Unlike many car manufacturers, Mazda has been slow to move into the hybrid and electric vehicle market.
Self-optimising, highly efficient and inspired by bird flight: with the DualWingGenerator, Festo has developed an extraordinary technology platform that uses two pairs of opposing wings to generate power.
Festo, the company that studied the way birds fly through its 2011 SmartBird (pictured above), has created DualWingGenerator. It challenges the assumption that the windmill is the end-all, be-all of wind tech by replacing rotor blades with wings.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the US Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute have engineered a bacterium that could yield a new source of high-energy hydrocarbon fuel for rocketry and other aerospace uses.
In an effort to bring reliable electricity supplies to emerging regions and remote island communities, Panasonic has developed an expandable, portable, self-contained photovoltaic system.
Elon Musk and his cousin Lyndon Rive have previously warned utilities that they must adapt to growing pressures for renewables or face existential declines.
Last week we reported that while the West was busy alienating Russia in every diplomatic way possible...
Proof that good things don’t always come in nice packages can be found by taking the fast train from Beijing to Tianjin and then driving to the coast.
Looking like a wayward jet engine, this floating turbine and its brethren could someday travel to every remote corner of the globe
Since the first discovery of the massive Jubilee oilfield in Ghana by a start-up company, the West African playing field has begun to change, and so too have investor sentiments, disappointed most recently by the low fourth-quarter 2013 results of ma
The standoff between the U.S. and the EU on one hand, and Russia on the other, intensified pretty quickly late last week. The U.S. quickly slapped heavier sanctions on Russia after its annexation of Crimea, leading to a mutual escalation of retaliato

Bikes are an area of constant innovation, with their simplicity and popularity making them ripe for adaptation. But how much functionality can you squeeze into one bike?
Mobile phones have proven invaluable for connecting communities in developing countries where there is no wired telecoms infrastructure.
It's classic peak oil. It never went away, we've just been able to paper over it with free money for the past half decade. Seems like the majors realize the gig is up. They're selling unconventional assets in a big way, wanting to mitigate risk
Professors warn: if Electric Co. keeps giving Palestinians free electricity, it cannot cut off Israeli debtors, either.
As always, autos were the main focus of this year's Geneva Motor Show, but a smaller category of vehicle made its presence felt.
Wall Street Is Going Crazy For A Revolutionary Technology That Could Change The Energy Market As We Know It
A low cost, easy to build alternative to the large biomass fuel briquette press. Made completely from wood with hand tools the presses can produce briquettes at a rate of about 12 in 10 minutes.
It’s easy for a car that’s all sharp lines and flaring wings to catch the eye, but sometimes it’s the ones with the deceptively conservative styling that catch you by surprise.
Graphene, the two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms, may be the wonder material du jour, but ultrathin layers of other elements are also proving to be an exciting area of research.
While most of Canada seems content to let the rest of the world worry about designing exotic vehicles, some in Quebec see things slightly differently.
Unlike nuclear fission, which is used widely in nuclear power plants, nuclear fusion is still an experimental energy-producing technology.
Getting into space is an expensive business where every little bit of extra weight, which includes the fuel powering the spacecraft, can add thousands of dollars to the cost of a mission.
