Engineers Create New Material Inspired by Natural Materials

MIT engineers have created a new material that was inspired by natural materials that feature the advantages of live cells and their ability to respond to their environment. This new material was demonstrated using bacterial cells that were coaxed to produce biofilms that can combine with nonliving materials.

Funding Awarded by NY Governor for Battery and Energy Storage Technology

$1.4 million in funding has been awarded by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to six companies that are advancing battery and energy storage technology. The funding will help develop prototypes that prove the ability of advanced energy storage systems.

Breakthrough in Charging Batteries Through Movements

A team of researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a new technology that generates power every time an electronic device is touched or rubbed. The team created a new material called triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) that harnesses static electricity.

New Device Recommended to Capture Energy to Outer Space

A team of physicists at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) are proposing a device that would capture and harvest energy from the Earth’s infrared emissions to outer space. The device would be similar to a photovoltaic solar panel, but would generate electric power by releasing infrared light instead of capturing visible light.
