University of Montana Students oppose EPA’s Plan to put Tax on Carbon

Students from University of Montana have opposed Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) plan to put a tax on carbon. According to the students, the plan couldn't be effective for Montana's high energy production capability.

Last week, Montana Department of Environmental Quality had discussed the issue in a public meeting held in Missoula.

Ohio State University Researchers Develop New “breathing" Solar Battery

Ohio State University Researchers Develop New “breathing" Solar Battery

Currently, solar energy is created with panels, which are then connected to external batteries to charge. Normally about 20% of the power generated by solar panels is lost in the transfer of electricity to the battery storage.

But now, researchers at The Ohio State University have created a hybrid device, which capable of revolutionizing the solar power industry.

Researchers Design Photoswitches that can Release Solar Energy Even in Dark

Researchers Design Photoswitches that can Release Solar Energy Even in Dark

Photoswitches that can store sun's heat and release it when needed i. e. either during day or night has been designed by researchers from MIT and Harvard. These are the materials that exist in two different configurations. After absorbing solar energy, size of photoswitches gets squeezed which later on regains their original structure by releasing heat.

Researchers Develop Novel Device to Harness Solar Energy

Researchers Develop Novel Device to Harness Solar Energy

Many benefits of solar energy have been reported over fossil fuels. Solar and Wind energy can be considered as one of the best natural sources of energy. But, one drawback associated with the use of solar energy is that it can be harvested only during day time.

According to a new report, researchers have found the solution to the problem of dependency of source of solar energy.

2D Tin could be Next Conducting Material, Says Scientists

2D Tin could be Next Conducting Material, Says Scientists

Have you ever thought that 2D Tin could be ever used as conducting material? The new research by the scientists states that 2D tin could be the world's first material to conduct electricity. Scientists claimed that 2D Tin could be the next super material, which would be capable of conducting electricity at room temperatures with 100% efficiency.

2047, Is the Expected Dooms Year for the World: Research

2047, Is the Expected Dooms Year for the World: Research

According to a new study, the scientists have pinpointed the probable dates locating, when the cities and ecosystems around the world will experience hotter or hottest climates, like never before.

Hypothetically these dates could be 2018 for Singapore, 2031 for Mexico, 2036 for Cairo and 2043 for Phoenix and Honolulu.

Also according to the researchers the whole world is going to doom in 2047, these dates are fictitious, but are the outcome of many investigations and researches by the scientists.

Researchers Create Generator to Produce Paper Pieces

Researchers Create Generator to Produce Paper Pieces

Lately, a generator has been developed by a group of Disney researchers. A report claimed that the new device has the ability to make paper pieces.

If the pieces of paper are manipulated, these have further potential to release power, which could in turn illuminate an LED.

As per the findings, the paper has been created using material, which carries a "semi-permanent" electric charge. Teflon is one charge holding electrets, which when rubbed against a normal paper sheet, the opposite charge is formed.

Water Drops on Metal Plate Could Lead to Better Power Plants

Water Drops on Metal Plate Could Lead to Better Power Plants

A recent experiment conducted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has suggested that charged water droplets could be created on a metal plate.

It was found that water drops create a superhydrophobic surface on a metal plate and carry an electric charge.

The researches conducted in the past had suggested that due to emission of excess energy from a superhydrophopic surface, the water drops does not slide down and rather jump. The action occurs especially when two or more than two water droplets come together.
