Adaptable Smart Window Coating Could Cool or Heat a Home, Save Energy
The thermal energy from the sun's infrared rays is absorbed by the glass and re-emitted as heat - either used to warm the room using transparent electrical heaters in the glass substrate or reflected away to cool the room.

Bridge Energy to be Harvested in Pioneering Research Project
Unused energy trapped within bridges is to be harvested in a major new international project. Traffic and wind regularly cause low frequency vibrations to ripple through bridge building materials such as steel and concrete. This energy would normally travel away from its source before dissipating but academics have recognised an opportunity. They intend to capture and recycle this untapped source by using the principles of physics.

Tomorrow's Tech Using Ink-Jet Printed Graphene
Researchers have cracked the conundrum of how to use inks to 3D-print novel electronic devices with useful properties, such as an ability to convert light into electricity. The study shows that it is possible to jet inks, containing tiny flakes of 2D materials such as graphene, to build up and mesh together the different layers of these complex, customised structures.
