Could hamsters help solve the world's energy crisis? Probably not, but a hamster wearing a power-generating jacket is doing its own small part to provide a new and renewable source of electricity. And using the same nanotechnology, Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have also generated electrical current from a tapping finger "“ moving the users of BlackBerry devices, cell phones and other handhelds one step closer to powering them with their own typing. "Using nanotechnology,...

U.S. scientists say they've developed a small-scale generator that produces alternating current by the cyclical stretching and releasing of zinc oxide wires. Georgia Institute of Technology researchers said their so-called "flexible charge pump" generator is the fourth generation of devices designed to produce electrical current by using the piezoelectric properties of zinc oxide structures to harvest mechanical energy from the environment. "The flexible charge pump offers yet another...

Researchers have developed a new type of small-scale electric power generator able to produce alternating current through the cyclical stretching and releasing of zinc oxide wires encapsulated in a flexible plastic substrate with two ends bonded. The new "flexible charge pump" generator is the fourth generation of devices designed to produce electrical current by using the piezoelectric properties of zinc oxide structures to harvest mechanical energy from the environment. Its development was...

By DAVID WICHNER A massive mining project began Tuesday on the Southeast Side - but it didn't involve any digging. Instead, the project at Century Park Research Center on South Kolb Road involved some tricky crane maneuvers as the first four of 10 massive generators were delivered for modifications. They are to be used in a Mexican mining project. Four of the 55-foot-long, roughly 130,000-pound diesel generators were unloaded from rail cars for modifications by Generation Service Corp.,...

By John W. Allman, Tampa Tribune, Fla. Jul. 12--UPDATED: 44 MIN. AGO TAMPA -- If a major hurricane hits Florida this year, causing widespread power outages, fuel will be available at certain gas stations thanks to a year-old state law. The law, passed in 2006, requires particular fuel terminals and retail stores to be able to operate on emergency power after a storm. To date, about 1,100 gas stations statewide have upgraded their facilities to use backup generators for at least 72...

By John Allman, Tampa Tribune, Fla. Jul. 11--TAMPA -- If a major hurricane hits Florida this year, causing widespread power outages, fuel will be available at select gas stations thanks to a year-old state law. The law, passed in 2006, requires certain fuel terminals and retail stores to be able to operate on emergency power post-storm. To date, about 1,100 gas stations statewide have upgraded their facilities to use back-up generators for at least 72 hours if needed, including 38...
