Research to Secure Our Energy Future

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.
Five scientists from Michigan State University say that hydropower from dams has a legacy of underestimated costs and overestimated value.

Manganese is known for making stainless steel and aluminum soda cans. Now, researchers say the metal could advance one of the most promising sources of renewable energy: hydrogen fuel cells.

CU Boulder and University of Wyoming engineers have successfully scaled up an innovative water-cooling system capable of providing continuous day-and-night radiative cooling for structures.
Rice University scientists are counting on films of carbon nanotubes to make high-powered, fast-charging lithium metal batteries a logical replacement for common lithium-ion batteries.
Greenhouse gases and plastic waste are the targets of a USC chemistry startup. that is turning vegetable oil into renewable fuels and biodegradable plastic.
Harvard University researchers find that the transition to wind or solar power in the U.S. would require five to 20 times more land than previously thought, and, if such large-scale wind farms were built, would warm average surface temperatures over the continental U.S. by 0.24 degrees Celsius.
A Stanford University analysis suggests another way the government could encourage the oil and gas industry to capture and store carbon.
