Euopean clean energy company, Acta, has announced their plans for creating a network of solar-powered hydrogen fueling stations throughout Italy. The new pumps will work by harnessing solar energy to produce hydrogen fuel from water through the process of electrolysis.

Sailing ships harvesting ocean wind energy could meet energy needs of entire planet

May 28, 2010 / No Comments

With dwindling fossil fuel resources we are working with solar, wind and tidal alternatives to generate power. Just a few days back we talked about an underwater kite feeding on tidal energy to generate power. Taking a step forward, researchers at the University of California are working upon sailing ships that could harvest energy from the ocean far away from ...

Artificial Leaf to Generate Energy Without Harmful Emissions

March 26, 2010 / 1 Comment

Photosynthesis by plants is a simple, green way to generate loads of energy, and giving out precious oxygen in the process. Scientists have been working to create a system that would generate energy like plant leaves do, without any ill-effects on the environment. Precious little success has been achieved so for, and the Artificial Inorganic Leaf (AIL) is a step ...

Scientists Find Clean Hydrogen Fuel in Piezo Crystals and Noise

March 18, 2010 / No Comments

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison claim to have found clean hydrogen fuel in the unholy mix of zinc oxide crystals, water and noise pollution. Researchers say that the process will not require any catalyst like oil, and will manage to be fairly efficient.
