A short time ago France approved a new energy development law which is going to provide updated energy a major boost with the utilization of renewable energy. Recently reports were released that by the year 2030 the full power depletion will be decreased by as much as 30 percent whereas the division of renewables is to more than double to 32 percent. These are elevated targets definitely which includes less nuclear, more renewables, broadening renovation amounts to improve power capability, concentrating on electromobility, the conviction where electric vehicles are used rather than cars and trucks controlled by internal ignition engines. There is also talk of a carbon tax jump. Continue reading

We are living in a world that can be described as a hotbed of opportunities. Opportunities that can even be found in garbage. Because of the high amounts of waste being produced annually, developed countries have been looking for ways to dispose off the garbage. Some have been transferring their garbage to less developed countries at a fee which does not help in solving the problem in the long run. In fact, it worsens the situation because it just makes the spread of diseases much easier. However, recent research has proven that garbage can be used to produce power. Continue reading

The ACS Central Science Journal Featured the new designer carbon results from the Stanford University Scientists which helps improve energy- storage technology performance. A chemical engineer professor at Stanford University and a senior author of the study (Zhenan Bao) revealed that the carbon from cheap coconut shells circulating in the market has several disadvantages. He pointed out low inter-connectivity that limits renewable energy transportation ability of carbon as a major disadvantage. Continue reading
