The topics of energy security and economic growth now encompass sustainability and decarbonisation. To achieve net zero emissions by 2050, many countries have passed laws and allocated subsidies and encouraged public and private investment in promoting renewable energy use over conventional fossil fuels.

News listings. Offshore wind developer Deep Wind Offshore has entered a partnership with the hydrogen company Hy2gen to produce green hydrogen from offshore wind. 'The combination of offshore wind and hydrogen has got massive potential. It is not possible to achieve net zero without green energy carriers, who will need a massive amount of renewable energy,' says Knut Vassbotn, CEO of Deep Wind Offshore.

Hydrogen energy has been like science fiction since the post-World War II period. Many have dreamed about being able to replace oil and natural gas with hydrogen, but limiting factors have been been the cost of production and safety issues. Now, widespread sun and wind power use as well as liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) advances are sweeping these issues aside to make hydrogen's $1/li

Nick Guidi is a senior attorney with the Southern Enviromental Law Center. . Chris Carmody is the Executive Director of the Carolinas Clean Energy Business Association. Last November, regional utilities launched the Southeast Energy Exchange Market, or SEEM, with great fanfare. They promised a competitive market that would bring consumers across the Southeast greener energy at lower cost, despite protests that SEEM's design was unlawfully discriminatory and unlikely to produce the claimed benefits. Over the past year SEEM's poor performance has proven its critics right and demonstrated that the energy trading platform is in dire need of a substantial overhaul — and a more ambitious design — if it is to be either lawful or beneficial. .

by David Chandler for MIT News. In their efficiency at converting sunlight to electricity, perovskites are becoming comparable to silicon, whose manufacture still requires long, complex, and energy-intensive processes. One big remaining drawback is longevity: They tend to break down in a matter of months to years, while silicon solar panels can last more than two decades.

Deconstruction of the dam structure was completed in September. This work prepares the river canyon for consistent river flows, something which the river canyon below the dam hasn't seen in 98 years.

However, doing it yourself also means you're responsible for the instillation and maintenance. And if you don't want to deal with the hassle of hardwiring your security camera, or replacing the batteries every few months, you'll want to invest in a solar-powered model.
