Essential Science: Alternative power from the microbial world

From biofuels to batteries, microorganisms provide unique and continual alternative resources for the energy industry. The question is whether they can provide this energy consistently and reliably? Several biotech startups think so.

First bio-compatible ion current battery invented

Bethesda - Technologists from University of Maryland have created a new kind of battery. The battery is bio-compatible, and it produces a similar type of of ion-based electrical energy as that used by humans and other animals.

Essential Science: New material promises better car batteries

In the technology conscious world everyone wants better batteries: more powerful in terms of charge retention, lighter, and more reliable. Batteries have lagged behind other technological advances. This could be about to change.

World's first 'battery-free' phone could change communications

Researchers have developed the first phone that doesn't require an electrical power supply. The prototype device is capable of harvesting energy from the air. It generates enough power to communicate using existing apps such as Skype.

Energy generating tarmac crystals to be tested

Los Angeles - This sounds a little sci-fi to start with: imagine if crystals were embedded in tarmac so that stationary cars could generate energy for storage when stuck in traffic jams? It's a study that's about to start.

Renewables now provide more than half UK electricity

London - The first week in June has seen renewables provide more than half U.K. electricity for first time. This sees the U.K.'s reliance upon fossil fuels decline significantly.

Improved electricity storage leads to innovation

A study from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee demonstrates how improved electrical storage technology spurs innovation and boosts the efficiency across the entire electricity sector.

Smartwatches could be charged by wrist motion

It may be possible to charge smart watches simply through body motions, such as tilting the wrist to view the face of the watch, a new technology study suggests. This is possible through the use of triboelectric nanogenerators.

Britain's first coal free day since the Victorian era

London - The U.K. experienced its first day of power generation during which time no coal was used. This is the first day that coal played no part since the early days of the Industrial Revolution.

Essential Science: New material generates low-cost electricity

A new material promises the potential to generate sufficient power to allow cooking pan to produce sufficient energy to charge a cell phone within a few hours. The new material is cheap to manufacture and works by using hot and cold air.

Building of coal fired power stations in decline

London - There has been a significant decline in the number of coal-fired power stations in pre-construction globally, according to a new report from several environmental organizations.

The ‘cold standard’: Would nuclear fusion be safer?

Several teams of physicists are pursuing the goal of nuclear fusion, as a theoretically unlimited source of so-called ‘green’ power. But have the environmental implications been fully considered and just how safe and green would nuclear fusion be?

Essential Science: A new path to nuclear fusion?

Physicists have reported on the quantum control of atoms, with the aim of one day creating fusion energy production. The ultimate goal is high-energy producing nuclear power plants to meet the world’s energy needs.

Internet of Things needs effective power systems to advance

The Internet of Things, the catch-all term of connected devices across multiple settings, is set to transform the way we interact with devices through our everyday lives. To advance the technological revolution further, efficient power is needed.

Energy collecting windows edge closer to reality

Imagine if the windows in your home were able to collect energy and covert this into power to run your heating or home appliances, leading to annual energy cost savings. Such a technological feat is becoming closer. We take a look at the latest research.

Three-pronged approach to electrical power generation

Much of the energy around us is wasted, such as the sunlight around us or the movements we make. What if this could be harnessed to create power to drive wearable devices and portable systems? Researchers have been looking into this.

Ability to charge electronic devices through Wi-Fi is here

Imagine being in a room and charging your smartphone or other mobile device wireless, simply by connecting to Wi-Fi? This is will soon be possible thanks to Disney Research.

Bacteria fed synthetic iron become electrical generators

Some bacteria are electrogenic, meaning they can generate current as part of their metabolism. Researchers have succeeded in conferring this ability onto bacteria that do not naturally have this function. The aim is sustainable electricity generation.

New battery designed to last for a decade

A new type of flow battery has been designed. The battery stores energy in organic molecules dissolved in neutral pH water. The novel chemistry gives the battery an exceptionally long lifetime.

Hydrogen production advanced through electron spinning

Hydrogen is one of the potential renewable energy sources and part of the strategy to reduce the use of fossil fuels. One of the problems is dealing with the generation of the chemical hydrogen peroxide. A new method overcomes this.

Bacteria powered battery built on sheet of paper

New York - In the quest to find new and efficient means of generating power a research group have developed a battery, resembling a thin sheet of paper, which is powered by microorganisms.

Scientists drill into volcano to obtain energy

In an impressive technological feat, scientists and engineers have succeeded in drilling a borehole into a volcano in Iceland with the aim of using the intense heat as an energy source.

99 percent of fake Apple chargers are dangerous

A safety test of over 400 fake Apple chargers has revealed a staggering 99 percent are dangerous and pose potentially fatal risks. It comes after Apple filed a lawsuit against a counterfeit charger manufacturer selling on Amazon.

Nanotechnology boosts solar power heating

Solar power, along with tidal power and wind power, represents the leading alternative energy technology. Scientists are seeking to improve efficiency and nanotechnology offers an answer.

Why the secret of blue begonias can improve energy efficiency

Colchester - The blue sheen on the leaves of some begonias hold the key to improving energy efficiency, at the levels of the nanoscale. Researchers have discovered that chloroplasts have evolved a nanoscale light-trapping structure.

Pollutant now valued by renewable energy companies

At least one organic compound, commonly classed as a pollutant, has the potential to be used to fashion cheap, reliable batteries for use with the energy renewables sector.

Controversial new fracking to go ahead in U.K.

The path is clear for fracking to go ahead in the U.K. after the British government upheld a fracking appeal in what is being heralded as a landmark ruling, paving the way for shale gas extraction.
