New ways to produce and store solar energy

The quest to find new ways to harness solar power has taken a step forward after researchers successfully mimicked photosynthesis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. Photosynthesis is the process plants use to convert sunlight into energy. Oxygen is produced as by-product of photosynthesis when the water absorbed by plants is ‘split’. It is Read more about New ways to produce and store solar energy[…]

Researchers uncover secret of nanomaterial that makes harvesting sunlight easier

Using sunlight to drive chemical reactions, such as artificial photosynthesis, could soon become much more efficient thanks to nanomaterials. This is the conclusion of a study published led by researchers in the Department of Physics at Imperial College London, which could ultimately help improve solar energy technologies and be used for new applications, such as Read more about Researchers uncover secret of nanomaterial that makes harvesting sunlight easier[…]
