Lightweight parabolic mirrors for solar concentrators have been fabricated using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) and a nanometer scale optical surface smoothing technique.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) believes wind and solar will be equal or cheaper than fossil fuels by 2020.
The company plans to unveil its 'radically different' EV in 2021
"There's a healthy price for oil and energy and I believe that balances producing countries and consuming countries," Quartz quoted Dudley as saying on the sidelines of the conference One Young World in The Hague.
Carbon fiber as we know it is one of the most impressive materials in our toolkit.
I received a letter (below) from a reader who took issue with my taking issue with electric cars generally and Tesla specifically. This reader claimed to be a Libertarian – which staggered me like a punch from Ali in his prime.
High energy density sodium ion batteries using Cobalt oxide plating are providing better performance than lithium ion batteries.
This technology may someday power spacecraft, satellites, high-flying drones, and pacemakers.
More than 30 years after the worst nuclear disaster in history, the Chernobyl area is once again producing power.
The Trump Administration trade policy is nowhere so clear as in the energy area.
Is it just speed – and exclusivity – which make a Maserati (or a Porsche) exotic? If that's all it is, then electrified versions of these and other exotic cars ought to continue to sell...Maserati thinks they will.
Hmm … will it truly come to be? Perhaps, but it won't be this Rivian electric truck disguised as an F-150.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems a spinout from MIT has received additional funding from Breakthrough Energy Ventures (which investment from billionaires Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, Mukesh Ambani, and Richard Branson).
The quest to find new ways to harness solar power has taken a step forward after researchers successfully split water into hydrogen and oxygen by altering the photosynthetic machinery in plants.
NuScale Power has selected BWX Technologies Inc (BWXT) as the first manufacturer of its small modular reactor (SMR). This marks the transition to the manufacturing phase and represents major progress in bringing the technology to market.
The pulsed fission fusion propulsion (PuFF) system envisions using a pulsed z-pinch to compress a fission-fusion target. 2 mega-amps would be sent through a uranium-deuterium-tritium target. The uranium would fission first and then it would trigg
Gigafactory production capacity to hit 35 GWh annually this year.
We can produce very little antimatter and what we make is very difficult to store. These have been huge obstacles that have made antimatter propulsion many trillions of times beyond technological capabilities
Princeton Satellite system is creating a direct drive fusion propulsion and power systems for a phase II NASA NIAC study.
Everyone knows about Stormy Daniels. How many know that the United States is now a net exporter of oil?
The issue of nuclear safety has been a hot topic in the second half of 2018. It has just been discussed in detail at the 62nd International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) conference in Geneva, which was held Sept. 17-21. The international conference on
MIT has made a battery partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously conv
Technology advancements and cost reductions have driven wind power down to 2 cents per kwh. This is from the annual report released by the U.S. Department of Energy and prepared by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).
Researchers used natural sunlight to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen using a mixture of biological components and manmade technologies. Academics at the Reisner Laboratory in Cambridge's Department of Chemistry developed the new techniq
Gazprom may be technically bigger but the market values the privately-owned and profit-driven Novatek more
As Hurricane Florence batters the southeastern U.S., a small army of drones is being assembled to quickly help identify and even fix damage caused by the storm.
Solid Power promises all solid-state batteries (ASSB). Established in 2012, Solid Power from Louisville, Colorado that develops all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) has closed $20 million in a Series A investment round.
Hurricane Florence could unleash two dozen Fukushima's. Nobody in the MSM or in government are talking about the dangers. What do the experts say?
flooding, storm surge threaten cooling operations... (Natural News) At least twelve operating nuclear reactors are in the predicted path of Hurricane Florence, which has been upgraded to a category 4 storm as it surges toward the U.S. East Coast. Acc
