Superman can fly, leap over buildings, and accomplish feats that are, well, pretty superhuman. Yet this superhero doesn't just defy logic with his spectacular feats; he also defies the fundamental physics law of the conservation of energy.
Water is used around the world to produce electricity. Yet there may not be enough water in the world in order to meet demand by 2040, according to a new study.
Scientists may have found a new way to harness the vast amounts of wasted excess heat that are generated by industrial processes and electric power plants.
Creating matter from light? It sounds like something out of science fiction, right? Well scientists have managed to take something that seems improbable and devise an experiment to make it possible.
There's a new, environmentally friendly solar cell that uses tin instead of lead perovskite in order to harvest light. The low-cost solar cell could potentially be a breakthrough for solar energy.
When we consume sugar, it is converted into energy through the process of metabolism. Researchers are currently exploring this conversion process in various forms to be used for everyday energy and power.
For the first time in scientific history scientists have harnessed the power of nuclear fusion in a reaction that occurred in under a second. Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California recorded the successful reaction.
During last week’s State of the Union Address, President Obama preached the importance of the energy boom as a means for economic revival. "One of the biggest factors in bringing more jobs back is our commitment to American energy," he said. "Businesses plan to invest almost $100 billion in new fa...
Researchers have made a breakthrough when it comes to generating hydrogen. They've discovered a way to create hydrogen from water using sunlight, which may potentially result in a clean and renewable source of energy for the future.
Steve Kingsley, 66, a food scientist from New Jersey formulated a caffeine sprinkler called CaffeinAll, which provides instant energy when sprinkled on any food or beverage without changing the taste or flavour. . Each shot from the bottle will squirt about 33 mg of caffeine powder, it's being warne...
Stanford scientists have created the thinnest and most efficient absorber of visible light on record, paving the way to better solar cells for cleaner energy.
A series of metal-organic materials (MOMs) that capture carbon dioxide from pre- and post-energy production have tremendous potential for reducing global warming and removing impurities from gases.
