Space energy technology restored to make power stations more efficient

Satellite-powering technology that was abandoned decades ago has been reinvented to potentially work with traditional power stations to help them convert heat to electricity more efficiently, meaning we would need less fossil fuel to burn for power. A new study presents a prototype energy converter, which uses graphene instead of metal, making it almost seven times more efficient.
