Study Determines Theoretical Energy Benefits and Potential of Algae Fuels

Study Determines Theoretical Energy Benefits and Potential of Algae Fuels

It's theoretically possible to produce about 500 times as much energy from algae fuels as is needed to grow the fuels, according to a new study by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. However, limited by existing technology, the researchers found in a separate study that their algae growing facility is getting out…   » Continue Reading

Energy Experts Meet at The University of Texas at Austin to Debate Economics of Electricity Generation, March 24

The Energy Management and Innovation Center (EMIC) at The University of Texas at Austin hosts a forum for energy practitioners, policy-makers and academics on Thursday, March 24, to examine the relative costs of electricity generation, including solar, nuclear, coal, gas and wind.

How Mark Raizen and his lab — and some borrowed ideas — got atoms under control

Atom Stopper: In his quest to control atoms to a greater and greater degree, Professor Mark Raizen has borrowed ideas from chemistry, electromechanics and plasma physics. His journey demonstrates scientific creativity and the parts that serendipity and intuition play in discovery and that ideas can come from unexpected sources and arrive at unlikely times and places. It started in 2005 when Raizen took up the idea of controlling atoms.
