As Tesla’s Supercharger network expands and Model S sales continue to grow, so too does the company’s need to find a more economical battery solution.
Elon Musk introduces the Tesla Supercharger and the first part of a national network which will allow the Model S electric car to travel long distances with ultra fast charging.
PA official says talk of massive electricity debt is not a threat, claims PA was offered country status and reduced rates by Electric Corporation.
Georgia Power, which is part of Southern Company, owns nearly half the plant. Oglethorpe Power Corporation (OPC) has a 30 percent share, the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia owns 22.7 percent, and the City of Dalton, Georgia owns just over 1 p
The harsh U.S. winter has turned natural gas into the second-best performing commodity year-to-date.
Elon Musk-chaired SolarCity shares are sliding after hours. The company failed to report full earnings on time due to new accounting delays from new acquisitions and changing overhead costs.
Exclusive interview with EIA chief where we discuss the shale boom, the energy future of the US, natural gas, energy technology and much more.
The threat of a breakdown of our national power infrastructure has been a growing concern for the last decade.
ARPA-E is funding several projects that use liquid battery electrodes to cut costs and increase energy density.
Brammo has updated its Empulse and Empulse R for 2014 with a 4.5 kg weight reduction, new instruments and a set of continuous-compound Continental SportAttack2 tires.
After three years of construction, the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) is now operational.
If electric cars become popular quickly, the demand for charging them is likely to exceed supply. Now mathematicians have worked out how electricity companies can distribute their power fairly to car owners. But the price–accurate information about d
He added that several important milestones were achieved in this project: despite some difficulties, the project was able to drill down into the molten magma and control it; it was possible to set steel casing in the bottom of the hole; allowing the
Solar ovens are a remarkable low-tech and low-impact accessory for off-grid cooking, and can make sense even if you have access to plenty of cheap electricity, as long as you have abundant sunshine.
NASA scientists found link between mysterious ‘ribbon’ of energy particles at edge of solar system and the interstellar magnetic field.
I have had some beautiful downloads recently, and there’s one I want to share with you that may provide you with clarification about the LumenOctave and about how to utilize the power of it properly.
If you're following the race among alternative-fuel vehicles to dethrone today's king of the road, the internal combustion engine vehicle, you know there are pluses and minuses associated with each type of vehicle.
Physicists had to compress the fuel to twice the density of the core of the sun.
China is projected to install 12,000 megawatts of solar power in 2014, giving it the "gold medal" in the figurative 2014 Solar Olympics, according to GTM Research.
In a first for laser-driven fusion, scientists at a US lab say they have reached a key milestone called fuel gain: they are producing more energy than the fuel absorbed to start the reaction.
A milestone has been reached in the 60-year struggle to harness the nuclear reactions that power the Sun in an experiment that could lead to a way of producing an unlimited source of clean and sustainable energy in the form of nuclear fusion.
The U.S. brought a trade complaint against India Monday over a solar energy program it says discriminates against American manufacturers, adding another wrinkle to a bilateral relationship strained by the recent arrest and strip-search of an Indian d
In order to get electronics out of their rigid casings and integrated into flexible materials like textiles or even stretchable biomedical devices that interface directly with organs such as the skin.....
Damage to power station in shooting last year prompts worries over terrorism.
I am a literary artist. I have written some philosophy and some satire. I wrote The Terraist Letters, a satire that contrasts the promotion of nuclear experimentation with the prohibition of marijuana/hemp cultivation.
is based on an organic molecule—called a quinone—that’s found in plants such as rhubarb and can be cheaply synthesized from crude oil. The molecules could reduce, by two-thirds, the cost of energy storage materials in a type of battery called a flow
Duke’s metamaterial superlens could finally allow for long-range wireless charging.....
As the year went on, the eulogies came in fast and furious. “Today, it is probably safe to say we have slayed ‘peak oil’ once and for all, thanks to the combination of new shale oil and gas production techniques,” declared Rob Wile, an energy and eco
The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle toward approval Friday, a serious blow to environmentalists' hopes that President Barack Obama will block the controversial project running more than 1,000 miles from Canada through the
I'm not sure if this tech has been posted here so because of all the cold weather I thought I would. It is basically a "free energy" device.
