Researchers at MIT developed small sensors that could tell which household device uses up too much energy.
Researchers have documented how leafcutter ants process leaves into nutrients underground. The remarkable nimble ants rely on a division of labor to get food on the table and conserve energy, thus ensuring they remain healthy and strong – the better to suit the colony.
Greenhouse farmers depend on supplemental lighting to grow plump tomatoes. When testing the effects of artificial light, researchers found LED lights not only grow perfectly good tomatoes, but are also energy-efficient.
Scientists developed an artificial leaf that can harness sunlight and produce efficient fuel. Their model is even cost-effective and rust-resistant.
