Energy efficiency and cost management can improve any company’s bottom line; for small and medium-sized businesses burdened by higher energy prices, the difference can be crucial—especially
As solar panels become less expensive and capable of generating more power, solar energy is becoming a more commercially viable alternative source of electricity.
University of New South Wales (UNSW) Australia's solar researchers have converted over 40% of the sunlight hitting a solar system into electricity, the highest efficiency ever reported.
A new study from Vanderbilt University shows that the electric eel’s electroshock system bears a remarkable resemblance to a Taser.
An efficient method to harvest low-grade waste heat as electricity may be possible using reversible ammonia batteries, according to Penn State engineers.
A lightning rod is a metal conductor mounted on the top of a building and connected through a wire to the ground to protect the building from lightning. The rod should conduct the electricity from a lightning strike down through the wire instead of passing through the building. The rod is just a single component in the lightning protections system along with rooftop conductors and multiple conductive paths. Benjamin Franklin invented the lightning rod in 1749. The taller the building the...
Count Alessandro Antonio Anastasio Volta was born on February 18, 1745 in Como, Duchy of Milan. At age 39, Volta became a professor at the Royal School in Como in the physics department. A year later, in 1775, Volta invented a device called the electrophorus which generates static electric charges. He marketed his creation so well, that he is often given credit as its inventor. However, a similar machine was documented by Johan Carl Wilcke in 1762. He changed his focus to chemistry in...
The Electric eel, Electrophorus electricus, is a species of fish. It is capable of generating powerful electric shocks, which it uses for both hunting and self-defense. It is a top predator in its South American range. Despite its name it is not an eel at all but rather a knifefish. Taxonomy The species is so unusual that it has been reclassified several times. Originally it was given its own family Electrophoridae, and then placed to a genus of Gymnotidae alongside Gymnotus....
