Reversing the Move to Cities

Reversing the Move to Cities

While technologies are emerging for cities to be independent in food, water and energy, safe and pleasant, progress is mostly poor and global warming threatens migrants overwhelming cities. By all means, let us see the smart city advances take place that are in the IDTechEx report, "Smart Cities Market 2021-2041: Energy, Food, Water, Materials, Transportation Forecasts", but it would be prudent to try to reverse the move to cities that the UN and others see resulting in 70-80% of us in them by 2050.

Harvesting Energy from Radio Waves to Power Wearable Devices

Harvesting Energy from Radio Waves to Power Wearable Devices

From microwave ovens to Wi-Fi connections, the radio waves that permeate the environment are not just signals of energy consumed but are also sources of energy themselves.

Plants Would Grow Well in Solar Cell Greenhouses

Plants Would Grow Well in Solar Cell Greenhouses

A recent study shows that lettuce can be grown in greenhouses that filter out wavelengths of light used to generate solar power, demonstrating the feasibility of using see-through solar panels in greenhouses to generate electricity.

Polycarbonate Solar Vehicle Success

Polycarbonate Solar Vehicle Success

Photovoltaics is now a key enabling technology for land vehicles and boats. The favorite type is single crystal silicon - it used to be protected by an acrylic sheet on either side, making it bendable when being fitted, but that has strength and weathering issues. Now, much stronger, long-life polycarbonate is taking over.

Lessons Learned From the Closure of Petra Nova

Lessons Learned From the Closure of Petra Nova

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is generating much enthusiasm across the world, with the hopes that it could play a major role in the fight against climate change. However, amidst this enthusiasm, the industry suffered an apparent setback in mid-2020 when the Petra Nova facility in Texas, then the world's largest CCUS facility for a coal-fired power station, was closed down.

Big Breakthrough for Massless Energy Storage

Big Breakthrough for Massless Energy Storage

Researchers have produced a structural battery that performs ten times better than all previous versions. It contains carbon fibre that serves simultaneously as an electrode, conductor, and load-bearing material. Their latest research breakthrough paves the way for essentially 'massless' energy storage in vehicles and other technology.

NGK Wins Order for Renewable Energy Project in Mongolia

NGK Wins Order for Renewable Energy Project in Mongolia

The NAS batteries will be used in Mongolia's first solar power plant construction project with an adjoining battery energy storage system. The introduction of large-capacity NAS batteries alongside the solar power generation facilities will enable solar power-generated electricity to be used day or night.
