Swiss voted in favor of the referendum that propose the decommissioning all five of its nuclear power plants.
Capable of producing 2.6 TWh of sustainable energy every year, Gemini could help in reducing the CO2 emissions of the Netherlands by 1.25 million tons.
Solving two problems in one: dirty air and energy sources.
Binghamton University researchers, with the help of their colleagues from State University of New York have developed the first ever micro-scale self-sustaining microbial fuel cells powered by the symbiotic interactions of two types of bacteria.
A gigantic artificial sun will help scientists develop new ways of producing hydrogen fuel.
In addition to making plants into capacitors, the scientists also made fuel cells that work inside plants to turn their sugars into energy.
Four billion tons of uranium in seawater would fuel a thousand 1,000-MW nuclear power plants for 100,000 years.
The bill was initiated by Deputy Thomas Pringle, who sees this as a matter of "ethical financing."
Leaf-inspired prototype reactor could capture the energy from sunlight and use it to produce drugs sustainably and cheaply anywhere.
Engineers from the University of California, Irvine have successfully implemented a new technique capable of converting and using the excess energy from solar panels or wind farms.
Using its original breakthrough tyre recycling technology, Australian startup company Green Distillation Technologies (GDT) ingeniously recycles end-of-life tyres into an oil that when mixed into minute amount of diesel produces high-quality biofuel that cuts emissions without compromising engine performance. GDT also turns old tyres into carbon and steel, leaving nothing wasted. It even uses some of the recovered oil as the heat source.
Engineering researchers from the Michigan State University have developed a pioneering nanotechnology that may soon power up smartphones and wearable devices using simple human motions, such as walking and swiping.
Scientists have found that cryogenic science may be the hope to further improve renewable energy. Cryogenics is a study of reducing the temperatures of biological parts and bodies and reviving them again when needed. An unusual source of energy, it may be a new addition to the short list of renewable sources of energy the world could use in the future.
The radiation fingerprint from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan has finally reached the US shores, specifically in the West Coast. Is it bad news for Americans?
