1. An Australian company has been working on a system that uses underwater buoys to convert sea waves into zero-emission energy and desalinated water.

2. Scientists in China are producing solar panels that can produce energy from the last source you’d expect — rainwater.

3. A Japanese engineer has designed a new type of wind turbine that he believes would be able to harness power from typhoons.

4. Researchers at Binghamton University have come up with an interesting way to harness energy, using a resource we have far too much of — bacteria.

5. US scientists have developed a bionic leaf that can convert solar energy into liquid fuel.

the panel of solar systems attracted ultraviolet from the Rai of sun and made the atmosphere more heated and made skins cancer among the population into their country and now by futuristic design that could launching solar panel are all a systems my panel that extracted the light of the lower layer that shines to everyone to touch light onto their skins that didn't provided cancer called white light the lowest light from our layers could be caption on copper and hydrolab a water panel is more safe.

If you use quantum dots on glass windows the atmosphere inside the room will increase exponential rate which will make the air inside the room over heated.

What is it with these idiots who keep going on about how laser fusion will give us usable energy, it won't all the energy is released in one massive burst, the logistics of getting that onto the grid is untenable.

"All we're left with is water, that's the by product" yes & it's also a greenhouse "gas", imagine thousands of cars churning out large amounts of water vapor into the atmosphere.

I hate this talking-tone of voice they all pull in news programs. It sounds SO fake 😝 can't they just be authentic? Being themselves? Just use your own personal way of speaking!

Breakthrough in renewable energy - VPRO Sustainable energy: New energy innovations 10 months ago   46:11

It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy.

In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur.

A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.
