to basically generate electricity from ..
Growing urbanisation and changes in the pattern of life, give rise to generation of increasing quantities of wastes and it’s now becoming another threat to our already degraded environment. However,
Chemist Paul Alivisatos explains how to generate electricity from ..
Currently they are experimenting with this type of molecular thermoelectric device but, they call it Thermo-Tunneling. This Thermo-Tunneling Power Generation (TTPG)is currently being investigated by Darpa. Several leading nanotechnology experimenters have mentioned that the efficiency can be as high as 70% efficient. Most are reporting near 30% efficiency and that is much greater then the current 5% efficient thermo-electrics available today.
Scientists made it cheaper to produce hydrogen from water
Energy is harvested in many ways using the car and factory waste. Car and factory waste can be used for generating electricity by coating exhaust pipes with a thin material, which is a millionth time of an inch. Physicists also take advantage of the law of quantum physics, which though not used often enough, gives great results when it comes to generating power from the waste.

Electricity-generating solar greenhouses utilize Wavelength-Selective Photovoltaic Systems (WSPVs), a novel technology that generates electricity more efficiently and at less cost than traditional photovoltaic systems. These greenhouses are outfitted with transparent roof panels embedded with a bright magenta luminescent dye that absorbs light and transfers energy to narrow photovoltaic strips, where electricity is produced. WSPVs absorb some of the blue and green wavelengths of light but let the rest through, allowing the plants to grow. WSPV technology was developed by coauthors Sue Carter and Glenn Alers, both professors of physics at UC Santa Cruz, who founded Soliculture in 2012 to bring the technology to market.
Grand Challenges - Make Solar Energy Economical
For photosynthesis to occur, plants need: · Light energy from the sun · Chlorophyll to absorb light energy · Carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and from respiration in plant cells · Water which is absorbed by the roots and transported to the leaves by the xylem tubes....
