QUT researchers have used carbon dots, created from human hair waste sourced from a Brisbane barbershop, to create a kind of “armour” to improve the performance of cutting-edge solar technology.
Imagine the process of distributing electricity to homes from the power grid is like travelers boarding a train.
As demand for low-carbon electricity rises around the world, nuclear power offers a promising solution. But how many countries are good candidates for nuclear energy development?
In Brazil, researchers are puzzling over socioeconomic and environmental indicators that do not add up.
Lakes store huge amounts of methane. In a new study, environmental scientists at the University of Basel offer suggestions for how it can be extracted and used as an energy source in the form of methanol.
India has set ambitious targets for renewable power, with plans to quintuple its current wind and solar energy capacity by 2030.
Perhaps the best hope for slowing climate change – capturing and storing carbon dioxide emissions underground – has remained elusive due in part to uncertainty about its economic feasibility.
University of Texas at Dallas researchers have discovered that a novel surface they developed to harvest water from the air encourages tiny water droplets to move spontaneously into larger droplets.
Floating solar farms could help to protect lakes and reservoirs from some of the harms of climate change, a new study suggests.
The world needs more electricity. As populations grow, standards of living increase and more people gain access to modern conveniences, countries will need to expand their energy generation capacity.
