Lehigh Engineers Design More Efficient Tidal Turbine

Arindam Banerjee and his Turbulent Flow Design Group are studying different fairing shapes in a water tunnel facility located at Lehigh University's Packard Laboratory.

Imagine a single tidal turbine capable of powering a community of 50 to 70 homes all year long. That's the potential of turbines being developed by Verdant Power, which builds marine energy systems that harness power generated from currents. Turbines

Scientists Design new Grid Batteries for Renewable Energy

Berkeley Lab scientists have developed an affordable flow battery membrane for the electric grid from a new class of polymers called AquaPIM.

How do you store renewable energy so it's there when you need it, even when the sun isn't shining or the wind isn't blowing? Giant batteries designed for the electrical grid - called flow batteries, which store electricity in tanks of liquid electrolyte - could be the answer, but so far utilities have yet to

Cage Molecules = Sieves for Hydrogen Isotope Separation
A new hybrid material developed by scientists at the University of Liverpool may bring the dream of carbon-free nuclear fusion power a step closer. The separation of hydrogen's three isotopes (hydrogen, deuterium, and tritium) is of key importance for fusion power technology, but current technologies
