Can you imagine a world where half of the required electricity is generated from the offshore wind farms? Now imagine a farm in a coastal area facing a powerful hurricane and its probable effects on farms? It requires planning to combat these situations. Thus, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at UMass Amherst, Sanjay R. Arwade, is developing a guard for these situations. The occurrence of this offshore wind
Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have come up with a way to provide clean hydrogen energy. Researchers claim that they are the first hydrogen sensors that fulfill the performance demands for hydrogen powered automobiles. Nature Material recently published the findings. . The new devices comprises an optical nano sensor encapsulated in plastic. The hydrogen sensor functions on Plasmon phenomenon, which is an optical process. Plasmon takes place when
Cellular technology has rapidly evolved from 2G network to a lightning fast 5G network. It has download speeds 10 to 100 times faster than the 4G network. Additionally, it delivers 1000 times the data delivered by the current networks. 5G network is yet to enter the mainstream market as there are hardly any 5G base stations. However, Shanghai claims to be the first district with both 5G network coverage and
With the advent of smart devices and smart textiles has emerged the concept of smart home technology. It allows homeowners to monitor and control appliances and systems such as lighting on a networked device. Further, the smart home ecosystem is energy efficient and offers owners a sense of security and comfort. Although security and comfort take precedence over everything, we cannot deny the need for a great design and aesthetics.
Lithium-air batteries run on ambient oxygen. It is an eco-friendly and sustainable way to store energy. Hence, they are a good source of power for electric vehicles, houses, and industries of the future. Present lithium-ion battery will not be able to handle the coming decades’ huge demand for energy. Moreover, by 2050, electricity will make up 50% of the world’s energy mix, while today that rate is 18%. However, installed
