Beyond moving away from fossil fuels, one of the most promising strategies is trapping carbon and either sequestering it in the ground, or using it for other applications. There are a number of ways this can be done.
In PV systems, it is recommended to use copper core AC cables. If you need to use aluminum wires, pay attention to the transition method when connecting aluminum cables to copper wires or equipment with copper terminals.
What got us till here may not be sufficient to take us to the finish line. Persistent efforts at an accelerated pace in the right direction is vital to reach decarbonization goals by 2035.
A 30.8 MWh energy storage system (ESS) is under construction for the French transmission grid operator RTE. The site is one of three being established under the RINGO project, which will test large-scale batteries as a way to relieve congestion on the transmission grid.
A research and demonstration facility aimed at accelerating the development of low-carbon, market-ready bioenergy products and carbon-negative energy systems has opened its doors at the University of British Columbia.
IDTechEx have forecasted lithium-ion battery demand to reach over 2500 GWh for electric vehicles alone. However, the uptake of lithium-ion batteries is not without cost - they still present both technological and environmental problems.
The key switch has become commonplace for automation engineers and technicians who maintain and support these systems and understand the importance of the little switch in overall device operation and affects the underlying process.
