Developing Nuclear Power As An Alternative Energy Source

Posted by Derek Robson on Friday, November 20, 2009, In : Alternative Energy 
Many researchers believe that harnessing the power of the atom, in fission reactions, is the most significant alternative energy resource that we have, mostly for the immense power that it can generate.

Nuclear power plants are very “clean-burning” and their efficiency is rather staggering. Nuclear power is generated at 80% efficiency, meaning that the energy produced by the fission reactions is almost equal to the energy put into producing the fission reactions, in the first place.

Using Fuel Cells for Small Household Appliances

Posted by Derek Robson on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, In : Alternative Energy 

Fuel cell research and technology has come a long way, especially when you consider that the researchers have now developed an alternative energy source for small household appliances, such as cameras, camcorders, and laptop computers.  Cell phones can also use fuel cell power, as can vacuum cleaners, coffee pots, and microwave ovens.  It can be rather mind-boggling, when you think about it!

Developing fuel cells for small household appliances could be the beginning of a major evolution in n...
