Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Next-generation solar cells pass strict international tests
    A cost-effective method to stabilise perovskite solar cells could soon see them become commercially viable.

  2. 3D-printed system speeds up solar cell testing from hours to minutes
    Tests on new designs for next-gen solar cells can now be done in minutes instead of days thanks to a new system.

  3. US wind plants show relatively low levels of performance decline as they age
    Wind plants in the United States remain relatively efficient over time, with only a 13% drop in performance over 17 years, researchers report. Their study also suggests that a production tax credit provides an effective incentive to maintain the plants during the 10-year window in which they are eligible to receive it. When this window closes, wind plant performance drops.

  4. The role of European policy for improving power plant fuel efficiency
    A new study investigates the impact of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS), the largest international cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emissions in the world, on power plant fuel efficiency.

  5. Saving energy and lives: How a solar chimney can boost fire safety
    Built as part of the sustainable features of a new Australian building, the specially-designed solar chimney radically boosts safe evacuation time in a fire - from 2 minutes to over 14 minutes.

  6. Solar and wind energy sites mapped globally for the first time
    Researchers have mapped the global locations of major renewable energy sites, providing a valuable resource to help assess their potential environmental impact.

  7. Are salt deposits a solution for nuclear waste disposal?
    Researchers testing and modeling to dispose of the current supply of waste.

  8. Researchers make key advance toward production of important biofuel
    An international research collaboration has taken an important step toward the commercially viable manufacture of biobutanol, an alcohol whose strong potential as a fuel for gasoline-powered engines could pave the path away from fossil fuels.

  9. Environment-friendly compound shows promise for solar cell use
    A team of engineers, material scientists, and physicists demonstrated how a new material -- a lead-free chalcogenide perovskite -- that hadn't previously been considered for use in solar cells could provide a safer and more effective option than others that are commonly considered.

  10. Advancing high temperature electrolysis: Splitting water to store energy as hydrogen
    Recently, researchers developed a new electrode material for an electrochemical cell that can efficiently convert excess electricity and water into hydrogen. When demand for electricity increases, the electrochemical cell is reversible, converting hydrogen back into electricity for the grid. The hydrogen could also be used as fuel for heat, vehicles or other applications.
