With the U.S. administration canceling pipelines, cutting of oil and gas property leasing, pressuring finance not to loan or invest has already pressured petroleum products’ pricing way up. Add to that the Russian Federation’s new war in the […]

The Carnegie Institution for Science’s work shows nuclear power would be crucial in helping the world reach a key goal of zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century. The research shows the case is especially true in countries with low wind resources. The study results have been published in Nature Energy by Lei […]

Today two of the biggest power grids on the planet are connected by only seven small threads. Those seven threads (technically, they’re back-to-back, high-voltage, direct-current connections) join America’s Eastern and Western interconnections and have 1,320 megawatts of electric-power handling capacity. The seam separating the eastern and western grids runs, roughly, from eastern Montana, down the […]

Texas A&M University researchers have used advanced data science methods and ideas from the social sciences to compare the performance of different wind turbine designs. With a global impetus toward utilizing more renewable energy sources, wind presents a promising, and increasingly tapped resource. Despite the many technological advancements made in upgrading wind-powered systems, a systematic […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers tried to make the case for prioritizing public policy to help move long-haul trucking from diesel to electric. The leading payoffs are being described as having huge gains in addressing the climate crisis and avoiding premature deaths due to local vehicular pollution, which disproportionately affects communities of color. Truck […]
