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 […]

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 […]

A new National University of Singapore study reveals that households respond to ambient air pollution by increasing electricity consumption. That in turn increases the pollution and carbon emissions that are co-produced in supplying the electricity. The study, set in Singapore, conducted by Associate Professor Alberto Salvo from the Department of Economics at the National University […]
