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 helping to reveal the secret to cheaper, super-efficient solar power by studying a family of crystalline materials called hybrid perovskites.
It's no secret that solar power is hot right now, with innovators and big name companies alike putting a great deal of time, money, and effort into improving these amazing sources of renewable energy. Still, the last thing you'd likely expect is for a new experimental array to literally light nearly 130 birds in mid-flight on fire.
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.
In what NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is calling a "unique crossover of art and culture and technology," researchers are proposing that the space agency's next generation of solar panels reflect some of the astoundingly efficient principles of origami.
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.
