Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. An anode-free zinc battery that could someday store renewable energy
    Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, could help decrease the world's reliance on fossil fuels. But first, power companies need a safe, cost-effective way to store the energy for later use. Massive lithium-ion batteries can do the job, but they suffer from safety issues and limited lithium availability. Now, researchers have made a prototype of an anode-free, zinc-based battery that uses low-cost, naturally abundant materials.
    Advanced light reveals how different biofuels behave
    Vehicles have evolved to become more efficient and sophisticated, but their fuel hasn't necessarily evolved along with them. Researchers are determined to identify cleaner burning and renewable alternatives to gasoline, and are getting closer to that goal.

  2. Impacts of climate change on our water and energy systems: it's complicated
    Researchers have developed a science-based analytic framework to evaluate the complex connections between water and energy, and options for adaptations in response to an evolving climate.

  3. Positive 'tipping points' offer hope for climate
    Positive 'tipping points' could spark cascading changes that accelerate action on climate change, experts say.

  4. On the road to invisible solar panels: How tomorrow's windows will generate electricity
    Researchers demonstrate the first transparent solar cell. Their innovative technique rests on a specific part of the solar cell: the heterojunction, made up of thin films of materials responsible for absorbing light. By combining the unique properties of titanium dioxide and nickel oxide semiconductors, the researchers were able to generate an efficient, transparent solar cell.
    Using solar energy and agriculture to limit climate change, assist rural communities
    Co-developing land for both solar photovoltaic power and agriculture could provide 20% of total electricity generation in the United States with an investment of less than 1% of the annual US budget, new researchers found.

  5. Extracting energy from manure to meet peak heating demands
    Cornell University is developing a system to extract energy from cattle manure to meet the campus's peak demands for heat in the winter months. Scientists involved with the project give a detailed analysis of the issues required to make this work, including scientific, economic, and energy policy considerations.

  6. It's electrifying! This is how Earth could be entirely powered by sustainable energy
    Can you imagine a world powered by 100% renewable electricity and fuels? It may seem fantasy, but a collaborative team of scientists has just shown this dream is theoretically possible - if we can garner global buy-in. The study explores what changes are needed in our energy mix and consumption patterns if we are to achieve 100% renewability in a way that supports everyone and the myriad of life on our planet.
    Goldilocks and the three quantum dots: Just right for peak solar panel performance
    Maximizing the efficiency of renewable energy technology is dependent on creating nanoparticles with ideal dimensions and density, new simulations have shown.

  7. NYS can achieve 2050 carbon goals with Earth?s help
    By delving into scientific, technological, environmental and economic data, engineering researchers examined whether New York could achieve a statewide carbon-free economy by 2050. Their finding: Yes, New York can reach this goal - and do it with five years to spare.
