Could Earth's infrared emissions be a new renewable energy source?
Harvard physicists Federico Capasso and Steven J. Byrnes are part of a team that proposes a new way to harvest renewable energy Could it one day be possible to generate electricity from the loss of heat from Earth to outer space? A group of Harvard engineers believe so and have theorized something of a reverse photovoltaic cell to do just this.
Harvesting the Earth's infrared energy
Man has shown considerable ingenuity in seeking out renewable energy - chasing after wind, tides, biomass, sunshine and more.
Renewable Energy Device Captures Energy from Infrared Emissions to Outer Space
When the sun sets on a remote desert outpost and solar panels shut down, what energy source will provide power through the night? A battery, perhaps, or an old diesel generator? Perhaps something strange and new.
