Research to Secure Our Energy Future

Princeton University scientists, working with a Harvard graduate student, is for the first time applying deep learning — a powerful new version of the machine learning form of AI — to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks that house the reactions.

Researchers at Indiana University's School of Public and Environmental Affairs found that public opinion of oil and gas development could be improved if firms were "green certified," meaning that they pledged to adhere to stricter environmental standards th

Researchers are examining ways to recycle electric vehicle batteries to help ensure that the influx of lithium-ion batteries doesn't undo the good work of electric vehicles.
Stony Brook University energy researchers will be testing a prototype storage battery called a vanadium flow battery that is designed to be more energy efficient than existing flow batteries.
A new study from researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and the U.S. Department of Energy could help speed up carbon-capturing devices for coal power plants, which could reduce the release of harmful quantities of carbon dioxide into the air and have the added benefit of bringing down energy costs.
A new computational model could potentially boost efficiencies and profits in natural gas production by better predicting previously hidden fracture mechanics while accurately accounting for the known amounts of gas released during the process.
A new era of growth in the field of perovskite solar cells began this month, with the publication of a paper that documents the maximum level of perovskite layer thickness that can be synthesized.
When deciding whether to participate in programs designed to conserve energy during peak hours, consumers appear to rely more on their intuition about how much money they’re saving rather than on proof their bills are smaller, a new study has found.
A team of researchers at Texas A&M University has created a synthetic material that will make solar energy a more cost-effective, efficient and reliable source of power.
New research highlights a previously underexplored consequence of wind energy farms: a wake effect from upwind wind farms that can reduce the energy production of their downwind neighbors.
