Scientists from the University of Surrey have produced non-metal electro-catalysts for fuel cells that could pave the way for production of low-cost, environmentally friendly energy generation.
Governments need to give technical experts more autonomy and hold their nerve to provide more long-term stability when investing in clean energy, argue researchers in climate change and innovation policy in a new paper published.
Seven giant wind projects, each costing between $600 million and $4.5 billion, helped global clean energy investment to jump 40% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2017.
It converts heat into electricity up to three times more efficiently than silicon — a semiconductor material widely used in the electronics industry.
The finding may help scientists narrow their search for sites where geothermal energy – heat generated and stored in the Earth – could be sustainably recovered.
A major milestone has been achieved in China. The Northwest Province of Qinghai has just run for seven straight days entirely on renewable energy.
