Diggers, buses and other heavy vehicles have been developed to be powered by hydrogen The possibility of a future powered significantly by clean hydrogen has taken a small step closer. The world’s biggest “green” hydrogen developers have joined forces in what they call the Green Hydrogen Catapult. Their ambition is […]

Organic solar cells are cheaper to produce and more flexible than their counterparts made of crystalline silicon, but do not offer the same level of efficiency or stability. A group of researchers led by Prof. Christoph Brabec, Director of the Institute of Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology (i-MEET) at […]

GETTY IMAGES “As Saudi Arabia is to oil, the UK is to wind” – that’s how Boris Johnson described the country’s potential to capitalise on renewable energy recently. For Scotland, it’s not the first time comparisons have been drawn with Saudi Arabia. Back when he was first minister, Alex Salmond said […]
