Newswise: Modified quantum dots capture more energy from light and lose less to heat

Modified quantum dots capture more energy from light and lose less to heat

Los Alamos National Laboratory

Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists have synthesized magnetically-doped quantum dots that capture the kinetic energy of electrons created by ultraviolet light before it’s wasted as heat.

Agronomists detail the benefits of updating agricultural drainage infrastructure in new study

Iowa State University

The massive underground infrastructure that allows farmers to cultivate crops on much of the world’s most productive land has outlived its design life and should be updated, according to a new study. Installing higher-capacity pipes and conservation practices would yield a wide range of production and environmental benefits.

Newswise: Wind power from the Sky

Wind power from the Sky

Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology

To harvest wind energy, you don't necessarily need rotors on steel masts – light kites on thin ropes can do the same. The Empa spin-off TwingTec has been researching this technology for some time now. Last autumn, it was possible for the first time to start, generate electrical energy while flying and then land again, all in the specified level of automation.

First Fully Rechargeable Carbon Dioxide Battery with Carbon Neutrality

University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are the first to show that lithium-carbon dioxide batteries can be designed to operate in a fully rechargeable manner, and they have successfully tested a lithium-carbon dioxide battery prototype running up to 500 consecutive cycles of charge/recharge processes.

New Standard of Reference for Assessing Solar Forecast Proposed

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Being able to accurately forecast how much solar energy reaches the surface of the Earth is key to guiding decisions for running solar power plants and new work in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy looks to provide a standard of reference to the field. Dazhi Yang proposes an improved way to assess day-ahead solar forecasting, which combines two popular reference methods for weather forecasting, namely persistence and climatology. His approach provides a new way to gauge the skill of a forecaster.

Newswise: Engineers study icing/de-icing of wind turbine blades to improve winter power production

Engineers study icing/de-icing of wind turbine blades to improve winter power production

Iowa State University

A research group led by Iowa State's Hui Hu will use the university's Icing Research Tunnel to study icing of wind turbine blades. Studies have shown that ice accumulation on turbine blades can reduce power production by up to 50%. The team will also study ways to prevent or delay ice formation on the blades.
