By turning the mattress-shaped batteries in Tesla’s electric car into upright pillars so they can be used to power homes, businesses and even utilities, Elon Musk is trying to pave the way to a better energy future.
Based on printing technologies, VTT Technical Centre of Finland has developed and utilized a mass production method allowing the manufacturing of decorative, organic solar panels. Freedom of design increases the range of panel applications on the surfaces of interior and exterior building spaces.
German car companies, BMW and Volkswagen are teaming up with ChargePoint to install a network of fast-charging stations for electric cars in the U.S.
Electric bus in NYC Electric cars have come a long way and they continue to wrestle more market share from their fossil-fueled counterparts, but electric cars can only take us so far. Electric buses, on the other hand, are a lot more exciting and becoming more commonplace.
Illustration of reflective panel on building A new ultrathin multilayered material can cool buildings without air conditioning by radiating warmth from inside the buildings into space while also reflecting sunlight to reduce incoming heat. Fan Lab Stanford engineers have invented a material designed to help cool buildings. The material reflects incoming sunlight, and it sends […]
