Slaying The Gasoline Car

Envision Energy will produce batteries for $100 per kilowatt hour by 2020, the Shanghai company's founder and CEO said at Stanford University, predicting the price will drop to $50 only five years later and end the reign of the internal-combustion engine. Envision's analysts realized they could achieve these goals after the company purchased Nissan's battery division earlier this year,  CEO Lei Zhang said

Trash Into Fuel

Climate change is already upon us, leading to extreme weather patterns, environmental migration, and many other major consequences worldwide. So it’s bittersweet to realize that today, as you read this, we have the technology to make a difference. What’s stopping us? Admittedly that’s an entire article of its own — from politics to power and

Waste-to-Energy: Sustainability Solution or Ponzi Scheme?

Reusing and recycling can only go so far. The buzzy new phrase in the waste management industry is “zero waste,” meaning producing no waste at all. Even after reusing and recycling, there is always something left over. Many environmentalists view turning that waste into usable energy (Waste-to-Energy, or W.T.E.) as one practical step toward true zero

Preventative Care of Our Planet..

Parties to the Paris Agreement, virtually all countries, aim to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5°C. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently completed an assessment of the scientific literature related to warming to 1.5°C.1 Since

Q&A: ‘Sustainable energy makes people bankable’

India’s investments in renewable energy are growing fast. The country plays an important role in global efforts to meet emission targets: its burgeoning middle-class has growing energy demands, while a large number of people still live in rural poverty without access to power. Harish Hande, co-founder of the Bangalore-based company SELCO, believes that renewable energy needs

Materials scientist creates alternative to batteries for wearable devices

A major factor holding back development of wearable biosensors for health monitoring is the lack of a lightweight, long-lasting power supply. Now scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst led by materials chemist Trisha L. Andrew report that they have developed a method for making a charge-storing system that is easily integrated into clothing for

A skills gap is jeopardizing efforts to end energy poverty

New technologies and business models create a constant churn of labour market disruption. Robots, driverless cars and other forms of automation will mean millions fewer jobs worldwide. On the other hand, fast-growing renewable energy technologies are catalyzing huge numbers of new jobs – 10.3 million at the last count – with massive potential for more.

Harnessing the power of sustainable energy

Energy production can be expensive, or inefficient, or toxic to the environment — or some unfortunate combination of the three. But Jesse Hinricher thinks it doesn’t have to be. Hinricher, an MIT senior majoring in chemical engineering, has been conducting research focused on specialized batteries that could be plugged into the grid to provide renewable

Could Energy Efficiency Be The “Cornerstone” For A Sustainable Energy System?

The International Energy Agency has claimed that a string of the right energy efficiency policies implemented around the globe could, on its own, result in the peaking of greenhouse gas emissions followed quickly by a global decline even as the global economy doubles. Writing in a report earlier this month, entitled Energy Efficiency 2018, the International
