Faster Acceleration In EVs With New Supercapacitor Improvement? New Research From UC Riverside Tantalizes

Could electric vehicles (EVs) soon get a big boost to their acceleration thanks to new, improved supercapacitors? The researchers behind an interesting new development in the field think so — thanks to the development of a novel nanometer scale ruthenium oxide anchored nanocarbon graphene foam architecture that improves the performance … [continued]

Harnessing Volcanoes Themselves for Energy?

A derailed 2009 project in search of improved geothermal resources has been found to have uncovered a new way to harness energy from volcanic magma itself, according to a paper just published at Geology: Origin of a rhyolite that intruded a geothermal well while drilling at the Krafla volcano, Iceland by Wilfred Elders, a professor emeritus of geology in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of California, Riverside.
