Clean Energy Goals
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory California Institute of Technology, and UVA’s College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences made a discovery that could get rid of the problem in keeping and distributing solar energy. Therefore, this is a great advancement towards the future of clean energy.
One method of getting solar energy is through the use of solar electricity to separate water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen from this process will be kept as fuel so that it can be transported to …
More Powerful and Efficient Solar Cells Made Possible Through New Formulation
Researchers from Hiroshima University in Japan came up with different molecular and polymer semiconductors utilized as photo-absorbers to make solar cells that could generate electricity better and have more efficient power.
OPV or photovoltaics are what these newly blended solar cells are called. These could produce electricity when the light comes in contact with the photo-absorbers.
The comparison between the amount of electricity generated and the amount of light that comes in contact with the cell is the determining factor of a solar cell’s efficiency.
This is called photo harvest, which means the number of …
Advancements in New Hybrid Energy Systems Could Be Ideal For Shifting Into Clean Energy
Last week, Joule published a paper saying that the future of new hybrid systems could be ideal in transitioning into clean energy use.
According to the researchers from the 3 applied energy laboratories, namely the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, and Idaho National Laboratory from the Department of Energy in the US wrote a paper about the possible integration of these systems.
They mention that new ideas can influence the simultaneous use of different energy generators, including fossil, nuclear, and renewable, by capturing carbon. As a result, heat, mobility, power, and other …
Reaching Climate and Sustainability Goals through Renewables
Because of the increasing pressure on the issue of climate change, developing renewable energy has become urgent. A recent study serves as a guide in joining the goals of conserving and sustaining ecology and low-carbon targets.
The journal. Frontiers in Sustainability from the University of California, Davis, and John Hopkins University published this study. The goal is to assist decision-makers in preventing an unwanted environmental outcome from developing renewable energy.
According to Sarah Jordaan, one of the leading authors of the study and an assistant professor at John Hopkins University’s School of Advanced …
