Energy Sources

Cheap natural gas prices and the increasing availability of wind energy are pummeling the coal industry more than regulation, according to a new economic analysis from CU Boulder and North Carolina State University.
Iowa State University engineers have developed a process called autothermal pyrolysis that breaks down biomass for fuel and fertilizer.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded the University of Illinois a $10.6 million, five-year grant to transform two of the most productive crops in America into sustainable sources of biodiesel and biojet fuel.
Researchers at Cornell University have developed a new biofuel technology that may revolutionize the search for the perfect algal strain: algal droplet bioreactors on a chip.
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).
There’s more to the story than OPEC. Plus, how fracking stands to change the market.
Atlanta startup Quest Renewables helps power Atlanta's new football stadium with solar technology developed at Georgia Tech.
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.
Most commercial solar cells are made of silicon. A type of material called perovskite halides are a potential competitor of silicon, but they are sensitive to moisture and high temperatures. Exposure to either will quickly degrade these materials — rendering them useless. Researchers at the Argonne-Northwestern Solar Energy Research Center (ANSER) have developed a way to protect perovskites from water and stabilize them against heat.
