    An effective and low-cost solution for storing solar energy?

    How can we store solar energy for period when the sun doesn't shine? One solution is to convert it into hydrogen through water electrolysis. The idea is to use the electrical current produced by a solar panel to 'split' water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. Clean...

    Tenfold jump in green tech needed to meet global emissions targets

    I am not all that worried about global warming to the same degree as consuming resources and pollution. However this should be a wake up call to all the politicians and bureaucrats attending these conferences. Lots of talk , little follow up. Green innovations must be...
