The Bionic Leaf can power your vehicles and help address the world’s fuel consumption problems someday. This new 'artificial leaf' uses solar energy to divide hydrogen-eating bacteria and water molecules to produce liquid fuels.

During past eclipses in the United States, no one had to wonder how the events would affect electricity supplies.  The California Public Utilities Commission has created a website, www.caleclipse.org, that asks state residents to pledge to conserve electricity during the eclipse, which will begin just after 9 a.m. and last almost until noon.  The organization that manages most of California’s electricity grid insists there’s no danger of the eclipse causing power failures.  California has…

Compact WaterCube, la máquina que convierte la energía solar en agua potable

The WaterCube designed by Ap Verheggen uses solar power to produce clean drinking water off the grid.

Fertilizer is made, in part, from ammonia.  Researchers have developed a method to produce ammonia simply from air and water by a method that is 30% more energy efficient than the century-old Haber-Bosch process currently in use all over the world and consumes about 2% of the world's energy supply.  If scaled up, this improvement would be a very huge deal.

Researchers have developed a method to produce ammonia simply from air and water. Not only is it more energy efficient than the century-old Haber-Bosch process currently in use all over the world, but it is also greener.
