More Efficient Fuel Cells under Development by Engineers

Solar power and other sources of renewable energy can help combat global warming but they have a draw­back: they don’t produce energy as predictably as generating plants powered by oil, coal, or natural gas. Solar panels only produce electricity when the sun is shining, and wind turbines are only productive when the wind is brisk. […]

Sandia and Atlas-Copco Secoroc Advance to Phase 2 in Their Geothermal Energy Project

In 2012, the partnership between Sandia and Atlas-Copco Secoroc was awarded a $3.4M DOE grant to develop a down-the-hole (DTH) hammer capable of low-cost, high-production drilling in the extreme heat of deep geothermal wells. The overall DOE goal is to increase the feasibility of geothermal energy production by lowering the cost and financial risk associated […]
