  • Nanotech / Biomimetics / Solar >
    Plant-Mimicking Solar Cells Can Self-Assemble - Scientists at MIT have created a breakthrough solution to one of the biggest problems facing solar cells by mimicking the world's best harvesters of solar energy: plants. Over time, sunlight breaks down the materials in solar cells, leading to a gradual degradation of devices aiming to harvest the energy in that light. Plants don't have this problem. (EcoGeek; Sept. 7, 2010)
  • Vibrations / Solid State >
    Cell Phones Powered by Conversations - Just as speakers transform electric signals into sound, the opposite process -- of turning sound into a source of electrical power -- is possible, according to Scientists from Korea who have turned the main ingredient of calamine lotion into a tiny material that converts sound waves into electricity. Other noise sources such as traffic could also be harnesses for the power grid. (Discovery; Sept. 13, 2010)

  • Solar > PV >
    New Stick-on Solar Panels Make Installations a Snap - Global Solar unveiled a new type of flexible solar module that builders can stick directly on the roof, rather than constructing racks to hold heavy glass-covered cells. The modules won’t cost less than traditional arrays, at least initially, but they make it easier to include solar power at the time of construction and, without the racks, can cover a greater portion of the roof and provide more power.
