ERA Science Board Member Arthur Gossard Assists Great Solar Efficiency Breakthrough

Arthur Gossard, an ERA Science Board member, as well as a professor in the Materials Department and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was recently involved in a breakthrough discovery at the University of California Santa Barbara.

ERA Science Announces Energy Storage Focus for 2014 Prize

We at Environmental Research Advocates are excited to announce that the focus of the 2014 Energy Prize will be in the field of energy stoarge research.

We, along woth the world's science and energy communities, believe that finding a more efficient method of energy stoarge is critical to the future of alternative energy. Many strides are being made in the alternative energy sector, and capturing this clean energy for later usage is of upmost importance.

Top Innovations in Solar Technology

The future of innovation in renewable energy technology has us excited at Environmental Research Advocates!

Here we share a few important developments in solar technology research and design to keep an eye on in 2014 and beyond. These technologies can help make solar one of the most viable energy options of the future.

Reference our “Solar Panel Cheat Sheet” to brush up on how solar panels work, and better understand the goals of innovation in the solar sector.

 

Solar Energy Cheat Sheet

As solar energy becomes more and more cost-competitive with oil as an energy source, we at Environmental Research Advocates are very excited to see the incredible strides being made by solar scientists and engineers.  

For those of you who are less-familiar with solar panels and how they function, or if you just want to brush-up on the facts, here is ERA’s Solar Panel Cheat Sheet. 

How a solar panel works:

Study Reveals Imminent Climate Change Impacts

We at ERA Science are dedicated to promoting environmental research and technology, most of which will prevent or lessen long-term climate change and its negative impacts on the earth. The apparent increase in natural disasters in the past few years, however, such as hurricanes Katrina, Sandy and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, also concerns us about the more short-term effects of human-driven climate change; what sort of changes can we expect in the near future, and what can we do about them?

Graphene Supercapacitors Could Revolutionize Electric Vehicles

We at Environmental Research Advocates are excited by the potential implementation of graphene in renewable energy technologies.

The carbon-based super-material is making technology news yet again, as scientists in Korea claim they have developed a graphene supercapacitor that has the potential to drastically improve battery performance in electric vehicles.
