Organic solar cells reach record efficiency, benchmark for commercialization — ScienceDaily

In an advance that makes a more flexible, inexpensive type of solar cell commercially viable, University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated organic solar cells that can achieve 15 percent efficiency. This level of efficiency is in the range of many solar panels, or photovoltaics, currently on the market. “Organic photovoltaics can potentially cut way down on the total solar energy ...

There Are Some Big Advantages to Using Renewable Sources of Energy

Statistics show that the United States still derives 90% of its electricity from pollutants such as coal and nuclear power plants. Coal-burning power plants are the country's largest emitter of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that traps heat in the atmosphere causing global warming. Coal is also responsible for several other health risks such as asthma attack and other lung ...

Make Your Own Renewable Energy For Your Home to Cut Your Power Costs

You are probably aware of the shortage of non-renewable sources of energy around the world. Especially electricity (which is the most common form of usable energy for the mankid both for domestic and industrial use) is produced by non-renewable forms of energy sources such as fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas). This creates problems twofold as the non-renewable sources of ...

Why Renewable Wind Energy at Home is the Way to Go

Out of all of the renewable energy sources, power created from the breeze is probably the most rapidly expanding way to produce electricity. Renewable wind energy is the obvious choice to use in areas where there is a lot of blustery days on a regular basis. The stronger the breeze the more wind energy is created because as the turbine ...
