Center for Energy: News of the Day
  1. Combined heat and power as a platform for clean energy systems
    The state of Georgia could dramatically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, while creating new jobs and a healthier public, if more of its energy-intensive industries and commercial buildings were to utilize combined heat and power (CHP), according to the latest research.

  2. Air quality models can improve the accuracy of forecasts of daily solar power production in the future
    The expansion of renewable energies is placing increasing demands on the power grids. Precise forecasts of the amount of solar power that will be fed into the grid is key to effective energy management. In addition to clouds, aerosol particles also strongly influence the amount of electricity generated by photovoltaic systems. Current air quality models are a good basis for estimating the production of solar electricity, but they could be further improved.

  3. Perovskite solar cells soar to new heights
    Researchers have developed a novel method to fabricate lead halide perovskite solar cells with record efficiency.

  4. Scientists develop lead-absorbing tape to boost viability of rising star in solar power industry
    Scientists describe development of a cost-effective Scotch-tape-like film that can be applied to perovskite solar cells and capture 99.9% of leaked lead in the event of solar cell damage.

  5. Research pushes auto industry closer to clean cars powered by direct ethanol fuel cells
    Alternative-energy research is charting a path toward the mass adoption of clean cars powered by direct-ethanol fuel cells.

  6. Efficient organic solar cells processed from green solvents
    A small guest molecule in the right place makes it possible to produce energy-efficient organic solar cells using eco-friendly solvents. A record efficiency over 17% is demonstrated. In addition, solar cells with larger areas can be produced.

  7. Accelerated renewables-based electrification paves the way for a post-fossil future
    Cost-slashing innovations are underway in the electric power sector and could give electricity the lead over fossil-based combustion fuels in the world's energy supply by mid-century. When combined with a global carbon price, these developments can catalyse emission reductions to reach the Paris climate targets, while reducing the need for controversial negative emissions, a new study finds.

  8. New study shows electric fields can improve the efficiency of wastewater purification
    A new technological advancement uses an electric field to achieve efficient and low-cost ammonia removal from wastewater.

  9. Speeding up the energy transition reduces climate risks
    The World Climate Conference in Glasgow has just ended, and the question is whether the goal of maximum global heating of 1.5C can still be achieved. In a model calculation, researchers show how the energy transition could lead to the lowest possible cumulative emissions: Instead of slowly cutting back emissions, we should quickly push ahead with the conversion to solar energy and use fossil power plants at full capacity for one last time to do so.

  10. Macrogrid study: Big value in connecting America?s eastern and western power grids
    A 'macrogrid' that increases the electricity moving between America's Eastern and Western interconnections, two of the biggest power grids on the planet, would more than pay for itself, according to new research.
