Membranes originally developed for purifying water in the reverse osmosis (RO) treatment process, commonly used in electrolyzers, are used to remove salt from water to help turn sea water into hydrogen fuel.
A look at hydrogen, from generation to blending with natural gas
An atomic mechanism that makes some thermoelectric materials efficient near high-temperature phase transition could help unlock better options for technologies reliant on transforming heat into electricity.
Heat-harnessing solar cells that reflect 99% of the energy they can’t convert to electricity could help bring down the price of storing renewable energy as heat and improve overall energy efficiency.
An elevated supply of natural gas and increased use of renewables, along with COVID-19 changing everyday life, has made energy prices drop to record lows.
Graphene coating enables new electrode designs with potential for electric vehicles
Rice University researchers turned adhesive tape into a silicon oxide film improve lithium metal technology and make them last longer.
University of Michigan researchers have made plastic conductive while also making it more transparent, which can improve large touchscreens, LED light panels and window-mounted infrared solar cells.
Researchers have found a way to advance safer rechargeable batteries with spectrometry. Their findings could improve batteries used for consumer electronics such as laptops and cellphones.
