Engineered bacteria could be missing link in energy storage

Engineered bacteria could be missing link in energy storage

One of the big issues with sustainable energy systems is how to store electricity that's generated from wind, solar and waves. At present, no existing technology provides large-scale storage and energy retrieval for sustainable energy at a low financial and environmental cost.

Quantum dots enhance stability of solar-harvesting perovskite crystals

Researchers have combined two emerging technologies for next-generation solar power — and discovered that each one helps stabilize the other. The resulting hybrid material is a major step toward reducing the cost of solar power while multiplying the ways it can be used.

Deployment of grid-scale flow batteries in Africa

Power Africa works with African governments and coordinates the efforts of 12 U.S. government agencies, 18 bilateral and multilateral partners, and nearly 150 private companies to remove barriers that impede energy development in sub-Saharan Africa. It was launched in 2013 with the goal of increasing access and availability of electric power throughout sub-Saharan Africa - where two out of three residents lack this basic service.

Homemade energy gets boost to go mainstream

New rules and initiatives to support communities wanting to produce their own renewable energy could help ordinary people play a key role in the European Union's transition to clean energy. These moves, which include new EU legislation and the rollout of so-called living labs around Europe, look set to bolster people's growing push to get involved in producing clean energy.

Underwater power generation

Underwater vehicles, diving robots, and detectors require their own energy supply to operate for long periods independent of ships. A new, inexpensive system for the direct electrochemical extraction of energy from seawater offers the advantage of also being able to handle short spikes in power demand, while maintaining longer term steady power.
