Capturing CO2 and storing it underground has been proposed as a potentially major player in mitigating global climate change by reducing CO2 emissions. Thermal power plants, being the largest point source of CO2 emissions, have thus become the primary target proposed for CO2 capture and storage...
New research by Yale University scientists helps pave the way for the next generation of solar cells, a renewable energy technology that directly converts solar energy into electricity. In a pair of recent papers, Yale engineers report a novel and cost-effective way to improve the efficiency of...
