lemon Saudi Arabia plans to become a “solar powerhouse” and invest tens of billions in renewable energy sources. Currently, less than 1 percent of Saudi Arabia’s energy is renewable. The kingdom’s economy relies primarily on oil production. Energy, Industry and Mineral Recourses Minister Khalid Al-Falih said that Riyadh will invest between $30 to $50 […]

Six Innovative Wind Turbine Designs

By Cat DiStasio The International Energy Association (IEA) announced last week that renewable energy capacity around the globe has eclipsed coal power for the first time ever. Wind power makes up a large percentage of global renewable energy, and with all the recent technological innovations in wind turbine design, it’s no mystery that it’s become […]

Novel Ocean-Current Turbine Design: Taming Oceans for 24/7 power

OIST team proposes a novel ocean-current turbine design. Fossil fuels propelled the Industrial Revolution and subsequent technological advances. However, our future cannot be based on them, if only because they are a finite resource; and we are very close to exhausting them. Solar and wind power is often seen as the main locomotive of the […]
