Researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia have invented a device that can produce solar electricity while simultaneously purifying water. Writing in the journal Nature Communications, Professor Peng Wang explains how the device can distil potable water without compromising electricity generation performance. It does this by using the waste heat from a photovoltaic …
We’ve come to depend on electric power for many of our day-to-day activities. When there are outages, we feel the impact of that dependency, followed by a sense of relief when the power’s back on again.
Electricity has helped us stay healthier, work more efficiently and live life around the clock. Because electricity has had such a positive influence on our lives, science and industry researchers are constantly finding ways to provide electric power more easily and inexpensively. As a result, innovations in electric power have made the industry cleaner and more efficient throughout its history, and made electric service available to millions of homes.
