    • Scientists Use Molecular Layers to Study Nanoscale Heat Transfer (Outcome Magazine (blog))- October 29, 2012
    • It is at the interface between the gold film and the SAM, Losego says, where nanoscale heat flow is characterized. "Changing the chemical groups that are in contact with the gold layer allows us to see how different bonds affect heat transfer," he adds. More...
    • Thermal energy storage presentation (Isle of Man Today)- October 22, 2012
    • The presentation, organised by Epsilon Consultants (IOM) Ltd in association with the Institute of Engineering and Technology takes place at 2pm in the Broadway cinema. IFTech, a 'green' energy company which is presenting the talk, has completed more ... More...
    • U.S. Army To Look At Creating A "Super Engine" (Ottawa Citizen (blog))- October 22, 2012
    • ARL's Combustion Research Laboratory is a state-of-the-art, high-temperature and high-pressure combustion chamber that opened this summer for fuel spray and combustion research, critical areas of interest Defense-wide to facilitate the basic research ... More...
    • Bio-derived heat transfer fluid (Engineer Live)- October 15, 2012
    • CooltransSustain CTS is derived from a fully sustainable source, making it a greener alternative to traditional monoethylene glycol and monopropylene glycol-based heat transfer products. Cooltrans Sustain CTS is non-hazardous and can be used at lower ... More...
    • Geothermal Energy in Nevada: Ready to Take Off? (KTVN)- October 8, 2012
    • Northern Nevada is a hotspot for thermal energy, and today (Monday), over 2,000 came to the Peppermill for the Geothermal Resources Council Annual Meeting. Listening to the speakers we found college student Aaron Ochsner. Why did he fly out from the ... More...
    • $5.5M DOE Project to Create Low-Cost Solar Energy (Product Design & Development)- October 1, 2012
    • Photovoltaic solar energy is produced by direct conversion of sunlight into electricity, whereas CSP systems convert light into thermal energy, which is further converted into electrical energy. These different systems share a common problem: the sun ... More...
    • Identifying refrigerant fluids with low 'global warming potential' (Phys.org)- September 19, 2012
    • Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new computational method for identifying candidate refrigerant fluids with low "global warming potential" (GWP)—the tendency to trap heat in the atmosphere for many decades—as well as other desirable performance and safety features.
