Smart inverters, the humble key to a secure and profitable distributed energy future?
Whilst the price of renewable energy has dropped dramatically in the last decade, overhauling our energy systems is about more than just economics. The expansion of renewable energy sources will challenge the capability of our grid-based electricity infrastructure to meet…
Solar-powered electric car: Computerised power plant on wheels
Solar-powered electric car: Computerised power plant on wheels An encouraging start Solar vehicles are powered by the energy from the sun. They are equipped with photovoltaic cells that convert solar energy to electric energy which is then stored in the…
Floating solar: pushing the frontiers of renewables
You certainly have seen ground mounted solar PV or rooftops with solar panels. Now, imagine solar panels floating on water instead of being on the ground. Amazing, isn’t it? Well, floating solar (or floating photovoltaic, FPV) is an emerging trend…
The clock is ticking, so we need to focus on what matters and need to quantify impact
Shifting the focus and Quantifying impact is needed as we only have 10 years left the defining decade The Paris Agreement entered into force in 2016 with the target of “Holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below…
The link between waste management, circular economy and solving climate change
Introduction Currently more than 50% of all municipal solid wastes on the planet end up in a dump or landfilled1. These waste management practices contribute to the release of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere as anaerobic…
SPACs, the climate tech space and new sources of capital
Investment required for climate change mitigation To meet the global commitment of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, so that society can limit global warming to 1.5°C, large investments into new technologies and companies are needed. IPCC estimates that the annual…
