In just one-step, researchers from Rice University have found a way to improve the efficiency of solar cells. Chemist Andrew Barron has developed a technique to etch nanoscale spikes into silicon that allows more than 99 percent of sunlight to reach the cells’ active elements where it can then be turned into electricity. Mr. Barron, along with Rice graduate student Yen-Tien Lu, has simplified the two-step process that...

Fuel cell runs on fossil fuels for cleaner power http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17614-fuel-cell-runs-on-fossil-fuels-for-cleaner-power http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17614-fuel-cell-runs-on-fossil-fuels-for-cleaner-power

The transportation sector has an emissions problem. The use of fossil fuels to power vehicles causes massive amounts of pollution and contributes to climate change. A new fuel cell developed at Washington State University is looking to solve the problem of burning fossil fuels by. . . using fossil fuels. Professors Su Ha and M. Grant Norton in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture have developed a fuel cell that can...

Floating wind turbine captures stronger winds for more clean power http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17563-floating-wind-turbine-captures-stronger-winds-for-more-clean-power http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17563-floating-wind-turbine-captures-stronger-winds-for-more-clean-power

A new, floating wind turbine design could bring clean, renewable power to off-grid areas. Alumni of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Ben Glass and Adam Rein, have launched a start-up called Altaeros which will develop the world’s first commercial airborne wind turbine. Their Buoyant Air Turbine, or B.A.T., uses a helium-filled shell - made of the same fabric used in blimps and sails - to hover around...

Nickel and iron used to create faster, cheaper biofuel process http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17540-nickel-and-iron-used-to-create-faster-cheaper-biofuel-process http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17540-nickel-and-iron-used-to-create-faster-cheaper-biofuel-process

By using a new, metal-based nanoparticle, scientists at the United States Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory are able to simplify the creation of biofuel from oil and fats. The Ames scientist use their nanoparticle to create green diesel, an alternative created from the hydrogenation of oils from renewable feedstocks like algae. Currently, oil from renewable feedstocks is used for fuel by reacting...

Perovskite solar material to reach conversion efficiency of over 30 percent http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17530-perovskite-solar-material-to-reach-conversion-efficiency-of-over-30-percent http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17530-perovskite-solar-material-to-reach-conversion-efficiency-of-over-30-percent

A new crystalline solar material called perovskite is displaying efficiency levels above those of conventional solar materials. According to researchers at the United States Department of Energy’s National Renwable Energy Laboratory, the new material is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than anything they have seen before and could serve as the key to a less expensive way to generate electricity...

A new ceramic material developed by engineers at the University of California, San Diego, has been demonstrated to be able to store and release hydrogen safely and efficiency. The researchers used a compound made from mixture of calcium hexaboride, strontium and barium hexaboride to store hydrogen. The use of hydrogen as a power source could be a crucial component to a clean energy society. Hydrogen fuel cells are being used...

Tsunami-proof nuclear power plants to float on water http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17503-tsunami-proof-nuclear-power-plants-to-float-on-water http://www.ecoseed.org/technology/17503-tsunami-proof-nuclear-power-plants-to-float-on-water

A new design for nuclear power plants – which finds them built on floating platforms similar to those used for offshore oil drilling – could protect them from the consequences of tsunamis. In 2011, when an earthquake and subsequent tsunami struck Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the damage that caused the plants shutdown was mostly due to the lack of cooling for its reactor cores. A new design from the Massach...
