Extracting clean fuel from sunlight

04-Sep-2019

Securing enough energy to meet human needs is one of the greatest challenges society has ever faced. Previously reliable sources--oil, gas and coal--are degrading air quality, devastating land and ocean and altering the fragile balance of the global climate, through the release of CO2 and other ...

Electrochemical extraction of energy from seawater

Power generator autonomously switches between two functional modes

15-May-2019

Underwater vehicles, diving robots, and detectors require their own energy supply to operate for long periods independent of ships. A new, inexpensive system for the direct electrochemical extraction of energy from seawater offers the advantage of also being able to handle short spikes in power ...

Transforming waste heat into clean energy

Researchers use supercomputers to explore new materials for thermoelectric generation

03-May-2019

Do you feel the warmth coming off your computer or cell phone? That's wasted energy radiating from the device. With automobiles, it is estimated that 60% of fuel efficiency is lost due to waste heat. Is it possible to capture this energy and convert it into electricity? Researchers working in the ...

Improving the lifetime of bioelectrodes for solar energy conversion

29-Apr-2019

The key to a long life for bioelectrodes lies in an oxygen-free environment. The use of proteins involved in the photosynthetic process enables the development of affordable and efficient devices for energy conversion. However, although proteins such as photosystem I are robust in nature, the use ...

Bacteria could become a future source of electricity

28-Mar-2019

In recent years, researchers have tried to capture the electrical current that bacteria generate through their own metabolism. So far, however, the transfer of the current from the bacteria to a receiving electrode has not been efficient at all. Now, researchers from institutions including Lund ...

Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

It’s All in the Mix

21-Aug-2018

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have ...
