Individual neighborhoods will be intimately involved in providing local solutions to collective problems. One measure will be distributed renewable energy production—energy produced at local levels, either by solar technology, wind or other methods, will push cities to achieve their net-zero targets.
Indonesia is a country with huge renewable energy potential, essentially to enable the Net Zero 2060 ambition. The figure summarizes three years of research by Ph.D. candidate Jannis Langer on renewable resource mapping in Indonesia. His research has been published in a series of articles appearing in Energy, Renewable Energy, and iScience.
Even as the world slowly begins to decarbonize industrial processes, achieving lower concentrations of atmospheric carbon requires technologies that remove existing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, rather than just preventing the creation of it.
The building and construction sector currently accounts for approximately 4.5% of Norway’s greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are derived mainly from fossil fuels used for transport and the operation of construction machinery.
As the world undergoes the great energy transition—from fossil fuels to alternative energy and batteries—rare earth metals are becoming more precious.
Doing an experiment with a cake on a cookie sounds simple. But when researchers from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) developed a unique dataset for combining 2D graphene and 3D tin, the process was all but simple—it required a great deal of computing power.
Growing geopolitical fragmentation since the invasion of Ukraine has hit commodity markets, threatening to slow the transition to renewable energy as the world looks to combat climate change, the International Monetary Fund said Tuesday.
Flat coin cell batteries (the kind used in watches) have been around for decades. But the combination of solid and liquid components makes it very hard to see how the components fail inside these batteries.
When it comes to our planet’s future, we all share a collective responsibility to explore innovative solutions that reduce pollution and promote sustainable living. One such revolutionary technology that has been capturing my attention lately is the microbial fuel cell (MFC). It’s not just another energy source; it’s a game-changer that promises to transform our world for the better.
India needs to increase its solar energy capacity by 36 percent a year for at least the next half-decade to meet its energy mix goals, an analysis said Tuesday.
