Better Turbines to Produce Electricity from Hurricanes

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

Better Electricity Storage Fosters Innovation

A research study, titled, “From fossil fuels to renewables: The role of electricity storage,” published in the European Economic Review reveals that better technologies for storage of electricity has filliped its production using both the traditional fossil fuels as well as the relatively new renewables. The paper also goes on to prove that improved storage technology can bolster the functioning of the overall electricity sector. It, however, doubts the belief that
