Renewable Energy News -- ScienceDaily
  • Waste, an alternative source of energy to petroleum
    The development of sustainable refineries is the focus of recent research, where it is possible to produce fuels and raw materials providing an alternative to petroleum by using biomass and other waste materials like plastics, tires, etc. Conical spouted beds are the key to the high energy efficiency of these refineries.
  • Cheaper silicon means cheaper solar cells
    Researchers have pioneered a new approach to manufacturing solar cells that requires less silicon and can accommodate silicon with more impurities than is currently the standard. Those changes mean that solar cells can be made much more cheaply than at present.
  • Impact of offshore wind farms on marine species
    Offshore wind power is a valuable source of renewable energy that can help reduce carbon emissions. Technological advances are allowing higher capacity turbines to be installed in deeper water, but there is still much unknown about the effects on the environment. Scientists have now reviewed the potential impacts of offshore wind developments on marine species and make recommendations for future monitoring and assessment as interest in offshore wind energy grows around the world.

Mission Statement

  • To excite and educate the American public regarding our energy options especially as they relate to the long term strength of our economy, our national security, and our stewardship of the environment.To accelerate the adoption of hydrogen and fuel cell based technologies as part of our nation’s overall energy portfolio, with an understanding of the role hydrogen does (universal energy carrier) and does not (independent energy source) play.
  • To make the message “stick” by developing a powerful, yet simple brand.
