Off Grid Energy Independence

Plant Biomass Waste for Self Powered Biomedical Devices

An innovation turning waste material into stretchable devices may soon provide a new option for creating self-powered biomedical inventions.

Renewables Increasingly Beat Even Cheapest Coal Competitors on Cost

Renewable power is increasingly cheaper than any new electricity capacity based on fossil fuels. Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2019 shows that more than half of the renewable capacity added in 2019 achieved lower power costs than the cheapest new coal plants.

Upcoming Webinar on the Topic of Hydrogen Economy

In this webinar, IDTechEx Technology Analyst Daniele Gatti, will provide a complete overview of the hydrogen economy, and technical specifics of fuel cells and electrolysers.

Hydropower Plants to Support Solar and Wind Energy in West Africa

Hydropower plants can support solar and wind power, rather unpredictable by nature, in a climate-friendly manner. A new study in the scientific journal Nature Sustainability has now mapped the potential for such "solar-wind-water" strategies for West Africa: an important region where the power sector is still under development, and where generation capacity and power grids will be greatly expanded in the coming years.

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic installations, where they could perform for more than a decade in this less demanding role.
