Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. How will the winds of climate change affect migratory birds?
    Under future climate scenarios, changing winds may make it harder for North American birds to migrate southward in the autumn, but make it easier for them to come back north in the spring. Researchers came to this conclusion using data from 143 weather radar stations to estimate the altitude, density, and direction birds took during spring and autumn migrations over several years.

  2. Fighting smog supports solar power
    Model calculations by researchers show that if China fought smog more aggressively, it could massively increase solar power production.

  3. 'Sun in a box' would store renewable energy for the grid
    Engineers have come up with a conceptual design for a system to store renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, and deliver that energy back into an electric grid on demand. The system may be designed to power a small city not just when the sun is up or the wind is high, but around the clock.

  4. Fine-tuning renewables could help Texas balance energy resources
    A new study analyzes Texas' mix of wind and solar energy resources, and how to achieve better balance between them going forward.

  5. Wind power vulnerable to climate change in India
    The warming of the Indian Ocean, caused by global climate change, may be causing a slow decline in wind power potential in India, according to a new study.

  6. Global carbon dioxide emissions rise even as coal wanes and renewables boom
    Renewable energy capacity has hit record levels and global coal use may have already peaked. But the world's carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels increased in 2018, and the trend places global warming targets in jeopardy.

  7. Brilliant iron molecule could provide cheaper solar energy
    For the first time, researchers have succeeded in creating an iron molecule that can function both as a photocatalyst to produce fuel and in solar cells to produce electricity. The results indicate that the iron molecule could replace the more expensive and rarer metals used today.

  8. New catalyst produces cheap hydrogen fuel
    Chemistry researchers have discovered cheaper and more efficient materials for producing hydrogen for the storage of renewable energy that could replace current water-splitting catalysts.

  9. Coordinated development could help wind farms be better neighbors
    New research highlights a previously underexplored consequence: A wake effect from upwind wind farms that can reduce the energy production of their downwind neighbors.

  10. Explaining the plummeting cost of solar power
    The dramatic drop in the cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, which has fallen by 99 percent over the last four decades, is often touted as a major success story for renewable energy technology. But one question has never been fully addressed: What exactly accounts for that stunning drop? A new analysis has pinpointed what caused the savings, including the policies and technology changes that mattered most.
