Scientists Invent Ultra-Thin Battery-Like Device that Generates Electricity from Air MoistureâPerfect for Health Monitors
Imagine being able to generate electricity by harnessing moisture in the air around you with just everyday items like sea salt and a piece of fabric. That’s just what a team of researchers from Singapore has shown, having developed a moisture-driven battery made of a thin layer of fabric, sea salt, carbon ink, and a […]
Congressional Democrats and the White House seem to be planning to engage in a rare and fleeting moment of deferred gratification this week. John Wagner and Mariana Alfaro of the Washington Post report [bold, links added]: But what if Americans are…
Overall, the new bill is the first big step the US is taking to avoid runaway climate change
Water is the secret ingredient in a simple way to create key components for solar cells, X-ray detectors and other optoelectronics devices. The next generation of photovoltaics, semiconductors, and LEDs could be made using perovskitesâan exciting and versatile nanomaterial with a crystal structure. Perovskites have already shown similar efficiency to silicon, are cheaper to make, […]

Ultra Efficient âTandemâ Solar Panels Ditch the Silicon to Absorb More of the Sun’s Spectrum With Less Energy
German scientists have published details of their new solar panel, calling it the worldâs most efficient of its type, which uses a wider spectrum of sunlight. Existing solar technologies are made using silicon and cannot be improved much furtherâwhich makes it all the more important to find more efficient and more sustainable materials. Combining a […]
Saving fuel, slashing emissions, and cutting pollution are just some of the benefits of installing solar panels on public transportation buses—and the city of Munich is buying a ticket to the future by doing just that. Founded by a trio of German friends in 2016, Sono Motors went public in 2021, selling their Sion solar-paneled […]

Solar Panels That Make Electricity at Night are Finally Here – And Theyâre Cheap and Donât Need Batteries
About 750 million people in the world do not have access to electricity at night. Solar cells provide power during the day, but saving energy for later use requires substantial battery storage. Researchers from Stanford University constructed a photovoltaic cell that harvests energy from the environment during the day and night, avoiding the need for […]
Communities, companies, authorities, and investors are finding ways of transitioning to a more sustainable future. To do so, we need to know where the problems are on the planet. Some buildings may be expelling heat more inefficiently than others, or…
