Thermoelectric Cooling, Heating, Generation 2022-2042

Thermoelectric devices can be energy harvesters making electricity from ambient temperature differences (bottom left or thermoelectric cooling equipment. In the case of thermoelectric energy harvesters known as thermoelectric generators TEG, the same principle can be used for sensing, the power involved being much less.

Old Power Stations Become Fabulous Green Assets

Old Power Stations Become Fabulous Green Assets

Coal, oil, and gas power stations are turning out to be expensive write-offs for power companies, particularly facilities that are not very old. The new IDTechEx report, "Stationary Energy Storage Without Batteries: Grid, Microgrid, UPS, Trackside 2021-2041" has the answer - repurposing as energy storage.

Printed Electronics for Fashionable Wearables

Printed Electronics for Fashionable Wearables

Look around at any of the major fashion brands, and you start to see a pattern: there is not much there in the way of design-oriented, pro-science thinking. Those worlds have, unfortunately, remained separate for the most part. The general message that society is sending could not be any clearer: you can be beautiful, you can be smart, but you cannot be both.

Less Car Charging Beats Fast Charging Any Day

Less Car Charging Beats Fast Charging Any Day

Would you prefer a car with 600 miles/nearly 1000km range or half that? Fast charging is all the talk now but doubling then trebling the range is seismic.
