Accordion Shaped Innovative 3D Designed Solar Tower Doubles The Solar Power

Accordion Shaped Innovative 3D Designed Solar Tower Doubles The Solar Power

Intensive researchers around the world have always focused on improving the performance of solar photovoltaic cells and bringing down their cost. According to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers, because the cost of solar panels has dropped so much, it is the time designing 3D structures to take in more light and boost power output. Now, MIT researchers test show, building cubes or towers that extend the solar cells upward in 3 dimensional configurations can provide power output ranging from double to more than 20 times that of fixed flat panels with the same base area. In simple word, in a confined area, get double power through solar energy rather than using conventional method.

Giant Vertical Flower Pot Purifies Air

Giant Vertical Flower Pot Purifies Air

Are you looking for something to purify the indoor air of your home or office? If yes, then what are you planning to buy? Must be an Air Purifier machine which you have to set at your home or office. But, did you think, the purifier machine which purifies the non-purified air itself impure the air? Still interested in buying? Don’t worry. Now, you can purify air through Active Modular Phytoremediation (AMP) system. It’s cheap, Eco-friendly and it doesn’t impure air.

A Robot Fish : Becoming The Leader Of The Real Fish

A Robot Fish : Becoming The Leader Of The Real Fish

Can you remember, in school, may be we studied Ecology or some type of Ecosystem, 3 types of layer etc? According to the rules of Ecosystem in water, the smaller and weaker ones goes into the bigger and stronger ones. What a chain! But this chain system led some of the animals like fish to be extinct. Researchers at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University have made a fish alike robot, that can behave like an original fish and can save the existence of extinct fish.

Urban Green Energy Brings Fusion – The Ultimate Cleantech Solution For Telecom Applications

Urban Green Energy Brings Fusion – The Ultimate Cleantech Solution For Telecom Applications

Recently, Urban Green Energy (UGE) has announced to launch its versatile technology ‘Fusion.’ Fusion is new renewable wind and solar solution system that reduces operating costs for off-grid telecom towers and minimizes environmental footprint. In plain word, it will decrease the operating costs at off-grid telecom sites with upgraded technology. No doubt, this will reduce the dependency rate of telecom tower on diesel generators.

Walney Wind Farm Is The World’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Walney Wind Farm Is The World’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Another milestone was achieved in getting the earth greener and utilizing the best that nature has to offer man, the world’s largest offshore wind farm opened for business. The Walney wind farm is located off the coast of Cumbria in the UK and is now the world’s largest offshore wind facility. It has one hundred and two turbines spread over 73 sq km (28 sq miles) and provide a maximum output of 367.2 MW that can give power to around 320,000 homes. Now this is some facility that can give charge to that many numbers of residences, it is actually half as many as the total number in Cumbria.

Natural Gas Being Produced For Car From Fruit And Vegetable Waste

Natural Gas Being Produced For Car From Fruit And Vegetable Waste

Did anyone ever imagine, cars will get natural gas produced from fruit and vegetable waste? Some people might say, I’m talking nonsense. But my friends, truth is bitter and stranger than fiction. Researchers at Fraunhofer have developed a Pilot Plant that can make methane from fruit and vegetable wastage. This produced methane can be used to power vehicles. Sounds like, Strange!

Researchers Found New Power Source

Researchers Found New Power Source

Power can’t be destroyed neither can’t be created. Rather it can be transformed from one form to another. On the basic concept of this theory, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and RMIT University have made a breakthrough in energy storage and power generation. The power generated relative to the energy source size is 3 to 4 times greater than what is currently possible with the best lithium-ion batteries.

Google To Fund A Volcano Power Project In Oregon

Google To Fund A Volcano Power Project In Oregon

Green energy is coming back in the front line. Since when? Well since Google and the U.S. Department of Energy decided to fund a $43 million project that will bring 24 million gallons of water into the entrails of a dormant volcano in Oregon, with the intent of generating a powerful stream that one day may be used to power turbines. They in turn, will produce clean electricity.

New Battery By IBM Allows 500 Miles In One Recharge For Electric Vehicles

New Battery By IBM Allows 500 Miles In One Recharge For Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles have been around for some time. But a major drawback of these vehicles is that they can’t operate much long without recharging. As a result, an EV can be taken on a short trip but you can’t take a long trip on it as there are no public EV charging stations. However, IBM’s new EV battery may solve this problem. This new battery will enable EV to go on a 500-mile journey without requiring another recharge. This will surely help EVs get more mainstream.
