hydrogen, light, fat

Solar energy steals most of the spotlight these days when it comes to renewable energy. But hydrogen fuel has always remained a promising candidate for a green energy source. Hydrogen never hit its stride like solar did; it never became exponentially easier or cheaper to produce and distribute over time. But U.S. and Russian scientists […]

scarabane, off the grid11

The idea of glamping (camping glamorously) has gone from parody to practice in recent years. Concurrently, the options available for green living have also multiplied. Ecocapsules will arrive in 2018, Volkswagen’s sustainable microbus is coming in 2022, and a Tesla tiny house is currently touring Australia. More recently, France’s Green Cat Technologies revealed the concept […]

MIT Breaks Nuclear Fusion Record and Improves It by Ten Fold

Solar energy has been the attention-grabber in the crowded field of alternative energy for the last few years. But researchers at MIT and several other institutions discovered a new way to make plasma fuel hot enough to generate nuclear fusion power. What is Nuclear Fusion? Nuclear fusion is the process used by the Sun and other […]

Hydrogen Fuel

Up until now, scientists have yet to find a way to harness hydrogen as a clean energy source for two reasons: one, it’s difficult to store; and two: you can’t carry it safely anywhere. Those are pretty big problems especially if you want to use hydrogen fuel as an alternative to electric battery power in […]

The biggest problem with batteries, whether it’s lithium-ion or new flow, is degrading energy storage. Batteries just don’t maintain their performance after repeated charging cycles. Researchers from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences created a nontoxic, non-corrosive, long-lasting new flow battery that loses only “1% of its capacity per 1,000 cycles.” This could […]
