  • Researchers have found a way to more efficiently generate hydrogen from water — an important key to making clean energy more viable.

  • $950-million investment positions Canada for an innovation boom in high-growth sectors

  • In order to power entire communities with clean energy, such as solar and wind power, a reliable backup storage system is needed to provide energy when the sun isn't shining and the wind doesn't blow.

  • Searching for a power outlet may soon become a thing of the past. Instead, devices will receive electricity from a small metallic tab that, when attached to the body, is capable of generating electricity from bending a finger and other simple movements.

  • Engineer and inventor Clement Mokoenene was announced as South Africa's representative to stand a chance to win his share of $1 million in business funding, in his quest to be named South African most innovative social entrepreneur with his innovative Vehicle Energy Harvesting System.

  • With further development, these membranes have significant potential to perform the dual functions of removing salts from seawater and separating metal ions in a highly efficient and cost effective manner, offering a revolutionary new technological approach for the water and mining industries.

  • Sodium-ion batteries might soon provide a less expensive, viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries. The new technology also would help solve material sustainability issues by alleviating the mining of lithium - a diminishing resource.

  • Researchers have found a way to form two materials, each made of three layers of graphene. Each material's graphene is stacked differently and has unique electrical properties. Their work has implications for the development of novel electronic devices.

  • Researchers are one step closer to wirelessly powering the world using triboelectricity, a green energy source.

  • Research has shown that the motion of two-dimensional materials may be used as a source of clean, limitless energy.

  • The Dh2.5-billion project aims to treat 1.82-million tonnes of solid waste annually, with a total capacity to generate 185 MW of electricity, Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality, announced at a press conference.

  • Sensors that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person's breath.

  • Renewable energy has emerged as an increasingly competitive way to meet new power generation needs. This comprehensive cost report from the International Renewable Energy Agency highlights the latest trends for each of the main renewable power technologies, based on the latest cost and auction price data from projects around the world.

  • Pavegen has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Siemens to bring its technology to smart city projects around the world.

  • California could reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 - that's the prediction by a panel of clean-energy experts.
