(Image credit: GE)   GE announced that it is planning to build a wind turbine taller than some of the landmarks in the area, like the Seattle needle! Such a big endeavor called for international cooperation: GE, COBOD – a reputable European 3-D printing company, and ...
Charging stations around the world have significantly increased (Image Credit: Tesla)   Electric car charging points are on the rise around the world, and a new report details just how rapidly they’re growing. The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) recently published the 2020 EV Outlook report analyzes a number of crucial data points related to electric vehicle adoption, such as charging infrastructure.   Usually, charging infrastructures have been described as the R ...
Stanford University consistently brings us innovation. It’s astounding. An example of that is the team of engineers who created a clever way to transmit electricity wirelessly. The technology could send electricity to moving electric cars, drones and robots, and could be applied to electric cars driving on the highway or drones flying in the sky after it is scaled up.   Although a revolutionary idea, wireless electricity is a project, the team had been working on for a while now. Sh ...
The industry of coal is facing obstacles that suggest the industry might disappear completely in a near future. Progression of the Consumption of coal since 1950. (Image credit: EIA.GOV)   There was as time when light revolved around renewable sources of energy, in an indirect way. Water or wind power for mills, for example. Nowadays, electricity is generated through exploiting non-renewable sources − natural gas, coal and nuclear energy. In fact, in the US coal is the primary fuel u ...
Some researchers at the National University of Singapore developed an energy generator that utilizes a combination of light and shadow to produce electricity.
