A new electrode could help pave the way for efficient transparent solar cells that could be used as windows

With a view to one day developing transparent solar cells that can double as windows in homes and other buildings, an international team of scientists has demonstrated a new type of transparent electrode that can function as a key building block. The breakthrough overcomes some performance issues with previous efforts in this area, and lays the groundwork for advanced tandem solar cells that combine the strengths of two separate but complimentary technologies.

WND Exclusive – Batteries can’t do the Job Greenies Think

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

It seems that one of the major objectives of the Biden administration, and I guess all Democratic politicians, is to dismantle everything that built this nation and made it great, and of course to spend us into oblivion without acknowledging any consequence for their actions.

The one warped initiative that may end up being the most painful is the push to shut off the energy spigot and somehow replace it with fairy dust and unicorn farts.

Yes, I’m talking about the fantasy that green “renewable” energy can replace our current, efficient and abundant fuel sources like coal, oil and gas – and, of course, our cleanest and greenest source of energy, nuclear, which the left will barely acknowledge. read more

Video Podcast – Feds Say no help for Colonial – Corporal has Two Mommies

by: Brent Smith

The Biden administration was asked whether they would help Colonial Pipeline with their ransomware issue. The spokesperson said NO, they would not. She explained that since Colonial was a “private” company, it really was not up to them to help.

I test the absurdity of this claim by flipping it around, using the Trump administration and Planned Parenthood.

The Army has a new “Woke” recruiting campaign cartoon. It’s not exactly the tough ombre campaign we’re used to seeing from the U.S. military. Rather than concentrating on “all you can be,” they went full woke. It’s disappointing to say the least. read more

Video Podcast – Liz Cheney Out – Our Vulnerable Power System

Republicans are getting rid of that traitor Liz Cheney. Yep, ole Liz was against Donald Trump from word go – like literally everything he did, and that the party needed to TownHall puts it, Cheney’s belief “that the GOP needs to wash its hands of Donald Trump.”She couldn’t be more wrong.

So the dirty hackers, known as “Darkside,” pulled off the most significant and successful attack on energy infrastructure we know of in the United States.But John McClane showed how to defeat them! read more

Fast-building its EQ family, Mercedes-Benz brings all-electric power to the flagship of the brand: the S-Class. After months of teasing, it has finally given the all-new EQS a proper world premiere. The electric sedan explores the highest echelons of the electric market with a range that pushes 500 miles, a sleek, slippery design that Mercedes defines as the world’s most aerodynamic, and more tech than some Silicon Valley zip codes.

Advances in transparent solar cells mean that soon we might be able to install them into windows and greenhouses. But in the latter case, would they deprive plants of vital sunlight? To find out, researchers at North Carolina State University grew lettuce under various wavelengths of light, and found that the plants did just fine. read more

There are energy sources all over the place, if you know where to look. Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have now designed new modular nanogenerators that can harvest energy from a variety of different types of motion, such as ocean waves or a person’s body movements. read more

Alauda Aeronautics

We first heard of Alauda’s plans for a flying electric racing vehicle series in late 2017, when the Australian startup’s Matt Pearson launched a Kickstarter to gauge interest and raise funds. The team announced its international public debut in mid-2019, and has now unveiled a full-sized, fully functioning electric flying racing car – the Airspeeder Mk3.
