Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Wind farms and reducing hurricane precipitation
    New research reveals an unexpected benefit of large-scale offshore wind farms: the ability to lessen precipitation from hurricanes.

  2. Renewable energy is common ground for Democrats and Republicans
    While conservatives and liberals tend to disagree on many environmental issues, they both view the development of solar power and other forms of renewable energy as financially savvy and a step towards self-sufficiency.

  3. New technique for turning sunshine and water into hydrogen fuel
    Researchers have developed new photocatalyst synthesis method using Magnesium hydride (MgH2) and Titanium dioxide (TiO2). The result is expected to contribute to hydrogen mass production through the development of photocatalyst that reacts to solar light.

  4. Windier wind farms
    Depending on how wind turbines are situated relative to each other and to the prevailing wind, those not directly in the path of the wind could be left to extract energy from significantly depleted airflow. However, according to researchers, there are ways to get around this issue of diminishing wind returns.

  5. Large-scale US wind power would cause warming that would take roughly a century to offset
    Extracting energy from the wind causes climatic impacts that are small compared to current projections of 21st century warming, but large compared to the effect of reducing US electricity emissions to zero with solar. Researchers report the most accurate modelling yet of how increasing wind power would affect climate, finding that large-scale wind power generation would warm the Continental United States 0.24 degrees Celsius because wind turbines redistribute heat in the atmosphere.
    Emissions-free energy system saves heat from the summer sun for winter
    Researchers have made strides towards the development of a specially designed molecule which can store solar energy for later use.

  6. Artificial leaf: Highly active organic photocatalyst discovered
    Scientists have synthesized a new organic material that can convert water into hydrogen fuel using sunlight.

  7. Eco-friendly nanoparticles for artificial photosynthesis
    Researchers have developed a nanoparticle type for novel use in artificial photosynthesis by adding zinc sulfide on the surface of indium-based quantum dots. These quantum dots produce clean hydrogen fuel from water and sunlight -- a sustainable source of energy. They introduce new eco-friendly and powerful materials to solar photocatalysis.

  8. Fewer biofuels, more green space: Climate action researcher calls for urgent shift
    Growing and harvesting bioenergy crops -- corn for ethanol or trees to fuel power plants, for example -- is a poor use of land, which is a precious resource in the fight against climate change, says a researcher.

  9. Device that integrates solar cell and battery could store electricity outside the grid
    Scientists have harnessed the abilities of both a solar cell and a battery in one device -- a 'solar flow battery' that soaks up sunlight and efficiently stores it as chemical energy for later on-demand use. Their research could make electricity more accessible in remote regions of the world.
