Power up! The Future of Energy
The focus of this issue of Research*EU results magazine is ‘Power-up! The future of energy!’ In this edition we interview Dimitrios Mendrinos of the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving in Greece. As programme coordinator of the Ground-Med project, he is working on the development of a ‘ground-source heat pump’ to harness renewable energy from the natural heat source found in subterranean rocks. We also interview Professor Liisa Viikari on second-generation biofuels.
The ‘energy and transport’ section continues with other examples of research into greener engines, novel energy sources and new, more efficient production techniques. These ‘specials’ start with ‘Eco-engine systems for ships’, while others can be found in the ‘industrial technologies’ section.
The ‘biology and medicine’ section opens with an article entitled ‘New light on genetics of autism’, while the feature article in the ‘environment and society’ section is ‘Modelling land surface and atmosphere interactions’ .
The ‘IT and telecommunications’ section, which sheds light on cloud computing and what the future Internet will look like, starts , while the ‘industrial technologies’ section begins with ‘Metal-mediated polymerisation for smart materials’.
