New metal-mesh membrane could solve longstanding problems and lead to inexpensive power storage: Directly Quoting MIT News: “A type of battery first invented nearly five decades ago could catapult to the forefront of energy storage technologies, thanks to a new finding by researchers at MIT.
Fuel cells at a fraction of prior cost: UC Riverside creates fuel cell catalysts at a hundredth of the cost: Fuel cells have the potential to be a clean and efficient way to run cars, computers, and power stations, but the cost of producing them
High Albedo reflects sunlight Albedo is simply the “whiteness” of a surface; its ability to reflect light energy. Surface reflectivity is measured in values between Zero and One- Zero indicates complete black and one means totally white. When evaluating a surface, assigning it a value
Frog Design’s Modular, LEED certified school: Frog is a company headquartered in San Francisco doing innovative things with modular construction. No, scratch that. Project Frog is reinventing school construction. The firm is changing the nature of what we build, and how we build. Most of the
Prieto’s No Liquid Electrolyte Battery: Advances in battery energy and safety are critical, as lower priced energy storage is going to be an increasingly significant part of our energy delivery systems. Already, the price for a kilowatt hour of electric cars has been reduced significantly
The Windstalk- Renewable energy without a large wind farm: “Windstalk” energy devices fascinate us here at the WorkSmith. What has us scratching our heads is… why did it take so long to reconsider Dutch model of large blades and turbines? The Windstalk harnesses the energy
