A “Business” Model for Expanding Renewable Energy: The New Mexico Production Tax Credit

The State of New Mexico now has a total renewable generation capacity that is over 1 million kilowatts. This huge milestone for renewable energy in New Mexico would have not been realized so soon without the NM Renewable Energy Production Tax Credit (REPTC). The REPTC is not just a credit on taxes owed, it is a refundable credit and can […]

Low-grade waste heat regenerates ammonia battery

«The use of waste heat for power production would allow additional electricity generation without any added consumption of fossil fuels,» said Bruce E. Logan, Evan Pugh Professor and Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering. «Thermally regenerative batteries are a carbon-neutral way to store and convert waste heat into electricity with potentially lower cost than solid-state devices.»

Toward a low-cost ‘artificial leaf’ that produces clean hydrogen fuel

Peidong Yang, Bin Liu and colleagues note that harnessing sunlight to split water and harvest hydrogen is one of the most intriguing ways to achieve clean energy. Automakers have started introducing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, which only emit water when driven. But making hydrogen, which mostly comes from natural gas, requires electricity from conventional carbon dioxide-emitting power plants. Producing hydrogen […]

New electrolyte for construction of magnesium-sulfur batteries

In many electrical devices, lithium-ion and metal-hydride batteries are applied for energy storage. Scientists are also studying alternatives to these established battery systems in order to enhance the safety, cost efficiency, sustainability, and performance of future devices. It is their objective to replace lithium by other elements. For this purpose, all battery components have to be newly developed and understanding […]
