Parker Solar Probe – now in its 4th orbit around our local star – is designed to endure the sun’s heat and radiation like no previous mission. Data collected during the craft’s first 2 orbits were released last month. This week, 4 new studies in Nature have space scientists buzzing.
WASHINGTON — Emissions of planet-warming carbon dioxide from fossil fuels hit a record high in 2019, researchers said Tuesday, putting countries farther off course from their goal of halting global warming. The new data contained glimmers of good news: Worldwide, industrial…
Online site wind energy proponent site, Energiezukunft.eu here presents a commentary telling why Germany is seeing ever-increasing resistance to wind energy projects and how the wind industry could be seeing the final nail in its coffin. Behind the mounting resistance…

Best friends forever: renewable hydrogen could help provide more bandwidth in the grid for millions of battery EVs due to hit the road in the coming years
(University of Illinois College of Engineering) Redox flow batteries are an emerging technology for electrochemical energy storage that could help enhance the use of power produced by renewable energy resources. In a new paper, Kyle Smith, assistant professor of mechanical science and engineering, addressed some of its challenges with a new theory to predict how fluid flow affects the ability of molecules in a flow battery to react at the surfaces of porous electrodes.
(Advanced Science Research Center, GC/CUNY) Researchers applied a new modeling approach for long-term planning of the U.S. power grid under future climate and water resource conditions. The new approach shows the grid may need an additional 5.3% to 12% of power-generating capacity to meet demand and reliability requirements. The changes would lower water use and carbon emissions, potentially helping mitigate future climate changes.
