The infamous Nevada Test Site has long been known as a proving ground for nuclear weapons.
The heat that pavement gives off is something everyone is familiar with. Researchers at the University of Rhode Island are exploring how this radiant heat energy can be used to melt ice, power streetlights, illuminate signs, heat buildings and generally make our lives better.
MIT scientists are developing an alternative to photovoltaic and solar-thermal systems for capturing the sun's energy.
A North Carolina State University-led team has created 'artificial leaves – water-gel-based solar devices which can act like solar cells to generate electricity.
One disadvantage of solar cells is that they take up a lot of room - and not every building has enough space.
