Creating a New Way to Store Solar Energy

By: Robbie Harris The solar energy industry is getting better and better at producing power at lower cost than ever before but storing that energy for a rainy day remains a major roadblock. Batteries have their limitations, but scientists at Virginia Tech are taking a cue from how nature’s plants store energy. Plants are actually nature’s storage systems for […]

Is The Energy-Storing Solar Cell Soon To Be Reality?

University of Erlangen-Nuremberg Storing solar energy is the central challenge facing energy researchers. Alongside traditional solutions such as solar cells or batteries, creative chemical concepts for storing energy are paving the way for entirely new opportunities. Intramolecular reactions are making it possible to transform solar energy and store it in a singular molecule. This may […]

India Will Soon Be Drinking Budweiser Beer Brewed Using Solar Power

By: Suneera Tandon Late last year, Anheuser-Busch (AB) InBev, the world’s largest brewer, announced its plans (pdf) to produce all its beer using renewable energy by 2025. By moving to renewable power at such scale, AB InBev claimed it would annually source 6 terawatt-hours of electricity—the amount produced by 400 football fields of solar panels annually—from sustainable […]

Tokyo Govt Hopes ‘Solar Road’ Will Lead To Greener Power

The Tokyo metropolitan government intends to take the initiative in introducing the new technologies of “solar roads” that collect energy from the sun via solar panels installed beneath the surface of roads and “power-generating floors” that generate electricity by utilizing the vibrations created by people walking, according to sources. The effort is aimed at promoting Tokyo […]
