Argonne National Lab Breakthrough Turns Carbon Dioxide Into Ethanol

Argonne National Lab Breakthrough Turns Carbon Dioxide Into Ethanol

   by  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could do something useful with excess carbon dioxide other than deep in the bottom of the ocean? Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory may have discovered a way to do precisely that.Image credit:According to a from ANL, researchers at the lab, working with partners at Northern Illinois University, have discovered a new electrocatalyst that converts carbon dioxide and water into ethanol with very high energy efficiency, high selectivity for the desired final product, and low cost. Ethanol is a particularly desirable commodity because it is an...

New Perovskite Solar Cell Another Nail In Natural Gas Coffin

New Perovskite Solar Cell Another Nail In Natural Gas Coffin

   by  Just a few years ago, low cost natural gas was the main force pushing coal out of the power generation market, and now low cost solar power is sneaking up on low cost natural gas. So far the competition is a trickle, not a flood. However, natural gas stakeholders don’t have much breathing room left, as indicated by the latest perovskite solar cell research.This new perovskite solar cell research should send natural gas stakeholders running for the hills (photo cropped, via UC-San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering).The has already fallen off a cliff, primarily due to improvements in...

Brown.Before the pandemic hit, millions of children in America were already going hungry and facing food insecurity. The USDA stated that more than in the U.S. lived in food-insecure homes. This means that these households don’t have enough food for everyone to eat healthily.With the coronavirus, that number is projected to go up to 18 million children facing hunger this year.

Tiny Little Shrimp Could Spark Huge Energy Storage Breakthrough

Tiny Little Shrimp Could Spark Huge Energy Storage Breakthrough

   by  Low cost, large-scale energy storage is the key to accelerating the renewable energy revolution, and now shrimp have been enlisted in the cause. The aim is to push down the cost of flow batteries by using bio-based materials such as shrimp shells. That would help ramp up the transition out of fossil fuels and into clean power, thus saving the planet in time to avert a climate catastrophe. Thank you, shrimp. Wait, what is a flow battery?The dream of low cost, high efficiency, long duration flow battery energy storage technology could rest on the back of tiny creatures such as this...

3 Myths About Millennials & Electric Cars Are Costing Apartment Complex Owners Money | CleanTechnica

3 Myths About Millennials & Electric Cars Are Costing Apartment Complex Owners Money | CleanTechnica

by  Originally published on .Unless you are a millennial, everything you think you know about the generation born between 1981 and 1996 is probably wrong. That’s especially true if you own or manage a multi-family apartment property. Being a Gen Xer myself, I admit I believed some of the stereotypes too. In fact, a few weeks ago one of my coworkers offhandedly remarked that “millennials don’t buy electric vehicles (EVs) because they can’t afford them,” but rather than piling on, I did some digging instead. What I found out surprised me. Many of the generalizations about millennials are so...

Elon Musk: "Alien Technology" Is Coming

Elon Musk: "Alien Technology" Is Coming

Tesla’s Q4 2019 earnings call sent the stock into orbit during after-hours trading and in subsequent days.

Meanwhile, I was furiously taking notes during the company’s conference call, which had engaging questions from retail investors (via the innovative SAY.com platform), and assorted Wall Street analysts. Off-the-cuff remarks on the call often provide investors with the juiciest details. And this call didn’t disappoint. In light of this, I’ve compiled some of my favorite...

Tesla Critics Don't Understand (Or Just Ignore) Tesla's Mission

Tesla Critics Don't Understand (Or Just Ignore) Tesla's Mission

I used to find the debate between Tesla critics (most notably short sellers) and Tesla fans as somewhat interesting but mostly straightforward. Tesla critics somehow thought that Tesla inherently couldn’t make profits on its products. Tesla fans thought and explained how Tesla could. Tesla critics thought Tesla couldn’t learn the art and skill of efficient, smooth mass production. Tesla fans noted many times that this isn’t rocket science (ahem). Tesla critics thought major automakers would come out with electric vehicles superior to what Tesla offered and would thus kill the company. Tesla...
