Despite the growing popularity of solar and wind power, the two renewable technologies still suffer from one glaring weakness: both generate power at nature’s mercy.
Their intermittent productivity is widely known. Now, a team of scientists at Stanford University and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have developed a new technology that may address this flaw. READ MORE
Perhaps nothing showcases technology’s ability to innovate and change lives better than the science behind renewable power. Solar power’s high cost is well-established, but scientists at CalTech are developing cells with such hyper– efficiency they could potentially eclipse the question of price. READ MORE
We have seen it before in the movies—machines so smart they start to talk to each other and think for themselves, to the point where they even turn against the humans who created them.
If this is starting to sound a little too much like “The Terminator,” have no fear. So far, the machines haven’t risen with malicious intent. READ MORE
As the Internet continues to expand its reach into every facet of our daily lives, so too does the speed with which we want to connect to it. One recent analysis confirms this trend, revealing that both Internet reach and connection speeds are on an upward trend around the world.Akamai Technologies is a Massachusetts-based provider of cloud platforms.

As digital technology occupies an ever-widening space in our daily lives, the prospect of total digital control over the household does not seem too far-fetched. In the latest iteration of the ongoing techno-evolution, AT&T recently announced the launch of a service that will give customers remote access to home security and a variety of other home management functions in a single system.

The volume of energy consumed by buildings and the importance of energy efficiency in reducing that consumption are both now well-established elements of today’s green power movement. At the point where the two converge, building commissioning services are about to take a spin. READ MORE
