Sun-soaking device turns water into superheated steam

MIT engineers have built a device that soaks up enough heat from the sun to boil water and produce “superheated” steam hotter than 100 degrees Celsius, without any expensive optics. On a sunny day, the structure can passively pump out steam hot enough to sterilize medical equipment, as well as to use in cooking and […]

Schools and Colleges are Going Solar and Leading India’s Energy Transformation

Solar – not black coal – is beginning to power classrooms, dormitories, and canteens of multitudes of educational institutions across the country.
