The Berkeley Lab says tightening U.S. homes to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code standard is achievable, and would save $33 billion annually.
More or less xylan? Biofuels researchers find that engineering plants in either direction could be beneficial.
Two new initiatives at Berkeley Lab could have long-range effects on how green building engineers evaluate the performance of tomorrow’s most environmentally friendly materials.
A fermentation process used in World War I to make cordite for bullets and artillery shells has been recruited to the task of turning stuff that grows cheaply into fuel.
The U.S. breaks ground on a new solar research center that will help in the search for ways to turn sunlight, water and carbon into hugely efficient transportation fuels
In California, government scientists and a Palo Alto startup called AutoGrid Systems are coding a path toward improved energy delivery in real time.
Government scientists say they have uncovered a way to produce electricity by harnessing the power from simple every day tasks, such as walking or shutting a door.
A Berkeley Lab study finds India is uniquely poised to develop wind power with rich wind resources—but shrinking tax incentives could forestall development.
Berkeley researchers realized that external fluorescence output was the key to building a solar cell that busted the old efficiency records.
Berkeley Lab researchers say a model of rice gene interactions should help speed the development of new crops for the production of advanced biofuels.
Berkeley Lab scientists are building a “big picture” model to capture often-overlooked benefits of fuel cells and thus reflect their true cost to users.
