Pannelli fotovoltaici: uno sguardo al futuro

The photovoltaic panels have two main problems: an efficiency which is still very low and makes the produced energy not very cheap, and the difficulty to store electricity. An American engineer at Duke University, North Carolina, has created a system of solar panels capable of transforming a mixture of water and methanol into hydrogen, to [...]

Auto elettriche: sensibilità economica nella progettazione

“Electrical, solar, hydrogen, compressed air, magnetic. Engines powered by the sun and wind, driven by biological battery or seaweed. Vehicles body built with biodegradable chocolate, bamboo, hemp. Flying or sailing cars running through four hundred kilometers.” Technological delirium or perhaps a way to not change anything? […]
