Sandia Looking to Reinvent Solar Power with Glitter-Sized Cells
A group of scientist from Sandia National Laboratories have invented tiny photovoltaic cells the size of glitter which could possibly change how solar energy...
Scientists Discover Huge Energy Source by Breaking a Nature Law In Ion Collider
Things are to be discussed, but it looks like scientists from the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, using their Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), created a symmetry-breaking bubble of space where parity, one of nature's fundamental concepts, no longer existed for a tiny fraction of a second.
Alaska Champions Geothermal Power, Plans Leasing Rights Public Offering
In Alaska’s Lower Cook Inlet, home of the active Augustine Volcano, the Division of Oil and Gas plans to offer the public the chance...
New Manufacturing Technology Promises to Improve CIGS Solar Cells' Efficiency
When it comes to power, everybody thinks about money and how we should make power-generating devices like solar cells become more efficient (read: more stuff for the same money and size). Thin film solar cells are yet another competitor to classic ones, and attract customers through the fact that they're thin, flexible and cheap. And they're also pretty inefficient (20% at most).
Voltaic Spark: 8-Watt Solar Powered Carrying Case for iPads and Other Gadgets
I've been writing about Nokia testing a solar powered version of one of their cellphones just the other day, and thought it's a pretty stupid idea to apply solar cells on phones since they're kept mostly inside pockets, and they aren't transparent. Today I found out that a company called Voltaic is releasing a solar powered carrying case for tablets - the Spark.
Undersea Power Line and Gas Pipeline to Help Iberian Peninsula
Portugal, Spain, and France finally agreed to build an undersea power line in the Bay of Biscay on Friday. The aim of the project...
100% Wind Powered: DC Government Agencies One Step Closer to Goal

On-Demand Hydrogen Production System for Commercial Use Released
eHydrogen Solutions, a company specialized in the development of on-demand hydrogen power stations, issued a press release announcing that they launched the "H2-Reactor Development Project". The H2-Reactor uses water as the hydrogen source, is self-contained and has an alloy of aluminum or magnesium as the reactive material (to get the hydrogen out of the oxygen bond).
New Concrete Plates Preserve Thermal Energy Storage Tanks
Increased annual energy production at significantly lower cost is the promise that engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas give to solar power plant...
