Hong-Cai Zhou's team at Texas A&M University has developed many unique porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for hydrogen and methane storage. MOFs are especially designed porous materials that can hold large amounts of gases, some at levels... Read More
The safety issues of traditional lithium-ion batteries are well-documented: corrosion, toxic chemicals, and even fires and explosions. A new electrolyte material looks to put an end to these hazards; it's constructed out of non-corrosive and non-... Read More

Northwestern University researchers have found that microbial fuel cells designed to produce electricity and clean wastewater, or biofilm reactors, are more efficient when biofilms don't become too thick.
This team of researchers says that the United States’ large energy grid will not be able to handle an influx of new technology, like electric vehicles. They are developing ways for the grid to not only be able to provide EVs with electricity, but... Read More
The average person tends to know what plastic drip tape and soaker hoses are, but what is plastic mulch? In China alone, the equivalent area of South Carolina is covered with this fossil fuel based plastic sheet mulch every year and then the plastic... Read More
The Army Research Lab in Maryland looks at innovative ways to make the US Military the best equipped fighting force in the world. Looking at everything from better blast resistant armored vehicles to new materials for helmets to protect against head... Read More

Project GreenLight added direct current-powered (DC) servers as one of its instrumented server facility capabilities. This enables real-world experiments to gauge whether large computing facilities can operate on less power if they take alternating... Read More
If you're hosting an Easter dinner, why not make it energy-free? GreenPowerScience shows you how to cook at turkey with sunlight.
When our phones are about to die, what do we do? We charge the battery! But what if we had something more efficient than a battery? This research team from Northeastern University is working on a portable fuel cell that converts chemical energy... Read More
