Green tech among projects backed by £50m fund


Emerging low carbon technologies are to benefit from a new £50 million fund announced by the Government, writes Energy Live News.

The cash will be allocated to British inventors that want to turn their ideas into commercial products in seven areas including energy efficient computing, energy harvesting and graphene.

Energy efficient computing include designing hardware and software to “reduce the energy needed to execute computing processes” while energy harvesting has been described as the “scavenging” of low levels of energy from environmental temperature gradients, vibration or pressure that can be used to enable miniature electronic devices to power independently.
