Wind turbines often can produce more power than is needed for electricity onshore. That extra energy could be put to work capturing and storing carbon.
A team of researchers found 35,000 pairs of existing reservoirs, lakes and old mines in the US that could be turned into long-term energy storage – and they don’t need dams on rivers.
Klaus Lackner is finding new ways to cut the technology’s high costs and energy demand, and he’s about to launch the first ‘mechanical tree’.
Innovative companies engage in many highly touted best practices. While they can enhance competitiveness, some are more important than others and need a strategy for effective implementation.
Small businesses are less productive, less innovative and pay staff less than big ones, and even before the pandemic they were shedding jobs.

How economic thinking on climate change has evolved since the 2006 Stern Review.
As the state copes with hurricanes and climate disasters, it is figuring out how to manage the slow-motion loss of its coastal land. But its plans could endanger the cultures that define the region.
The US is generating more electricity than ever from wind and solar power – but often it’s not needed at the time it’s produced. Advanced energy storage technologies make that power available 24/7.
The decision is supported by the government’s policy environment in recent years. This has aimed to increase innovation, and views technology as a way to achieve this.
As the fourth most innovative nation in the world, the UK is under particular threat.
The Army Corps of Engineers is planning a sea wall 6 miles long and flood gates. The infrastructure might protect downtown from a hurricane storm surge, but most of the area will still be vulnerable.
Until wonder is welcomed in all workplaces, the health of our society and our capacity to imagine new alternatives is contingent on the ability to experience and refine wonder in artistic spaces.
Some of the most powerful offshore wind is over water too deep for a standard wind turbine. Engineers found a way around the problem.
The pandemic has driven news platforms to shift towards paying for content faster than they planned.
There are five basic things to address while starting your own company: Need, idea, product, setup and market.
