Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Uncertain climate future could disrupt energy systems
    Scientists have published a new study proposing an optimization methodology for designing climate-resilient energy systems and to help ensure that communities will be able to meet future energy needs given weather and climate variability.

  2. Highly efficient and stable double layer solar cell developed
    A research team has developed a new type of solar cell that can both withstand environmental hazards and is 26.7% efficient in power conversion.

  3. Longer lives not dependent on increased energy use
    Growing consumption of energy and fossil fuels over four decades did not play a significant role in increasing life expectancy across 70 countries. New research has quantified the importance of different development factors to improvements in physical health on an international scale.

  4. Photosynthetic proteins developed for expanded solar energy conversion
    A team of scientists has developed a new photosynthetic protein system enabling an enhanced and more sustainable approach to solar-powered technological devices. The initiative is part of a broader effort in the field of synthetic biology to use proteins in place of man-made materials which are often scarce, expensive and can be harmful to the environment when the device becomes obsolete.

  5. Concrete solutions that lower both emissions and air pollution
    Some common strategies to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of concrete production could have unintended consequences for local air pollution and related health damages, according to a new study.

  6. Electric cars better for climate in 95% of the world
    Fears that electric cars could actually increase carbon emissions are unfounded in almost all parts of the world, new research shows.

  7. Shedding light on optimal materials for harvesting sunlight underwater
    There may be many overlooked organic and inorganic materials that could be used to harness sunlight underwater and efficiently power autonomous submersible vehicles, report researchers. New research develops guidelines for optimal band gap values at a range of watery depths, demonstrating that various wide-band gap semiconductors, rather than the narrow-band semiconductors used in traditional silicon solar cells, are best equipped for underwater use.
    Boosting stability of perovskites helps silicon solar cells
    A change in chemical composition enabled scientists to boost the longevity and efficiency of a perovskite solar cell.

  8. Ultrathin organic solar cell is both efficient and durable
    Scientists have succeeded in creating an ultrathin organic solar cell that is both highly efficient and durable. Using a simple post-annealing process, they created a flexible organic cell that degrades by less than 5% over 3,000 hours in atmospheric conditions and that simultaneously has an energy conversion ratio -- a key indicator of solar cell performance -- of 13%....</div></div></li><br><li ><a  class=
    Water splitting advance holds promise for affordable renewable energy
    A team has developed a less expensive water electrolysis system that works under alkaline conditions but still produces hydrogen at comparable rates to the currently used system that works under acidic conditions and requires precious metals. This advance brings down the cost of water splitting technology, offering a more viable way to store energy from solar and wind power in the form of hydrogen fuel.
