CARBON CAPTURE AND STORAGE
Negative emissions may sound like the latest descent into climate-speak, but they are fast becoming a much talked about concept in the climate and energy discussion. In the second half of this century, reabsorbing and storing more CO2 from the earth's atmosphere than is created through industrial activity is increasingly referred to as a crucial weapon for successfully combating climate change. Tobias Nielsen at Lund university, Sweden, shares his thoughts on the topic. ...
Two-thirds of the business potential in energy efficiency remains untapped; sales figures for plug-in electric cars; cheaper by half to cut emissions with energy saving than green electricity; renewables push coal off the UK grid for a day; BP data reveals green energy trends; wind power supply not that susceptible to still winter weather; fuelish energy subsidies persist
Countries with cool climates and reliable supplies of green electricity are favoured locations for these beating hearts of the digital age
Theme on Energy Efficiency part 1/5: The payback period for energy saving investments can be painfully long and the risk of no payback frighteningly big. There are ways to tear down both barriers
Theme on Energy Efficiency part 2/5: Norway has the world's highest proportion of EV owners and Denmark is electrifying ship propulsion. It is time to change the way electricity is billed for
Theme on Energy Efficiency part 3/5: Better engineering everywhere can cut industrial energy use in all applications
A unique engineering project has raised the bar for efficient energy capture from incineration of garbage and provided a sports facility in an urban location
