With water scarcity and accessibility, especially in far-flung areas, a global problem, various technologies have popped up to provide a solution for this problem. Apart from the WaterSeer, another water generator called SunToWater adds to the list of revolutionary devices that can produce clean water from thin air.
An Arizona startup by the name of Zero Mass Water is focused on building solar-powered water production systems that will gather water vapor from hot air. The said solar panel can generate water for a family of four.
Tesla and Panasonic are strengthening their partnership by engaging in another joint project, production of photovoltaic solar cells and modules for Tesla's Powerwall and Powerpack.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) predicts that a major dust storm will hit Mars in the next few weeks that might limit the solar energy used by Martian rovers Curiosity and Opportunity.
South African airport in the small town of George is being recognized worldwide as the first solar-powered 'Green' airport in the continent.
A new greenhouse in an Australian desert could produce 15,000 tons of tomatoes per year with only saltwater and sunlight.
A team of researchers from North Carolina State University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have successfully created an environmental friendly semi-printed plastic solar cell without toxic halogen solvents by using a nontoxic food additive.
A team of scientists has further revolutionized solar energy by creating solar modules that are cheaper and more efficient by using a tandem solar module made of semitransparent perovskite solar module and a CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium Selenide solar module.
A highway rest stop in Missouri will be covered with energy-producing solar panels, and it will be the first of many more solar road projects throughout the world.
Scientists from Forschungszentrum Juelich have successfully created the first complete and compact artificial photosynthesis facility that could be used in practical applications outside the lab.
MIT has developed a cheap and easy way to boil water, even when you're in the outdoors, without using a kettle and flame. The new method is surprisingly easy and only needs three key materials: bubble wrap, sponge and the power of sunlight.
A company aims to give affordable solar energy that will not only help the environment, but also to lighten the expenses that solar energy can incur by making equipment more affordable.
California is taking a major step in ending the world's problem on climate change. Last week, the California Assembly and Senate passed Senate Bill 32 and Assembly Bill 197, which would result to a 40 percent cut in the state's greenhouse gas emission once they take into effect.
Objects created through the 3D printing process may be extremely versatile. However, once the printing is done, the objects are limited to one form. The new advancement in 3D printing discovered by scientists hopes to change this. Through 4D printing, objects can change shape once subject to electricity, light, or heat.
