The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $49.3 million in nuclear energy research, facility access, crosscutting technology development, and infrastructure awards for 58 advanced nuclear technology projects in 25 states.
Even if we study them at school, oxidation numbers have so far eluded any rigorous quantum mechanical definition. A new SISSA study, published in Nature Physics, reverses this state of affairs by providing such a definition, based on the theory of to
Super-H Mode allows tokamaks to achieve higher fusion performance than previously possible. In recent experiments operating in and near the Super H-mode regime, researchers have achieved record-breaking values of fusion gain for a device of DIII-D'
Murmansk, Russia (CNN)Next month, a floating nuclear power plant called the Akademik Lomonosov will be towed via the Northern Sea Route to its final destination in the Far East, after almost two decades in construction.
Russia plans to tow nuclear power station to the Arctic despite environmental campaigners branding it a 'floating Chernobyl'
Thick electrodes and solvent-free electrode manufacturing process are likely the next big step in battery tech.
Perhaps Tesla won't have to rely on Panasonic in the future?
Startup First Light Fusion (FLF) claims it is on target to achieve fusion gain (more energy out than goes in) by 2024. They are not using lasers or intense magnetic fields which can prove to be very complicated and costly to build. Pulsed power is th
A nanomaterial made from phosphorus, known as phosphorene, is shaping up as a key ingredient for more sustainable and efficient next-generation perovskite solar cells (PSCs).
It was supposed to supply cheaper, greener energy to up to 5000 homes but after six years and tens of millions of dollars, a cutting-edge solar energy project has produced nothing other than a large taxpayer-funded pile of scrap.
Mr. Danzik, the science and technology officer for Wyoming-based Inductance Energy Corp., says he has invented a magnetic generator, a flywheel system that extracts usable energy from the interplay of exotic magnets--also known as a free-energy devi
Nextbigfuture has had many articles that try to educate people that what we call nuclear waste is unused fuel for different nuclear reactors.
Solar is getting competitive on power generation costs but on average is more costly than nuclear power.
Subsidies – Biggest subsidies are for not charging oil, gas, and coal for air pollution and environmental damage. Next biggest bucket is various forms of tax incentives.
Did opponents of hydroelectric power argue that hydroelectric energy is not renewable? Actually, no.
Few first installations were already done and soon we hope to see more V3 Superchargers not only in California.
How electricity works in buildings, including power, current, voltage, direct and alternating current, transformers, and the compelling stories of Tesla and Edison

A new photonic chip could run optical neural networks 10 million times more efficiently than conventional chips.
Tesla cars have been able to last for one million miles but starting in 2020 the battery packs will be able to last for a million miles as well.
Moltex was founded in 2014 by Dr. Ian Scott, and was privately funded until 2018. Moltex's mission is to enable low-cost clean energy as a practical economic solution.
I answered a question on Quora about why is nuclear power generating more power than solar energy ? Nuclear generates over 2500 TWh and solar is at 500 TWh and heading to 900 TWh globally in 2022.
Thomas Jam Pedersen, engineer and co-founder of Copenhagen Atomics, was skeptical at first upon discovering and reading about thorium energy, which is present everywhere in the world and could technically provide an inexpensive energy supply for ever
Everything you ever wanted to know about Tesla and EV batteries right here.
Combining projection mapping and a pop-up book, Marco Tempest tells the visually arresting story of Nikola Tesla -- called "the greatest geek who ever lived" -- from his triumphant invention of alternating current to his penniless last days.
In the hundred-and-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the front-page articles from four Russian newspapers: Izvestia, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Kommersant, and Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
PG&E has devised a double whammy for the residents of California. Under the cover of the wave of fires in No Cal, they plan to shut down the power. No lights, no power, and nobody is asking any questions at this incredulous development. In the intere
