Unlike conventional unidirectional towers, which rely on hot air rising, the new design combines the upward and downward flow of air, more than doubling power output
A microscopic network of channels in bluebird feathers gives it its characteristic hue; mimicking that structure could give better batteries and water filters
In a side-by-side comparison, researchers found that it makes more sense to cover the drier parts of the world with solar panels than new forests.
We may be overestimating the emissions savings from EVs and under-utilizing them to reap benefits, a new study finds.
Waste heat from over 5,000 underground parking lots in Berlin could meet the demand of of 14,660 average German households, scientists found, while helping improve groundwater quality and biodiversity
By encasing bacteria in a tough but porous coating, researchers have made paint that could be used to capture carbon and produce biofuels
Engineers sent novel low-cost, lightweight solar cells into space and found that they worked for six years--the mission was meant to last for one.
Architects show that it is possible to cool a ventilated building below outside temperatures using an uninsulated roof that sends heat to the sky day and night, while regularly changing indoor air for health
Using a clever combination of materials and design, engineers have made a battery-like device that is strong enough to provide mechanical support.
Lightweight, biodegradable loofah sponges can produce enough electricity to power LEDs when repeatedly squeezed, hinting at green power sources of the future
