Spanish windfarms produced more electricity than any other source in the last three months.
But the scientists also say the new material could also allow a new generation of super-thin hand-held devices like mobile phones that can be powered by sunlight. Professor Kostya Novoselov, one of the Nobel Laureates who discovered graphene, a type of carbon that forms sheets just one atom thick, said: “We have been trying to go beyond graphene by combining it with other one atom thick materials. “What we have been doing is putting different layers of these materials one on top of the other and what you get is a new type of material with a unique set of properties. “It is like a book – one page contains some information but together the book is so much more. “We have demonstrated that we can produce a very efficient photovoltaic device. The fact it is flexible will hopefully make it easier to use.
A "field" of cylinders built on the sea bed over a 1km by 1.5km area, and the height of a two-storey house, with a flow of just three knots, could generate enough power for around 100,000 homes. Just a few of the cylinders, stacked in a short ladder, could power an anchored ship or a lighthouse. Systems could be sited on river beds or suspended in the ocean.
The world’s first algae-powered building just opened in Hamburg! Dubbed the BIQ House , the project features a bio-adaptive algae facade and it will serve as a testing bed for sustainable energy production in urban areas and self-sufficient living buildings.

Yull Brown has been a controversial figure for years even after his death in 1998.
Oxyhydrogen is a mixture of hydrogen (H 2 ) and oxygen (O 2 ) gases. This gaseous mixture is used for torches for the processing of refractory materials and was the first [ 1 ] gaseous mixture used for welding .
Many of us will be firing up our grills this weekend for some well-deserved barbecue time.
Asphalt roads and car parks would be torn up and replaced with glass solar cell panels capable of generating enough power to support local communities, under the scheme. A US firm is currently working on a prototype panel that could be embedded into existing roads, having won a $100,000 grant from the US Department of Transportation. The panels would also be covered with a mosaic of small lights, which could be illuminated to provide road markings and warning messages to drivers.
WHY: Transportation is the master key to survival.
Murdoch University researchers have come up with a potential solution to one of sustainable energy’s greatest challenges: power storage for use in non-generation times .
