Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source
30 June 2015 10:42

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

Iberian Peninsula’s geothermal power can generate current electrical capacity five times over
11 June 2014 10:37

Researchers from the University of Valladolid (Spain) have estimated how much electricity could be obtained from the heat stored in the first ten kilometres beneath the Peninsula. Results indicate around 700 GW: five times that of all the electrical power installed at present. In Europe, geothermal systems could supply more than 6500 GW. Turkey, Iceland and France show the greatest potential.

Producing electricity on the Moon at night
18 December 2013 9:55

Scientists from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and other international collaborators have proposed a system of mirrors, processed lunar soil and a heat engine to provide energy to vehicles and crew during the lunar night. This would preclude the need for batteries and nuclear power sources such as those used by the Chinese rover that recently landed on the moon.

Solar panels can be used to provide heating and air conditioning
15 October 2013 11:00

The use of solar panels to produce toilets hot water is standard practice, but researchers at the Madrid Universities Carlos III and Politécnica suggest that they may also be used to provide large offices with heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Their proposal involves the incorporation of solar collectors into a gas-based cogeneration system with an absorption machine, which would reduce both energy expenditure and CO2 emissions.
