Google has acquired a wind power company that uses autonomous flying drones, a move that could change what the search giant is known for.
A new scientific breakthrough could mean houseplant-powered computers, and refrigerators that run on solar energy collected from trees.
Is this the technology that's going to replace bladed wind turbines?
Not only is the little European nation leading the pack with green and renewable energy, it's running away with the prize.
The pharmacy chain has just announced plans to build the first retail store in the US powered entirely by onsite energy sources.
Google may be taking over the world, but at least it's going to take good care of us, with a new $200 million investment in a Texas wind farm.
On Friday, U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Stephen Chu announced the creation of a research center focusing on battery and energy storage technology. The ambitious project will attempt to deliver technologies that are five times as powerful as and five times cheaper than today's technologies.
We know that there's more than enough wind energy out there to power our entire civilization, but conventional wind turbines don't do that great of a job of harnessing it. They're expensive and inefficient, and we're looking for better technologies, one of which is a super efficient wind turbine that doesn't need blades.
Solar power for residential homes is still too expensive for most Americans. The problem isn't the cost of the power, but rather the hardware. Technological advances are only bringing costs down so much.
Plans are underway to build a massive new type of power generator in the southwestern corner of Arizona. Using evaporative cooling to create wind, it will deliver enough power for a medium to large-sized city with practically no effect on the environment.
