Green energy needs legacy tech to work

Alix Paultre, Editorial Director, PSD

One of the problems with the debate over the development and deployment of alternate energy is that people on both sides of the discussion act as if energy delivery is a zero-sum game. Whenever electric cars come up people act as if the end goal is 100% usage of one technology or the other. The same goes for

Nanoparticle-based material turns up the heat on concentrated solar power

A new coating material developed by UCSD researchers could help make concentrated solar power (CSP) plants more efficient

The key factor when it comes to solar power plant efficiency – be they of the photovoltaic or concentrated solar power (CSP) variety – is the amount of light that can be captured by the light-absorbing material and converted into electricity or heat. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego
