Sunlight could be used to power lasers

Sunlight, one of the planet's most abundant sources of renewable energy, could be used to power lasers, according to a study from Heriot-Watt University.

New theories and materials aid the transition to clean energy

With each passing day, the dark side of our addiction to fossil fuels becomes more apparent. In addition to slashing emissions of carbon dioxide, society must find sustainable alternatives to power the modern world.

Catalysts found to convert carbon dioxide to fuel

The goal of tackling global warming by turning carbon dioxide into fuel could be one step closer with researchers using a supercomputer to identify a group of "single-atom" catalysts that could play a key role.

Carbon dioxide reactor makes Martian fuel
