A computational modeling method developed at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering may help to fast-track the identification and design of new carbon capture and storage materials for use by the nation's ...
Scientists at the University of Waterloo have created a powder that can capture CO2 from factories and power plants.
In a groundbreaking study, researchers have successfully developed a method that could lead to unprecedented advances in computer speed and efficiency.
The problem with wind turbines is that they produce electricity "as the wind blows." When there are high winds, production increases and the price of electricity falls; when the wind tapers off, production decreases and the ...
Solar energy could be a huge source of power in Africa, but its potential has been stymied by storage batteries that are too expensive and inadequate for use in poor countries.
A new type of energy storage system could revolutionise energy storage and drop the charging time of electric cars from hours to seconds.
America's oldest nuclear power plant will shut down on Sept. 17, but the Oyster Creek plant near the New Jersey shore will stay right where it is for the next 60 years.
Generating power from the sun isn't the problem. The technology has been there for decades. Storing that power efficiently, however, has been a challenge.
Risk-based optimization scheme boosts confidence and profitability for future mixed-technology power plants
A scheme to balance risks may help realize the benefits of being able to combine complementary power technologies, such as thermal generation, wind power and energy storage. Such benefits include lower capital costs and more ...
The market for energy storage on the power grid is growing at a rapid clip, driven by declining prices and supportive government policies.
