Hydrogen is both a promising carrier for energy and a source for quasi-endless discussion. Since those discussions mainly deal with the way to produce it, they may be silenced soon. Natural hydrogen is just waiting under our feet to be harvested. Can it rescue the energy transition in time?
A new technology can make hydrogen from sunlight with record-breaking efficiency. The new device combines next-generation halide perovskite semiconductors with electrocatalysts in a single, durable, cost-effective and scalable construction.
The energy transition does not just change the energy generation technologies we use, but also requires the power grids to be updated. Swarm intelligence and AI are the latest tools.
Lithium-air batteries have a lot of potential for powering the future. These batteries are lighter and more powerful than traditional lithium-ion batteries, making them ideal for use in electric vehicles or other technology that requires a lot of power.
A novel technique called Underground Gravity Energy Storage turns decommissioned mines into long-term energy storage solutions, thereby supporting the sustainable energy transition.
The facts about nuclear fusion don’t support the hype around it that followed the recent “breakthrough”, as many media echoed it. Nuclear fusion will not contribute to solving the current climate and energy crisis.
All the LNG panic plans lead to yet another big threat to the climate: overshoot of the remaining carbon budget, thus leading to even higher temperatures.
A new gold fever may be at hand. Not about the yellow glossy metal, however, but something totally different: gold hydrogen. It comes from microbes that eat oil and produce H2.
The EU Batteries Regulation is crucial to guarantee sustainability requirements for the whole life-cycle and recycling of batteries.
The war in Ukraine may at first delay the transition and increase emissions, but ultimately will lead to an even faster acceleration in the pace of the transition, a new report finds.
