NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Under CEO Timothy D. Cook, Apple , perhaps more than any other tech company, strives to not only increase the impact it has on people's lives, but reduce the impact it has on the environment as well. In a video narrated by Cook, Apple has highlighted some of its green initiatives, including cutting down on materials it uses for packaging, using solar and renewable energy

(Phys.org) —A new solar material that has the same crystal structure as a mineral first found in the Ural Mountains in 1839 is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than almost anything researchers have seen before—and it is generating optimism that a less expensive way of using sunlight to generate electricity may be in our planet's future

Engineers have created new ceramic materials that could be used to store hydrogen safely and efficiently. The researchers have created for the first time compounds made from mixtures of calcium hexaboride, strontium and barium hexaboride. They also have demonstrated that the compounds could be manufactured using a simple, low-cost manufacturing method known as combustion synthesis

The first solar cell was built by American inventor Charles Fritts in 1883. Since that time harnessing solar power has relied on sunlight hitting solar panels which then converted it into power. When sunlight cannot heat the panels, very little power is produced.

A team of Chinese scientists did an impossible-sounding thing. They created electricity simply by dragging a droplet of saltwater across a layer of graphene. No big fires, no greenhouse gases, no fuss. They created energy with just a miracle material and one of the most plentiful substances on Earth
