Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Breakthrough machine learning approach quickly produces higher-resolution climate data
    Researchers have developed a novel machine learning approach to quickly enhance the resolution of wind velocity data by 50 times and solar irradiance data by 25 times -- an enhancement that has never been achieved before with climate data.

  2. Newer solar power equipment ages better than older units
    Utility-scale photovoltaics are the largest sector of the overall solar market within the US and the fastest-growing form of renewable power generation, and this fleet of utility-scale photovoltaic projects is relatively young and hasn't been operating long enough to establish a lengthy history of operational field service. Researchers assess the performance of 411 utility-scale photovoltaic projects built within the U.S. from 2007 through 2016.
    Crystal structure discovered almost 200 years ago could hold key to solar cell revolution
    Solar energy researchers are shining their scientific spotlight on materials with a crystal structure discovered nearly two centuries ago.

  3. New solar forecasting model performs best
    A new mathematical model for predicting variations in solar irradiance has been developed. It may help to promote more efficient use of electricity from solar energy. In tests of various data models, the model proved capable of making highly reliable forecasts, and emerged as the best for this purpose in some respects.

  4. Self-powered alarm fights forest fires, monitors environment
    Scientists designed and fabricated a remote forest fire detection and alarm system powered by nothing but the movement of the trees in the wind.

  5. How a historic drought led to higher power costs and emissions
    Researchers studied the impact of a historic drought in California on economic and environmental impacts for electric power systems.

  6. Simulating wind farm development
    Engineers have devised a model to describe how, in the process of establishing wind farms, interactions between developers and landowners affect energy production costs.

  7. New system uses wind turbines to defend the US national grid from power cuts
    A 'smart' system that controls the storage and release of energy from wind turbines will reduce the risk of power cuts and support the increase of wind energy use world-wide, say researchers.

  8. The exhaust gas from a power plant can be recovered and used as a raw reaction material
    A research group developed a new technology that can drastically conserve the energy used to capture CO2 from gases exhausted from a concentrated source such as thermal power plants. With this technology, namely H2 stripping regeneration technology, combustion exhaust gas can be replaced by CO2/H2 gas at lower temperatures than those used in conventional technology.

  9. Integrating nanomaterial with light-absorbing molecule powers hydrogen production from water and sun
    Scientists have developed a hybrid material constructed from a metal oxide nanosheet and a light-absorbing molecule for splitting water molecules (H2O) to obtain dihydrogen (H2) under sunlight. Since H2 can be used as carbon-free fuel, this study provides relevant insight towards clean energy generation.
