...or we could just increase the gas tax

Interesting results, but the policy recommendations seem like killing an ant with a sledgehammer. In the first study of its kind, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) researcher Alan Meier, working with Yuche Chen of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, have estimated the fuel consumption penalty of this popular and...

Renewable Portfolio Standards are Responsible for Much of the Green Growth

There’s nothing like a government incentive to grow green energy. And that’s why the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is saying that renewable portfolio standards enacted by at least half the states is responsible for 60 percent of non-hydro renewable sources. Those green standards vary by state but generally require utilities to offer a certain percent […]

Scientists push valleytronics 1 step closer to reality

Scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have taken a big step toward the practical application of "valleytronics," which is a new type of electronics that could lead to faster...Show More Summary

Revealing the fluctuations of flexible DNA in 3-D

An international team working at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has captured the first high-resolution 3-D images from individual double-helix DNA segments attached at either end to gold nanoparticles. The images detail the flexible structure of the DNA segments, which appear as nanoscale jump ropes. read more

New way to reduce plant lignin could lead to cheaper biofuels

Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown for the first time that an enzyme can be tweaked to reduce lignin in plants. Their technique could help lower the cost of converting biomass into carbon-neutral fuels to power your car and other sustainably developed bio-products. read more

Simplifying supersonic nozzle pressure monitoring

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 16, 2016 - A bit of serendipity while carrying out a routine calibration led a researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's (Berkeley Lab) BELLA Center to discover a new method to measure the pressure of supersonic nozzles. Show More Summary

Most precise measurement of energy range for particles produced by nuclear reactors

An international team that includes researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has captured the most precise--and puzzling--energy measurements yet of ghostly particles called reactor antineutrinos produced at a nuclear power complex in China. read more

BIPV News: Solaria Solar Windows Accepted By US GSA Green Proving Ground Program

Originally published on Green Building Elements After tests at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (LBNL) FLEXLAB, Solaria BIPV windows have been accepted into the US GSA Green Proving Ground program. Solaria BIPV windows will be...Show More Summary

Coupling 2 'tabletop' laser-plasma accelerators: A step toward ultrapowerful accelerators

Laser-plasma accelerators (LPAs) got the nickname "tabletop" because, as shown by the unique BELLA accelerator at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), they can boost electron beams to multibillion electron-volt energies (GeVs) in a few centimeters--a distance thousands of times shorter than conventional accelerators. read more

Scientists discover protein's starring role in genome stability, and possibly cancer prevention

If you have a soft spot for unsung heroes, you'll love a DNA repair protein called XPG. Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) discovered that XPG plays a previously unknown and critical role helping to maintain genome stability in human cells.

Researchers pinpoint the drivers for low-priced PV systems in the United States

Berkeley, CA -- The price of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installed on homes and small businesses spans a wide range, and researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have published a new study that reveals the key market and system drivers for low-priced PV systems. read more

Cyborg Photosynthetic Bacteria!

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Hack a Day

This is weird science. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have taken some normal bacteria and made them photosynthetic by adding cadmium sulfide nanoparticles. Cadmium sulfide is what makes the garden-variety photoresistor work. Show More Summary
