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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Oregon State University College of Engineering researchers have uncovered a way to improve the efficiency of a type of grid-scale storage crucial for a global transition toward renewable energy. OSU’s Nick AuYeung, who led the study along with Ph.D. student Fuqiong Lei note that moving toward net-zero carbon emissions means dealing with the intermittent, […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have developed a new water-splitting process with a material that maximizes the efficiency of producing hydrogen. The researchers expect to make it an affordable and accessible option for industrial partners that want to convert to green hydrogen for renewable energy storage instead of conventional, carbon-emitting hydrogen production from natural […]

The puzzle that bedevils renewables in electrification is storage. We usually think of batteries as the obvious solution and that is an excellent answer in small quantities and short periods of time. The problem lies in renewables needing daylight or wind to generate power and when the base energy source sets or dies down the […]

Aalto University scientists have taken a close look at how lignocellulose – or plant biomass such as wood – can be used for optical applications, potentially replacing commonly used materials like sand and plastics. A digital, urbanized world consumes huge amounts of raw materials that could hardly be called environmentally friendly. One promising solution may […]
