Infrared: A new renewable energy source?
HARVARD PHYSICISTS PROPOSE A DEVICE TO CAPTURE ENERGY FROM EARTH’S INFRARED EMISSIONS TO OUTER SPACE
By Caroline Perry
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.
Physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) envision a device that would harvest energy from Earth’s infrared emissions into outer space.
Heated by the sun, our planet is warm compared to the frigid vacuum beyond. Thanks to recent technological advances, the…
