Transforming Air Into Pure Drinking Water Is Finally Possible, Here’s How

Deserts are not particularly welcoming environments, and yet at least hundred million people live in desert regions around the world, according to the UN. They have to make due with less than 25 cm of rainfall each year, and for many, even that miniscule water supply is under threat as climate change is making dry […]

Record solar hydrogen production with concentrated sunlight

what we have here is a solar parabolic concentrator which concentrates the sunlight by a factor of thousand it follows the sun throughout the day and we harness this concentrated energy in our device which we place at the focus part of the dish and we use this energy to split water and produce hydrogen […]

Physical Science : Going Green With Renewable Energy

Hi, I’m Steve Jones, and I’m going to tell you how to go green with renewable energy. Now, we know that at the moment we use these fossil fuels; oil, gas, coal, and nuclear fuel. We use them all to generate electricity for our houses, we use oil in our cars, petrol comes from oil. […]

Is This New Super Carbon Better Than Graphene?

Alaska: America’s Renewable State? (ENERGY QUEST USA)

Narrator: Sometimes when Americans hear energy, the next word that comes to mind is crisis. It really doesn’t have to be that way. Shirley Jackson, former head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and now president of one of America’s leading technical universities, thinks the United States is actually well-placed. Well, the U.S. is lucky because […]
