Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Carbon-neutral fuel made from sunlight and air
    Researchers have developed a novel technology that produces liquid hydrocarbon fuels exclusively from sunlight and air. For the first time worldwide they demonstrate the entire thermochemical process chain under real field conditions.

  2. Breathing new life into dye-sensitized solar cells
    Researchers are poised to reboot the field of aromatic-fused porphyrin sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells, the most efficient solar efficient solar technology available at present.

  3. Clarifying the economic value of adjusting the power consumption
    The economic value of demand response that adjusts the power consumption has not been clarified. A control method for maximizing cost-effectiveness of demand response is developed. Using this method, the optimal power consumption can be calculated based on the prediction of the power generation cost and the demand.

  4. Societal values and perceptions shape energy production and use as much as new technology
    Societal values and perceptions have shaped the energy landscape as much as the technologies that drive its production and consumption, a new article suggests.

  5. New York state winters could pose solar farm 'ramping' snag for power grid
    With low energy demand around midday in the winter, combined with solar-electricity production, New York's power system could face volatile swings of 'ramping' -- which is how power system operators describe quick increases or decreases in demand.

  6. Helping cities make power grids safer, more reliable
    Solar power researchers have traditionally used the power measurements from single residential solar photovoltaic systems to estimate the power generated within a city. But one installation isn't a good representation of all rooftops. Data from systems across a city is desperately needed to fully understand how this energy source can be integrated into the power grid. Engineers have provided a freely available quality-controlled and tuned dataset from 1,287 residential installations across Aust...

  7. Major step forward in the production of 'green' hydrogen
    The first thermodynamically reversible chemical reactor capable of producing hydrogen as a pure product stream represents a 'transformational' step forward in the chemical industry.

  8. Gas vs. electric? Fuel choice affects efforts to achieve low-energy and low-impact homes
    If you want to make your home as energy-efficient and green as possible, should you use gas or electric for your heating and cooling needs?

  9. Engineered bacteria could be missing link in energy storage
    One of the big issues with sustainable energy systems is how to store electricity that's generated from wind, solar and waves. At present, no existing technology provides large-scale storage and energy retrieval for sustainable energy at a low financial and environmental cost. Engineered electroactive microbes could be part of the solution.

  10. 100% renewables doesn't equal zero-carbon energy, and the difference is growing
    While 160 companies around the world have committed to use '100% renewable energy,' that does not mean '100% carbon-free energy.' The difference will grow as power grids become less reliant on fossil power, according to a new study. Entities committed to fighting climate change can and should measure the environmental benefits of their renewable strategies accurately, the authors write.
