A new Department of Energy research facility could help bring the U.S. closer to generating power from the winds and waters along America's coasts and help alleviate a major hurdle for offshore wind and ocean power development.
Superconductors for efficient wind power plants: Researchers develop cooling system for novel generator
(Phys.org)—An efficient, robust, and compact wind power plant with a 10 MW superconducting generator is being developed by partners from industry and science within the recently established EU project SUPRAPOWER. Superconduction ...
With natural gas production rising, engineers and scientists are seeking ways to convert methane into useful chemicals. A finding in Nature Chemistry suggests a pathway.
Clothes that could literally light up your life were unveiled Tuesday by Japanese researchers who said their solar-cell fabric would eventually let wearers harvest energy on the go.
Japan may backpedal on its pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions by a quarter, an official said Wednesday, dealing a further blow to already deadlocked global warming talks in Doha.
The "carbonate-looping" method for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2), which has been researched at TU Darmstadt (Germany) could reduce power-plant CO2 emissions by more than 90 %, while utilizing less energy and incurring less ...
Morocco's pioneering 160-megawatt solar power plant took a step forward on Monday, securing European financing agreements worth 300 million euros ($385 million), or nearly half of the project's cost.
Lubricated, nanotextured surfaces improve performance of condensers in power and desalination plants, research finds
Condensers are a crucial part of today's power generation systems: About 80 percent of all the world's powerplants use them to turn steam back to water after it comes out of the turbines that turn generators. They are also ...
Fusion-fueled power generation has been the energy of the future for several decades.
