Massive geothermal potential found offshore, where the Earth splits

A potentially game-changing and largely unexplored energy jackpot lies beneath the ocean floor. Unique conditions under the sea bed promise cheaper and more accessible geothermal power.

Icelandic scientists pave way for geothermal energy by drilling into volcanoes

Icelandic scientists are embarking on a groundbreaking project to tap into a volcano's magma chamber for an abundant source of super-hot geothermal energy. 

Green Hydrogen from Seawater

An international team researched a method to split natural seawater into oxygen and hydrogen with nearly 100 % efficiency, to produce green hydrogen by electrolysis.

Scientists Just Made Hydrogen Fuel With Nothing But Air and Solar Power

The team showed that the device could run efficiently for 12 consecutive days and produced hydrogen with 99 percent purity.

World's largest tidal turbine

A Scottish engineering firm will be receiving $9.64 million for its groundbreaking tidal turbine that will supply the UK with 100 gigawatts of clean energy.

First power flows from world's mightiest tidal turbine

Orbital Marine Power O2 tidal turbine will be able to single-handedly generate enough clean-power to supply 2,000 UK homes, offsetting 2,200 tonnes of CO2 a year.

El Salvador plans bitcoin mining using volcano

El Salvador announced plans on accepting cryptocurrency as legal tender and calls for the use of geothermal energy for bitcoin mining in the country.

Tasmanian island to be powered by wave energy

King Island residents in Tasmania will soon enjoy renewable energy harnessed from wave swells. Currently, about two-thirds of the island’s energy needs are covered by wind and solar power.

UK Opens its First Geothermal Plant

Set to power homes in Gloucestershire and beyond, a partnership between Ecotricity, and Geothermal Engineering Limited will see the production and sale of geothermal energy in the UK for the first time.

Renewable Hydrogen Coalition launched

The new coalition will support and accelerate the uptake of renewable hydrogen solutions in Europe. The goal is to produce 10 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen by 2030 in the EU.

Rain may soon be an effective source of energy

Researchers have developed a generator that uses a field-effect transistor-style structure to instantly produce a surprisingly high voltage from water drops - a single drop can muster 140V, or enough power to briefly light up 100 small LED bulbs.

Renewable energy reached 1/3 of global power capacity

According to statistics, hydropower accounts for the largest share with an installed capacity of 1,172 GW, wind and solar energy account for most of the remainder with capacities of 564 GW and 480 GW respectively.

Jet fuels made from plants could be competitive with fossil fuels

It's challenging to electrify aviation using batteries or fuel cells in part because of the weight restrictions on aircraft, so liquid biofuels have the potential to play a big role in greenhouse gas emissions reductions.

The Mad Science Plan to Power the World With Poop

Plants all over the developed world take advantage of this salvageable energy to subsidize their operations. One UK-based treatment plant, for example, gets 50 percent of its power using poop.

Etihad flies world's first flight using UAE-made 'green fuel'

Etihad Airways has become the world's first airline to fly a commercial flight using locally produced sustainable fuel derived from plants grown in saltwater.
