Solar-Electric Cars vs Biofuel Cars

It seems obvious to a person or decent scientific intellect like myself that solar-electric cars are more efficient than bio-fuel cars; however, the significant part of a recent study (click here for original) that determined that electricity generated by solar is more efficient than bio-fuels for powering cars is that the analysis considered many factors… Continue reading Solar-Electric Cars vs Biofuel Cars

Google Says Computer-controlled Drivers are Safer and More Efficient than Humans

In September, California’s governor Edmund Brown signed the bill that legalized autonomous vehicles or self-driving cars. Doing so wasn’t just about space-age headlines but a response to the findings of initial research by companies such as Google, which suggest computer-controlled drivers can be safer and more efficient than humans. Some might see such developments as… Continue reading Google Says Computer-controlled Drivers are Safer and More Efficient than Humans

Energy Efficient Technology Needs More Funding & Investment

A recent scientific study found that efficient end-use technologies are most likely to provide higher returns – and yet, when it comes to funding, they tend to get ignored. Currently, innovation efforts dwell on developing energy supply technologies, such as new power stations, instead of improving the manner by which energy is used. According to… Continue reading Energy Efficient Technology Needs More Funding & Investment
