The UK's Ministry of Defence has ordered three laser and radio-frequency weapons demonstrators for the country's Armed Forces. Today's announcement promises £130 million (US$162 million) to test and evaluate the next generation of Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) with field trials expected to begin in 2023 on Royal Navy ships and British Army vehicles...

A couple of years ago we heard about the MOlecular Solar Thermal (MOST) system, in which solar energy is stored in a liquid medium, then later released as heat. Now, the technology has been applied to a clear film that could be applied to the inside of windows in energy-efficient buildings... Continue Reading Cooling/heating window film captures and releases solar energy Category: Materia
One of the biggest mysteries of the universe is why its expansion seems to be speeding up. Physicists have attributed it to a strange force called dark energy, but exactly how it works is largely speculative. Hypothetical "chameleon" particles could be behind dark energy, and physicists at CERN have been searching for these particles streaming from the Sun. Now, the team has reported the f
The average British motorist will spend over a staggering £56,000 on fuel in a lifetime, according to new figures from EDF Energy. With the average lifetime cost of charging an […] The post EDF Energy claims Brit motorists could save up to £41,00 by going electric appeared first on ShinyShiny.
Like a peloton of cyclists gaming the harsh realities of aerodynamics, birds flying together in formation can save substantial amounts of energy. But what's good for the goose isn't necessarily good for the gander, with scientists finding that for pairs of homing pigeons this approach actually costs them energy instead. So what could be the reasons for this common co-dependency? .. Continu
Fundamental Architects in the The Netherlands offers a rather unusual take on the high-rise with its Tower of the Sun concept. The eye-catching design is defined by a large circular hole at its center and would feature significant sustainable technology, drawing energy from the river it bridges. ..

renewables generated more electricity than coal-fired plants in the month of april and could continue to do so. The post america’s renewable energy usage surpasses coal for the first time ever appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
While many outdoor athletes like to add a liquid energy supplement to their water, doing so can cause their hydration pack or bottle to retain that booster's taste and color, and to require more frequent cleaning. Infuze offers a solution, in the form of two products that introduce liquid pep down the line from the main water supply – I recently got to try both of them out... Continue Read
South Australia has recently put the world's biggest lithium battery into operation – but perhaps it should've waited. A local startup says it's built the world's first working thermal battery, a device with a lifetime of at least 20 years that can store six times more energy than lithium-ion batteries per volume, for 60-80 percent of the price...
