Which energy strategy to employ in order to reach the 2050 goal

Researchers from Aarhus University have modelled the decarbonisation of the sector-coupled European energy system using very high-resolution data. The results are clear: To reach climate-neutrality by 2050 we need solar energy. And lots of it. What’s the cheapest, easiest way to honour the Paris Agreement of limiting the global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius? A Read more about Which energy strategy to employ in order to reach the 2050 goal[…]

€1 billion in innovative clean technology projects

The Commission is launching today the first call for proposals under the Innovation Fund , one of the world’s largest programmes for the demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies, financed by revenues from the auction of emission allowances from the EU’s Emissions Trading System. The Innovation Fund will finance breakthrough technologies for renewable energy, energy-intensive industries, energy storage, Read more about €1 billion in innovative clean technology projects[…]

The transition to a sustainable energy economy for industrial manufacturing

Most production plants today are still powered by alternating current. In the long term, however, research teams from the Fraunhofer Institutes for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and Integrated Systems and Device Technology IISB would like to see industrial manufacturing shift to operating with direct current. In the collaborative research project DC-INDUSTRIE 2, these teams Read more about The transition to a sustainable energy economy for industrial manufacturing[…]

H2020 Call – Materials for non-battery based energy storage

Specific Challenge: Sustainable energy production can only work well when the specific different energy storage challenges are solved. So, solar panels and wind generators do not deliver energy when no sun is shining or no wind is blowing. Batteries may not be the best solution to face all energy storage needs, due to cost, safety Read more about H2020 Call – Materials for non-battery based energy storage[…]
