Worldwide water shortage by 2040
Two new reports that focus on the global electricity water nexus have just been published. Three years of research show that by the year 2040 there will not be enough water in the world to quench the thirst of the world population and keep the current energy and power solutions going if we continue doing what we are doing today. View News Article (2014-07-29)


New Approach to Form Non-Equilibrium Structures
Although most natural and synthetic processes prefer to settle into equilibrium-a state of unchanging balance without potential or energy-it is within the realm of non-equilibrium conditions where new possibilities lie. View News Article (2014-07-25)
