Solar UK: Scientists develop pioneering new spray-on solar cells
posted by on Friday, August 01, 2014 - 01:00 PM

gfoat writes "A team of scientists at the University of Sheffield are the first to fabricate perovskite solar cells using a spray-painting process – a discovery that could help cut the cost of solar electricity. The discovery could help cut the cost of solar energy. Perovskite is a promising new material for solar cells. It has high efficiency with low materials costs. The Spray-painting method could be used in high volume manufacturing. Experts from the University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering have previously used the spray-painting method to produce solar cells using organic semiconductors - but using perovskite is a major step forward."

Green Motorsport UK: WAVE RETURN 2014
posted by on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 - 01:08 PM

gfoat writes "This year Team GMS had two entries in WAVE 2014. The WAVE consists of 4 different WAVE-events, and each WAVE-event will have one winner of the prestigieous WAVE TROPHY. All together there were 80 participating teams from all over the world. The WAVE aims to show that electric mobility powered by renewable energies is available and a great solution for our future mobility. WAVE is the world's leading and largest electric vehicle rally. Green MotorSports first entry was a prototype lightweight pure electric utility vehicle powered ( Number 3 ) by our revolutionary 2014 Cost effective liquid-cooled electric motor and the second WAVE entry was a iMiEV production car made by Mitsubishi. (Number 37) see Green MotorSport news for more info."

Political News UK: RenewableUK hails IPCC report
posted by on Sunday, April 13, 2014 - 09:44 AM

gfoat writes "Commenting on today's publication of the 5th UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, which calls for a shift away from fossil fuels to focus instead on developing renewable energy sources, RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive Maf Smith said: “When it comes to taking practical action against carbon emissions, the most useful tool in the kit is wind energy. It’s the most developed renewable technology we have, providing more than half the low-carbon electricity we generate in the UK. " RenewableUK is the trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables industries. Formed in 1978, and with nearly 600 corporate members, RenewableUK is the leading renewable energy trade association in the UK:

Energy Storage Battery offers 30-second charge time
posted by on Tuesday, April 08, 2014 - 08:49 PM

gfoat writes "An Israeli start-up called StoreDot has been reported to have displayed a device made of biological structures at Microsoft's Think Next Conference that can charge a smartphone from a dead battery state to full power in under 30 seconds. StoreDot’s technology can be applied in batteries for mobile devices, providing a sustainable solution that can replace lithium-ion batteries. Due to the size of StoreDot nanodots, the electrode capacitance is increased, resulting in next generation batteries that can be fully charged in minutes rather than hours. For more information see BBC News."

Global Impacts Climate inaction to be 'catastrophe'
posted by on Monday, March 31, 2014 - 02:14 PM

gfoat writes "Costs of inaction on climate change will be "catastrophic", according to US Secretary of State John Kerry. Mr Kerry was responding to a major report by the UN which described the impacts of global warming as "severe, pervasive and irreversible" One example of an adaptation strategy would be the construction of sea walls to protect against flooding.

Green Motorsport 2014 WAVE ELECTRIC CAR RALLY
posted by on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 09:34 AM

gfoat writes "The popularity of (WAVE), with its growing number of participants, has demonstrated how quickly battery powered vehicles are adapting to all types of driving conditions, from local urban roads to long distance routes and demanding conditions in the high Swiss Alps. A major objective of WAVE is to encourage the installation of the recharging infrastructure and each year we find more enthusiastic suppliers enabling us to recharge our cars. This will take some time to complete, but in the meantime, each WAVE team feeds electricity from a renewable source, such as wind or solar, into the grid in their home country. En route they can withdraw that energy from any power socket. Read the full news at Green MotorSport News"

Energy Storage US : Battery advance
posted by on Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 09:49 PM

gfoat writes "Researchers in the US have made an important step in the quest to store electricity from intermittent energy sources. At Harvard University, a team came up with a way to drive down the cost of flow battery technology, which is capable of storing energy on huge scales. The researchers say their new battery already performs as well as vanadium flow batteries, but uses no precious metals. Read the full article at BBC News"

Education Contraction and Convergence is a great proposition
posted by on Thursday, January 02, 2014 - 11:03 PM

gfoat writes "As we have a tremendous environmental crisis at hand, contraction and convergence is a very proper proposition. Lowering our greenhouse gas emissions is a good step towards a more liveable planet. Also, having the nations work in unison will help us become more united over this issue as a planet, and less divided among nations. C&C will allow all countries to a reasonable way to achieve low emissions by establishing entitlements or rewards for meeting target emission standards. This allows countries to continue to emit emissions as long as they are meeting goals set by a world governing standard. Another benefit from this solution will help poverty stricken nations become better economies through those standards. See the full details."

Future Fuels France: Hydrogen squeezed from Rocks
posted by on Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 08:45 PM

gfoat writes "It has been reported that Scientists from the University of Lyon have discovered a way to split hydrogen gas from water, using rocks. The new method may promise a new green energy source, providing hydrogen from a simple mixture of water and rocks. The method uses low temperatures and involves no fossil fuel. This type of "greener chemistry" could promise a route to new sources of free energy at a lower cost. See the full report at bbc news"

gfoat writes "The UK is reverting to using traditional nuclear power, but there are potential safety problems with conventional technology. With all solid fuel high pressure nuclear technologies there is the danger of reactor meltdown under certain circumstances, and there could be proliferation of nuclear weapons if plutonium becomes more widely available. It will also be necessary to store hazardous waste for 10,000 years. There is however, a safe alternative to our present nuclear reactors."
