The summer of 2021 in Western Canada was one of the hottest on record. In BC alone, 59 weather stations registered their hottest temperatures ever on June 27.
Cavotec has been awarded three orders for its innovative shore power connection systems by global marine equipment manufacturer Samsung Heavy Industries, again highlighting Cavotec’s leading position as a trusted supplier of cleantech systems that are playing a key role in the modernisation and decarbonisation of the world’s ports. The total financial value of these orders is EUR 3.1M.
For the past 150 years, humans have pumped extraordinary amounts of greenhouse gasses, such as CO2, into the atmosphere and warmed the planet at an alarming rate.
An electrochemical approach developed at KAUST produces molecular-sieving membranes that could enable a cheap energy-efficient separation of light hydrocarbons, such as olefins and paraffins.
An international research team featuring two Skoltech scientists has experimentally demonstrated that a long-standing explanation for low energy efficiency in lithium-ion batteries does not hold.
According to researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), a recently discovered family of two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors could pave the way for high-performance and energy-efficient electronics.
A group of scientists at Empa has pushed the efficiency of flexible solar cells to a new limit. Independent measurements revealed an efficiency of 21.4 percent when these types of solar cells convert light into electricity. For comparison: the best efficiency of a non-flexible solar cell made of crystalline silicon is reported at 26.7 percent.
The novel Common Pressure Rail Hybrid system applied to excavators, resulting in?radical improvements in energy-efficiency, has received the Volvo Technology Award 2021.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently initiated funding of about $54 million for 10 new projects headed by DOE’s National Laboratories to enhance energy efficiency in the design and production of microelectronics.
A carbon-free electricity sector is the foundation for reaching a net-zero global economy. Electricity generates 25% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, and is key to decarbonizing other sectors of the economy, including buildings, transport, and industry.
