With a new design called the bionic leaf, scientists have successfully found a way to turn sunlight into liquid fuel, potentially changing the game of renewable energy, new research shows.
For the first time, scientists have combined a rechargeable battery with a solar cell to create the world's first solar battery, new research describes.
Japan may soon be getting a little wider if its solar power industry has anything to say about it. With the island country short on landmass, renewable energy companies are making plans to extend Japan's coasts with massive and interlocking barges of solar panels.
A new type of solar cell developed by researchers at Michigan State University (MSU) is changing the game of solar energy.
The world's largest solar-powered boat will be helping experts in an ambitious underwater survey of one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. The crew of the MS Turanor PlanetSolar hope to showcase the power of green technologies, even while mapping the submerged region in a search for thousand-year-old evidence of farmland and earth-work.
Researchers have developed a simple one-step system to help boost the efficiency of pre-existing solar cell technology at minimal cost.
Researchers have just unveiled the latest advancement in solar technology, identifying a new and inexpensive solid-state type of light-sensitive nanoparticle.
Scott and Julie Brusaw of Sagle, Idaho have made their long-realized idea come to life. They now have a working prototype of their provocative concept "Solar Roadways," a system of modular solar panels that could be paved directly onto roads, parking lots, driveways, and bike paths, and "literally any place under the sun," The Atlantic Cities reported.
Scientists may have hit the jackpot on creating a constant source of solar energy, solving a great energy riddle. To date, solar energy has not been seen as a totally viable energy source because the Sun is not always shining. In spite of this, researchers may have found a way to store solar energy, one of the major challenges in creating renewable solar fuels.
