The effect that fossil fuels are having on the climate emergency is driving an international push to use low-carbon sources of energy.
Tesla is having a banner year, and we’re not even two months in. After reaching what was an all-time high in December at a value of $393.15 per share, last Wednesday the company’s stock closed at more than double that: $917.42 per share.
How to dispose of old batteries from redundant electric vehicles? The good news: we can harvest their valuable parts to make new ones.
Imagine a world where transport is free, air is clean, and streets are quiet. Imagine a world where education is attainable, power available, and healthcare accessible to all. Imagine a world where the cost of living goes down instead of up
“What’s past is prologue.” So says the famed quote from Shakespeare’s The Tempest, alleging that we can look to what has already happened as an indication of what will happen next.
A special kind of solar cell could work at night, researchers say.
Biosolids – primarily dead bacteria – from sewage plants are usually dumped into landfills. However, they are rich in nutrients and can potentially be used as fertilizers.
Your smartphone is far more powerful than the NASA computers that put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon in 1969, but it is also an energy hog.
Using hydrogen as a clean fuel is an idea whose time may be coming. For Australia, producing hydrogen is alluring: it could create a lucrative new domestic industry and help the world achieve a carbon-free future.
Many experts view the electric power grid as the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th century.
The UK government plans to ban the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars by 2040. Clearly the plan is for all citizens to be driving electric or hybrid-electric cars, or – better still – riding bicycles.
Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to pull into a fueling station, plug their car in, and, in 10 minutes, drive out with a fully charged battery, according to a team of engineers
It’s common consensus in the tech industry that the days of cars as we know them—powered by gas, driven by humans, and individually owned by all who want and can afford one—are numbered.
Cities are fast becoming “smart”, and the impact on people’s lives can be immense. Singapore’s smart traffic cameras restrict traffic depending on volume, and ease the commute of thousands of passengers every day.
In China, the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, putting more electric vehicles on the road is critical.
The next generation of cell service, 5G, touts great consumer benefits including high speeds, low latency, and better reliability.
Australia’s first commercial installation of printed solar cells, made using specialised semiconducting inks and printed using a conventional reel-to-reel printer, has been installed on a factory roof in Newcastle.
The short film Slaughterbots depicts a near future in which swarms of micro drones assassinate thousands of people for their political beliefs.
Despite being such a sunkissed country, Australia is still lagging behind in the race to embrace solar power.
Low energy efficiency is already a major problem for petrol and diesel vehicles. Typically, only 20% of the overall well-to-wheel energy is actually used to power these vehicles.
We could be a step closer to flexible solar cells that can go on curved surfaces thanks to a discovery that challenges conventional thinking about one of the key components of these devices, researchers report.
It is 1950 and a group of scientists are walking to lunch against the majestic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
In the wake of South Australia’s wild weather and state-wide blackout, both Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg have emphasised the importance of energy security.
