Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Efficient low-cost system for producing power at night
    Researchers have designed an off-grid, low-cost modular energy source that can efficiently produce power at night. The system uses commercially available technology and could eventually help meet the need for nighttime lighting in urban areas or provide lighting in developing countries.

  2. Countries transitioning to zero carbon should look at more than technology cost
    A 'one-size-fits-all' approach to producing cleaner energy based on cost alone could create social inequalities, finds a new study.

  3. Analysis of renewable energy points toward more affordable carbon-free electricity
    A study identifies long-term storage technologies that would enhance the affordability and reliability of renewable electricity.

  4. Turning carbon dioxide into liquid fuel
    Chemists report a new electrocatalyst that converts carbon dioxide and water into ethanol with very high energy efficiency, high selectivity for the desired final product and low cost.

  5. Incorporating solar harvesting into the side of buildings could enhance energy sustainability
    If builders could incorporate solar harvesting into the siding of a building, the amount of energy from the grid that a structure would need may significantly decrease. Researchers have demonstrated the potential of wedge-shaped luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs). These efficient modular solar units could easily be hung on the side of a building.

  6. Disposed PPE could be turned into biofuel, shows new COVID-19 study
    Plastic from used personal protective equipment (PPE) can, and should, be transformed into renewable liquid fuels, according to a new study.

  7. For solar boom, scrap silicon for this promising mineral
    Engineers have found that photovoltaic wafers in solar panels with all-perovskite structures outperform photovoltaic cells made from state-of-the-art crystalline silicon, as well as perovskite-silicon tandem cells, which are stacked pancake-style cells that absorb light better.

  8. Harnessing wind data to help meet energy needs in Florida
    A new study shows how upcoming technological advances could make wind energy a hot commodity in the Sunshine State.

  9. Offshore wind power now so cheap it could pay money back to consumers
    The latest round of offshore wind farms to be built in the UK could reduce household energy bills by producing electricity very cheaply.

  10. New technology makes homes more energy independent, helps divert power during power outages
    Researchers have designed a smart technology that can help utility companies better serve communities affected by power outages. The researchers said their single device works by improving energy delivery between home solar-power systems and the electrical grid.
