New window coating can lower energy bill in two ways

New window coating can lower energy bill in two ways

Science
July 3 (UPI) -- Material engineers in China have developed window coatings that both regulate temperature and generate electricity. Scientists have previously developed coatings with one of the two attributes, but the latest breakthrough marks the first time the abilities have been combined. Researchers had to find a balance between the technology's three components. The coating needed to allow light for illumination to pass through, while filtering out infrared wavelengths and converting some of the solar rays into electricity. By combining a variety of materials and compounds, scientists found a happy medium. Instead of outfitting the window coating with transparent solar cells, researchers developed semi-transparent photovoltaics. The technology allowed scientists to harvest energy fr...
German poll reveals a trust deficit for U.S. energy

German poll reveals a trust deficit for U.S. energy

Business
June 27 (UPI) -- An executive from German energy company Wintershall said rifts in trade policy are leading to a lack of trust in the United States as an energy supplier. Washington D.C. hosts this year's regular World Gas Conference at a time when the United States is developing as a lead oil and natural gas producer and exporter. U.S. President Donald Trump has said natural gas in particular could extend U.S. leverage over the horizon into the Asian and European markets. A third-part survey of 1,001 adults conducted between May 7 and 9 showed U.S. influence is eroding, according to Wintershall. "The declining trust in the United States is certainly also due to political reasons -- here the publicly discernible differences of the past few months have left their marks," Thilo Wieland, an...
French energy company ENGIE sidesteps takeover questions

French energy company ENGIE sidesteps takeover questions

Business
June 26 (UPI) -- French energy company ENGIE said Tuesday it was addressing a Portuguese request by saying it wasn't bidding for a regional renewable unit of EDPR. Bloomberg News, citing sources with knowledge of the issue, reported Monday that the French energy company was considering a takeover of the Portuguese segment of EDP Renovaveis with an eye on its U.S. portfolio. In a statement Tuesday, the French company said it was responding to requests from market authorities in Portugal and recent speculation by saying it was "constantly" looking at investment opportunities. "That said, ENGIE has not taken any decision in relation to EDPR and currently is not preparing the launching of any takeover bid over shares issued by EDP Renováveis," its statement read. EDPR, which has its h...
Caffeine could protect the heart by helping it make energy, mouse study finds

Caffeine could protect the heart by helping it make energy, mouse study finds

Health
Coffee can do more than just keep people awake for the day -- studies have shown that moderate amounts of caffeine, like what's in coffee, can actually protect the heart. A new study looked at possible reasons for those beneficial effects, by studying the genes of mice. "We wanted to do this study to show people coffee is not as bad for your heart as people thought for a long time," co-author Dr. Judith Haendeler, medical faculty at the HHU Duesseldorf and IUF-Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine, told ABC News. But why could coffee-like caffeine levels be helpful for the heart? Building on their previous research that showed that caffeine could help with the repair of cells lining blood vessels, called endothelial cells, researchers at the Heinrich-Heine-University a...
