High tunnels found effective for finishing cold-tolerant annuals
Energy costs account for one of the largest expenses in commercial greenhouse production of annual bedding plants.  View News Article (2014-12-09)


New Technique Could Harvest More of the Sun's Energy
As solar panels become less expensive and capable of generating more power, solar energy is becoming a more commercially viable alternative source of electricity. However, the photovoltaic cells now used to turn sunlight into electricity can only absorb and use a small fraction of that light, and that means a significant amount of solar energy goes untapped. View News Article (2014-12-09)


In world first -- UNSW researchers convert sunlight to electricity with over 40 percent efficiency
UNSW Australia's solar researchers have converted over 40% of the sunlight hitting a solar system into electricity, the highest efficiency ever reported. View News Article (2014-12-08)


Toward a low-cost 'artificial leaf' that produces clean hydrogen fuel
For years, scientists have been pursuing "artificial leaf" technology, a green approach to making hydrogen fuel that copies plants' ability to convert sunlight into a form of energy they can use.  View News Article (2014-12-04)


Atmospheric carbon dioxide used for energy storage products
Chemists and engineers at Oregon State University have discovered a fascinating new way to take some of the atmospheric carbon dioxide that's causing the greenhouse effect and use it to make an advanced, high-value material for use in energy storage products. View News Article (2014-12-03)


Missing ingredient in energy-efficient buildings: People
More than one-third of new commercial building space includes energy-saving features, but without training or an operator's manual many occupants are in the dark about how to use them. View News Article (2014-12-03)


Matched 'hybrid' systems may hold key to wider use of renewable energy
The use of renewable energy in the United States could take a significant leap forward with improved storage technologies or more efforts to "match" different forms of alternative energy systems that provide an overall more steady flow of electricity, researchers say in a new report. View News Article (2014-12-01)


Physicists suggest new way to detect dark matter
