PowerWINDows is not a Microsoft product, but a potential wind energy system designed for urban environments.
This off-grid street light gets all of its power from two solar panels, a helical wind turbine, and a battery back-up.
It’s been more than a hundred years since Thomas Edison made a commercially-viable light bulb. Since that time, the technology hasn’t improved much. Thanks to the LIFX bulb, the industry might undergo a bright - or at least a more colorful - future!
MIT researchers are proposing an energy storage system to stabilize the energy generated by off-shore wind turbines. Is it really feasible?
For renewable energy sources like solar and wind to make a significant impact on grid power, inexpensive and reliable energy storage is required. A new type of flow battery developed at Stanford University might be the answer.
A robot that climbs wind turbines makes inspections faster, safer, and less expensive.
Caltech's Biological Propulsion Laboratory proposes wind farms that consist of small vertical-axis wind turbines, citing their higher power density for a given plot of land.
A team of researchers in Dresden has developed a 3D printing process that creates small inexpensive thermoelectric generators that convert waste heat into electricity.
Researchers at MIT are wondering why photovoltaic system designers insist on thinking in only two dimensions. They’ve come up with a novel approach: arrange the panels into 3D structures.
Is it possible that more phones were returned than shipped?
A nanowire manufacturing technique promises to improve solar cell efficiency at a low cost.
