The idea of an “artificial leaf” sounds simple enough: Take a small, cheap, light-collecting device the size of a typical leaf, dunk it in a quart of water, and use solar energy to generate enough hydrogen gas for powering a small fuel cell. Scaled up, these solar-derived fuel cells would…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/soalr/energy-innovation-artificial-leaf-could-blow-up-fuel-cell-market-energy-storage-solution/ clean energy innovation, Cleantech, Efficiency, Electricity, Hydrogen – Fuel Cells, National Institute of Standards and Technology, News, NIST, photo electro chemical (PEC), photoelectrochemical, photovoltaic cell, Solar Power, Storage, Water

The Limits of Renewable Energy: A Call for Research and Development losing the race against global warming
We’re losing the race against global warming. Worldwide coal production increased about eight times faster than solar- and wind-power generation last year. China added more new coal plants in 2011 than are running in Texas and Ohio, even as it leads the world in wind-power capacity….http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/international-news/the-limits-of-renewable-energy-a-call-for-research-and-development-losing-the-race-against-global-warming/
