Researchers have developed a genetically enhanced virus that could boost the light-harvesting capabilities of solar cells.
The recovery and conversion of urban waste could become a valuable source of electricity that benefits millions of Africans, say energy and sustainability experts.
Portabella mushrooms can be used to create cheaper, environmentally friendly batteries that could answer future demand for power storage.
Forests are often depended upon to capture and store carbon emissions. However, a new study shows that current models drastically overestimate their ability to capture carbon.
University of Michigan researchers created new and lightweight, tilting solar cells that can track the sun and absorb more energy--as an improvement upon the conventional, very weighty panels that are too heavy for most people's roofs. They were inspired by the ancient Japanese art of paper cutting.
Harvard researchers examined how downstream effects of flooding for hydroelectric development would affect local communities in this area. They found that increased toxins could devastate food supplies.
Rice University researchers recently developed solar water-splitting technology that produces a clean, renewable energy source, through processes of splitting water.
Researchers recently found that building more wind turbines might actually be less efficient and not produce as much renewable energy.
Scientists developed an artificial leaf that can harness sunlight and produce efficient fuel. Their model is even cost-effective and rust-resistant.
Golden eagles and wind turbines can now live in harmony since researchers found less threatening, and potentially more abundant, locations for this renewable energy to be collected.
Well, that's wishful thinking. But one new study has outlined how the entire United States, all 50 states, can successfully transition to renewable energy by the year 2050.
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 from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) have found a new way to use solar cells that makes them more efficient, according to a breakthrough study.
Here's something that you probably didn't see coming. The amount of greenhouse gases emitted during the production of a hard Blu-ray disk is actually less than the carbon released during the download of a single videogame.
