The long-awaited shale patch consolidation has arrived, sparking another bout of merger mania in the energy industry. It's reminiscent of the one in the late 1990s, just as the Internet bubble was exploding. But don't expect the stocks to rally t
This moving display model is likely what GM is referring to when it says it has a working GMC Hummer EV prototype.
Californians are facing the largest mass blackout so far this year as the state's biggest utility, PG&E Corp., prepares power shutoffs to prevent live wires from falling into dry brush and igniting wildfires with ferocious winds sweeping across th
GM just revealed details about the electric Hummer it plans to offer through its GMC division as a 2022 model sometime later next year - assuming there is a next year.
Kirk Sorensen has been a leader in promoting thorium energy, molten salt nuclear reactors and the liquid fluoride thorium reactor. Kirk formed the company Flibe Energy back in 2011. Nextbigfuture spoke with Kirk frequently when Kirk blogged at Energy
There are dozen nuclear reactors that in applying or in the process of getting vendor design reviews from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.
Bruce Power and Westinghouse Electric have agreed to develop applications for Westinghouse's leading eVinci™ micro reactor program within Canada.
The largest cross-country 18-wheel trucks will need five to 10 times more electricity than an electric car to recharge its battery. And these trucks often need to recharge far from high-power transmission lines.
University of Rochester researchers squeezed carbonaceous sulfur hydride in a diamond anvil and it superconducted at 15 degrees Celsius under 270 gigapascals of pressure. This is about 2.5 million times regular atmospheric pressure.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems new high-temperature superconductor (HTS) cable can be engineered into magnets directly applicable to the high magnetic field approach to fusion. The new HTS cable, called VIPER, can carry over fifty thousand amps of curre
25 states plus the District of Columbia now use kWh-based pricing on the network.
Alternative 'clean' energy has been an intentional disaster for the planet, costing taxpayers trillions while disrupting inexpensive and reliable energy sources like natural gas, coal and oil. This is a must-read report to understand the facts of
A team of physicists from the University of Arkansas (U of A) has successfully developed graphene-based circuits capable of providing nearly limitless power for small devices.
Many people won't find NeoCharge necessary, but those that do will REALLY appreciate it
...expanded their global military footprint in Africa, seeking basing rights in a half dozen countries and inking military cooperation agreements with 28 African governments...
Ever since the dawn of history, man has been fascinated with the heavens, and the possible ways to explore the infinite mystery.
Tesla Battery Day had the goal of the world producing 20 TWh per year of low cost, high energy density batteries.
French company Nawa technologies says it's already in production on a new electrode design that can radically boost the performance of existing and future battery chemistries, delivering up to 3x the energy density, 10x the power, vastly faster charg
In a future where most things in our everyday life are connected through the internet, devices and sensors will need to run without wires or batteries to be practical.
A generator can save the day when the power goes out. But, do you really need the biggest one you can find? Consider this alternative strategy instead.
NASA researchers have detected nuclear fusion in metal loaded with deuterium.
The decades-old dream of many scientists and science fiction writers may come true at some point over the next decade...
THRIVE II: This Is What It Takes brings viewers behind the scenes with the people and innovations that have the power to transform life for everyone. Follow a journey across the globe investigating the most promising solutions in energy, health, cons
Many will say that Tesla is an overvalued car company but forget to address an integral part of Tesla's business. In this video, I explain why Tesla battery farms will end power plants forever.
The SPARC Fusion reactor team have made good theoretical progress to the goal of a commercial nuclear fusion reactor.
At room temperature, micron-sized sheets of freestanding graphene are in constant motion, even in the presence of an applied bias voltage.
Totally safe, self-charging batteries that generate power for thousands of years ... It's an exciting thought, and when we wrote about California's NDB in August, the story generated all kinds of feedback.
Electric cars and solar panels seem like a match made in heaven: free, clean power as long as the sun shines.
