Glasgow to be Home to First-of-a-Kind Hydrogen Storage Project

Glasgow to be Home to First-of-a-Kind Hydrogen Storage Project

A trailblazing hydrogen storage project near Glasgow has been backed by nearly £10 million in UK government funding. The cash boost will see the Whitelee green hydrogen project develop the UK's largest electrolyser, a system which converts water into hydrogen gas as a way to store energy. It will be located alongside ScottishPower's Whitelee Windfarm, the largest of its kind in the UK, and will produce and store hydrogen to supply local transport providers with zero-carbon fuel.

High Performance, Breathable Fabric to Power Small Electronics

The triboelectric effect is a phenomenon where a charge is generated on two dissimilar materials when the materials are moved apart after being in contact with each other. Triboelectric nanogenerators use this effect to convert mechanical motion into electrical energy. The compactness of TENGs allows them to be used as wearable devices that can harness the motion of the body to power electronics.
