How energy is created from salt water?

Water crisis due to climate change: More serious than previously thought

Electrical energy can be generated naturally when fresh water comes into contact with salt water through a membrane during what is known as osmosis. The concept is relatively simple: a semipermeable membrane separates two liquids with different salt concentrations, and salt ions pass through the membrane until both concentrations equilibrate. The innovation is based on … Read more

Electricity from nuclear fusion, How it is different from existing nuclear energy?

Researchers in California confirmed a breakthrough in nuclear fusion, where they recorded the first case of ignition on August 8, 2021, which has now been published.

The nuclear energy that is currently produced in nuclear power plants to produce electricity is based on nuclear fission, finally, science has achieved “a breakthrough” in the relentless quest to make the most of nuclear fusion. For the first time, researchers have created a nuclear fusion reaction that has produced more energy than was invested. Electricity … Read more

What are Solar Shingles and How they work and Compare?

Economical eco-friendly fabrication of high efficiency chalcopyrite solar cells

Solar shingles are small solar panels designed to resemble and replace traditional roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles, with energy-generating alternatives. Rather than being mounted on top of the roof, like most home solar panels, solar tiles are incorporated into the roof itself, an example of building-integrated photovoltaics. The advantage of solar tiles is mainly … Read more

Solar Canals in India, How efficient they are?

Solar Canals in India, How efficient they are?

Many defend solar energy as an alternative to consider for a sustainable future. But inevitably we run into a snag. Beyond the use that can be made of sunlight with the technology we currently use in solar panels, the big problem is that solar farms occupy kilometres of space.
