Research to Secure Our Energy Future

Michigan State University scientists have released a new genetic engineering toolkit for the algal species Nannochloropsis oceanica. It is of interest for the production of biofuels and other oil-based chemicals.
A Northwestern University research team has found ways to stabilize a new battery with a record-high charge capacity, which could pave the way for less expensive, longer-lasting batteries for electric vehicles.
Researchers at Yale and Donghua University in China have developed a new process for creating lithium metal that may boost the energy and capacity of rechargeable batteries.
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.
Stanford scientists have developed a manganese-hydrogen battery that could fill a missing piece in the nation’s energy puzzle by storing wind and solar energy for when it is needed, lessening the need to burn carbon-emitting fossil fuels.
A team of researchers from the University of Maryland has created a water-based zinc battery that is simultaneously powerful, rechargeable, and intrinsically safe.
Aerospec Technologies, a drone inspection and analytics company, has set out to make operating a solar farm more efficient, safer, and ultimately, more predictable.
Northwestern University researchers have discovered a new approach for creating important new catalysts to aid in clean energy conversion and storage.

Engineers at the Georgia Institute of Technolgy have developed a new catalyst that speeds up oxygen processing and can easily convert chemical fuel into electricity.

An Iowa State University research group have been working to produce semiconductors from materials that are safe, abundant and inexpensive to manufacture.
