A closer look at water-splitting’s solar fuel potential

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Berkeley Lab and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) have gained important new insight into how the performance of a promising semiconducting thin film can be optimized at the nanoscale for renewable energy technologies such as solar fuels.

Act now to curb global warming – Sentinel & Enterprise

Thank you for a very important, though depressing, piece regarding significant warming in Siberia, and for confidence with which it links human actions to this crisis. It’s time we accept responsibility for the most significant public health threat of our…

Decline in green energy spending might offset COVID-era emissions benefits

Researchers have documented short-term environmental benefits during the COVID-19-related lockdown, but that silver lining could be far outweighed by a long-term decline on clean energy investments, a new study finds.

Renewable energy advance

(University of Delaware) In order to identify materials that can improve storage technologies for fuel cells and batteries, you need to be able to visualize the actual three-dimensional structure of a particular material up close and in context. Researchers from the University of Delaware’s Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) have done just, developing new techniques for characterizing complex materials.

Phase 4 May Be Dem’s Last Chance To Pass The Green New Deal

Yes; another “stimulus” bill is possible and perhaps even likely. Expect Nancy Pelosi’s “Green New Deal” to be part of this effort given that the Senate and the President said NO to subsidies for solar panels and wind turbines in…
