Solving two problems in one: dirty air and energy sources.
Iceland makes strides in the pursuit of volcano-powered electricity.
Alternative energy sources are very much in demand as a means to power next-generation electronic devices. Penn State materials scientists and electrical engineers, through the funding of electronics company Samsung, have developed a mechanical energy transducer that could harvest unused mechanical energy in the environment, including wind, ocean waves and human motion.
This could potentially provide a power source for thousands of years, because of the longstanding half-life of the radioactive substances.
Wood pellets have become an increasingly popular alternative source of fuel, and are even more environmentally friendly compared to coal, when factoring harvesting and transportation.
Researchers have developed a genetically enhanced virus that could boost the light-harvesting capabilities of solar cells.
In an update on the past couple of years in energy extraction, studies, and fracking in North America, we look at what Nature World News has said and studies have covered.
Two Iceland brothers have developed a powerful, lightweight wind turbine that's versatile and powerful enough to charge cell phones, power a TV and small appliances and even charge electric cars.
China's greenhouse gas emissions may peak by the year 2025, according to a new report from the London School of Economics (LSE), easing scientists' fears of its contribution to climate change.
Scientists are still working to figure out how various noise pollution affects marine animals, and now new research suggests that the building of wind turbines may be putting the hearing of UK harbor seals at risk.
