Converting Wi-Fi signals to electricity with new 2-D materials

Converting Wi-Fi signals to electricity with new 2-D materials

Imagine a world where smartphones, laptops, wearables, and other electronics are powered without batteries. Researchers from MIT and elsewhere have taken a step in that direction, with the first fully flexible device that can convert energy from Wi-Fi signals into electricity that could power electronics.

Polymer power potential

Polymer power potential

The mantra 'reduce, reuse, recycle' is increasingly pertinent. Every year, vast amounts of energy that could be captured and reused is lost through waste heat. Now, scientists have demonstrated, through theoretical calculations, that it may be possible to fabricate thermoelectric organic polymers that can convert heat into electrical energy with high efficiency.

Dilemma of Automotive Vertical Integration

Dilemma of Automotive Vertical Integration

It is a rule-of-thumb that manufacturers should vertically integrate only when products and markets mature, so they can confidently shave off the last pennies of cost. One exception is when shortages loom: Tesla built its battery gigafactory fast using proven Panasonic technology. However, many suppliers now build battery gigafactories.

Columbia exceeds renewable energy target

Columbia exceeded the target for creating renewable energy and increased by 9 percent from last year. Last year, Columbia's renewable electric supply came from wind (12.34 percent), landfill gas (3.24 percent) and solar (0.12 percent). The total amount supplied in 2017 was 15.70 percent which exceeds the requirement of 5 percent by 10.7 percent.
