Building a better microbial fuel cell, using paper
Building a better microbial fuel cell, using paper
Significant progress in developing microbial fuel cells has been made by scientists, which rely on bacteria to generate an electrical current, that are cheaper and more efficient.
New engineered material can cool roofs, structures with zero energy consumption
New engineered material can cool roofs, structures with zero energy consumption
Engineers have developed a scalable manufactured metamaterial -- an engineered material with extraordinary properties not found in nature -- to act as a kind of air conditioning system for structures. It has the ability to cool objects even under direct sunlight with zero energy and water consumption.
Scientists design electricity generator that mimics trees
Scientists design electricity generator that mimics trees
A prototype biomimetic tree has been built that generates electricity when wind blows through its artificial leaves. The researchers think such technology may help people charge household appliances without the need for large wind turbines.
EU taking steps to improve energy efficiency in Europe
EU taking steps to improve energy efficiency in Europe
The EU has already achieved a final energy consumption that is below its 2020 target for energy efficiency, as the European Commission's second State of the Energy Union report and accompanying 2016 progress report on energy efficiency , released on 1 February 2017, make clear. Energy efficiency is one of the pillars of the EU's Energy Union strategy. It brings cost savings for consumers, in addition to benefits in the form of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and increased security of supply, competitiveness, health, sustainability of the European economy, and job creation.
New study: investing in renewable energy in the next 30 years
New study: investing in renewable energy in the next 30 years
A new study funded by the EU forecasts the likely evolution of European electricity markets between 2020 and 2050 and estimates how far renewable electricity projects will be able to finance themselves in this period without the need for public subsidies.
Versatile 2-dimensional material grown in lab
Versatile 2-dimensional material grown in lab
Researchers report that they are the first to grow a 2-D material with the ability to have many different properties.
Most stretchable elastomer for 3-D printing
Most stretchable elastomer for 3-D printing
Researchers have developed a family of highly stretchable and UV curable (SUV) elastomers that can be stretched by up to 1100%, and are suitable for UV curing based 3-D printing techniques. Using high resolution 3-D printing with the SUV elastomer compositions enables the direct creation of complex 3-D lattices or hollow structures that exhibit extremely large deformation. Fabrication time for such SUV elastomers is also greatly reduced.
Engineers harness stomach acid to power tiny sensors
Engineers harness stomach acid to power tiny sensors
Researchers have designed a small voltaic cell that are sustained by the acidic fluids in the stomach and generate enough power to run sensors or drug delivery devices that can reside in the gastrointestinal tract for extended periods. This type of power could offer a safer and longer-lasting alternative to the traditional batteries now used to power such devices.
Scientists develop
Scientists develop 'lab on a chip' that costs 1 cent to make
Microfluidics, electronics and inkjet technology underlie a newly developed all-in-one biochip that can analyze cells for research and clinical applications.
Dual-function nanorod LEDs could make multifunctional displays
Dual-function nanorod LEDs could make multifunctional displays
Cellphones and other devices could soon be controlled with touchless gestures and charge themselves using ambient light, thanks to new LED arrays that can both emit and detect light.
