Off Grid Energy Independence

New Technique Paves Way for Perfect Perovskites

An exciting new solar material called organic-inorganic halide perovskites could one day help the US achieve its solar ambitions and decarbonize the power grid. One thousand times thinner than silicon, perovskite solar materials can be tuned to respond to different colors of the solar spectrum simply by altering their composition mix.

Coldplay's Next World Tour will be Net-Zero

Coldplay has announced its next world tour will have a net-zero carbon footprint and released a sustainability plan that includes direct-air carbon capture technology by Climeworks. The British band accompanied the announcement of its Music of the Spheres tour with a detailed list of environmental initiatives that it said would reduce carbon emissions by 50 per cent compared to its last tour.

A Flexible, Seaweed Like Generator

Ocean waves can be powerful, containing enough energy to push around sand, pebbles and even boulders during storms. These waves, as well as smaller, more gentle ones, could be tapped as a source of renewable energy. Now, researchers have developed flexible power generators that mimic the way seaweed sways to efficiently convert surface and underwater waves into electricity to power marine-based devices.

World's Largest Wind Farm Fully Operational

The world's largest floating windfarm is now fully commissioned and delivering green electricity to Scotland's grid. The 50 MW Kincardine Offshore Windfarm is located 15 km off the coast of Aberdeenshire, in water depths ranging from 60m to 80m.
