a nuclear reactor that creates more fissile material than it consumes
2 of 6
Oscillating water columns
devices that generate energy from the rise and fall of water caused by waves and tides in the ocean
3 of 6
Hydrogen economy
proposal that hydrogen storage could be used to allow society to be run on abundant, convenient energy from renewables
4 of 6
Energy efficiency
the proportion of the energy being used that actually achieves the desired task. If energy is used efficiently then less is required.
