The NSW Government has funded Australia's first duel-fuel-capable power plant to the tune of AU$83 million (US$64 million). The Tallawarra B project will initially run on natural gas, but will be gradually upgraded to burn green hydrogen over coming decades.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Climate Crisis, Gas, Energy, Australia
While ever-improving battery technology draws a lot of the attention when it comes to improving the range of electric vehicles, these machines feature many moving parts that play a role in their overall performance. By reimagining the way power inverters relay the current from the battery to the electric motor, scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration have conju
We've already heard about renewable energy systems that use aerial kites to generate electricity via the wind. Well, the Manta system is kind of similar, although it uses an underwater kite that "flies" in tidal or river currents.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Tidal Energy, Kite Power
Nintendo Power founding editors Gail Tilden and Howard Phillips share their memories of launching (for better or worse) one of the most influential video game periodicals in this classic 2012 feature. ...
It’s been nearly 10 years since I first visited the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. It was a great experience for me. I could finally see the place I’d previously only known from books and TV and the tart taste of the Lugol’s iodine I had to drink a few days after the disaster. After many visits to the plant, I was finally even allowed to enter the damaged Reactor 4 and see the notorious control r
Open-fire cooking you can carry anywhere, the new Alpha Bonfire from Japanese startup The Brand Labo collapses flat into a smartphone-sized package small enough to drop in a pocket. It carries easily by foot, luggage or light vehicle, building into a mini fire pit and grill you can use wherever the journey takes you. The compact kit even brings its own tiny utensils for preparing and eating the f

For nearly a century, scientists have been tantalized by the prospect of attaining an inexhaustible source of energy through nuclear fusion. Unfortunately, engineering a controlled environment where atomic nuclei can continuously fuse under extreme pressure and temperature to produce energy that we can capture is very difficult, but that doesn't mean exciting advances aren't being made. Here we t
