Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Cost-effective fuel cell technology
    Researchers have identified ammonia as a source for engineering fuel cells that can provide a cheap and powerful source for fueling cars, trucks and buses with a reduced carbon footprint.

  2. Materials that can revolutionize how light is harnessed for solar energy
    Scientists have designed organic molecules capable of generating two excitons per photon of light, a process called singlet fission. The excitons can live for much longer than those generated from their inorganic counterparts, which leads to an amplification of electricity generated per photon that is absorbed by a solar cell.

  3. Europe has the untapped onshore capacity to meet global energy demand
    Europe has the capacity to produce more than 100 times the amount of energy it currently produces through onshore windfarms, new analysis has revealed.

  4. Key factors in how some algae harness solar energy
    Scientists have discovered how diatoms -- a type of alga that produce 20 percent of the Earth's oxygen -- harness solar energy for photosynthesis. The discovery could help lead to more efficient and affordable algae-based biofuels and combat climate change from fossil fuel burning.

  5. Growth of wind energy points to future challenges, promise
    Advances in adapting the technology and better methods for predicting wind conditions have fanned significant growth of the use of wind turbines for electricity in the last 40 years. A new report takes stock of where the field is now and what lies ahead. Researchers surveyed the growth of wind technology as a source of renewable energy and assessed its viability for continuing to capture larger shares of the electricity market.
    Mapping the energetic landscape of solar cells
    A new spectroscopic method now makes it possible to measure and visualize the energetic landscape inside solar cells based on organic materials. It was developed by a physicist. This novel visualization technique enables scientists to study the physical principles of organic photovoltaics with extreme precision and to better understand processes such as energetic losses....</div

  6. Installing solar panels on agricultural lands maximizes their efficiency
    A new study finds that if less than 1% of agricultural land was converted to solar panels, it would be sufficient to fulfill global electric energy demand.

  7. Machine learning helps predict if storms will cause power outages
    Summer thunderstorms that knock out power grids are common around the world. Computer scientists and meteorologists applied machine learning to predict how damaging each particular storm will be.

  8. Ultra-thin layers of rust generate electricity from flowing water
    Researchers have shown that iron oxide layers can convert kinetic energy of saltwater into electrical power.

  9. Sun's solar wind and plasma 'burps' created on Earth
    A new study by physicists mimicked solar winds in the lab, confirming how they develop and providing an Earth-bound model for the future study of solar physics.
