Energy Efficiency vs. Renewable Energies : Strategic Decision Making [Part 1]

The priority of policy making does not include energy efficiency.People think energy efficiency as desirable but no urgent action to it.Various disproportions exists within the realm of energy efficiency like it’s cost and these energy efficient devices can be implemented only with the implementation of Smart Grid first.Energy efficient devices are going to play a critical role with increase in energy prices.

Metal particle generates new hope for hydrogen energy

Led by Associate Professor Greg Metha, Head of Chemistry, the researchers are exploring how the metal nanoparticles act as highly efficient catalysts in using solar radiation to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. “Efficient and direct production of hydrogen from solar radiation provides a renewable energy source that is the pinnacle of clean energy,” said Associate Professor Greg Metha. “We believe this work will contribute significantly to the global effort to convert solar energy into portable chemical energy.”

Inkjet printing could change the face of solar energy industry

Inkjet printers, a low-cost technology that in recent decades has revolutionized home and small office printing, may soon offer similar benefits for the future of solar energy. Engineers at Oregon State University have discovered a way for the first time to create successful “CIGS” solar devices with inkjet printing, in work that reduces raw material waste by 90 percent and will significantly lower the cost of producing solar energy cells with some very promising compounds.
