Energy from seawater

Salt is power. It might sound like alchemy, but the energy in places where salty ocean water and freshwater mingle could provide a massive source of renewable power. Researchers have developed an affordable, durable technology that could harness this so-called blue energy.

More efficient direct air capture of CO2 for regenerative fuels

Electric cars powered by green electricity or renewable hydrogen will make tomorrow's transportation more climate-friendly. Aircraft and ships, however, are sure to run on hydrocarbon fuels for some time yet.

Making solar cells can be like buttering bread

Formamidinium lead iodide is a very good material for photovoltaic cells, but getting the correct and stable crystal structure is a challenge. The techniques developed so far have produced rather poor results. However, scientists have now cracked it - using a blade and a dipping solution.

Storage of solar energy and wind power in metal powder

Hydrogen researchers are involved in a large European project on hydrogen storage. The goal is to develop a novel prototype tank that will store at least 50 kilograms of hydrogen in a minimum space. The European Union is funding the project with €2 million in the frame of the "Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking - FCH JU". Some €150,000 are earmarked for the Helmholtz researchers.

Successful second round of experiments with Wendelstein 7-X

The goal of fusion research is to develop a climate- and environment-friendly power station. Like the sun, it is to derive energy from the fusion of atomic nuclei. Since the fusion fire only ignites at temperatures of over 100 million degrees, the fuel - a low-density hydrogen plasma - must not come into contact with cold vessel walls. Held by magnetic fields, it floats in an almost contact-free manner in the interior of a vacuum chamber.

Electricity Generation Turns to the Ocean

It is a matter of survival now. Neglect of global warming is causing rising sea levels that will soon flood an increasingly large number of cities, that and the melting icecaps making more of the fresh water in the world salty, so desalination is a market doubling every ten years.

Wave energy technology for the Canary Islands

The project will begin with a pilot 5 MW installation to provide energy for a desalination plant, but could expand to address multiple energy needs, from automobile recharging stations to supplying the grid.

The British milkman is going electric

What do the British milkman and the German mail carrier have in common? Answer: Both are an institution in their respective countries, and both travel by StreetScooter. The U.K. home delivery business Milk & More has now placed an initial order for 200 of these electric vehicles, which are produced by the Deutsche Post subsidiary StreetScooter and will be put to use in the UK immediately.

Tiny injectable sensor for long term alcohol monitoring

Engineers have developed a miniature, ultra-low power injectable biosensor that could be used for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is small enough to be implanted in the body just beneath the surface of the skin and is powered wirelessly by a wearable device, such as a smartwatch or patch.
