Oceans – which after all cover some 71 % of the earth's surface – represent an untapped source of clean, renewable energy. Early demonstrations have already shown that the energy stored in waves can be captured by floating ...
The European Union (EU) regulatory framework for biofuels has the potential to address its climate, energy and environmental objectives, but only if carefully tailored and effectively implemented, according to research from ...
Today's batteries cannot take in all of a wind farm's energy on a blustery night and hold it until it is needed the next day. A promising option is to create a higher capacity battery by replacing the negative electrode in ...
A technology in development with the University of Leicester has the potential to revolutionise the sourcing of renewable energy from rivers.
In a quest to be more green, Apple says it is investing in Chinese solar power and preserving forests that make environmentally friendly paper.
Falling oil prices could have a negative impact on global efforts to develop renewable energy sources, experts warned Saturday at a conference in Abu Dhabi.
Solar panels, wind turbines, electric vehicles and other green power sources are proliferating rapidly, but their reliable integration into the existing electric grid is another story.
UNSW Australia's solar researchers have converted over 40% of the sunlight hitting a solar system into electricity, the highest efficiency ever reported.
Latin America spends billions of dollars subsidizing fossil fuels each year, but also has some of the world's largest renewable power programs, highlighting the energy-hungry region's divisions as it charts its future.
Improved liquid battery: Longer-lasting materials could enable batteries that make renewables more competitive
Researchers at MIT have improved a proposed liquid battery system that could enable renewable energy sources to compete with conventional power plants.
