NREL found that a bacterium once used for fermenting alcohol can turn feedstocks into bioethanol.
Extracted from plants, the polymer not only produces biofuels, but also a surprising number of other products.
The president’s energy advisor says such a standard would be a boon to entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and scientists.
Those turbines aren’t all that reliable or efficient but researchers at Los Alamos are working on it, with some success.
The new Energy Efficiency Research Institute in Idaho is a research partnership
A biofuels consortium with government labs, universities and private industry as partners is looking for ways to commercialize algae as biofuel.
Could be. At any rate, that’s an interesting project at Argonne.
Is a game-changer afoot? Scientists at Brookhaven are optimistic.
Lawrence Livermore’s electromechanical battery could provide maximum bulk storage from a variety of sources with minimal energy loss.
Sandia researchers believe costs can be cut significantly by using liquid carbon dioxide instead of steam in turbines.
Hard to tell. But researchers have now developed a “black box” that’s amazingly accurate.
That’s the catchphrase and the call for 25 percent renewable electricity by 2025. Two senators, who happen to be cousins, explain how and why.
If we don’t encourage clean energy technologies—right now—we’re jeoparding our economy. The world is leaving us behind.
Researchers at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory are figuring out ways to improve catalytic converters—with some success.
