Primary energy sources take many forms, including nuclear energy, fossil energy—like oil, coal, and natural gas—and renewable sources like wind, solar and hydropower.

The Future of Energy

The Future of Energy

The energy industry is in the midst of a dramatic transformation as it reevaluates and reconfigures the way that it generates, stores, and distributes electrons.

Energy demand worldwide increases by 2% each year as our culture becomes more energy-dependent. Meanwhile, mounting concern over CO2 emissions, fossil fuel usage, and sustainability have

Great Things Come in Small Packages

The famous saying “smaller is better” is not necessarily true. A more accurate statement would be that “appropriate scale is better.” This brings us to the use of microturbines and their appropriate applications. Micro turbines are not actually tiny; they are still relatively large and powerful machines. But compared to

Renewable energy—and solar energy in par­ticular—has a problem. Because it is subject to the vagaries of sunshine and wind for power generation, it is often not available when it is needed most. For those nighttime hours when the sun is not available and cloudy days when sunlight is minimal, provisions

A Technology’s Transformation

A Technology’s Transformation

Fuel cell technology is elegant in its simplicity. An anode, a cathode, and an electrolyte allow positively charged hydrogen ions to move between the two sides of the cell, converting chemical energy into electricity. And the only bi-product is water.

Why, then, has this form of energy storage not been widely
