MIT, always on the cutting edge of renewable energy development, has announced one of its top physics professors is involved with a ground breaking fusion energy project in Moscow.
The Grand Prize winner of the annual MIT Clean Energy Prize will be announced this week, with finalists presenting technologies ranging from carbon-reducing concrete to high-efficiency electricity storage.
MIT is showcasing as part of a new research center a piece of paper coated with solar cells as just the latest in a series of innovations produced under a joint initiative with the private sector.
Joule Unlimited plans to take their patented genetically-engineered single-celled organisms–which use CO2 and sunlight to produce diesel, without the need for mechanical extraction–out of the lab and into the field.
A team of researchers at MIT has found a way to produce hydrogen out of water with solar energy (the way plants do) by using a harmless modified virus to assemble nanoscale components.
Since their conception, solar panels have been flat, dull square. MIT Professor Jeffrey Grossman looks to change that with his vision for three-dimensional, shaped, more efficient solar panels.
A team of researchers from MIT has produced a study that suggests lithium-air batteries maybe to be up to three times lighter in the future.
Researchers from the University of Göttingen and MIT recently discovered the role random thermal fluctuations may play in creating a greener future for PCs.
The Smart Cities Group at MIT has developed the Roboscooter, the functional equivalent of a 50cc gas-powered scooter that runs on electricity and folds up small for parking and storage.
The new Copenhagen wheel developed by MIT turns any bike into a hybrid e-bike, storing power during braking and releasing it when you need a little help–while providing info on weather, traffic and more through your handlebar-mounted iPhone.
