Research to Secure Our Energy Future

Stanford professor is working on innovative cooling technology that could be the future of lower-energy air conditioning and refrigeration.
Stanford researchers believe that lake sediments preserved within ancient supervolcanoes can host large lithium-rich clay deposits.
Caltech chemists have figured out a new, more efficient way to create carbon-based fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2).
Tulane University researchers have discovered a new magnetic topological semimetal that could one day lead to more energy-efficient computers, televisions, cellphones and other electronics.
There’s more to the story than OPEC. Plus, how fracking stands to change the market.
When oil mixes with or enters into water, conventional methods of cleaning the water and removing the oil can be challenging, expensive and environmentally risky. But researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin believe they may have developed a better method.
As the climate warms globally, residential consumers could face increases in electricity bills of 12 percent, and commercial consumers could see increases of 9 percent, according to Boston University researchers.

Imagine Alexander Graham Bell’s reaction if someone handed him an iPhone and told him that the device in his hand was the same as the large, cone-mounted transmitter he invented and used to call Thomas Watson in 1876.

Northwestern’s Solar Fuels Institute (SOFI) is working on an "artificial tree" that uses a renewable energy source — the sun — to help capture carbon dioxide in the air and convert it into methanol.
Northwestern’s first-ever entry into the eighth U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon will be a student-designed 1,000-square-foot ultimate green home.
