Wave Energy Prize Challenge Seeks to Halve the Cost

Compared to some of the other renewable energy technologies, such as solar and wind, wave energy is still in its infancy (OK, maybe its early adolescence), and so far, wave energy advances haven’t yet come close to producing a cost-effective solution for electricity production. And yet because some 50% of the US population lives within 50 miles of the coast, if it were more feasible, both in terms of efficiency and cost, wave energy could eventually prove to be a…

Smarter Solar Irrigation Model Uses Centralized Solar, Distributed Pumps

In rural areas of Senegal, getting water for irrigating crops often comes with a hefty price tag, not only in terms of the cost to buy the fuel for it (about $1 per day for an average gas-powered irrigation pump), and the time necessary to procure it from the nearest gas station (which could be an hour away by car), but also in regards to the polluting emissions of the pumps themselves, which are not clean-burning or very efficient. Because…
