These 3 energy storage technologies can help solve the challenge of moving to 100% renewable electricity

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.

Why green hydrogen — but not grey — could help solve climate change

Hydrogen could replace fossil fuels, but it’s only as clean as the techniques used to produce it. Almost all production comes from high-carbon sources, but new investments could change that.
The sun is setting on oil and gas. Creating green income trusts could give private investors incentives to massively scale up investments in new low-carbon energy technologies — and help the province of Alberta. (Pixabay)

Green income trusts could accelerate Canada’s energy transition

Research into income trusts shows that they once helped increase investments in oil and gas. They could do so again — but this time targeted towards low-carbon technologies.

How will we travel the world in 2050?

More than a century since humans learned to fly, we need to revolutionise how we stay up there.

How protons can power our future energy needs

A new rechargeable ‘proton battery’ - made chiefly from carbon and water - promises to outperform conventional lithium-ion batteries, while also being more environmentally friendly.

Of renewables, Robocops and risky business

A local council goes for hydrogen. A state government goes for lithium and mirrors. They are taking punts on technology. What are the risks?
Hydrogen fueling stations like this could become more common if materials scientists and other researchers keep pushing for new breakthroughs. fueling station photo via shutterstock.com

Finding better ways to get hydrogen fuel from water

Modifying chemicals’ molecular properties can make ‘splitting’ hydrogen from water more efficient.
