Researchers develop new system to use solar power to produce clean fuels

Solar Power Clean Fuel - Sun Reflecting on water

New system leverages the power of the sun to produce sustainable fuels Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a new system that can generate fuel using solar power. The new system represents reaching another milestone in efforts to use renewable energy to produce sustainable fuels. Researchers based their efforts on several previews endeavors, many of which involved mimicking photosynthesis in order to turn sunlight into electrical power. This electricity is then used to trigger chemical reactions. System can convert fuel precursors into ethanol and ethylene In the…

Nanoptek introduces their solar hydrogen generator to the commercial market

The sun has been a source of energy for millennia. However, it was not until very recently that humanity was able to harness that power in an efficient way. Solar power is considered to be one of the most promising alternative energies, offering to change the way people perceive energy. The drawback to solar power, however, is that panels used to collect energy must have constant exposure to the sun. Because of this, a cloudy day can sometimes mean the difference between electricity or black out. These types of drawbacks…
