Nanocomposite materials can pave the way for fusion power plants

On the theoretical level, fusion, the process that fuels the sun, can provide unlimited clean energy for humanity. However, fusion-based power plants have seemingly been out of range from the realm of practicality, simply because scientists are not aware of many materials that could survive the punishing conditions concocted inside a fusion nuclear reactor. But…







Nuclear Fusion Could Completely Eliminate The Need For Fossil Fuels By 2030-1

Nuclear fusion could completely eliminate the need for fossil fuels by 2030

Nuclear fusion has long been hailed as a near-perfect solution to the burgeoning global energy crisis. Centered around the replication of reactions occurring in the sun, this process involves the fusion of two lightweight atoms like hydrogen at extremely high temperatures, resulting in the release of large amounts of energy as well as the creation…


French Government Unveils World's Very First Solar Panel-Fitted Road-2

French government unveils world’s very first solar panel-fitted road

Back in February of this year, we revealed France's plan to install solar panels on 1,000 km of its roads. As part of that initiative, the country's Minister of Environment Marie-Ségolène Royal recently unveiled what they are claiming is the world's very first solar road. Extending over a distance of one kilometer, the pathway in…


South Australia Just Produced 83% Of Electricity From Wind Energy-3

South Australia just produced 83-percent of its electricity from wind energy

Thanks to a particularly windy weekend, South Australia recently saw nearly 83-percent of its total electricity coming solely from eco-friendly wind energy. Although the harsh weather conditions led to power outages in some of the places, its advantages far outweigh the temporary inconvenience. According to officials, wind turbines installed in the area captured much of…


Scientists Generate New Form Of Renewable Energy Via Osmosis-2

New renewable energy source relies on water, salt and osmosis to generate electricity

At a time when renewable energy is slowly but surely overtaking conventional fossil fuels, scientists at EPFL’s Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology have successfully demonstrated the electricity-producing capabilities of yet another sustainable power source: osmosis. Unusual though it is, the natural phenomenon has been found to generate usable power when fresh water comes in contact with…
