  • Generating renewable energy from ocean and river currents

    A device designed to capture and convert energy from ocean and river currents has been developed to provide a source of clean and renewable energy. The designers suggest that energy produced by the device will be cheaper than that from either solar or wind power and offer distinct advantages over standard hydropower technologies. Unlike other forms of hydropower technologies, such as turbines and ...

  • Past environmental pressures affect current biodiversity loss

    The negative effects of human activity on biodiversity may not be fully realised for several decades, or even a century for some species, new research suggests. Conservation efforts may need to be much increased to prevent declines of wildlife populations as a result of environmental pressures that occurred many years ago, say the study’s authors. Biodiversity in Europe is under threat from ...
