Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Carbon dioxide reactor makes 'Martian fuel'
    Engineers are developing new ways to convert greenhouse gases to fuel to address climate change and get astronauts home from Mars.

  2. Wind energy can deliver vital slash to global warming
    Implementing advance wind energy scenarios could achieve a reduction in global warming atmospheric average temperatures of 0.3 to 0.8 degrees Celsius by the end of the century, according to new research.

  3. Engineers discover way to turn organic waste into renewable biofuel additives using radiation
    The renewable proportion of petrol is set to increase to 20 per cent over the coming years, meaning the discovery of a new production pathway for these additives could help in the fight to cut carbon dioxide emissions and tackle climate change. Engineers propose a process to generate one such additive, solketal, using waste from both biochemical and nuclear industries -- termed a nuclear biorefinery.
    Solar cells with 30-year lifetimes for power-generating windows
    A new transparency-friendly solar cell design could marry high efficiencies with 30-year estimated lifetimes, new research has shown. It may pave the way for windows that also provide solar power.

  4. Time to shine: Scientists reveal at an atomic scale how chlorine stabilizes next-gen solar cells
    Researchers have imaged the atoms at the surface of the light-absorbing layer in a new type of next-generation solar cells, made from a crystal material called metal-halide perovskite. Their findings have solved a long-standing mystery in the field of solar power technology, showing how power-boosting and stability-enhancing chlorine is incorporated into the perovskite material.

  5. Cheaper hydrogen production
    Electrolytic hydrogen production powered by renewable energy is seen as an environmentally friendly means to ameliorate global climate and energy problems. A research team has now introduced a novel and inexpensive material for electrodes that may provide for highly efficient, energy-saving hydrogen production: porous, phosphorized CoNi2S4 yolk-shell nanospheres.

  6. Transforming ?sewer gas? into clean hydrogen fuel
    Scientists have found a new chemical process to turn a stinky, toxic gas into a clean-burning fuel.

  7. Combining sunlight and wastewater nitrate to make the world?s No. 2 chemical
    Engineers have created a solar-powered electrochemical reaction that not only uses wastewater to make ammonia -- the second most-produced chemical in the world -- but also achieves a solar-to-fuel efficiency that is 10 times better than any other comparable technology.

  8. Making methane from CO2: Carbon capture grows more affordable
    Researchers can make methane from captured CO2 and renewably sourced hydrogen, offering a path toward cheaper synthetic natural gas.

  9. Using liquid metal to turn motion into electricity, even underwater
    Researchers have created a soft, stretchable device that converts movement into electricity and works in both dry and wet environments.
