Stanford Designs Underwater Solar Cells That Convert Greenhouse Gases Into Fuel

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Imagine a process where underwater solar cells could one day play a key role in fighting climate change. Stanford engineers did just that. They have provided design principles to build energy efficient, corrosion-protected solar cells. The impacts of this research are far-reaching for the solar industry and the battle against climate […]

Short Climate Change Program Sparks Viewers

We Americans could use “a population shift in knowledge and positive engagement in the issue of climate change,” as environmental scientist  and media guru Anthony Leiserowitz and colleagues have characterized it. While people and governments of other nations, believing their survival is at stake, have rushed to codify mitigation and adaptation measures—only 15% of the US […]

Solar Cooling Panels Could Cut Air Conditioning Use Considerably

Editor’s Note: Thought solar panels were just useful for creating electricity or heat for hot water? Apparently not. Stanford researchers have found a way to create “solar cooling panels” or “radiative cooling panels” that shoot heat away from the building. According to the researchers, just covering 10% of a roof covered by these solar cooling […]

New York's Potential Renewable Energy Future Mapped Out By New Study

New York state could be powered entirely by renewable energy within the near future, a new study from Stanford University has found. Wind, solar, and water power could provide all of the energy used by the electric grid, industry, all forms of transportation, and heating/cooling. The research found that such a switchover would provide substantial […]

Google’s Climate Change Leader Going to Stanford, to Head New Stanford Energy School

As Director of Climate Change Initiatives for Google over the past three years, Dan Reicher has been an inexhaustible, high-profile symbol of Google’s interest in energy policy: participating in congressional hearings, and speaking at energy policy events. But starting today, he’ll no longer lead the search engine giant’s climate change initiatives, and has jumped ship […]
