The Future Needs Better Batteries – storing renewable energy is the next hurdle

Using power efficiently isn’t all about just using renewable sources, we also need better ways to store that power, on a large scale. A future that relies on renewable energy is a future that calls for better power storage to utilize it and right now, we’re mostly relying on decades old technology.

New Termovoltaics Breakthrough – may lead to drone batteries that last for days

A new breakthrough will give drones the ability to stay in the air for longer amounts of time, improving their efficiency and range of uses. Thermovoltaics are a light weight energy source but up until now haven’t been able to put out the type of power to make them greatly useful. A new breakthrough changes that.

Turn Heat Into Light – new research on a process to reclaim more lost energy

We lose a lot of energy through heat in our devices. If a device puts out heat, regardless of what that device is doing, that’s energy lost. Researchers want to capture that and a new development utilizing carbon nanotubes may make that that dream into a reality.

AI and Climate Change – in the future, AI will help us battle climate change

Robots probably don’t have a lot to fear when it comes to climate change. I think that was a plot point in the Matrix. Anyway, that doesn’t mean they can’t help us fight it today. Innovative use of AI may prove to be key in helping humanity push back against the climate crisis.

Plastic Eating Bacteria – microorganisms in the fight against pollution

Plastic waste is a huge problem because we rely on the material for many, many things. Not just grocery bags and packaging either. Medical equipment, tech devices, inexpensive textiles, etc. The list is really endless. One day we may be able to dispose of plastic the same way we do food waste, with bacteria. Plastic eating bacteria isn’t here yet but it’s looking better and better for our future.

What To Do With Oil Tankers – new plans seek to turn them into power generators

So when we quit using fossil fuels, what’s going to happen to oil tankers? Video games and movies mostly stick with the theory that we’ll hollow them out and use them as post-apocalyptic housing. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Instead, they may have a future as giant, floating power farms that generate energy from waves.

Modern Meadow – this company is making fabric from micro organisms

Textiles, specifically those made from animals or animal fibers in this case have a heavy toll on the environment. Cultivating these materials takes up a good deal of space and leads to a lot of manufacturing waste. Although the practice can be done with less waste on small scales, that’s not industry standard. Modern Meadow is the company that is taking on the textile industry by creating animal free products.

Lightyear One – the solar powered electric car

Electric cars are considered by many to be one of the key components in battling climate change. Getting them on the road, getting emission causing cars off the road, can only help. One of the biggest issues is the range of these cars. After all, leave an urban area and good look finding somewhere to change up that battery. Lightyear One is a solar car that hopes to bridge that gap.
