Renewable Energy

Current
Chile is currently undergoing a renewable energy boom. Today, it's the second largest market for renewable energies in Latin America, and in 2016 Chile was the top-scoring renewable energy producer in the Americas and second in the world, beaten only by China. Two decades ago, when this process started, this

Next Step on the Path Towards an Efficient Biofuel Cell

This is Julian Szczesny, Nikola Markovi?, Felipe Conzuelo, Wolfgang Schuhmann and Adrian Ruff (from the left).

Fuel cells that work with the enzyme hydrogenase are, in principle, just as efficient as those that contain the expensive precious metal platinum as a catalyst. However, the enzymes need an aqueous environment, which makes it difficult for the starting material for the reaction - hydrogen - to reach the enzyme-loaded

A Bionic Mushroom That Generates Electricity

An electrode network (branched pattern) and cyanobacteria (spiral pattern) were 3D printed on a mushroom to produce bio-electricity.

In the quest to replace fossil fuels, scientists are always on the lookout for alternative, environmentally friendly sources of energy. But who could have imagined a bionic mushroom that produces electricity? It sounds like something straight out of Alice in Wonderland, but researchers have now generated

A Path Forward for Better use of Landfill gas as Energy

Schematic of the experimental setup of siloxane removal from a carrier gas by application of dielectric barrier discharge plasma

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Methane gas released from landfills has long been a topic of interest for alternative energy. One issue, however, is that landfill gases contain numerous contaminants, such as volatile methyl siloxanes, whose silica deposits put extra wear and tear on the natural gas generators when they

Inside job: A new Technique to Cool a Fusion Reactor

This is visible imaging of (a) shell pellet hitting low-field-side boundary of plasma, (b) continuing through plasma toward core, (c) ablating and releasing boron dust in core. (d) Expanded view of (c), highlighting shell and dust. (e) Plasma cross-section with red dot indicating pellet location at time of dust release in (c). Injection velocity ? 230 m/s.

PORTLAND, Ore.-- Fusion offers the potential of near limitless energy by heating a gas trapped in a magnetic field to incredibly high temperatures where atoms are so energetic that they fuse together when they collide. But if that hot gas, called a plasma, breaks free from the magnetic field, it must be safely
