Government Cabinet Seeks Reform Of Energy Subsidy Law
Taller wind turbines and larger blades could lead the Southeast, and North Carolina, to grow its renewable wind energy sector. In 2000, wind turbines reached 80 meters with blades rotating, and by 2012, rotating blades reached heights of 130 meters. Allowing the height to grow beyond 180 meters could be a game changer. A new report from the U.S. Department of Energy shows that manufacturing larger wind turbines would address “transportation ...

Dow Falls As Technology Sector Stocks Tumble
sciencehabit writes: "Fossil fuels power modern society by generating heat, but much of that heat is wasted. Researchers have tried to reclaim some of it with semiconductor devices called thermoelectrics, which convert the heat into power. But they remain too inefficient and expensive to be useful beyond a handful of niche applications. Now, scientists in Illinois report that they have used a cheap, well-known material to create the most heat-hungr ...
